Samuel & Kathryn

Last night my youngest sister, Katy, got married. I am overjoyed, proud, emotional, and in awe. Legally, she has been an adult for five years, but in my mind she is still eight years old. YES she can drink, YES she has graduated from college, and YES she pays bills and has a job, but she’s only eight. Trust…

Jumping In With Both Feet

I’m not one of those people who likes to test the water with my big toe, assess the situation, and make an informed decision about whether or not to jump into the lake. Instead, I prefer to live my life in the form of cannonballing into the lake, unsure of what I may find, but…

Marriage Is

It’s only been a few months, but I’ve learned a few things about marriage here and there. Some are silly, some are sweet, some are downright ridiculous, but I’ve come to learn that all the little things are what make up a marriage. So what is it to me so far? Marriage Is: Not getting…

WIFE : Will Ingest Freaking Everything

True life: I got married and let myself go. Immediately. It wasn’t a gradual slip into slices of pizza, eating cookies by the box, and drinking Coke nonstop, it happened literally the night of my wedding. Isaac and I got into our honeymoon suite, showered, and crawled into bed with a bag of Oreos and…

How To Not Die On Your Honeymoon

As the wheels of our plane touched down in North Carolina at the end of our honeymoon, I gave myself a mental high-five and said “you did it!!!!” I didn’t learn to surf. I didn’t learn to hula dance. I didn’t even go snorkeling in the tropical freezing cold Hawaiian waters. No, I was proud…

The Day We Said “I Do”

Now that I’m back home from an amazing honeymoon and semi-caught up on work, I can finally get back to blogging! So many times throughout the past two weeks I have wanted to write but just couldn’t find the time. SO happy to be back in a routine at home and able to slow down…

Quick and Dirty Updates

This past week has been crazy busy so I haven’t had much time for new posts. In fact, I’m pretty sure the next month will be fairly quiet on The Other Courtney. The wedding is just 17 days away and then I’ll be in Hawaii for 10 days, so hopefully I’ll be FAR too busy…

Sweating for the Wedding

60 days people. 60 days until I have to squeeze into a wedding dress and actually manage to walk, breathe, converse, and possibly even eat. This past weekend I had my final wedding dress fitting (eek!) and while it was awesome, it was also a little horrifying. The dress fits, I can zip it up…

2012 In Pictures

January Not only was it the highlight of my month, but probably my YEAR! I got to be in the delivery room with my best friend as she gave birth to her second son, Grant. Her husband was deployed in Afghanistan so we had him on Skype and the doctors let me document the whole…
