My favorite time of year is here! HOLIDAY SEASON! Too bad I am still stuck studying every free minute for that pesky CPA exam. Hoping to finish by the end of February. Anyway, I am feeling bummed in this moment because apparently, for the wedding they did right after ours, my wedding photographers started doing videos, too. For not only a wedding, but also for engagement sessions. And they are so cool. You can check them out here and here. HOW MUCH WOULD I HAVE LOVED ONE OF THEIR VIDEOS? A lot. That's how much. And I, too, love editing videos together like they are doing, so I could do the same thing myself. If I had the video footage. Of course, I can't film myself. So, I am sad about that.

The other reason being, of course, that I am busy studying. :( I cannot wait to be done with this stupid exam forever! I feel the need to create. Or decorate - but that is for another post. I want a cool, fancy camera so I can take really awesome photos, and I want to learn to use Photoshop, so I can edit them. And, I want to take movies and edit them into videos like Landon Jacob Productions is now doing.

And how Taylor Swift has been doing for a long time. :)

And, since I can't film myself, I'd need some willing subjects, too. I tend to think they are hard to come by. I feel like a lot of people hate being filmed or having their picture made. I love it, and I've always loved it. And I don't understand people that don't. At least Jake loves it, too. But, I can't just film him and take his picture all the time.

Anyway, back to the books.

Our engagement pics!

I was finally able to see some of the pictures from our engagement session with our wedding photographer, Jordan, of Landon Jacob Productions! Clearly, I had no reason to be nervous about her change of my outfit and my hair being down. I think the photos came out absolutely fantastic! Here are just a FEW of my very favorites.For those of you on facebook, there are a few more on there if you're interested in seeing them. I should be getting my CD with all the images on it in the mail soon, and I am hoping there are even more there, as there were some shots she took that she didn't upload onto facebook.

What do y'all think of them?

Holly and Alanna tagged me in this fun little game!

Here are the rules:
1. Open your first photo folder.
2. Scroll to the 10th picture.
3. Post the photo and the story behind it.
4. Tag 5 or more people.

Here is my photo:

This was February 2009, just after Jake and I started dating, right before our first Valentine's Day together. We were at Art Bar (my first time ever going there) for my old roommate Amy's birthday celebration. I LOVE this picture. It is a little blurry, and the wind from the fans on their dance floor had my hair going CRAZY, but look how happy we are. :)

I tag: Jake, Nilly, Mandy, Kim, and Rebecca.

Engagement pictures!

Today, Jake and I met one of our wedding photographers to do our Engagement photo session around downtown Columbia, and we had the BEST time! I was sooo nervous beforehand, mainly because I just didn't know what to expect, and couldn't imagine what it would be like to be "paparazzi"ed.... but once we met Jordan, she was as wonderful as she sounded on the phone, and I calmed down pretty quickly. She was so nice and put us at ease as she provided us guidance on what to do in the photos. She wound up having me take off the vest I was wearing, gave me her REALLY PRETTY scarf to wear, and TOOK MY HAIR DOWN out of its usual ponytail. :) As you all probably know, my hair is always in its ponytail... I cannot wait to see what the photos look like with my hair down. I'm a little nervous about that. Anyway, she said the photos would be on her blog within 2-3 weeks, so I have a little bit to wait. If you're curious to check out some of our photographers' work before then, their website is: Their names are Landon and Jordan Thompson, and they are a husband and wife team. We think they are GREAT. We absolutely love their work, and I am soooo excited to see the engagement photos that Jordan took today and for them to shoot our wedding! I'll try to post again when they get our photos on their blog!

Help me win $1,000!

Okay everyone, I need your help! Inspired Communities is having a contest where they are giving away $1,000. I don't know about you guys, but I could DEFINITELY use $1,000. Especially with this upcoming wedding and whatnot. Now, some of you may have already gotten invitations from me on facebook to join a group that Jake and I created with the instructions for what we need from you in order to help us win. If you are one of those people and have yet to help us out, please go do so now! Let me know if you need me to resend an invitation. If you aren't one of those people, (or if you are and just want to follow the instructions here) please do so now. Helping us out is really very simple if you have a facebook account. Here are the steps.

1. Become a fan of Inspired Communities. Click here. If this link doesn't work, just search for Inspired Communities on facebook. There will be two of them that come up, but you want the fan page, not the profile.
2. Scroll down until you see a New Year's resolution posted on their wall by me, Lindsay Tower.
3. "Like" my resolution.

And that's it! You have until January 31st, as that is when the contest ends. Right now, there is just one person ahead of me, so I need your help! If you know anyone else that would not mind helping me out, please ask them to vote as well. :)
