It has been such a snowy off season and it hasn't stopped yet. Eric and I have been moving into our new house and trying to get it together! Its hard with three pups running around and our busy schedules to organize the new place. Little Jenny is getting so big and is just as wild as her big brother. She farts non stop and had Eric almost throwing up! I know, TMI. Jenny is such wild spirit and i thought she was going to be my dog but she is turning into a daddies girl for sure! I have been in the studio working on my new album and writing with my favorite writers. It's going to be good, y'all.
I am so ready for Summer and our wedding in June! I cant believe i am going to be Mrs. Decker. I still get butterflies thinking about it, I am going to marry the man of my dreams in four months. We almost have everything picked out but still have a handful of things to take care of. I am so lucky to have such a helpful fiancé. I am not a big planner and never have been, but Eric is very good at this! I finally tried my dress on after getting the right size and color and it is beautiful! I cannot wait for Eric to walk down the aisle in my wedding gown and see Eric waiting for me. It's going to be an emotional moment for both of us, for all of us and I cannot wait!
To say the least...Jess and I have the moving bug in us! We have moved 3 times in the 2 years we have been together and constantly have the itch to get out and travel. With the headache of moving, we still love the adventure and challenges it brings. (Though it has been moves within a 30 mile radius ha!) Being it is my 'off season' I have more time to use my borderline OCD with organizing to help Jess and take care of wedding plans! It's been a fun but tedious process with all the details. Choosing the music and food was our priority because we all know that makes or breaks a party! Regardless of countless details, it is going to be a special chapter in our lives!! Watching Jessica walk down the aisle, proclaiming our vows in the grace of God and becoming a family is precious. In today's society it may not appear that way, but we definitely feel it is!
We appreciate all the love and support and are excited to share our journey through this game called 'life'. There is no right or wrong way of living; find your passion, set goals, appreciate what you have and respect what others have. Opportunities are not handed out, you earn them. Be willing to take risks and feel uncomfortable. Failing is not the end of all. Confidence comes from experience and experiences ignite growth! Seize every opportunity to grow as a man or woman and make a positive impact! (Had the urge to preach!)
Jess: Well the football season is officially over for the Denver Broncos, and although it was a bummer, these guys still had a hell of a season. I couldn't be more proud of Eric and his accomplishments this year. I feel like these guys are just getting started, too. Eric was very sad and disappointed after the game because it ended so soon, but he quickly realized this was a killer season. That's him, and the guys should be proud of themselves! We will get 'em next year!
Eric: The 2012 season is in the books. Definitely not the way we planned to finish it, but a lot of great accomplishments were achieved. Looking back at the beginning of the season, starting 2-3 and going into halftime versus San Diego, there were a lot of questions about this team. Since that moment, the Denver Broncos created their identity and went on an 11-game winning streak. During that streak, we all grew closer as a team and more confident in our abilities, which made it the best year of football in my career. Unfortunately things didn't work out the way we visualized, but learning from experience and coming back hungrier next year is all we can control!
Jess: Now that the season is done, Eric gets to tag along with me! (lol) I like to slow things down during the season because Eric really likes to have me around to take care of him and feed him! I have a lot of recording to do to finish my album, and some cool things are in the works! Before we get started though, I know Eric wants to go on vacation to relax. Off to Mexico we go!!! So far, Cabo is our favorite place to vacation and relax. We love the food, culture and, of course, the beach.
Eric: Wherever the sun is, Jess and I will be there. After a long, grueling season an escape to warm weather and good food is refreshing. I agree for sure, Cabo is our spot. I am looking forward to seeing Jess in the studio and hanging out with her during her label trips. We have a very busy few months coming up and not to mention, getting married!
Jess: Oh yeah! That thing, the wedding! Haha. I am the worst bride. I keep forgetting about that part. Eric is lucky that I am not a bridezilla. I just care about the part where we say "I do" before God. I already feel like we are married, we just have such a wonderful life together already. The reception will be a blast though, Southern style of course: )
We got a puppy! A new addition to the Decker dog family! Her name is Jenny Lynn and she is a golden retriever like Jake. We are so excited to have her, she is the cutest thing ever. She's actually related to our dog Jake. Let the potty training begin. Already a few accidents, but she is so cute we don't care. Our Yorkie and other golden are a bit jealous right now but they will grow to love her too. We are such huge dog lovers, and we would love it if y'all posted your babies' pictures too!
