Pre-Cana Round 2

I figured since I posted about the first half of our Pre-Cana experience, I would just go ahead and finish my recap.

We had the first half of our Pre-Cana weekend on Saturday. It was very interesting and we heard from some amazing couples.

My favorite part about the weekend were these two books. Fiancé and I each had our own and after the topics we were addressing was discussed by the group and stories were shared by the couples leading the group, we were each asked 2 questions pertaining to the topics. 

Then we did 10 in 10.

We were given 10 minutes to answer the questions and then we would meet up with our fiance and discuss what we wrote and let the other person read our answers. It was really interesting to write things down and discuss different aspects of our pending marriage that we might not have addressed otherwise.

I guess that’s the entire point of pre-cana, now isn’t it? Either way I enjoyed myself.

Like I said before, this past weekend was gorgeous.

After we had some good talks, we took pretty pictures outside.

It was a long weekend, and by the last topic, we were both drained, but I felt we learned a lot and had fun!

We were given an official certificate saying we completed Pre-Cana together! Now I have to get this certificate in the mail to the priest! 

 

Did you have a good Pre-Cana experience? What was yours like? I would love to hear what other couples went through! Let me know!

In other news, here is a close up of my 2nd place medal from the weekend! I love it so!

The front is kind of generic, but I love how they put this little engraved piece on the back. Now I just have to add the year, and possibly the date and I will be all set to add it to my ever growing race board!

I might need to put this medal someplace special. Any ideas?

After the race and pre-cana on Sunday fiancé and I did a little barbeque-action with our neighbors and some friends. I had my first veggie burger and it rocked my world.

It was from Morningstar and it was amazing. I am all about the veggie burger now. Have you had any other good veggie burger brands? I need to get myself a box!

    I am glad you enjoyed it. Hubby and I did ours with the Catholic Minister at our undergrad and actually really loved it too. It is great when you can take the time to talk about the stuff most people don't!

    We're not doing Pre-Cana since we're not getting married in a church. We did want to do some marriage prep though, so we're using the counseling center on our campus (which is free). It's been a great chance to learn more about each other. Glad to hear yours went well!

    We did not do Pre-Cana either but I have eaten Morningstar burgers and my favorite brand is Boca – Original Vegan. Yummmy!

    Thrilled that you and fiance learned something about each other in pre-cana. When I did pre-cana it was good too, they make you talk about subjects that you might not ever think about before marriage. No, I haven't eaten veggie burgers. Love your new medal, must have it engraved too!
