What a wonderful day!!

Well I am sitting at work right now.....only 39 minutes before I go home! YAY!

My "Black Friday" was the best one yet! Three great things happened that day!

1- Mom and I went and did some major shopping damage! It was soooo much fun! I finished shopping for Glinda, Kenny, Kyle and Mom! That only leaves Nathan (who is almost done), Dalton, Dad and Sarah! I am so excited about Christmas this year! We woke up at 3 and met at 3:30 to start! We didn't finish until late that afternoon!

2- Nathan and I picked up our washer and dryer! It was so exciting! They are so cute and I am so excited that we have actually started buying things for our future house!

3- 3 weeks and 5 days ago I had to return my engagement ring because it was too hard to size. It was 2 sized too big and they said that I would have to order a complete new ring because if I sized the one I had, the diamonds would fall out because they would become too lose. Well they told us that day it would take 6-8 weeks to get my ring back in. So on "Black Friday" when Nate got off work, he came and met me at Belk to finish up our shopping. When he walked up, he told me that he had something for me. Out of his shirt pocket he pulled out my beautiful ring!!!! It only took 3 weeks and 5 days and I feel sooo much better! I wore Nate's mom's first wedding ring while mine was gone, which was beautiful, but I just felt a little naked without mine! So needless to say, I now have my beautiful ring back on my finger!

When I think of a wonderful day, I don't think I could have picked a better way to have one! I know it sounds dorky but even those 3 little things happening were such huge things for me! I will write back soon!



Happy Thanksgiving!

I am so excited for this week! It is such a wonderful time of year! I am housesitting for a wonderful couple (The Roberts) and am so excited about having Wednesday through Friday off! I am so ready for a break!

Mom and I are planning on getting up bright and early on "Black Friday" and being part of that craziness! Yes, we are going to be some of the crazy people who wake up a 4:00 in the morning to try and make it to Wal-mart before the rest of the crazy people!

Nathan and I also have purchased our first major appliance! A front loading washer and dryer! We are so excited! (what a weird thing to be excited for!) My cousin Kyle sent us a flyer last week of a WONDERFUL deal on these and we couldn't pass them up! Plus I have always wanted front loaders! Thank you Kyle!

Well I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and I also hope that everyone takes a moment to think about what all you have to be thankful for! We are so blessed to have so much and I hope that no one takes that for granted this year!




Ok! So today we finally booked the photographer! YAY! I am so excited! I can't help but get on her website and blog everyday! If you want to visit go to their website photosmem.com or visit their blog photosmemtalk.

Wedding planning is so much fun! I know that Nate might act like he thinks otherwise but he reallly is getting into it! I am soooo excited and am starting to get a little anxious!

I will keep you posted on any other recent events!

Love you all!


September 19, 2009

Well I thought that I would start this blog after looking at my cousin Kyle and his wife Allisha's blog! It is the cutest idea!

I thought this would be a great way to share with you the progress of Nathan and I's wedding plans but also to just help keep everyone up to date on life! We are currently planning our wedding which will be held on September 19, 2009. We could not be more excited about this time in our lives and are so thankful that we have such wonderful family and friends to share it with.

Currently, this is what we have done for the wedding:
I just bought my dress about 2 weeks ago and it is BEAUTIFUL! I love it so much! It was such a blessing because my Mom and I had looked at it a few months ago and knew it was the one but hadn't ordered it yet. The day we went in to try it on again and make sure it was the one they put all of their dresses half off. They were going to market the next week and needed to get rid of some of their current in stock dresses! We were so very thankful for that!

We also have our honeymoon booked! How exciting is that! We are going to Daytona Beach, FL for a week and are so ready! Another blessing, Nathan's mom and dad have a time share and we were able to pick from A TON of wonderful options!

We are booking our photographer at the end of this week. Nathan and I met with her last Saturday and LOVED her work. I ran into her at a bridal fair and fell in love with her photography and I knew that she was the one I wanted to use. The name of the company is Photographs and Memories and they are based out of Ft. Smith. The couples names are Bill and Alesha and they are awesome! I love it because they were just as excited as we were and they just wanted it to be a special day all about us! I am soooo excited!

I will post again soon and let you know how the photography booking process goes!

Love much-
