And the planning Begins...

Over the last few weeks, I have started to do some planning. Michael and I have officially decided on a date, which is June 5, 2010. We will be getting married (that is still weird to say) in Fort Smith, Arkansas. It is my hometown. We are going to get married at my church, Goddard United Methodist Church. I am very excited about the church, it is so beautiful and wonderful. The reception hall is being booked today, and it will be at Golden Living/Venture or as everyone in Fort Smith knows it, Beverly Enterprises. I think I have decided the colors will be Navy Blue and Carolina Blue (baby blue).

Michael and I picked our wedding party the other night they are as followed:
Megan Wright-Maid of Honor
Veronica Slack-Matron of Honor
Laura Lyons Bryant
Kelly Allen Grady
Peggy Cosgrove

Zack Taylor-Best Man
Chris Skrocki
Steven Sperry
Steve MacDonnell
James Olander

Brad Reagan
Brian Penton
Eric Mallard
Brad Sperry

The decision was difficult, mainly because we didn't want to have everyone standing at the front of the church with us. Keeping the numbers down on bridesmaids and groomsmen were especially difficult for Michael. He wanted everyone. I kept joking that I didn't know enough ladies to keep up with everyone he wanted.

My Easter Surprise!

Michael had a nice Easter surprise for me today. When I got back from taking Megan to the airport, Michael told me I could go on a Easter Egg Hunt or as I will call it, The Treasure Hunt. He did not give me any clues except that it was jewelry. I proceeded to the Master Bedroom and starting hunting, through a box, the dresser, and finally the night stand. In the bottom drawer of the night stand I found a little square box with a really big surprise inside. Michael then asked me if I would marry him, which of course my answer was yes. Here are a few pictures of my new ring, but trust me the pictures don't do it justice.

About Us

My photo
Michael and I have been together since 2006. We met in college at the University of Arkansas and began our life together. We bought a house and moved to Fayetteville from the Chicagoland area in November 2009. We were married in 2010 and had our first child, a boy, in 2013. Our favorite thing to do together is travel and we have gotten the opportunity to go to lots of fun places. We are working, breathing, playful parents. Our fur baby and child are the center of our crazy life, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
