Finally got the knot tied!

WOw! So we are officially a married couple! Man, we waited years for this day to happen! It was PERFECT! I'm going to do a brief timeline from Friday to Sunday just to lay it all out ;)

Friday June 17th

Rehearsal! Started at 4 at First Christian Church and we used the whole allotted time to make changes and what not! Everyone was there that needed to be and everyone cooperated *horrayyy*

The rehearsal dinner was right after the rehearsal, and was at Perkins! The food was beyond delicious! We had roast beef and bacon, cheddar wrapped cordon bleu. Lets just say the chicken was amazing. The cream corn was good too! It was so pretty in the back room too, Colton's grandma, who we call Mernie, was in charge of it all, and did a wonderful job!

After the rehearsal we went to finish the legion decorations, right in the middle of filling up vases and putting up lights, Amanda tells us her mom just called to let us know we're in a tornado warning, so we wait around for a little bit, and the sirens go off. So there we are, in the middle of decorating for our wedding reception, and a tornado decides to erupt. So we all head down into the basement of the legion, and wait and wait and wait. Finally, we can go up and finish! It was pouring and hailing SO hard though. I can't help but think that its good luck the first tornado of the year in Mac happened the day before our wedding day ;)

Saturday June 18th, D-DAY!

The day started off great! Me and my bridesmaids all got our hair and makeup done at Integrity, Thanks to miss Chelsea Baker (Potter) who did mine, she did a great job! We all looked so purdy~!

We chilled quite a bit through the day.. Everyone kept asking if I was nervous at all, but nope, I was cool as a cucumber! Not one bit nervous. The girls on the other hand, were pacing and shaking their legs with nervousness :) Silly girls!

So, The clock chimed 6:00PM and we all pile out into the lobby. I stayed a bit behind, still not nervous at all. Nor have I cried all day, which I figured I would! Sarah, my Maid Of Honor, gets ready to walk down the aisle with Keith, the best man, and she turns to look back at me, she had a huge smile on her face, and I had tears in my eyes! It was SO surreal I was finally able to marry this person I have loved almost my entire life. My dad walked me down the aisle, and the only other time I got teary eyed was when we were saying our vows. Other then that, I was just so incredibly happy. Our ring bearers, Dylan and Jaiden, did amazing walking down the aisle and standing there, as well as our flower girl, my cousin, Reanna. It was just so perfect. No big catastrophe's, no fights or arguements. It was P.E.R.F.E.C.T!

The reception was beyond amazing, we had lots of good food, and dances. Something I will always remember and cherish! I still cant believe I'm a married woman, yet married to the man of my dreams. Wishes, prayers, hopes and shooting stars, whatever it is you may wish for, it may come true some day. Just keep trying..It took awhile for me, but everything is exactly how it should be. And we couldn't be happier!

Soooo after allll that.. Here are some pictures! In order :)

One. More. Week...

Well, to start off our day, we decided to get up early, on our days off, to go catch some of the city wide garage sales! We found such good bargains! My friend Heather has a little boy, who is about to be the big ONE! We got him TONS of clothes! Most of them were .10 each. Some even still had tags on them. we got probably 30 shirts and tops for less than 3 bucks. I definetely know what I'll be doing when we have kids! We also scored a patio table for under our purgola, for $20. Its a big 8 seater glass and cast iron table. They're around $100 at stores, and it looks new, not to mention how excited about it I am! Hehe!

We have so much house work to do before all of the family gets here for the wedding, we want it to look nice and presentable even more than it does :) So we better get to work now. That means Colton  has to get off the couch and quit playing Need For Speed, and I have to get off this dang computer!

Also, Did I mention I'll be a married woman in one week from today?

This will be my last weekend as a "single" lady, forever. Better enjoy it :)

Have a good weekend everyone!

So far, so good

So, Colton and I decided that we were going to start a blog, together, to keep our families updated on our "Shenanigans!" Most of my family lives close, but his mom and other family members lives states away. We figured it would be a good idea to keep them in tune with our lives :)

We are so happy that we purchased our new home, we can't wait for everyon to see it! I love it! It's so perfect for us, and our future growing family. It's just a few miles from my hometown and family, and even has Colton's big shop he wanted. He wouldn't even glance at a house that didn't have a garage! Crazy man. Anyways, here's some pictures, mostly before we moved in. It looks a little different now since we've decorated and painted though!
