Bridal Shower

Today was such a great day. I had my bridal shower this afternoon from 1:30 to 3:00 and it was such a nice shower. I am so grateful to all of those that were with us at the shower and also with us in prayer and thought. My mom's friends are so amazing and hosted the shower for me. There are so many of these ladies that I have known since I was little and I just love them to death. I am so thankful to have people like this in my life.
Here are 10 of the 12 hostesses. 2 of them could not be there today but still did so much for me.
Here is the food table they had set up with my wedding colors. It was beautiful!!!

My mother, myself, and my mother in law.
Sheryl Ditto, me, and Brenda Hunt

Can you believe all this amazing stuff??? I am super excited to start cooking with all my new gadgets and toys.

Thank you so much to everyone for all your kindness and thoughts. I am truly blessed!

Bridal Photo Session

Today I will be taking my bridal pictures and I am sooooo excited. I have come up with some fun ideas that will be really different and will just be so my personality I hope. My mom, sister, and soon to be mother-in-law will be coming along. Natalie is doing my hair today at work and I know whatever she does will be amazing! I won't be able to post these pictures until after the wedding so Joseph can't peek, but I promise I will get them up as soon as March 7th is done.

On another note... be sure and check out 4 Frames Photo Booth Blog at It is such a fun site, and until I checked it out I wasn't even aware of how ENOURMOUS the booth actually is. You can fit 5 people shoulder to shoulder in it and see faces and everything soooo clear. This is the most amazing booth I have ever seen. There won't be the problem of trying to squeeze 2 faces into a tiny booth at our wedding. I can't wait to get in there and take some fun wedding pictures with Joseph and with all the special people in my life. I can't wait!!! If anyone out there is planning a wedding, you have to check out the 4 Frames Photo Booth from Aric Alan & Casey Photography.

Coming Soon.....

We were finally able to get our engagement pictures taken on Sunday. We have had some scheduling confilcts due to the cold weather, but Sunday turned out nice, about 60 degrees so we took the chance and went with it. It was so much fun and Joseph did really well. I wasn't sure how cooperative he would be because he doesn't like having his picture made quite as much as I do. We went to so many different locations and our photographer Niki Treadwell had so many good ideas. Joseph also came up with a lot of original ideas. We should have the pictures to view next Monday so I will be posting some of my favorites! I can't wait.

On another note... I have more exciting news. I get to meet with Aric and Casey today from Aric Alan Photography about booking the PHOTO BOOTH for the wedding reception. I can't wait. I am soooo excited.

My wedding is only about 2 months away, 53 days to be exact and I can't wait!

Happy new year to everyone! I hope 2009 will bring many wonderful things your way. How did I ring in the new year you ask? I fell asleep before the clock even hit midnight. I was super tired and couldn't even stay awake long enough to ring in the new year. Oh well, there's always next year right.
