A Picture Story About Me

Ok, so I saw this on Cristin's blog and I am bored so I decided to do it, too. Here are the rules (which I broke a little seeing that I was born, grew up, and still live in Huntsville): Put the answer to the question in Google Image search function, and you have to use the FIRST image that comes up--you can't use quotation marks when you search:

The City and State where you were born: Huntsville, AL

The City and State that you grew up in...where you consider "home":

New Market, AL

Well, it is pretty small, but they could have at least shown a picture of the mountains :)

Hmm...well that is not Alison Krauss...

Where it all started..

Joel and I went to the river this weekend with his family. It was kind of a special trip for us because that is where we officially met 8 months ago. When we were up there last Labor Day he did not really even talk to me (which is not like him at all). I think I just made him speechless in my "modest mary" bathing suit. He would not even ride in my dad's boat with me, go skiing, anything. So all day I made jokes about us riding in the same boat together and actually talking. After that awkward day, neither of us would have never thought that we would be getting married. It really makes you realize that God has an amazing plan for your life you are not even aware of yet. Back to this weekend...we did the normal river activities like canoeing, skiing, eating ribs (Joel's favorite) and just relaxing on the pier. After laying out on the pier for 20 minutes with Joel I realized that our week in Cancun is going to be a long one without "water babies sunscreen" in tow...

He got so sunburned. Anyways, here are some pictures from the weekend. Enjoy!

Here goes nothing...

Well here it first blog. There is just so much going on in my life right now I just can't wait to share it. To get you up to date, Joel and I are getting married on October 13, 2007at 7:00pm at Mayfair Church of Christ. So my (our) lives are consumed right now with wedding plans and such. Actually as of right now I am not really stressed about it, but I am sure I will be when it gets closer. I will keep everyone updated on all the planning and details of our upcoming big day and everything that goes on between now and then!
