I chose black dresses for the bridesmaids because we have red carpet in the church and all the colors I wanted would have clashed very badly! I don't have any photos of us all together dressed! My sister was my maid of honor. Two of my bridesmaids were my roommates from Alabama. The 4th was my sister-in-law. One of my bridesmaids got married in July of 2008 so we chose a simple black dress for the bridesmaids so that we could wear them again in her wedding. It worked wonderfully. She bought a green sash and had them monogrammed for us to wear in her wedding so the dresses looked a lot different!
I wish I had more photos on my computer from the big day but I don't :(!
I wanted a "timeless" looking wedding. I didn't want to look back in 20 years and be able to tell that we got married in 2008! I think with the black and roses it really gave the whole wedding the "timeless" feel I was going for!
Thanks for stopping by!

This is my Birthday Bucket List. These are the things I wish to accomplish before I turn 25!
- Lose weight! I would like to lose 20 pounds through diet an exercise. I want to really stick to the plan I know works for me!
- Find a hobby!
- Organize our basement. (It's probably going to take me all year to tackle this task!)
- Be a better wife! By listening, being less selfish, and not nagging!
- Find my purpose in life!
These are my "birthday resolutions"!
I am also working on another post for today. I have decided that instead of making "New Years Resolutions" I am going to make birthday resolutions. I am still working on my "Bucket List before I turn 25"! I will have that post later today I hope!

Friday night Mom, Sister, Ally, Bella, Drew, Ava and I headed up to the lake. My aunt and uncle were there with their German exchange student from a couple of years ago. He was here visiting with his friend. It was good to see our "German Cousin" again! He was here the Christmas that Patrick and I got engaged he was able to share in such a special time in our lives. Before he left he asked if we could move the wedding up so he could be there. I always thought that was so sweet. My cousin, Mark, and I drug them all over the lake trying to teach them to ski, wakeboard, and kneeboard. I can do all three but none of them very well, so the fact that I was the teacher is pretty hysterical!
Drew and Ava in their goggles!
Me on the wakeboard!
Traditional picture on the wall. I have both Ally and Gracie's first trips to the lake on the wall!
Bella was tuckered out!
Cousins! I think they are going to be life long friends!
Aaron and his friend Moritz. ( I think that is how you spell it!) Ally in the sunset! It was a full day! Sunrise to Sunset!

Ms. Bella is staying with us for a few days while her big brother is playing in the World Series! Bella is Patrick's brother and sister-in-laws toy poodle. She is 6 months old a one big ball of energy! Patrick and I were trying to remember Ally when she was this age but we don't ever remember when she had this much energy. I guess having a 6 year old "big brother" and a 4 year old "big sister" to play with will give you lots of energy! Ally is exhausted. They have played and played and played! It is so funny because when we watched Bella back in May she was smaller than Ally, now she is about an inch taller and longer and 2 pounds heavier! Here they are playing! It is so entertaining to watch them play together. They are just like children in the way that they get along!

Reid you will be missed. I think you would make a fun bachelor if Jake turns down the offer!
I'm not sure I like what I've been reading on the spoiler sites. We will have to see how it all unfolds!

- Lima beans! She made the best lima beans and my dad tries and tries but they are not the same!
- The Hot-Wheels track. She had feet and feet of track we would build a huge ramp and watch them fly.
- Cherry winks!
- Bubble lights on the tree at Christmas!
- My sister and I spent the night with her at the assisted living home (she lived there before she went to Texas) and she told us we'd better bring our own breakfast because she wasn't getting up early enough for breakfast in the dining room!
- Her sweet little laugh. I can still see her smile when I think of her!
Her service was so personal and sweet! She was an avid gardener so my dad felt it fitting that he go and cut flowers out of his yard, he learned his gardening tips from her, for the blanket and it was beautiful!
