My First Christmas in My First Home!

Drum roll please..........the photos are here!
Well, I had to be sensible and remember that we still have a wedding to pay for, but I definitely wanted to do something to decorate my first house for it's first Christmas. Occasionally, it hits me still....I actually have a house I can decorate, that's mine! LOL
Josh and I haven't done much yet as far as painting and new furniture goes since we are still preparing for the wedding in March and our new lives together, but I was so excited to at least get our tree up and decorated. My very good friend, Melissa, even got us our "First Home" ornament that I will treasure for years to come! I also got a few extras to adorn our mantel and go with the tree. I think it pulled together quite nicely. Maybe next year we can tackle the outside. Hope you enjoy it too, and if I don't see you, have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!

The Proposal Story

Thanks so much everyone for the well wishes! I'm so excited to finally be able to share this special time with the special people in my life.
Here's the Proposal Story for those that want to know:

It was simple, but so sweet (all i could ask for) and sentimental to both of us, which is what i wanted. I will need to go back almost a year to the day (I didn't realize this until he was talking about it on Saturday (June 6th). We got back in touch last year (May 2008) and had been corresponding over the phone. Finally, he was able to arrange to come to Montgomery for the day to see me. We met up in town and went to Shakespeare to sit and talk.
Those of you who don't know, we dated once before about 6 years ago and have known each other for almost 11 years total) Well, being almost 30 last year, and knowing I could very well endanger my heart again if I was allowed, I wasn't wanting to play games. So I came right out and asked Josh, "What do you want?" He just as plainly said, "I want you"...Fast forward to Saturday, June 6th, 2009.
There we were, sitting on a bench in the Shakespeare garden again. He started talking about when we were here last and I realized what he was referring to. He told me since this is the place I asked him what he wanted. And this was the place he told me, it was me...he wanted to bring me back here to ask me to spend the rest of my life with him. I was beaming already, so all I could say was YES!! We took the long way back to the car and just walked around for a while, but then he wanted to get me home while there was still daylight. Me being me...of COURSE I was going to want to take pictures of the ring and us. So I did =) -see the post below.

Well, there it is. Nothing extravagant, but it was perfect to me and as I said...sentimental to the both of us. He told me in 2001 (before we even dated) that we were going to get married someday. He wasn't kidding! Thanks for reading.

I'm Engaged!

So I've been a little preoccupied, what with closing on a house and all...But it's finally happened! As of last night, I'm Engaged!! I have a fiance, we bought a house and are finally getting to start our lives together.
I'll tell the story to who wants to know, but I know most of you are just interested in the photos I'm sure!! LOL
So without further adieu, here they are:

I'm a Homeowner!!

As of today, I join the vast world of homeowners...It was nasty and rainy, but closing went off without a hitch. I even have a key!! But, alas...I can't move in until Saturday morning. But it's ok; I've got some last minute stuff to do until I'm ready. But I'm almost there.

Anyway, I say that to inform you that I will hopefully be posting pix soon of the new digs, but I will also be offline for just a few days until the cable guy can come out and get me back online.

See you soon!

I know...I know...

Yes, I know. Christmas has come and gone, along with New Year's Eve... My big "3-0" has even passed us by without an update...

I have pictures from that, I promise. I will get them posted as soon as my friend, Lacy, gives them to me. She was my elected photographer for the evening to commemorate the event of my getting older than dirt!! But it was so much fun!

Fill you in soon!
