Through it all, We Remain the Same



This weekend Josh, Rock & I loaded up to head to the DFW for yet another wedding! The union of Wade Havins and Amelia Wells! This is the last of the weddings for us in 2011, & the first of my High School friends wedding! :)Amy & Wade's wedding was simply beautiful! Congrats to the two of them as they start their new life together! So exciting!! :)

I had some pretty awesome Friends in High School! We were extremely tight, and once we graduated we all went our different ways to take on life! Through it all we have remained the same & r still the best of friends today, & I LOVE THAT! I was really looking forward to this weekend because ALL of US haven't got to hang out in quite awhile! So I knew this was going to be a great weekend! We all met up for lunch Saturday at Chuy's! When this group gets together...it is for sure going to be a good night! & once again it was! :) It is truly a blessing to have friends that can get together and never miss a beat, when it has sometimes been a year since we all saw eachother!! (Especially since the parents of a few have moved from Vernon and are never down for the holidays anymore.)I can't wait for the end of August when all of the girls will get together for a girl trip!

The weekend was all around a successful fun weekend! Josh and I had a blast and enjoyed seeing everyone! :)

From a Noah to a Nolen



Well it is no secret that my sister got married this past weekend! What an absolute blast! Of course we were up late Wednesday night getting sister all packed for the honeymoon because come Thursday, there would be no time and she would not be back home until 8 days after the wedding! My mom and I also revamped her ribbon bouquet for the rehearsal! Good thing for Great moms! She helped me make it beautiful, or as beautiful as a ribbon bouquet can be. She definitely make it beautiful compared to what I had done.

A relaxing morning at the nail salon was what we all needed before the craziness of wedding began!! :) We stayed in downtown Dallas at the Adolphus hotel! That is just fun to say! :) It was really nice!

The rehearsal dinner was so personable and Brandi and TJ made everyone feel so special and thanked every single person for everything. I really enjoyed that.

The wedding went off without a hitch! The whole day- I will not go into detail- was full of happiness, tears, smiles, laughter, hair do's and make up for the girls!

The ceremony was such a personable ceremony. It was so intimate and everyone there could definitely feel the love for these two. They expressed their own vows to eachother which were simply amazing! The Nolen's are great writers I must say! Then there was cocktail hour where everyone got to mingle and look at various photos of Brandi and Tj from kids to now!

Then there was the amazing, flawless reception! It was simply Amazing! My sisters wedding planner, Wendy owner of Birds-of-a-feather, nailed it! It was very much Brandi and TJ and I heard so many compliments of how personable and beautiful everything was. I hope it lived up to every one of Brandi's expectations because as a sister- I have never been more proud! She looked gorgeous and was glowing all night long and I loved every minute of seeing her that happy with her soul mate!!

Now they begin their lives together forever! What a blessing! She is of course enjoying the beach right now- must be nice- while all of us other folk have to work! hehe :)

So to say the least it was a Beautiful wedding that my family and I will remember for a lifetime! I am so happy to have my sister in my life and now even a brother!!

P.S. It took me a few days to recover after the Noah/Nolen wedding! Everyone there definitely knew how to have a good time! and we all paid for it a little the next day!! :)
