{Wedding Day}

We started Erica's special day by me picking her up and meeting the rest of the girls at Starbucks!  Then we headed to the salon to get our hair done.  We had a great time helping one another with hair and make up!  Erica was so calm, I just couldn't believe it! 

After the salon, we headed to the Church to get dressed and take pictures.  First us girls got dressed and then we helped Erica get ready!  She looked like a princess although bless her heart, when we put her into her dress just got really dizzy when we zipped her up so we all fanned her, brought her water, and she even cautiously stuck her head out the window to get fresh air, fortunately, we kept our eyes peeled for the groom!

The ceremony was so beautiful!  The altar couldn't have been more perfect.  It was such a fun and relaxed ceremony!  We even danced down the aisle during the procession :)

 Ella Jae was the sweetest flower girl I've ever seen!  She walked down the aisle holding my hand.  She did so great!  She acutally stopped when we got to rows with people but only for a second and then I handed her off to Daddy, Memmy, and Poppy where they bribed her with lots of candy canes :)

The reception was so much fun!  We had a blast!  I danced and danced and finally when I sat down, I couldn't get up ha!  I guess that is what cuttin' a rug will do to ya when you are 26 weeks preggo ha!

The flowers, the cake, the decor, and ofcourse the bride and groom were so beautiful!  I couldn't have imagined Erica's special day being any more perfect!!

So happy and blessed Ella Jae and I got to be a part of your special day, Erica!  Thank you for choosing us!  We wish you and Josh a lifetime of happiness!  Love you, Mr. & Mrs. Neal!

Erica and Josh's Wedding Weekend

{Rehearsal Dinner}

The Rehearsal was at the Church and was followed by the Rehearsal Dinner at the Red Pepper Cafe.
The Red Pepper is a newer eatering and is so neat!  They have an outside patio where musicians play each night and it is so nice!  The Rehearsal Dinner was held in an events room inside and was so wonderful!  We all had a great time mingling together and celebrating the bride and groom to be, and not to mention the food was awesome!

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I am so excited to be back to blogging and didn't want to miss the chance at linking up for

Here's what I'm loving this week...

I'm loving that we are going on our annual hayride tomorrow at Christmas on Breezy Hill with the family!  And we are also going to the Festival of Lights on Saturday!

I'm loving Tastefull Simple Potato Cheddar Soup!  We had it last night for dinner with ham and cheese paninis!  All you do is add water and it is seriously the best EVER!!

I'm loving that we picked out our FIRST real Christmas tree this year!  Adam and I have always put up a tree we got the first year we were married and thought it would be fun to pick out a tree each year with the girls and so that is what we did :)

I'm loving that Adam's cousin, Erica, is getting married on Dec. 17 and her Bridal Luncheon is on Sunday!  Yah for wedding festivities!!

I'm loving the Yankee Candle Sparkling Pine candle especially since we got a real tree this year!  The tree smells great and this little candle just adds to the sweetness!  LOVE IT!

I'm loving that I had my 24 wk appt today and am so happy to report that everything is wonderful!  Miss Maeline had a very strong heartbeat, but I do have to have my sugar test next!

I'm loving my sweet family oh so much and am more thankful for them each and everyday, especially at the Holidays!
