May 2nd, Brandon and I will be married for 3 years. I can't believe its been that long. Brandon and I started dating my Sophomore year of high school, which was 9 years ago.
So, about the title of this blog. In Dec. 2007 Brandon proposed and I said....YES!! Since we started dating in May we decided to get married in May. Which only gave me 5 months to plan. We it came down to it I couldn't get it done by myself and we didn't have a lot of money. We just decided the easiest way was to just go to the courthouse and have a wedding later on when we had the time to plan everything and had the money to do it. Well the time has come. We have the time since we are not going to have the wedding until May 2012. That will give us a little over a year to get everything done. We also will have the money since, we can save money back and are not in a rush to buy everything.
Since we are already married, I don't want to have the typical wedding. Brandon and I have already had that, somewhat. I know weddings are celebration of two people getting married and sharing that with friends and family and I want that too but more of the fun and celebrating. Most weddings I have been to you have a ceremony, which I want the typical ceremony. I want my dad to walk me down the aisle and saying our vows. Since we said the repeat vows the 1st time I want us to write our own vows this time(just have to get the hubby on board). When it comes to the reception, you eat, dance, and cut the cake. We will also have that but a little extra.
With that said, the theme of our wedding is:Carnival Theme
I know it sounds weird but we want to have fun and how can you not have fun with a theme like that. I seen some pictures when I was searching and I fell in love but if you knew Brandon you would know that he is hard to please and isn't on board with a lot of my ideas. When I told him the idea I wish I had a camera to take his picture. He was definitely against it but when I showed him the pictures he was on board.
Below are some of the pictures that I showed him and that I am getting my inspiration from. You will definitely be posted on all the projects and the planning we will be doing in the year. Also, if you run across pictures, items, or anything else that you think can help us or that we need let us know so we can check it out.

My onion plants that I started from seeds. Hopefully it will warm up soon so I can get my raised boxes fix up so my plants can go out.
Woke up and went over to get Shila up and this is how she was sleeping. Crazy lady!!!
What's makes a cold day better?? Turkey chili taco soup! Recipe coming soon.
Before we moved to Kentucky(hints the blue shirt), we lived in Tennessee(hints the Orange Shirt). My dad was born and raised there and we lived there for 12 years after my brother was born. My dad hates Kentucky(the teams not state) and doesn't like anything Kentucky in the house. So whenever Tennessee and Kentucky play we give my dad a hard time. The shirt I have on I found at the Goodwill and I had to buy it. I gave it to my dad for Christmas last year and didn't like it. I figure I would wear it instead.

For the past few weeks our house has been a little(a lot) crazy. In the past 3 weeks we have been to 4 funerals. My sister-in-law's finace's grandfather, my husbands aunt and uncle, and my parents next door neighbor. One was of natural causes, 2 had cancer, and the other was pneumonia. Many tears later things are finely starting to settle back done. Well not really!! Spring is a skips away and we have a big list of this to do. This weekend we have three project's going on, were painting the living room, putting in the back-splash in the kitchen and making some raised beds for my fruit/veggie garden. That is only for this weekend. We have two pages and counting of things that we what to get done this spring and summer. Right now I am putting together a spring cleaning challenge. Hopefully, I should have that started by Monday and we can get our homes cleaned up just in time to enjoy the beautiful weather coming outdoors. So if your not following don't forget too, I don't want you to miss out.
