My Big Sis is...


It was our very own little Christmas miracle. Ever since Heather was diagnosed with PCOS almost eight years ago, her doctors have told her that she probably wouldn't be able to conceive. But after only four months of trying, she's pregnant! This morning at her ultrasound, she got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. She said it was absolutely surreal.

By the way, the Prego jar was how she broke the news to us. She and Michael got on video chat and Heather told me she wanted to show me one of my Christmas presents, since it wouldn't get to California in time. All of a sudden, there was a jar of pasta sauce with a big shiny bow on top! I was a little confused at first but as soon as it sunk in I started screaming in excitement.

I can't wait to meet my new niece or nephew!


Lovely Veil.

If you have the chance to wear an heirloom veil anything like this one, DO IT.

"Cute" is an understatement.

The other night when Curt got home from work, he swung the front door open and victoriously proclaimed, "I've still got it!"

This is what he had found on his car earlier that day:

Hey, it takes guts to leave your number on a guy's car. So I gotta give Kristy mad props!

When Curt sent her a text letting her know he was married, she responded:

"Aww, bummer. Well your wife's a lucky lady."

well, you got that right :)

P.S. see how I made the last four digits disappear? photoshop skillz. I haz dem....JK.


Ummm... anyone want my dress?

All that tulle is takin' up too much room... so if you're on the hunt for some tea-length prettiness, or know a bride who is, let me know! My dress made me so happy (look how it twirls!!!!) and I'd love to share that beautiful, giddy feeling with someone else.

It's up on Once Wed and you can see the listing right here. Of course, feel free to email me directly if you have questions!

Well.... Shucks, Y'all!
