Our wedding!

Well, I think it's time I shared about how our wedding went.  

Okay, so as you know we had gotten engaged back in July 2007, well soon after my mom started helping me plan the wedding.  I can't remember exactly what made us choose to do April, but I know we were trying to avoid the crazy hot Texas summer weather, LOL!  Well we were going to the 4th since our anniversary of being together is always the 4th but it wasn't a Saturday so we chose the next closest date which was the 5th so close enough. :)  So my plans mostly were made with my mom as you know guys don't really get too involved with the planning. ;)  We chose to do our color as royal blue which turned out beautifully.


I chose somewhat of a Cinderella theme, we made up little slippers as table favors, I wore shoes that were called Cinderella which kind of resembled a glass slipper and of course had to go with this wonderful cake topper which I actually found from a woman on Ebay!
Everything turned out so beautiful, the decorations, the favors, the cake, the tux, and of course the dress!  So on April 5, 2008, we had one of the happiest days of our life!

Carlie's 1st Dentist Visit!

I finally took Carlie today to her first dental check up!  She did so wonderful, I can't believe it, she wasn't scared at all!  She actually enjoyed it cuz they show a movie for them while they're examining her teeth, she didn't fuss or anything, she was so good!  I think she'll love it now when it's time for her next check up, cuz she gets to watch a movie, and get special stuff when she's done! :)  So proud of her today

We had such a wonderful time last Sunday at the beach!  We left bright and early, its been a long, good while since we've been down, too long!  First we just drove for a little bit down the seawall when we got there, then we stopped at Wings and bought a few souvenirs.  Then we took Carlie down to the beach, let her play for a good while.  She had a ball just playin' in the sand.

Then after a while, we got ourselves cleaned up(well as much as you can clean the sand off, lol), and then we went and had a little snack at The Spot.  After we left there, we went and took Carlie to the Rainforest Pyramid at Moody Gardens for the 1st time.  She loved it, she was completely fascinated with the butterflies!

When we left there, it was time to eat dinner.  We went to the Rainforest Cafe, love it there and Carlie loved it, too.  It was her 1st time to be there also, then after that we took her on the Rainforest River Ride!  She loved that, too!

Then we took her to Murdoch's and got her her 1st hermit crab who she named Squirt, we had a wonderful time!

Mother's Day

Well, I had a wonderful mother's day.  Cory took me down to Galveston last weekend, then yesterday, we went for the 1st time to finally do some professional pictures!  And for the very 1st time we experienced going to a drive-in movie!!  It was so neat to experience that, especially together as a family!  We went to see Dark Shadows, it was pretty good!  Well, from what we caught, cuz in some of it we were having to get on to Carlie and my niece, Bree, they love each other to death, but they always fight like sisters, lol!  And today is was so sweet, Carlie told me Happy Mother's Day on her own, she picked out my card and helped pick out my flowers, too.  But then later on she was walking in the house and looked at Cory and said "Happy Mother's Day, Daddy." LOLOLOL, he told her "I'm not a mother, Carlie."  It was so funny!

Unexpected Love

This is a poem I wrote a long time ago at the first of our relationship, just thought I'd share it with you!

Throughout our lives we never think love will come our way
Until that special someone pops into your life one day
So unexpectedly, here you came into mine
Came so suddenly, just in the nick of time
You were truly a love at first sight
And I shall never forget that wonderful night
I never expected to receive such a gift
But you and God both worked together to change it
You came along and swept me off my feet
Your love makes my heart skip a beat
I'm the happiest I've ever been in my entire life
I have you to thank for that, that's no lie
I just want you to know that you are my world
And I will love you forever, you have my word

How he proposed...

Okay, so our anniversary of being together as I said in my other post is July 4th. Well, the weekend of back in 2007, we went with some friends to Lake Conroe. When we were hanging out on the docks, I gave him our 1 yr. anniversary gift. I had a lighter engraved for him which said "Love of My Life", since we had made that our song. Later that night after our friends had gone to sleep, we stayed up on the balcony of the hotel we were staying at and talked for hours about how we felt and our relationship. He originally told me that he hadn't wanted to do this without having the ring first but he was ready to ask, so he leaned down in front of me and asked me "Will you marry me?" Of course I said yes, and then we just hugged for the longest time! Then of course he made me wait until Christmas Eve to give me my ring!

How it all began...

Well, I first met Cory back in 2006. It happened one night when my best friend, Cristina was in town, we went out to watch some karaoke. I invited a friend I used to work with to join us and he happened to be working with Cory at the time so he asked Cory to come up as well. And here's something funny, Cristina and I were coming out of the bathroom, Cory and her started both smiling and sayin' "what are you doing here?" Yep, you guessed it, they knew each other, turned out they dated way back when and remained friends. So they were catching up and all, I was sitting there being shy (that's just me lol), and thinking how cute I thought he was. He started to make conversation with me, we got to talking and he gave me his number. From then on, we talked many times for hours on end getting to know each other, and before I knew it we had our first date and became a couple. And now this July 4th, we will be together for 6 yrs.
