Thursday morning my mom, Michelle (Bridesmaid), Gracie, and I went to pick out flowers for the wedding. It was so much fun! I knew exactly what I wanted and even had pictures to show. Our wedding consultant was so excited and thankful for making her job so easy! We had so much fun. As for the flowers, here is a hint: LOTS of Hydrangeas and of course white and green :)
Aaron's office Christmas party on Thursday night went really well. It was a little awkward at first, as I'm sure any office party is, but everyone there was really nice! Aaron and I didn't participate in the Dirty Santa game, but quickly wished we had when tickets to the Arkansas-Oklahoma basketball game went up for grabs.
Our lunch date with our photographers on Friday was so much fun! They are both super nice and were so easy to talk to. They brought some of their custom designed albums for us to look at. Oh my goodness! They were gorgeous! I immediately fell in love! We, also, talked a little bit about possible times for Engagement pictures (January or February) and what the actually wedding day would be like. It all sounds so wonderful!
Friday night we went to eat at Catfish Hole and to see the new movie 'Yes Man' with two of Aaron's groomsmen. Saturday consisted of LOTS of last minute shopping and being out with the Christmas mob. Saturday night we went and watched the Razorback basketball game, which we won!
I came home on Sunday after much more shopping. We both hate to leave eachother, but at least he will be home either Tuesday or Wednesday for Christmas! We are so excited to get to spend a decent amount of time in Benton together with both of our families. A little side note: On Sunday, our Engagement announcement was in the Benton Courier! Here's a little look at it:
Its hard to read the text in the picture, so here is what it says:
"James and Janet Langley of Benton announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Amanda Michelle Langley, to Aaron Ray Hilborn. The bride-elect is the granddaughter of Harvey and Lenora Langley and Joyce Fullington and the late Nyle Fullington, all of Benton. She is a 2003 graduate of Benton High School and a 2007 graduate of Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. The prospective bridegroom is the son of Alan and Karen Hilborn of Benton. He is the grandson of Stanley and Dorothy Hilborn of Malvern and Jack and Mattie Ramsey of Benton. He is a 2002 graduate of Benton High School and a 2006 graduate of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in biological engineering. The wedding is scheduled for 7 p.m. July 24 at First Baptist Church in Benton."
WE ARE SO EXCITED!
