Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties!

Last weekend, Aaron and I both spent sometime with our guys and girls. We both had such a blast! Aaron and his guys went to Memphis to eat at Rendezvous. Afterward, they went to Tunica to play some blackjack and poker. All of those guys LOVE playing cards, especially Aaron, so it was a perfect weekend for them! And because guys are guys....I have no pictures of the bachelor weekend! No surprise there!

My girls and I stayed around the downtown Little Rock area and had a BLAST! We layed around the pool of our hotel on Saturday, then got all dolled up and headed to the River Market area. The bridesmaids had some "special" attire for me to wear around town as you will see in the pictures! We had a great time out and about, visiting with friends! Some of my sweet friends from work came out to celebrate with us and we had such a great time! When we got back to the hotel, we played a wedding game, opened gifts, and ate some delicious cake! Here are just a couple of the pictures from the weekend!P.S. That alcoholic beverage sitting on the table infront of us was NOT any of ours. The guy taking our picture had to sit it down to take the picture! Just wanted to make that clear!
This will more than likely be my last post until after the honeymoon, so wish us luck! It has been great sharing all of the wedding details and excitement with you! I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have. When I get back I'll have lots of pictures from our super fun trip to Mexico, plus pictures that will be taken over the next two days! After that, we'll just see wait to see what happends! God bless!

Let the Move-In Commence!

Tonight, Aaron and I are driving up to Fayetteville to begin moving into this...
Our First House!

We are soooo excited! All of our shower gifts and lots of my boxes are already at his house in one of the spare bedrooms. Tonight we plan to take as much of that stuff over to the new house as possible. Tomorrow morning, both of our moms and dads are coming up to bring up the final boxes, furniture, and to help us move all of the furniture of Aaron's in his current house over to the new one. Doesn't that sound like fun? I know that most people hate to move, but when you are moving into your first house with your future spouse, its pretty exciting!

We, also, get a little treat! Ashley and Gracie will be riding up with my mom to help out! They are so excited about coming to Fayetteville and seeing the place where I will be living! Wish us luck!

Two More Weeks & Marriage License!


Yesterday, Aaron and I went to the Washington County Court House to......GET OUR MARRIAGE LICENSE!
Wow! Seriously, we were both so goofy! We were sooooo excited! And, I know this sounds lame, but I seriously got teary eyed as we left the county clerks office! Everyone is soooo nice when you get your marriage license. I was just fine and holding up well, until the lady said, "Okay, you're all done. Congratulations!" It was like instant tears. It all of a sudden hit me, what we had just done! As we walked out, the two security guards yelled congratulations to us, too! Fantastic day! There is no telling what I will be like on the actual wedding day. I'm sure it would be easier for me to just NOT wear make-up!

Happy Weekend!
