Engagement Party

This past weekend was our engagement party. We had an amazing time with our friends and family. Thanks to all of the hosts for giving us the party.

Sadly this is the only picture of Ben and I together all evening. We were both too busy being social butterflies. The girl in the picture is his cousin Julie. Ben and Julie grew up together and are more like brother and sister.

My mother, sister Carolyn and myself.
Ben and his sister Lauren!
My parents. My dad is home from Iraq. I am so happy that he was there to celebrate with us.

Thanks for everything. I love you both SOOOOO MUCH.

And to continue with my wedding party faces. I present Matt P.

Matt is a new groom. He married a wonderful girl Amy in August. You see, Matt and Amy started dating 2 years after Ben and I and married before us. I must admit I did tell Ben that I better be engaged before Matt and Amy. They discussed and I was engaged 2 weeks prior to Matt.
Matt is one of Ben's funniest friends, a published author, bad with directions, and not just Ben's friend but mine too.
Thanks Matt for being in our wedding!

Least I forget my future sister-in-law. Lauren is Ben's younger and only sibling.
Miss Lauren is a junior at the "other" school majoring in fashion retail. She is a former dancer, sorority girl, fashionista, devoted girlfriend and a beautiful sister. I am excited to have another sister in my life.


It's Ben # 2 as I like to refer to him. Ben is not only one of Ben's best friends, but mine too. Why wouldn't I be his best friend I do all of his shopping. Ben is an engineer, a smart one at that, a dog lover, a smart ass, a loyal friend, dependable and SINGLE. I always joked with Ben and told him that he would have to stand up at the alter in a tux shirt and skirt so he could represent both a bridesmaid and groomsman. Thanks Ben for being a great friend!

To continue with Ben's Groomsmen, today I present John David (J.D.)
J.D. and Ben have just recently become great friends. You see, J.D. went to that "private school" and Ben went to that "public school". They knew each other in high school and hung out on occasions, but it was not until J.D. moved back to Huntsville after finishing Dental School that they became very close friends, and yes J.D. is a Doctor. Ben and J.D. have alot in common. For example both are very passionate about their football teams, love playing golf, both have a laid back personality, and both love their wife and fiance unconditionally.
I am excited to have J.D. and his wonderful wife in our lives.
