*Together forever could never be long enough*

In keeping with the wedding theme from last night, I wanted to tell of you about two beautiful young ladies that are soon be someone's Mrs.! First is Ms. Hayleigh Summers. I met Hayleigh through her now fiancé Ryan, when we worked together at Cav Rx. She is such a sweet lady, Ryan is a very lucky man. Here is the couple soon after becoming engaged.

Ryan and Hayleigh are such a great couple, very caring and loving of each other. When you say Hayleigh's name in Ryan's presence, his whole face lights up! You can just tell that these two were made for each other. I can not wait to witness their exchanging of vows, I am pretty sure there will not be a dry eye in the house. Oh and not to keep you in suspense about the ring check it out!

Ryan (aka: "bub") did a great job, didn't he? So now that brings me to my second soon to be Mrs. Her name is Julie of BrownEyedBelle. Julie and I have never personally met, but I feel like I have known her forever! I have been an avid reader of her blog since 2009, and I just love her. Julie is a classy, southern belle and she has met an equally classy gentleman in Brad. Here is the great looking couple!

Are they not the one of the cutest couples you have ever seen?! From the moment that Julie posted that she was in a relationship with a great man, I just got a feeling that something really good was going to happen to her. I was absolutely over the moon when she posted this photo on Facebook back in November.

And to quote Julie on her response, "He asked. I said YES!!!!" I have to admit I did squeal in delight when I saw that photo. How could you not be happy for someone who is such a sweet and amazing person as Julie? Oh and to make it better, Julie later that night posted this photo!

Yes, that is a Tiffany & Co. blue box! (To die for, right?!) Brad did a a really good job, if I must say so myself! To ask the ladies whom she wanted to be in her wedding party, she sent out these adorable cards asking them "Will you be my bridesmaid?" I love this idea, I had never thought of it before!

Super cute! I can not wait to see photos of the wedding, I know with Julie's fashion, and sense of style that it is sure to be a beautiful occasion! Ladies, I hope that one day I am as lucky as you two are,  and find my missing puzzle piece for life. I pray that God blesses your marriages and may they be full of love and babies! (wink!)

Diamonds are a girl's best friend!

                      Spring 2012
                    Charleston, SC 

I am so excited to let everyone know my oldest sister Talitha became engaged on December 11, 2011! The very lucky man (if I do say so myself)  is Michael Sarhan. They are really great together, and I can not wait for Michael to be apart of this family! I am also really excited to help Talitha looking for wedding dresses. I really wish Talena was able to be there, but she will be there in our minds and hearts. As you read above, the wedding is going to be held in Charleston, SC (YAY!!!!) and I am needing a date (ECK!) Do you have a single son, brother, or friend? (lol) Me saying that makes me think of that movie "The Wedding Date," (which I love by the way.) Charleston is a special place for them, they have had two vacations there already and they love the southern charm and history.  He also did a great job on the ring, take a look!

Once again to Michael and Talitha, congratulations! May God bless both of you and this union! Oh I can't forget their dog daughter Mara, I just love her!!!

My new addiction......

This amazing app/website has become one of my favorite past time in the past couple of months. I was introduced to it by a lady I work with, and after 4 weeks of waiting to get a pin I was addicted. Any down time at work, riding in a car, or even waiting in line at the drive-thru  you will catch me pinning away! If you have never heard of, you need to go there NOW and request a pin, or ask me and I can send you an invite. The website not only has photos of homes, gardens, weddings, babies, clothes, but they also have recipes and DIY crafts. My friend M tried a couple of recipes, when we had a girls night a couple of weeks ago, and they were to die for! Here are a couple of things I am wanting to try.

 A DYI bowl made of buttons! If goes step by step on  how to make this amazing piece of art. Then if you know me, you know that my favorite soda is Dr. Pepper. So of course when I saw these I knew I would  have to make the ASAP!

Dr. Pepper cupcakes! Are they not amazing looking! I love how they used the cans as the cupcake holders, a neat idea I had never thought of. The recipe is also included on this pin.

So I guess your wandering what "Pinterest" and "pins" are so here you go! (via

You can follow individual boards if you're only interested in seeing a user's pins to specific boards.

So there you  have it my friends! Just a few tidbits of Pintrest and how to get started, believe me you will not regret it!

Did God just tease me?

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, I know I did! Good food, great friends, and family. And who could forget those presents? Santa was very nice to me this year! He brought me a diamond necklace, and my present to myself has not came in yet. I bought a Hermes Birkin 40cm bag!! I am very excited for it to come in! (in my VERY GIDDY voice!)

I went to a friends home last night for dinner with her family, and a couple of us single women started talking about this man who I met this past week and could not stop smiling about.  We will call him "HIM."  HIM is an amazing man, I have never met anyone like him before, and we took to each other very fast and easy.  He came to my Christmas dinner, and I seriously forgot there was anyone else in the room, except he and I. Have you ever looked into someones eyes and felt at ease/excited at the same time? This is how he made me feel...I hope that God wasn't teasing me with HIM, I would love to see/talk/be around him again. Oh and his voice, Good Lord! Some people say you just know when you meet the "one." Well I think I know what that feels like, but I couldn't keep him....isn't that ironic? Not for
