My New Niece

I would like everyone to meet Anya Kate Hathaway. Kate was named after me. I was so honored. This is my favorite picture of her. She looks like a little butter ball. There's the tuckered out Dad. It's weird that my twin is a Dad.
Here is Anya's beautiful mom! This is the quilt that I sewed for Anya. This one has buttons AND Pinwheels. I'm getting gutsier!

The biggest diaper cake you have ever seen! Leave it up to my twin brother to make a diaper cake with close to 1,000 diapers! 937 to be exact!

I loved the paper lanterns hanging from the chandelier and all the bright colors.

The center pieces came together so well. We got the boxes for free from a florist. You can't see it real well, but in the middle of the box is a black pregnant wire form body with a bright pink ribbon around it's belly.

Funny Moments

My Hero! I snapped a picture of Ryan while he was trying to kill a fly. I died laughing!

Our toilet was leaking in the morning and Ryan came home from work that very day and put in a new toilet. One of the benefits of having your husband work for a toilet distributor. I was so proud of him.

I love this picture. It looks like Ryan is taking a picture for an Aquarium pass at the Chattanooga Aquarium. Ha! That is a real fish behind him!

An Unsuccessful Tulip Transplant. It's not a good idea to dig up a tulip and move it while it is full bloom. Who knew?

After much encouragement from his wife, Ryan finally got in the bathtub during a tornado warning. Listen, when you are from Oklahoma, you hear the tornado sirens and you get your booty to shelter.
My HERO! I snapped this picture of Ryan while he was very focused. He's trying to kill a fly.

Our Biggest Fight

Our biggest fights have been at the grocery store. Our first one was on our honeymoon over jelly. He likes regular Welch's grape jelly but I like Polaner jelly. Why not eat something that taste better with way less sugar. :) We literally stood in front of the jellies for 30 minutes. You will be glad to know we buy separate jelly.

Showers and more Showers!

This is my favorite picture of all my bridesmaids...they all look naked!

I love delicate tea cups. I picked a antique tea cup at a local antique shop in Mustang, Oklahoma (where I'm from) for each of my bridesmaid. I wanted them to have something unique and special.

The Bridal Brunch of my dreams! As soon as I find the rest of the pictures I will post more! It was so beautiful!

My best friend and Sister-N-Law did such a wonderful job. Notice the pink of my favs.

Inside these colorful packages are Oreo Balls...MMM...also known as black balls. What? They are!

Everyone who knows me knows I have a little "cowgirl" in me.

I love the 80's! Isn't this picture hysterical! It looks like an actual photo from 1980! It was such a fun shower!

The Breakfast Club: The New Class

The Dress of My Dreams!

I fell in love with this dress immediately! Faccio Bridal gave me 50% off for buying it off the rack. They treated me like a princess. Besides my groom, this was my favorite part of our wedding. I actually put it back on for our 1 year Anniversary! You should have seen Ryan's face when he came home from work with me plopped on the couch in my dress! Ha!

Me and Prince Charming

Our very first Christmas
I know I'm partial, but I have the most amazing husband in the world...for me. :)

The most beautiful bouquet of Gerber Daisies.

On the balcony in Hawaii.

On the beach!

Watching the sunrise in Maui on top of a volcano.

I would relive this day over and over!
