This past weekend Joey and I had two wedding showers!!!
Our first one was in Knoxville, hosted by my best friend from high school & one of my bridesmaids, Abby Snyder. We had around 27 guests there. It was decorated beautifully, had yummy yummy food, lots of gifts and lots of friends and family. Some friends were there that I hadn't seen in four years. It was so great.
Our second shower was in Maryville, hosted by Aunt Betty Sue. She is so crafty and had the table set-up so nice and family members were there from out of state. The thought of them driving in from North Carolina and Georgia meant so much to me. My Great Aunt, that is 87, was able to come too. It was so great to see her.
Joey and I were blessed beyond belief with the friends and family that came. Everyone was so thoughtful with their gifts, I can't believe the items we've received. It was such a wonderful weekend; truly full of family, friends and fun:)
Joey and I are extremely grateful for the continued caring thoughts, advice and prayers as we countdown the days 'til June 20, 2009!!!!!!

As of March 12, 2009 there are 100 Days until our wedding day!!
Joey and I are beyond excited and CAN NOT wait for the wedding to be here! It's so crazy to look back since July 15, 2008 (when Joey proposed) and see what all has happened, how we've grown and how much has changed. We are so lucky to have one another and can't wait 'til we are husband and wife:)
We have been so dead set on a summer wedding and fell in love with it being in June for a couple of reasons. My parents were married on June 21st and Joey's parents were married on June 19th. June 20th falls on a Saturday this year and we just knew it would be so perfect. It's so special to us to share our wedding anniversary with our parents within 3 days.
A year is a long time to plan a wedding, but we're both thankful for our lives together, our family and friends. It's so hard to believe the wedding will be here in no time now. We can't wait!!!

Well, Murfreesboro finally got SNOW!!! We had about 6 inches from late Saturday night to Sunday morning. It was so beautiful! Here's a few pictures of Joey and myself Sunday morning-attempting to leave for church. We made it there safely, no worries, the main roads were clear.
