show us your life...it's friday!!!

This week is show us your life friday and if you have no clue what I'm talking about, hop on over to kelly's blog to see what it is all about. I LOVED the home tours and am thrilled about all the other themes that will be hosted! This week is wedding dress preview! YEAH. Has it really been 8 years since I wore this amazing dress?? Yep, next month we will celebrate 8 years of wedded bliss, (with some not so blissful moments in there too). :)
I had my wedding portraits taken in City Park in New Orleans. Unfortunately it wasn't the best photo shoot. First, my veil blew off and into the muddy water of the second picture when I was on the bridge. Then is started pouring down rain and we had to take all of the pictures inside. I was very disappointed and only have 1 or 2 pictures that I like from that day.

I had to opt for straps and scoop next front dress, (instead of my dream dress that would have been strapless just like hers, because when I get nervous I break out in red, splotchy hives on my chest and shoulders and didn't think that would look too good in my pictures!)


we won't go into the drama that occured when I saw my ORANGE flowers the day of the wedding and burst into tears because that was NOT what I had ordered. It was all I could do to dab my mascara and take this awful picture with the gladiolas that should have gone to a funeral home. But at the end of the day I was still married to the man of my dreams so I got over it.











sorry for the poor quality pictures. well before the digital craze, these pics had to be scanned in, (the horror), and just didn't come out very well!





Here I am with my twin sister (left) and my little sister! Don't they look beautiful?!



Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

You look beautiful. I love the picture of you sitting on the bridge. I am glad you didn't fall into the water like something you would see on Americas Funniest Home videos. Ha!

wow... eight years ago? lots of changes in our life since then, eh? immediately there was graduate school in kansas city before moving back here. jxn came along the way, changing my heart forever. next we met a girl named katrina who wasn't very nice at all. then came logan, seemingly completing our family (btw, we're so done). but, if i had it to do all over again, i wouldn't change one thing. and as beautiful as you were on that day, i think you're even moreso today. thanks for all of your support and patience on this journey we've taken over the years. love you.
