Save the Date!!

Alright, we have finally chosen a date! Justin's bother Caleb will be coming to visit on June 1st and my little sister will be back from Europe on June 5th so we have decided to go to the courthouse on Monday June 7th to get married. We will then have a small ceremony/reception for our close friends and families on August 21. We were thinking we would do a small backyard wedding and a BBQ afterward. Let the wedding plans begin!

Justin and I headed out to go fishing yesterday with one of my good friends from high school and her husband. We ended up with seven fishers and only one of us caught anything! 5 hours of fishing and 2 fish were the result! We were even rained on the majority of the time we were out. Despite our fishing conditions, we all had a blast.


Justin and I had been talking about marriage for about a month and had done a little ring shopping. Monday afternoon I got a call from Justin while I was at work. He had called to tell me that he was told he was going to be stationed somewhere else and that we had to choose 8 places that we wanted to go. Upset, I tried to help Justin choose a few places. We talked about Arizona, South Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana, and Florida. I left work and was on my way home when I got a phone call from Justin asking where I was. I told him I was on my way home and that I would be home in about 10 minutes. Justin was very adamant that I hurry. I thought it was probably because he wanted to talk about moving. I pulled in and walked up to the door. It was locked. Justin usually has the door unlocked for me when I get home so this was definitely out of the norm. I unlocked the door and opened it to find Justin on one knee holding a small box! He asked me to marry him and through my tears I said yes. I'm looking forward to the rest of my life with this wonderful man. I have never met anyone that I have more fun, silliness, and laughter with.
