A Walk Down Memory Lane ...

1. Where/How did you meet? Sean and I met at Northland Baptist Bible College. I was the leader of an extension that went to Crystal Manor Nursing Home and it was Extension Rush day. I needed another guy to preach as I only had one guy on the team. Well things were winding down and I still didn't have a guy so I started shouting that I needed a man and after a few minutes of this up walks Sean, looking at me like I was crazy. Little did he know that he was right. ;)

2. How long have you known each other? 7 years (this week actually).

3. How long after you met did you start dating? Well our first date was on Dec. 7th so 3 months after we met. But we didn't start "officially" dating until March 17th so that would be around 7 months after we met. And if you are wondering what I mean by "officially" then you didn't go to Northland.

4. How long did you date before you were engaged? 2 months

5. How long was your engagement? 13 months

6. How long have you been married? The best 5 years, 1 month and 2 weeks of my life

7. What is your anniversary? July 12th

8. How many people came to your wedding reception? I don't know maybe 100.

9. What kind of cake did you serve? Chocolate was for Sean's cake then the big cake was french vanilla and confetti cake

10. Where was your wedding? First Baptist Church of Laurel, MT

11. What did you serve for your meal? Sandwiches, chips, and veggie trays. We weren't going to have anything but cake but then my oldest brother decided to buy the food for us.

12. How many people were in your wedding party? 3 bridesmaids, 2 groomsmen, 1 flower girl, 2 ring bearers and 3 ushers. There were suppose to be 3 groomsmen but two of them backed out the week before the wedding and so we were only going to have 1 but then the night before Sheldon showed up so we found him a suit and he got to walk two girls down the aisle. :)

13. Are you still friends with them all? Yes but we haven't talked to Sheldon since the wedding.

14. Did your spouse cry during the ceremony? No but we did laugh quite a bit.

15. Most special moment of your wedding day? Other than marrying the most amazing man in the world. When my brother Sam walked into the church. (He wasn't going to come because he was just getting back from deployment and he didn't think that he would be back in time. But he drove all night long to get there in time) When my brother Lee walked me down the aisle. And when Rick came to see me just before it was time to start and told me it wasn't too late. :)

16. Any funny moments? Tons! The biggest one though is when Sean said I do twice and Rick told him to slow down that the vows weren't over yet. And after lighting the unity candle I told Sean knock knock jokes.

17. Any big disasters? Let's see: two groomsmen backing out 1 week before the wedding, Sean's car breaking down so he almost didn't make it to the wedding, my brother having major back surgery a few weeks before the wedding and didn't think that he was going to be able to walk me down the aisle. I think those were the biggest ones.

18. Where did you go on your honeymoon? Bozeman, MT and Yellowstone National Park

19. How long were you gone? a week

20.If you could get married again is there anything that you would change? The two things we would have changed would have been the location of the wedding. We didn't get to have all of the things that we wanted because of the location. And I would not have had the lady that did the dresses for the bridesmaids do them. It was her way and no one else, so needless to say they didn't work out so well. My poor girls who had to wear them.

21. Greatest strength as a couple? Making each other laugh when life gets tough.

22. Greatest challenge as a couple? Having the same schedule so that we can see each other.

23. What did you dance your first dance to? We didn't get to have a first dance at the reception but our song is "Good Morning Beautiful" by Steve Holy and we have danced to that many times.

24. Describe your wedding dress: it has beading along the hem and the bodice in kind of a swirling pattern. It has a small train with row of buttons all the way down the back. It's sleeveless with I guess a round neckline and a fitted waist. I tried it on the other day just for kicks and giggles and it actually fit again!

25. What kind of flowers did you have at your wedding? Daisies, blue delphiniums, and yellow roses.

26. Are your wedding bands engraved? no

27. How old were you when you got married? I was 22 and Sean was 24

This Blogging Thing

Well, it finally happened. I decided to give this whole blog thing a try. I'll probably only write a new blog once a year if I'm lucky, but who knows maybe I'll surprise myself.
I never thought I'd be "one of those people", I never understood the attraction to writing my thoughts or ideas or simply what was going on in my life and have it out there for all who care to read. I blame Facebook for my decline into the trends of pop culture. Or better yet I blame the person who invited me to be their friend on Facebook. Unfortunately for me, I don't remember who that is. But if I could remember I'd throw an Elf at them or just poke them old school.
Well, enough rambling for now. If you are reading this and you are bored out of your minds well then hahaha I say because you started it.
