Wall Wedding!

This weekend was our 5th and final wedding of the year! It was our dear friend Rob Wall. Luke and I have both been friends with Rob for years and years and Luke actually roomed with him in college. We met Sarah after college and have loved getting to know them through their journey towards marriage. Here's the happy couple!

And here's another!

It was a really beautiful wedding in a cute little Catholic Church. Check out the wedding party on the balcony of the church complete with a portrait of Jesus! (if that's what he really looked like).

This is Sarah, the bride. Her dress was BEAUTIFUL!!! It had beautiful beading and an elegant train. And it was poofy,and I like them poofy. She looked beautiful!!

Luke was honored to be the best man for Rob and gave a really great speech at the reception. It really portrayed the relationship that they had together through college. Rob's Justice League character was Batman, and to add to the comedy, Luke asked Sarah if she'd rather be Robin or Alfred as a sidekick. She chose Alfred!! It was funny.

I even got to see my bestest friend in the whole world, Pam. Her and her boyfriend Ryan were there. I love getting to hang out with Pam whenever I can. I miss her when she's not around. Of course, Luke has to be silly in the background!!

The reception had an Asian theme complete with chopsticks, bamboo, Samurai swords and chinese food. Even the servers wore kimono's (I think that's how you spell it). It was all beautiful and we had a great time being with Pam and Ryan.

Congratulations Rob and Sarah!!!

Seriously Twisted Fun!!!

(First of all, I've been behind, so keep scrolling down for back-posting to see what we've been up to)

That was the theme to the NC State Fair. This is a sweet tradition for Luke and I and we make it a date night every year. Of course, we go to eat. This year we split, a gyro, a funnel cake, a roasted corn, a polish sausage, deep-fried milky way, ice cream, corn dog, bloomin' onion, fries, and chocolate dipped frozen cheesecake on a stick. Wow, that's alot when I type it all out. Don't worry, that wasn't all in one night, we went two time and the second time, all that food was split four ways. Luke and I love going and people watching and looking at all the animals and exhibits.

Luke at the fair, at night. It was Tuesday and it wasn't so crowded that night.

This is the midway at night as well. This is the brightest, loudest and funnest part of the fair. This is where all the rides and games are. People yell at you from all directions to come play their games, but we were able to overcome all that drama.

Rockie being silly at the PBS tent. I think his name is Arthur, but I'm not sure. Those are Luke's glasses I'm wearing and boy is he blind. I got a headache from wearing them for just 1 min.

Focus in on Luke's mouth. Didn't he do it just right. I thought he looked just like Elmo and Cookie. Our favorite part is being able to be silly like this together.

This was us in the cow arena. These two cows were huge. I think they had just eaten and were just laying there. You could see their stomachs moving like they were digesting there food. There were definetly bigger cows. The saddest part is when you're walking out of the arena, there's a big poster with pictures of slabs of meat that are good and what part of the cow they come from, then you turn around and see the cow. So sad, but, mmmm, steak is so good!

A friend of mine, who also cuts my hair, had some free tickets that she gave us so we were able to go twice. We went on a double date with Daniel , luke's brother, and his "promised one" Alinna. We had a really great time. It was amazing all the things that Luke and I didn't get to see when we were there before. We took alot of fun pictures but they're all on Daniel's camera. Hopefully I'll get them soon because some of them are really great. If you didn't get to go to the fair this year, save up your money and go next year!!!

Friends for us and friends for MissyGirl!

We had our great friends Scott and Kelly Barclay come and visit us two weekends ago (yeah I'm way behind on the blog).

We had a great time shopping and just hanging out with them. Luke and Scott stayed home and played a new game on the Xbox. So Kelly and I, trying to escape utter boredom, went and did some shopping at Brier Creek. We had a great time just hanging out. Kelly is a great friend and God really uses her in my life, I don't think she knows how much. We were, however, good little wives and left all the stores empty handed; much to the delight of our husbands.

Missy also had a friend come visit. Her name is Josie and she's a West Highland Scottish Terrier (I think that's all of it). Anyway, she's really great and really fun. She belongs to Mike and Nancy Corson, friends of ours who we love to watch college basketball with.
This is Mike and Nancy with Missy and Josie.

They take care of Missy whenever we have to go out of town. It's funny to watch them because they are total opposites. Missy pretty much just lays in her bed all day long but Josie doesn't stop walking around the apartment.
This is Missy and Josie from our 3rd story window watching on as we leave the house. They were so cute together.

We loved having her here.

Missy gets a booboo

Poor little MissyGirl. We noticed that she had been licking and licking her foot and thought nothing of it because dogs lick, right. Well, then she started limping on our walks and when I took a look, one of her little foot pads was all icky looking and way swollen. I tried some basic first-aid on her and when I put some peroxide on it, she started screaming like a baby. They say little dogs are alot more melodramatic and that's definetly true for Missy.

Missy licking her home made booty. Of course it only lasted about 10 minutes before she started gnawing it off.

"I hate my life"

Any who, a week later, it hadn't changed at all so we finally decided to take her to the vet. So of course they gave me meds to give her and they were complicated. Twice a day this , once a day that, every other day this, blah blah blah. Oh well, she's finally better. What an adventure.

Luke is FAMOUS!!

Well, maybe not all that famous, but I'm sure proud of him. We've said in the blog before that Luke had joined an a capella group called Looney Tunes. Well, today, HE WAS ON THE RADIO!!! he was with his group. Every Sunday, after church, the N.C. State radio station has an a capella block and they invited luke's group to come sing. It was so surreal listening to my very own husband sing and talk on the radio while I'm driving in my car. I am so proud of him!!!!!!! Unfortunately, I'm not savvy enough to figure out how to get a recording on the blog so you all can hear; maybe luke can figure that out. Luke has such a great distinct voice that I could hear him over all the others. Those of you who've heard Luke sing know exactly what I'm talking about! I am sooooooooo proud of him !!!!I LOVE LUKE!!!!!

P.S. Go see Hairspray the movie. It was AWESOME!! And that's not just my opinion, Luke loved it too!

All By Myself

Luke just left about 10 minutes ago for Greenville for a friend's bachelor party and then playing Xbox 360for most of the day tommorrow. He'll be there until tommorrow evening and I'll be here all alone. Feeling kinda bummed about it but Luke encouraged me to make the most of it. I do have alot of paperwork to get done, and housework to get cleaned. I mean, what could be better than loads and loads of laundry. I do like a clean house though!!! Hopefully some of my girlfriends will be up for hanging with me. I hate being inside all the time. Good thing I have MissyGirl to make me feel guilty if I don't take her out on a walk.

"I'm so bored"

The Mom Song Sung to William Tell Overture

I saw this on Good Morning America and I thought it was really funny, especially the last 5-7 seconds. My mom told me abuot 98% of everything this lady says. I hope you like it too!!
