Michael Jackson

I’m too young to have known Michael Jackson in the prime of his career but I love his music just the same. I know that he lived a very eccentric life and some things that he did I do not agree with but let’s face it what he did with his music made music what it is today. He will be truly missed by many people but his music will live on forever.

So this weekend was AMAZING!! Such a wonderful time to get away from everything and just spend time with the one I love!! Wilmington is such a wonderful town full of things to do. We ended up going to the beach on Friday and then Saturday we went to see the USS North Carolina Battleship. Let me tell you that thing is HUGE!! It took us about 4 hours to tour it!! Saturday evening we went out and saw the town and had some dinner. Sunday it was back to the beach and then over to Fort Fisher to look around. Such a wonderful weekend!!! Enjoy some of the shots we took.

Oh what a night!

Doesn't that make you want to sing that song by Frankie Valli??

Anyways, last night the sister in-laws and mother in-law and I all went uptown to see the Phantom of the Opera. Let me tell you it was the best thing ever!! I'd read the book and of course seen the movie so I was tickled to death when they bought me a ticket for my birthday.

I had such a wonderful time and I suggest if you ever get a chance to go see it, GO!! It is so worth it. Here is a photo of my favorite part of the play, past the point of no return.

Keeps Getting Better

Sunday is mine and Cray’s one year anniversary. It’s amazing how time flies. How that one amazing day is now a bunch of sweet memories.

Cray and I didn’t want a long engagement so I planned our wedding in 3 short months. It was really a piece of cake because I already knew everything that I wanted. I was really worried that we wouldn’t get the church booked but my sneaky husband-to-be had already booked the church 2 months before he even asked the question.

So I spent March, April, and May planning our dream wedding. Those three months were crammed with 2 bridal showers, lots of outings with my mom, finding a home and closing on it, and the passing of my grandmother. It was one big emotional rollercoaster. But that sweet summer night made it all worth it.

Here are a couple of my favorite pictures taken by our photographer and some guests. Enjoy!!

Time Flies

It’s hard to believe that a year ago today Cray and I were closing on our home. Time just flies by when you aren’t even looking. It was such a hard time trying to close our home. Believe me being a first time home buyer it was not a fun time for us.

We finally found the perfect home for us after looking at tones of MLS listings. It was always something. Yard was too small, not enough rooms, not in a good area, too far from work. Finally I pulled this one up and Cray said it was perfect!!! I was so thrilled. It was a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home on a ½ acre lot!! Perfect for two young kids starting out.

So we put in an offer and after about a day of going back and forth with negotiations we had a complete contract. We were going to close May 23st. Plenty of time to get everything in the house before we got married June 21st.

Well then our loan officer passed away and the bank decided they wanted to look over all of our paper work. I think I hate banks for this reason. It took them almost a month to decide that it was okay for us to have that loan. *sigh* What a pain in the butt!!!

So we finally got the call June 12th that we were going to close. YAY!! I was so agitated by this point and just ready to close. I was so raped up with finishing the details on the wedding that I just wanted it done! Thankfully we closed with no more problems and Cray and I were the happy owners of our own little casa.

Now a year later we are happy as could be dreaming up of ways to turn our casa into everything we ever wanted. Such a whirlwind of excitement June was last year. Thankfully this June is not so overwhelming. Mr. H is taking me to Wilmington for our one year. I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures of this beautiful historic town.

Have a great weekend!!!

This dress...WOW!!! At first I was like "no that's not me", but the more I look at it I know that it's a me dress! I can dress it up with some cute heals, a cardigan and some jewelry for work or on the hot summer weekends wear it with some flip flops. Those are the best kinds of dresses. Now all I need to do is talk Mr. H. into letting me have it. :)

Break out the wine!!!


Well today is my parents 35 wedding anniversary. So in honor of them I'd like to raise my wine glass and say congratulations and that I will consider myself blessed if in 34 years Cray and I will be as happy and in love as they are!
