Still No Change

I haven't forgotten to update this. We just haven't made any new plans, yet.

June 12 and 13 is my 10-year High School reunion. We are getting so old. :-) While we're there, we're going to see Vesica Piscis with the set-up for our wedding. Therefore, we'll be able to tell if we can fit all of our guests without some having to sit in the restroom all evening. I'm really hoping they surprise me with a great layout that will work for us!

Keep your fingers crossed!

Location, Location, Location

Todd and I had a plan to get our location picked before we did any other planning. Well, trying to pick a location in a town that's 4 hours from where you live is not easy. However, I think we have it narrowed down to 4 places:

Vesica Piscis - This is our favorite location. However, if we want to do it here, we're going to have to cut some of you guests off the list. This is not something we're interested in doing. You better think about being nice, though! :-)

Five Oaks Lodge - This location is very much "us". It's laid back and on a small lake. If we do it here, we're going to have to find a church for the ceremony.

Post Oak Lodge - I like this location because of the on-site lodging. It's pretty, but it's not my favorite.

The Summit Club - Well, anyone that has been to The Summit Club knows it's the best view in Tulsa. It's fantastically beautiful inside, but it's a little fancier than what we originally had envisioned. However, we haven't counted it out.

If you have been to any of these places, let us know! We love input. I LOVE WEDDING PLANNING!!!

Matron of Honor

I have a Matron of Honor, now. I am pleased to say that my cousin and best friend, Bradette Ostrander, will stand next to me in my wedding!

Todd had a very cute, miniature billboard made for her. It said:
Matron of honor (n) \ˈmā-trən əv ˈä-nər\: a married woman acting
as the principal attendant of the bride at a wedding
So, what do you think about being mine?!

I told her I had a 'thank you' gift for her for the engagement gift she gave us. When she opened it, she found the billboard. It was fun!

Yay for fun surprises!!

Engagement Party

Thank you to everyone that was able to make it to the engagement party! Todd and I had an absolute blast!!

Thanks to Julie for saving us with her camera. Our batteries weren't working when we got there, and I won't tell you who I think messed up charging them. :-)

Surprise Proposal

Well, our story started LONG AGO before many of you were ever born. Nooooo...it started a little over 4 1/2 years ago. However, the really fun stuff happened on March 27, 2009.

Todd and I took the kids to our church for dinner and a movie on their final night of Spring Break. Everything was pretty normal. We ate dinner, watched "Fireproof", did a little dance...I'm getting off track. After the movie, Todd told me he had been asked to close the congregation in a prayer. I really thought that was what he was doing. Here's what really happened...

We even made it on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eon5b0cuUXg.

As you can imagine, I was more than excited! My mom and sister were both there, and I didn't even know it. My mom had flown in all the way from Corpus Christi.

Anyway, we took lots of pictures, and I made tons of phone calls that night. It was the most perfect proposal ever!!!
