Knitting 101

So today I learned how to knit...again! I am trying to open my mind up to new crafts so that I can have some new things to do with all of my free time that will be coming soon. We started at about 7 o'clock and I left EY's house at about 9 o'clock and I was good until I got home. I guess I thought I was a pro or something because when I got home I decided I could watch American Idol, talk to Jeremy, and knit all at the same time. Well, let's just say I left EY's house with the beginning of something beautiful and now it's all all over the floor. I guess I should have stopped instead of knitting until 11PM! However, if you know me at all you know that I must strive to be good at everything that I attempt so that's why I continued. One of the women in the knitting group even termed me "the perfectionist." I was cool with that though because it's who I am:)

Well, peace out to all my HOMIES...ha! I'll catch you next time and be on the look out for my next blog where I will share our adventure in Daytona Beach, Florida. The NCSU Dance Team will be competing at college nationals where our toughest opponent is no other than...BYU! I know, you would have never guessed, but those girls can dance and they are hard to beat. Well, wish us luck and...Go Pack!

Our Wedding Day

J and I have made many friends since we got married on July 2, 2006!!! So I wanted to share our day with everyone since some of you guys weren't able to attend. Our wedding day was the best day of my life! There was lots of love, fun, and excitement that day and there still is today. Marriage is a wonderful commitment and I am loving every minute of it.

Now on with the story...

We got married at the Bicentennial Gardens in Greensboro, NC on a HOT summer's day. Family and friends enjoyed a weekend full of fun and love. We had an unusual rehearsal party...at the bowling alley! That's right, my entire family bowls and J learned how this year so we decided lets have a bowling party so that everyone can get to know one another in a fun, non-stuffy atmosphere.

The best part was when our wedding party decided to dress up as hillbillies, rednecks, Miami Vice,and hippies! It was the greatest. They were definitely the comedians that night! People really thought that's how they dressed. It was hilarious (in the words of a good friend)! Everyone even stayed in character for the rest of the evening. Their costumes really kicked off the party and gave everyone a HUGE laugh.

After all of the fun at the bowling alley some of my girlfriends stayed the night with me to help me get ready for the big day. I was so excited I got up at 6AM for a 4PM wedding! It was awesome though because it gave me time to reflect, read my scriptures, and write about the day in my journal. That was a very peaceful moment for me and I'm glad I got to have that before the rush of the day began.After all of the primping I was ready to go. So we headed to the site and got married! I have never been more confident about something in my life and that felt great! My mom always told me to be patient and "he" would come along and she was right. J is the greatest!!! He's my best guy and I love him very much. Our day was wonderful and we are having a great time being newlyweds. Being married to him is so much fun and we cherish everyday that we have together.
