Happy Monday Everyone! Ok so Friday my BF, my girls and I all go shopping and running errands and such. We stopped here, we stopped there, we stopped everywhere! One of the stops was Wal-Mart. They had some towels on sale and I picked up a lavender one - my favorite color. I also bought groceries and such there... So we get home and we're unloading and putting things away. I went to grab the Wal-mart bag to get my towel and BF says I'll get that bag. I was like ok... So later that evening when I went into my room, I looked at the bag and said I thought you were putting this stuff away, he said sorry...I went to grab the towel AND THE RING WAS IN THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I get nervous, I fall into a fit a giggles - and so I did. I couldn't stop. He took the box and said "will you be my wife". I'm still laughing, but thankfully he knows that about me, that I start laughing and won't stop. I managed to say yes through it all. SO the date is 11/15/2008! Raven and Springlady you both know you're invited. Mel, I hope you can make it. Raven, you best be here!

Oh the kids (the girls) love it! Actually H helped him pick out the ring and she kept it a secret!!! L doesn't know yet because my mom is out of town until Wednesday we'll be telling our folks this coming weekend. I'm going to have L walk me down the aisle. My step dad did it the first time, but seeing that we're grown, and this is our second marriage, and to give him a special part, I want my son to walk me down the aisle. Including James and me, our wedding party is 17!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We actually had it all planned - we were going to Elope to good ol' Vegas for our birthdays. We're both in November he the 11th me the 15th. BUT we were NOT going to tell anyone about it. We were going to wait until February when we were going to have a reception. But we went to church yesterday and the sermon really touched us both and we mutually said ok we're having a ceremony and everyone can share in our joy. Whoever doesn't like it tough cookies!!! And here we are.
