congratulations lindsay and barrett!

lindsay mcvay, a friend of mine that i met through kate, got married this weekend! the wedding was absolutely beautiful! lindsay and barrett got married at the state capitol! it was such a unique yet perfect wedding venue! lindsay looked beautiful and barrett looked so handsome in his air force uniform. not only was it fun to be a part of the wedding, i got to see a bunch of kate's friends from college that i was able to meet while kate was at ou. if it was a fun reunion for me, i can't imagine how fun it must have been for lindsay and all the other girls from ou! ...anyway, here are some pictures from our 10th and final wedding of the year! :)

2nd annual

kate hosted an ornament exchange this year, the second annual ornament exchange. there were girls from deer creek, church, and her old job...it was so much fun chatting and laughing with everyone, talking about life and kate's recent engagement! :) i found and tried a new recipe, and i think they were a hit!


leigh saw this and thought of me! i absolutely love it and can't wait to use it in the kitchen!

and THIS is what i ended up with... (which i really love)

but i have to say, that my FAVORITE part of the night was when...

kate officially asked me to be in her wedding! yay! i am so excited and honored to be a part of her special day! :) and she was so sweet to give me this

overall it was a wonderful night! :)

we have crown molding!



the painter is coming tomorrow morning to paint the crown molding to match the woodwork in our kitchen! yay!

KATE IS ENGAGED!

the day has come! my very best friend in the whole world is engaged to the man of her dreams! :) kate and matthew got engaged tonight at the petroleum club in downtown oklahoma city! matthew picked her up and they had dinner at deep fork grill, where they had their first date. they also sat in the same booth as they did on their first date! then he blindfolded her and drove her to the petroleum club...kate said the next thing she knew, is that she was in an elevator. then she started hearing dishes clinking (is that a word?) together and then he took off her blindfold and they were in a privately rented room at the petroleum club! they sat and talked and had dessert (kate's favorite, rusty's frozen custard chocolate fudge brownie) and then they danced and chatted some more, which led to the proposal! WOO HOO! aaron and i are SO SO happy for the two of them! matthew moved here about 2 years ago from mississippi, to do a fellowship at ou medical center and they met in sunday school...what a neat story they have! he is everything she's been praying for and i'm sure she's the same for him! so after their eventful night, their first stop was our house! here are some pics...

WE LOVE YOU KATE AND MATTHEW AND CAN'T WAIT FOR OCTOBER 24, 2009!!!

happy wedding day kellie!

so...the other weekend i went to my friend, kellie's wedding. well, i accidentally deleted all but 3 pictures! i thought i had successfully transferred all the images to my computer, so i deleted them of my camera, when in fact i had only transferred 3...so unfortunately i only have 3 pictures to show for her wedding, and they're not really that great because my camera was on the wrong setting! the wedding was beautiful though! kellie and josh were married in a beautiful catholic church and everything about it was perfect! ...especially the veil ;) (she borrowed my veil) their wedding was november 14, and they are STILL honeymooning! lucky ducks...
