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 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!
