posting as the soon-to-be-Mrs. Pinky :)

SO, I haven't posted in a few weeks and it's already March! Many people that read this will already know the info I'm about to tell you, but I thought I should post it separately here anyway.

I'm engaged!!! My lovely Pinky asked me to marry him on my birthday, February 9th, while we were on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was so exciting and I was SO surprised! We got to celebrate after our special birthday drinks on the beach with my family at dinner. They were so surprised and happy, too!!

Our wedding will be October 22, 2010 here in Nashville, at Riverwood Mansion. It's a lovely historic home with a garden, where we'll have the small ceremony, and with a lovely pavilion in the back where we'll have our larger reception. I'm so excited!!!!! The planning has been fun and I've gotten a lot done, because that's how I roll. I hate waiting until the last minute! I have the MOH's dress, I'm buying my dress this week, I have the location squared away, the photographers lined-up, decoration ideas, I think I know where we'll get our cupcakes, and I'm registering a bit online today. Whew!

It's an exciting time and I was lucky enough to get to visit Arkansas this last weekend to share in the excitement with the rest of my family. We had lovely family time, as usual. I was so glad to see my brothers and my awesome sister-in-law! We got to have a nice brunch with my dad and stepmom and meet their adorable newest family member, Rudy, the schnoodle! I love saying that!

Here are a few pics from the engagement and from the family weekend. I'll keep posting more wedding planning stuff as I get it done! xoxox
