Can you tell I'm a huge fan of Carter? And juicy burgers. Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday, Kandee! Thought I'd pay a little homage to all of the wonderful years we've spent together. So very thankful for you. Can't wait to celebrate tonight over dinner and cupcakes. And not just any cupcakes. Hey Cupcake, here we come.

Tad and I had such a wonderful Valentine's Day filled with food, food and more food. We decided this year to exchange cards only. What sweet cards they were, though. Tad opted for more of a letter because well, that's his style. He also made dinner for me, my mom and aunt Carol. These sweet ladies also got us the cutest little cookie cake. We're a pretty festive family. We're also a family that has a penchant for horror movies. We wrapped up the night with a little thriller Carol rented for us. How romantic, right?

Did I mention Klifford had a Valentine? Well he did. That lucky lady would be Tad's sister, Samantha. He posed for a few shots with some treats from my dad. He hopes she likes them.

So can I dive into these chocolates now? Or are these not really for me?

Can't even believe we're three months away from the big day. Three months! It feels like just yesterday Tad proposed on that perfect August evening. I'm so thankful God gave me Tad. Both of our lives would be so very different had we not found each other again. We surely did not think we'd be married at age 26, but we're so grateful His plan led us here. In fact, never dreamed life could be so beautiful.

The wedding planning is coming along swimmingly. Definitely the most pricey little party I've ever had. Who knew? Worth every penny, though. Can't put a price on the celebration of love. A honeymoon is still up in the air due to school schedules and internships. We do plan on taking one, but it might not be until August. Hey, I'm very OK with waiting a wee bit longer to sit on an exotic beach with the new husby. Oh I think I like the ring of that.
