We did it! I will post the photographer’s pictures when I get them but these are just a few from my phone.

Even at 11 AM, it was hot and miserable. That’s when the ceremony started. That’s ok though. I still would do it all over again because I love outdoor weddings and I knew it wouldn’t rain in July in Texas. I didn’t even check the weather all week. I just knew it would be ok.

Our officiant was my best friend’s husband. I’ve known him since I was 15. It was perfect. He did the best job.

The garden was perfect. Great flowers and light.

Then we headed to downtown Fort Worth. The reception room was exactly as I had pictured it. My best friend of 22 years (unofficial maid of honor) made sure that everything was in place before we got there.

The menus and personalized coasters from Etsy looked great. I also got the flower mason jars from Etsy and plan on using them in our house.

The cake and the brunch/lunch was unreal. I told Dwayne that my biggest regret was not taking the cake with us back to the hotel. I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

I created a wedding slideshow with my pictures, Dwayne’s pictures, and then couple pictures. It was about 24 minutes long. We watched it while we ate cake. Everybody loved it.

Only one problem all day- my iHome decided to not work and I had no music to walk down to. Oh well. I had no bridal party so it was ok.

Now we go home. Work on the house we just bought (I’ll post a picture later) and wait for September for his hometown celebration with 250+ people.

Top two are setups for the Pre-Wedding BBQ tonight at my parent’s house.
My best friend made the white frame. And I got the advice cards from Etsy.

Bottom is my wedding cake that I’m in love with. Yellow flowers and a yellow ‘P’ will be added tomorrow.

One of the things that I really wanted to do was make welcome bags for Dwayne’s family and best friend when they came up for the wedding.

I bought the personalized stickers on Etsy and created the welcome letter and maps myself for the folder. Inside each bag is trail mix, pretzels, gum, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, and an adult beverage.

Good thing I only had to make a few bags rather than 20-30.

This is my handwriting. How I have survived being a teacher is beyond me.

My Friday night at a baseball game watching the fiancé work.

I’m eating the spiciest chicken pad Thai ever. Thank goodness I changed the spicy level from a 7 to a 5.

I’m reading this book for grad school (Children’s Literature course). I’m so bored by it.

And lastly, tentative closing date for the house is this next Thursday!!!

This is how we are displaying the recently bought sign. It’s going to be in front of the garden entrance where the ceremony will be.

11 days!

This is what it’s going to be like having two kids huh?

Both want your attention. Both want to be as close as possible to you. And I have to make sure one doesn’t bother the other one too much.

Well I thought the puppy would need to see the vet before the old lady. But here we are.
Think it might be a tooth infection.
Update: Nope. She got in a fight on Saturday night with my mom’s pugs and we think they hit her jaw and may have broken or knocked it loose. Need to watch her for a month to make sure it heals!
