Once Upon A Time

It occurred to me the other night that I haven’t told you how The Cowboy purposed to me, and let me first say it’s way better when he tells the story.

I love seeing his eyes light up with excitement, as he unfolds our story.

With that said here goes!

It happened in the most magical place in the world, Disney World. My Mother needed help with an event she was hosting in Disney world over Labor Day Week. All hands on deck were needed, so my Dad, The Cowboy and I all tagged along for the event.

Little did I know a ring was hidden safely away in our back pack.

Our first day in Disney World had to be spent at the Magic Kingdom and I had such an amazing time showing The Cowboy around the land of magic and pixie dust. But the real magic didn’t happen till that night.

Once the sun had set and the crowds had gathered, the Disney firework show Wishes began. And it was there in that moment that this conversation happened.

“Stephanie, can I ask you a question?”
“What!?” (I was rather hot and sweaty and trying to pay attention to the fireworks so my answer was less than romantic)
“Will you marry me!?”
“Are you serious!?”

Yes my friends, The Cowboy was serious. There in front of Cinderella’s castle, while fireworks were bursting in the air my Cowboy was down on one knee with a ring. Of course I said yes, he is everything I’ve dreamed of and more!

It was the most magical moment in my life and I cannot wait to be back in the happiest place on earth for our honeymoon as husband and wife.

You see once in a while in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.

What does your fairy tale look like?

Less Than A Year

Wow, it’s been a crazy 10 months!

Today I was adding to my wedding smash book, and noticed just how much has happened in the blink of an eye.

In three weeks I will be packed up to move, about to get married, and heading out on a Disney honeymoon. That’s a lot to get done in three weeks, especially the packing part!

If the past 10 months have flown by this quickly, I can’t imagine how quickly July 12th will pass before my very eyes.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me keep my head on straight these past months, The Cowboy and I will be eternally grateful ❤

Anti-Stress Kit

Let me just tell you friends, I have been blessed to know one of the sweetest girl in the world, and that is not an understatement.

Martha and I have been friends since we were little, but just within the past few years we have grown close. And can I just say, praise God! I don’t know what I would do without her, she has been such a great friend these past years. The other night my sweet friend stopped by with a basket of surprise!

She made me an “Anti-Stress Kit”, we all know wedding planning can get stressful! This completely has made my week, wait till you see all the amazing things inside!

Girls Only

Girls just want to have fun, right? Of course we do!

Before my friends and I graduated college my MOH (Maid Of Honor) threw me a wonderful bachelorette  party, one to remember!

Pictures, food, games, and cupcakes! It was a blast!

And we can’t forget all the goodies The Cowboy will sooner or later get to enjoy….
