Funny Pictures

I had to share this picture of Will. I took this picture at Kanapaha Gardens in Gainesville almost two years ago. I think he was being a monkey, but I'm not really sure.

Kaity decided that she was done walking and refused to get up. Luke carried her the last hour.

Not a Good Start to the Week

So, I didn't even make it to work on Monday before my got all messed up. I was rear-ended about 4 blocks from work. The car is semi-okay, but not drivable. I seem to be okay, just really annoyed. I am hoping the rest of the week goes better.

Tuesday I discovered I didn't have enough textbooks for the class I am teaching on Wed. I have 50 people signed-up so I over-nighted books from Gainesville. I hope they get here.

Chris and Laura's Wedding

We went to Luke's brother s wedding the week after Christmas. We left on Luke's Birthday, the 31st and returned the 7th. We celebrated my birthday on the 5th, Christmas on the 2nd, and Chris and Laura's wedding on the 3rd.

Their wedding was beautiful. It was cold and there was lots of snow because it was in Western Massachusetts. While our wedding will be different, I hope it goes as smoothly as theirs.

Wedding Planning

So Mom came up last weekend and we went dress shopping. I was determined not to buy it yet for whatever reason. Well, after trying on dresses all day, I ended up getting the every first one I tried on. It is nothing like I imagined. I do love it though. I really cannot say anything else about it because I don't want Luke to read this. You will just have to wait for pictures.

We're Engaged!

Okay, so I have been lax about blogging. I will admit that I am not as good as this as my sisters. Everyone has asked how he asked so here we go...
On Friday, Dec 11th we went to Orlando to Cirque de Solei - La Nouba at Downtown Disney. It was a great show and the performers really are athletes.

Next we went to dinner at Gaylord Palms which turns out to be where we were staying as well. We have a friend we use to work with who is a chef. Thanks for everything Rob! We were seated in a very nice quiet corner with a beautiful view of the conservatory. Rob met up with us and brought us a special plate of shrimp he had made. He also told us he upgrade our room. After he left a Spanish guitar player came over and sang a love song. Now, keep in mind it is 9:30 at night, my food is sitting in front of me for 15 minutes and I am hungry. I am ready to eat, but Luke seemed to have other plans. At that point, I could tell he was going even more serious on me and after taking my hand he asked me to marry him. He couldn't get down on his knees because we didn't have enough room. After a few seconds, once the shock wore off I said yes and the rest is history. Did I mention I told him not to ask me in a restaurant. Oh well, I was just glad he asked.

Our room was great. We were in one of the presidential suites. It was as big if not bigger than our apartment. Saturday we went to the spa where we had a mush needed massage. It was the most relaxing, wonderful weekend.

Allison took this picture Christmas Day at the Farm. It was really warm and didn't really feel like Christmas.
