Happy, Happy Holidays!

As most women are I am OBSESSED with the holidays.  I love absolutely everything about it, other than the fact that I ALWAYS procrastinate on my shopping.  I have had both of my trees up and my house decorated since before Thanksgiving, but have not even put a dent in my shopping.  So this weekend Luke and i are going to brave the crowds and hopefully knock some of it out.  When the holidays come and go I always wish that would have done more "holiday" activities, but this year I have managed to cover quite a bit of those.  We went to see a Christmas Carol at the IMAX before Thanksgiving.  I went to visit my best friend Katie in OH and she had an Ugly Christmas party,this weekend me and Brit are having a party at her house, went to Opryland Hotel and did the light thing, going to Dickens Christmas this weekend, and next weekend going to Gburg (where i hope to see some snow=), and also going to Dollywood while we are there!  So hopefully after the holidays I won't feel like I have been deprived ha ha.  Im really hoping i get a camera for Christmas so I can start posting pitcures =).  I hope everyone is having a WONDERFUL holiday season!!!



  This past weekend not one but TWO of our really good friends got engaged(one being one of my bridesmaids).  Lukes best girl friend Emily, and one my really good guy friends got engaged Sat night at Opryland Hotel.  They had a room at the hotel that night, and after dinner they went back to the room and Matt popped the question!  They plan to get married Labor Day weekend in Florida we could not be more excited about them!  Saturday morning I got a call from one of my best girlfriends(and bm) from college Jill.....her and Josh were in gburg for the weekend to celebrate their 5 year anniversary, and she told me that she had gotten her present from Josh and it was an engagement ring!!!  Unlike Matt and Emily this one was a complete shock to me!!  In fact I got off the phone and realized i didnt even ask how he popped the question ha ha.  I am so thrilled for them and cannot wait to return the favor and help her with all her weddings plans!!
