For the past few weeks, I've been doing a lot of planning & [preparing. Friends of ours, Kristie & Michael, just built their first home. So, about a month and a half ago, Kristie's girlfriend, Sara asked if I was interested in throwing a house warming with her. Of Course!!!! So, we planned it for this past Saturday, the 24th. It was a wonderful turn out.
Kristie & Michael got married 05.18.08. They were High School Sweethearts, and have lived in the same town their entire lives. Michael is a contractor for Gulf Steam while Kristie is entering her second year of teaching Kindergarten. She's outstanding. They started building this year around January-February.
The Morning of the party.
Sara & myself went to their house to set up & prepare.
Sara was in charge of the invitations, our gift, a plates, cups, forks, etc.
We also decided to get this photo framed, and have it matted where the guest could sign. I was in charge of the food. They preferred Hamburgers & Hotdogs. So we did so, plus backed beans,pasta salad, a fruit tray, variety of dips & Chips and then dessert.

Mrs. Cheryl, Kristie's wonderful mother also came to help.
Sara & I thought a monogrammed bucket would be a great idea to get for the couple and to hold wine & beer. Although, when the time came... We just used a cooler.
Here's a photo of it & the picture of the house framed.

Again, it couldn't have turned out better. With friends, family, & great help... the party couldn't have been bad if we wanted it to.
Another Chapter in their lives has been created!
Congratulations to Kristie & Michael!

What is your nickname?
Most people call me Jess. VERY rarely do I hear Aaron say my name. He has lots of names for me, they change daily, but you will hear him call me j, and at home it's j or snookums.
If you could choose how you died, how would you like to die?
I don't like this question or talking about it. It really freaks me out. But, my answer is fast. Like everyone else, I do NOT want to suffer.
If you could have named yourself, which name would you have picked?
I don't really know. There are a ton of names I really like. Jessica is TOO popular, but I don't look like anything but a Jessica.
Who were you named after or for what reason did your parents choose your name?
My name was going to be Jennifer all the way until the day I was born. I'm not named after anyone, but my Dad just decided Jessica Lynn was the right name.
