Savannah, GA

A couple of weeks ago Zak and I went to Savannah, GA. Zak had a training class he had to take for his job so I went with him. He got out of his class at 5pm so we had a few hours a day to see the sights but luckily on Friday, before we left, we got to see some things in the daylight. Here are some of our favorite pictures that we took through the week...

The Mercer House...Spooky!

A cool church

A hotel on the water

The Tybee Island Lighthouse

We had a fun week and ate a lot of good food. We definitely want to go back for a real vacation!

In honor of the new movie Twilight coming out tomorrow in theaters I decided to turn myself into a vampire and join the Cullen family!! LOL

Update on Maggie

A few months ago we introduced Maggie to everyone and I thought it was about time for an update. She is about 9 months old now and is about finished growing. She has become very wild but is the sweetest dog (She is leaning up against my legs as I speak). We really enjoy having her and I think even Drew enjoys having her too. He was the one I was most worried about but he seems to be getting a lot more exercise these days because of his new buddy. Here are some fairly recent pictures of our new little family.

Roomie Fun Day!

A couple of weekends ago Zak and I made a trip up to Hendersonville to visit my roomie Jennifer and her husband Brian. We had such a fun day. We started our trip by having a picnic by a waterfall, and we hiked on different trails. Then later we ate pizza and ice cream. The day ended all too soon but I can't wait to see them again!

Meet Maggie

Zak and I have wanted a puppy for years but being up at school, it just wasn't possible. So two weeks ago we finally got our puppy. Her name is Maggie. She is a terrier/feist mix, about five months old, and the cutest little dog ever! She never meets a stranger and loves to play all day!

We really worried about how our new addition would affect our cat Drew. At first Drew was not so happy and he stayed away most of the time. Slowly, he crawled out from under the bed and has rejoined us. Even though Drew and Maggie chase, bark, hiss, and claw at each other, we believe they are becoming friends.

Our Honeymoon

We went to Hilton Head, SC for our honeymoon. We left the day after our wedding and stayed a week. We had the best time and we were really able to relax. Here are some pictures from our first vacation as a married couple....

Our Wedding Day

On July 26, 2008, Zak and I were finally married! It was an emotional, exciting day for us and it couldn't have gone any better than it did. My bridesmaids and I went and had our hair done in the morning while Zak played pool at his parent's house. After getting to the church we both stayed in our secret rooms and waited anxiously...we both were very nervous. Once our wedding ceremony began, all nerves vanished and it was a great day. Everything turned out as planned, everyone showed up, and only I forgot the vows haha. The day quickly ended but it was the best day of our lives...thus far.

Rehearsal Dinner

After our rehearsal we all met up at the Artist Cafe in Newton, NC for dinner. It was so much fun to get both sides of our families together and finally meet! Most of our families had to travel several hours to get there and so it was so nice of them to go out of their way to support Zak and I.

The rest of the evening included some really thoughtful toast from both of our Dads....

A Prayer Shawl made by Zak's mom....

A surprise groom's cake for Zak....

and fellowship with family and friends...

Thanks to both of our parents for always being there and supporting us our whole lives!!
