Finally a free weekend

Our summer has been jammed packed and it was nice to have a weekend that didn't involve traveling. We went to Mel & Sam's BBQ and then to the Cards game for a nice relaxing evening. It was perfect!

Another item off the list

Last night my bridesmaids, mother and I checked another item off the wedding to do list.
We found bridemaid's dresses!! I will remain closed lipped on which one but I will say it is beautiful on all 4 girls and is made by Bari Jay. We found the winner at McDaniel's Bridal.

Next up is shoes, suits for the boys and photographer. I love marking items of the list, what a relief!

Monday is the Menu meeting for our reception, can't wait to see what sort of grub we can come up with.

Happy Weekend,

Ceremony Locale

We finally came to a decision and we will be getting married Jan. 22, 2011 at Redeemer Lutheran Church here in Springfield. This is the church I was confirmed and where my youngest sister attended grade school. Hopefully (fingers crossed) we will be married by Pastor Sippy, we just love him! More details to come.

Let's Celebrate!

We want to thank everyone for coming out Saturday for our Engagement Shower. We sure do feel like we have the best family & friends a couple could ask for. We have already used some of our amazing gifts - John trimmed the hedges, I baked a new casserole with our pyrex. With our new knives cut up some chicken and measured it with our kitchen scale. Oh and the pillows are amazing!!!
Here are a few framers from the fun night. Thanks Megan, Tim & Trina for a perfect celebration!

And then there were 8...

We want to give a warm welcome to our amazing additions to the Hamra Squad Wedding Party...Mr. Bogie Spruill and Ms. Trina Appelquist. We couldn't imagine our big day with out you guys. Welcome aboard!

Too busy Limin' to blog

Sorry friends, we took a vacation from blogging to Tortola, BVIs.
It was the most fantastic & magical place we have ever visited. I am already making plans to return. Megan & Tim were the best traveling buddies a couple could ask for. We had a bumpy ride getting there to say the least (cancelled flights, wrecked jeeps, overnight layovers, lost luggage, etc, etc) but once we arrived it was perfection. I have so much more to share about this welcoming island and will plan to post some info in the next few days as well as more pictures.
Here are some to tied you over.
