On October 25th, 2008 I became Mrs. Dean!!!
My colors were black and pink.
I had 8 beautiful bridesmaids

Back 4, left to right:
Lindsay Monnahan Woodward - we actually both lived in Arkansas but it wasn't till college rooming together in NYC that we became best of friends!  she is going to visit tomorrow!  Yay!
Leslie Carter Lloyd - my cousin whom I love.  She is pregnant with her first and we just found out it's a GIRL!
Emily Stearns Newton - My oldest friend!  We were neighbors 4EVER.  Played everyday!  We carpooled, built forts, the lists goes on forever.
Rachael Miller - we both went to LRCA for 13 years together.  We were best friends in high school and roommates freshman year at U of A Fayetteville before I went to New York.
Front 4, left to right
Shelly Cain Hoyt - also one of my first friends as a child.  We had to have been in diapers when we met.  Actually she is tiny but look closer in this picture and you will see she is 7 months pregnant with twins BOYs!  What a trooper she was!  William and Jonas were born a month early at the beginning of December...they are precious!
Sara Thompson - We met after I moved back to Little Rock and when my sister and I bought our house she came and lived with us for a year!  Such fun when we were Road Kill for Halloween!
Christy Williams Lax - My matron of honor and my only sibling!  She got married 6 months before me.  It was a crazy time but we had so much fun planning things together.  She is the best sister in the entire world!
Alyssa Butkowski Vaswer - Alyssa and I became best buds in NY and she too is from Little Rock.  Her and her husband just set of to live in Japan for a couple years to teach English!
She is one of the most loyal people I have ever known!

I really have such beautiful friends!

These are a few of my favorite things!

The BEST yogurt EVA!  It doesn't taste tangy like I think most yogurt does.

Since I don't eat much meat...this has lots of protein and it delish!
and no I am not a vegetarian...just picky.
Another great new yogurt..comes in lot of interesting flavors....not your typical taste.
plus OMEGA 3 and DHA
I have been in a toast mood lately and this is awesome instead of jelly or preserves.
The best salad topping, mix with some baby spinach leaves and mandarin oranges...OHBABY!

That is lip smakin' good!
This would win the which one of these pictures doesn't belong, haha
Jackie Spratt cupcakes are WAY better than Sprinkles.
Really sweet though!!
Are you hungry yet?

I loved my dress!  Funny part is that when I went with my sister to look for her a wedding dress she tried this on and since she is a size -0 and the dress was 14 times her size it just wasn't the one for her.  So...when not to many months later I got engaged I ran to Proposal's in Little Rock (where she tried it on) and feel in love!  But being me I had to try on just about every dress at every bridal shop in the state of Arkansas...even driving to Low's in Brinkley, Arkansas (not a good experience at all...pushy people!).  As much as I loved the dress I didn't love the price, so during one of my visits to North Little Rock I came across Jodie Marie's on JFK.  Tina, the owner, is seriously one of the nicest people I have ever worked about bend over backwards!  It ended up being a great experience except the fact I had it custom measured and the company (Casablanca not Jodie Marie's) made it one inch to short.  But Tina saved the day when we took the shoes to have the heel cut down.

They are in no order because I can't figure this thing out.  I wish I could switch around the pictures after I load them.

Dum, Dum, Da, Dum.......(think really loud trumpet)

This picture makes me laugh because it looks like the cake is eating us not us eating the  To bad my one bite got shoved in my face and all down my dress.

Gigi and Camille were so beautiful!  
Bussled (is that how you spell it?)
To bad this is so dark!
My beautiful sister...same parents different hair color, :)
Such a special gift!
Someone needed a little powder...hello shiny face...but happy face :)
My mom was a knockout!  

Daddy's little girl

And now the best hee hee
Dearly beloved....
A professional shot 
Great image on Casablanca website

And they lived happily ever after.....

Welcome to the Dean's!
Come on In

We just got our new console table a few weeks ago!  I haven't had a chance to do much yet.
The mirror was already there when I moved in.  I am not sure I want to leave it there.
I would love to have a monogram made.

The table can open on both sides, here it is opened half way.

An empty frame haha
I was going to get a lamp but we have no outlets in the entryway.... one thing that will be in my future house.
