Thankyou soo much everyone!!
I'm really excited! I'm still searching for a venue....today i found out i couldn't get the little chapel i was hoping for (they're making some renovations to it that are going to take a while)...BUT i may get to have it at Opera Memphis or Occassions- both are REALLY nice places and pretty affordable too!
I think i'm going to make my own invitations, do my own flowers/decor and things like that- so i'll save on that dpt. As of right now i'm debating on two different months - it will eithor be in November of this year (only 3 months away! time wise/money that might be a little soon so i'm not sure yet!) or March of 2008. I think i'm leaning towards March but i'm not sure yet! When we set a date i'll let ya'll know!

I didn't think he was going to do it at all because he had taken soooo long about it- that's why i was completly suprised when he did it on my birthday
it couldn't have been more romantic or more of a suprise though!

how sweet of Colin to propose you on your birthday! He sounds like such a sweetheart. I am sooo happy for you both! so are our kitties and our other animals invited to the wedding?
Awww thanks hon!!!!
I was thinking about having one of the dogs in the wedding, but i'm afraid Fosters would be too crazy around all the people and Whiskey would think everyone was trying to kill him
so i don't think i'm going to have any furbabies at the wedding....BUT what i was thinking- is instead of giving gifts to guests/bridal members etc at the reception/rehersal dinner i think it would be better to make a donation from Colin and I to the shelter where i work and to St. Jude and leave a little note saying a donation has been made in their honor/etc. So that way we will get to help others too!

So how was the rest of the vacation?????
The rest of the vacation was great! Thanks for asking! We went to Six Flags the first day, Hurricane Harbor (the water park part of six flags) on our birthdays and also back into the theme park for a bit. Haha I drug Colin on just about every rollar coaster/ thill ride there
(he HATES drops so i didn't think he'd actually do it- but he was sooo brave and ride all the scarry rides with me
-i'm a rollar coaster junkie
The only one he flat out refused to go on was Mr. Freeze- one of my favorites, so he stood in line with me and was there at the exit cheering me on
) We went to the zoo the next day (30th) and it was AWESOME!!!!
The St. Louis zoo really is amazing!!! I LOVED the penguin exhibit and the giraffe one. I got some good pictures of the giraffes on my disposable camera. The Sun Bears were absolutely adorable too! I wanted to take one of them home with us
The hepatarium was also amazing!!! The St. Louis zoo also had a really neat gorilla exhibit and some other ones for the monkeys/primates that were soo cool!!! The Giraffes were definitely my favorite though
one of the baby giraffes kept trying to put it's head over the side where all the visitors were- it was sooooo sweet! I got some really good close up pictures. I also thought it was really neat how much the St. Louis zoo is doing to help endangered/threatened animals with the different programs they have- that is sooo good!
We also got to see one of his former Navy buddies and go out to dinner with him. That was fun as well. It was a really nice trip!
Best of all, it was really affordable too!
