Hello World

Hello world, this is Tyler, the fiance. I was told that I'm suppose to blog on this, so I decided to write a short little note to all of our readers out there. So this is me saying hello to all of you, "HELLO READERS!"

This whole wedding planning thing is fun. Meghan has done a great job of including me in this whole process. I cannot wait for when we get to register because we get to use that gun thing. And since I'm not much of a hunter, a registry gun is about as close as I will be getting to a "gun". I really want to register at Best Buy for a TV but Meghan does not, let us know what you think from our poll over there ------>

I look forward to speaking with everyone again as we continue to plan this wedding and "do life" together.

Wedding Update: The Dress

I found my wedding dress this weekend.

I still can't believe it.  After only two weekends of shopping I found THE dress.  Walking into the store I had no idea that I'd find my dress, but God had something else in mind.  Mom and I went to go look at reception venues that morning and after we finished we went to a local dress shop near by called Terry Costa.

When we walked in we found that they were having a trunk show that weekend.  So I picked out about five dresses and Leticia, the saleswoman, helped me suit up.  She was so awesome, I felt like I was on Say Yes to the Dress.  Anyways, the first one I tried on took my breath away.  I came out and didn't want to take it off.  I probably stood infront of the mirror for like 30 minutes. While I was admiring the dress I got to meet the designer!  His name was Arthur and he was amazing, such a nice guy.  After awhile I realized I needed to give up the mirror for the other girls that were shopping there too and tried on some other dresses.

All in all it came down to two dresses.  I left the store that morning and came back that night with an entourage (Mom, Dad, Tyler's Mom, Whitney and Candice)  to help me decide.  When it came down to it I picked the first dress that I tried on, in that store.  I'd go into detail, but Tyler and I still have nine months until our wedding so I need to keep it hush hush until then.

Now I just have to wait four months for it to come in.  I'm counting down the days....

Welcome to our Blog!

On Tuesday, March 30, 2010 at approximately 5:15 p.m. Tyler Gatewood made me the happiest woman in the world and asked me to marry him.  We are three weeks into the planning process and so far so good.  Soon enough we will have a date to report to all of you!

As we embark on the road ahead we thought it'd be fun to create a blog to update our friends and family on the engagement process and then wherever else life takes us.

We hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as we enjoy writing it!  Tyler and I are so excited to start the next chapter of our lives as husband and wife and look forward to sharing the journey with you.
