Melanie’s Bridal Tea

Today several ladies from my church hosted a bridal tea for my good friend Melanie.  Some of my long time readers may remember that Justin and I hooked Melanie up with Justin’s best friend Wade last year.  Well, they got engaged soon after and now all the fun parties are happening!!  Their wedding is July 9th at Melanie’s parents farm in Blount County.  Here’s some pictures from the tea:

This is Ellen, Wade’s mom.  Ellen threw me and Justin’s Tool & Gadget shower at her house when we were getting married.  She’s such an awesome person and Mel is looking forward to being her daughter!


These are all the hosts of Mel’s shower, including my mother-in-law, Debbie (she’s the one wearing blue).


I heart me some Mel :)

On an unrelated note, I got a lot of feedback on my last post about the formatting in blogger.  It seems like everyone gave me the same response and that response was to get Windows Live Writer.  So due to all the people that said they were using it, I downloaded it and am using it right now.  Gotta say….I LOVE IT!!  It is so much easier than having to force things to format in blogger when it doesn’t let you do what you want it to do.  You don’t have to worry about html codes with Live Writer either, which is awesome.  I highly suggest everyone that blogs download it! 

Well, tomorrow is THE day.  April 18th.  The tax deadline.  This past Saturday was my first Saturday not to work since the end of January (with exception to the one Saturday that everyone in the firm has off after the March 15th deadline).  It felt incredible.  This week is also my first Friday off, actually, the entire firm is closed on Friday, so everyone is off work.  YAY!!!  My sister, Jennifer, comes in town next weekend because it’s her baby shower weekend so I’m really looking forward to seeing her!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
