I'm supposed to write a blog every month on the 2nd. I confess, I forgot to write last month's blog, but I *was a little busy on the 2nd...becoming a Mrs. wedding.jpg
I've been stressing out planning the wedding for months and months, but in the end it was without a doubt, worth all the stress.

The weather cooperated, the nine-months-pregnant bridesmaid didn't give birth that day, and I didn't pass out on the altar. We danced the night away with our friends and family in my parents backyard, in the far far East Valley. My husband Mark had about 60-70 of his friends and family come in from Texas, and they seemed to be in awe of the Saguaros.

Our first dance didn't go quite as we rehearsed. It turned out to be a little bit tough to step backwards in my dress. We danced to Stevie Wonder's "You are the sunshine of my life" as the sun went down over Superstition Mountain. The band was wonderful but we couldn't seem to stay on rythym, so we just started doing "the robot." Soon the guests joined in, and the robot somehow became the most popular dance move of the night.

Tammie Coe made us a beautiful cake, Shining Star Band kept the guests dancing the night away and my parents did an unbelievable job transforming the backyard into a reception site! Mark and I felt truly blessed, especially to have all of our friends and family there to share our special day with us. We hope the guests had half as much fun as we did!
