Show and Tell Monday::Wedding Bells Ringing

Show and Tell Monday; Wedding Bells Ringing

Today I'm Linking up with Becky at From Mrs. To Mama

1. Are you married? If so when did you get married, and tell us about your special day. If not? How would you describe your dream wedding? 


     Yes!! My husband and I were married on January 16, 2010 in San Antonio, Tx.  It was really everything I could have wanted, the most important thing was that we were surrounded by our family and friends.  It ended up being somewhat of a huge college reunion and we wouldn't have changed that for the world!! It was so much fun having 200 of our closest friends and family to celebrate the day with us.  I planned the  wedding for 9 months and it was beautiful and so special.  

3. How about the engagement? Tell us your story. If not engaged, what's yourdream proposal?

 The hubby proposed one day as we were packing up to go to San Antonio and it came as a complete surprise! I knew we would be getting engaged at some point but he knew if he did some big thing I would have known so I woke up (I worked the night before) and was trying to pack up the cat into the carrier so we could head out of town and I called him to come help. I said "Can you hold this so I can put him in the bag and he had knelt down on my level and said " Well can you hold THIS" and I started to get annoyed because I wanted to leave and I looked up and he had the ring in his hand, He said a bunch of sweet words that I don't really remember because I was so blown away!! It was so simple and sweet and a surprise which is what I wanted!

4. Show us your wedding rings or an engagement photo! If not engaged/married ... show us your "dream" ring.

5. Tell us why you think marriage doesn't work out for so many? What can we do to make things last

I think marriage doesn't work for so many because people give up too easy, no one said marriage would be easy and there are going to be times of turbulence and hardship, but I think when you say your vows you are making a commitment to work through those tough times.  I think God needs to be the center of a marriage and if you build your marriage with God at the center it will last.  I know there are circumstances where it is healthier for a marriage to end and those two people have tried and can not work it out but I think that is a special situation and I think in general people give in too easy. I also think there needs to be compromise and communication, Not gonna lie communication is something we need to work on but I think the fact that we are honest with each other and compromise when needed is a big part of why we have been together for 9 years.  

We take time for each other to have date nights, we respect and trust each other, we make it a point to have dinner as a family at the table and talk about our day.  These are just a few things that I think help contribute to a lasting marriage, I know there are going to be times of hardship and times of happiness but this marriage is a journey and God is our leader.

loving your blog!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
