So apparently today is husband appreciation day. 🙂 I know Dalton James Hall has only been my husband for 6 months 14 days but I appreciate him as if he has been by my side forever. It’s hard to summarize the appreciation you have for someone that means the absolute world to you . He is the most hardworking, sincere, kind, thoughtful, sweet, passionate person I know. I waited a long time to find a life partner and they weren’t kidding when they said it will be worth the wait. He gets up everday and goes to work to provide a stable life for our family. He comes home and helps me around the house without asking. He goes out of his way to help anyone and everyone. He treats his parents with respect and will do anything in the world for them. He loves my momma like family and will do anything in the world for her. He’s a lot funnier than I am. (Even though I hate to admit it). He loves me day in and day out no matter what. He makes me feel beautiful and loved every single day. He takes such good care of me when I am sick. This year he had flu + morning sickness to deal with and he was such a great nurse and comfort to me. I have to admit though I am most excited about the new role he takes on this year as Daddy to our daughter !! He already takes such good care of his girls :).. Girls take note there are good guys out there and trust when I say it was worth the wait..
We are pregnant!!! So many emotions and thoughts as we found out this news. I knew from the get go I wanted to document everything to show our child one day. Before I get started I know many people have struggled and are struggling with having a precious baby. Believe me I know I was one of them. For you guys hang in there , the lord works in mysterious ways. I truley do believe in God’s timing. I first had an inkling the Monday of Thanksgiving. My period had been pretty consistent after taking medicine to get it back in June 2017. It never came that Monday so I took a test. It was very faint but it said pregnant. I thought no way because it was so light.
So I waited a couple days then took another one. It was the same thing. So thanksgiving night Dalton & I took a trip to walgreens. I splurged for the digital test so there was no reading between the lines… It was late and I was going to take it in the morning. Oh and my mom was,staying the night that night because she was visiting for Thanksgiving. 4:00 am rolled around and I had to pee. Dalton snoring away I go pee and take the test. The digital test is like a little computer. It loads 3 lines then says pregnant or not pregnant. There I stood at 4am standing over that test then it said Pregnant !!!! My life changed forever!! Of course I had to go wake Dalton up and he just hugged me so tight and was so happy.
So before we found out for sure, We decided to tell our parents at Christmas. I had this cute onesie picked out they could unwrap. Well that went out the door . We told them both that Friday…. I went Monday to the dr and they confirmed it. It still didnt feel real. They scheduled my first ultrasound for 12/28 a month away!!
Thank you for reading!!

I went back and forth on if I wanted to do first look photos on the wedding day. I decided since our wedding was right at sunset that we needed to take some before. As I hurriedly finished getting dressed with several people around me, ” Someone said ITs time he’s waiting for you outside. ” Don’t get me wrong Mr. Hall gives me butterflies all the time but this time It was different. I walk out the back door of the cabin with the DJ playing some generic wedding music with no words. I instantly start crying. I have dreamed, waited for this day my whole life. There was a lot going on but everything just went quiet In my head and it was just Dalton and I by the pond. I walked up behind him. Pinched his butt and grabbed his hand. We exchanged our letters and read them back to back. His letter was the sweetest most thoughtful thing I have ever read. Then we turned around and I seen my future right there in front of me. All that I ever wanted. Here our some of my favorites from our first look. ( A BIG THANK YOU TO SYDNEE AND MAL FOR CAPTURING THIS FOR US).
It took a couple of weeks to write this blog but I wanted to share our special day with everyone. As a little girl you dream of your wedding day. I never knew what kind of stress or time it meant to plan a wedding but after the end result I am so happy we done it. That day we woke up to wonderful weather! The forecast all week had predicted rain. We went and visited Daltons family before we headed to the cabin to finish up the décor at the cabin. Just driving dirt roads that morning with the windows down with my soon to be husband was amazing. I will always remember just looking over at him smiling at how excited I was.
The morning of ❤
Gorgeous drive to the cabin
Get to the cabin still had tons to do :(. My MOH bestie got there that morning and helped with getting the décor just right . Then the girls headed to take showers and go to the hair salon. Of course we had mimosas while we were getting ready. Its been a long time since Me and Sav got to just hang out by ourselves. I cherished that on such a special day. I am very blessed with a dear dear friend. Then we listened to old school rap and drove back out to the cabin.
Got back to the cabin then began the chaos. We did pictures before. Going to write a separate post for our first look photos. The ceremony went off without a hitch. My friend Steve Brogdon performed our ceremony for us. He did such a wonderful job. It was very special to hear his speech he prepared because he is such a good friend with such a big heart. Our wedding party included:
Daltons Best Man: Ryan Adkins Groomsmen : Josh Summers.
My Maid of Honor : Savannah Pyle
Flower Girls: Reese Waldrop & Addleigh Pickett
Ring Bearers: Logan Bonzo & Gabriel Bonzo
Friends and Family that some I haven’t seen in years came to celebrate with us. We are so very blessed to start this amazing journey with so many wonderful people around us.
Thank you for reading … Stay tuned for more wedding pictures 🙂
August 16th: Something you miss..
This is an easy one. I miss my best friend being at the end of hall from me! We had so much fun doing absolutely nothing. We may not live together anymore but THANK god for cell phones & technology. I will never forget my times at 463 🙂 Here are some throwback pics for ya!
BACHELOR IN PARADISE IS BACK!! THE MOST DRAMATIC SEASON YET…LOL..
Ok here are my 5 thoughts the first two episodes.
- I loved the wedding of Evan & Carly!
- Taylor drives me nuts. I know she is falling in love with Derrick but she is on a high horse still thinks she is smarter than everyone else. ANNOYING AF.
- Raven is my ultimate favorite. She is real and honest and funny as hell.
- Alex has little man syndrome and is making a fool of himself.
- My favorite guy so far is Deanny boy 🙂
Hopefully the season will really take off. Whose your favorite???
Thanks for reading 🙂
August 10th: Write about something you feel strongly about.
Friendship. Other things come in go but true friendships can get you through the darkest times in your life. They can also break your spirit down just the same. The older I get the more I realize its not about quantity in friends its about quality. I have had so many different kinds of friendships in my life. I truly believe God puts people in your life at certain times when you need them. I love the quote: Friends are the family you chose. I have been blessed throughout my life with some of the best friends that have had my back through and through… Here are just a few snapshots of some great friends. Not all of them but a few 🙂
August 11th: Something you always think What if?
I used to always think what if with x boyfriends now I never do because my what if has been answered with dalton. God bless the broken road that led me straight to him.
Day2: Something someone told me about myself that I never forgot.
This one is a tough one….. I do remember a dear friend of mine and I just talking about our lives the good the bad and the ugly…. And her saying Kane you are so brave & a survivor…. I never thought of myself like that. I just take life as it comes. Ive been dealt some bad cards but survived and now the happiest I have ever been preparing for my upcoming wedding.
Day 3: Top 3 Pet Peeves…
Im going to break out my negative nancy here 🙂
1. Inconsiderate people: Take a minute and consider how your actions or words affects others… Be Kind People
2. Loud People. My mom always told me I am my Papa Bill made over. He couldnt handle people slamming the door or being loud. Take it down a notch …..
3. Slow drivers in the fast lane…. http://5newsonline.com/2017/07/31/new-left-lane-law-will-soon-go-into-effect-in-oklahoma/
