happy 1st birthday benton!

if you know anything about me, you know that I am NOT an animal person. When I was little, I remember refusing to get off the sofa because I was convince our dog had rabbies. Then, I thought new dogs would be better so, I begged my parents for a dog. That christmas, I got 2 dogs... and after about a year, I barely would go near them. Call me a brat, but I just do not like anything about animals, the drool, the hair, the smell, nothing... however, matt is the total opposite. He has been wanting a dog as long as I can remember, and he finally wore me down. We got Benton in April... and I must admit, I have fallen for him. I can hardly believe I am admitting this, but I do, I like the pup. Alot. He does get on my nerves sometimes and gross me out at times, but at the end of the day I can't resist his cute face. He has a ton of personality and fits in great with our little family. So, for his 1st birthday we went all out... bow tie, ice cream doggie sundae, the movie Bolt, and a new toy. Don't worry, we won't become the crazy dog people, but until we have a real baby, he will have to do... and I get my baby fix this way ;)

matt and i took our first vacation just the two of us since honeymoon. we visited galveston beach and LOVED it! galveston is nothing glamorous, but it was exactly what we wanted... time alone, away and together!! perfect. we had a blast basking in the sun, playing frisbee on the beach, and just being together. love you babe, thanks for spoiling me on a fun vaca!!

mr. and mrs. stair

my sweet, high school best friend got married this past weekend! such a sweet time to catch up with old friends and celebrate mr. and mrs stair :) 14 out of the 15 people in the wedding party were from our high school... crazy! the only thing to make the weekend better would have been to have my man with me, but he was home being responsible and working. it was a very sweet weekend, and also the conclusion of all my college roomies getting married! wohoo! 256, we did it!!
stephanie, the beautiful bride, the night before the BIG day!
