the best trip ever

Time and time again while I was in Oklahoma this past week I was reminded of words I spoke the last time I was in the state: "Once I move away, I am never coming back." But I guess I didn't think about "the who" I would want to come back to see when I made that statement. I had a wonderful time...and I conquered my to-do list:
  • Hug + kiss my beautiful cousins, Tori + Allie (and maybe even my soon to be cousin-in-law, Thomas)
  • Sonic, Sonic and Sonic
  • Visit my HeartLine Family
  • Meet Evan Nutter
  • Bachelorette party it up with Garrisinni + friends
  • See my Amy + Ruben marry
  • Morning coffee + cupcakes with Kasa + Shayla
  • Shop at Daisy Exchange
  • Spend the night with Tyler + Roxie...well, not with them...but at their house
  • Drop off my ring at B.C. Clark
  • Watch the Royal Wedding with Sarah
  • Hair cut at Allure Salon in MWC {got a pedi and mani instead}
  • Go to church at CCN
  • Be tackled + tackle my CCN girls
  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Sunday afternoon games with Ben + Tabatha...and their two bebes
  • Miss the hubbs the entire time
*And any extra time will be filled with quality Tori, Allie, Sarah and Kasa time.

I also got to see Aunt Deb and get fitted for Tori's wedding in July...pretty productive I would say...and crazy busy.

Seeing my lovelies in OKC was so refreshing. Amy and Ruben's rehearsal dinner was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Countless people stood before their wedding party and testified to the love of God that had brought Amy and Ruben together and of all of the ways that God has protected them and their relationship. I felt so proud of Amy, so proud.
I also enjoyed some time with Kelly Nutter the 1st on our traditional cupcake venture...they {Gigi's Cupcakes} had special cupcakes for the royal wedding :)
And then there was time with the fam....Allie and I used to take better "model" pictures together...
and Thomas and Tori discover the joys of getting married while getting ready for engagement pictures...
Sarah was my +1 for all things wedding...and I love her even more for it
These pictures are not a true reflection of all the love received/given from/to my OK peeps. The hubbs and I don't really realize what we are missing, not being in OK...maybe it is an option to move back to after all.

Much love,
Emily Elizabeth
