Congrats to David and Sarah who got hitched on Saturday. They were a couple who joined our church shortly after getting engaged and joined our newlywed cp group to learn from newlyweds before getting married, graduating, and moving on to jobs and their next stage of life. We enjoyed getting to know them this past semester and I look forward to seeing them grow as a couple the next few months before they move away. Here are some of the highlights of their wedding...
Its hard to tell but we managed to grab our own cp group block seating at the wedding
Funny story...so we were are coctail hour of the reception, hanging out waiting for the party to show up and Laura looked over and this burlap square had caught on fire by one of the chafing dishes...Kelly's maternal instincts suddenly kicked in and she started running to the fire and started fanning it (which kind of made the fire grow more). Luckily its hard to miss a pregnant lady running across the room and then stopping to wave her arms, so she grabbed Ben's attention who rushed over and poured his beer on it and put it out. My husband then retrieved the burlap square and wrapped it as a gift so we could give a group gift to the lucky couple
As you imagine a house built in the 1930s within a semi redneck neighborhood might be a little quirky, I thought I might share some of those quirks with you.
1. One of our neighbors has a rooster that crows all day long (and no there is no farmland near us)
2. There is a huge cat invasion in our neighborhood
3. Because there is a huge cat invasion, we now have a pet cat that we call rogue kitty. We call her Rogue Kitty because when our grass is long, she spends her days stalking small critters and bugs. When our grass is short, we discovered that she hangs out on our porch. I saw her today took a picture of her...when she heard the click of the camera, she suddenly hid and then popped out when I least expected it. Very fitting for her name
4. Our electricity can handle our tv, sound system, and dvd player on one circuit, but another circuit we have can barely handle a light being turned on at times.
5. Our neighbor has so many people coming in and out of his house, we have no idea of who actually lives there.
6. Our house grows seedlings better than I can.
Congrats to David and Leslie who got married this past Saturday. I've known them for several years now and got to serve on staff with Leslie for a year so it was very exciting to finally see them tie the knot. They had a very sweet ceremony that was very gospel centered. They wrote beautiful vows to each other that proclaimed how marriage is snapshot of Christ and the church. I didn't really take pics at the ceremony because I wasn't in a great seat for taking pictures but here is a little glance at the day.
The excitement on their faces all day was so sweet!
One of my favorite moments of the day was when David and his mom danced to the Twist for their entire mother/son dance...it was hilarious!
Its a little weird that I have friends my age that have a one year old son already, but nevertheless it was great to be able to come to Henry's first birthday. He's got the funniest expressions, so watching him eat his first cupcake was hilarious!
Not everyone from our CP group was able to come but we finally got a picture of those who were able to make it...I love that we naturally arranged ourselves by height
So this past weekend, on Saturday, Will and I decided to go to the Anderson speedway for a demolition derby. It was a lot of fun. We saw dozens of cars crashed and destroyed...not your typical date night but I feel like it is a quintessential cultural event here in the south.
(btw I hope you enjoy all of the background people throughout the pictures)
We enjoyed seeing that not only were both of our current cars represented that night, but they were both painted pink
In the Gauntlet, all the cars ganged up against a steel covered van in an attempt to take it out
Last but not least....the demolition derby
So in a nutshell that was our Saturday...A good date night I would say
We are the Rogers. We have been married since August and are loving it! Will recently graduated with his PhD in Civil Engineering and I am currently an IT assistant by day and a photographer by night.
