A Dear Friend

Happy Pink Saturday My Sweet Friends!

I want to thank all of you sweet ladies for all of your congratulations and well wishes on my recent engagement. James and I are very happy and very excited. The initial plan was to marry this September but after thinking about things we have much to do before we will be ready to get married so we have postponed the wedding. James has two little girls we must think about and he lives in another town which means he will have to find a job in my town and sell his house. We are hoping to get these things taken care of and save some money before we tie the knot. No matter how long it takes it is worth it to put in the time and effort to plan things out and do them the right way because we love one another so much and we know our love will withstand any amount of time.

I hope you don't mind if I share some purple for Pink Saturday. I have a dear friend named Gina Jones and she has been my dental hygenist and my friend for 10 years. I recently found out (at my last dental checkup) that Gina moved to Houston to be near her family and MD Anderson because she has been diagnosed with sarcoma. I am feeling a lot of sadness for her and her family. She just recently got married and had her first beautiful baby girl named Mallory. Now she is sick and she is struggling. The dental office has a box they ship to her each week or so and if patients want to bring cards and gifts in they will mail it to her. I made this tag that Gina can use as a bookmark to reminder her that she can get through these tough times.

I made this sweet match box and covered it with music paper. I added lace and ribbon and flowers to the top.

I added a picture of a pretty fairy to the top and put glitter on her wings.

Then I filled the match box with inspirational items that I thought might make her smile.

I hope Gina enjoys her lovely match box filled with treasures. I know it won't make things better but maybe it will warm her heart to know that someone back in Oklahoma is thinking about her and praying for her. I hope you will also pray that God will heal Gina's body and take the cancer away so she can be there to watch baby Mallory grow up in to a beautiful young lady.

I want to thank Beverly for hosting us again for another Pink Saturday celebration. Thank you to all of you sweet ladies for your support and friendship. I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the other pink posts.

Blessings to you!

Love Tammy

Big News!

Happy Pink Saturday my Sweet Friends!

Ok, I just can't stand it any longer. I have to tell you my big news! After two years of dating James finally proposed and I'M ENGAGED!!! So now we are planning a wedding! I am so happy and so very excited. James had a wonderful weekend planned out for us to make his big proposal. He was going to take me to a beautiful bed and breakfast in Oklahoma City and he arranged for a special dinner to be prepared just for me at the B&B. He said he was going to proposed to me in his sailboat on the water as the sun was setting and then take me back to the B&B for that special dinner he had arranged. I missed out on all of it (I'm getting teary-eyed) because I got sick the night before we were supposed to leave. So I recuperated in my bed alone that night and he came over the next day to be with me and one of my favorite songs was playing on the radio. It is the song called "Marry Me" by the group Train and he got down on one knee in my living room and pulled out a beautiful ring from his pocket. He told me he loved me and asked me to marry him. It was a very tender and intimate moment. I was not expecting it and he was very nervous. I said "yes" and he put the ring on my finger and we embraced. i can't wait to show you the pictures of the beautiful ring he designed just for me. He worked with a jeweler for six months to get it right! It is one of a kind and very unique, just like my sweet James.
So now I have wedding on the brain! I've been looking at tons of pictures of all things wedding. I know I want to do pink and ivory, so how about a dress like this?

Or what do you think of this one? It's a bit much for me but I love the color!!!

And maybe a cake like this? It's covered in edible pink glitter! Really!

Or maybe this one instead. This definitely looks more like my style. Aren't these roses to die for! They are absolutely stunning!!!

And I love these shabby cabbage roses for decorations. So pretty!

Here are a few beautiful pink wedding buffets. They have such great ideas!

This bridal bouquet is just gorgeous and I hope I can have one just like it. I like the darker pinky mauve roses because the wedding will be in September so a lighter pink might not be appropriate.

If any of you ladies know of great blogs or websites where I can get some great ideas on pink weddings I would love the help! I hope you have a great weekend! I am spending the day with my sweet mom making homemade wedding invitations while enjoying on some hot tea, strawberry muffins, and relaxing music. Thank you to Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday again this week. I hope you enjoy all of the great pink posts there.

Blessings to you!

Love Tammy
