Tara & Brian's wedding


Chris's cousin, Brian was sealed to his lovely bride, Tara today in the Bountiful Temple. We had to leave Ava behind, which I wasn't all too excited about, but she had a great day with Audrey. The sealer was a very cute man, that somewhat resembled Yoda. He gave some advice to the couple. 1. Continue to do the things for one another, that had caused the other to fall in love. and to continue to seek for things that would cause your spouse to fall more in love with you. 2. Stay righteous. He promised that if they sought to do those 2 things, that they would have a happy marriage. He also advised that Tara work on Tara and Brian work on Brian...and not to work on each other. And to work hard enough on perfecting yourself, that your spouse can notice your efforts. It was a GORGEOUS day for a wedding. Fair breeze, and under 90 degrees! Yeay!!!
They held a lunch after the sealing at a beautiful Manor in Bountiful. Chris and I had to duck out early to relieve Audrey. Ava was so sad to see her go. We all took naps and about 5 got ready to head to the reception out to the Godfrey Home. It was so lovely. Perfect cool temperature, and the most beautiful lighting. I forgot to charge my camera battery, so I didn't get many pictures from the party. Tara was the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. I wish I had the talent to sketch and paint, because the expression of her face, and the beauty emulating from her, as the sealer recited their covenants, is something I wish everyone could see. I can't even explain it. Here are some pictures of our kids at the temple and party tonight. I didn't get many good ones of the bride and groom, so as people post I'll snatch a few and add them to our bloggity blog. I'm very excited to announce that I was able to wear my "goal dress." I found this awesome dress at Khols a few weeks ago...maybe 5 weeks ago? It was like a bazillion % off on clearance and went from $89 to $8. So I bought it, and realized it was needing me to lose quiiiiiiiiiiite a bit of belly/hip weight. I've worked hard to avoid my sweets and to be more active...and it was so worth it, because I love this dress!!! As I get further in my progress of shedding pregnancy weight...the dress will only get more and more awesome!
