Logan and Taylor, The Perfect Pair!

If you know my family well you know that there are 2 things we love very much...each other and a good party! Some of the happiest times in my life have been on the dance floor with my entire family shouting out the words to Brick House. We pretty much find an excuse to celebrate anything and this weekend could not be the exception. In my last post I told you about my little sister getting engaged, it was truly the most romantic proposal and thanks to the wonderful pictures I feel like I was there. (I wish I knew how to put pictures side by side.)

As soon as Taylor told us he would be popping the question in Carmel my sisters and I knew we had to welcome her home in a big way. We missed her so much over the last 2 months and were so excited to see her as an engaged lady. We started planning a welcome home/engagement party for her with the theme being "The Perfect Pair." It was so fun to brainstorm ways to incorporate our theme and we had a fun time keeping one last secret from the bride-to-be. On Saturday Connor, Chloe, I got up early to make the short drive to Fort Worth. It was a little tricky coming up with a reason why we were not waiting at terminal D for Logan to arrive at 5:30 on Friday night, like we were last time. Poor Sam, I used his love for golf as an excuse which DID NOT sit well with Logan. As she had breakfast with Taylor she cried to him and stated "I have been gone for 2 months and now I'm engaged and no one cares. Why did Sam have to play golf today???" Boo hoo! Luckily Taylor was smart enough to take her out for some retail therapy, I knew things were looking up for her when I received this text "Taylor just bought all my stuff at Gap, I love this being engaged thing!" What Logan didn't know was that there was a lot going on to make her night perfect! Sam and my dad were headed to Dallas, my mom was flying from Lubbock (she was there for a bible study), and we were prepping for the party.

These cookies were made to look like Logan's rose gold ring...they were mistaken for a chicken leg and a ham.

We ordered Logan this adorable Erin Condren wedding planner and decided that every bride-to-be needs one!

We can't wait for October 2012!
