oooo, i promise that wherever you may go, wherever life may lead you, with all my heart i'll be there too. and from this moment on i want you to know, i'll let nothing come between us, and i will love the ones you love. so gone are all my questions about why...
oh i wonder what god was thinking when he created you, i wonder if he knew everything i would need, because he made all my dreams come true. when god made you, he must've been thinking about me.
he made the sun, he made the moon, to harmonize a perfect tune. one can't do without the other they just have to be together. and that is how i know it's true. you're for me and i'm for you, and my world just can't be right without you in my life.

today is our 6th wedding anniversary... hard to believe it's been that long. i don't have our wedding photos on the computer, so this pic is a scanned pic of a scanned pic. not too clear but you get the point! i ran across this article the other day that the bham news wrote up about me and nate, in the life/style section, they have a feature each sunday called "our wedding." here is the article.
in the beginning: jamie and nathan met at a bible study at cedar grove baptist church in leeds in july 2001. they were visiting the church with friends, who introduced them. "she was kind of seeing another guy so i was thinking i wish i could date her and she'd get rid of the other guy." nathan recalls. "i had to do my fair share of waiting."
first date: the two went to nathan's cousin's piano recital at samford university, then sat down to dinner at applebee's at colonial brookwood village with his family. during dinner, jamie accidentally spilled marinara sauce on nathan's jeans and brand new white sneakers. jamie admits she was nervous. "it was so embarrassing," she recalled. "but he forgave me and still asked me out again." the marinara sauce came out of nathan's jeans ok, but there were still little red remnants left on his shoes for a while.
first kiss: after a visit at nathan's house, jamie said goodbye and gave him a hug. he jokingly asked "where's my kiss?" jamie surprised him with a smooch.
will you: nathan proposed to jamie at a third day concert. third day, a christian rock band, was performing at jacksonville state university. he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. after she said yes, he went up on stage and sang "love song." nathan, a singer and guitarist on the praise team at argo christian fellowship church, was one of two random people picked out of the crowd to sing.
location, location, location: the whitt's married at springville first baptist church. they received guests there as well.
something old: a 1905 buffalo nickel in jamie's shoe
something new: her beaded halter-style gown and sparkly veil made by her grandmother
something borrowed: a coral cross necklace she borrowed from a bridesmaid
something blue: a handkerchief with her new initials from her mother-in-law. she wrapped it around her bouquet.
oops: nathan forgot black socks to wear with his tux. his brother had to buy him some at a nearby hardware store. "i was so concerned about making sure i had the ring i guess i forgot my socks," nathan says.
floral encore: four year old flower girl hadley bratton apparently didn't want to skimp on her duties. she threw her daisies as the bridal party exited the sanctuary as well as when the entered.
most popular gifts: they got four target photo albums and duplicate pieces of cookware.
favorite gifts: a quilt from jamie's mom. "because it was made from the heart with love," she said.
pedigree: jamie's parents are beth and tom phillips of argo. nathan's parents are john and terri whitt of moody.
honeymoon: the spent five days on mexico's mayan riveria. they snorkled, hung out by the pool and played volleyball.
happily ever after: jamie, 22, works in customer service at southtrust bank. nathan, 22, is a general contractor with TAC construction in trussville. the newlyweds live in moody. nathan's brother josh is married to jamie's sister shannon. "we all met each other around the same time. they took things a little quicker than we did," jamie said with a giggle.

and i took these pics yesterday. i love how they both looks so happy to be sharing a room! :)
i'm sure we are not the only ones to live in a house a little smaller than what we would like. although most of you have probably graduated out of those smaller homes, i would love to hear your stories of how you had too many kids and not enough space. :) and also, how no matter what, god always provides! and for that, i am so grateful!

saturday morning we slept LATE, 8:30 for me and lucas, and 9:15 for nate and trace! it was GLORIOUS!!! then i headed to shannon's with the kids... where we met ra and her kids and all the cousins had a blast on the huge waterslide! we stayed for a few hours and played so hard. we wore those kids out! this is one of my favs from the day. all six, in order... caden, kenley, trace, lala, lucas, and mason. ages 4, 3, 3, 2, 1, and 1. wow.
josh took most of these pics, i edited them some. this one below is one of my favs too!!!!
loni and i have been bff forever! seriously... since like 2nd grade. we were very close growing up and all through school then in high school she changed schools. but we still remained bf. since then, she has lived in springville, montevallo, mississippi, columbiana, and now she's moving to hawaii. but i know we will still be as close then as we are now. we have always kept in touch and been there for each other no matter what. good times and bad times. fat times and skinny times. ha! :) i really am happy for her and jake and i know that they will be just as successful over on the island as they are here. for now, i will gloat and hold it over her that i have a better tan than she does! ha. hey, what are best friends for, right? ~aloha my friend! ~
later monday nite... nate and i went to a friend's house and watched the bachelorette... i love that show! and nate said he wasn't gonna watch it, but he started watching when all the drama got going (which is pretty much the 2nd show. ha!) and now he loves it as much as i do! we had fun with friends and will def have another get together for the big finale in a few weeks! yes i know, it's trash tv. and i'm pretty sure 90% if not all of it is staged. but can i just say i hope ali finds love and happiness in the end? she deserves that, i think! team roberto baby! :)
ok so i think that covers our long weekend. whew, did anyone hang in there til the end? if you did, just leave me a comment with your bank account info and i'll
borrow wire a dollar. bahaha. just kidding. but a comment would be nice every now and then. or you could just continue to stalk my blog. whatever you like! :)
