No slideshow...just pics.

Well, it looks like I can't figure out how to convert the dvd to a file that can be uploaded here, so I decided just to put a few baby pics of me and David (couple with our siblings) up. There's three sections to the slide show: family, friends and us. The baby pics of us individually are in the "us" section; with (obviously) family pictures in the "family" part; and lots of old high school and college pics in the "friends" part...I need to add more of David's friends too cause right now, it's the "Kelsey and all her friends" show... :)

I love looking at old pictures cause I really can't believe that I'm going to be 30 soon and all this time has passed...I remember taking some of these pictures...how can I be this old??

New Initiates...and a slideshow.


Well, the Phi Mus had initiation this past Saturday and initiated 47 new members! The chapter is doing great, and despite what's going on with Theta and hazing and the possibility of losing their charter, Phi Mu is pretty much kicking ass at the moment...so be proud, alumnae!

So I'm working on a slide show for the wedding reception...I picked up some baby pictures of David this weekend from his mom, and once I scan those in, I'll be putting the whole thing together. Gotta admit though, the ratio of my baby pics to his...like 300:1...I'm gonna fix that so it's much more proportioned, I promise!

So as soon as I get it figured out, should I go ahead and upload it here or do you want to wait and see it at the reception?

HC '08

Thought I should give everyone a Homecoming '08 update...the Phi Mu house paired with Sigma Chi this year, and with a general theme of "Generation Cowboy", they did a yearbook house dec...and placed third! So for the the 4th time in 5 years, Phi Mu has placed in Homecoming! Quite a record since two of those times were first places! So here's a few pics of it, and the first one is the seniors during All Night Pomp on Thursday night before homecoming and freakin' Mike Gundy stopped by...!!

Abby and Lilly

So Jenny sent me these pictures of my cousins Abby and Lilly and I just couldn't help it, I had to put one of them up. Abby (the oldest, and my junior bridesmaid) is growing up so beautifully, I can hardly stand it. And Lilly, the little troublemaker, well...is just that!

But I love this picture of them together. Abby, since the day she was born, has been my little sidekick, which makes it absolutely necessary for her to be a part of my wedding.



Her 13th birthday will actually be the day after the wedding, so I'm thinking of surprising her with a birthday cake at the reception (hey, turning 13 is a BIG deal!) and having everyone sing to her...I'm sure she'll pretend to be embarrassed, but she's a Johnston...and we like to be the center of attention :)

Flower Girl Dress...and Centerpieces!



Well, I think I've pretty much decided on this dress for the flower girls...just need to see if I can find the pattern or if the lady making them can do it just by looking at the picture (is that even possible??) But I like this one the best, so hopefully, I can have it made or find something really really similar...!



And then these are the centerpieces Jenny and I decided on. She's putting something else in them to line the vases, but I can't remember what it was...oh well. And she's not putting anything in the vases other than the water, white orchid and pink LED light. I LOVE it, and now we're on the look out for these square vases!

STDs...ha ha...Save the Dates...!



Here's our Save the Date cards! I made these a while back when I saw that someone had used their dog in a picture, and I thought, well, I'll just use the kitties! It's Tatumbell on the left, and Allie on the right. It took probably an entire afternoon trying to get them to sit still long enough to take a decent picture (if you're on facebook too, those ridiculous pictures are on there) but they both finally did it, and these are the shots that made the final cut. I debated on putting a picture of me and David on them, but thought I'd do something different than the usual, so here it is!

"I do" in Colorado...

So I thought I'd post some pics from David's sister's wedding this last weekend in Cuchara, Colorado. It was absolutely beautiful, and SO much fun. Definitely drank too many beers in high altitude... :)

This is Rhianna, Emily's flower girl (David and Emily's cousin Tara's daughter) and she has graciously agreed to be our flower girl too (she actually said "yes, thank you" when I asked her...she's so stinkin' cute), which I'm grateful for cause my family and friends were kind of hogging the wedding party stuff, so now we can include David's side thankfully!



This is Emily and Clark leaving the reception...


David and his brother, Matt, and their mom with Emily...


Us before the ceremony...


Just one of the amazing views from our cabin...
