YV Holiday Party

Last weekend Craig and I attended a Christmas party with my coworkers. It was a lot of fun... there's nothing quite like watching your coworkers make fools of themselves.


A marshmallow race--Trying to pass marshmallows with plastic spoons
in our mouths... My team totally lost this one. Christmas cherrades... can anyone guess what Cari is?!?

THE TIME HAS COME...

THE MOMENT YOU'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR...



THE MOMENT ALMOST SEVEN YEARS IN THE MAKING...



CRAIG AND I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE...



WE'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!

Yes, you heard me right... Craig finally decided to man-up and get down on one knee! He fixed me dinner at his house (nothing out of the ordinary). He prepared an amazing Szechuan stir fry. After dinner he pulled out a giant fortune cookie. Inside the cookie was the ring! Needless to say I was very surprised. We haven't really worked out many details yet. We'll keep you all posted!



P.S. We thought you all might get a kick out of the sound effects... you can thank Craig for that!

Tis the Season!

Craig and I decided to kick off our Christmas season by visiting the house and grounds of Allandale Mansion (Kingsport's "White House"). This estate was once a 500 acre farm that raised championship Black Angus cows and Tennessee Walking horses. The tour featured a dozen beautifully decorated Christmas trees, an antique toy collection, and cookies and wassail!

Following our tour of Allandale Mansion, Craig and I went to Fall Branch Christmas Tree Farm to try to find the perfect tree. We had a lot of fun and ended up taking home a leyland cypress!

Once we got the tree home it was time for the fun part! It's amazing how much a Christmas tree can make a place feel like home!
