    This past weekend my Mom and Will's Mom threw us an engagement party at Murphy's Tavern in Charlotte. We had a small buffet of pick-up foods and the karaoke started when we were done eating and mingling. Will's Mom decorated the place with posters of quotes and poems about us. She even sang a poem she wrote, on stage, to the tune of the Beverly Hillbillies theme song. It was hilarious, I hope someone got a video of it!

    Everyone sang and danced the night away and it was great. Here are some photos from that night :)

    I also ordered my dress (I mentioned that in another thread but now I have a picture of me in it) and I fixed my hair for the engagement party and thought it looked pretty good and lasted for quite a while, so I was thinking it might be a good option for the wedding. Take a look :)

            Dress is beautiful. I really like the hair, i've been trying to find a pic of hair similar to that for my wedding. How did you do it? curling iron or curlers?

                Thank you :) My hair is naturally a bit wavy and I have a way of "scrunching" it. I wash it and comb it out then scrunch it to my head to create waves. To make it as curly as that picture, I think took a fairly skinny curling iron and wrapped strands of the hair around the iron (don't curl it the way it is suppose to be used, just wrap around whole iron). And it created a wavy/curly look. I had tried curling it that way on my hair after I straightened it, but it didn't stay, with the already wavy hair, I woke up the next morning with the curls still in tact :) And got lots of comments on how it looked professionally done.

                And as for my FMIL...I am very lucky! She is so wonderful...a bit hyper...but wonderful. She is just thankful to have a girl to spoil, since she has two boys.
