    Hi to all!! My name is Dana and my future hubby's name is Blaine hence the Blana!! We just got engaged this past Sunday and are soo excited to finally start planning the destination wedding we always talked about. We have a pretty interesting story...We met back in the early 80s when we were merely 5 years old through the military and our parents who were best friends. After a year or so we moved apart from each other b/c well thats what the military does and then 18 years later my dad and I were searching for people online and up pops Blaine in the same city as us. We stayed in touch became friends then slowly started dating...fast forward 2 and a 1/2 years and we just bought our 1st condo in the heart of downtown Dallas and have a beautiful daughter who will be 2 in August. So, it comes as no surprise that we should get married and obviously we aren't very conventional therefore Destination Wedding it is. Now if only I could narrow it down to 1 location!!

                  Hey Me and Mine are military babys too

                  We where in high school togeher because our dads where both stationed in the same place for some time, but the twist with us is we both joined the military and found each other about 6 years later on Facebook and after one visit we knew we found our other half low and behold 5 months later we where engaged and though we have had a long engagment in 4 months we will finaly be together forever or together threw deployments hahahaha
