Another one "going to the chapel"

Congratulations FOLEY!!! So very excited for you! Robbie is one lucky man! Love you much!

a little update on me :)

Well, it's been a while since I posted about my life. I have been in nursing school since August and have had absolutley no life! It has been such an adjustment! I must say the last 3 months have been very tough! Not seeing Gray, not seeing ANY family or close friends, not talking to anyone, missing all of my favorite shows, etc, etc. But it will be worth it in the end. I have learned so much in such a short period of time. I have also met some incredible girls! They are SO SUPPORTIVE! Love them already. I passed my final last week and will start clinicals Monday! I am finally feeling "nursey" :)

Bride to be!

Look who's engaged!!! Miss Kaylan Marie Kline! We are so excited for you and sweet Lee! You will make the most beautiful bride!!! LOVE YOU! "Booty shorts alarm!"

Lots of great friends...

Hello all,
There hasn't been too much going on The Williams' household lately. Last week I DID to get to see lots of GREAT friends that I have not gotten to see in a LONG while! Last Wednesday I went to eat with sweet Cheryl, "Lexie Lou" and Kellye from Butler
Snow. It had been WAAAY too long since we had seen each other! We had such a great time! I miss those girls so so much! (CONGRATS on the engagement Kellye! The ring is FABULOUS!) :) Then, Thursday I got to see Sarah Beth! We had a great lunch at Sweet Peppers and did a little shopping at The Rennaisance in Madison. After that I had a "Wal-mart Date" with Mama Leah! haha! And then Saturday we got to see sweet Kim and Charles at Bonefish for Charles' birthday! (and ran into Sally and Wayne Black later that night! Love those two!!)

Last week was a great week! Loved seeing everyone!

***Only 12 more days until I start NURSING SCHOOL!!! Life as I know it is about to change!***

Sad night.....

Well friends, tonight has been a sad night......I had to say goodbye to Jason Castro on American Idol. I must admit....I am obsessed with him. There, I said it. I get "giddy" about watching him every Tuesday and Wednesday night. (I'm pretty sure I was a hippie in a previous life) I think he is absolutely beautiful! THOSE EYES!!!! MMMmmmm, MMMmmmm, MMMmmmm! Jason, if you happen upon this blog, just know....you will always be MY Americal Idol! :)

Happy 2 year Anniversary to us! I can't believe it's already been 2 years since we said "I do"! They have been a wonderful 2 years!

Happy Anniversary, Gray! I look forward to many many more years together! I love you!

Happy New Year!!

We had a kind of low key New Years. We went to eat with the Beidlemans', and the Herrins' and then came back to Joey and Leah's to shoot fireworks. We have spent the last 4 years with Joey, Leah, Will and Lee on New Years and couldn't think of anyone else we would rather be with!! We all have such a good time together!!!

Little Char Herrin

Happy 2008 from the Williams'!
