My mom hosted a "Meet the Mr." Engagement Porch Party for me and Chris this weekend...and it was BEAUTIFUL!
It was an unconventional engagement party since Chris was the only man but we basically had our regular porch party ladies and added him...the guest of honor!
Our porch party ladies have prayed for and with me for many years and recognize what an answer to prayer Chris is. I've started calling them Team Chris but now they want team t-shirts!
Moma had the porch looking so enchanting with white puffs and plenty of B's...for my new last name!
Moma asked Jennifer to monogram Mr. & Mrs. aprons and displayed those with pictures from our courtship.
Be assured the cooks will be kissed!
Moma out-did herself with so many special touches...
See this happy man??? I get to marry him!!!!
The ladies brought homemade ice cream in Chris' favorite flavors- key lime, banana pudding, mint Oreo and chocolate! So yummy!!!
Our sweet friends enjoyed meeting Chris for the first time! Moma actually created a game where the ladies had to answer questions about Chris and our courtship...such fun!
Moma also had each lady tell Chris something about me he should know (he didn't run screaming!)...Rhega wrote how marriage is like a five-course meal and shared that with us (so creative!)...and we wrapped up with a Mad-Lib version of our love story, courtesy of Moma (hilarious)!
Chris and I adored our engagement party! The night was amazing and more than I ever imagined, a common theme in my life these days! We sure love our Moma!
