Wrapping up January

It amazes me how quickly time flies. January seems like it just started and now it is already February.  It has truly been a great month. We brought in the New Year in Toxey, celebrated Adam's birthday, got a month closer to the BIG day,  my friend/roommate, Kylie got engaged,  and we started our first endeavor in the ministry. God is good.

The biggest thing that has happened in our lives this month,like I said earlier, is Adam getting a new job. He is now the Children's Associate at our church (Dauphin Way Baptist). We are kicking off a Children's Worship service March the 18th and are so excited. I am so blessed to be apart of this new ministry. We both have a heart for children and a passion to see them learn and grow closer to our Lord. DWBC is also a special place for us as a couple. Dauphin Way is the place where Adam and I met for the first time and is the church we will become husband and wife in. I think I speak for Adam when I say he is so honored to start his ministry in that church.

Pray for Adam as he starts this new
journey and pray for me that I will be what I need to be for him!

We are excited about being a month closer to May. I am quickly filling up weekends with showers and wedding planning details. This stage in the engagement is a blast. I am past the point of major decision planning and on to the detail part. My mom has been amazing through it all, I definitely could not be doing it without her!

Last Saturday my sweet friend/roommate Kylie got engaged. I can't wait for her wedding day as well. This summer is going to be full of fun weddings. (I will also be Mrs. Adam Tait at her wedding and that makes my heart so happy!) 420 is overloaded with wedding magazines, books and planning!

Let the count down begin...

I know I promised in more than one blog post that I wouldn't count down the days until our wedding but I just can't help myself!

I am absolutely ecstatic about marrying Adam Tait!!

With that being said..

There are 130 days until the wedding or you could say a little over 4 months.

Either way I am beyond excited and can't wait for our wedding day!!

Happy Birthday Adam Tait

We celebrated Adam's birthday yesterday! We spent the day in true Adam and Maggie fashion. We love just riding around, going in different stores and doing anything downtown Mobile has to offer.

It was so nice to spend the day with Adam.

We started the day by heading to one of your favorite spots downtown, Hopjacks! We love the fries! If you have a chance you must go.

(side note: never order two, one is definitely big enough to share)

After sharing some fries and bacon artichoke dip (another one of our favorites) we went browsing around downtown! 

We ran up on this little place. We quickly fell in love. It has some of the best antiques we have found and the prices were great! Adam scored a few things for his "soon to be" study/office and I got a few things for the house. 
If you are wondering where it is located, it is across from the Saenger Theatre on the corner! 

We spent the rest of the afternoon piddling around. We went to a few of our other favorite spots in Mobile: Antiques at the Loop, AO, Metzger's (we had to confirm ties and suits for the wedding), and Stein Mart. Adam got a new messenger bag at Alabama Outdoors for his birthday! 

The big birthday celebration ended with dinner at the Hungry Owl with our good friends Jerry and Jessica Tims. It is never a dull moment when the four of us get together!

Happy Birthday Jonathan Adam Tait. You are loved and I can not wait to celebrate many more birthdays!
