Blogging is meant to be fun. It’s meant to be an outlet. But, for me it’s hard. I hate writing. I’m not good at it and in typical Tanya fashion, anything I’m not good at, I don’t want to do. But, we often have to do things we just flat don't want to, right? Here is where I admit I should have paid more attention in third grade when Mrs. Warfel was trying to teach me where to put my commas and punctuation. As it stands now, I tend to put a comma where ever I think the reader needs to breath and all other punctuation is optional. I guess this is from all of my years in band and reading music. Yep, my ole French horn playing years apparently weren’t for nothing, folks!

Anyway, this blogging thing as I am told is the way of the business world. It’s no longer about websites, but rather blogs. That’s ok though, as long as you understand I’m an event planner, wife and mother; not a grammar guru, we’ll be good to go.

So, here is the to the blogging world…. Let’s get this party started. : )

What a wonderful way to start off the New Year!

Yesterday I was lucky enough to spend the afternoon with two of my favorite nieces, Heigen and Hallie. First we went to The Boardwalk and rode on the trolley up and down the track. The girls LOVED it!! OK, I must admit it... I enjoyed it as well... Perhaps even more than the girls! We laughed and laughed at everything from how our hair that kept whipping in our to the faces to the looks a baby was making sitting in front of us. The faces that little child was making was hilarious!

After the trolley ride, we found our way directly to Build-A-Bear. My, my, my... The girls were in HEAVEN! Since they had chosen to go and see Alvin and the Chipmunks after our bear stop, they choose an Alvin doll to stuff and dress. Naturally Alvin comes with his normal red "A" dress, but Heigen and Hallie had much grander plans for their dolls. Each of the girls choose purple cheerleader outfits to dress their dolls in later. Oh well, whatever makes them happy and they were so proud of the purple cheerleader outfit. They couldn't wait to get home to show their LSU support to Lee even if it means cross dressing Alvin. Those young ladies are so funny!

After build a bear, we made our way to Cheesecake Bistro for a bite to eat... As you can see in a few of the pictures, the girls were in rare form!!! I can attest, they are more Mac and Cheese than the entire state of Wisconsin and loved every minute of it. They ate so much, they didn't have room for dessert! Now, that says allot! I loved watching them sit there, laughing, singing and telling stories with such joy in their tiny hearts.



After getting a belly full of Mac and Cheese, off to the movies with their new Alvin Doll in tow we went. This was the first time both girls have actually sat through an entire movie... *Sigh* I am so proud!!! Again, more laughing, dancing and singing to the music as Alvin, Simon and Theodore put on a show. It was a cute movie, but I'll tell you, the girls amused me far more than the movie. (No surprise there, they always do)

You know what? I honestly feel yesterday was one of those days I will never forget. January 1, 2010 is a day I will keep in my heart for the rest of my life. What a fabulous way to start off the new year!?!?!

To love, honor and cherish all the day of our lives.......

We were introduced by Dr. Pat Day as,
Mr. & Mrs. Douglas Lee Harville for the first
time on October 17, 2009.

Lee and I honestly feel that friends are an extension of family. We like to say we were married before God and our family. It was important to us, that everyone in attendance know just how much we love and appreciate all they have done for us. From our Parents who wiped our snotty noses as children, to our friends who went along and continue to go along with all of our hair brain ideas, to and let's not forget vendors we hand chose to work with because you saw our vision and wanted to make our day just as special as we did. Lee and I know, it was a powerful combination of "Gods Plan" and you, "our family" that made our day so special and full of meaning.

A Heart Felt and Sincere "Thank-you"

Our wedding was the most magical day we could have asked for. At times, the day seemed surreal. However, thanks to your love and support, it quickly became a day we will never forget. You, our "Family," traveled from near and far to be with us on our special day. We know the flight from Sweden was longer than imaginable. We understand driving from South Louisiana is not pleasant. Believe us, we know the cost of a flight from New York, DC and Chicago is not cheap, not to mention the time away from your families. Your display of self sacrifice and support demonstrate what we knew in our heart of hearts, that we have a gracious and nurturing "family" who love and support us.

For all of this and more we say, "Thank you". Thank you for loving us, but more importantly, thank you for giving of yourselves so openly. Because of your example and God's Grace, we are able to love, honor and cherish one another all the days of our lives.

- Mr. & Mrs. Harville

About Me

My photo
I try to be a good Christian, wife, daughter, aunt, sister and friend, but I am human and I am still learning. By the Grace of God, one day I will be able to add mother to the list. I am thankful who have helped me become who I am today. I remember where I have been, how I got here and know exactly where I am going. I try to say "Please" and "Thank-you" and I firmly believe in paying it forward when I can.
