Name:  Laura

FI/DH/LW/SO name:  Todd

Where do you live:  Kentucky

Location of wedding:  Kentucky (more specifically, Camp Loucon, a church camp)

Wedding date:  6/12/2010

Wedding colors (extra credit for pictures/inspiration!):  Earth tones: green, brown, and white

Favorite thing about wedding planning:  I love to plan a party! Plus, I spent a lot of time on PW and made some great friendships while planning my wedding.

Favorite thing about PW:  The people, without a doubt. PW just naturally attracts some of the best people, I think! I love my PW sisters/friends!

Astrological sign:  Scorpio....but I truly believe I was meant to be a Libra (and I only missed it by a few days)

Righty/lefty/ambi:  Righty....I'm completely useless trying to write with my left hand!

Where were you born?  Owensboro, KY

What color are your eyes?  brown

Are you a tidy person?  I wish!  No really, I really wish I was. Unfortunately, it's a losing battle for me. Maybe someday. *sigh*

Do you like sports?  Nope. I'm completely uninterested in sports. 

What is your favorite TV Show?  I have several. Most recently, I watched seasons 1 & 2 of Once Upon A Time, and LOVED it. Now I need to catch up with season 3 before season 4 starts!

What is your hobby?  I don't do it very often anymore, but cake decorating. You can see a whole section in my blog of cakes I've made.

How many kids do you have/want?  I have one. He's 17 and just graduated high school. I wanted more when I remarried 4 years ago, but the closer I've gotten to the independence of being an empty nester, the more I've decided I don't think more kids are in the cards for me.

Any pets:  Not anymore. I used to have a sweet dog named Abby. But I learned I was allergic to dogs while I had her, so after she passed, I decided to not get anymore dogs. Maybe someday we'll get a cat, though.

Coffee/Tea person:  Hot, I like coffee (a medium roast with sugar and Italian Sweet Cream creamer). Cold/iced, I like sweet tea. 

Favorite drink – non alcoholic:  I love Coke. And fresh squeezed lemonade. You just can't beat that IMO.

Favorite drink - Alcoholic:  Mango margarita. 

Favorite food:  So many favorites. Steak, sushi, pizza, ice cream....sometimes even some healthy stuff like fruits and veggies. LOL

This is us on our honeymoon...

Have you ever met another PWer in person? If so, share pics!

I have! I've been lucky enough to meet two PW friends in person so far, and I have plans to get together with others in the future!

This is when I met my good friend jenndover at Thirty-One National Conference 2 years ago. We're going again in a couple of weeks and I can't wait to see her again!

I also met one more PW friend, Amanda2010. I had the honor of attending her wedding. I love the PW love!!!

I am so excited photo 2859027-1
