Just wanted to introduce DJ & I's family.
DJ- He has 1 sister and 2 brothers.
Nicole(30), Travis(26), DJ(21), and Dylan(19)
This is his beautiful family!
Rest In Peace; James Gregory Busselman
June 11, 1956 - March 16, 2012-We miss you so much!
(This was the night DJ proposed to me)
I have 5 brothers and 1 sister.
Myles(25), Kyle(23), Juliee(21), Bryan(19), Sean(17), Blain(15), and Kaylie(13)
My brother Blain is adopted. He has a sister, Raylean. She is my sister at heart. When my parents took Blain in and adopted him Raylean decided to go stay with her grandma. She is still considered family.
This is my beautiful family. This picture was taken December 2010. (When I find 2011 I will upload it!)
Maid-of-Honor; Morgan. She has been my best friend since 6th grade. She has always been there for me whenever I needed a shoulder to cry on or just someone to stare at! I don't know what I would do with out her in my life. She brightens it everyday by being apart of it!
Bridesmaid; Raylean. I should of made her a MOH as well. She is my sister at heart. Forever and always. We always seem to get in to the most trouble together and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Bridesmaid; Jaclyn. She is one of a kind. We tell each other everything, no matter if its good or bad. If she doesn't like something she isn't afraid to speak her mind, I am the same back with her. We fight like sisters. She is amazing, I love her. (She is also morgans sister)
Bridesmaid; Nicole. DJ's older sister. She is one jazzy, classic, awesome, one of a kind, hippie that I have ever met in my entire life! I love her taste in clothes and everything else she does! I find it a little weird on how much we are alike. And I'm glad to have her as my sister!
Jr. Bridesmaid; Kaylianne. My little baby sister. The youngest born. I love this little girl with all my heart and I would do anything for her. She is one smart cookie and I am soooo proud of her!
They have all officially ordered their dresses!!
I don't want them to have to worry about sinking into the grass so they will be wearing black comfotable converse. :) DJ has all his groomsmen picked out, I just think that he's still debating about it cause he doesn't seem to be in a hurry to ask so i'm not going to rush him either. They will be in a full grayish suit, and his groomsmen will be in a dark gray suit but with just the vest (with green ties), and not the jacket because we live in Texas, it's the hottest and I don't want them to sweat more than what they are going to be. They will be simpular to this:
DJ & I decided that we want to have an outside wedding. It'll be at The Phoenix in Weimar, Texas. It's what we both have dreamed of! The best part about it is that the ceremony and reception will all be held there. Which is definitely GREAT! Our wedding colors are purple and green with peacock feathers.(our favorite colors). :D
The Phoenix - Perfect little venue with great ceremony sites to choose from and a great reception hall! :)
This is a mockup of what my centerpieces will look like. I won't be using white sand in the vases. I will probably get the gel balls with LED lights in them! :)
I am getting super excited as it gets closer to the wedding! Everything is coming along together just the way I want it to! YAY! Who knew it would be so much fun to planning something that is one of the most stressful things ever! Hahaha! *Will keep updating soon*

Me; Julianne Michelle. November 23 is my birthday, I'm 21 years old. I have 5 brothers and 2 sisters. My family means everything to me and I wouldn't trade them for anything! I love DIY projects and also using my imagination to create my own! I absolutely love planning and I finally get to plan my own wedding! I'm super excited and I can't wait to marry my best friend this summer! Oh, and I love cupcakes!
My fiancé; Donald James, he goes by DJ for short. His birthday is November 15. He is just one week and one day older than me. He has 1 sister and 2 brothers. He LOVES working on motors, going hunting, and riding dirtbikes.(to many to name) Right now he is currently working at my parents family business drilling water wells.
This is how we met; We both live in the same small town. We've known each other for years, we were in the same grade. I've liked him ever since 8th grade, I actually told his friend to hook us up. Then the next day started dating this girl. So I moved on.
Well, time went on and its the end of my sophomore year of high school. I just got out of a relationship with the friend I was trying to hook me and DJ up. Weird I know. (they weren't friends anymore in high school). Well I started hanging out with my sister by heart, Raylean. She's been dating JT for about a year at the time. JT is DJ's childhood friend, so therefore, best friend.
The summer of 2007 was one of the best summers of my entire life. With nothing to do in a small town and no jobs we rode around town on bikes, all summer. It was always Amos, Dylan(DJ's brother), Koldin, JT, Raylean, DJ, Bryan(my brother), and myself.
Hanging out with them all summer made me realize how much I really did like DJ. My feelings for him started coming back and little did I know, he was getting feelings for me too.
One day he finally asked Ray for my number. We would talk on the phone like every normal teenager would do. Eventually we started dating on July 22, 2007. Neither of us asked one another to be boyfriend or girlfriend, and we didn't need to, we both knew the chemistry that we felt and we trusted it. Clearly we've been going strong ever since. ;)

Well, DJ asked me to throw a birthday party for my brother, Bryan and his brother, Dylan. (their birthdays were at the end of august) That way both of our families would be there. Raylean's birthday was the next day so why not have a party for her as well. I invited family and all of our close friends.
The party started about five/six o'clock. We ate some delicious BBQ that DJ's parents made. After everyone had ate it was time for cake. We sang happy birthday to the birthday kids and when the song was over...
DJ turned all the attention on us. He thanked everyone for coming and then turns to me, got down on one knee, and popped the question. By this time my heart was shaking and I was sooo nervous I felt like I couldn't even move. But of course my excitement jumped out of me and I said; "YES!" :)
There is nothing I would change about that day, it was perfect and he's perfect. I still get butterflies just thinking about it! <3
