The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

The Benke Wedding

Yesterday I was invited to my good friend Dawn's wedding. I met Dawn in the 7th grade and we instantly became friends. Throughout Jr High we were glued to each other... we were known as one name "Michelle&Dawn" or "Dawn&Michelle". But we went to different High Schools and soon lost touch.

I've always had a lot of friends... but never many Best Friends... and Dawn was one of my Best Friends growing up. Besides her I've only had one other friend that I could call my Best Friend... and she still is to this day. I am thankful that I can keep long lasting friendships such as these. And even though I've only seen Dawn a handful of times since Jr High... we've kept in touch through myspace and it seems like we've never stopped being friends even though our lives have taken such different roads. We both wanted to be teachers... and Dawn is doing just that! I am so proud of her!

Congrats Dawn Marie! Not only is Jacob extremely lucky to have you... but you are just as lucky to have such a sweetheart for a husband! Thank you for letting Junior and I share in your day. You know we're here for both of you guys always.



So the wedding was absolutely gorgeous and the bride was breathtakingly beautiful. To view pictures of all the details CLICK HERE.

Here's some pictures of the Benke Wedding:

First off, quick shout out to my sister Nichole for doing my makeup. Yeah awesome!

Mr. and Mrs. Benke

Yay they're married!!!

Didn't I tell you she's gorgeous?! And her dress was to-die for.

A self portrait of my husband and I by the fountain after the ceremony while the pictures were taking place.



I love this shot... her photographer (the man in brown) was taking some formal shots... and I took this while standing in the back watching

The cake table... AMAZING! I didn't taste it so I can't say if it was good but it looked fabulous sitting on that table.


The bridal party goofing off at the start of dinner

The first dance

The bouquet toss

Towards the end of the night... I finally got a picture with her!

My shoes went off soon after... they killed my feet... I have the war wounds to prove it.

The train... Woot Woot!

And the sparkler send-off!
