Yesterday was an amazing day.
One of my best friends Lauren was in town to meet Tom
so i decided to take them both out to Fort Worth and show them the sights.

We saw the Water Gardens and the Stockyards.
I mean the much more Texan/Cowboy can you get??

We also ate at our local Food Truck Park.
And i'd be lying if i said i didn't get some serious butterflies
when the lady we ordered our food from called out
Tom and Emily when she was ready for us to grab our order.

Tom and Emily
girly siggghhhh :) :) :)

My Parents have been working SO HARD putting our
backyard together for this summer.

It's probably the coolest backyard ever...
Like EVER!!

We put down new grass, and made a little patio.
Then we put a patio set out there.
AND THEN we strung lights from the trees
which is sooo magical!!!

My mom also came up with the idea of a backyard movie screen.
So my dad brought it to life for her.
And we used it for the first time last night and it was awesome.
We watched the Lion King of course ;)

Last night was the BBQ, and all of my family came to see the house and meet Tom.
It was probably a bit nerve-racking at the time having to meet my entire family.
But Tom did so well, everyone loved him and everyone was so sweet!
It was really the perfect way to end his first weekend here.

I am beyond excited.

Tom and I have only grown closer in the past three days and i'm 
just the luckiest girl in the world!!!
He's everything i imagined!!! :)

Hope y'all have a great Sunday!!

  3. Emily, I'm so happy for you! Tom is a very nice young man & I enjoyed meeting him. Y'all have a great time in California & be safe!

    1. Aww thank you so much Aunt Julie!! You're so sweet!!!! Love you so much :)

  4. Ugh I'm swooning!! You guys are adorable and I'm so excited that everything is as perfect as you had hoped! :)

    Serious it as cool for a British guy to have an American girlfriend as it is for an American girl to have a British boyfriend? Just curious. ;)

    Happy travels!! Hope you guys have a ball!

    1. Haha thanks girl, it really is beyond perfect in every way :)

      Haha I asked him and he said he thinks it's more of a dream for girls, but he's also pretty happy about it ;)

      Thanks girl :)

  5. Emily, I too have an obsession with England! When I stumbled across your blog, I realized that we have so much in common! I have been a faithful follower of your blog ever since January and your life is practically my dream! Thank you so much for documenting it all here. I have been counting down the days along with you and almost cried with happiness when he arrived for you! :D
