My sister had her wedding reception which turned out really nice. Thought I would add a few of my favorites.
The bride and groom :)

Me and my cousin Kristina :)
The other big event that occurred was in Texas! Rocky was inducted into the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame as Head Founder of the Year for his system of Shin-Gahn-Do. Too bad we had to rush back to work :( It was beautiful :) So here are a few pics from this event to!
This is me and my husband at the banquet

It was neat meeting these and so many more martial artists. I even got to meet some of Rocky's students from when he lived in California! But this guy, Bill right above, is 67 years old and can still kick you in the head before you see it coming! And that is with two hip replacements and a bad left knee! And if you don't know, Frank Dux is the guy they made the movie BloodSport about.
And then on the Surrogacy side, we sadly had our journey we were on end due to personal reasons beyond the control of the Intended Parents. But I still had a very nice Skype session just last weekend with Mark.
I have now been matched with a new couple who are also wonderful. I can tell they will be fun to work with. It is a gay couple from Sweden! Which is kind of ironic because my husband's son's wife is from Sweden! Anyway, they are super sincere and ready to try for twins. Twins! That's going to be a new experience for me! You can tell they have really wanted this for a long time but have also thought this through completely. I just love their open-mindedness and they seem so easy going and comfortable. They will be wonderful parents and I can't wait to help them reach this dream that will complete their lives together. I already have a screening date! That's about three weeks away :) Will keep you posted from time to time!
