Out With the Old

Soon my long-lived nickname of Ceeburt, Burt, Burthole, Carrie Burp, etc. will be gone forever and I will be known as the second Carrie Ann O'Connor. This will also be the second time I've been referred to as Carrie #2. Corey's sister is also named Carrie Ann O'Connor. I never get a break with the whole name thing.
Corey and I are getting married on July 4th in Columbia, MD and thought this blog could serve as a wedding/what we're up to blog. So far the wedding is going to be like this:

Starts at 5
We get married
We eat a feast of BBQ pig and chicken from Beefalo Bob's
We drink whatever your preference is
We cut the wedding pie
We dance
We watch fireworks
We go home

Sounds like so much fun, huh? Honestly I never wanted to have a wedding that people attended, but Corey talked me into it and it's pretty exciting. I'm mainly just excited that I'm going to get to see a lot of family and friends and I'm also excited to have a really cool 4th of July this year!
I want to walk down the aisle to something besides the normal song (I don't even know what it's called) so if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear 'em. I did read that someone is going to walk to an instrumental Coldplay song... something along those lines.
Here is a visual timeline of mine and Corey's history (I guess it wanted to load the pictures from most recent to oldest). We laughed, we cried, we showed the world our butts. We're a self-proclaimed classy couple who aspires for greatness. Meaning we want a shot glass from every cool place we've ever been and hope to one day multiply and replenish the earth with 2 small people who will be lucky enough to call us Corey and Carrie.

Cute Pics!!! Your wedding sounds like it will be awesome! Done Carrie-Burt Style.

Either "Like a Prayer" (I could blast it from my car to make it even more special) or "I Touch Myself"

Both equally romantic.

Oh, and btw, I'm so glad you're marrying Corey and not that other guy you dated. Translation: EVERY guy you ever dated. :) I'm glad you guys can have fun together, and that he is not too mature to use his butt as a way of expressing himeself. I love you CB!

Love the site! I vote for the Elvis version of "Can't Help Falling in Love" and hope that someday the 2 small people will come to call you Mama & Daddy (aka Agent 99 and Get Smart!)

That sounds like a fun wedding. Especially the part about the pig.

Hey Carrie. It's Heidi Furness - your roommate from a LONG time ago at Ricks College! Anyway, I found your blog and would love to get back in touch and see what is up! It's been a while - I think 4-5 years since we last were in touch. I'd love to add you on facebook or make sure it's cool I'm not just stalking you and checking out your blog! Anyway, my email is I'm still single and recently moved home in September from Hawaii. Hit me up sometime!

much aloha, Heidi
