August 15th 2006
- We closed on our new house in Cumming
GA!! It is a 2 story (almost) 2500 square foot house in the metro
Atlanta area. Because we agreed that our next move would
be the house we have always wanted together, we decided to make
sure it was optioned out to suit our wants and needs. We
decided to do granite countertops, wrought iron stair cases,
hardwood floors, tile where possible, and lots of trim.
Although our house will be a little bare, we are thrilled about
moving in. Because we have not had this much room before,
filling this house will take some time. We are supposed to
be hosting Christmas this year, so everyone be ready to bring
some Neil Natic approved furniture! For those that are
unfamiliar with this grade of furniture ask around.

- Our tenant moves in! After a
month of nerve- racking searching, we found a renter to move
into our lovely townhouse which we lived in for two years.
It was our first home together and we really enjoyed it but we
realized that we wanted some more space and less stairs.
This brings us one step closer to being able to close on our new
home that we have been dreaming about.
April 8th 2006
- Back to the rents we go! We
found a renter and need to move out to prepare the townhouse for
move in. We have three weeks to get it in tip top shape,
and there is plenty of work to be done.
February 7th 2006 - February 14th 2006
- Our honeymoon to the Atlantis in the
Bahamas! After our amazing wedding we were ready to take
to the skies and head to Atlantis. Needless to say, this
was a completely breathtaking experience. Although it
sounds like a complete paradise, it did not go so smooth the
whole time. We woke up in the morning to head to the
airport, only to find out that the AirTran employee booked our
flight for the wrong day. We argued with more AirTran
employees than I can count all the way to the airport and even
some more when we got to the check in counter. When we got
that all squared away, we flew out to the beautiful
Bahamas...there was only one catch... it was the wrong island!!!
we soon realized that we would need to spend $300 on two round
trip tickets to Nassau as we were in Freeport. As we go
out to our plane, we realize that we were about to board 10
passenger planes that had an open cockpit! Once we landed,
the experience was completely different. We had night
after night amazing and romantic dinners, fabulous breakfasts,
and breathtaking resorts. The Atlantis resort is like
nothing I ever imagined. We got to swim with dolphins,
enjoy the pools and beaches, travel through the thousands and
thousands of gallons of indoor aquariums, and lagoons filled
with sharks and other amazing animals. All the fun had to
come to an end 7 days later. On the way home, the Bohemian
airline lost Neil's luggage. The bag ended up on a ship
in-between two islands in the Bahamas; none of which we visited!
Three days later, we received our bag and were able to laugh
about it. That was a vacation that we will never forget!

February 4th 2006
- We got married! On 02.04.06 we
got married at
Glendalough Manor in the metro Atlanta area. We
decided on this date because we wanted a time of year where we
would not be hot and a date that was memorable (so Neil has no
excuse to forget his anniversary). We found that this fit
both roles and was perfect! Our theme was black and white
attire with bright colored flowers and decorations. We had
around 100 guests in total which worked out well with our
beautiful venue. Our rehearsal dinner was hosted at a
local Italian restaurant called Maggianos. The food was
amazing!! After our rehearsal, we were both a little
nervous because we could not get through our vows without
laughing. Fortunately, we pulled it all together for the
sure to check out the photo gallery for pictures!
December 17th 2005
- Neil graduated college from NGCSU with
a major in Business Management. He was so tired of school
that he was willing to skip his ceremony to just be done with it
all, but was talked into it as it is a lifetime achievement.
Between work and school, it took a toll on him mentally as well
as physically and he is thrilled to have it behind him.
Now Alisha thinks that he will be writing her papers for her,
but she is very wrong. Poor thing.
May 6th 2005
- We got engaged!
As explained by Alisha...About a week in
advance Neil had made plans for us to go out to a nice dinner to
"celebrate school ending for the summer" or so he said. Then on
Friday May 6th while I was at work Neil had my favorite flowers
delivered to me, they were a perfect mixture of Gerber Daisies
and Tulips in a beautiful vase. The card that was attached to
the flowers read "To a fun and exciting night! I love you!" It
was soo sweet and thoughtful.
That night when it was time to leave for dinner, Neil called me
down stairs and when I opened the front door there was a black
stretch limo waiting outside! As I climbed in the limo I
noticed a Coach bag sitting on the seat and our favorite wine
chilling in the ice bucket. Neil sat down next to me and looked
at me with a smile as a mix CD that he had made Just for our
special night began to play. The mood could not have been
Neil handed me the Coach bag and told me to open it, Inside was
a beautiful purse that both Neil and I were in love with when we
saw it in the store. As I looked inside the purse...I saw an
elegant jewelry box but when I opened it, it was empty! I looked
over at Neil with confusion and excitement in my eyes and just
then he got down on one knee in the limo with my gorgeous ring
in hand, and asked me to marry him!! I was speechless!!
With tears in both of our eyes I said "YES" as he put the ring
on my finger. Our ride continued to Capital Grill in Buckhead
which is an amazing restaurant at the top of a high-rise
building with the most amazing view!!
