and thats the way they became the brady bunch.

This is Tamara and Steve.

They met, and fell in love, got engaged and eventually got married in March 06.

Steve asked his cousin Craig to be his best man

Tamara asked her cousin Corrine to be her maid of honor

And by the law of all things wedding, this meant that they were partnered up

So both Craig and Corrine are single. And had a lot in common. Similar ages, mutual friends (or relatives as the case may be), both single parents...

So they copped alot of flak at the reception tho the consensus at the end of the night, from both parties was "he/she is nice, but im not really interested"

Um ok. We think not, but we will let it go. For tonight anyway.

Skip forward a few weeks to a backyard bbq at Steve and Tamaras place. Guess who happened to be invited? Corrine? Craig? funny that! But no no, we swear, no match making is going on. (insert evil laugh here! wahahahahaha!)

So their at the same place, at the same time. Nothing exciting happening. Another round of "He/she is nice, but im not interested"

The matchmakers (*cough, cough*, did i say matchmakers? i mean caring, loving friends) are less than impressed with this. It makes for one boring bbq

This is Kate

Kate is, well um, how do i say this without being mean......forward, straight to the point, doesnt beat around the bush, impatient and bossy. lol. yep that pretty much sums it up. (and dont get stroppy with me kate because you know its true)

Kate was not interested in the "He/she is nice but im not really interested" game, and decided to take matters into her own hands, giving Craig Corrines phone number and saying something along the lines of "for god sake, would you call her?"

And he did. I guess he was sick of the "he/she is nice but im not really interested" game as well.

Fast forward and year or two to present day

We spent most of Saturday at Craig and Corrine's engagement party. They are getting married in November, and will have their own lil mini brady bunch with Craigs daughter Tilly and Corrines son Jaimen.

Then when you add in Tamara and Steve and their lil bub who are now all related from all sides.....

Their family tree is about to get complicated.
