Georgia Peach

What a weekend! Thank goodness for this weekend, it has been one of my favorites of the year. I always love getting to see my favorite people and just driving through Georgia puts a smile on my face. I left for Georgia on Thursday so that I could go with Joyce to pick up her wedding dress. After months of dress drama, her dress finally arrived. Only not to be all the way finished, what fun. Poor gal. Needless to say, we were at the dress place way longer than we bargained for but it was great to see her and she looked stunning in that unfinished dress haha.

Then mom and I went out to eat for a little birthday celebration, since I was not in town for her actual birthday. Do you know they have a new drink called the strawberry pina colada? I know, it truly does sound like it only exists in Heaven. The next day mom and I rushed around looking for some bridesmaids dresses for Joyce. This was an adventure and I think we found just what she was looking for. Its so exciting to see the wedding coming together! Then, it was off to the airport for me to pick up my p.i.c. Kris had to fly since he had a class on friday. Then, we headed straight to Atlanta to see Erin. Sweet friend had been so excited about my arrival she planned out the whole night. Including having drinks and chips and salsa waiting for us upon our arrival. I am so grateful for Erin. She always makes me laugh hysterically with her crazy stories and she is such a hardworking, reliable person. I am proud of my little chemist! We spent the night laughing, singing, dancing, and having the best time. Literally, I woke up the next morning thinking I had done a full body workout the day before. It was fun meeting up with old friends and seeing people that I had not seen in a while. It so interesting to see where people's lives take them.

Saturday morning we loaded are things back into the car and drove to Tyler and Joyce's house for some more wedding planning. She made us some delicious chicken fingers and macaroni. My kind of meal. Then, it was on to Dahlonega to celebrate Hannah and Elliot's wedding. Wow! It is gorgeous up there! Mountains were the backdrop of their wedding which was held at a beautiful farm house that had a barn, bar area, pool, and ruins in the backyard. It was an amazing venue! Just thinking about the evening makes me smile. I saw a TON of people that I had not seen in forever and I absolutely loved catching up with them. The weather was cool for a June night and the dance floor was on fire! Everyone was dancing the night away. I wore the wrong heels for dancing but refused to sit down for more than one song at a time. Even though Kris assured me that it was ok my wheels were flat, I insisted we go back to the dance floor. It was sweet to see how happy Hannah and Elliot were. Perfect weekend.

poor bloggy

So, I feel like I have not blogged in forever! Blogging is a relaxing thing for me to do and to know that I haven't had time to properly blog makes me feel a little crazy. I have been busy apartment shopping, working, and being a little bookworm that I have put my tiny bloggy aside. However, I am back! and boyyy do I have a lot to blog about.

The first exciting thing I want to blog about is my love for Max and Chloe:

I have been saving up for a Max and Chloe monogrammed necklace for a while. Recently I finally had put aside enough extra cash that I was able to purchase it. It has recently become my favorite piece of jewelry. I think it looks so feminine and elegant. Then, Kris and I celebrated dating for a year on saturday and I came home to this Max and Chloe ring. I am not really into wearing big jewelry but I think this piece is so fun and I love it so much! Thanks Kris!


I also have several books I have been switching reading. I can't decide which one I like best so I read a few pages in each of them at a time. Since I have never been a Maid of Honor before and I will be at my brother and his fiance's wedding, I wanted to be informed of my duties so I picked up this precious little book. Isn't it cute? Informative too! Kris also got me the new "Book of Awesome" I think these books are so great and allow you to stop and think about what things in life we seem to take for granted. Some of my favorite pages are: "picking up things with your feet," "finally peeing after holding it forever," and letting go of the gas pump perfectly so you end on a round number." I think it's is so funny when I read it, I say to myself, "oh, I love that!" or "that is great!" This book definately cheers me up! Then there is "Heaven is for Real" This book is an incredible story about a boy who visits heaven during one of his surgery's and comes back to earth and shares what he saw. It shows how great God's love is and a glimpse of what we might expect from Heaven.

I had a great weekend working and relaxing and I came home to these lovlies on Saturday...

sweet boyfriend.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

June Baby

"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." -Tenneva Jordan

Happy birthday Momma. I have never met a better friend, inspiration, or leader quite like you. You have always been there to dust off my knees when I have fallen, wipe my tears when I have cried, and share my laughter when a good joke is told. No matter how far apart we are, we are always together. You may never know just how much I love an appreciate all you do for me. You are the strongest woman I have ever met and I can only hope to be half as strong you as I grow. You have been patient with me when my life winds in all different directions and you have always encouraged me to follow my heart. I know no matter how old I get, I will always have someone's shoulder to cry on and someone to curl up on the sofa in the sunroom to read a book with. You have made me realize the beauty in life. You will forever be my hero. I love you.
