1) Do you apologize to your kids?
*Well, I don't have any real kids.. but I always apologize to my fur baby, Lexie!

I mean seriously, look how cute she is.. wouldn't you feel bad if you yelled at her?!

2)What color are your nails right now?
*Essie-Ballet Slippers.. all time favorite

3) When you were growing up, how difficult was it for you to stay home from school sick? (As in, did you have to vomit or just say "I don't feel good.")
*My mom firmly believes in "mental health days" Ha ha So every once in a while she would let me stay home from school and we would go shopping, get our nails done, etc. I have a great mama who knows people just need breaks sometimes..even kids!

4) When is the last time you bought a new comforter for your bed?
I got a new one for my birthday, so January!

5) Favorite website(s)
*Blogger, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Polyvore

Wedding Weekend!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Adam and I, along with our friends Kayla & Clayton, headed down to St. George Island for the weekend to see one of Adam's best friends, Jessica, get married :-)

We stayed in a cute little house on the bay.

We got down there Friday afternoon & immediately met up with everyone at the beach!
Most everyone had gone down for the whole week so we were joining the party late.

After hanging on the beach all afternoon we got dressed & took some pictures on the dock :-)

Then we went & had dinner at a really great oyster bar.

That night we met up with everyone again for a night out on the island.
Pat (the groom) & his family have been going to SGI their whole lives so EVERYONE on the Island knew about the wedding.

We got up Saturday, ate lunch & got ready for the wedding.

The ceremony was at a Catholic church about 10 mins off of the island. It was a beautiful ceremony. I had never been to a Catholic wedding before so that was a first for me... extremely long, but very tradition and beautiful, I loved it!

The reception was held back on the Island at the Groom's beach house! We had cocktail hour at the house & then headed down to the beach & had the reception under a huge lighted tent. This was by far the most fun reception I have ever been too! We were there until 2am. SO much fun dancing the night away with my boy & all of our friends..

Such a wonderful weekend that left me extremely anxious for my own wedding someday ;-)

Here are a few things I am loving today...

I am LOVING that Adam and I are going to a wedding this weekend in Apalachicola and will be staying on St. George island with some of his long time friends!

I am LOVING the dress that I got to wear to the wedding...
I think it will look great once I get my spray tan tomorrow :-)

I am LOVING that me, adam and Chelsea took Carolyne-Grace to the pool on Monday for the first time. She LOVED it!!!

I am LOVING that I am spending the day with my bestie!! Going to lunch, getting our nails done & doing a little shopping.

Our weekend

We had a great Mother's Day weekend!
It was my first weekend {in a long time} that I haven't been stressed out about school!
It was so nice to just relax & spend time with my family.

On Saturday I went shopping with my mom & sister-in-law
I finally found a dress for the wedding that Adam and I are going to at the beach this weekend!
I am SO excited about it~ One of Adam's long time girl friends is getting married & we are getting to spend the weekend with some of his best friends!

We also took advantage of the sale going on at Gap.
We got my niece Carolyne-Grace THE CUTEST bikini ever!
My brother hates that we buy her bikinis ha ha

Saturday night we went to dinner with my mom's family for mother's day.
We met at an Italian restaurant but there was some miscommunication with our reservations so we ended up having to go somewhere else.

We ended up going to The Ritz at Lake Oconee & ate on the lake at Gabbys.
I am a total lake girl & I am obsessed with being near the water.
The food was amazing & the weather was perfect :-)

We all went to church this morning & then my sister-in-law, brother & Carolyne-Grace spent the rest of the day together while I went to brunch with my parents. After we ate I went with my dad to visit my grandma! It was so nice to spend time with my parents!! :-)

My mom chose to enjoy the rest of her day relaxing!
She was so happy to be at the house alone to do whatever she wanted ha ha

I am SO thankful for the amazing relationship I have with my mom.
She loves me and my brother completely UNCONDITIONALLY, no questions asked.
I know that I could never do anything to lose her love--& that is how all children should feel about their mothers.

I hope that one day I can be just as good of a mom to my children as she has been to me.
She supports me no matter what & is always there for me.


& I also want to say happy first mother's day to Chelsea!
She is such an AMAZING mother to CG.. she is such a lucky little girl.
Chelsea is only 19 & obviously having a child that young was not planned & is not an ideal situation but she is so great at being a mommy!!

I am so glad that I finally got the sister I have always wanted.
She would do absolutely anything for Carolyne-Grace.
~I love that she would rather stay at home on a Friday night with her baby than anything else in the world. She completely gave up the rest of her childhood when she got pregnant & not many teenagers do that given the circumstances. I thank God everyday that she has taken this responsibility so seriously & makes it look easy.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mamas!!!
