Orlando Outlet Haul

Today Jess and I decided to drive to Orlando to go shopping!
When Adam and I were in Orlando in March we visited the outlets & I couldn't wait to go back...


Here's what I got from Forever 21....

Love this top~ $17.80

~$15.80

Can't wait to wear this one on the 4th of July with some jean shorts
~$13.80

& of course I couldn't help but hit up the 60% off sale at Gymboree and get Caroylne-Grace some stuff!

Her 4th of July outfit...


and a new bathing suit for her birthday in July :-)


After we were done shopping we had to run in the rain to the car so we used our bags to cover our hair :-p


Such a fun day with my bestie!


Engagements!

In the past few weeks four of our really great friends have decided on forever...

Kayla & Clayton (Who you may remember from here) got engaged at the end of May
~Clayton told me and A while we were at the beach for Jessica & Pat's wedding that he was going to be proposing to Kayla the next wknd.. it took all I had in me not to spill the beans because I was SO excited!!~

her amazing ring that I'm obsessed with!

and my friends Sean and Breanna (who have been together since we were freshmen in high school) got engaged on Father's Day

He proposed in the same spot that he asked her to be his girlfriend almost 6 years ago :-)

I couldn't be happier for these 2 couples & I can't wait for their weddings next year~ S & B's in May and K & C's in June!

Hasta La Vista

'Cause now I'm knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky breeze blowin wind through my hair
Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair
Sun rise there's a fire in the sky
Never been so happy, never felt so high
And I think I might have found me my own kind of paradise

That's right! Headed on a 10 day vacay!!

First up..
Tybee Island to celebrate my grandparent's 50th anniversary with the whole fam!
I will be there from today until Sunday

THEN..
Meeting this girl and heading down to New Smyrna Beach until next Friday!!

~See ya in 10 days~

WILW


I'm linking up with Jamie for WILW :-)

I am currently eating my favorite snack, popcorn and M&M's.. yum!

I am LOVING a bunch this week...

I am LOVING that on Sunday our church had an event for our High Schoolers.. it was a block party, complete with dunking booth, jumpy thing, cookout, King Pops, & live music from The Less (Check them out they're amazing!)


Not ten minutes after the kids arrived it started pouring.. but that didn't stop them from having fun!


The Less


This song was recently chosen as the theme song for the t.v. show The Jensen Project!
~They also sang at our Middle School service, along with Emily Hearn (another AMAZING Athens singer.. check her out too!!)~


Me & Jessica (Go look at her blog, she just got a new look & I LOVE it!) at the block party! (We are volunteers for Transit, our church's middle school environment, so we were there to help set up, clean up, etc.)


I am LOVING that on Sunday Andy Stanley talked about priorities & making sure we started our day spending time with God.. So Jess & I headed to Barnes & Nobel and got a new devotional. We decided to get the same one & after we read it each morning we send each other an email with a little bit of what we thought about it.. helps keep us accountable & allows us to help each other.. today was day 3 & so far I am really enjoying it. Waking up & spending time with the Lord first thing really makes a difference in my attitude and just my overall happiness throughout the day :-)

We chose the devotional When I'm on My Knees..


I am LOVING that I have been able to spend so much time at the pool.. I love Summer!



I am LOVING that I decided to move back home for the summer~I was getting really lonely at my apartment since both of my roomies were in Italy for a month & are now living at home until July.

What are YOU loving?!

WILW


I'm linking up with Jamie today for WILW!

~I am LOVING the show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.. it is INSANE & I couldn't stop watching it the other night. Such craziness. Have y'all seen this show?!


~I am LOVING that this past Sunday Athens Church had its opening day in the new facility. It was SO nice & I am so excited about it. This is our first full time facility since the church began 6 years ago.. so it was a pretty big day in Athens!
Pretty much every Sunday our message comes to us via video of Andy Stanley, but this week he actually came to our church & welcomed us into the new building. It was really exciting for him to be there!

I am LOVING that in 2 weeks I will be heading to the beach for 10 days!! First I will be going on a family vacay to Tybee with all of my aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents.. etc. to celebrate my grandparent's 50th anniversary. And then Jessica and I are spending a week in New Smyrna.. I can't wait!! :-)

& of course I am LOVING my sweet Adam.. who has been super busy working Mark Richt Football Camp this week! SO proud of him for working such long, hard days (7:30 am-10:30pm) **Can't wait for it to be over though!!** ;-)

Hope y'all are having a great Wednesday!!

Five Years Ago~Remembering

Five years ago...
I was 16 years old, going into 11th grade, and on my way to cheer camp at the Univ of Alabama...


We had no idea what we were about to experience...


I will never forget getting "the call" from my friend Brittany that three of our friends were in a car wreck & two did not make it.
The one who did survive was one of my best friends, and the two that did not were two of my friends brothers.. one who was actually at cheer camp with us.


Today I am remembering Billy....


And Ryan...


It's not fair that y'all were taken from this earth, but I rest in the fact that you are living eternally with our Father.


Today I am praying for my sweet friends Alexis & Emily, I can't imagine the pain of losing a brother.
I am praying for their parents & other family members.
& I am praying for Nathan, whose survival in the accident can only be explained by a miracle from God.

RIP Ryan and Billy.

WILW


I'm linking up with Jamie on this miserably hot day in Georgia for WILW :-)

I am LOVING the great Memorial Day weekend we had!
We spent the weekend at the pool/lake.
Here are a few pictures from the weekend...




I am LOVING that Carolyne-Grace is 100% WALKING!
She has been taking steps since she was about 8 months old, but now she is full on walking EVERYWHERE! So cute.


I am LOVING that our good family friend, Margaret & her husband Tommy are expecting their second boy today! She was induced this morning & Baby Barrett should be here any time now! SO excited for them :-)

I am LOVING that Jessica & I are headed to the mall tonight for dinner & some shopping! I will definitely be visiting Sephora for some new foundation & I am hoping to get the new Nars Trio...
It has the blush & bronzer I use so WHY NOT!


I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! I can't believe it's already June!!
