Where Have I Been?

Well, that was officially one of the longest blogging breaks I have ever taken. I can't tell you how much of a whirlwind the last two weeks have been! The main thing that has kept me away from this blog is that I started back to school (23 hrs/week), and I'm working a lot more (18 hrs/week) {not exactly blog worthy material...} BUT this past weekend I was finally able to put work & school aside and have some fun!

Friday night Adam and I met some friends for dinner and had a great time : )

Saturday we had yet another wedding! This time it was one of A's friends. We always laugh because the second we leave a wedding these days we start critiquing it and comparing it to all the other weddings we've been to. I keep joking that our wedding is just going to be a combination of our favorite parts of all the weddings we've been to. The wedding this weekend fell into "my favorite ceremony" category. I feel like not very many people have church weddings these days so to go to one was a treat! I love traditional, southern, church weddings. {Sorry no pics from the wedding!}

I had to leave the reception early to head to a bridal shower for my BFF/roomie, Katie, who is getting married in June! It has become kind of comical because EVERY shower that Katie has had I have had a wedding the same day!! Our other roommate, McKinley, and Katie's sister/MOH, Ansley, hosted the shower & they did a great job! I wish I would have taken more pictures of the decor..everything was PERFECT!

Sunday Adam and I headed out to the lake with my mom's side of the family to celebrate Memorial Day and also all the May birthdays! We stayed at the house on Saturday and just hung out by the pool and grilled out. Carolyne-Grace was SO much fun to watch. She loves the water and was in the pool the whole day. She was jumping off the diving board by the end of the day!! For someone who isn't even 2 yet she is a good little swimmer! She was obsessed with wearing her "doggles" ; )

My cousin was there with her 11 wk old twin girls, Lila & Ava! I am so obsessed with twins.. it's not even funny. I have wanted them SO bad for as long as I can remember. There are at least one set of twins every generation of my family & they're always fraternal and the sex is always determined by the person who is the link to the family, so for example my cousin is a girl so she had girls, but if my brother had twins he would have fraternal boys. It is insane. It goes back as far as we can trace it!

Lake Oconee is my favorite place in the entire world and I am so glad we get to go all the time : ) Except this summer we are so booked with weddings/showers/bachelor/bachelorette parties that I'm not sure we will get to go as much as we usually do!

Today it's back to work and school... but at least it's a short week & I have a Bridesmaids Luncheon to look forward to on Saturday : )

Hope y'all had a great weekend!!
