So I don't quite know what to do with my time in the evenings without baby shower decorations to work on! Life has been busy, but good. Our weekends lately have been filled with beach trips, a baby shower, and visits from friends and family. We've been busy, but it's been fun.

Friday night we met up with Ashley and her friend Tyler in midtown for dinner! Ashley has been in town for her high school reunion, so we're squeezing in as much hang out time as possible. Three years ago when we first moved here, we had lunch with these two at the park. It's fun to meet up again!

Saturday morning, I enjoyed my coffee while reading Bloom. It's so good. Everyone should read it. 
 Brian's parents came in town this weekend for Great Aunt Marguerite's 92nd birthday party! We gave her these beautiful hydrangeas. 
Look how cute she is! It was so fun to meet more extended family. Marguerite is Lloyd's mother's oldest sister, and she lives with her daughter Ruth and her family. We had a lovely dinner at their house in Alpharetta to celebrate the birthday.  
 Truett and Jack enjoying yummy chocolate cake!
 Ruth has a beautiful back yard with lots of honeysuckles! Jack didn't love the taste. 
Sunday morning I tried a new recipe for strawberry lemon scones. The original recipe uses orange zest and orange juice, but I used lemon. They were yummy! 
 After church, Brian, Lloyd, Susan and I went to downtown Buford for lunch at Ricco's World Kitchen. It was fun to try a new restaurant in a new area to us.

 Then we went to my favorite antique store in Buford to look around for a bit. Lloyd and Susan bought me this adorable milk glass cake stand. I love it!
Ashley came to hang out more on Monday night after I got home from work! We went out to dinner and then to the mall for a little shopping... She had a little culture shock. Where she lives in Virginia, there are hardly any stores.. definitely no malls. It had been months since she had been inside an actual mall!
So fun 
 Toby couldn't resist.
 They're having a moment. Toby is teaching Ashley to become a dog person. :) She loves him deep down.
