Memorial Day Weekend

I love Memorial Day. It's the start of summer! This year, we spent it in Charlotte, where we stayed with the most recent newlywed couple, the Day's! Ginna and and Jeff met up with us there for the weekend. Brian and Jeff were groomsmen in their college roommate, Jimmy's wedding. This was the first time we had all hung out since everyone has been married! So fun! Carrie and Andrew were fabulous hosts, welcoming us into their home after only 3 weeks of being married! It was a great weekend. Rockband, Yoforia, slumber party with the girls and Andrew (B&J had groomsmen duties), wedding cake, mimosas, Carrie's famous waffles, lunch at Cowfish (go there! it is so good!), wedding video viewing, fabric shopping, Little Big Planet, walking around Crate & Barrel discussing kitchen gadgets... It was great. Next year, let's go to the BEACH!

The newlyweds!

The beautiful wedding at the Orchard House in Concord

Waiting for our husbands to be finished with bridal party pictures. This is the only half decent picture of us because we became progressively hotter and sweatier... Not photo worthy.

Congratulations to Jimmy & Christen!! The wedding was beautiful!


This weekend was so fun. My brother and his wife came to stay with us for a few days! We got to hang out all day on Saturday and spent some of the afternoon at the Sweetwater Brewery. Brian and I had wanted to go ever since we moved to Atlanta, but it didn't work out until now. It was a lot of fun! It was wonderful to hang out with John and Tiffany, and really made me wish that we lived closer!

Warrior Dash

This weekend was quite eventful. Several months ago, my good friend Ashley had the great idea to run the Warrior Dash.. She didn't even have to convince me to do it with her! I jumped on the idea and was very excited about it! My sister was supposed to join our group, but that didn't work out. Sad. I realize how out of character this is for me when I tell people what I did, and they say, "That just doesn't sound like you." Well we did it! Ashley loved it. I didn't hate it. :) I have never been so dirty in my life. Swimming through muddy water, climbing over cars and trucks, pulling ourselves over hurdles and under walls sliding through mud, army crawling through muddy water under barbed wire, climbing over a wall with a rope... And then running 3 miles through a muddy trail... It was hard! I'm glad we did it.. We laughed a lot maybe I'll do it again...? I know you will, Ashley!!

Here we are! Ready to go!!

Ashley's mom and aunt came with us- first aid kits in hand as they cheered us along! Look how cute they are!

Climbing over this wall was probably the scariest for me.. We made it though!

Made it over the fire with no burns. Success!

We finished! Completely soaked and covered in mud!

Carrie & Andrew's Wedding!!

Carrie and Andrew got married on Saturday! We drove up Saturday morning, in time for the bridesmaids brunch! Here we are with the flowers and pearls that Carrie gave us to wear for the wedding.

All of the Hamilton Lakes girls at the rehearsal dinner! I am so thankful for these ladies. I have known them my whole life and can't imagine life without them. I'm thankful we're so close!

Dorothy made this wedding topper for Carrie & Andrew. Very cute!

Here they are!! The bride & groom!!!!

Keeping the tradition alive.

Carrie sent a memo to all of the males attending the wedding, asking them to wear a bow tie in Andrew's honor. It was so fun!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Day!! Have a wonderful honeymoon!!!
