Weekend Recap

This past weekend was a very busy one. Friday night Bryan and I headed to Fayetteville when he got home from work. After an unsuccessful attempt for dinner, a stall in traffic due to a wreck, and many Dr. Peppers, we arrived at our destination--the wonderful Webb home!! The Webbs are just like family to us. I took care of the three kids my last year in college and the following summer. Lesly and Jason are so wonderful...Bryan and I look up to them so much!

Saturday Bryan and I got to watch Lauren's and Peyton's last basketball games of the season. I took lots of pictures, but sadly none of them turned out very well. After the games Bryan headed off to fish for the afternoon. I went to meet Emily for a girls' afternoon of lunch and shopping. That was abruptly stopped when after a short phone call we realized that our wedding calculations were wrong. (The whole reason of the trip was because my YOUNGEST cousin, Nathaniel, was getting married to his sweetheart, Lauren--not to be confused with little Lauren.) We raced home, got home and made it to the church with ten minutes to spare! So much for our relaxing afternoon!

The wedding was very sweet! Welcome to the family LAUREN!!

After the wedding some of us went to Hog Haus for drinks and food. As the evening went on, I felt worse and worse. I ended up calling it an early night and headed home for bed. Not to be a party pooper for everyone, I sent Bryan out on the town with Emily. Apparently I missed out on quite a bit...a bride in her dress at the bar, a barefoot bridesmaid, and a groomsman with only his vest on. (This was NOT a part of the same wedding I had attended earlier.)

Sunday we stayed in our pajamas until 2:00! None of us wanted to leave and head back to the real world. I have to admit that I was a bit spoiled with Lesly's cooking--she is a fabulous cook! I finally pulled my camera out a few minutes ago and have added some pictures. I'm still feeling yucky, but cannot get in to see a doctor until Thursday. I'm sure I'll be better by then.

Here are Bryan and Peyton....they spent hours playing playing the Wii and PS3.

Here are Brecken and I watching Peyton's basketball game. He is my little sweetheart!

Here are Bryan and I at the reception.

Here I am with my Mimi and Emily.

Latest Obsession

I am very ready for it to be spring. I am ready to be wearing short-sleeved clothes and even ready to be wearing shorts. My latest InStyle and Bazaar came in last week and I think I have poured over them at least 10 times each. My latest obsession is jumpsuits/rompers. Whatever you want to call them depending on the version.

Here are three that I am loving right now. The top one is Lilly Pulitzer. I'm afraid it is going to be a must-have. The second one is at Bloomingdale's. Not nearly as expensive and completely different from the Lilly. The last one is by far my favorite, only I want it in pink. Tibi. Need I say more?

Oh my goodness, I almost forgot to post the most important thing about today's date...Bryan and I got engaged two years ago today!!! Time has flown by so quickly!!! Here is one of my favorite pictures from that special night!

Maybe A Little Better

I had pretty much forgotten that I even had a blog, until my mind was jarred by a friend's email announcing hers. It has literally been 9 months since my last post. I have decided to try and be a little bit better about blogging....maybe. :)
I will go ahead and for-go a recap of all of the holidays that I missed and start out with the most recent--Valentine's Day! Since we got some snow, Bryan and I decided to stay in and have a relaxing day at home. I had made his card earlier in the week. I still don't think the pics do it justice.

Here is the front:
And here is the inside:

Thursday was the day we had our party at school. Since the letter of the week was "Pp" we had a pajama party, the kids brought their pillows, ate pizza and pudding, drank punch and watched Peter Pan!

Here is a cute one of the kids:
