What a day!

Well, my day started out with a bang (almost literally) when my car wouldn't start. I guess technically my car did and will start- I just have to give it gas for a good 5 minutes so that it won't stall out. Currently, my car is sitting at the Mazda dealership getting looked at. We'll see how much that will cost.

But- my day only got better and better when I realized that I have only 75 days until I'm married!! I also dropped by our photographers house (who by the way is AWESOME- Elizabeth Burgess @ Burgess Photography) and picked up my cd of engagement pictures. They are INCREDIBLE. She had also made us a print of one picture and I went and had it framed. I'm SO excited :-) I can't show you all of the pictures but here is a little taste.

Praise God, Ashley and Forrest got engaged! I am so happy for ya'll :-)

Also- I'm so excited about Parker's graduation this weekend and getting to see the fam! YAY for good times :-) As for that, I'm off to go to Lily's and watch the premier of THE BACHELORETTE!!!

So long....

OSCAR?? Oh wait....I'm not at the beach anymore. On Sunday afternoon I got back from a terrific weekend at the Outer Banks (not Emerald Isle) with Amanda, Laura, Charlotte, my mom, Mrs. Lydia, and Aunt Kitty. We had a BLAST! I am so thankful for wonderful family like Aunt Kitty and Charlotte who put everything together and arranged TONS of surprises. One of our major surprises was an awesome lunch (fresh salad w/ raspberry vinegrette, shrimp, bread, wine)! It was absolutely delicious.

Charlotte [Webb] also surprised us with wonderful spa bags. Everything in them was terrific, but we especially had fun with our turbans :)

The sand was at the beach was blowing around a lot so Mrs. Lydia, Aunt Kitty, Charlotte and Laura went to the pool for the day on Saturday while Amanda and I braved the sand. It was beautiful weather and we had a blast. Then, Saturday night we all went to dinner at the Sunset Grill. It was SO good! As usual, there is never a dull moment wherever we go. We found these sweet hats at the little store and had to try them on for a photo op.

Sunday morning was Mother's Day so Laura and I began the day by giving Mrs. Lydia (the wonderful mother of our men) a pretty stargazer lily and card! Then, we were headed home to see our own Mothers. Amanda and I rode home together and before we got to Raleigh, we HAD to stop at Jockey's Ridge! It is so big....I mean so big that I wasn't even willing to climb to the top (haha)! Well, now it's back to realty- so long pretty beach.

Speaking of so long- I have to go back to teaching tomorrow. I had a wonderful track-out and am ready to see my sweet kiddies! I can't believe that this is my last night of break as a year-round teacher. Shew- that's scary. Pray that I get a job in Craven County.

Well- thanks to Laura that was my first scatterbrained post :-)

Many more to come....
