baby boots.

Meet the newest member of our family – baby boots! Yep, I’M PREGNANT!! WOO-HOO!! He/she is 13 weeks old. We are so excited!

I’m sure I’ve alienated any readers that I once had, since I’ve not posted in months! I hope you’ll forgive me. I stopped blogging because being pregnant has completely monopolized my thoughts, and thus posting about anything else felt like a complete lie. And we decided we wouldn’t tell anyone until 13 or 14 weeks. Also, being a walking zombie hasn’t helped the blogging cause at all – I’ve spent most of the last 3 months sleeping. I’ll post more about the pregnancy tomorrow!

girl’s weekend.

I know I promised that my next post was going to be about Oprah and angry travelers, but I started to write it and I got so fired up, I had to stop. So, new plan. I’m going to write about my weekend in Scottsdale, AZ with my mom and sis. Every year we escape to the sun for a girl’s weekend and we always have the BEST time doing a whole lot of nothing! As you can imagine, there was a lot of talking, eating, drinking cocktails, playing cards, drinking coffee and laughing. As it turns out, there wasn’t quite enough sunscreen or water (I came back a little sunburned and needing water)! I am so lucky to have a mom and sister who I enjoy spending time with! They are the best!

thanksgiving.

I know this is going to be a huge shocker to everyone, but I love Thanksgiving. It is my favorite holiday of the year. Good food, family, no gift-buying pressure, cooking and relaxing all day, quality time, board games, leftovers…I love it all.  This year, we’re spending the holiday with Derek’s family. Every couple years we go away with his family and rent a house in the mountains. It’s so much fun and I’m really looking forward to it!

goin’ to the chapel.

Over the weekend my brother-in-law (it’s so weird I have in-laws…I feel like such an adult). Anyways, over the weekend, my brother-in-law proposed to his wonderful girlfriend and she said yes!! You know when you see a couple and you get warm-fuzzies inside? This couple gives me warm-fuzzies! I absolutely adore them and we are so excited and happy for them! Congrats Gabe and Mary B!

the devil went down to georgia

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a special treat tonight. It’s been five years since their last performance, but they are better than ever. It was well worth the wait. This dynamic duo has a special place in my heart because they performed at my 21st birthday and now they are back for Stan Brownlee’s 25th birthday. Put your hands together for Johnny W and the Fancy Fiddler!

A couple things you need to know before watching this video:

  • You need to turn your computer volume on for this.
  • They are a little rusty for the first minute, but by the end of the song they really ROCK IT OUT. Trust me, it’s worth it.
  • Yes, I am related to these two!!
