"My Best Friend's Wedding"

This past Saturday, May 16th, was Jen & Andrew's wedding! I thought the title was fitting, especially since it's one of my favorite movies! Being the Matron of Honor, I had a full, great day. We started out with our bridesmaid breakfast that morning. After that, I went with Jen and we got our hair done. After making a quick stop by our house, my mom and I headed out to Camp Comer to eat with the girls and start getting ready. The weather was gorgeous all during pictures. We made it back to the wedding site when it was time for the wedding to start, and after our processional and Jen's arrival at the altar, the skies turned dark. I could hear thunder a few times and the wind started blowing a little. We made it through the recessional and got to our vehicles to travel to the reception site, and the rain started. Good timing! We got a little wet on our way from our cars to the reception, but we didn't melt! The reception, just as the wedding, was beautiful and we all had a great time getting to catch up and spend time with each other- old friends and new ones. I even got out on the dance floor- which was lots of fun! I'm including many of the pictures I took that I'm proud of!

Mother's Day Weekend

We had a great Mother's Day weekend with our families! We spent Saturday in Chattanooga with my family. We shopped at the mall and then all met at Ichiban for dinner- me, Zach, Mom, Dad and Jonathan. It was wonderful getting to spend time with them, especially since Jonathan leaves in one week for school in Nashville!!

On Sunday, we enjoyed church that morning with baptisms, baby dedications and a great song in choir! After church, we had my family over for lunch. I am so blessed to have my two grandmothers and grandfather here with us and close by. I really enjoyed getting to spend time with them at our house. I was planning on getting a few pictures, but we were all so busy I had forgotten about it while they were at the house.

Sunday night, we ventured to Chattanooga again and spent time with Zach's mom. We went to Barnes & Noble and then to Outback to eat, which was great!

We both had a wonderful weekend spending time with our families. It makes us realize how very blessed we are!!

Daisy & Cosmo

Cosmo has had to come inside the house for the last four days while the men installed our new roof. Surprisingly, he and Daisy have gotten along really well. They would stay in Zach's office with him while he worked throughout the day. The first is a picture he took with his iPhone from his office chair. They both fell asleep near his desk, really close to each other. The second is a cute picture he took of both of them.
