I went home last weekend and had a great time. I don't get home enough and every time I go, I swear I'm going to go once a month but life gets in the way and it doesn't happen. I love home. As much as I am eager for my parents to move back to Birmingham, a part of me will be sad that I will no longer be able to go "home".

Mom and I (ok, dad too...) watched about 3 hallmark movies over the weekend, ate an amazing breakfast saturday morning, went shopping with my 2 best friends, and cooked dinner Saturday night for the Bama/UT game. We had Melissa and Matt over to watch the game. Matt is a Tennessee fan so we had a divided house for the game! Thankfully for dad and I, Bama won. :)

Sunday Melissa and I went running and dominated our 4.5 miler!!! Our 10k is in a week and a half and I think we are about ready!! :)

I stayed a little later than normal on Sunday and dad washed my car before I left! Never to old for daddy to take care of you and your car, right?? ;)

Little Pumpkins

Christen and I took the kids to the pumpkin patch on Friday after I got out of school and we had a blast! They got to go through a petting zoo, pick cotton, climb on hay bales, go on a hayride, and pick their own pumpkins (ok, I picked one too). :)

The weather was absolutely perfect, not too hot and not too cold!

Here are some pictures from our fun afternoon!!

Too early...

For hot chocolate??

I think not!!

Already had it 3 times in the past week :)

And yes, one of my mugs is a Christmas one, no shame. Never to early.

My Sunday

In pictures....

(Ok and a few words...)

I ran 4 miles, played with Emma, had a great afternoon with Ty, cooked dinner, and lounged on the couch. :)

We were watching a dog competition where they had to go retrieve birds and ducks and Emma couldn't stop watching the tv, it was so funny. That's what the random picture of Emma watching the tv is of :)

Cousins wedding in the country

This weekend was my cousin, Gabrielle's Wedding! It was a beautiful weekend! The rehearsal dinner was in Eutaw, AL in a barn, wedding was outside on her (other) grandparent's property in Clinton, AL and the reception was in their barn on the same property. This setting made me break out my cowgirl boots and 2 cute dresses! Everything was absolutely beautiful! Their ceremony was at sunset on a pond and the pictures I took had the perfect backdrop.

I am so happy for her and her new hubby, Stewart! I can't wait to see what The Lord has in store for their future. Congrats you two!!!! Love y'all!!!
