Blogging from my beach chair watching the sun start to make its way down the beautiful sky. This is my favorite time of the day at the beach...the breeze starts to pick up, I'm not profusely sweating, and the sky is so pretty. Thought I'd share some pictures of our trip so far. I think it's safe to say I am very relaxed & we are having a great time! I've already had amazing crab legs, to die for fried shrimp, finised a book on the beach, started another one, worked out twice, had a girly movie night with Ty's mom & sister, and completed a 1,000 piece puzzle in 3 hours. :)

Thought I'd post some recent pics of Emma! She is growing so fast! She was 34 lbs the other day when Ty weighed her!!! She still halfway looks like a puppy but that puppy face is turning into a grown up face more & more each day!

I started reading this book last night and i can't put it down. I have a feeling I'm going to finish it tonight or tomorrow!!! If you haven't read it, you should!!! It's by Kelle Hampton!

I haven't been home since march and a trip was needed. A change of scenery, my momma, my dad, my room, mom cooking in the kitchen, my high school friends, and the list goes on. It was needed. There is nowhere quite like home. It floods my heart with so many feelings of happiness. I love my life in Alabama but coming home is a different kind of feeling. I know every knick and cranny of this town and that gives me comfort. Home is needed sometimes, it's good for the soul.

The second I see "that" intersection, my heart skips a beat. You know that one, the one that you drive up to & you know you're almost home. It puts a smile on my face. I don't always come home the same way but everytime I see that intersection, I know I'm almost there.

As soon as I got here mom had dinner on the table. I don't think I've inhaled a meal that quick in a long time. I am lucky & get home cooked meals a lot from Ty's mom, but there's nothing quite like your own mom's cooking. The ones you grew up eating that still taste the exact same. :)

Thank you summer, for allowing me to come home on a Wednesday, just because!

Happy Birthday Aubrey!!!

Today my niece, Aubrey is 3 years old!! I can't believe it! I swear just yesterday I was holding her in my arms in the hospital! She brings so much joy to my life!! She is SO funny and her laugh is so cute! She wants to do everything Luke does which i think is too cute.

She loves to torture me when I leave by giving me 10 hugs, standing by the door, and saying "don't go aunt Kafween!" Last week when I was leaving she looked up at me and said, "can I go wif you Kafween?" heart melted.

She is such a good helper with her younger brother & sister!! Today she put Kate's paci in her mouth when she was crying & then went straight to Levi to find his paci because he was crying. So sweet!

Happy Birthday sweet girl, Aunt Kat loves you so much!!!

Nana and Poppy

Dad and I went to visit Nana and Poppy yesterday for Father's Day. They (along with my Meme and Uncle Stu) are buried in a cemetery in town that I drive by everyday. I can't drive by without looking over and thinking about all of them. We were passing it yesterday on the way home from lunch and dad mentioned stopping so he could see his dad's grave and of course I agreed! Nana and Poppy are buried near Meme and Uncle Stu & he asked if I wanted to go see Meme's grave but I thought it was too soon, I don't know if I'm ready yet so I said no.

There were beautiful flowers on Nana and Poppy's grave and that made me smile. We only stayed a few minutes but it was nice to go.

It's been over a year since Nana passed away and I really can't believe it's been that long since I hugged her neck.

It's been 12 years since Poppy passed away and it makes me sad that I can barely hear his voice anymore. It fades from my memory with every year that passes. I can however still feel his sweet kisses on my cheek! :) He have one of a kind kisses!

Thank you lord for blessing me with such wonderful grandparents!!!

Daddy's Day

Today is the day we stop & thank our sweet daddys for being so great! We really should do it more often :)

I am so blessed to have a Godly father that has always be there for me. He is the reason I love BAMA so much, and the reason I have always thought I deserved to be treated like a princess. He is always there to give me advice, and give me a good "daddy" hug. He gives the best "I don't wanna let go" hugs. He is my favorite person to go to a football game with & always knows how to make me laugh. His stupid jokes really are funny sometimes ;). He raised 4 daughters and has sacrificed so much for us. The best three gifts he has given me are loving God, loving my mom, and loving us. He has set the bar high for the man I marry.

I could go on & on about how fabulous he is, but I'd be up all night.

Thank you dad for loving me unconditionally!!! You are truly one of a kind. No matter how old I am, I will ALWAYS be yours. And always remember, you were the first man I loved!!!!

Shopping spree

So I don't know who I think I am lately but I have been on a shopping spree the past few days. One of my friends came up Sunday from Tuscaloosa & we shopped, shopped, and shopped!!!! I got 2 new dresses, 5 new shirts, new running pants, and 3 new necklaces!!! I think it's safe to say I'm not shopping anymore in June! I never go shopping so a spree like this is very unlike me!!! I didn't take a picture of everything I bought but below are 2 of my new blue shirts and one of my new necklaces that I LOVE! The coral shirt I'm wearing with the necklace is one of my new shirts too! I'm in love with the coral & zebra combo! The navy blue polka dot sheer tank top is for the 4th of july!

Wedding in pictures

Lauren's wedding was absolutely perfect! There are no words to describe the joy on her face, which in turn made my heart do cartwheels because I am so happy for her. I adore seeing my friends so happy. Her & her new hubby are enjoying Antigua right now and I'll have to wait until Sunday to talk to her about how much she's enjoying married life. Every step of this weekend was flawless & beautiful....

Congrats Lauren & Casey! I love you both & wish you a life of happiness, love, and lots of sweet babies :)
