blasty blast for all

i had a fantastic weekend.  a weekend filled with friends, family, travel, laughter, visits, babies & love.

we rarely have a friday where nothing is planned.  there's always a h.s. game, leadership etc.  this friday...nothing.  can you believe it?  it was such a treat.  immediately after work i had the opportunity to hang out with my sweet h.s. friend, callie, before she left for spring break.  we caught up, chit-chatted & talked about life.  i followed that up with some much needed errand running & then home to the hubby.  it was a chill evening for sure.

saturday brought other great things.  namely, a shower for this sweetie!  look at her, isn't she a doll?  she's getting married in the near future so we had to hook her up with little pretties to start their life together.

ashley & her sister mere are two of the sweetest, funniest people i've ever known.  i just love to be around them.  i laughed until i cried many times over.

.some more shots from the day.
it was a fabulous celebration.  can't you tell?

unfortunately i had to speed of after the party.  benny and i were bound for northern ky...which i was very excited about.  we were on a time crunch because we didn't want to miss one second of the uk v. west virgina game.  in case you've been living under a rock...we lost.  it was a tradegy & we have all been in mourning since.  we had such a great season & it was a pleasure to cheer on such talented young players.  i wish wish wish they would stay one more year instead of heading off to the NBA so soon.

the reason we were in town was not to watch the game.  it was to see this little guy...james wesley.  you may remember us celebrating this fella {HERE} a while back.  now we get to celebrate his life in person!  cory & dusty are two of our dearest friends and it is such a blessing to get to walk through life with them.  he is a perfect little man who is blessed with faithful & wise parents who will love him to pieces and teach him about all the ways that the Lord cherishes him. 
and here's a little glimpse of what's to come...i've become an indoor gardener.


  1. I wanted to go to that shower SOOO bad - DANG IT CHICAGO! And, on another note, talk about ONE CUTE BABY!!!
