On another note, Loni and I are going to participate in and arts and crafts show on Labor Day weekend in Crane Hill. So next week, I will be parked at my sewing machine. I have my list of items that we are focusing on having, so I need to stay on target. I have 2 weeks to make up a BUNCH of stuff! Wish me luck! And if you haven't seen our website or our etsy store, check them out and let me know what you think! We have so many more items that are going to be introduced to our websites within the next month, so keep checking it out!

Baby carriages, bottles and flowers with Addison's initials. Yes, she's having a girl, but the nursery is a "Tiffany blue" so I tried to match. Addison even joined in on the gift giving and sent her daddy a gift.
Here's the cute sign in table. You can see a couple of super cute maternity pics that Heather's mom took at the beach last month.
Of course, before I left, I had to take our pic since I am a professional at taking my own picture:
My cousin is on the left, 23 and single. Anyone interested? Here is mamaw with her 4 grandchildren. Aubrey was definitely NOT interested in having her picture taken at this point. She was waaaaay to busy playing with the other kids. Ashley divided us up with the married ones on the right, singles on the left.
Here's just Mamaw Ezma:Isn't she just too cute! She's had strokes in the past and there was a period last year that she had to move in with my parents and my uncle, but she is back to living by herself and doing for herself. She's not as independent as she would like, but in her words, "That's what happens when you get old as dirt."
Last pic is of me and my mom. I don't have enough of these...

I chose not to read the book prior to seeing the movie since I've been disappointed in the last couple of movies I've done that with. I have since read the book, and I'm happy with that decision since the ending is totally different. One of my friends had warned me that I would probably cry, so I took some tissue with me. I was made fun of since I couldn't find my small package of tissues and my purse was huge, therefore, I just stuck a box in my purse. By the end of the movie all of us were crying and Monique retracted her statement. :) Great movie, but much better book!
Anyone want to participate in stimulus Tuesdays, let me know. I love a good movie! Some I am looking forward too:
Madea is HILARIOUS!!!
I have always been on Team Jennifer!
I love that we can take these trips! I just feel so incredibly blessed to have married a man that has my same travel bug and loves the beach as much-if not more than I do.
So, on Oct 17th we are heading to Playa del Carmen to stay here:
And hopefully my view will look like this:
And I will be spending a lot of time lying around in one of these chairs:
I am so incredibly excited and I've already started the countdown. Less than 2 months away!

As you know last weekend, Kent was in a wedding in Oxford. We left bright and early on Friday morning since Kent was playing golf with the groomsmen at 9am. I dropped Kent off, and had the day to myself. Thanks to Suzanne I knew to head to the Bottletree Bakery for breakfast. I had a mocha and a cup of granola in this quaint little bakery and read for about an hour. Then I headed to the square to check out some of the shops. I loved the bookstore and a little store called Peridot. Most of the other stores were a little too rich for my wallet, but it was nice to just browse for a while. I headed over to the hotel to see if I could possibly check in early, but since everybody from the wedding was checking in and none of the rooms were ready 2pm was the earliest. I found an antique store that I spent about 1.5 hours in just looking around. I wanted to buy so many things, but since I drive a compact car, nothing I wanted would've fit. I left empty handed. I spent the rest of the day just riding around looking at some wonderful architecture and giving myself a tour of the Ole Miss campus.
By the time I could check in, Kent was at the hotel. We had a late lunch at Boure of some really good cheese dip. It had andouille sausage and green chilies...YUM!!! Then it was time to get ready for the rehearsal. They got married at a gorgeous older church with a huge stained glass. The rehearsal dinner was at the Rib Cage with grilled chicken, new potatoes, green beans and lemon ice box pie.
Then we were off to Old Venice Pizza's Burgundy Room for a "Party on the Eve." I met one of the groom's cousin's and we quickly became "best friends."
Saturday, I was awakened by the phone call about Gus, so I stayed in the bed the rest of the morning. Kent had a groomsman's breakfast at 10 and when he got back, we slept the day away. It was exactly what I needed. Kent had to be at the church for pics at 3:30, so I dropped him off and went back to the hotel to get ready.
The wedding was beautiful and the party left on a double decker bus.
Every single time I tried to get a picture of Kent and I, he would either look away or not smile. His philosophy is that you only smile 10% of your life, so why would you want a bunch of pics looking different than any other time. On my nerves!!!
