Intense title, huh? I tried to cram it all in there.
Life has been so full and so busy lately--but I love it that way. Busyness and full days=lots of memories, lots of joy, and tons of happiness, even if they are a little stressful. I wouldn't have it any other way...don't you agree?
This past weekend was my little sister's engagement party! It was a wonderful weekend celebrating Katie and Ben with our closest family and friends...we had a full house of sister's bridesmaids and we had the BEST TIME. So much love and laughter surrounded all of us the whole weekend...it was such a fabulous celebration of this couple! Can you tell I'm cheesy and sentimental today?? This time of year just gets to me.
The happy couple! Congrats to Katie and Ben!
Bride and Maid of Honor! (in my Kiki La Rue dress woo!!)
My handsome wedding date...love that boy.
Girls celebrating at the Alluvian
The Bride and her Matron of Honor
We had two other actual photographers there (who don't frequent Instagram for their pics...) so when I get some from them, I'm sure I'll be posting some more pics :)
Sunday afternoon, we had a Christmas shower for my sweet friend, Kelsie. Her wedding is in June and I cannot wait for it to get here! Christmas showers are SUCH a good idea--she got the best decor and we all had a great, festive time!
Me, Mama, and Katie
Me and the gorgeous Bride! Love you, Kels!
Sisters. We've grown up together--known each other since birth. Love these girls so much!
I have been working up a storm lately--but luckily, I had a day off Tuesday, so Mama and I spent the day in Memphis shopping before the main event that night--the Carrie Underwood concert! If you know me, you know I have a serious girl crush on that woman. I wanna be her, or just be her best friend--one of the two. She was ahhhhmazing live--she's even prettier than she looks on TV and she sounds even better live than on a CD. Our seats were rockin' too...it was such a fantastic girls' night! Can I have her legs? Or her voice? Or her big ole diamond ring? Puhlease?
Okay, prepare yourselves--it made me want to go straight to the gym. I mean, really. I almost left my big camera at home, but turned around to get it and I'm so glad I did--I'm pretty impressed with my pictures, I must say!
Was I right or was I right? How is it fair for someone to look like that? She's amazing.
Girls!!! I miss y'all. I promise I'm going to get better with my replies and with reading your blogs...working 48 hours in 4 straight days is taking a toll on me. I'm cramming this post in at midnight when I have to be awake in 5 hours. It's worth it--I need my blog time, for sure. I promise I've been reading from all of you and love every single one of my comments. I'm the luckiest girl in the world! Thankful for y'all.
Can you believe Christmas is so close? This year has flown by quicker than any year before. It's going to be 2013 before we can even blink! I sure hope your holiday seasons have been all you imagined and more--cherish all the little moments with the people you love, because that's what matters the most!
Happy Thursday, pretties! Almost Friday and ALMOST CHRISTMAS!
