There's No Place Like Home...

Sorry for the hiatus. We have just been extremely busy! Brittany, my beautiful sister, got married last Friday! Happy 1 week Anniversary to her and Denver.


She had the prettiest cake!


My beautiful sisters and I


They are currently on their honeymoon in Ireland and having a wonderful time. I have received a few emails from her and sounds like they are staying busy.

Florida was amazing! I don't think we could have had any better weather! We arrived there on Wednesday and stayed busy, busy, busy. Trying to put together a wedding is very stressful. But it turned out gorgeous! On Saturday, I finally got to relax on the beach. And apparently, my ghostly white legs have not seen the sun since LAST year because I burned. I mean burn baby burn! Luckily, Tara came over and said that I look really, really red and should put some sunscreen on. THANK GOODNESS she did. I would have been doubly miserable.


Thompson is looking cool in his shades!


At the beach -- he had a blast!

We had some wonderful food while we were there. The reception was held at the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and it was amazing! The food was simply fabulous and the staff was very accommodating. I know that took a lot of pressure off of my sister. On our way down and on our way back we stopped in Mobile, AL and ate at Felix's Fish Camp. It was sooooo good! I love seafood and this place was fantastic! The best part we found out was the freshest Key Lime Pie. I have never tasted anything so good in my life. Not kidding. I probably could have ate 3 or 4 whole pies. Ha!

So, yesterday was very overwhelming for me. I finished my classes (almost) and I was trying to get everything turned it. I am doing the Human Resource Development program from the U of A and unfortunately for me, they let you work at your own pace. Well to those of us who are procrastinators, this can be really, really bad. But, I did finish. And I am praying for all A's this semester. I know 4 out of the 5 will be A's, I am just waiting on one last class. So keep your fingers crossed for me.

Yesterday was my Papa's 74th birthday and Thompson's 19 month birthday! So Happy Birthday to them!!!

We are heading to Virginia towards the end of May for Robert's awards ceremony. He and 3 other men will be awarded as the Marines of Year; each for their own Marine Division. Robert is the Marine of the Year for the 1st Marine Division. It is supposed to be a very nice event with some of the biggest names of the Marine Corp there. So you know what that means?! NEW OUTFIT!!!


I went and got a beautiful dress from Dillard's and I can't wait to wear it. Mom calls it a "party dress"-- so girly!!!

So, I will hopefully be back tomorrow with some more great pics! Have a good Friday!
