Monday, April 20


So I'm back from my super busy weekend! It was so much fun ya'll- I really miss my college girls. Sometimes, I feel like a different person around them- is that weird? Oh well.

Shower on Friday went great- there were probably around 30ish people that came. We had a barbeque, played a game, and then opened presents! Suzanne & Charlie got some really nice stuff! It was really great seeing all my Shandon peeps :o)

The Bridesmaids that came to the shower.

Me, Megan & Renae- My small group leaders sophomore year.

Tricia, Me, Suzanne (the Bride!), Kristin & Kaci- my bible study girls from last semester!

I left on Saturday morning to head up to Greenville with Natasha, got there around 1, changed, got ready for Shannon's shower. It ended up going really well- I was technically a hostess for that one. (I did the invitations, duh.) Natasha had a really fun game- all questions about how well we all knew Shannon... I did okay- I only missed 5 out of 16. Some of them were pretty specific! We stayed the night there, and Shannon showed us where the wedding & reception is going to be. Greenville is such a fun place, even though I only saw a little bit, I can't wait for her wedding weekend!

Shannon opening all her presents!

All the ladies at the end of the shower!

After all that, we drove home Sunday. What a long day. I will have to say- I took the best nap EVER when I got home. There's nothing like coming home to your own bed!

And let me say I am SO EXCITED to have gotten my first blogger award! Emily on From the Land of Cotton (Fellow Gamecock Gal) gave it to me!!! I am super jazzed!

Okay, so the goals of this award are:

1. As a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.
2. To seek the reasons why we all love blogging.
3. Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.
4. Don't forget to mention the person who gives you the award.
5. Answer the award's question by writing the reason why you love blogging.
6. Tag and distribute the award to as many people as you like.
7. Don't forget to notify the award receivers and put their links in your post

So why do I love blogging? I'm going to have to credit my friend Jenna for that- it started innocently enough- who could find the cutest backgrounds! ha, but seriously... I love reading about everyone's life- it makes me feel a little more normal. I love sharing my thoughts and feelings with any & everyone who feels like reading about me! I also love checking out all the cute pretty stuff on everyone's blogs! I've encouraged some of my Cola people to start them so I can keep up with their lives on a more daily basis!

I'm going to give this award to Jenna at The Chic & Sassy Southern Newlywed, My favorite Gap Gal at KikiBee & Angela at The Preppy Polka Dot. I love reading these ladies' thoughts!

Don't forget to tell us why you love blogging, girls, and tag some others to join in on the fun! Thanks again Emily!!!!!!!!

Gus wanted to make an appearance this evening- He's a pill. A Cute one though :o)
