Lacey and Kyle's Wedding

My friend Lacey got married a couple of weeks ago, and Brad got to come home from Yorktown to go to the wedding with me! I didn't think that he was going to get to come so I was really excited. The wedding was beautiful, and Lacey worked really hard to add a lot of really personal and unique touches to the ceremony and reception. Here is a picture I took at the reception!

Christina's Bachelorette Party

Christina and Dustin, two of our friends from A&M, are getting married next month. This weekend, I attended Christina's Bachelorette Party in Austin, TX. It was a really cool of the most original bachelorette parties I had ever been to. All of the guests were split into two teams. The afternoon started off with a game of flag football on the capital grounds. Then, after showering and getting dolled up, we met at Rudy's Bar-B-Que for dinner. Next, we went to play Bingo at Bingo-12 near down town Austin. I had never been to a Bingo hall before so I was really surprised when we walked in and there were so many people....and it was REALLY REALLY quiet. The only thing you could hear was people dotting their cards and the announcer every few minutes calling out a new number. I got 30 cards x 5 games for only $10. Pretty cheap for a couple of hours of fun. After Bingo we went back to the hotel and got ready to head to 6th street. We couldn't get a cab big enough for all of us so both Stephanies, myself, and Sarah road in one of those carts pulled by a bicycle. We felt so sorry for this guy, but he said it was no big deal, and he got us there FAST. He didn't stop at any traffic lights, and he took short-cuts through several parking garages. There were a lot of cool bars on 6th street, but my favorite was has a glass dance floor. There is an aquarium below it full of fish, sharks, and was AWESOME! Anyway, I think we all had a good was definitely a memorable last fling before the ring for Christina!

Jet Skiing at Lake Marble Falls

Brad and I went to Marble Falls this weekend to spend some time with his family. We had a great time swimming, tubing, jet skiing, and riding in the boat. Brad and I had a lot of fun on the jet ski, but he flipped it so many times that now I am covered in bruises. Even though I am sore today...I still want to learn how to do a good 360! It was really nice getting to see everyone...most especially Christopher Joseph!! He has gotten so big since the last time we saw him. He looks a lot like his dad now when he smiles. We also found out that C.J. and Fallon got ENGAGED!!! They are really excited and are still deciding on a date. Fallon said she wanted to shoot for next fall. I will keep you posted with any new details that we find out. Anyway, we had a really good time this weekend, and we want to go back soon.

My cousin Meredith is really mean to her step sister and small children... once I think I saw her kick a small animal...I think that she is probably the one responsible for making the birds crap on my car...she would do something like that just to be hateful...I also think that she moves my phone at night so that it is missing in the morning....can't she just pick on someone her own size...and by the way...I think she wears short shorts that let her cheeks show...just saying.

Happy Independence Day!

Brad and I spent the fourth with family in Milam, TX. There was so much good food, and we had a lot of fun. Some of the highlights include watermelon, paddle boats, and four wheelers. We also helped my dad at his deer lease and went swimming at Red Hill Lake. I hadn't been there since I was a little girl so it was cool getting to go back to our old watering hole! We were really excited to get to visit my Grannie...we hadn't been to her house since Thanksgiving! July 4th is a really important holiday to her and our family because so many of our family members have served in the armed forces. I am very thankful for the freedoms that we have in this country, and I hope that everyone had a happy independence day!

Here's a picture of us with our Sasha bear...she's getting so big!

Grannie in her Flag shirt and hat...Isn't she just the cutest?

Happy Independence Day!! :)
