I Love My Life!

Today's mood: feeling genuinely happy and lucky and blessed...
Is it Monday all over again?? Really, this weekend FLEW by, but this was the best weekend filled with tons of friends and family, and I am so grateful for a fun-filled engagement party thrown by four fabulous hostesses!!
Friday night, a few of us started our weekend off by heading to Mafiaoza’s for pizza and beer… and since it was so nice and breezy, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather! Luckily, Jeff and I called it an early evening since we had his family coming in town bright and early the next morning.
Saturday, I ran errands around town and got my morning run in before our company got into town—we took them to our favorite Local Taco for lunch since they had never been, and then drove around Nashville since we had some free time to relax.
That evening, we got ready and headed downtown for our engagement party, which was more perfect than I could’ve ever imagined… a full post to follow once my lovely ladies give me pictures--since I wasn't allowed to be camera paparazzi all night, but here are a few pictures just to tease ;)

Our little family... my Mom, Brian and Jennifer, Jeff and I, Kaye, and my Dad
Me with My Bridesmaids!! This made me so happy they were all able to be there!! OXOX
Sunday, we relaxed and enjoyed breakfast/brunch from Star Bagel and then said goodbye to Jeff’s family. While he stayed home recooperating from all the fun, I went with my parents to take in the exhibits at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.
Mom and I walking in the museum
We got to see Chihuly’s blown glass exhibit AND the Golden Age of Couture Fashion Couture exhibit… so up our alley, but my dad was just a trooper and loved entertaining us. We had so much fun and if you’re a local, you must see this before the exhibit is gone next month—great for a girls night!!
Enjoying the GORGEOUS weather
Afterwards, we headed to Taco Mamacita {my dad's favorite destiantion these days} for some afternoon tacos and margaritas and then went home to relax to get ready to tackle the work week! Happy Monday friends!!!
P.S. it's ONLY 5 days until football time in Tennessee--woo hoo!!

After our party and fireworks show {haha!}, a big group of us headed to midtown to Corner Pub and closed the bar down!! Impressive, right, since this NEVER happens anymore... It was like we were in college all over again and we had a blast, just like we always do! I swear, we meet some VERY interesting people wherever we go... LOL.
