Just Can't Get Enough

Monday, November 7, 2011

What a whirlwind weekend...I don't know how we managed to do so much in such a short amount of time, but it was a blast--yes, I am still tired from all the fun, but I'll recover sometime soon!
Friday, we headed straight to Knoxville for Julie and Jon's engagement party, hosted by my BFF Bev and other fabulous friends--they did a fantastic job and we had a great time. They went with a fall theme with BBQ sliders, corn on a stick, homestyle side dishes, cake balls, and other yummy appetizers...not to mention the smores for outside fire pit fun! It was great to see Jon and Julie's families come together to start off their wedding festivities and we can't wait for what's in store...

Picture of me and the hubby...I couldn't help it, I just had to dress up ;)
 The Blazer Brigade...and Christian, because he didn't want to put his on--LOL
 There are no words
 Putting us to work...we were in charge of corn on a stick!
 The setup...didn't they do a great job??
 Meg, me, and Lauren
 Joanna and Lauren...love these ladies
 Our threesome picture...as usual
 Jeff holding Meghan's little man Luke...most adorable and laid back child ever!!
{and yes, I totally almost cried thinking he'll be holding Little Miss in a few short months}
 The hostesses with the bride...Suze, Pam, Julie, Joanna, and Bev
Saturday morning, we headed back to Nashville. Jeff and the boys played golf while I headed to Cool Springs to knock out major Christmas shopping...and boy did I succeed! I am telling you--the early bird gets the worm and the good deals--I am so proud of just how  much I am getting done, but with our Hilton Head trip for Thanksgiving, NYC trip in December, and nursery planning, I've got to be on top of my game to get it all done in a timely manner. No stress needed! Fortunately, Mom just happened to be at the mall the same time I was so we met up for a little shopping and scored major adorables from Janie and Jack {my new baby addiction} and Gymboree.
However, due to our late night Friday and shopping, I had to bail out and didn't get to meet our friends out to celebrate birthday fun...I was just too tired and knew I needed to take it easy. So we hunkered down and ordered pizza, and watched the Bama/LSU football field goal game and went to bed.
Sunday, we met up with Candice for our Christmas pictures...Percy Warner Park turned out to be the perfect place for an afternoon shoot and I cannot wait to show off our pictures once she works her magic--seriously lucky to have a BFF as a photog ;)
A fun, but tiring weekend nonetheless. So much to get accomplished this week, too...we're ordering the nursery furniture {inspiration post to come!}, Junior League meetings, Christmas Village with Mom, and 2 very important birthday celebrations this weekend...already bracing myself! Happy Monday...now back to work!
