Easter Weekend

So this month is an extremely busy month for us, with pretty much no down-time at all!! This past weekend I drove to Decatur for the lingerie shower/bachelorette party of one of my best friends growing up. We have been friends for years and years and I'm so excited that she is getting married next month! There were about 15 girls there and we all had a great time!! We had tons of food and drinks and Emily got some awesome gifts! We then proceeded to go out to a bar, one of the few in Decatur. I saw some friends from the past, which is always fun. I think everyone had a really fun night and most importantly, Emily had a great time!

Saturday I went to my mom's to spend the night with her and my brother. We ate hamburgers and watched a movie, and just hung out like the old days. I cherish those moments now more than ever/c they are so few and far between. The three of us don't often get to spend quality time with just us. Our family has been through a lot and the three of us have had to lean on each other through so much. They are my rock and my foundation and I love them more than anything.

Sunday morning the three of us went to church and then out to my grandmothers for lunch. We had such yummy food and I got to see the newest addition to our family, Katelyn Olivia!! She is absolutely beautiful!! I think I hogged her the entire time but she was so sweet it was hard to let her go! I love babies so much and hopefully one day God will bless me with one of my very own! We had Easter dinner with Justin's parents, and I amazed myself that I was able to eat as much as I did. I will say I over-did it just a bit!! Oh well, it's not everyday you get some home cookin'!!

On another note, one of my best friends from home had to say good-bye to her husband this past weekend, as he is going to Iraq to serve our country. I have expressed to her how I can't imagine what she is going through - I imagine I would feel extreme pride in my husband, but also extreme sorrow. She is an amazingly strong woman and I admire her greatly. Please keep her and her husband in your prayers, as he is fighting for OUR freedom.

Nikki is still undergoing her chemo treatment, and so far the doctor's have said that her tumor marker is down, which is always a good sign!! I hope that her body is responding well to the treatment, but she really won't know for sure until her next scan. She did have a bridal shower recently, which I know is so exciting and so much fun!!

Anyways, the weather is a little crazy here as usual - kinda chilly then brutally warm!! This weekend we'll be in T-Town for the A-Day game so I really hope that the weather cooperates!! Last year it was beautiful but the wind was so chilly where we were sitting. I only made it through the 3rd quarter and my chill bumps had had enough!! I am really looking forward to the game, as ESPN will be there and our coach has challenged the fans to pack the place out!! I can't wait to see Bryant-Denny again!

I hope everyone had a great Easter and hopefully you were all able to visit with your families!! Have a great rest of the week, and thanks for reading!! Your comments are always fun to get so feel free to leave one!
