Spring is Here!!

I'm so happy that spring is finally here and hopefully we can say goodbye to the cold weather for a while! I absolutely hate the cold weather and am always ready for it to be gone! We've had some stormy weather here lately, but I'll take storms over snow any day!! Although when it randomly snowed here a few weeks ago, it was pretty exciting to see when I woke up and looked out the window! Of course it didn't stick for very long and was all melted away by the afternoon. Such is Alabama weather...

We've been rather busy the last couple of weeks. A few weekends ago a co-worker gave Justin and I free tickets to the Barber Race Track to watch the Indy drivers test their cars the track. It was our first time there and we had a great time! We spent all day Saturday and Sunday at the track and loved seeing and hearing the cars flying by us! We were really excited to see Danica Patrick, but unfortunately she spent more time off the track than on so we didn't see her as much as we hoped to. It was great for us just to get out of the house and doing something out of the norm. Thanks Morgan and John for the tickets, we had a great time!!

We have so many weddings coming up and have stayed busy with showers over the last couple of weeks. One of our best friends is getting married in May and we have had so much fun getting together with them and our friends at their showers. The couple lives in Atlanta so we don't get to see them very much. It's been really fun just hanging out with everyone and seeing people we don't get to see very often.

This past weekend we hung out with some friends Friday night, watched some basketball and played some Wii bowling!! It was only my second time to play a Wii and I must have had some great beginner's luck the first time b/c I was doing so great then!! Well, Friday night I sucked pretty bad and just could not get it right! I definitely need some Wii practice! Saturday we went to a wedding with some friends and had a great time! The bride was one of my college pledge sisters so it was great getting to see my college/sorority friends that I haven't seen in a while.

This weekend we have another shower to go to - a good high school friend of mine is marrying one of Justin's high school friends! They're wedding is in May and unfortunately coincides with another wedding that we will have to attend, but at least we will get to go to their shower. It's crazy how many couples we know that either the wife or husband went to high school with me, and the other went to high school with Justin! Such a small world....

Next weekend is Easter and I'll be driving North for a lingerie shower Friday night, then to spend Saturday night and Easter Sunday with my mom and brother. I'm so excited for next weekend b/c I will get to see a lot of high school girlfriends, plus my family as well!!

The next weekend is A-Day!!! FINALLY!! We are so excited to see what our team has to offer this season. Justin's grandparents will be passing through Birmingham on Friday so we are planning to have dinner with his parents and grandparents Friday night. Saturday will be full of football and tailgating!!

Amazingly, the last weekend of April (right after my birthday, by the way!! The big 2-8!!) I have no plans!! Justin will be going to the beach for our friends bachelor party - yikes!! I have a feeling things are gonna get a little crazy for them! Ah well, isn't that was bachelor parties are for?

Finally, the first weekend of May we will head back down to the beach for another wedding, we'll have the next weekend off, then we'll attend one more wedding the following weekend. It's an exciting time but we'll be so busy for the next month and a half!! I'm sure by the end of May we're gonna need a little vacation of our own!!

Work is going well, just busy and somewhat stressful at times. My friend Nikki is still undergoing her first round of the new chemo treatment. I know it's been rough for her so please continue to keep her in your prayers. One of my other best friends mom just had surgery to remove a (hopefully benign) tumor from her ovary. She is recovering from surgery and the doctor felt very confident that the tumor was benign. I haven't heard anything otherwise, so I am assuming this was the final verdict. Thank you God!!

I hope this finds you all doing well and I hope you are all enjoying the spring weather like I am!! Thanks for reading!!
