Life Lately

I'm blogging? I know, I'm shocked myself. :)

Life around here has been quite busy lately and by lately I mean since March.. and by busy I mean dealing with morning sickness and exhaustion for 3 months followed by me trying to figure out to be a productive person of society while a small person takes over my body.  Every time the thought of sitting myself down to enjoy a quiet moment of blogging comes to mind, I usually forget about it 2 minutes later.. darn pregnancy brain.

I decided the best way to get back up to speed was with a recap post of the last few months (aka a photo dump post), so get comfy.

March. Weddings, more weddings, wedding showers, birthdays oh.. and a positive pregnancy test. Yup, that about sums up the month of March!

At the beginning of the month we drove to Atlanta for one of my sweet high school friends weddings.  It was a much needed reunion with friends I hadn't seen since Bobby I got married! How sad!


high school reunion! <3 them!


the most delicious and amazing cake, ever.


Amy looked so beautiful and I was so happy to finally meet her husband!

The same night ended with a fun wedding shower for two sweet friends of ours, Todd & Julia which brought with it some much needed catch up time with college friends we hadn't seen in quite a while either! (One of the reasons I love wedding season so much!)



that's love right there.

At some point we celebrated my birthday but I don't have any evidence of that so I could be lying.. can't remember (see what I mean about pregnancy brain?).  I even asked Bobby what we did and he couldn't remember either.. we have serious issues.

A few weeks later we were off to New Orleans for my husbands best friends wedding.  I had never been to New Orleans before and we had the best time catching up with our friends and celebrating the newlyweds! (so sorry.. the TWO photo's I have are iPhone pics..) I think I took more with our point and shoot camera but I'm not really sure where it is.. :)

the cathedral where Kate and Drew got married! gorgeous.

at the beautiful reception!

Fast forward a few days later to Bobby's birthday and SUPRISE! We're pregnant. Happy Birthday Bobby! :) About 30 minutes later, we drove to the hospital to meet our friends sweet little girl.To say it was a little overwhelming to be in the maternity wing of a hospital right after finding out you are pregnant would be a huge understatement.


April was a blur due to morning sickness and complete exhaustion but I was able to make it home for my brother's last high school lax tournament and senior prom (tear)!
obsessing over the zoom lens my parents neighbor let me borrow.
  

baby joe doin' his thang.





May. Mid-May we attended Todd and Julia's wedding in Nashville (we were so excited not to travel)! Only a few of our close friends knew we were prego at that point, so unfortunately (yeah right) I had to buy a new dress... :)

At the end of the month we traveled back home to Atlanta to finally tell our families we were pregnant (and for my brothers high school graduation...) :)! What a relief it was to finally share the news with them and not have to hide it every time I was on the phone with my mom!

Telling my family...
cheers to the graduate!!
opening her "late mothers day gift"

confused for a moment as to why we bought her mini boots that clearly don't fit her feet...

wait a minute...

it's blurry but a good one. finally gets it!

Telling my husband's family...

"oh what a cute picture!" (so confused)

still trying to figure it out..

then it clicked. smiles all around!


A few days after, we got together with our Young Life high school friends to share the news with them as well.  We made it into a game and it was so funny to see their faces when they finally figured out what the hang man puzzle read! Priceless!











June.  Two weeks after our announcement we found out we were having a boy (YAY!) and around that time Bobby started the recording process for his debut album and although that doesn't sound like a lot going on.. it was. June was nuts but it ended with a much needed vacation for the both of us so no complaints here!


Our vacation started with a road trip up to New Jersey for a wedding Bobby was hired to play at.  To say these people were awesome would be an understatement.  I was a little hesitant about tagging along to one of my husbands gigs (someones wedding none-the-less) where I don't know a soul and he is occupied the entire time, but they invited me to come along and it was either that, or sit in our hotel room the whole day.  I am so glad I went! We had a blast and such a testament to what we are doing as a family with music.  I was blown away with the encouraging feedback he received from the bride and groom and their guests.



salty caramel ice cream. don't mind if i do.



the groom practicing his vows before the ceremony. so sweet.



here comes the bride! and her dad with the most amazing stash i have ever seen.





first dance.
post wedding. a success!


our hotel for the weekend. swanky.
room key. how awesome is that!?
the lobby. super old school. 
then we were off to reception #2, the bonfire. :) SO fun.

July. After the New Jersey gig, we headed south to Holden Beach, NC to spend the week with Bobby's family.  It is sad to admit but somehow, this is the first actual vacation I've been on with his family... ever! We had a blast AND my sister was even able to come down for a day and a half with my niece and nephew whom I cannot get enough of.

bff's






















July 10th we celebrated our 3 year anniversary. <3 Our anniversary fell on a Wednesday this year, lame, so we had a yummy dinner complete with Gigi's cupcakes that night and saved the actual celebration for that Friday night.  We met up after work at Yazoo Brewery (which wasn't as much of a bummer as I thought it would be for me..) where we have had a lot of Friday afternoon date nights, followed by dinner at Music City Flats which was incredible.  They knew it was our anniversary and provided us the best service I have had at a restaurant in a long time.  AND they gave us free dessert! I was one happy prego lady!

So that's what we've been up to these last few months which brings me to last weekend where my sisters and sister-in-law's threw me a shower back home.  I'll be back with a separate post on that once I get the pics but it was such a beautiful and sweet shower.  This little guy and I felt very loved and so very thankful!

Happy Friday my friends!
