Friday Favorites

I haven't linked up for Friday Favorites in too long! Linked up with Andrea, Narci, and Erika today! 

Words can't describe how much fun I'm having being at home this Summer with Emma. I was at an IB conference this week (Tues-Thurs) and so she was at camp Mimi this week (thank God for my mom!). Here are some fun moments from this week. 

1. I never want to forget that giggle!

2. Love seeing my dad with Emma and Collier. They sure love their BaBa (from Father's Day dinner)

3. Gavin, you are so special because you are my best friend's son. It's hard to describe seeing your best friend (from age 5) become a mom. Such a special time for the Reynolds family! 

4. I've been watching House Of Cards when I have time lately. 

5. I finished this book last week at the beach. I'm not usually into self-help books but my neighbor invited me to a neighborhood mom book club in July and this is the book they chose. I really liked Brene's writing and had some good take-aways from it. 
6. Coffee. Having not had to get myself ready for work in weeks I've needed all the coffee this week! Fortunately the conference I'm at has provided coffee all day every day this week and even gave us this cup at the beginning of the week to feed the need. 

7. My friend, Katherine, was here all week until she left for Alaska/Canada for a month before going back to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She came over on Monday to see Emma and had some fun with her on snapchat. Too funny! We are gonna miss her. We don't get to see her nearly enough. She's living the outdoor dream in Jackson. 

8. Playdates. This is Emma with her buddy, Thomas, who turns 1 on the 4th of July! Laura is a friend from high school and is in my Supper Club.

9. Love that we have a park in our neighborhood and my FAVORITE is seeing how much Emma loves the swings and slide.

Maxey Wedding

This past weekend we were in Athens celebrating the marriage of Christy Reimann and Andrew Maxey. We had the best time celebrating these two! Christy and I have been friends since 6th grade. Tommy and Andrew have been friends since elementary school. Christy and Andrew went to UGA with me and we are so happy for them to spend their lives together! Just a warning I took a LOT of pictures. We had a wonderful weekend with lots of activities. 

Friday morning we had a luncheon at my favorite, The Last Resort, for all the bridesmaids and mothers. The food was fantastic. I got my favorite fried green tomato sandwich with a salad and their vidalia bacon dressing. YUM

After the luncheon a few of us headed to TAME to get our hair blown out for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal was at The Graduate and we then headed to The Georgian for the rehearsal dinner. It was a lovely evening with lots of speeches describing just how great Christy and Andrew are. The Maxeys put on a beautiful night. The food was delicious and the space was perfect for the group. 

We went out for a little bit that night after the dinner before calling it a night because we had a long day ahead of us for wedding day! 

We had to be at The Graduate to get ready at 8am. I was done with my hair/makeup by 10am so just hung out with the girls while everyone else finished up getting ready. We took pictures on North Campus before heading back to the hotel for the wedding. The ceremony was in a room upstairs with exposed brick and really pretty light fixtures. The reception was all down stairs. They had one room with the buffet and a few tables and the main room had the dance floor, bars, and tables to eat. It was beautifully decorated! Christy picked such simple florals that looked stunning! Christy was a beautiful bride with such a unique dress (it was the color blush). The wedding was such fun and we danced the night away! Hairy Dawg made an appearance as well. Christy and Andrew are in Jamaica now for their honeymoon and I hope they are enjoying the relaxation!
