Weekend Rewind!

Hey y'all! I hope that everyone had a great weekend :)

Friday night I got home from work and Steven told me that he had invited my cousins Denver, Dalton and Noah over. Everyone came over around 7 and our house was filled with laughter until we went to bed!! We had such a good time just hanging out in our living room. I don't know if I have shared this before, but I have 13 cousins, five ( and one on the way! ) second cousins! My mom was one of eight children so there are a whole LOT of us!

Saturday morning my cousin Josie graduated from George Walton Academy! This is where I went to school and were Steven I met.....back in k-5! I told Steven that other than our wedding (and engagement) graduating from high school was pretty much the best day of my life. I remember walking back down that isle with my diploma in hand thinking FREEDOM!!!!!! I can also vividly describe the outfit that I wore as well and the party afterward. It was a white strapless dress from Express with a black band and button around the top. I had matching white Steve Madden slide on kitten heel sandals and I had on a pearl necklace that I received for graduation. GWA is a private school and we were not allowed to have strapless dresses for graduation. This was such a ridiculous rule!! My mom loved that dress so much that she bought it for me anyway and at Baccalaureate the week before, I wore a black sweater tied around my shoulders - such a rule breaker haha! Also, the green swamp punch at the after party got me..... In the picture with Josie on stage, there is a football banner that reads "Football State Champions 2003", that was my senior year!! GWA hasn't won a state championship since then! Ok, ok, enough about high school!

After graduation we had lunch at my aunt and uncles house, then we headed over to Cycle World to buy a helmet for me!! Don't you think that this is the perfect accessory with Lilly Pulitzer? They had a metallic ruby red helmet but it was too big for me :( so I settled for this matte black one! Still trying to figure out where I'm going to put my monogram on it!

That evening we headed over to Carey and Ben's for a "last supper" in their old house! We had a great time just hanging out!! Steven and I headed home around 10 and watched The Intern before going to bed. Who has seen this movie?? We LOVED it! My favorite part was the deleting of the email scene!

Sunday we cleaned and went to the grocery and that was really about it! We are going vegetarian this week for our meals, so expect a full re-cap on that next week along with the recipes I used!
