Wesley and I went to Orlando this past weekend for the wedding of our good friends, Bethany and William Gannon! We rode down with Richard and Alisa Jones on Thursday night so that we could be there for the whole weekend. The bridesmaid luncheon was on Friday afternoon at the wedding director's home. We were served chicken salad, strawberry-pretzel salad, and a croissant. YUM!

Friday evening was the rehearsal at the church and the rehearsal dinner followed at the Citrus Club. The food was delicious and the view from the Citrus Club was gorgeous!

The wedding on Saturday was so sweet and very emotional. Bethany's dad is a Baptist preacher and did the ceremony himself. It was great standing up on stage watching the two say their vows. I pray that they have a lifetime of happiness! Here are some pics from the reception!

To my mom on Mother's Day....

I truly belive that you are the best mom in the enitre world! You do so much for your family, and never ask for anything in return! Being a mother of 3 girls is a full time job, and you do it so well.

When I was young you went on EVERY school field trip with me because I was so scared that someone would throw up on the bus and I would panic! As a child, after bathtime, I remember you would sit Indian style on the floor, I would cover your lap with a towel, and I would lay my head in your lap while you blew my hair dry. You woke me up nearly every morning for high school by scratching my back (not yelling and slamming doors like most moms), and then blew my hair dry while I put my make-up on. When I came home from college you always cooked homecooked meals and had chicken salad (my favorite) waiting on me when I got there. You spent nearly 8 hours a day for 8 months planning my wedding which made being a bride so much fun and not stressful at all, and then as wedding gifts came to the house, you wrote a detailed description of each gift, the name and address of the gift-giver, and sometimes even a sentence that I should include in the thank you note!

In the 24 years of my life, not a day has gone by the I didn't know that you love me! You have also been a perfect example to me of what a Christian wife looks like.

Not too have birthed 3 children (who are all grown) and you still look like this!!!!!!!!!! Are you even REAL????

Bethany's Bachelorette Party

This weekend we had Bethany's Bachelorette party at Lindsay's lake house on Lake Mitchell. It was my first night away from Wesley since we have been married, but it was so nice to have 24 hours of girl time! I got to the lake around 9:30 am on Saturday and met up with everyone. Unfortunately the sky was a little overcast and gray, but it didn't stop us from having a great time!

We spent a lot of time sitting on the dock and talking, had Bethany's lingere shower and played games, ate a TON of great food, rode jet-skis, and watched "It's Complicated".

It was such a fun getaway! In just two short weeks, we will be in Orlando for the wedding. Looking forward to being with all of these girls again!
