Or maybe I should say all our BOXES are packed! I can't believe that it is already time to move to Panama City. We have had a lot of fun times saying goodbye to our friends that live in Auburn (or close to Auburn), but I don't think that it has hit us yet that we are going to be 4 hours away from these sweet people.
Last Tuesday night we ate at Amsterdam's with the Gilmore's, the Bauer's, and the St. Clair's.
On Saturday, I went to a baby shower for our good friends, Elena and Adam Robertson and Baby Reese. Wesley couldn't go because he was at the lake for a party for Anthony Cain, but it was so much fun to get to be with this crowd! I LOVE baby showers and was excited to see all of the presents for baby Reese!
Wesley and I picked up double-doozie cookie cakes for our co-workers as a way to say "Thanks" for all that they have done for us. Our co-workers have taught us so much and have been there for us during major milestones in our lives. We are really going to miss them!
Thursday night we are meeting friends at Niffer's for our last goodbye! My last day of work is Saturday, and then we are headed to Dothan to finish loading up some furniture that we have stored there. Then it is off to PC early Sunday morning to get unpacked in our new home! I didn't realize how hard it is to leave a town full of people that you love! We are really going to miss it here, but are looking forward to all the God has in store for us in Panama City!
Last night I drove to Birmingham to celebrate the birthdays of two of my best friends from high school, Maggie and Julie. We ate dinner at an Italian restaurant called Mafiaoza's. It was so much fun to catch up with everyone in person.
Maggie and her husband, Blake, are expecting a baby girl in December, and it was so exciting to finally get to see her baby bump!
Earlier today, my mom sent me an e-mail about the importance of having girl friends in your life. It made me so thankful to still be so close to this same group of girls who have known me since I was in the 8th grade. I have been so blessed to find great girl friends in Auburn, too! My prayer is the Lord will continue to bless me with a great group of friends in Panama City.
Wesley and I hosted our first party last night. We had an wedding shower for our good friends, Anthony Cain and Kelly Sarama. I was nervous about how everyone was going to fit into our tiny house, but it all worked out and we all had a good time. Wesley helped me so much by cleaning and running last minute errands, but I still wasn't exactly sure how exactly I was going to get all of the food prepared in time as well as get the house ready for company...so I called in the troops! Amy and Mom were happy to drive up and help! They brought brownies and chess squares with them.
Wesley and I got married March 13, 2010 and moved to Panama City in August for him to start CRNA school. I am a nurse in the NICU at Gulf Coast Medical Center. I am the middle daughter of two wonderful parents and feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family and sweet friends.
