Cookies and Milk with Santa

Several nights ago we were able to enjoy Cookies and Milk with Santa at the Elementary school. Jake and Elli had a great time and so did we (I mean....I..) haha.

Rocky Flop

The third Saturday in October has always been one of my favorite things about Alabama football. I love the rivalry between Alabama and Tennessee- (I really love it now that we have won 4 in a row!) But I do also remember the time when we didn't do so hot against the vols! Last years game in Tuscaloosa was a crazy one and luckily we came out on top. When we loaded up for Knoxville this year I could only hope it wouldn't be as close!
Our group waiting to eat at Mellow Mushroom. I was so glad the Reynoldson's went with us!
Jake was excited to try on the Bama helmet

Having fun at the tailgate

I even got to meet up with Lauren

Getting ready to go into the game

I was so excited to see my Megan

Jake got to go on the field and meet Smokey. He was so excited and is still talking about it!

Excited about the win!

Way behind...

Kenzie brought it to my attention that I am a terrible blogger, so I am going to start doing better. Grown up life is a lot harder and busier than I thought it would be! Adam, Abby, and I have been pretty busy lately. Adam's school year is going great and I think he really likes teaching so far. I am loving being a nurse in Paris. I am about to finish up my orientation with my preceptor Virginia and will be 100% on my own with patients starting the 17th. I am very nervous and excited about this at the same time. I was very lucky to get a good preceptor and have enjoyed it a lot. Abby is doing great and growing. She goes back to the vet this Wednesday and I am sure she has gained several more pounds. She has gotten really wild too! Her favorite activities include: chewing up puppy pads, biting her parents, chewing on the brand new coffee table, and trying her best not to potty train :) She is really not that bad, and we love her a lot. I still think a baby would have been a better decision but for some odd reason Adam disagrees :)

I have been to several Alabama games since my last post and those have been really enjoyable. Alabama is doing good this year (minus the terrible loss yesterday!) I was so excited several weeks ago when I was able to meet former Bama QB Brodie Croyle. I was in love with Brodie while he was at Alabama and was so pumped to meet him...Yes Kenzie, the stalking paid off!

Also, Adam celebrated his 23rd birthday on the 28th of September!
I had too work that day which was not fun, but we were still able to eat cake and open presents with my parents and grandparents that night. He has been an awesome husband and I hope he had a great birthday!

Our new girl :)

This past weekend Adam and I got a new little addition to our family... Abby.
She is a full blooded Golden Retriever and we love her to death! Hopefully soon I can get more picture uploaded of her!

I'll take ya for a ride on my big green tractor!

We had several tractors out in the field behind our house last week and Jake was all about them. He loved playing with them and it was a lot of fun for me too!

Our Big Day

Our special day could not have gone any better. It was absolutely perfect. Although I do not remember everything about it, I would not trade it for the world. It was so awesome being close to all of our friends and family. We ended up having around 45o people in attendance to help share this day. The food, music, and everything was awesome. Thank you to all of those who helped make it so wonderful!!

This was the first time we saw each other :)

Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout My Best Friend!

So this blog post is a little over due....
I should have told you about my best friend a long time ago!!
But she just got back from a trip to Africa so no better time to highlight her!!!
My best friend MISSY!!!...aka. Melinda Patterson!

Melinda got to go on a medical mission trip to Africa and brought this awesome wood carving back to me and Adam! It was so cute! You can't see it but it has both of our names on it and our wedding date! We both loved it!
Melinda and i have been good friends since little league softball but became BEST FRIENDS in high school. She was always someone I could depend on to have a good time and was always there for me! She even almost got in a fist fight for my little twirpy self our senior year! Yes, I have a great friend here!
I am so lucky to have her as my friend. are so lucky to get to see these priceless "individual" shots I captured of her :)

Sips and Strokes

For my little "bachelorette" outing my sister planned for us to go to Sips and Strokes. I had never been before and was very excited about it. A lot of my friends already had plans for the evening so 4 of us : Krista, Danielle, Kenzie and myself got to enjoy the fun. We ended up having a great time and were all pleased with our paintings. Thanks for a fun night Krista!

The finished products!

River Fun

There is nothing better than heading to the Tennessee River on a hot summer day! It is definitely one of my families favorite things to do. This year Jake is big enough to ride the Jet Ski and tube so he is enjoying it also!
Ready for some fun in the sun!

Hanging out on the sand bar.

Ready to take off on his own!

Throwing rocks with Sid!

And......the day is over! It was short ended by tired Little Man but we still had a great time!
