What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I am getting really bad at blogging lately...hopefully I will get back to normal soon :)
I'm Loving...Wes and I went to my parents mountain house the other weekend (and i am just now sharing) so he could finish up one of my parents projects and start on the next one!  Here are some pictures from last weekend...
My Dad loves his signs!

Starting project 1,396 at the mountain house....a bridge to the other part of the mountain so you can across.  Eventually there will be parking and other part of the house over there.

I'm loving...that my mom, sister and I are taking a cake decorating class!   Last night was class number 2 where we had to bake the cake, make the icing and then decorate.  It is so much fun!  
Yummy Butter Cream Icing!

So much fun :)

 I'm Loving....this little guy
This is Ben, one of my best friend's babies!  They live in Texas so I have yet to meet him but I just love him!  I sent him some Clemson goodies (the rattle) when she told me she was pregnant.  Then my parents went to Texas last week (So jealous) and met up with Alix and Ben!  This picture was from their visit....isnt he the cutest??

I'm Loving...that I am only working a half day tomorrow and off on Friday.  I am going to the beach with my mother-in-law, sister in law and nephew!  I cant wait to get there....hopefully it will not rain the entire time!
I'm Loving...that I get to work with my little Girl Scouts today! Since it is raining, I have to redo what I wanted to do with them...better get to planning :)

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I cant believe it is already Wednesday!  
I'm Loving...that I get to see my little Girl Scouts this afternoon.  Every Wednesday I get to work with my outreach troop (I usually only get to work with the this is a rare treat!) at a local Elementary School.  This week I have the K5-2nd graders and there are 28 of them! We are going to work on teamwork games and they will be learning what their personal skills are. :)
I'm loving... that my Tigers finally won their first tournament game since 1997 (really didn't know it has been that long...glad that streak is over).  We were one of the "lucky" teams that had to play in the first four games of the NCAA tournament to be able to play in the bracket.  We won big last night and now we will play tomorrow against West Virgina!
Grant after making a basket and getting fouled last night!
I heart Stitt!!
This wasn't from last nights game...but I am liking our new coach! :)
 I'm Loving.... Ok sorry but it is another basketball post.  I am just excited it is time for 

I love filling out my bracket and waiting to see how I actually did with my guesses.  I know a lot about sports, but my knowledge is limited to the ACC and SEC conferences.  So it is really guesses when I fill out my bracket!! I would show you mine but it is on a website and haven't figured out how to share :)

I'm Loving...that Wes is working at my parents Mountain House this weekend.  We haven't been there in so long and I am looking forward to spending some time there!!
Far away and this picture doesn't do this place justice!
My Dad admiring the view!!
I'm Loving...That Wes's sister is having another baby this summer and she found out last week that it will be another boy!! So excited to have two nephews.  As Emily (my sister-in-law) said, there will be one for me to hold and one for Wes to play with.  Look how cute her first son, Wyatt, is...cant wait to meet our new nephew!!

Weekend Update

Well, the weekend didn't start out that great.  I had a long meeting at work Friday that was a bit stressful...I hate to end a work week that way!!  Friday night, Wes and I stayed home and was just lazy instead of going out with our friends.  He was getting up early Saturday morning to head to North Carolina so that he could remodel his sister's kitchen so that was another reason to stay in Friday night!  Since I went to sleep so early on Friday, I was up at like 6:30 on Saturday!  Why do I struggle weekdays to be at work at 8:30 but on weekends I am up ready to go so early?? I had a busy agenda for Saturday because I was hosting a bridal shower for my friend Sarah on that meant my house needed a major cleaning!!  I started working on that and then Heather called me around 8:30 to chat.  After a few minutes she decided that she would come visit me in Greenwood and help me run errands for the shower. She made my day!!!  So that meant I had to hurry and clean everything before she got there because who wants to clean when one of your bffs come to visit??
She made the hour drive and got to my house around time has changed from a few years ago when we were just waking up at 10:30!!
We went to pick up Sarah's flowers and man was that interesting.  I ordered flowers for a centerpiece (that she could take home afterwards) and it was very pretty but wasnt displayed how I wanted it to be.  It was in a green tuberware type container and I wanted them in a vase!!  We doctored them up and look how pretty they are!!

 After the flower delimma we went to Old Navy and then lunch at one of my favorite places in Greenwood...

After lunch we headed over to some cute boutiques in Uptown Greenwood.  If anyone is familiar with my small would be shocked to see these great stores here.  Heather sure will have to read her post to see the great coat she found!!

Then it was time for some relaxing at my house while Heather was looking at my recipes I was watching my Tigers play basketball!  It was a close game to the Tar Heels if only we could have finished out the game!  Ugh I really dislike the Tar Heels!

Back to getting ready for the shower...Heather and then went grocery shopping and starting getting some of the food ready....

My sister was coming into town for the shower and stayed the night with me!  So we went out to eat at Mig's and then headed over to her friend Jeff's house and look what he has!!!!!!!

5 week old puppies!! They were so cute!!!

Now on to Sunday...the shower went great and about 25ish people came!  The theme of the shower (my favorite one) is to bring a recipe, the dry ingredients to make it and the dish to put it in.  Sarah lucked up with all those recipes!  The other hostesses (Kristina and Alison) and I got her a recipe book and we added more of our favorites along with the ones she got at the shower and gave that to her at the end.  All in was a great shower!  Here are some pic  (I know this post is picture overload...oh well! :))
Enough food more of Sarah, her guests and ALL of her presents!!
Her new recipe book with everyone's recipe from the shower!!
The Bride with all but one of her bridesmaids! (Lindsey, Alison, Sarah, Me, and Kristina)
Once everyone left, Wes pulled in from North Carolina!  What a great weekend with some of my favorite people! :)
