Vacay in Wilmington

We spent a few days relaxing in Wilmington, NC, my hometown, before Nicole's wedding weekend began. We flew down Wednesday and stayed with my grandparents. This was T's 3rd trip to the area, but the past two times we've been, she was very little. So, this trip, I was so excited to spend some time there with friends and family, and take her to all my favorite places. The weather was really crappy (thank you Tropical Storm Andrea!), so we didn't make it to the beach. Hopefully next trip.

 Anyway, we had a great weekend, and it's always sad to leave, especially since I don't know when we'll visit again. Thank you to my grandparents for letting us take over your home for a few days! And, to their dog, Hunter, thank you for putting up with Tinley chasing you everywhere and taking over your doggie door. :o) We miss you guys already!

She's the best traveling partner!

My best friend's wedding

On Saturday, June 8th, my best friend, Nicole, got married! I had the honor and pleasure of being her MOH for her special day and it could not have been any more perfect! The entire weekend was so much fun!

 I wish her and her new hubby, Brandon, many, many years of happiness! Here are some pics from the day. (Please ignore the quality, they're all from my iPhone!)

Rehearsal dinner Friday night (Ignore T's dazed look, she was exhausted!)
