We were able to spend a lot of time with our family
over the last few days!

Thursday was hd's mom's birthday
so the whole family went to Carrabba's for dinner!
We surprised his mom with tickets to
which comes to Atlanta October 20th!
She was very surprised and excited!

Saturday we got to have lunch with my parents,
(who have been out of town for the last week)
my sister and Josh, and Josh's uncle and dad's girlfriend!
-of course we met at Glenn's!-
So that was nice being able to see all of them!

That night we were able to go to Atlanta
{verrry last minute}
to see hd's brother and his fiance's new place!
They are moving into Twelve in downtown Atlanta
and will be living on the twenty first floor!
The view of Atlanta from their room is amazing!!!!
We then went back to jd's current place and made homemade pizza's
and visited for a while!

Sunday turned into a very low key day with all the rain,
so we spent the day inside watching movies!

Overall, it was a wonderful weekend with our loved ones!

Coblie Caillat released her sophomore album yesterday
titled Breakthrough. I was definitely looking forward
to this, and went right after work to make the
purchase! I am very pleased with the album,
although it is a lot different from her first.

the deluxe version is a couple of dollars more, but includes five extra songs

With all the exciting events that have happened in the last
two months, means lots of shopping and presents! :)
The first exciting event was hd's birthday!
-the big 26!-
His fun gift will be the new HD Platinum 32GB Zune!
The reason for saying will is because it has yet to come out.
So once it is released, that will be his late birthday present!

Next came my graduation.
I decided I wanted the new Generation 32GB iPod Touch,
which of course has also not been released.
Therefore, I will be receiving my late graduation present
once it hits stores!

Next came our Anniversary!
I still can't believe it's been 4 years!
So this weekend we went to the Tanger Outlets
and hd surprised me with a new Coach purse!!!!
I've never owned one before, and I actually just purchased
my first one in Mexico!

He then added to my collection on Friday!
How sweet is he?! ;)

As for his Anniversary present,
well he still hasn't fully decided what he wants,
so once he does, he can get his!

We're Back!!

We arrived back in Conyers about 3 on Thursday.
We decided not to go west after docking that morning
for several reasons...
hd ended up with a stomach bug - no fun
I now have an awful cold
we missed Sophie terribly!!
and while we were gone we got wind that my
brother-in-law's mom was in a horrible
head on collision and was in ICU
so we thought it would be in our best interest
to head home!!

On a lighter note...
the cruise was amazing!
We had such a wonderful time and the weather was great!

In Progreso, we went to the Corona Beach Party
which included an open bar, fresh water pool,
beach chairs, chips and salsa, music and beach games!
In Cozumel, we went downtown and did some shopping
which was a lot of fun
-minus the 100 degree weather and NO wind!-

Overall it was a wonderful week,
and some much needed time together!!
We are already planning our next one!! :)

Four Years

Cause everyone that sees you, always wants to know you
And everyone that knows you, always has a smile
You're a standing ovation after years of waiting for a chance to finally shine
Everyone calls you amazing
I just call you mine

first weekend together

night before he left for the peace corps

day he came home from the peace corps!!


Baby, I love your love the most...

"Love could be set in motion quickly, but true love needed time to grow into something strong and enduring. Love was, above all, about commitment and dedication and a belief that spending years with a certain person would create something greater than the sum of what the two could accomplish separately. Only time, however, could show whether you'd been accurate in your judgment." -true believer

We leave tonight!

We are pulling out between 6-7 to make our
way down to Mobile, Alabama!
Where it looks like we might just be sleeping
in our car!
(okay maybe we will get a hotel room!)

Tomorrow we board our ship at noon
and we are set to sail at 4!!

Saturday, August 15: Mobile, AL
Sunday, August 16: Fun Day At Sea
Monday, August 17: Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico
Tuesday, August 18: Cozumel, Mexico
Wednesday, August 19: Fun Day At Sea
Thursday, August 20: Mobile, AL

Be home Thursday, unless we are feeling crazy
and plan on going west! ;)

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to the Baby Girl!!

Today is the little girl's first birthday!

I originally had planned to have some sort of a
birthday party, but that seemed to fall through
when we realized we'd be leaving for our cruise the same night.
And since she ended up being sick last weekend,
I'm extremely glad I hadn't planned one for the weekend before!

Now weighing in at 7lbs she is just as much fun as she was
the day I brought her home!
There is definitely never a dull moment with her!
