Deanna and Ben's Wedding

On Saturday, Deanna and Ben tied the knot.  Deanna is my oldest and one of my dearest friends. We met in Choir in the 8th grade and roomed together in college.  She and Ben have been a couple for 15 years.  This was THE best wedding ever.

It started with a little hair and makeup at T. Wesley's Salon in Murfreesboro.

Stacie Wright Mayo - the Matron of Honor.  The "before" shot.

Anna Walker - getting her eye lashes on.

The stylist telling me how horrible my eyebrows are and how deep set my eyes are.  I think my face was the bane of her existence.



Anna's transformation is complete - so darned photogenic. 


This was my first time to ever wear fake eyelashes.  This was a big mistake because now I want to wear them all the time. 


Stacie's husband brought us food to keep our energy up during all the pampering. 


Deanna, the Bride. 


The "after" shot.  Stacie is so beautiful, even when she is eating.  It's not fair.

After our hair and makeup was complete we hopped in a limo and traveled to the Belmont mansion.

After a quick rehearsal we went upstairs to get ready.



Deanna was so stunning. 













Next it was off to the Watermark for the reception.  This is the most beautiful reception I have ever attended.

Manhandled

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.


Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 


Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.


They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.


One of my favorites!



Another favorite.




And . . . another favorite.









They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.



It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.






We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…
