Helen Roadtrip

Friday, after meeting up with Keri and Natalie in Atlanta, we headed off on a little road trip to Helen, Ga to celebrate our good friend Rachel's wedding. We stayed in a cute little cabin called Lorelei Pines with 4 of our other life long friends from Troy.
Once we arrived we immediately got dressed and headed to the Helendorf Hotel in Helen for a "meet and greet" hosted by the groom's parents.
We got to meet Brian's family, enjoy some horderves, and have lots of laughs over a game of Nertz. Needless to say I will probably never be invited to another game of Nertz, definately never got the hang of that one. Here are some pictures from the Meet and Greet:

(Aly and me. Poor Aly got stuck as my partner during Nertz. Sorry :))

All of Rachel's friends at the Meet and Greet: Aly,Natalie,Keri,Rachel,me,Ashley.

Later on in the night, we recieved phone calls from Lauren and Morgan on their way from Tennessee stating that they were lost and at one point ended up all the way in North Carolina due to road closings. Since their GPS couldn't reroute the guys and Leah pulled out a handy map and tried desperately to get them back on track and into Georgia.

Here we all are getting ready to cheer on the two crazy girls after their LONG drive and welcome them to Helen once they finally arrived around 11:30!

Top 3 Thursdays: Favorite Places to Visit

This weeks "Top 3" makes me excited because I LOVE to travel, however, it was very hard to only chose my top three because I have been lucky enough to visit quite a few amazing places!

#3 Nashville: Maybe its my love for country music, but I love this place! I have been here twice and had an amazing time both trips! Can't wait to get back there soon!

#2 Chicago: I went here in 2008 while in Graduate School for a Conference. I helped to organize the trip for our group but have to admit I did not attend one function at the conference because me and my friend, Allie, were to busy enjoying the city! To be such a big city it is so clean, and the people are really friendly!

#1 Alaska: I cannot imagine going anywhere in this world that could possibly be more beautiful than Alaska. One minute we were whale watching in the ocean, the next we were driving on the highway behind a moose, and the next we were climbing a glacier. It is a totally different world up there but a different world I hope to get to experience again one day.

**Honorable Mentions: Hawaii, Las Vegas, New York City, Savannah, Key West, New Orleans, Spain, and Atlanta!

Beth and Josh's Wedding!

Saturday I got up early and headed to Ashland to get my hair and makeup done with Beth and Kayla (Beth's sister) for the wedding. I made it just in time to the church after finishing my hair, to see Beth before she had to leave for pictures. She looked great!

Around 11:00 Heather joined us at the church to get dressed and start pictures! Below is a picture of us with our cute gifts from Beth! She made our necklaces,earrings,and bracelets that matched our dresses perfectly and also made our buckets and a glass wall decoration containing a verse about friendship. I told her she should start a business!
Of course we took lots and lots of pictures!

The ceremony went perfectly and I must say its the most relaxing wedding I have ever been to or been a part of.

I must say my favorite part of the entire wedding had to be when Beth and Josh were pronounced husband and wife and they walked out to Hall and Oats "You Make my Dreams Come True". It made me want to dance back up the aisle and I think it took the preacher and the guests by surprise!

After the wedding we braved the cold and headed to the fellowship hall for the reception! Beth loves Disney movies so of course her cake and table had to reflect Cinderella.

Josh's table was all about the University of Alabama. His cake was extremely yummy and made by Beth's mom Mrs. Charlotte.More pictures from the reception:

Another one of my favorite parts of the entire wedding for 2 reasons: 1) I have never been to a wedding where they release live doves. 2) Beth is deathly afraid of birds and as you can see she had to hide behind Josh when they were released. I am not sure if she was aware of this part of the wedding or not? Here they go, off to Disney World!

Spring Fever

So, I have been having major spring fever lately. I wish I could be back in the Bahamas:

OR in Key West OR in Panama City Beach: Or even on a boat at the lake right down from my house:

Anybody up for a trip???
