So Much To Catch Up On! much to catch up on. I am not doing so well on keeping up with the blogging lately. Mark sent me a message on Facebook today that said, "Hey I need a blog update soon. I'm running out of things to do when I should be studying." haha

This has been a really nice weekend. Friday night Steve and I went out to dinner at Outback. We got our favorite....filet with sauteed mushrooms. Plus we got to catch up on some good conversation.

Laura came home again this weekend, too. It was Parent's Weekend for both her and Lindy. We didn't know what to do??? So we decided not to go to either. But in October we are going to go to see both of them on different weekends.

Anyway... Laura had planned to go visit her best friend, Melissa, this weekend. But Melissa got the flu, so Laura just came home! I was glad to see her! She lost her camera charger, so this is the only picture I have of her since she's been at college!

I hope she gets that fixed soon!

Lindy is LOVING ECU, by the way. She sent Steve and me the sweetest text the other night. It said something like, "Thank you so much for paying for me to go to ECU! I love it here and it is just the perfect fit for me! I love you!" That made me soooo happy! Here is Lindy with her cute roommate, Chelsea.

Saturday was rainy and cool here. Ashley and Laura and I went to Starbucks that morning, then we just hung out inside all day. I made chili and we watched football. I love that kind of day every once in a while. :)

Today it was church, then out to lunch with my family. We went to Chili's and we must have seen at least ten different people we know there. That's what I love about where we live. Even though Charlotte is big, you still run into friends every time you go out somewhere! That makes it feel like a small town.

Today the clouds finally lifted and the sun came out and it is MUCH cooler! It finally feels like fall. Ashley and Laura and I went to the mall this afternoon and found Ashley a GORGEOUS dress to wear to the rehearsal dinner. We got it at one of my favorite stores, White House/Black Market!

Then Steve and I took advantage of the great weather and went on a walk together before dinner. That was so nice!

The new TV season is here and Ashley has talked me into watching Desperate Housewives with her. I have never watched it before but I told her I would give it a try!

(Steve and I really like to watch The Amazing Race, too, so I might have to TiVo one or the other!)

Here Ashley is hanging out on my bed with me waiting for it to come on.

Every time we get on the bed, Rocky has to join us! That big collar around his neck is a bark collar. Unfortunately, Rocky loves to bark. So he has to wear this collar that sprays out a lemony smell when he barks.

The other day, Ashley bent down to pick something up off the floor and Rocky was standing there. I think she coughed or sneezed while she was bending down and that lemony spritzer sprayed her right on her face! We all started laughing so hard. She smelled like Lemon Pledge for the rest of the day!!

I hope you had a great weekend!

You're not going to believe this, and I'm sorry for being creepy, but the red head that your daughter is with just joined my sorority! Jordan is the sweetest and we love her dearly so I can imagine that your daughter is a very special lady as well. What a small world!

I don't know how you do it...I just don't know how you do it.

Your family is amazing and each kiddo is so beautiful from the inside out. I can't wait to see all the beautiful pics that are going to come from the next few weeks and Ashley's adventures.

So nice to catch up with you! You don't have to tell me about having trouble keeping up with the blogs!! I have really been slacking and missing it, but school takes so much out of me! :-)

I was so glad to see the weather clear up too! It does feel like fall and would you know we did football and chili too! Tis the season! :-)

I hope you had a great weekend... sure sounds like it! Enjoy your week!!!
