Wedding Festivities Continue

These past few weeks have been FILLED with fun wedding events!

First off, 2 weekends ago we flew down to to Orlando to Chris's hometown for the weekend (Annabelle stayed with her Auntie Jenna and Uncle Jared).
We got in late Friday night and went on an 11 p.m Chillis run with Chris's parents! Who knows parents that can be up eating out til midnight?!  Well the Kersey's can!
The next morning we woke up and went to a pre wedding brunch at the Grooms grandmothers house.  Then we went to the wedding and met Chris's brother, sister in law and nephew!  
Chris is Obsessed!

Oh my goodness Chris is in love with him! The wedding was a gorgeous Catholic wedding.  Afterward we went to the reception where we all even did a little bit of dancing :)

Chris and his Fam!

After the wedding we left to meet my mom and step dad that had drive down from Panama City to come to our shower the next day.

We met the at Olive Garden and had some yummy dessert since we missed the cake cutting :(

Our Families and I together! 
Love him!!
That night I went with my mom and Hal to their hotel room.  We had so much fun the next morning... Hal is a funny funny man and my mom and him are hilarious together.

On the way to Auburndale, we stopped by a strawberry stand!

On the way we stopped by target at I discovered BIRTHDAY CAKE OREOS!!!!!! OH EM GEE The y are SO yummy!!!!

The yummiest things ever :)

Once we got to Auburndale and Chris's house we opened some wedding presents that my mom had brought up from home.
Yay pots and pans!

Then we headed to the shower! We had such a fun time.  So many of the families that Chris had grown up with were there and a few of my friends and bridesmaids were there too!

15th Pure Barre Class!

Soooo one of the things on my "to do" list for the wedding was to do my best to get back into shape!  I wanted a workout that was fun, motivating and effective and I have found the golden answer:

Pure Barre is almost too good to be true! It's slogan is "Lift, Tone, Burn" and it does so.  It uses small movements and targets the butt, thighs, stomach and arms.  It also stretches each area after its worked so it works flexibility too.  I literally can see my abs again and half gotten both splits back.  Everyone knows that I was an obsessive runner, but I've taken a break! I really think Pure Barre is just as good of a cardio workout.  I am SO glad to add Pure Barre to my workout because I had been reading how important strength training is, especially for women and I just had no desire or knowledge to lift weights or do weight training on my own.

SO, I have found a fun, addictive and effective way to workout before my wedding.  I'm obsessed!  Here's the link so look and see if they have one near you!

I'm not sure I've conveyed how in love with our puppy, Annabelle, I am!  She's absolutely the most gorgeous, fun, sweet and goofy little girl!  

She's in her Pre-Teen years so she's forgotten how to behave some, but it's ok... I still love her to the moon and back!

She LOVES sitting on the couch looking out the window! She could do it for hours!
She's in her happy place

This is her "Momma, please stop studying and play with me" face :(
Dad's boring her to death trying to teach her teeth anatomy!
I think it's so cute when she sprawls out like this!

Catch Up

So between school/starting in the lab and wedding planning/festivities, my mind has been MAXED OUT! But we have had so many fun events lately!

A few weekends ago we had a wedding-action-packed weekend.  We bought our wedding bands,  finalized our registries and a few other odds and ends.  At the end of it, Chris asked what I wanted to do for dinner and he makes this AWESOME Caprese  Flatbread and so I asked him to make it :)  It was  YUM!
Chris working hard on our dinner!

That weekend I also got to go to a Panhellinic luncheon for the Louisville Panhellinic Association.  It was fun not only to see the Gamma Phi's, but to see all the other Sororities and their sisters...  We had fun and I won 2 raffle prizes!

The next weekend was Christin's Birthday so we went to Mojito Tapas to Celebrate!

This weekend we started it with a *Date Night* at Coals! It's a yummy pizza place super close to our home.  I really love date nights... I feel like for Chris and I they signal for "Ok, talk about whatever deep pressing things you want because there is no time limit here".  We got to talk about our future and where we see ourselves going, how I'm feeling about my school choices, and just what we've been thinking lately.

Love him :)

Chris has a huge test Monday so he's studying for that and I have a day full of Crafting and a little studying ahead of me!  

I love Saturdays!
