Just what the doctor ordered...

Blake and I are so very thankful and grateful that God has blessed us with such wonderful friends! This past weekend, our great friends, Matt and Paige, invited us to join them at their brand new cabin in the North Georgia Mountains! They just finished building this gorgeous home and it is the most relaxing place on earth.

We absolutely love hanging out with Matt and Paige and it was the perfect time to just get away and enjoy the cool weather, have some great wine and enjoy the quiet of the mountains. Enjoy the pics!

Thank you so much Camps, for allowing us to escape from the city and experience your perfect getaway!

We are so excited you are here and can't wait to spoil you all the time! You have some pretty amazing parents and you are already just as beautiful as your mommy!

Baylor Homecoming 2008!

Last weekend Blake and I ventured back to good ole Waco, Texas to celebrate one of the best weekends of the year....BAYLOR HOMECOMING!!! We absolutely love Homecoming- the bonfire, the parade, the game, George's, and most of all getting to see all of our friends and family! This year was really special because my 2 little sisters are in school at Baylor (Jen's a senior and Amy's a junior) and Blake's little sister (Bonnie) is a freshman. There are many generations of Baylor grads in both of our families, so it is really neat to be back and see everyone.

This year we got into Waco pretty early on Friday, and immediately went to George's for lunch. Jen and her roommate, Meg came up there along with some of Blake's buddies. Then went to the bonfire to catch up with The Holmans. It was quite the scene, a great band, carnival rides, etc. The next morning, bright and early, we headed to campus to watch the parade. This is one of my favorite parts of Baylor Homecoming. You run into any and everyone you could imagine and of course, watching all the babies is very entertaining. This year was especially fun because both of our nephews were there as well.

The game once again was SO CLOSE!!! Baylor almost walked away with a victory against one of the better teams in the Big 12...Mizzou! It didn't quite happen this year, but I am very confident that next year will be our year!

Enjoy the pics...Meme, sorry it took me awhile to get this up...I was stuck at a business trip in Scottsdale for the past 6 days.
