I was so pleased at how the island turned out. It was the focal point and where all the food was, so I wanted it to be big (of course!) and beautiful. I'm hoping to share some Pinterest inspiration soon and where my ideas came from.
Okay for some reason, Blogger won't upload my shower pictures for this post, so I'll have to share them later.
And speaking of love and weddings and all that goes along with it, my dear friend and blogger, Andrea, posted the most romantic post this week titled, How We Found Our Paradise. Click over and read about how she and Mr. Nine "lucked up on" a little piece of Heaven! I seriously nearly cried!
Stephanie's dad called last week and told her to send him a picture of herself with her trophies because the Orlando paper wanted to write an article about her. She insisted that Leonard the flamingo be in the picture because "it's Florida, mama!" I like how the basketball goal "snuck" in the pic, too. I'm not sure if I mentioned it here, but she won awards for Most Blocked Shots and Most Rebounds in the league she played in this summer in El Salvador. Can I just say that I'm one proud Mama?? Her agent is in negotiations now and we're waiting to see where she will go next to continue her dream.
One of my favorite boutiques in Jackson posted this beautiful fall ensemble on IG this week. I love, love, love this kimono and olive green is BIG this season - in case you didn't know it already. I'm on a mission for some olive green skinnies, but they have to be office appropriate. I don't need the nuns frowning on me.
By the time you're reading this, we'll be on our way to visit family in Alabama! Usually on Labor Day weekend, our family comes to stay with us, but we decided to change it up this year and make the six and a half hour drive to Cullman. We decided to take Alise out of school for the day and get an early start. The Horton's are ready for some Alabama football, that's for sure!! Of course, we're making a stop in T-Town on the way! Last Saturday night, Wayne and I had a date night and I looked over and realized we were both wearing red!
And?? I couldn't let college football get started without a little #FlashbackFriday picture. This is Katie and Alise when they were about two years old. I am so thankful that they have not allowed the miles to separate them and that they are following in their daddy's footsteps. They are best friends!
Roll Tide, Y'all! Have an AWESOME Labor Day Weekend! See ya on Monday for The Blended Blog's link up!
