Christmas came early and brought....LILLY!

Two Saturday's ago Bill and I went to Rome, GA for a wedding but little did Bill know that we would be picking up his Christmas present before we made it back to Auburn. I had purchased Lilly earlier that week and couldn't stand waiting a month to give her to Bill. So I convinced Bill that we had to drive an hour and a half out of our way to pick up some dance costumes for the Christmas parade. Needless to say he wasn't very happy but he was a trooper. When we were about 5 minutes away from the house I told him. I have never seen him so excited!! Lilly is a miniature daschund and she will be 10 weeks on this coming Tuesday. It has been fun watching her play and it has also been a challenged training her. She has traveled alot since we have had her. She spent her first night with us in Dadeville, Thanksgiving in Decatur and made a brief trip to Birmingham. She also got to make her first appearance at the Alexander City Christmas parade last night.

I look forward to watching her grow!! Here are some pictures of her journey!

Enjoying her new bed! Playing with Snickers....she didn't like Lilly much at first.

So I can't believe football season is almost over and we are half way through November. I have been super busy this past month and a half with work but still manage to squeeze in some fun.

At the first of this month Abe, Brooke, Taylor, John, Bill and I packed up the car and went to Oxford for the Ole Miss vs Auburn football game. With us all living in different places it is hard to get everyone together in one place for the whole weekend. It was so great to hangout with my sisters!! Eventhough the Tigers weren't able to pull out with a victory we sure did have some fun!!

That same weekend Bill and I also got to spend some time with his family!! On Saturday Patrick popped the question and Amy said yes! It was fun to be a part of all the excitement after the big date. I also got to meet Amy's family and her sweet roommates! They are getting married on June 28th in Nashville. I can't wait!!

The latest trip was a recent trip to ATL to see So You Think You Can Dance!! Last Thursday my sisters, Mom and I went to the Gwinett Civic Center to see our favorite dancers. It was so much fun and the show was incredible. It really made me miss dancing!! It was nice to get away for the night and spend some quality time with just the girls. Something that doesn't happen to often these days.

Time flys when you are having FUN!

Yesterday Bill and I celebrated our one year anniversary. I can't believe that this time last year I didn't even know who Bill Baggett was? I want to give special thanks to Morgan and Taylor for introducing me to him.

The past year has been so exciting! We have shared many special moments together and are truly blessed to have each other in our lives. I look forward to what the future holds for both of us!

Here are some pictures of the past year!

We love spending time with each other on the water whether it is Lake Martin or the River in Decatur!!!

We love visiting Decatur and seeing the Memorial Day Balloon Glow!

And we don't pass up a chance to see the Tigers play!
War Eagle!!

I'm Getting OLD!!

Today my little baby sister turns 22! And boy does that make me feel OLD! It seems like yesterday we were playing house, barbie dolls, and dress up. Now she is in her senior year at Auburn and loving every minute of it. She has really impressed me over the years. It has been fun to watch her grow into the young lady she is today. Her excitement for life is contagious and she is probably the best listener around. Although I am older than her I often catch myself looking up to her as a role model. She is very grounded in her beliefs and values and she helps me strive to be a better person. With us both being back in Auburn she probably gets sick of her older sister always hanging around but I love every minute that we get to spend together! So Happy Birthday Tay Tay!!! Hope you have a great one!!

Last night we celebrated Taylor's birthday with some close friends! It was great time filled with food and fellowship. Thanks to all who came out and a special thanks goes out to Cate and Sara. It was so sweet of you two to plan the Birthday dinner for Taylor. She is very fortunate to have such sweet friends and roommates.
Look at Sara's great cake!! She is so domestic!! :)

Labor Day Weekend!!

What a great weekend filled with family, friends, Auburn Football and Lake Martin. I can't believe football season is here but I truly love this time of the year. I love it for many reasons.......1. Work is exciting!! WAR EAGLE! Working for Tigers Unlimited during football season is the best thing since slice bread. I get to meet great people and get to absolutely soak up the best of Auburn Football. 2. College Friends...I love getting to hangout and catch up with great friends who live far away from me. I miss them so much but I am so grateful to get to see them for 7 weekends out of the year.
Although this past weekend was hectic I got to enjoy myself. I loved waking up on Saturday and feeling the excitement in Auburn. I just can't describe the way football game days make me feel. It is so exciting and I love every minute of it. I loved getting to see Erin and Jason, Amy and Phillip and Brittany and George. It was great catching up with them and I hope to see them soon!!
The weekend ended with a great few days at the lake. Bill and I traveled to Lake Martin on Sunday to spend the rest of the weekend with my family. It was nice to relax and enjoy the last days of summer with the folks. It was the first weekend all summer that we have gotten to spend at the lake. Isn't that CRAZY!! You would think that we would have spent most of the summer there but our schedules were too busy. Hopefully we can spend more time there next year. We loved relaxing at the lake and getting to spend time with the whole family!!! Sunday night we went to see Sister Hazel play and it was a lot of fun!
I couldn't have asked for a better weekend!! What a great way to start off the fall!!

New to Blogging!

Well, after checking out all my friends blog pages I thought I would join the world of blogging. It is probably going to take me awhile to understand all the stuff that comes along with this whole blog thing but hopefully I will catch on.
