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!!
