Memorial Day

The holiday weekend is over and it was a good one.
Long, but good.


Yesterday started early. My best friend, Courtney, her mother in law and her two beautiful babies came over to visit on their way home from the airport.


A brief history lesson, Courtney and I have been friends for 20 years. Our mothers were best friends in high school so we were destined to be best friends. So even though I'm sure we were friends at birth, 4 years old is when we began sleep overs and parties. We have always been close but never real close in location. Growing up we lived 45mins away from each other and very rarely saw each other. We saw each other more in college because we went to the same one and then after we both left, we got an apartment together.
We moved to South Carolina together, experienced life and motherhood, and then we moved back to Texas. She has a beautiful little girl who is exactly 2 months and 1 day older than Brooklyn and then a wonderfully handsome GQ little man who is 2. And now while we still live 2.5hrs away from each other, we try our hardest to see each other when we are in town. She's actually coming to stay the entire weekend next weekend and I can't wait!

 
They stayed until 10:30am and then we got ready and went to the inlaws for a BBQ.


Ribs, potato salad, cole slaw, french fries, baked beans, rolls, and fruit salad. It was all fantastic.


J3, our local little buddy, came with his parents and he and Brooklyn had so much fun blowing bubbles and dragging out all toys at Nana and Peepaws house.


Laura took a great picture!

After everyone was gone and some flat tire drama, Mark and I went to meet up with our "house lady" to pick out all the colors for our new house! I cannot wait!!!

Here's our mood board:

Grafito ceramic tile - slate look
Brazilian Black granite
White Subway Tile
Oil Rubbed Bronzed fixtures
White Cabinets
And subtle, calm paint colors.

I can't wait!! SOoooo excited!
