Summer is simply my most favorite time of year, not just because it includes my birthday :) but because of:

homemade lemonade
flip flops
swimming-pool, lake, ocean
beach hair
tan lines
beach trips
homemade icecream
lemon poundcake (my grandma makes me one every year for my bday)
dinner and movie dates (all the good movies come out in summer!)

Adam and I took the pups for a walk last night in downtown. It was so nice to be outside walking as the day was cooling off and to just smell know that smell right?! The pups were excited, too!

*Random fun*

Last night Adam and I decided to go out for favorite...Tako Sushi in downtown Aiken! I love downtown Aiken! It has to be the cutest swank downtown ever! Anyways, so when we were pulling up we noticed an usual amount of people and turns out all of downtown was having a "beach blast!" All the stores stay open later then normal and some had snow cone machines and others were grilling hotdogs! There was even beach music playing and people dancing the "shag" aka the south carolina dance. It was so neat! So we ate dinner and it was so yum, then we walked around for short period of time and then all of a sudden it got really dark and windy so we headed back home :( Although the night ended a lot sooner than we would have liked, we still had a fun time! I even snapped a few pictures that I plan to post later! I really enjoy those times when you set out to do nothing special and then encounter random unexpected fun!!

When the going get tough...the tough go to the beach...

And that is exactly where we are headed! We will be beach bound in a few hours! I am so excited!! My bags are packed and there is is only a load of laundry that needs to be put away...then it is off for a pedicure! I can't go to the beach with crusty feet!! Then I will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of my husband, and believe me when I tell you that I will be sitting on GO! I mean honestly what could be better than waking up late, sitting on the beach soaking up the sun, board games and lots of timeless dvd's, shopping, and eating unhealthy ('s vacation)???? *EXCITED*

Happy Bridal Shower Day, Tanya!

Today my really good friend, Tanya, is having her Bridal Shower. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend because it is in Rhode Island :( Tanya and Tommy are getting married in September, and Adam and I are both in the wedding! We are so excited and cannot wait for their wedding! They are such a sweet couple!


I hope that you had a wonderful day today! I know your shower was beautiful! I really wish I could have been there, but I will see you very soon! I cannot wait to be there with you and help you prepare for your special day! We are going to have so much fun! Thank you for being such a great friend and for being my 'right-hand-woman' on my wedding day! I hope you know I will be the same for you!
Love you bunches,
Amber :)

~My little guys~

My cousin, Tiff (who is like my big sis), has two little boys, Lathen-3yrs old and Baker-8 mths old. They are sweet as pie and I could just kiss their little faces off! I try to spend as much time with them as I can but it is never often enough. So when I do spend time with them I just soak it up! We have so much fun together! Lathan calls me "Ebee!" We have photo shoots with my camera whenever we are together. He is getting so big and will start 3K in the fall. He is so smart and amazes me with some of the statements that he makes! And little Baker is at the age where he is balls of fun, you can just smile at him and he'll laugh! Tiff was telling me today how he loves to look at himself in the mirror now and thinks its funny :) I am going to babysit Bake on Sunday while Tiff and Chris have some "big boy" time with Lathan at the movies. I can't wait!

The South

The South
The place where...
1) Tea is sweet and accents are sweeter.
2) Summer starts in April.
3) Mac and cheese is a vegetable.
4) Front porches are wide and long.
5) Pecan pie is a staple.
6) Y'all is the only proper noun.
7) Chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy.
8) Everything is 'darlin'.
9) Someone's heart is always being blessed.

I found this super cute plaque while shopping in a store that I love called CUDOS and stopped to write it down right then and there. Being born and raised southern, it really summed up the south pretty well! Love it!

Count down to the beach...

In a little over a week, we will be on our way to Myrtle Beach for a family vaca! Ahh...what could be better to look forward to? Adam acutally got the time off even though he has worked at 3 three different Wal-greens since he asked for the time off, bless his heart, he was determined to have a beach vaca, and I don't blame him! Each year, usually Memorial week, both of Adam's side of the family all goes camping at Pirate Land. What an adventure?! It is seriously like 25 people and we have the best time laying on the beach reading trash mags (People US Weekly, O.K., etc), playing sports on the beach, going to the Boardwalk and Broadway doing what us girls do best...SHOP!!!, grilling out, riding the golf cart around the campsite at night (when Nicholas isn't hogging, and my favorite, floating in the lazy river! I could seriously fall asleep in that lazy river! They play 60's music and I just feel so relaxed floating with the sun beaming down on me...ahh...I can't wait! I need to start packing because if I don't start now I will be in panic-mode! Next Tuesday will be here before I know it! Yah for beach trips!!!
