In honor of the Royal Wedding...

I thought I would post some pictures of my wedding dress. I absolutely loved my wedding dress! I am no royal, but I felt like royalty on my wedding day, as girls should feel! My dress was the first one I tried on and I didn't want to take it off! The veil really made the dress. I had always dreamed of having a fancy poufy ball gown, but when I tried on my dress, I knew it was the one. To me, it was just so elegant and classic. Perfect. And just maybe Ella Jae will have the same thoughts and want to wear it someday :)

Now onto the Royal Wedding...I was up at 5:45 am to watch the big event. There is just something so intriguing about the royals, and what girl doesn't dream about being a princess?! I tuned in just as Kate and her dad were getting in the Queen's 1950s Rolls Royce. I anticipated seeing her whole dress the whole time as she rode in the car. And I have to say I was surprised when she made her way into the church because I thought her dress was going to be more elaborate much like Princess Diana's dress, but it wasn't at all. But nonetheless, it was stunning! She really looked so radiant! It really fit her personality to me. I watched the whole ceremony and then had to leave for work. Fortunately I made it to work in time to see Will and Kate step onto the balcony and seal the deal with a kiss. They look like they are the best of friends and so much in love. I loved how Kate got so tickled both times they kissed on the balcony. So sweet!

I'm loving that the Royal Wedding is on Friday, especially since I watched 'William and Kate' on Lifetime! Unfortunately, I will be at work on Friday :( But I got the app to watch it on my ipod :) There is just something so intriguing about the royals!!

I'm loving that I had a breakfast date at IHOP this morning with my little family! Adam has been on vacation and we he went back to work today but didn't have to be in until 11:30 am so we savored our morning together!

I'm loving my new Coach bag I got while I was in HHI this weekend :) I think it is perfect for Spring and Summer!!

I'm loving these little itty bitty flip flops we got for Ella Jae at the outlets this weekend! Aren't they the cutest things you've seen? They look so stinkin' cute on her little feet! She loves them, and actually walks really well in them!

I'm loving that I came home last night to these from my sweet hubby.....just because.....

I'm loving my little family, as always!!!!!!!! Aren't they the sweetest??? I am a lucky lucky gal!

Happy Wednesday, y'all!!! Hope you're having a great week!

We are off to eat dinner at Mem's tonight and celebrate my SIL's bday!

"What I'm Loving Wednesday!"

This week I'm loving....

I'm loving that it is almost Easter! What a beautiful time of year that God really shows us who He is! I am looking forward to Easter Sunday service at church, a yummy Sunday dinner with family, egg hunts, dying eggs with E, Easter baskets, matching attire, beautiful weather, and celerating our risen Savior!

I'm loving that Ella Jae has become such a little cuddle bug! She loves sit on me and watch a show. She brings me books and will crawl in my lap. She will lay her head on me for no reason at all and pat me. She melts me heart and I love her with every part of me!

I'm loving that this will be our view on Sunday and Monday!

I'm loving this little adirondack chair that Adam's parents got E in Rhode Island when they visited there this past weekend. I saw one last year at HHI and wanted to get it for it. Isn't it super cute! She loves sitting in already :)

I'm loving that Water for Elephants comes out on Friday! I really want to see it and I'm hoping Ad and I can sneak in a date night to go to the movies!!

I'm loving that Mem and Pep Lambert sent us some Easter goodies :) They always send me and Ad chocolate bunnies each year and have since we started dating!! It makes me happy! Mem also sent E a little bear that says a few things, and she has been carrying it around and loving on it!!

I'm loving my little family, as always! I am really looking forward having some quality family time as Ad is off a few this coming week!! Eeeek....I {double heart} them sooooo much!!!

Hope y'all have a great rest of the week!!

Our Weekend

We had a wonderful Spring weekend! Friday, was our long day at work and Mama kept E, so we met at her house after work. We were going to go to a cookout at my cousin's house at the lake but we were expecting bad weather so we decided to not risk it with E. Ad picked us up salads from Zaxby's instead. We ate at Mama's together and enjoyed time with her and then headed home. Saturday, I worked and Ad kept E. It is their daddy-daughter time :) Ella Jae had the best day she's had in a few weeks because she has been cutting the top teeth. They aren't through yet but they're very swollen. But she was very happy and didn't whine as much so it was great for us :) After she woke up from her second nap, we decided to eat dinner at Chili's, and because it is Mama's favorite restaurant we invited her to dinner. Chili's was packed because it was prom night (I secretly wished I was going ha! Loved prom!!), so we hit up Salsa's next door!! Which was totally fine with me because I love me some mexican!! Then we went to Target and browsed and picked up babyfood. E is no longer content sitting in the buggie or in a seat. She wants to be walking and exploring and that is rather difficult sometimes. So our adventure didn't last too long. But we had a great time together and really enjoyed the nice Spring night! Sunday, I ventured out to New Moon for breakfast ofcourse! But for some reason, I haven't really been in the mood to drink a whole iced coffee! Gasp, I know right! I don't know what's wrong with me. Taste bud changes, I guess. Then we got ready for church and headed there. Didn't E look cute this morning in her bunny top and ruffle pants?!

Those were the best pictures I could do this morning. The girl is non-stop! She has nicknames like "destructo-baby" and "determi-baby" because she is into everything and is always on the go! The pictures tell it all! Oh, get was E's first time in the church nursery!!! And I didn't even know she was in there!! We usually stay in the back until the music is over and then we walk to our seat. Well this morning, Adam stayed in the back with her and Adam's brother. And when church was over, I went back there and I saw Adam and no baby. Which isn't unusual because she gets passed around ha! So when I said who has E, he said "I have to go get her, I put her in the nursery!" OMG! Haha! I have nothing against the nursury, I just felt guilty leaving her, and his parents are so sweet to walk her around if she gets disruptive during the service. So as of today she is a nursery baby! The girls said she was really good and they loved holding her and playing with her :) After church we went to eat at Beef O'Brady's with Adam's family.

{Erica, E, and me}

(E fell at lunch and got her first bump on her noggin :( }

Adam went for a ride with his brother on their motorcycles once we got and me and E took a nap :) It was a great day for it. Then we went to the baptism at church tonight, and it was so wonderful! 50 people got baptised tonight!! It was a great feeling being in the sanctuary. I cried just about the whole service ha! It was really that touching! I think the older I get, the more I realize the sacrifices that Jesus Christ made so we can be freed from sin. What a beautiful gift we've been given! After the baptism, we went to Bruster's for icecream :) My fav! Ella Jae enjoyed her own little kids cone :) She took the biggest bite! She seriously bite the whole top of the cone off!! I know she had to of had brain freeze ha! She gets that from her Daddy and her Pep lol!

{E sharing her cookie with her Mem!}

We had such a wonderful weekend with our families! I couldn't feel more blessed than I do at this exact second! Thank you, Lord, for the blessing of family!

Come on tooth #3...

Ella Jae has had this face on for the past three days and I'm pretty sure she will be getting her third tooth soon. Hopefully sooner rather than later! Her top gums are very swollen so I'm sure her third tooth is going to pop through, maybe the fourth and fifth! She is miserable, bless her little heart. She is a tough cookie and rarely cries at a bump on the head so I know she must be really umcomfortable when she cries if she drops her baby or if I don't pick her up immediately. So ok you little toothies...come soon because this mommy is worn out, please and thank you!!
