"July is electric like a bottle of wine..."

Since I've been home, I've gotten to really enjoy hanging out with our friends and help Haley with her wedding plans. (:

Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit Matt, Amanda, David & Baby Tingle [along with Emma, Katie, Steve & Dilly] for the whole weekend! After a longer than necessary drive to Athens we spent a little time catching up before we headed across the street to the Asher's where Emma & Katie were baby-sitting. We hung out, enjoyed a pasta dinner, and played with the kiddos before it was their bed time. While Emma & Katie put Mikey & Avery down, we walked the long walk home ... across the street to put David down. After he went to sleep, Matt & Amanda stayed up with me until around 1 AM chatting and catching up. Saturday brought about some rest / hang out time for me & Amanda -- oh, and some shopping! First we took a stroll down to the local farmers market. Friend Jake came along -- he got to pull the little kids in the wagon. It was too cute. That evening they were heading to a wedding & Amanda wanted / needed a new dress, so we packed up & headed to the mall. [EEEKkkk!! A mall?! I haven't been to one of those in months! haha] Once home, it was time for Matt & Amanda to clean up & head out with Steve & Dale to the wedding. Since David was asleep, I hung out at their house until Katie came over ... the three of us [Katie, Emma & myself] had dinner plans. We took the kids to Chick-Fil-A (: my favorite! AND at this particular location, they had SWEET POTATO WAFFLE FRIES. Yes, you read that right. They were quite heavenly. When is our Chick-Fil-A getting those?! Sunday we went to church & hung out at Mama & Papa Tingle's house before I had to head home! I sure do love the Tingles (:

Here are a few pictures from the weekend

Later in the week I got to go to the cake tasting with Haley [that we were very much looking forward to] and to her bridal pictures by Jana Candler. [Jana is a good friend who took our anniversary shots last year!] Haley has decided to use the Buttercream Bakehouse for her cake, so that's where we headed first. They let us taste three flavors: vanilla with vanilla bean icing, red velvet with cream cheese icing, and espresso. They also had a spread of buttercream icings and jellies for us to mix and match with the cakes! I won't tell you what Haley decided to go with, but man-oh-man, it's going to be delicious & beautiful! Shortly after the cake tasting, we headed to Haley's hair appointment, then off to the shoot! As soon as Haley & Kendall are married I'll add the link to Jana's page with her bridal session (:
