Weekend Wrap-Up

Today started the Bachelorette Party Weekend!!  I was up early to shower, get ready and pack my car so I could be on the road by 8:30.  I met my sister, Lindsay, at her house and we went to get our toes done before we needed to leave.  We came back to her house and packed up her car so we were ready to leave when everybody else did.  We got on the road around 1:00 and met up with 3 other car loads at the cabin (which I didn't get a picture of) and started to unload everything.  The amount of stuff we all brought with us was crazy!!  We were definitely going to have plenty to eat and drink!

Danielle, Sarah, Becca & I 
The Beautiful Bride-to-be 
This nice blurry picture was taken as we were trying to show how well we take pictures in the mirror as opposed to teeny-boppers who look like movie stars when they take their own pictures in the mirror.  We blame it on the fact that we didn't have cell phones as kids!! 
Sarah & Danielle 
Love her! 
Class of 2000 girls!
Stephanie, Me, Danielle, Becca & Sarah 
Where do you blue & gold?? 
We will always be cheerleaders!! 
We love our alma mater!! 
Becca & I at the end of the night!
So after a really late night, we were still up pretty early because we were all excited to get out on the boat!!! 
Ready for some fun in the sun!!!

So after a whole day on the boat, we headed back to the cabin and showered and then ate dinner.  We all brought lots of wings, dips, cheese ball, chips and other dips, cookies, cake and so much more!!  We were stuffed!!  Then, Danielle opened up all her gifts that we bought her.  She was a little embarrassed so no pictures of that!!  So much fun!! 
Jackie, Amanda & Sarah
We all got up and packed up so we could be out of the cabin by 10am!  It was such a fun weekend and the wedding is going to be here in no time!!  Lindsay and I left and headed back to her house.  We were so exhausted and we ended up napping for a few hours.  
Her cat Izzy she took a picture of!  HA!
I left her house around 4 and headed to my parents house to see them before heading back home.  I hung out for a while and talked to mom about the weekend.  I finally left for home a little after 6. 
It was such a great weekend and probably one of the best bachelorette parties I've ever gone to!!!  So excited for the wedding!!

Dear Baby Ryker,

Dear Baby Ryker,

Hello, this is your Aunt Krystal or KoKo (also known as your Momma's BFF).  I'm not going to be available to you this weekend so if you can hold on tight in there and wait till I get back, I would really appreciate it. 
On the other hand, your Momma is ready for you to make your grand appearance sooner than later (as long as you are ready)!!  So sometime before Monday is what she is hoping for.
Also, you're Momma's beloved Doctor leaves to go out of town Monday, so if you're ready, COME ON WITH IT!!
If it's going to be sometime after Monday, then we are going to need you to wait until Labor Day!!
Thanks for cooperating!!
I love you already!!!
Just wait until you see all the little precious outfits I've gotten you!! 
You're only spoiled just a tiny bit!!
KoKo (yes, that is my name...just ask your big brother Dawson!)

**Just a note: I'm a labor and delivery nurse, I know there is no way to know when it will naturally happen or exactly how many hours it will take for him to be here....this is all for fun**
Questions I get asked every night at work!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I got up and had lunch with Niki after her dr's appointment.  I did a little shopping and got some errands done then headed to work at the restaurant.  It was a really busy night!!  I was exhausted so I went to bed early.  Unfortunately, I was awake at 2:30 Saturday morning and could not go back to sleep!
Since I was up so early, working that day was so tiring!  We had a really busy breakfast and a slow lunch.  I was so ready to leave when my shift was over.  I came home and fell asleep for a few hours then got up and got ready to do something!  Abby and I decided to go out for a little bit to listen to a band.  It was an ok time so we decided to get something to eat and then ended up back at her house and watched The Hunger Games.  It was so good!!
I got up and headed to Paducah to meet my friend Lacy and her family.  We ate lunch at Cracker Barrel after church then Lacy and I went to David's Bridal so her daughter could try on the flower girl dress for Danielle's wedding in October.  She was a total doll and loved dancing around in all the mirrors!!

After we got her dress and everything, we stopped at Pier1 and Kirklands.  Madelyn was so good and was singing in the was so cute!!  We went back to their house and hung out for a while there.  It was a really good day!!
