Summer Cut

Yesterday I tool Lilly to get her summer cut, but not before I snapped this pic:
Then this morning, after I took Lilly in to wake Rick up, I heard in a strange voice "What's she doing?" I walked in to find this:
She LOVES him! She wakes him up with kisses every morning, and if she's not in the bed, he refuses to get up until I get her. I am pretty sure it is just an excuse for a little more sleep. So that's Lilly Bears summer cut! Happy Memorial Day weekend all!

IP after party

After the wedding last weekend, we headed to the IP Casino where we were all staying to meet up with the crew. Good times were had by all!
Got to see my sweet maid of honor Traci and my friend Anastasia.
My fabulous fiance' and lifetime best friend are so funny together. They love to pick on each other, it means they like each other, I think? This makes me so happy!!!

Willis-Ashbaker Wedding

Last weekend we went to our friends Tom & Rachael's wedding in Pascagoula. Tom and I graduated high school together, and Rach and I have known each other since we were kids, and they both live in Bham now. This wedding was BEAUTIFUL! There were TONS of people there, one of which was my adorable mom!
And one of my best friends Aaron and his wife April. Funny note, Aaron and I were in preschool together at the same church where Tom & Rach were married. We sat together at the wedding and I thought my mom was going to cry. She said "I could just picture you and Aaron up there holding hands in the Christmas program when yall were 4." I am very lucky to have such an awesome life long friend.
You knew I had to toss in one if Ricky Bobby and me.
Oh, and my big teddy bear of a friend, Tanner! We were really good friends in college, and he just so happened to marry Rachael's sister. Tan and Katherine just had a little boy that looks JUST LIKE TANNER! It was so great to see him, and he reminded Rick that I was always just one of the guys. I am sure Rick was thrilled to hear that. LOVE IT!
I failed to get a picture of the bride and groom due to the large number of people there, so this is all I've got! The photographer did take one of RB and me with the happy couple so when I get that I will add that.
It was an awesome wedding, and great to see all the smiling faces of Goula. I LOVED catching up with all my friends parents too, they are such sweeties! Every time I see them they say, you know you and Rick can stay with us anytime. Just so sweet! Now the newlyweds are in the Dominican Republic at the same resort where RB and I got engaged!! CONGRATS ASHBAKERS!

Plenty to celebrate!

Friday before last we had a cookout because we have LOTS to celebrate. It was Eric & Stephen's birthdays, and the first time we've been able to celebrate our engagement with our Bham friends. (Really just an excuse to have everyone over!)
Rick with the birthday boys!
I'm not sure we were ready for this one.
Some of the crew.
All of these guys have been best friends since high school, and they still are. I have never seen a group of guy friends as close as these, it's pretty awesome!! I am so excited to be joining such an awesome group.
Thanks to everyone who came, we had a blast (which made wedding dress shopping a little difficult at 8 am the next morning).
