This {long} weekend, i...

This weekend, we went to a cooking class at church. There is a man at our church who is known for being an excellent cook. They decided to have a cooking class night, where he taught us to cook Shrimp & Grits (popular southern dish) & a lady in our church would teach us to make her Strawberry Shortcake dessert. Then we would all eat together.

 the cooks & their spouses (Craig & Teddie, JC & Sandra)

Our church has never done this, but it was SUCH a hit! Everything was decorated perfectly & the food was - HONESTLY ... no exaggerating here ... the BEST thing i have ever put in my mouth! Brad said the same thing! I have had Shrimp & Grits at several local restaurants - it was even better than that! We had a wonderful time! :)

This weekend, we had breakfast at Brad's mom & dad's Saturday AND Monday. Good stuff! LOVE hanging out over there and enjoying my mother-in-law's cooking! DELISH! :)

This weekend, we went walking first thing in the morning... Saturday & Monday. Woohoo! :)

This weekend, I went with my mom to lunch (mexican) & shopping (Pier One & Target). We put together a housewarming basket for my friend Amanda who just moved back from California. It was fun putting it together! :)

This weekend, I delivered the housewarming basket to Amanda, and got to check out her new house! Got some loving from Judah, too! (That's me & judah, below... except this picture was taken LAST weekend. Ha!)

 isn't he so cute?! 

This weekend, I got really really down again about infertility. Just an emotional roller coaster, y'all. Saturday evening I was so down about it, and then Sunday I woke up with such a sadness in my heart. I told Brad it physically hurts, that it feels like someone is taking the palm of their hand and SHOVING my heart in as hard as they can. I took a nap Sunday afternoon, though, and woke up feeling fine. Funny  how that works. Much better today. But i would appreciate your prayers!

This weekend, I did an engagement shoot downtown! Such a beautiful couple!! :)

This weekend, I got together with my good friend Shana for lunch (La Madeline's) & shopping (Pier One - yes, again!). It was a good time. Love that girl! I also was compelled to buy a sweet little stuffed animal for my future child. Is that weird? I felt so silly! Tell me i am not the only person who has bought something for her child before she was even pregnant?! I would post a picture, but it feels personal somehow. It's the softest sweetest little puppy dog, though! I thought Brad would think i was crazy but he said when i am sad i can get the puppy dog & remind myself that we will one day be parents. ONE DAY. :)

How was your weekend???


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend, overall! XOXO
