Crazy Fun Weekend-Sunday

Sunday morning started early for me because I went to the 8 o'clock service so I could leave right after the music portion of the 10:15 service. Jessica and I had to pick up a few things and then head to her house to start decorating for the surprise engagement party. Yep that's right, the surprises for Donnally were still not over. We had been planning this party for 3 weeks! She had no idea that I had been in contact with her mom and JRs mom to get this whole thing put together :) it was great. So we spent the afternoon making cupcakes, decorating, getting food together, and getting pictures together of their weekend. All and all it was a major success. Donnally was so surprised and she was so happy to be able to celebrate with family and her closest friends. The party concluded my eventful fun filled weekend that I wouldn't change for anything. I got to spend it with some of my favorite people. Enjoy some pictures from the party. Congratulations JR and Donnally love you both!

Crazy Fun Weekend-Saturday

So we got back from Joplin about  12:30 and then Jess and I went to Walmart to get the stuff I needed to make for Carmen's shower. Walmart at 12:30 am is a very interesting place to say the least. Once I got home I had to make the punch and prepare the food. I was up for  24 hours before I actually got to sleep! But it was all worth it for my sweet friend Carmen :) Lindsey and I had spent part of Thursday making the decorations. It was so much fun to catch up with her and be crafty. And it turned out great if I do say so myself. The shower turned out great and it was a great fellowship of friends and family and celebrating Carmen and Audrey. I am so thankful for Carmen and I was happy to help out with her shower.

 I spent most of my time making pin wheels but look how cute they are

All the hostesses. We can't wait to meet Audrey!
After we cleaned up from the shower I went home and took a much needed 2 hour nap. Boy was it refreshing. Then went to Fayetteville with some friends for dinner and a late movie. Then it was to bed as quickly as possible because I had to be at the 8 o'clock service in the morning.

Crazy Fun Weekend-Friday

I had one of those weekends where it was absolutely non stop. I would change anything about it but come Monday I was ready to just sleep. I am going to split up my weekend into three posts (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)

It all started early Friday morning. I got up at 3:30 to meet up with Jessica and Nikki so we could surprise Donnally with the first letter from JR for her surprise engagement trip. It was early but it was so worth it. She was so confused at first but once she realized she was going on a trip the packing began. We helped get her get all packed while she took a shower and got ready. She was so excited. It was great to be able to spend that time with her. I had been keeping this secret from her for a month or so and it was great that the time was finnally here. JR was so sweet and had everything planned out perfectly. They flew to New York and they are now engaged. I am so excited for Donnally. She is one of my very best friends and she has been waiting for this for awhile. It is such a fun story. Enjoy some pictures from their engagement .

 This was when we woke up Donnally and she was reading the first letter from JR
 This was us trying not to cry as we surprised her haha
 Where it all happened...look at that view!
I just love this picture because she looks so happy

So while all the engagement stuff was happening Mary Claire, Jessica, and I were in Joplin for the Kari Jobe / All Sons and Daughters concert. Wow was it amazing. It was just a bit worship service and I absolutely loved it. We had such a good girl trip. Lots of fun was had with those two. We got home about 12:30 and my night was just starting...
