Look what I found this afternoon....a roof! Now when I tell people I am going to the lot, I can say I am going to the house!!! We were so lucky to get our concrete poured on a day that it hasn't rained. If not, we would still be looking at an empty lot. It's amazing at how quickly things have been happening. It has rained for 2 weeks straight here, which means I have had a bad hair day for that long. I had my first encounter with lighting this afternoon after work. After looking up at chandeliers for 10 minutes, my eyes started crossing, my neck was hurting, and I was getting a headache..so I had to get out of there fast. The sales lady gave me 5 catalogs that were heavier than me and I somehow managed to get back to the car without dropping them. I found some really cool, funky lights to go over our island and dining room table, but I'm sure they will get vetoed by Rob....maybe not! Enjoy our new pics!
Saturday we drove to Oxford for tailgating and Ole Miss vs. Alabama football. It was so great to see some of my girls, especially Risley who came all the way from Virginia. Congrats to the Ole Miss defense for making the score seem not as bad as it could have been! Hope our offense can get it together soon! Either way, Hotty Toddy!
A few weekends ago, mom, dad, Rob, and I went to our cousin Lauren's wedding in Dahlonega, Georgia. It was a quick trip, but we managed to do as much as possible. The wedding was Saturday night, so that day we drove to Helen, Georgia. Helen is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Chattachoochee River and is a re-creation of an alpine village. The day we were there was the first day of their Oktoberfest, so there was lots going on. After we left Helen, in honor of Lloyd, we drove to a part of the Appalachian Trail. It was quite eventful. We drove up the mountain for 30 minutes, took a picture, mom stepped in dog poo, and we left! Lauren's wedding was at the beautiful Wolf Mountain Vineyards in Dahlonega. It was absolutely breathtaking. Rob and I enjoyed walking through the vineyards and seeing the purple grapes. When we were in Napa Valley in June, the grapes were very small and green, so it was nice to see how beautiful they look right before harvesting. I definitely win the award on this blog for most pictures...hope you enjoy them.
