The Gun Man and A Precious Friend's Wedding

This weekend I was blessed to attend a precious friend's wedding, Lauren Hodson (now Lauren Caudill!), and spend some much needed time with friends I hadn't seen in a year or even 2!  I can't believe I've missed out on the last two years of some of their lives.  Some have gotten married to men I haven't seen or spent much time with.  It was GREAT getting to know them a little more and why my best girls love them so much.  If only my sweet boy could have been there too.  I just miss him so much and can't wait for this deployment to be OVER WITH!  Here are some pictures of my best friend's little boy, Gunner, and Lauren's wedding.  More to come later!
He loves his bicycle that his daddy restored.  
**The strings on the front are such a good idea.  That way mom or dad can have him hold onto the bars and they can pull him AND steer it at the same time.**

 Those blue eyes are to die for!
 The Gun Man loves his Uncle Tom!
 Chillin' in the bed of daddy's truck!

 The GORGEOUS bride, Lauren!  This is such a great facial!
 The lighting in the church was amazing!

 We all filled up our own bags of candy!

 Dancing the night away!

 And they're off!

Congratulations guys!!!  So happy I could celebrate with you!

North Carolina Getaway!

This last weekend was our last time to go on a spontaneous weekend getaway before Josh deploys.  So what did we do??

We went with another couple to Nags Head, NC, and Roanoke Island, NC!  SOOOOO FUN!  We played on the beach, ate at a wonderful restaurant, went kayaking, and strolled around the cutest little town.

Here are a few beach pictures:

Our friends brought their dog, Finnegan (Finn), who is only one month old and just SOOO cute! 

This is my friend Caty...such a sweet girl!

All the boys digging holes in the sand.

This was the neatest sign in downtown Roanoke Island, NC.  It showed where all the tourists sites were to make sure people hit up.  So crafty!

Here we are about to board our kayaks for a cruise out in the bay of Roanoke Island and then out into the waves of the ocean!  If I wasn't so afraid of tipping (which none of us did) I would have taken a camera with me, but I'm not that dumb!  So this is all we have to show for our kayak adventure.

Sunset across the street from our hotel.  Too bad we didn't get an ocean view of the sunset. :-(

Out for pizza and ice cream!  YUM!!!

Might I just say this was the BEST way to spend a weekend out before Josh leaves in less than two weeks.  I will soon start packing the apartment up (soon as in I should have started today) to put all of our belongings into storage.  While Josh is gone I'll be spending the summer at my parent's place in Fordland, MO.  During the fall school year I'll actually be living in Shawnee, OK, with Josh's parents while I take Philosophy to finish up my degree.  I've been putting it off for a long time, but I think everyone would agree that this will be the perfect time to get my degree finished up!
