Some of our weekend

Saturday night we enjoyed an awesome dinner at the Peter's. Katie P can cook! The girls had fun playing in the sprinkler and Bella loved her first ice cream cone.

Sunday afternoon, my parents came out to get some "Green Time" as they called it.

All in all, it was a relaxing weekend. I love being outside. I can't wait for a beach trip. And I can't wait for our neighborhood pool to open!!

Check back tomorrow for a fun post!

Katie & Matt's Wedding

Friday night, we attended Chris' cousin, Katie's, wedding. It was a nice night for an outside wedding and an fun indoor reception.

I was worried about how Bella would do... but there was no stopping her! She LOVED the lights on the floor from the disco ball. She was squealing and chasing them all night. She certainly isn't shy. She was the only one on the dance floor for a while there! She really was so much fun.

Pigtails and 18 months

Bella turned 18 months on April 11th! I can't believe it!! Everything went well at her 18th month appt, and it's hard to believe we don't go back until age 2.
These pictures are on her offical "18 month birthday" This was right before Easter, and she had spent the night at Grandmothers, and came home in pigtails and a cute outfit.

Easter '09

From Easter 2009
Our Easter weekend was awesome.
First, Buckhead Church had a Good Friday service which rocked! Click here if you want to see the ending that was so cool. The whole song, True Love by Phil Wickham, isn't on here b/c of copyrighting stuff, but you'll get the idea... this led up to that song.
Our small group got a babysitter, then our Moms and Brian came up for the service. Afterwards, Chris and I got a date night!!!
I think that was my favorite part of the weekend - besides working services, Chris was home all weekend and we had such a great time!!
Anyway, Mom kept Bella Friday night, and Chris and I got the convertible in exchange. We slept in, went to Waffle House, and just around in the Mustang. But I have to say, we both missed the poo out of Bella. We met mom later in the day for the exchange. She came home in pig-tails. Pictures to come later. OMG cute.
OK! So Sunday, The Greens met us at church in the morning. Bella wore a cute dress that was monogrammed - and get this - given to us from a friend with the same initials. It was super cute!! Thanks Greenways!
We then let her nap a while before going to lunch at my aunts. And of course Chris took some amazing pictures which I will finally share with you.

Glenwood Park night out

Last weekend, we tried out Vickery's in Glenwood Park. It was a beautiful night!

Check out this funny face Bella does:

Also, I won a giveaway on Whittaker Woman a while back for $25 to Brilliant Bows! I picked out five & got them in the mail last week and they are super cute! She's sporting my personal favorite here...

Then of course we went to the playground for fun and more photo shooting! The sky was awesome. I love SPRING!

So, I don't know if anyone noticed or cared, but I took a little break from blogging for a while there in Feb. I had a new little hobby that I started in January. Saving $ at the grocery store...
From Misc.

So the trip above was this week, I spent $36, but saved $55!
Chris poked fun at me for a while there, and I do look a little crazy when I come home with 4 newspapers on Sunday... haha. But he's since embraced it. He even got me a Couponizer for my birthday in Feb! I love it!!
I've also gotten others to join and save - April, Morgan, Erin, Sara, Kelly and my friend Jill from small group!
It's really not hard, just takes some time to start up and be good about making a list and sticking to it!! What's great is also getting diapers for cheap!!
Check out the beginner's guide and website of and Good luck!

Dogs and Bees

At least someone isn't scared of bees. Bandit loves chasing the big bumble bees!

Video from the Petting Zoo

We walked down the the zoo on Saturday and I had my thinking cap on to actually bring the video camera this time. I had to capture a little of the petting zoo. She likes the animals; loves the brushes.

We are looking forward to more spring weather. I actually really like the hot hot summer weather, too. But spring is such a beautiful thing after the winter
