Abbey had a pretty exciting week. The week started off by Dennis and I telling her that she made the all-star softball team. She was VERY excited. She played on a softball team this year where a lot of the girls were new at softball so they didn’t win any games. I think they should have won a game but the scoreboard showed that it was a tie. Anyway, Abbey is a competitive person (just like her dad) and likes to win, but this year she had a great attitude towards things and it looks like it paid off for her. The all star coach watched her team play a few games and saw that Abbey was a great softball player and so he asked her to be an all star player. On June 15th and 16th, she will play in a tournament at the State Games in Meridian. I don’t know a whole lot about it but from hearing the coach talk it sounds like it will be a lot of fun for the girls. Today Abbey had an awards program at her school and she received an award for having an all A average for the school year. She is a smart little girl and we were very proud of her.

We have another busy weekend ahead of us. Tonight we are eating crawfish (yummy!) and tomorrow we will spend most of the day at the softball fields. Brandon has a game right before lunch and Abbey has 2 make-up games tomorrow night. We will definitely be squeezing Shrek 3 in tomorrow afternoon. I am so excited about seeing it. Shrek is my favorite kid’s movie so I have been looking forward to the next one coming out for awhile now.

Tonight is the last night in my apartment. I am SOOOOO excited. I have lived there over 2 years now and I was itching to leave. I will be living with Dennis’s sister for June and July and then my sister is getting an apartment in Jackson at the beginning of August so I will be a bum and live with her for a month. I can’t believe we are getting close to the end of May. The wedding will be here before we know it. I must start addressing my invitations because July is creeping up on me fast.

4 months!!!

The wedding is 4 months from today. It is 123 days away. Ok, so I’m not counting down or anything. I am getting very excited and nervous and the same time. I’m nervous that everything may not get done in time. There are still tons of things that need to be done. My invitations were ordered and have come in but I have not seen them yet. My mom is supposed to get them this weekend. I plan to start addressing them right away so that I won’t be totally stressed out when I have hundreds of these things to address a few weeks before I have to mail them out. I had my first alterations fitting yesterday for my wedding dress. It will take about 8 weeks to get it back. Let’s hope it’s not more than 8. I will be freaking out. My bridesmaid’s dresses also came in and I was very pleased with the way they looked. My sister tried hers on and it looked really good. Hopefully they will look good on the wedding day as well. We are taking our Engagement pictures this Saturday. I hope they turn out. Ok, so enough about the wedding. We had a busy weekend as usual. Abbey had softball practice and Brandon had a game on Saturday then we took them to the zoo. I thought my favorite animal was a monkey but I am slowly changing my mind. Every time I see one at a zoo it is doing something disgusting so I am thinking that I may need to find a new animal to like. Maybe one that seems to be a little cleaner. The zoo was fun and it was a great day to go. The weather turned out to be really nice.
