Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from my camera that my sister took of our huge wedding party. Noah and I couldn't narrow them down. We have such awesome friends and we had to have all of them be a part of our special day.
We went with a lifestyles photographer and she took some awesome pics but it took forever for us to receive our prints. Here are a couple of my favorites of the wedding party.
The flowers I chose were blue hydrangeas for the girls and I had a white bouquet. They complemented the bridesmaids' dresses so well. (By the way, I loved the dresses I chose for them. It was a baby doll style dress with pleats down the middle and my favorite parts were the pockets and the cute bow in the back). But here are two pictures of my gorgeous flowers.

Sorry it's been so long since since my last post. I've had company in town for the past few weeks so I've been entertaining. Anyway, during this past weekend I found out of one of my best friends is getting married! I was the last one to get hitched so now my shining moment is over and it's time for me to take the position as supporting, beaming bridesmaid! Here is a picture of the lovebirds who got engaged in IRELAND! Talk about jealous! But no, I'm so happy for her. She's having the time of her life with the love of her life doing things I've only dreamed of. I remember the excitement of getting proposed to. It was such an amazing weekend. I remember it like it was yesterday. And to think that it will be our one year anniversary next week is crazy. Time really flies by, but more on that in a later post! I'm just so happy for Heather and Mark!

So I got my first Nerd fix last night at the premiere of the sixth installment of Harry Potter, Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. I have been working myself up to last night by reading the book over again. It was like reading the book for the first time again. I knew the movie would be great and I was not disappointed. That cast must be thanking their lucky stars they got picked because now they are set for life. I'll be sad after the next movie. I'm reading the last book now.
But Harry Potter was not what I became obsessed with this summer. Now I have to wait four months for my next Nerd fix, the second movie of the Twilight Series, New Moon! I was kind of late on the initial hype of this book/movie. My sister read the whole series and I didn't know if I wanted to commit to reading the entire thing. Then the Twilight movie came out and I got curious. The moment I opened the first book I was hooked. The movie was a little disappointing (books are always better than the movie) but I can't wait for the next movie. It's going to be much better than the first one I'm sure. I'm not usually into the whole vampire or wizard thing. I'm not about to dress up like a vampire at the movie theater or have harry potter parties, but the authors of these two books have awesome imaginations and wrote some awesome books. I recommend you read them. You won't regret it.

I am finally unwinding from having family stay with us all last week. We had a great time. I never get tired of having family around. They left this morning; I hate good-byes. Noah and I had to work all week so they were on their own. The rain kind of put a damper on doing things outdoors so they spent the beginning of the week shopping. I took off on Friday hoping we could make it to the beach without the rain cramping our style. We were lucky because it turned out to be a perfect day. It was cloudy and windy but the sun peeked out every so often. The kids had a lot of fun splashing in the big waves. Here some of the pictures I took. We ate some good seafood at the Crabshack too. Hmmm. Got to love some low country boil. Saturday we went down to river street, ate lunch, and walked around. The weather was great. We had dinner at my parents and hit the beach again on Sunday. Such a busy weekend but I had a great time.
