Gator Wedding!

It was finally wedding time for my friend Cort! We headed down Thursday morning (me, Mae, and our friend Rachel) and made it to Gainesville in time for Mexican, margaritas, and fun with the family and bridal party in our PJs! Mae loved being with the big girls (and the babies)

We had a spend the night party and I snuck a pic of my girl in on the action! 

Friday was the bridesmaids luncheon. So fun celebrating my oldest friend from childhood.

My parents, Ryan, and Maggie baby made it that afternoon. We, then headed to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner!

The girls had their FIRST hotel experience and could not have done better! Thanks to my parents. Mae joined them and Maggie joined us.

Saturday was the big day! Cort looked beautiful, the girls made it down the aisle happy, and we enjoyed the party! 

The Gator cheerleaders made an appearance (Cort is the UF cheerleading coach) My girls were in heaven!

Uncle Travis came, too!

And of course the next day:

What a wonderful weekend! We love you MR and MRS Gilchrist!

95 Years Young

After the wonderful wedding weekend, we headed over to Penney Farms, where my Grandma lives for a visit.

She turned 95 on Friday! Mae turns 4 on Saturday! Her due date was my grandmother's birthday, AND of course we named her after her (Ida Mae).

So thankful for the time we had with her! We played outside, she showed us around her retirement community and we had a big lunch and birthday cake with her!

After the long weekend, the girls were WORN out! Headed home!

A little secret...

Let me let you in on the best kept secret:

My favorite recipe, made by my mom, and tonight, made by me:

Chicken and Potato Casserole:

First, I put 4 chicken breasts in the crock-pot this morning with some salt and pepper and a little water. This afternoon, I shredded it and spread it in the bottom of a greased 9x13.

I then boiled 4 potatoes (recipe calls for 5-6), I like less. 

Then spread over the shredded chicken: 

The recipe calls for 1 to 1/2 cups of chicken broth to then spread over. I used the broth from the crockpot. 

Then spread the soup mixture along with pats of butter. 

Mix 2 cups of milk and 2 cups of bisquick: 

Pour over and put in over for 1 hour at 350. 


I served with steamed vegetables. You will thank me later. Y-U-M!

Finding Nemo

We went all the way to Atlanta to see if we could find Nemo, and got the extra bonus of meeting with our best friends from Charlotte! We started off at the aquarium! Seeing these little ones together, makes my heart explode. Jackson and Mae are 3 days apart and Mae and Aly are 5 weeks apart. Jenny made life go around for me in Charlotte. We did almost everything together while our husbands worked. We were neighbors, worked out together, did play dates, pool dates, school together, and celebrated so much together! We miss them so much!

We then ventured to "The Varsity" and had a yummy, un-healthy lunch with our besties! So sad to tell them bye!
