So, So, SO glad it's finally Friday. I worked 4 days this week, which I never do so I'm pretty exhausted. I'm thinking a little pool action followed by date night + several beverages is in order! We are headed to Charleston tomorrow for a girlfriends wedding. I know we will have a blast and I'm real excited for my first trip to the big city but I'm suuuuuper sad about missing the lake this weekend. It feels so strange that we're not packing our bags tonight to head up for 3 nights of crazy celebrations. I've been at the lake with Aus for the past 6/7 years and then before that was always at our friend Clif's house. It's been a solid 10 years, maybe more, since I've missed a 4th up at the lake. Aus is real sad too but he's being a trooper and heading down to Charleston with me. It's been even longer since he's missed a 4th, he's thinking a solid 15 years. We are staying right downtown here at this little chic + southern boutique. Just like WPP! HA. :) Our new promo cards use Chic and Southern as our tag line. Anyway, I hope everyone has a safe and fun-filled holiday. To our lake crew: we are already missing you!!!
Happy Birthday, America. I'm glad you were born!

Aus and I drove down to the great state of Alabama last week to visit Dad + the fam. We had a great time, per usual. We went to the dog races, lost miserably, also, per usual. Watched Savanna pitch in her softball tournament - they won, and then went on to win the state title for 12U girls. Exciting! We went out to Kobe (a Japanese cook-in-front-of-you restaurant) for Kylie's 12th birthday and had a super fun time + ate amazing food.
A few recent pictures of our sweet girl. She is now 6 months old, weighs 37 pounds, and is super smart! She rings her bell anytime she wants to go out to potty, or just go out to play. She listens well for the most part and is so cuddly! Aus did bring home the shock collar and is using that a bit with her now to nix the bad habits - jumping up on us or the couch, trying to tackle + kill the cat, also whenever she attempts to chew our stuff (she is partial to rainbows and expensive hand bags- ha). We love her and are sooo glad she is a part of our lives!
Almost smiling? She has the whitest teeth!!!

Mr. and Mrs. Uitto have finally tied the knot and made it official. They had been awaiting their big day for a long 18 months! Whew! We had so much fun during their wedding weekend and I was so honored to be a part of it. Friday night we had the rehearsal at the church (obvi) then a nice dinner at the Danville Arts and Cultural Center.
B and me with lil Fran :)
