busy bee

May is one of those months that flies by because it’s so packed with stuff going on.  When you are in school it always seems so busy because you have final projects due, exams, graduations, awards programs, etc. etc. But even now that I’ve been out of school for a few years, May still remains a really buys month.

The last two weeks have flown by, because I’ve worked a lot, and when I haven’t been working I’ve been celebrating birthdays, Mother’s Day, and a wedding this weekend.  Yesterday was Katie’s bday, and we actually celebrated it with dinner and ice cream with the family on Thursday night since Greg and I have wedding stuff going Friday and Saturday night.  But during the day on Friday, Katie, Emily and myself had lunch together, did some shopping, and even spent some time looking at bridesmaids dresses for my wedding. It was a good day 🙂

Today, one of Greg’s fraternity brothers is getting married and Greg is a groomsman. Last night we went to the rehearsal followed by the rehearsal dinner at The Club.  It was lovely.  And after that a lot of their friends went out to celebrate some more, but this girl was tired and falling asleep in bed by 10:30pm.  If I knew I wasn’t going to have a long night tonight with the wedding and reception, I might have felt bad about it, but I just couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer!  Here some pics from the rehearsal dinner…

ah, and this would be the handsome groom so wonderfully showing off the city of Birmingham behind us. Thank you, tour guide Steven!
and of course, the lovely bride and groom
Tonight we will be enjoying their beautiful wedding followed by a reception at Avon Theatre.  And I’m really excited because their reception band (the Negotiators) is also the band we chose to play at our wedding reception. So I can’t wait to get a preview!
And after all of that, May still won’t slow down quite yet.  Next weekend we’ll be traveling to Gulf Shores for the Hangout Music Festival. Then Emily has her highschool graduation the following week! And somewhere in all that I’ve GOT to get some more wedding plans worked out!  C’est la vie!
