Mr and Mrs Hodges!

Last weekend, Colby and I had an ADULT weekend in Oklahoma City.
My Aunt Cathy and Uncle Bruce, graciously flew ALL THE WAY down here to babysit Cade for the weekend. And well, considering Cade had fever when we left which was followed by a lovely course of explosive diarrhea, I think the correct choice was made!!

My sister-in-law Mandy married the love of her life- Adam. I can remember her coming to visit us down here when Cade was 1st born, and I could tell she was beaming! Then she told us about a new guy from work that she had met. I could see in her eyes that he was the one. And the rest......

We started the weekend out at County Line for the rehearsal dinner, it was great, and reminded me of Austin!

When we left dinner, that's when the front began to blow in. The temp dropped 30 degrees in 2 hours. We woke up Saturday morning to snow on the ground. And it proceeded to snow ALL DAY. Snow AND 40-60 mile per hour winds does NOT make a bride happy, but have no fear! It was still an AWESOME, FUN, and GORGEOUS wedding!!!!!

The wedding took place at a little, intimate, rustic chapel connected to a gorgeous reception area, Briar Rose Place.
This bride allowed herself to forget about the BLIZZARD and focus on HER MAN!!!

We had a blast!
Congrats Mr and Mrs Adam Hodges!

Hmmmm.... Well...........

So I see a pattern here.....
I am ALWAYS behind on my blog.
So I guess I should say sorry, but I have a feeling this won't be changing!

A few weeks ago I visited Oklahoma City for the 1st time. I went to celebrate my sister-in-law, Mandy's, bachelorette party. I had a BLAST!!!!! I love all the women that came along. I was excited to meet her best-friend and bridesmaid Carla, she is crazy! We head to Oklahoma City again this Friday for the wedding and I cannot wait to hang out with all these ladies again!
There are some pics I will not post on here, for fear my life may be in jeopardy!

The cousins, Jen and Mendi, and my sister-in-law, Alicia

Me and Carla

Me and Mandy, the bride-to-be

And of course I have to put up some pics of Cade. He is SO excited about the weather being nice. He LOVES LOVES LOVES outside. And he loves his car! He was hoping to pick up some chicks!

And the girls have become his best friends. He walks around barking all day. So funny!!!!

And here is my HANDSOME hubby! He went up looking for bad guys in the DPS helicopter. He wasn't successful, but he had fun trying!

And on a more serious note. At church last Sunday, a great message was taught. It's interesting how our society correlates busyness with success and importance. But have you ever just felt too busy or burned out?? Well that's because busyness is not healthy 24/7. Jesus took many moments to rest, rest his soul, sleep, and pray. Remember: Without a rhythm of rest, our hearts become hardened
