Can I recap a weekend on a Thursday?!

I have been totally MIA this week, I know. However, I'm not going to apologize for it, because a few short days away from blogging was necessary. I had an absolute BLAST this past weekend with my sister and bro-in-law in town, seeing all my grandparents and spending father's day with my dad as well as my in-laws. It was jam packed and even with an extra day off.... I was worn out! I am not ashamed to admit that I have went to bed at 9pm (or earlier) the past 2 nights!

I also had a rough day at work last Friday, like really rough. For the most part I love my job and don't have many complaints but Friday was the worst. I won't bore you all with details, but it's been weighing heavily on my mind. Enough so that I just haven't felt like blogging.

Enough with that-- I'm going to overload you with some pictures today :) I ALSO don't want to forget to wish Ms. Allison a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! You should stop by her blog and tell her too! ;)

These cuties were in town! Sister Britt & her hubs Aaron
(Yep, Aaron/Erin gets confusing at times!)

A Father's Day gift for my dad-- he really did like it, despite his expression here ;)

Excuse me in all my fatness--- diet started immediately after I saw this picture!!

A grill-out wouldn't be complete without cornhole

Nice form! ;)

Possibly my fave picture of my Granny and I to-date!

Her backyard gardening skills put my yard to shame!!

Loved this cute hummingbird feeder

Precious :) Anyone else think my Pappy looks like Clint Eastwood?

Grandparents with their grandaughters + husbands!
Yes, I'm the idiot wearing jeans in 92 degree weather.

We also stopped over to see my Mamaw and Papaw, this is the only picture I got over there, whoops!
I think the family was getting tired of my camera in their face ;)

Sunday we got to spend time with J's family for yet another grillout. I'm not complaining.

The in-laws precious/crazy dogs that I can't get a good picture of!! lol

Colorful snack food

Brother & Kbug! <----One of these days she's going to start a blog, I swear! ;)

Funny cards and yes, a matching shirt to MY dad ;) Let's hope they don't golf together!

All the men!

Just keepin' things classy!


So that's the most brief summary I could give. Let me just say, I was so thankful that this was this weekend I got to spend with all my family. After a rough Friday, it was truly just what I needed. I hadn't seen my sister since Christmas so it was a good catch-up time. Hopefully J and I will be visiting them this October for a long weekend. Just 4 months to go ;)

Now I must catch up on blogland!!!!
