ITS WEDDING WEEEEK!!

ITS MY WEDDING WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am over the moon with excitement.

I have had NO time to even get on my computer this weekend.
Which was amazing.

Friday night Caleb and I spent relaxing, and grabbing some chick fil a (I think my wedding diet went out the window like 2 weeks ago, whoops!)

Saturday morning, I hung out with Caleb for a bit cleaning the apartment. Then Saturday afternoon was my BACHELORETTE party. I think I'm going to do a separate post on this entirely because there are too many funny moments to relive (half of which will not be shared), haha! 

But here are a few snippets from my weekend through the life of my iPhone...





Although, I won't dive into details just yet; my bridesmaids made this day PERFECT for me. Seriously. It was so fun, and all my best friends were with me to celebrate my "last fling before the ring" ;) I can't thank each of these girls enough for their roles in my life...my best friends, my sisters, my LADIIIESSS! Although many parts of this night were embarrassing, and I was mortified, I had the best time & if I could go back I'd do it all again... embarrassing stuff & all ;)

Moving on to a more serious matter.
Guys.
My mom came home from Hawaii for my wedding. We weren't sure if she was going to be able to make it, and Thursday morning I got a text from her telling me she finally scored a plane ticket...and she will be here ALL! WEEK! If you didn't read this post, this will give you some background on this topic.

Long story short - my mom went on vacation to Hawaii in February of 2012, and decided not to come back. So, it had been nearly a year and 4 months since I'd seen her. Yesterday I pulled in my driveway after church, and she was knocking on the window from my bedroom...

My eyes welled up into tears and I couldn't hold it together. I had prayed every morning about how to handle this, but knew that everything would be fine. We hugged, jumped up and down, and cried some more. It was awesome. I've missed my momma.

We had my aunt and uncle over, and my little cousins, and my grandparents cooked on the grill. It was such an amazing day spent with family, especially since its my last weekend living at home. Ahh, bittersweet.


There are so many emotions I am feeling this week. All happy, of course. Still though, I know this week is going to FLY BY! 

Any of you who want to follow along on my wedding week can follow me on Instagraaaam, and be excited with me. All of your emails, tweets, snap chats, etc have made me SO happy and I can't thank you all enough for your encouragement and advice.
