There’s a lot of fun stuff I wanted to share with y’all, but I promise it’s all worth looking at because I saved the best for last!
1. The promise of seeing The Hunger Games this weekend! I am so excited to see Katniss, Peeta and Gale come to life. I am hoping that we can go to a theater that isn’t super crowded with screaming tweens, but it may be inevitable. You know what they say: If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
I seriously can’t watch the movie trailer without getting chills.
2. My sweet friend, Jennifer (of Life in the Green House) wrote a wonderful blog post called “Carpe or Be Carpe-ed.“ I encourage all of you to read it and add Jennifer’s blog to your Reader. She’s a great writer with a beautiful heart.
5. I saw this party last week on Hostess With the Mostess blog. The talented Kate Landers hosted a “Tortilly Adorable” party for her son, who has torticollis and plagiocephaly, and had just received his “helmet” to correct his head shape. It is the sweetest little party to bring awareness to these two conditions and help people understand why these babies wear the helmets and doc bands.

6. Finally, back in July my best friend got married. Her name was Catherine Traylor and she was marrying Sean Parks. So it was the Traylor-Parks wedding. Get it? Hee hee…
Anyway, they had a gorgeous ceremony in Northwest Arkansas and then had the most fun, down-home, backyard reception at her parents’ home up in the hills in Bentonville, Arkansas. They even had an airstream trailer as the backdrop for their bar to make light out of the hilarious coincidence of their names.
I wanted to show y’all their wedding video. You have to watch the whole thing. It is the most fun thing you’ll ever watch! I promise!
Pen Weddings did the videography and I just love everything they’ve done to capture the best of Catherine and Sean’s wedding day. (You may even catch a glimpse of me as the matron of honor shedding a few tears.) And y’all, Pen Weddings is the best. I am seriously impressed with all of their videos.
