September Catch Up

Not sure how it has happened but we are at the half way mark in September and I haven't blogged. Just to fill you in quickly, Matt was gone to New Jersey for work training the last week in August and the first week of September. He got home the Friday before Labor Day, we went to Atlanta for a dear friend of mine's wedding, Matt got the flu last Tuesday. I joined a dinner group that started last week and we met at the Bistro: fun! Landry Grace started dance today. Add a lot of small activities into the mix and we have just been really busy. At night, the last thing I wanted to do was get on the Internet. I've also been trying to stay off facebook as it is a time consumer and there are more productive things to do. Soooo that's everything in a tiny nutshell. Enjoy the pics!

Our dinner group with several missing due to functions or being out of town. It was so nice to meet new people and catch up with old friends.
Labor Day weekend we headed to Atlanta for Ashley LaBudde's wedding. We met 14 years ago at running camp in Brevard, NC. We were the only girls in our running group and ultimately became very good friends. Due to me having lots of family in Atlanta(where Ash is from), we saw each other multiple times when in high school and even more when in our college years and after. I can think of no one more deserving of happiness!!
I have always thought Ashley looked a lot like Julia Roberts. Crazy that they are both from Smyrna, GA and grew up in the same Catholic church. Useless tidbit of info I thought I'd leave you with, free of charge!
Today was LGT's first day of ballet. We were in a rush when I picked her up from school and she was a little cranky, but when she saw her buddies Bella Grace and Mallory from church, she was thrilled!!!

My mom has laughed at my excitement over dance class. This stems from my childhood experience with dance. I did not like it AT ALL. My parent's surely spent money they did not have and I would sit in the corner and refuse. Opps....hope LG likes it but if not, we'll find something else!

Other than that life is good. I have been frequenting the streets early in the a.m. again(running) and am SO ready for some cooler weather. This morning it was 66 degrees on our run and felt SO GOOD! It sure is hard getting up an hour and a half early just to run but the feeling I get when the run is over is worth the lost hours of sleep. Have a great week!
