traveling across GA

These past few days have been a whirlwind.  An awesome, exciting, full of family whirlwind.  

As I mentioned in the previous posts, last Thursday the non-Augustans traveled to Augusta to support our dad as he received his award.  We headed back early Friday morning just in time for work and school!

On Saturday, all the non-Carrolltonians traveled to C'ton to attend the 7th (maybe?!) annual Blue Jean Ball, which supports West GA Habitat for Humanity.  I'm proud to say that my sister, Jennifer, is all the creative brains behind this event.  She's so talented, and the BBB is not only a fun affair (with an amazingly decorated barn, outdoor bonfire, yummy Low Country BBQ, fun bands, and dancing!), but it's also their biggest fundraiser.  

And yesterday we had our first baby shower!!  Gma Sue-Sue hosted the event at her house, along with Aunt Kelly, my friend (and honorary Aunt) Jessica, and one of our Augusta family friends, Marilee.  I could go on and on, and believe me I will as soon as I have some pictures to accompany my words, but it was amazing.  And really made this feel like the real thing (as if my ever-expanding belly hadn't done the trick!).  More to come...

Speaking of baby showers, my sweet friend and co-worker, Dawn, crafted these AMAZING invitations for a work shower coming up at the end of February.  

Are they not the most adorable invitations that you've ever seen?!  

She used baby clothes (sleepers, to be accurate), sewn to make an envelope that you had to unbutton to get to the adorable invite, which was backed with gingham fabric and topped off with a sweet bow.  My iPhone photos don't do it any justice, so you should go to her blog to see her photos and to get a better idea of how she created them.  She's one of the most talented, creative people I know, so this is one shower I am so anxious for...just to see the decor!!
