scenes from a weekend

This past weekend was kind of a blur, but in a good way. We spent the weekend at my mother's house because my mother and I had to get up and go to a work event early the next morning (yes, we work together!). On Friday night, we went to my little sister's first football game as a varsity cheerleader at my old high school. It was so fun to see her dressed up, standing on the same track at the same field where I marched a hundred different shows. I can't believe she's going to graduate this year!

My teeth look extra white in this photo. Hooray for the VSCO cam app, y'all!

On Saturday, Pierce went home to work the Falcons game while me, mama, and Lucy went to an event early in the afternoon. Lucy wasn't quite as chill as she normally is so, unfortunately, I spent most of my time trying to keep her calm in the theater lobby instead of getting the footage I wanted for a show I'm producing. I did manage to get some lovely shots before and after, though! And, later, we went searching for this beautiful little castle garden we'd heard so many things about. And when we found it we didn't want to leave. It was so magical! The only thing that kept me from staying was the 100 degree heat. And a squirmy, fussy baby.

On Sunday, we went to a baby shower for my god-brother Elijah's new baby boy. We might have also scarfed down some QT hot dogs on the way there because, hello, delicious. Elijah is six years younger than me and we spent much of our youth playing hide-and-go-seek in his family's basement and watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory for the billionth time (a fact he reminded me of yesterday). At some point in his childhood, he declared his undying love for me and promised to ask for my hand in marriage one day (another funny story that was brought up during the shower, much to his chagrin, by a number of his relatives), but it looks like he's got himself a sweet little family these days :). I'm so happy for him! 

So grainy! I wish we'd gotten a better photo, but that's life with an iPhone.

After the shower, we all went back to my mom's house for a nap and then Kati took me to meet Pierce so we could head home. It was a long, tiring weekend, but oh so good! 

I tell you what, though. It's that time of year again...the time when the stifling August heat gets the heck outta here and gives way to cool, crisp weather and pumpkin spice lattes. I imagine I'm just one of a thousand bloggers typing that sentence right now, but I'll take it. C'mon fall!
