pregnant bridesmaid and shower #2

This past weekend, Andrew and I traveled to my hometown, Huntingdon, Tennessee, for two wonderful celebrations. First, I was honored to stand beside one of my long-time best friends while she married her sweet husband. They are a beautiful, kind couple who love each other and the Lord, and their wedding was fabulous, despite the torrential downpours that threatened to ruin the reception site. The great thing about a small town is that people care about each other and are willing to band together on a Saturday to give a bride the wedding of her dreams. Saturday morning the tent was more of a swamp, but by 3:00 that afternoon there was an 8,000 square foot wooden floor down. The reception was saved, and the twins & I were able to boogie down to Super T all night long.

Me and the bride...isn't she beautiful?!?! And I must say that my alterations lady did a great job making a non-maternity dress fit around my twin-filled belly.

On Sunday, my sister (who traveled all the way from Virginia) and my aunts hosted a perfect shower for the twins. It was wonderful to see faces from my childhood, and the twins received many beautiful gifts. Lots of sweet blankets, outfits, diapers, and other items to store away as we await their arrival this fall!

I love cake!!!

Now we're prepping for our last bit of travel before my travel restrictions kick in. Andrew's sister Rebecca is home, so we will be visiting his family, and then we're off for our last kid-free beach trip. 25 weeks and counting!


  1. Love the pictures! So glad I was able to see you pregnant and celebrate my niece and nephew. Beach trips will be even more fun with the babies.
