March Madness

I love the Madness!

This season of the NCAA Basketball tournament has been crazy! No one predicted Tennessee to make it out of the first round, but we made to it the Elite Eight! For the first time in school history, we made past the sweet sixteen! It was a really fun few weeks! I am so sad we lost by 1 point to get to the final four, but have never been more proud of my team!

Happy Birthday Kaitlin!

Happy 1st Birthday Kaitlin Grace!

One year ago, you were this tiny, little, brand new baby!

I can't believe how fast this year has gone!

Birthdays are a big deal to me... so I can't wait till I get to celebrate with you! I already sent you a little gift basket full of goodies appropriate for a one year old! :) I can't wait to see your new trendy clothes that I picked out on you! I am excited to celebrate you and remember how thankful we are for you on this very special day!
Love you so much!

Baby Button

I threw a baby shower this weekend for Lauren and Button Burkhart. Lauren and Jerad are having a girl, but they are not telling anyone the name so 'Button" is what we are calling it. It was a shower for all the BA mom's and we had a good time! It was a beautiful weekend so we probably lost a few guests to the amazing sunshine weather!
Here is a picture of the petifores that I was obsessed with! I got them at a bakery called sweet n sassy here in Nashville and they are AMAZING!! And they should be since they were not cheap! :) One of my Young Life girls calls them "booty cakes."

Our company had a little work social at the Predators game last night! We got the privilege of sitting in the all-inclusive zone. It was a great time with co-workers and a really exciting game! I am surprised to say that I am starting to really get into Hockey! Especially on the heals of the Olympics, I am starting to understand it and enjoy it much more!

Highlights of the game: Getting on the jumbrotron, seeing Scott Hamilton (olympic figure skater), and a Predators win!

Home sweet home!

I spent last weekend in Knoxville and had a wonderful time! The last time I was home, I was SO SICK with the horrible, terrible, awful stomach flu. I spent the whole time in bed! This weekend, I got to go out with my friends, and visit with my family! I got to see Amy, Kory, and Kaitlin which is always so fun and I got to celebrate my friend Katie's birthday with lots of friends! I had the best time!
Look how happy Kaitlin was to see me?! She is such a cutie.... I am totally obsessed! She is just like her Aunt Rachel.... very dramatic and must be around people all the time!
