Three's Company!


What a nice change of pace it was to have company this past week! Brad & Kendall flew in on Saturday afternoon (despite a delay at DFW...what do you expect?) and stayed through Thursday. Granted, I don't live in the most exciting area of the country, or the state of North Carolina for that matter, but we managed to have a good time just hanging out & visiting all of the little towns nearby. You can see in the pictures what an adorable couple they are. Watching them together reminds me of Ryan & me four years ago when we had just gotten engaged, and honestly it made me miss Ryan like CRAZY! I felt like such a 3rd wheel all week, which is silly because it's my brother & future sister-in-law for heaven's sake! No really, I appreciate them coming more than they'll ever know...my house is awfully quiet now that they aren't here. When I got home on Thursday night, the dogs were running back to the guest room looking for Kendall, then they would pout because she wasn't there. (And Harley especially misses her "Uncle Brad"!) As much as I wish Ryan could have been here to hang out with the three of us, I can only be excited about all the fun times we'll all have once we're back in Texas.


OK, I can't honestly say that my house is really that quiet right now. After my company left, it was Jack & Harley's turn to have a houseguest. I agreed to keep Robin's puppy (a Jack Russell named "Pumpkin") until Tuesday, and let me just tell you...don't EVER try to have 3 hyperactive terriers in the house at once if you can help it! Luckily, the three of them are quickly becoming friends, and I think Jack & Harley are even teaching the puppy a thing or two.

do you think that if i came and stayed with you that jack would come back to the guest room and look for me? fat chance without him curling up his nose and showing his teeth. we missed you at the wedding yesterday. it was a blast from the past with all the CHS people there.

so glad you had fun with brad and kendell....wished you could've been there yesterday, but hopefully we will get to see each other soon. I'm w/ Brittney on the plans we really should get some plans together....why don't you and brittney see if y'all can come up with a time frame, since y'all are probably the busiest this summer....I am cool w/ whatever!!! Love you!

I thought about you all yesterday and wish I could've been at the wedding. I can't wait to hear all about it! I emailed the 3 of you because I didn't feel like posting the details of my summer plans on my blog, so get back to me and let me know what you think. Love ya!

Pumpkin looks like a little Harley!
So cute--but I'm sure she's not nearly as cute as my granddogs!
do you realize that you'll be here in less than 3 weeks???
