Amanda has dropped her anchor!

Yet another bachelorette weekend has come and gone. 

If the bachelorette had as much fun as all of her guests, then it truly was a success! I think come tomorrow (Tuesday) I'll be 100% fully recovered from one of the most fun weekends I've ever had. 

When I joined Dee Gee I didn't realize that I'd meet girls that I'd be friends with for the rest of my life, and to be able to spend three full days with my core college crew was truly a blessing! I haven't laughed so hard in a really long time. I think it's safe to say that The Circle will be planning an annual trip to many places tropical for years and years to come.

Yeah, that's right!
Who dat?!
The whole group!
It's not a real party unless there is a T-shirt.

The beautiful bride-to-be!
My favorite part of the weekend!
Oh, just a bushwhacker with a glow in the dark "straw"...

Bachelorette weekends sure do take a lot of planning but the months and months of organizing and crowding people's email sure did pay off! Can't wait to be with everyone on November 17 when Amanda marries one of the luckiest guys in the world!

 Your MOH's love you New New!

Busy: Full of or characterized by activity

Busy is an understatement for the past couple of weeks.

Where do I start? Oh! I know where. I RAN MY FIRST 5K! This girl right here who thought she'd never ever be able to run a mile, ran 3.1, and Brad did too! (That's a lot of exclamation points I know, but I'm still pretty excited about it.) Sometime in March of this year I saw something about a local boot camp on someone's Facebook wall. I was hesitant because 1. I don't run and 2. I don't run. Putting all fear and hesitation behind me, I joined the boot camp in April and it has been THE best thing that I could have done for myself. Brad joined a couple of months after and we love it. This weekend, with my boot camp instructor encouraging me the whole way, I ran 3.1 miles. She's the best! I would recommend Versus Boot Camp to ANYONE and EVERYONE. I'm accomplishing goals and doing things I never thought were possible and I owe it all to my Coach Jamie! It truly is amazing what a little self confidence, lots of encouragement, a few goals and some serious determination will allow you to achieve. Bottom line: Don't say you can't because you can.

Prior to the 5K we had a hurricane sweep through the area, spent five days in Grayton Beach and attended Hattiesburg's first ever Fashion Night Out. 

Just a few little photos from the past couple of weeks.

Those guys from Click sure can put on a party! Marie and I had a great best friend date last Thursday and I think it took me two whole days to recover.

If you haven't been to this store yet, RUN AND GO NOW!

This weekend we head to the beach to celebrate Amanda, who's wedding is coming up in November. A three-day countdown to an Orange Beach Bachelorette weekend begins now! I'm sure I'll have lots of pictures to post and lots of stories that I'll keep to myself after this weekend coming up! ;)
