The decision

So thanks to all the wonderful people who commented about my hair dilemma you really helped sway me to my decision. I am going to do it! Not sure when, I called and my hairdresser is not in today or tomorrow :( But I promise to take pictures and post them right after I get it done! Hopefully I will have a fun new fall do!!

Hair do...or don't?

If you know me, then you know I am the type of person who when I want to do something I want it to be done the very second I think of it, some might call that being impatient, however I like to use the word "spontaneous". Like I can't just sit and think about things for weeks before deciding to do them...if I get an idea I'm like in the car 3 min. later on my way to do it. While I can see how in some situations this fiery motivated side of me can be a very good thing, it can also lead to a very not-so-smart thing. One of the things that usually suffers from this personality trait of mine is my hair! Don't know why but it's like the second I get the itch to do something different with it I just do it and unfortunately it has turned out not so great on a few occasions. So yesterday I got the itch...I want something new for my hair want to change it up a bit BUT this time I am going to make sure and think about it first, not make any rash decisions, maybe ask the Mr. and anyone who actually reads this what they think (even though my first instinct is to pick up the phone and make a hair appointment today) I will try to with hold! Well here's my thought.....bangs. Bangs and I haven't had the greatest relationship in the past but I think I can get over it and try once again. So this is what I am thinking:

just a soft bang that I can either wear straight or push to the side for the side sweep.

Now here is a picture of me from about 2 years ago (one of my bad hair experiences) however after they grew out from the 2 cm. long bangs the stupid woman cut me I think they looked kinda cute but I was too traumatized to get them trimmed again thinking that I would end up with the Chinese short bangs again!

Not the greatest picture of me but this is seriously the only time I wore them down because the rest of the time they were still so short, not to mention crooked....thanks 60 year old hair dresser!

Anyways please feel free to comment...give me your opinion should I take the plunge or just get my hair trimmed and stay safe?

Well if you live anywhere in the Atlanta or metro Atlanta area you are well aware of all the rain and flooding we have had! It is so crazy I mean at one point I-20, I-285, I-75, and I-575 were all closed not to mention the hundreds of back roads! I think the death toll is up to 9 people now and so many have lost their houses, cars, and businesses! And to think a year ago we were in the biggest drought in history and now we are in the biggest flood in Atlanta's history. Makes you wonder what God is trying to teach us...are we not appreciating the small things enough? Are we all too caught up in materialistic belongings? Deep, I know, but events like these make you really think about the bigger picture and if there is something that we are missing. All I really know is that Matt and I are so blessed to have our health, a (dry) roof over our heads, food for our bellies, and a Father that takes care of us!

Those 4 words that changed my life!

It is so hard to believe but a year ago today my wonderful (now) husband asked me to be his wife. It is crazy how fast time goes by...since the Mr. popped the question we have BOTH graduated from college, added another nephew, gotten married, seen friends get married, and so much more! This past year has been the most amazing year of my life. I am so blessed and can't wait to see where the next year will take me and the Mr.! Here are some pictures from a year ago:

Right after he popped the question...I wish I could go back to that night, what an amazing feeling!

Showing off my new bling! He couldn't have done better picking it out (he only had a couple of subtle hints)!

The set up! So surprised to see him in the dressing room at a bridal salon I had no idea what was going on!

Coming out to a room full of loved ones...I was so glad that we got to share that moment with some of our family, it just made it even more special!

Fun weekends!

So for some reason it wouldn't let me move the pictures around, so they are not in the right order...sorry!
The UWG Football Stadium
Beth's Bachlorette Party

Out to eat for Beth's Bachlorette party

The brand new Alpha Gamma Delta house

Nate and his Daugher Addison for her first UGA game
Matt and I have had two amazing weekends in a row! We have been feeling a little bit like recluses lately because we normally don't do much on the weekends for whatever reason it may be. But these past two weekends have been so fun!
The weekend before last we went to Carrollton on Friday and I helped out with Alpha Gams recruitment, it was also my first time seeing the brand new Alpha Gam house which is beautiful! It was so fun to see all the girls and feel like I was back in college (but it was also so great not to have to actually rush!) I spent the night with my best friends that night and Matt had a guys night with his old roommates!
The next day we went to visit some of our good friends Nate and Bekah Conner who just welcomed the most precious baby girl (Addison Makayla Conner). She is so adorable and we were so glad to have the chance to get to see her!
After that Matt and I and a bunch of friends went to the first West Georgia football game in the new stadium! For those of you who don't know West Georgia just now decided to step it up (after over 100 years), and they finally built a greek village, football stadium, and coliseum! Anyways that was such a neat experience to be a part of that and spend even more time with friends. The rest of the weekend we spent recouping!
This past weekend on Friday we went to eat at my best friend and her husbands house (Jessica & Jacob) it was so much fun talking, eating, and even playing some games! Then Saturday I went to a bachlorette party for my good friend Beth in was a great time. We got a room at the Palomar hotel in Atl. then went to Marlow's Tavern for dinner and went out to Cosmolava after that. It was such a blast...I love all these girls and had the most fun!
The next day Matt, Christine and the boys, Matt's mom, and Kyle went to a family reunion for Matt's mom's side of the family which was a rather interesting day but fun none the less. Needless to say we were exhausted by the time 8:00pm rolled around on Sunday night and we are looking forward to having a rather lazy weekend this weekend!

Happy B-Day Charley!

Well it's actually a little late...better late than never though huh? Our little Charley is 1 year old! Who is Charley you might ask? He is our sweet, trouble making, annoying little Cavachon pup! We got Charley almost a year ago now and I really can't believe just how much he has grown... it's crazy! We have had a great time with him though...we have cleaned up lots of messes, given him an uncountable number of baths (next time we will not get a white dog), had plenty of laughs at him (he has no space awareness so he falls off things a lot) , had many snuggle moments, frustrating moments, and lots and lots of kisses! It is funny how dogs can put a smile on your face no matter what mood you are in, and Charley has certainly brought a few more smiles to our lives! We love you little Char Char Happy Birthday.
Really soon after we got him...he's so little The Aycock's at Christmas 08...Char open your eyes! "I promise I didn't do it!"Stuck! This is after his first haircut that I gave him, must say I am pretty proud of my grooming skills!
