Parties, Wedding Dresses & a Fish Fry

And of course, Monday morning rolls around again, just like it always does. And this week will be the first full 5-day work week for me, after so much wedding stuff and a holiday last week, so obviously I'm not looking forward to that... What I am looking forward to though, is another week full of wedding planning before Jeff's twins arrive on Saturday! And of course I'm looking forward to them being here! But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's do a weekend recap. It's been a couple of weeks since I've even done one, so it's definitely time. So let's jump right into it!

Met Jeff after work, and then headed out to a graduation party for one of my youth
Rode an old bicycle around the cul-de-sac waiting to help a family member of hers. Love the cruiser-style bike!
Had a great time eating ice cream and catching up with some old friends and youth and hanging out
Headed back to Jeff's house and watched "Fast Five" in order to get ready to go see the new one sometime soon!

Jeff took this on his phone, and it turned out so great and cute! :)
Jeff picked me up from my house, and we headed out to another graduation party for one of my youth
We played ladder golf and ate some yummy cookout food

Then Jeff dropped me off at Vocelles Bridal with my Mama, sister & aunt for another dress appointment!
(I found one I loved there, but it was about $600 over the budget...sad.)
After that store, we went back up to Thomasville again to visit The New Image, where I had found one with my Mama about a month ago, but wanted to wait until my sister could see it too...
And we ended up buying it!!! (And this one was only $75 over the budget :) But my Papa said it was OK!)

Later that night, Jeff and I went out to meet some friends for dinner at Miller's, then went to their house for game night

Sunday school and church, and it was Graduation Recognition Sunday, so we honored my favorite class of seniors
(This is the one class that I have been with from 6th grade through 12th grade, so they're very special to me! And this is only about half of them - there are many more who I also love a whole lot too, but couldn't make it to church yesterday.)

Grabbed a real quick lunch with Jeff at Moe's, and then went to Bed, Bath & Beyond to start our first registry!
We were there for four hours, and it was exhausting, but we're now officially ready to accept gifts ;)
Then we went to my Grandparent's house to celebrate May family birthdays -  Jeff (fiance), Aaron (cousin) & Bo (brother-in-law) - with a giant fish fry

Tilapia, catfish, shrimp, crab cakes, frog legs & hush puppies. Yum.

It was quite a busy weekend, but of course it was a great one! I got to spend time with family and friends and youth and Jeff, and that's what makes me the happiest - the amazing people in my life! I was seriously tired and dragging this morning when I first woke up, but it's worth it to be able to enjoy my weekend so much! So it's A-OK with me. We have quite a bit more wedding plans to conquer this week, so it'll be crazy busy again. But I'm at a really fun point of wedding planning right now, so I'm excited about doing everything this week! As more stuff starts happening, I'll definitely be posting more about it all. For instance, I'll probably write a post later this week about the dress-finding process, so look for that later!

Anyways, the weekend was good, and of course I wish it just could have been longer! Don't we all though?! I hope y'all had good weekends as well, and that your Monday morning isn't too rough so far. Can't wait to catch up with y'all and read about your weekends as well :) Happy Monday!

Linking up with Covered in Grace, Sami's Shenanigans & Synfully Delicious.
