fun-filled family weekend

My parents were here all weekend! It was so nice to hang out and relax (sort of)! Our weekend was pretty busy and we had to squeeze in wedding conversations while my mom sewed trim onto our bedroom draperies. She's the hardest worker I know and she didn't stop all weekend. I picked them up at the airport on Friday and I made (with mom's supervision) shrimp and grits for supper. It turned out to be really good! We just hung out all night and all fell asleep on the couch.

On Saturday morning, mom and I drove to West Columbia for a shower in honor of Todd and me hosted by some of Todd's family friends-- and new friends of mine. Todd met my dad and his dad at our house and they all built our storage shed in the backyard. The shower was beautiful and the brunch was fantastic! I got to see some friends of mine, meet some great ladies, and we got some truly beautiful things. Two of the best gifts of the day....

Lindsay Adams and her mother, Cathy, were two of the six hostesses of this great event. I've really enjoyed getting to know them. They are Todd's second family and I'm looking forward to them being my third family. They are the sweetest, most loving people and I already feel so fortunate to know them. Lindsay and her husband have a blog, too, and I love reading about her adventures in baseball land!
