This weekend was pretty much a blur!
After running the numbers, I spent 24 of 48 hours in the car or at Cinderella-related events, and even though on Monday I was dying, we had an absolute blast!!
I feel like I'm always saying this too, but prepare yourself for photo overload!
Friday we started our day at the doctor's for these two to have their post-pneumonia check up, and happily they are doing perfectly well!
This has been a major concern of mine for the past month because their little lungs were so sick, but the doctors are thrilled with how healthy & strong the are. Praise Him for such wonderful care and healing of these babies! We still have their x-rays to get the results back from, but seriously every single test came back completely normal and healthy!
To God be the GLORY!!
This cool kid and I enjoyed some Snapchat fun while we waited on the doctor!!
I was loving my Lipsense combo too this day!
Fire-N-Ice + Praline Rose + Glossy Gloss
If you've not heard of or tried Lipsense, you seriously must! It stays on all day long. It's completely smudge proof, and it just requires gloss throughout the day to keep it looking fabulous all day long!
Nataleigh and I hit the road super early for an all-day trip to the Pigeon Forge/Knoxville area. We had a lot planned, but we were determined to have fun!
First up was dress fittings for Dallas!
This made it so real, on so many levels. My little fashionista had herself just a morning full of modeling, and she loved every moment. Her favorite thing is the UGG rug that she continuously rolled on and made 'snow angels' on it.
After her dress fitting, we headed to Maryville for our send-off luau where almost all of the girls going to Dallas enjoyed yummy food, fellowship, and fun one last time before they start the busyness of competition.
First up were royalty pictures!
Ms. Jill & her girls!
Tennessee's 2017-2018 girls!
Sisterhood bonds were definitely formed this day. Being so new to the group, I just want to brag on our family for a minute. I never once felt out of place or unwanted. These girls and their amazing mamas took us under their wings & just loved on us so much. I'm so thankful for these friendships!
Then they changed into their luau attire of matching swimsuits and grass skirts and leis!
Seriously so cute!
Nataleigh & Kendyl
Emma & Nataleigh
Rissa & Nataleigh
Nataleigh & Sarah-Anne
After some storms rolled through, it was finally time to swim!
This little thing wanted to hang out with the cool teens, and they were so amazing with her! They loved and laughed all day with my silly little!
So much fun!
So thankful for our Cinderella family!!
And this beautiful woman, Ms. Jill, means the world to Nataleigh! Nataleigh thinks she is the most amazing person she's ever met. We are so thankful for the investment she's making in my little one!
While we were away, the boys sure did play!
The new Spiderman movie with friends!
And super-sized popcorn!
After the movie, the boys stopped by the farm to check out the newest Hensley baby!
We've not named this beaut yet, but she's so gorgeous!
And then they stopped by one of our favorite playgrounds for a little fun in the sun!
We got home so late from Knoxville that we kind of crashed Saturday night! Sunday we were all dragging to get out of bed, but we were so excited to get back to Hickory Tree.
We seriously love our church so much, and Joe just brought such an amazing word. I love how God uses little things to just reaffirm what he wants you to hear. Sunday evening I was reading one of my favorite bloggers, Rhonda, shared the exact scriptures that Joe preached from. I love when God just completely shows up and shows out!
After church, Nataleigh and I headed back to Knoxville for pageant practice!
This was overwhelming, but it was so good for me to hear a little more of what to expect from seasoned veterans!!
She also had fun getting tattoos with her friends!!
We picked up yummy pizza on our way home for dinner, and then Nataleigh enjoyed some front porch time while I unloaded the car!
I hope y'all's weekend was as fun as our's was. It was busy for sure, but there was so much JOY found in these moments this weekend!
