Happy Mother's Day

It was a busy busy weekend! On Saturday Casey studied for his CFA Exam while I got a min/pedi and went to the mall. Hey – I had to do something to get out of the house for a few hours while he studied! Then that night we went to Jessica’s parents house for her graduation party. Poor Jess – she’s so excited to be finished with her masters. I don’t think she realizes that playing adult isn’t very fun.

Today is Mother’s Day. (I love you Mom!) It really was a great day. We woke up and went to Madelynne’s Dedication Ceremony at Dejay and M’Lynne’s church in Midlothian. It was a very nice little ceremony and she is a very pretty little girl.
After church we went back to Dejay and M’Lynne’s house and enjoyed a day of fellowship and family. Casey and I were really sad that we weren’t able to see his mom at all this weekend – we will have to make it up to her!
