Lots of fun stuff coming up!

I was just looking at my calendar and realized how busy our lives are about to get! There are so many exciting things coming up in the next few months. I have a feeling the rest of the year is going to FLY by!

I have two shopping trips coming up at the beginning of September. The first is going to be with my BFF, Christy. We are heading up to Nashville for the day. Hopefully to get some really cute FALL clothes! I am so ready for cooler weather to get here. The next weekend, my mom and I are going over to Atlanta for a couple of days. She really wanted to do a mother/daughter trip, so we thought we would go visit their outlets. I'm super excited about that too, because I hear they have a great Pottery Barn outlet! 
The 24th of September is me and the Hubby's 4th anniversary! I can't believe it has already been 4 years. I hope to be able to do something very special for that as well. We usually try to go up to Nashville for the night. Who knows what we might get into this year!

This will probably be our busiest month! We go up to MD the first weekend for my brother's wedding. I'm really excited. We are going to visit D.C. the day before. This will be our first trip on a plane with Wyatt. It should be rather interesting to say the least!

The weekend after we return from MD, we head down to Gulf Shores for a friend's wedding. I am so thrilled. I thought we weren't going to be able to do a beach trip this year, but since it's work related (I'm doing the pictures), we are heading down for the weekend! It will be a short trip, but it will be with lots of friends, so we are bound to have a great time :)

Ok, so most of you know that we aren't HUGE football fans. I mean, we support Auburn, but as far as being obsessed with football, that's just not us. However, we decided to rent an RV and go down for a game this fall! I'm so excited. When we were dating, one of our best friends lived in Auburn and we would go down for football games all the time (well, tailgating, we never actually went in!). I can't wait to go. It should be fun, and maybe we can decide if we are going to purchase an RV or not. This will be our little trial run!

Harvest time will be in full force by October. The hubby will be a busy man for sure! I love this time of year. All the colorful crops, and the harvest decorations. I can't wait. I am doing a "Fall on the Farm" session here at our place so there will be lots of kiddos dressing in their cute little clothes getting great pictures made! I'm really excited. It should be lots of fun.
Hayrides!!! They are the best. We are going to do one here for all of our friend's kids this year. I love to see how excited little ones get on hayrides. Brings back childhood memories for me :)

In November, we are planning a trip to the Smoky Mountains with another couple and their kids. We used to travel a lot together before we all had youngin's of our own! I'm so excited. I love getting a cabin and just relaxing. Of course, we will take one day to go to Cades Cove, and pack a picnic. My parents did that for us when we were kids. I still have the pictures! Us girls will do some shopping while we are there too, I'm sure (Do you notice a trend? I work shopping in wherever I can!).
The night before Thanksgiving, we host a "Wing Cookin'" here at our farm for all of our service men, and the local farmers in our area. It has grown to be one of my favorite events of the year. Before I came into Morgan's life, it was just for men. Well, I changed all that. Now, wives are welcome! We have a great time, and I think it is something we will do for years to come.

Well, we all know what that means! Christmas time again. My favorite holiday. I'm looking forward to it so much this year because I think Wyatt will really enjoy it. It will be a nice ending to a great year!
