Labor Day Vaca - The Countdown is ON!

Can I say that we are super excited for our Labor Day Vaca? Can I say that we are pumped to get a little bit of rest and relaxation! Yes I CAN!

The countdown is on! In a few days we will be winging our way to the North Carolina Shores to Bald Head Island.I am super excited about this because the O'Briens seem to be experts on NC, as that is where my mother-in-law and her family hail from. I have only heard about the wonders of this state, so I am excited to be included in all of this, so that one day I will have stories to make other people feel like they have missed out in life! =)
So Bald Head Island, you ask? Yeppers. It is one of the last islands of the Outerbanks Islands (OBX to those natives). It is not assessable by cars, you have to take a ferry over - then you are left with your feet, a bike or a golf cart to get you around this little place! AWESOME!

So send me your summer beach read recommendations, your addresses for post cards and your well wishes! Because we are blowing this popsicle stand!

Because some times you just need a good story...

I've seen dogs do some pretty crazy things, showing they're sometimes more in tune with us than we think they are. And here's one more to prove the point...

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Colvin!

That's right, they did it! They tied the knot.
On Saturday, August 8, 2009, my sissy married her sweetheart!

We had an oh-so-busy weekend of funness including bachelorette party, rehersal dinner, wedding and TEN MILLION errands in between. There were tons of laughs, lots of smiles, a few, but happy tears, many well wishes and most of all love!

What a wonderful gift God has given us with marriage, to not only join closer to the one we love, but to join families and friends too! So here's to the new Mr. and Mrs. Jamie Colvin!

We love you guys!

Wedding Week!

It's wedding week here in the Pate Household!

That's right, this Saturday Jennifer and Jamie are gonna get hitched!

We are all very excited that the massive amounts of wedding planning, errands, tears and traumas will all pay off!

Let's see, need to drop off cake plates, pick up programs (hopefully printed correctly), fix dress, figure out when the 'rentals are coming, pick up friends from the airport, finish planning girly fun night, enjoy girly fun night, mani/pedis (budget willing), rehersal, rehersal dinner, hair, makeup, WEDDING!

See, simple. Photos coming soon to a blog near you!
