Congressional Baseball Game!

Turner and I went to the 48th Annual Congressional Baseball game on Wednesday. It was so funny! It's a baseball game where congressmen and senators play against each other: Republicans versus Democrats. The Republicans had won the past 8 games in a row so we had high hopes, but it didn't turn out that way this year. The Democrats won 15-9. It's a lot of fun, the crowd gets really into the game and the congressman/senators have a great time. They do it to benefit The Washington Literacy Council.

James's Wedding and George Strait!

This past weekend we went to our friend James Mullings' wedding and then hurried to Bristow, VA for the George Strait concert! Julianne Hough and Blake Shelton performed as well! We had a wonderful time and used our new cornhole board for the first time! Justin grilled some great Turkey Burgers and we had a blast. It rained and stormed through King George's whole performance, but we still loved every minute of it! On Sunday, we had Integration and Involvement Day at church and I'm part of a team helping with this, so that was exciting! I also had a pool day with the girls for a goodbye to our friend Lauren who is moving to Kansas to go to KU lawschool. It was a great weekend!

The first of the catch up posts! NC Wedding Shower Weekend!

So I'm going to do a few posts and catch us up! The Weekend of June 5-7 we went back to North Carolina for two wedding showers and some wedding planning. We finalized the reception menu and I got my hair done and had bridal portraits! Our first wedding shower was Saturday night at Lisa, Carly and Christine's house. It was fantastic! It was a tailgate themed shower and the girls did an AMAZING job planning it. I'm one lucky gal to have bridesmaids like them! We played games, had BBQ (NORTH CAROLINA BBQ), got some wonderful gifts and just had a really great time!
Our Second Shower was a kitchen shower on Sunday afternoon thrown by my mom and Mrs. Surbeck. It was fabulous as well! We did have to squeeze in church and lunch at Jackson's beforehand though! We were so lucky that Justin's Dad, Stepmom, and two sisters could come in for the weekend!
Pictures to come of the weekend!! :) It was fabulous!

Another great weekend and our first wedding shower!

Well, as usual, we had another fantastic weekend!

Friday night, Justin took me to pick up my wedding dress. It was SO pretty and made me EVEN more excited! Then we went to our friend James's engagement party at our friends' Jeff and Gretchen Davis's house. It was fabulous! Good times with friends!

Saturday, my friend Courtney and I went to get manicures and pedicures then layed out by the pool! Saturday afternoon, Justin, Turner and I went to our friend Amanda's graduation cookout! We all had a blast!

Sunday we went to church and Justin led communion for the first time!! He did a GREAT job and I was very proud of him! After church we had our quarterly young adult potluck! After that it was time for our first wedding shower! The ladies at the church threw a wonderful shower and we got so many wonderful things!!

The pictures are from us riding the metro back from the cookout and the wedding shower!
