Our Bright & Warm Trip to Arkansas

Sadly enough, we are back in Virginia. 

Our trip was wonderful. We only had 5 days but we were able to see several of our favorite people! 

We flew into NWA and spent the first day with my sister and her family. John is a big, BIG hit in that family. Harry & Georgia Kelley adore him. 

They tried to wait up for us to get in on Wednesday night but we didn't make it home until midnight. 

I got my Lenny's fix the first day we were there. 

All Girl Photo! Georgia Kelley isn't exactly into taking pictures right now.

Harry looks more like John's relative than mine!

Isn't he gorgeous? He doesn't give me a lot of attention when John is around but he's still very sweet.

Uh! I believe this picture was bribed by, "we will come back on Monday!"

We went with Mom & Dad to Rivertown Barbeque for lunch!

My momma.

My other nephew, Baby Bo. He's soooo sweet.  He's also selective... he allowed me to hold him which was an honor!

My mom,  "Coco" and Caroline & Bo.

John and I went to Searcy to visit friends from college and I got to see my FAVORITE shopping buddy! Kristi and I hit up all the hot spots in Searcy! (ha!) And this wonderful friend GAVE me a bottle of my favorite hairspray by Bedhead. My hair will be super shiny and smell delicious because of her!

John's little sister, Kelly & her boyfriend Jake. We were SO excited to meet Jake! Kelly is very particular when dating so we knew he had to be a great catch... and that he was! We loved spending Saturday evening with them... so much that we didn't get back to Clarksville until LATE! I didn't want to leave!

I love him!

The college John & I met at, Harding, is also known as "The Marriage Factory" - these white swings are ALL over campus and the rumor has it that when you swing with a boy 3 times you get a ring.. "3 Swings & A Ring".  John & I had our first swing Saturday night!

My Mom painted a picture for Dezi of her dog, Izzy.

Dezi, Mom & her painting of Izzy.

I LOVE being with my Dezi!

Elle stopped by on her way back to school. We giggled because we were dressed so similarly!  We did our White Girls in Paris dance!

I love my Elle Belle! <3

While in NWA John & I were able to meet Regan on her lunch break at Qdoba! I am obsessed with her necklace. I am going to steal it if I can.


John & I hadn't seen our wedding venue until Monday! We were so excited. I cried - haha. 

We got to watch Georgie dance! SO sweet.

Every few minutes she would run to where John was sitting - she couldn't stay away from him!

That's pretty much sums up our trip to Arkansas. Only 7 more weeks until I go back!
