Recap of Our Trip to KY

Abby Kate and I traveled to Kentucky a few weeks ago to visit with family and friends. We had a wonderful time and it went by way too fast, just like it always does. We got to see a lot of our loved ones, but still regretted missing quite a few, too. There's simply never enough time to see everyone we want to see!

Abby Kate kept her Mimi and Pawpaw laughing and smiling. We got to spend a lot of quality time with my mom and dad and got to see Brian, Carrie and William a few times, too. Carrie and Brian are expecting a second baby, too! And she's due only eight days after me! We're so excited for them and can't wait to hear if William will have a little brother or sister.

I traveled to Lexington to meet my friends Julane and Debbie for lunch one day, ate dinner with my Mawmaw one of the nights and also got to meet up with my best bud, Lyndsay, for dinner one night. And guess what?! She and Pat are expecting too! And she's due only three days after me! I couldn't be happier for her and we've been talking babies ever since we both found out. Congrats, Lynds and Pat! We can't wait to meet him or her!


My cousin, Kristy, cut and highlighted my hair while I was in town. I was so grateful that she could do it and was thrilled with the job she did. (Thanks, Kristy!) Abby Kate got to play with her cousin Raelin while Kristy worked on my hair. She was in heaven playing dress-up, dancing and singing princess songs. I think she and Raelin have a whole lot in common!


One night near the end of our stay, a bunch of my girlfriends from college came over to spend the night, and the babies got to come to our grown-up slumber party as well. It was so good to see them all. We ate, laughed at the little ones, talked, ate some more, drank plenty of wine (except for me, of course) and enjoyed each other's company.



We had great fun in KY and look forward to going back in a couple months. Hopefully we'll be able to meet up with those of you missed this time.

It was great to have dinner with you and discuss all these babies! I still have a hard time believing that my best bud since I was 4 yrs old & I are having babies 4 days apart....I guess we talked about it so much growing up it came true! Thanks for all your advice and talking through everything..you don't know how much that helps us 1st timers! SO GLAD you are feeling better! Love you....can't wait for the shower!

Glad that you like your hair!! Those pics of AK and Raelin are cute. They had alot of fun singing and dressing up. Maybe Raelin will do AK hair like Holly and I did when you were little....amazing that I am still doing hair at 33. So happy that I got to spend some time with you while you were here. Call me when you are ready for a touch-up next time you are in town. Love you, Kristy
