**Update: COMMENTS POSTED. Sorry it took me so long - life is CRAZY right now. But, that's not the point of this post. The point of this post is to accurately convey to you how AMAZING last weekend was! There really aren't adjectives. Amazing. Incredible. Awesome. All nice adjectives and all... yet, they come up short. There's just something about being with the man I love... at the oceanfront... and seeing Kenny Chesney... that's just amazing, incredible, awesome, all of the above. Here are some snapshots of the amazingness. It was hands down, the best 4-5 days I've had in a while.
This is right after dinner... the first night together in a long time... just enjoying some "us" time outside.
Check out the BEAUTIFUL bracelet Michael surprised me with!
I so thought there were truffles in the box - but this is much better! :)
We got to spend some quality time with Brody, Michael's 2 year old nephew.
He's got some serious moves!
Such a cute age - he'll do anything you tell him!
(side note: why can't boys stay like this forever?)
So cute, right?
He loves his Uncle Mike.
All country-fied for KENNY!
Third year in a row for me, and it just gets better every year!
Kenny Chesney is an AWESOME entertainer.
Even if you're not a fan, go. I promise, you'll enjoy it!
He has a super cool hat, no?
Our hats are pretty sweet, too.
I love that Michael sported the hat. What a champ.
I think it's really cute on him, too!
I secretly took this picture when he was taking in the morning sun...
I so wish we were back there right now.
On the way to lunch with my family...
Gotta love sunny Virginia Beach!
The generation trifecta. I am looking more like my mother every day - guess that's okay :)
(standby for my mom's comments on this one!)
Granny wore that hat and didn't even get free birthday dessert, what is up with that?
Doesn't Michael fit right in?
It was a good match. Exhale.
You know I can't pass a big pink flower and not step all up in the flower bed to take a picture!!
I could write a whole separate blog about these people.
We met Christy & Steven on the bus to the concert and TOTALLY hit it off with them!
This is the next day, after we had Pizza and Dairy Queen with them!
Oceanfront makeout session, check.
Gladly checking that one off my to do list!
:) Wish I was back there... again.
He makes me smile.
Would you LOOK at those eyes?
Seriously, how can you not just stare at them?
After 2 days at the beach, it was back to Durham, NC for Brody's 2nd birthday!
He had a big backyard party and a great time!
Crystal had 3 different kinds of cake!
I'm pretty sure that qualifies her for mother of the year.
Sunday, Michael's brother, Jarred (he's a youth pastor) interviewed Michael in his middle school group.
It's so neat - seeing God use Michael's story, his life experience, to impact young people.
It never gets old to me.
My man is AMAZING.
I am so proud and honored to be his girl.
What a weekend!
Brokaw was not feeling the flash.
It's hard with the paparazzi following you around all the time, you understand...
