Hello and Goodbye

This post is to serve two purposes. I want to share some pictures from the past two weekends because both were fantastic, and the other is to say goodbye for awhile. Not long, maybe a month or so, but I need a break. I know you’re thinking, “You’ve barely posted as it is, why do you need a break?” Whether I post or not, I think about this blog every single day. And I feel guilty every single day. I absolutely love to write but lately I’ve posted the bare minimum so I can say, “I’ve posted something this week.” Well that’s crap. For you and for me. I decided this morning that it might be better to take a short hiatus so I don’t have that guilty feeling every day. I’m feeling very out-of-sorts at the moment. My job is in busy season so I'm under a large amount of stress (brought on by myself, of course) and the small part of me that’s not freaking out about work is freaking out about the class reunion in a few weeks. Who knew June (typically one of my favorite months) could be so stressful!? I’m a wee bit down on myself lately and I need to figure out a few things before I completely spiral out of control. The last thing I want is to end up on Jerry Springer with the words, “Meredith Haynes, Crazy Eyes” scrawled across the screen. Sick.

I know all of you have busy schedules and I apologize if you're reading this and thinking, "Get over yourself." Huge props to you for handling everything so gracefully, and please understand how envious I am!

So enjoy these pictures and to the few of you who still read this blog, I will be back (whether you like it or not)!

Bridal Luncheon for Emily's wedding!

Kait and I at the rehearsal dinner

They had us sitting across from our dates instead of next to them. We were a little confused at first but it ended up being a lot of fun! Merd and the two Steves...

Michael has never looked so happy...

:) (Doesn't he look handsome in his vest? And yes, his eyes really are that small.) (Love love!)

Absolutely stunning...

The newlyweds!

Only missing the bride!

TU gang

Brunch the morning after. Congrats Mrs. Korns!

The six of us together again (cue corny music).

And shall I remind you who visited us last weekend?

Evan played in our neighborhood pool (see video below)!

Playing at Kid Country in Coppell

In the jungle (our sideyard)

Uncle "Ike" and Aunt "Mermi"

Watching Beyonce put a ring on it.

When you ask to see Evan's belly, he lifts up his shirt and slaps it with both hands (whilst grinning). Cutest thing ever. Unfortunately, it doesn't work so well when you're wearing a onesie swimsuit (or whatever you call those things)...

That's it for now! See ya later, alligator.

I love the pictures and video you posted! You have to start posting again in July because then I won't see you every day, and I won't get to hear all your stories :(

Everyone needs a break sometimes :) And, I've been to enough events that you've planned to know beyond a doubt that your reunion will be absolutely fabulous! LOVE the new pics of Evan- what a cutie. Btw, you and Em both look teensy tiny in that pic from the brunch!

That is one GORGEOUS wedding party!! Everyone looked amazing! I haven't been able to read your blog from work (the only place I really get on blogger) for several months, but for some reason I could today! Hooray! I totally understand needing a blog vacay. It stresses me out every day because I rarely have time to post anymore. Blogging is supposed to be fun, not stressful! Good luck with your reunion, I'm sure you are doing a fantastic job planning it!

He is so big now! And I'm glad you're resting up for the big reunion. Don't worry, on that night when you ask me where my belly is I'll do the same thing as Evan ;) Can't wait to see you and Michael in just a few weeks!

Also, keep meaning to tell you I looooove your dress at Em's rehearsal dinner and am also a big fan of Michaels glasses. Okay that is all. For now :)

Since you posted this 10 days ago I guess it goes without saying that I absolutely relate and feel for what you're going through. I'm sorry you're feeling so stressed--if it counts for anything you put on a very nice happy face! Hopefully it will allllll be over soon.

Gorgeous pictures. Is everyone you know blonde (minus that hubby of yours)? :P And that Evan is a little doll!!
