Silly Sleepover!

I had't had a slumber party in about 10 years... until last Saturday, that is!

Bron has 5 girl cousins between the ages of 10 and 14.  And we totally had a sleepover at my apartment!  SO FUN!

We made cookies and painted nails!

And fell asleep watching 13 Going On 30!

These girls could not have been more fun!  I think we'll do it again sometime soon!

Anyone else up for a sleepover?!?

Homecoming Made Me Homesick!

People who know me (even a little) generally agree that I am not a sporty girl.  I'm okay with that.  The arts suit me!

But I do enjoy watching the occasional ball game.  I think it helps me be more well-rounded, and I enjoy the excitement competition offers!  I especially love high school sports, where kids, families, and communities are invested because of the kids, their love for the game, and the hopes that they share!

However, it is vital that I point out that there is a difference in football back home and here in UT... more so than with any other sport.

There's nothing like high school football in the South!  It's king!  Everyone goes all out!  There are tailgaters, huge stadiums, packed stands... it's something I think everyone should experience!

This past Friday was Dixie High School's homecoming football game.  Bron's dad is the principal there, and we went to the game!

The cheerleaders had a fundraiser going where they were trying to raise $1000 dollars to attend a competition.  They made a deal that if they raised it by the end of the game, Larry (Bron's dad/their principal) would shave his head!  Well, they got the money for sure!  And Miss Terry (Bron's mama) did the honors!


I had so much fun at their homecoming game, but it really made me miss home... probably because it made me stop and remember the way things were!  It's funny how fast time flies!

Bottom line?

I love Peachtree City!  I love Fayette County!  And, for now at least, I even LOVE football!!

Brooks + Brie = Bergesons

So, last week was all full of "wuv, twu wuv," as Bron's brother, Brooks, got married to his DARLING fiance, Brie!  Lots of food!  Lots of family!  And lots of new names and faces to try to connect!!!  It was great!

The reception was held Thursday night and was a lot of fun!  High five for delicious crepes!

You remember Brooke, right?!?

This is Lauren, Bron's sister-in-law, who is from NC and is a taste of home!  LOVE having another Southern belle around!  It's the best!!!

Friday morning, Brooks and Brie got married here in the St. George temple!  It was a beautiful ceremony, and a beautiful day!  SO happy for them both!

I love this picture of Bron & Brooklyn!

Aren't they a cute couple?!?

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

Lots to update about!  It's been a busy week!  Last Monday was Bron's niece, Ava's, birthday!  She's five!  She and her sister, Brooklyn, came swimming at my house that afternoon!  We played in the splashpad and drank "pink potion" (a mix of pina colada and strawberry daquiri), and had a great time!


That night, we met Bron's family for some more birthday festivities at Fiesta Fun!  Here's some of our adventures:

We opened presents and ate cake!

We raced on obstacle courses (and I won, thanks to a cheating Grandpa)!

We rode go karts!

Can you tell how unexcited I am?!?

LOVE this family and LOVE having little kids around!!

Family, Friends, & Football!

I had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  I went up to Provo for the BYU opening football game vs. Washington.  We won!  And it was a very fun game to watch!

While I was up there, I was able to see a lot of people that I love and do a lot of fun things... Here are some of the highlights!

Friday after school, Brooke, Bron, and I drove up.  We dropped Brooke off and I then introduced Bron to one of the greatest, longest-lasting love affairs of my life... Carrabba's.  Lucky for us both, he also loved it!  I think his words were: "One of the best meals I've ever eaten."  Amen, Bron!  Amen!

Then Bron and I went to see my Haynie girls for a little bit!  Love, love, love, LOVE them!

On Saturday, Bron & I spent the day with his family shopping!  I got to feel a little closer to home by eating some Chick-fil-A in the mall food court!  It was fun!

Then, we changed clothes and headed over to campus for the game!  Bron & I stopped in at the Cougar United tailgate party!  Shout out (again) to my cousin, Kendra who is the PRESIDENT of Cougar United: the BYU Student Fan Association!  She's kind of a big deal!


After the party, Bron & I met up with his family to watch the game!  SO FUN!

Sunday was a fun (and surprisingly fast-paced) day full of visits to family and friends!

Little Miss Moffat!

I took Bron to see Adam's grave!  LOVE the peace I feel there!

We also spent some time with one of my longest-running besties...

"Headow!"

Some of the other people I love and got to see, but who I failed (epically) to get pictures with are: my fake little brother, Ross, my cousin Kendall, and my favorite other-family, Glen, Connie, Cailey, and Cali.

Yesterday, we drove back to St. George and hit up a couple BBQ's... one with my friend, Loralee, and her family, and the other with Bron's family.

It was a perfect break, and really felt longer than just a 3-day weekend!  Awesome!
