2 Rounds down...

Hello blog friends! Thanks for stopping by.

2 rounds of tailgating and hollering for the Hogs are down and we are up 2-0. Here are a few pictures of the first games! I couldn't help but laugh and snag a picture of my favorite football fans making sure the truck was ready to head to the pit in Fayetteville.

Game 1: Walk thru

Visited with friends!
Hogs beat Missouri State.

Then this weekend, the Razorbacks played in the rock! Chelsea & Seth had a tailgate and it was so much fun! Here are the girls!
And since the game was on 9/10 Arkansas paid tribute to the 9/11 victims and their families in honoring and remembering the 10th Anniversary of 9.11.01.
This picture gives me chills. Loved being a part of the 'red' section!

Hogs won! This weekend, it's time to skip the football game and head with the girls to celebrate Natalie's Bachelorette Party in Branson! Can not wait to hang out with all my friends and celebrate with the Bride-to-be!!!

I'm back in the great state of Arkansas and ready for Labor Day weekend....
desperately have some updating on the blog to do. Luckily it's Friday and I have been taking pictures only via my iPhone = Perfect post for Insta-Friday!

Since my last post,

I got to tag along with Beth, a Young Designs' bride {gettin' hitched next weekend to be exact!}, to her bridal portraits at Alda's Magnolia Hill. It was such a wonderful evening at one of central Arkansas's premiere outdoor venues! It definitely got me excited about the upcoming Fall wedding season!

On the 19th, I headed across to Memphis, TN for Southern Bride Magazine's Summer Soiree for vendors. It was so much fun and I got to meet my blog friend Lindsey who works for S.B.M. Loved finally meeting her in person! {stole this pic from her blog too, thx ha!} Here was the set-up at Clark Towers. Gorgeous beach theme!
Living back in my hometown has it perks, especially that I am so close to cheer on my cousin at her high school volleyball games! It's her first year to play varsity and I am so proud of her! {She's in the middle of the picture.}
In between Memphis and Volleyball games at good ole' CAC, I made a quick trip to Heber Springs to help Meemaw learn how to email, make word documents, print, etc. on her computer. She is so good. I was very proud of her! I was also very proud of my fellow Kappa's and the job they did on recruitment this year! This year the seniors, were the freshmen when I was in charge of Homecoming my senior year. They were so helpful during that time and I got to know them extremely well. I loved being able to go back as an alumni and help these girls some!

The Sweet KKG house on Maple St.
After Fayetteville, I was off to Minneapolis, Minnesota for a work trip. Timing is everything in the event industry and jobs can happen overnight {which I love.} I had a meeting one week, 4 days later they had put me on a job, and I would fly out in 2 days for another with them. LOVE that I didn't have a wedding this past weekend and was available for the job in MN. I am getting into some more contract labor for events this upcoming year with them, still doing weddings in Arkansas- no worries, but I am excited to add this new addition to my portfolio. Not to mention see/tour some great cities. Hey it might make my blog more interesting to :0)
Downtown Minneapolis was gorgeous and so neat!
Ate at the famous Manny's Steaks with the team I was working with.
Friday afternoon toured around Mall of America and had this amazing snack.
Banana carmel crepe- delish!
I got to work at the veteran's job fair with the US Chamber of Commerce on Saturday.
Then 3 of us headed to the State Fair to celebrate a job well done! It was so much fun and I had a blast 'working.' I have definitely found my calling with events and have discovered it doesn't matter which kind- it is the process of execution and helping others that pays off.
In other news and after spending 6/8 nights not in my bed, home is...

Where the red door is...
{Complements of Momma Mona! Yes, it makes my heart happy and Dad wants to paint a hog on it- I'm thinking a Hog wreath will do. Kickoff for the pigs= less than 24 hours!}
