Surprise & A Busy Weekend

Surprise Visit!
The last time Kevin visited, we'd decided he would come for a visit this weekend, that would mean 3 weeks between seeing each other, but we were willing to do it. Well this past week brought lots of rain and storms, so on Thursday night Kevin decided it would be best to not make the 10-hour drive in the bad weather. All day Friday I was pretty upset by this since I'd been looking forward to his visit pretty much since the last time he left, but I'd rather him be safe than trying to drive in the thunderstorms. Kevin called me when he was "on his way home from work" and I cried and was really dramatic about how sad I was because I wasn't seeing him. Little did I know - - after my second (and more pleasant, I'll talk about that later) visit to David's Bridal, this time in Mobile - - that at 10:30 Friday night he'd surprise me by calling and saying he was in Grenada, Mississippi, 5 hours away! I was so excited that I didn't even mind staying up until 3 talking on the phone to keep him awake until he arrived safely!

Cake Tasting
I'd arranged for Kevin, my mom, and me to go to Sweet Stuff in Biloxi for a cake tasting Saturday morning. Truth be told, I bet THAT'S what helped him decide to drive through the rain for a visit. :) Anyway, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. We haven't made a decision yet, though, I still want to go to Le Bakery and ask a few individuals I know.

The samples. YUM. Totally worth blowing myself out of ketosis.

Groom impatient that I made him pose before he could eat.

I liked the rough iced look, plus thought the topper was cute on this one!
Buzz Lightyear Gift Registry
My sweet groom was way more excited about creating a gift registry than I'd expected. He practically begged me to agree to go to Dillard's to get one started. Needless to say, we are finding out how different our tastes are when it comes to china sets and eating utensils. We definitely agree on things like towels and bedding, though. And I will win with Keurig battle (he says I don't need one). We had an awesome salesperson at the Dillard's in Biloxi, Anthony, he said "cool beans" at least a dozen times and told us that the fact that we were super chill when the batteries of our scanner went out tells him that we "are gonna stick." We didn't get a whole lot accomplished, but we definitely had fun. Again, I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
Readying my aim.
Showing off how the LARGE towels Kevin wants.
Our short weekend together (less than 36 hours) was rounded out by going to the wedding of a friend of mine from high school and an engagement party for a couple that started dating at the same time as us. Weddings are everywhere right now! I really love, love, y'all!
