When pondering on what to name my blog.... I thought & thought.... and the color yellow came to me!! A dear friend that has gone to be with the Lord (the color yellow that reminds US of her beautiful and bright smile) gave me the inspiration for the theme . In memory of a wonderful friend.

It has been a WHILE

Hello :) Long time!!!

The Hubby and I have been extremely busy. . . .unfortunately I have had to take a break from the blog world, but I am back!!

Let me start off by saying that God is good and is continuing to work strong in our life! I was recently blessed with a JOB :) I am doing accounting for a company near Fairhope called Summit Industries LLC. I am really enjoying this new venture in my life.... I took several accounting and finance classes in college and enjoyed them, but never did I think in a million years that God would place me working for this great family owned company in my most favorite city in the world :) As I continued to lean on God's word during my job search I found my greatest strength through these words  "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." As he ALWAYS does. . . .  he opened up this door for me to start a new journey. . . .

So I thought that you might enjoy catching up on what THE PITTS have been up to the past couple of weeks!!!!! 

The weekend of May 7th : 
*We celebrated my Grandmother's Birthday
*My 25th birthday
*My great friend from High School (Caroline Carroll Flowers) beautiful wedding
*Mothers Day 

Friday night my mom managed to pull off a surprise party!!! Family, friends & past co-workers came over to our house to celebrate my birthday. We sat out on the back porch listening to music, enjoyed some delicious home chocolate pound cake & catching up! Everyone wanted the latest news on the "newly weds" :)

My great friend Paige had us over on Saturday for a POOL PARTY to celebrate my birthday :) 
(just like old times)

Saturday night we enjoyed a beautiful southern wedding! Caroline and McDavid Flowers :) 
Their wedding was absolutely stunning and a great time! Enjoyed spending time with all my best girl friends!

Jonathan, Meagan, Me & J.Jay

For those of you who know my Mother . . . . you will get a kick out of this :)
As I was enjoying the band with the girls. . . . I assume that my mother saw J.Jay before she left the country club and told him that she wanted to go to Bellingrath Gardens for Mothers Day. . .  that we had better be up and ready to go first thing in the morning. As time rocked on. . .  J. Jay came up to me and said " I have something to tell you" & I was like OK? haha . . .He informed me of Mother's plans and I just knew that he was pulling my leg (nothing new :) So I just laughed and blew it off. . . . about 30 minuets later I asked him again "are you being serious or is this a joke?" J.Jay said "SAM I PROMISE"  . . .  then I knew this had to be true. 
My Mother is such a strong person and loves to do new things. When you mention something that you want to do . . .  she will go over and beyond to make it happen!!! (My Grandmother said that she wanted to go to Bellingrath Gardens and then she changed her mind) . . . . So needless to say waking up at 6:30am on Mother's day . . . . it was no JOKE. . . .  we got up and got our things together and headed south. J.Jay and I took Mom to Bellingrath Gardens for Mothers Day :)
I was so glad that we decided to go because I had never been and it was absolutely beautiful.

I love this picture!!! One of Brittany's favorite flowers(we carried these in her wedding) Seeing this on Mothers Day just made me smile and gave me comfort.

The weekend of May 14th
We went home again to celebrate Natalie & Blake Lane's wedding:)

Natalie & Blake's wedding was a fairytale come true. We enjoyed dancing under tents in her parents beautiful back yard. We had so much fun celebrating with all our friends from Auburn :)

My HUBBY is SO handsome :)

We LOVE y'all. Blair and Tyler:)

My Mom brought her camera and was able to catch the 1st kiss :) 

All of us girls are getting married :) God has truly blessed ALL OF THE "BOYS" :) (my dad always called us the boys when were growing up) with wonderful Men!!! 

Weekend of May 21st
We enjoyed a relaxing weekend in Baldwin County & then on Sunday we went to Brewton (J.Jay's hometown) to meet our new cousin. 

J.Jay's 1st cousin Ryan and his wife Natalie had their first baby.   
Fountain Lee Pitts 

My sister-in-law is suppose to have her baby any day now and I am beyond excited to be an AUNT:) 
I cannot wait for PARKER to get here! We even get to spend the week with him in August for the annual beach trip to Seaside!!!! 

I hope that everyone has a great day!!! I better run. . . . I smell Chocolate Chip Cookies in the oven and the Bachelorette is on TV:)
