Flashback Friday

I've been loving seeing everyone's Flashback Friday posts, and couldn't wait until I could start my own. I went a while without having a camera last year, so for many months I didn't have very many pics. I still won't be able to participate every Friday, but you'll see them every now and then from here on out (I wasn't very organized with my pics until recently).

Anyways, this week I'm even kind of cheating. These pictures are actually from last weekend, last year. It was the first time since Trey had left for Basic that I actually went out and did something to really enjoy myself. Steeplechase in Aiken, SC with my SIL and her boyfriends family! It was a perfect day, besides being without my husband. The weather was beautiful, I was starting to lose weight so I felt good about myself for the first time in a long time, and I had so much fun just being silly with SIL. We always have fun when we get together.. especially our pre-pregnancy selves and man do we have some stories!

So here are just two of the pics I picked out from that weekend..
it was still a little chilly in the morning, but the jacket quickly came off and a horrible sunburn shortly followed!

SIL went to Steeplechase again last weekend... I so badly wanted to be there!! A lot changes in a year though. Instead of an slightly irresponsible and a tad bit inebriated weekend, there were baby tents laid out and matching mommy and baby outfits! I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have it any other way... other than myself being there of course :)

I used to always go to the Carolina Cup down in Camden. In fact, the picture on my blog header of Scott and me from behind (him in a palmetto shirt, me in a dress) is from the one year he was home and able to go with me. The Carolina Cup is tomorrow, and I'm slightly jealous of all of my SC friends that are getting to go!

Love your flashback friday!

Ha. I'm probably in the background of one of your pictures. I think I left you a message last year, but I live in Aiken and never miss Steeplechase (until this year). Let me know if you ever come back for one, that would be super fun!
