A graduate and a Future Dancing With the Stars Pro

We had a weekend filled with all sorts of celebrations! Mr. Gibby was out of town in hot springs for one of his buddies weddings, but I def stayed busy!

Friday night the family and I drove up to Joplin for my little sister’s Nurse Pinning Ceremony! She is officially a nurse. I cant believe she is graduated! I feel so old! haha She has worked so hard and we are all so proud of her! Congrats Nicole. After the ceremony we went and ate at 609. It was super yummy! Here are pics from that night.

Saturday night we all headed back into town for Claire’s dance recital!! Let me tell you, and this is not because I am her aunt, but Claire was sooooo good and def a standout in her class. You have no idea how bad I want to have a little girl now! Rachel, Nicole and I all grew up taking dance classes and we had s0 much fun and to see Claire up there was sooooo awesome. I had to fight back tears, but I think Rachel cried enough for us all : ) Go check out Rachel’s blog for more pics, but here are a few of the Dancing Queen!
she got TONS of flowers and her expression was priceless!

love her

Saturday night AFTER the recital I went and met some of my friends. I was supposed to go to our friend Darrick Bradley’s surprise party, but missed them. I hung out with some girls but made it an early night because i was exhausted. I was even too tired to take pics of us girls! haha
Sunday Sadie and I enjoyed the beautiful weather. It had rained for almost 3 weeks straight! So I went running and then took Sadie for a walk. Later that afternoon I met up with one of my besties for a late lunch and for a cold one : ) Kristy actually has recently lost 45 lbs! She is looking soo good and I am so happy for her! Here are some pics : )

thats one cold beer : )

    Fun, fun, fun… I'm lucy to have had a pretty relaxing weekend – probably due to the bad weather : – )

    I've actually been on a dress shopping mission for me & the Hub's anniversary dinner this Friday, but no luck so far.. Maybe some better finds tonight at Sac's!

    As long as I'm back for the Bachalorette – yea!!!!!
