Celebrating Love and Friendship

Grant and I celebrated four years of marriage this past Thursday and had a very nice dinner at Flemmings. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. They even handed us a box of their homemade chocolate truffles at the end of the meal for a gift and they were delicious! It's hard to believe it has been four years. This picture is from our honeymoon and has always been a favorite of mine. Thanks for four great years, sweet husband. Here's to many more!

The day after our anniversary, I headed to Heber Springs (again!) for a different, and much needed celebration with friends. We have been trying to plan a small trip for more than 5 years now and thanks to Bubba and Debbie Edwards, this trip was quite inexpensive! Me, along with 4 of my lifelong friends from high school/college spent a relaxing weekend at the lake in a beautiful mansion!

Back of the house... simply gorgeous!

We threw Emily a small surprise shower on Saturday (yes, in our swimsuit attire!) and topped it off with Muddy's cupcakes. There's nothing like those sweet buttercream treats!

We even spent a little time with sweet Nora

And a lot of time on the boat!

We had the choice of our own room, but chose the "bunk room" instead. And why not, right? Who doesn't love reverting back to the slumber party years where laughter is uncontrollable, secrets are told and random games like "Name as many people as you can from our graduating class of 2000" are played (I'll have you know, we made it to 88/98 people before peeking at the annual!)

Emily's house in Bald Knob (short Eryn :) who returned to Memphis early). The weekend just wasn't long enough!

And now, off to the lake again tomorrow!


  1. How fun! I can't wait to visit the Edwards' lake house myself!

  2. Man, that house is beautiful! So glad you had some fun times with old friends--those are the best!

  3. Congrats on 4 years, Mandi! Your pics are adorable!
