We decided on the name Olivia Leona Budge.... flows, right? I've loved the name Olivia for years, and Leona is my middle name, as well as a family name, so we decided to put the two together.... I'm kind of IN LOVE with it.
We had her fun time party last night and it was sweeeet! Filled with awesome games that I was too scared to google, but did. Turns out to really make a bachelorette party stand out haha. She's actually going through the temple today... so I may feel kinda bad about some of the raunch of last night haha. But she's amazing and will go through just fine!
Not to mention, she IS the one who caught my bouquet at my wedding. Creepy how that thing is right sometimes. But I am too excited for her to marry her awesome fiance Bryce. Saturday is going to be the biggest party Logan has seen since the HOWL.... Which is a pretty big deal, but this is going to be a billion times better... with a lot more clothing on the guests.
Another reason I love Taylor's wedding is the fact that it gives my parents an added excuse to come up to visit!! My momma and baby brother got to come up last week for my gender reveal and it was WONDERFUL! Every time I get some mom time- it makes my week. NOW I get to have FAMILY time! I'm stoked to have everyone up for the weekend.
Next subject- Chance Whitaker. Aka Tony's Cousin/brother.
If you don't know him, you're missing out. I have never met someone who is such a hoot. He did, however, hate me when I first met him because I was "Taking his Tony away." From then on, we've had this amazing love/hatebutnotreallyhate relationship. Anyway- this kid is going on a mission... like tomorrow. Tony and I were able to go to his "farewell" on Sunday. He did a wonderful job and made me cry, which was a jerk move really because I had to sing right after his talk. Who does that?! And yes, I did a musical number. When was the last time I performed? AT LEAST a couple of years- Not including my days of serenading in order to schmooze on guys, which- single ladies, is an effective way of landing a man. Go learn guitar and sing lots.
Back to the topic. My AMAZINGLY talented husband played a beautiful piano accompaniment along with is other amazingly talented friend Austin on the cello- hot dang it really makes a song absolutely gorgeous! I also got to sing with my lil sis Erin. After sacrament, we were able to have a little get together at the wonderful Budge household (Where my cute momma-in-law got me the CUTEST clothes for Olivia, Thank you!!). It was interesting to see how many ladies showed up. Whenever I walked past Chance, there were at least 5 girls waiting by, watching another hug him saying "Oh Chance, you're the best." Hahahahaha no lie I literally heard this all day. What a lady killer. He's going to be an incredible missionary, and I know Tony is going to go through withdrawals. Thanks for being such a great example!!
Til next time! :)
