This past weekend was a busy but oh so fun weekend! Josh and I left on Friday about 3:00 and headed up to TN for the Burfitt Reunion. When we got up on Friday we checked into the hotel and then had a picnic with everyone under a pavilion by the lake. That is where the pretty pictures were taken infront of the gorgeous sunset. I got to meet some of the family that I haven't met yet. It was a fun night of enjoying family. Then we got up the next morning and got some tenderloin biscuits and headed to the golf course to play 12 holes. I was Josh's cheerleader and golfcart driver. It was my first time watching him play! He usually goes with business people, so I don't get asked to tag along. It was a hot one but lots of fun! Then after golf we headed to Josh's aunt and uncle's house to swim and eat a shrimp boil out by the pool. It was a lot of fun just hanging out with family that we don't get to see too often! Thanks to my mother-in-law for the pictures from this event!
We came home Saturday night and headed straight to my oldest brother's 30th birthday party at Pappasito's. That was so fun hanging out with everyone. I feel like we don't all get out like that too often so we really had a great time! We hung out at Josh and Summer's house after dinner. FUN TIMES :)
Then Sunday came...FATHER'S DAY! Happy Father's day to all the father's and father's to be in my life :) We woke up Sunday and Josh and I sat around together and ate breakfast and opened his presents. I just got him some clothes and candy since I couldn't find any gender mutual I LOVE DADDY shirts or bibs. We then headed to my parents house for another SHRIMP BOIL. Haha, it was delicious too though! All of my brothers and sisters were there! We always have a great time together. Josh got some sweet card's...I read them on the way home and teared up. I really can't believe he is about to be a daddy. So exciting but overwhelming at the same time! I am so proud of the man he is and I know that he is going to be a wonderful daddy! :) I can't wait to see it!
After my Mom and Dad's, we headed to the Burfitts. Josh and I picked up some Williamson Brothers bc Earnie wanted ribs for Fathers day. And of course, we were happy with that! There we just spent some one on one time with Mom and Dad Burfitt! It was a lot of fun! Also, while we were there we got some baby furniture. A family was donating some stuff to their church and mentioned that they had a baby crib, changing table, swing and highchair that they were wanting to give to a nice Christian family. So my in-laws said, well my son it about to have a baby! How awesome!! God is so good! We are so thankful, thank you!!
Another update, I got a job :) I am babysitting three days a week for a sweet family of two little girls! I am so excited and I know Josh is too! The littlest girl is a month old and adorable!! It is getting me so excited about having a little one soon!!
This week I am staying busy with VBS at night...I am teaching with Chrissi and this other lady and we are having a blast! Us three have fun together and the kids are too cute! Josh was helping but he left today for Vegas until Saturday! I am ready for him to come home now. I told him he better not come home with a missing tooth or with a tiger :) Hahah, I am a little obsessed with that movie!!
TWO MORE WEEKS until Poppyseed gets a real name :)

Josh and I have a deal where atleast once a week we go out on a date. This gets us away from the distractions of the house (t.v, computer, chores, and so on..) We have done this since we got married and I love it. It works so great for the two of us. It just gives us "us" time and we always have so much fun. This week we decided to change it up and since I know how Josh loves to fish, I figured we could do it together! The plan was to pack a picnic but the chicken sandwiches I made would have been a lot better hot, so we ate at the house. Then headed down to the river. We picked us out a little spot and got our crickets out and fished! It was so much fun. We caught about 8 total..and they were little ones. But it was a lot of fun and a nice and quiet place where we could just talk :)
Also, we got the boat running this weekend :)
We took it out for a couple of hours on Saturday and had a blast. You can't tell from the picture below but Allatoona was PACKED!! I am sure poppyseed had a nice and bumpy ride!

Every year the Gernatt family goes to the beach for a week. This year they decided to change it up and go to the Lake. The house was on Lake Chatuge in Hiawasee, Ga. Most everyone went up on Saturday but I had to come up on Tuesday bc Josh and I were at the beach until Monday.
We had so much fun at the Lake. There was a main house and then four cabins. I stayed in a cabin with my immediate family. Matthew and Ashley brought the boat up so everyone had a blast skiing, wakeboarding, knee boarding, and tubing! And yes, I went tubing. I have had some people tell me that they didn't think that was good for my baby...but I don't really want other peoples opinions. Matthew took it very easy on me when I was tubing. It was basically just a joy ride behind the boat. The lake was so beautiful, surrounded by mountains and so peaceful. I saw one boat out the enitre time we were there! That is so different from Lake Allatoona.
I was really missing my hubby so everyday I would call him and ask him to come up on Friday. He would tell me that he would just have to see... :( After enough begging he couldn't take it anymore. Apparently I am good at ruining surprises bc he was going to surprise me the whole time but since I asked so much, he finally just told me that he was coming up on Friday. So friday night he headed up to the lake and got there about 9. We went down on the dock and fished for a little while with my dad and brother. After not catching much of anything we called it a night. The next day we cleaned up the place and packed and headed to a public site where we could take the boat out and picnic that afternoon. Josh and my brother knee boarded and skiied. It was a lot of fun spending time with family and being in the sun!
After this trip being immediately after my beach trip, I realized that I am a lake and mountain kind of girl! Don't get me wrong, I love the beach but I hate the sand and stickiness that comes with it! Give me a beautiful house with a pool and hot tub, on the lake, with a boat and I will be a happy girl :) Haha, that's not asking too much, is it?! Jk!
Anyways..now on to more lake adventures. Josh and I are headeed to the lake on friday with his family. We will only be there until Saturday night though. But we are excited :) I love vacations, even if they are short!
Here are some pictures from Lake Chatuge...

So I am now 14 weeks pregnant :) Yay for the 2nd trimester! I never once got sick in the 1st trimester. I would get a little nauseous at times but if I ate something I would be fine! I really felt the fatigue though, but not anymore! I feel great and I can't wait for my belly to start really growing!!
My little growing baby bump
SCHOOL AND JOB~
I graduated May 15th...FINALLY :) It only took me 5 years but I am so thrilled to be done! After graduation we had a yummy steak dinner that my lovely parents prepared with my wonderful family! It was so great and I truly felt loved when I saw all of my family there! I am so thankful for all of them and so blessed with a wonderful family!!
Now on to the job part...I have been trying to find a babysitting job for the summer. I had a little phone interview with a lady the other day about babysitting for her two boys. I felt that it went well and really hope it pulls through. It would be great for Josh and I to the extra money before we have the little one! I will keep you updated on it!
