Just a little bit of guns & dresses

Betty's got a gun (among other things)

And so do her friends.  The title of this blog includes guns & dresses and we have been slacking on the weaponry side of things.  This post is actually going to touch on both sides of the spectrum.  Plus I have big news.  So here we go.

Friday I worked.  Then I campaigned.  Then I got super excited because I was going to go put the boat in for a lil afternoon trip because the weather was straight beautiful.  Well as soon as I got out of the car at the landing, the wind bout carried me to Summerville.  So I had to nix the boating expedition.  However it turned out to be a good afternoon because I got to go play with some of my all time favorite kids.  Then I got my you-know-what handed to me at some dance game on the wii.  Yes.  I got whooped by a mom (she shall remain nameless).  No comment.  Then I went to the Wagner's house to see Katie and her small army of friends that she brought home for spring break. Then to the Stouts to visit Logan.  Here ends Friday night:)

Saturday morning was splendid.  I did what I love to do.  Shoot guns.  That's right.  Mercury and I headed to Huger to meet Biz and her peeps to shoot skeet.  We got to shoot at the Payne's.  They rock.  Seriously.  They are living the dream.  Well maybe just my dream.  They live in the country, but not too far from the city, they can shoot guns in the front yard, 4 wheeler trails everywhere and there is a pond. So I was nervous the whole way out because I haven't shot in a while and there were going to be boys out there than shoot a lot.  And I didn't want to look like an amateur.  Plus I had to represent well to Merc...Well, it turned out pretty good for me and it turns out that it's just like riding a bike.  Kind of.  I think I still got it.  Only missed a few.  Us girls did pretty well out there if I do say so myself.  Here are a few of my favorite shots of the day:
Coolest baby momma I know
That's Biz taking em down

Favorite shot of the day:) Pretty awesome if you ask me
Mercury shooting em up

Work it....
Totally normal....

Not going to lie, shooting did this lil soul good.  Then I went to a Kitchen & recipe shower for Camille.  Got to love recipes.  The ol girls were back together again.  I would just like to state that when I graduated high school everyone told me I would not still have my high school friends.  Well we are still going strong.  Run & Tell that!  Want to see?

Then I had to book it to a wedding downtown with some old friends who just happen to be some of my favorite people ever.  I also blew my Lent goals.  Time to rethink on that one.  Don't judge, just being honest here.  I also accidentally gave up the meaning of the Magic Number to one lucky friend...She was lucky...It won't happen again.

Here is the big news.  If you made it this far down then you are are a trooper.  Logan/D-Lo/Logs, one of my all time best and greatest friends has been taken.  True story.  Sorry boys.  I know I always act all sad when my friends get engaged, but it's not out of meanness.  It's because I am not a huge fan of change.  That's all.  But I can honestly tell you that I am 100% excited for Logan.  And I am also 100% emotional about this engagement.  I'm still waiting on a big cry (happy/emotional/much needed).  It must be delayed.  She truly is one of my favorite people.  I also discovered that I just may be just a little bit prophetic (we are talking like 1-2%), because I walked out of church knowing that she was engaged.  I kid you not.  She texted me during church ( Can I please also add that I got to write a short story with the above mentioned awesome kids during church + it was super fun) that she had a question for me before heading back to Greenville.  Then I got this ick feeling (in a good way).  I have come to experience this feeling several times over the past year so I am somewhat of an expert in this department.  I told two people on my way over to Creekside that I predicted an engagement, but they said no one gets engaged in the morning time...well they were wrong.  Logan had herself a good looking rock on that little finger.  I'm feeling pretty good about these engagement prediction skills if I do say so myself.  Here is the blushing bride to be:
She's all grown up now.  So there's my weekend in a nutshell.  A rather large nutshell.  Sorry if this bored you to death, but I do what I want.  Kind of.... Here's to a splendid week for you!

Out with a bang,
Sass and Betty (one in the same if you weren't quite sure)


  1. We had so much fun on Saturday. You should have told everyone how you were on fire! I don't think you missed a single one. Betty and her guns are welcome anytime!

  2. W.T.F.?!?!?!?! Mandy got to find out what the magic number is?

  3. I'm glad to be that lucky friend. I'm a lock box. Don't worry. I haven't even told Adam. PS you neffy shot a gun in a are my hero. And...I'm coming to your ladies weekend. I hope y'all didn't forget you invited me. I didn't!
