Out with old friends!

Last night we made plans to meet up with Josh and Steph.  We booked this almost 2 months in advance to be sure we were definitely on.  Josh was basically my first friend at NC State and he was mostly known as "bro" to me and I was "sis" to him.  You know those friends that you pick right back up with after you don't see for too long?  That's Josh and Steph to me!  Love them.

He and Steph were high school sweethearts!  How presch is that?  They got married 5 years ago and I got a fantastic surprise last night - they are expecting a little girl on October 15th.  We are SO thrilled for them!  I couldn't believe Josh hasn't told me but he wanted to wait until we were in person.  Doesn't she look amazing?  She was such a champ last night in the heat and walking all over downtown Charlotte!

We also got to see some more of our favorite friends - Barrett and Ben!  They are such sweethearts and we love seeing them out and about uptown (they're also uptown residents).  They are great friends with Josh and Steph so it worked that we all got to be together at McCormick and Schmicks.  :)

Mom had requested that Kevin take some engagement photos of me so since I had my hair cut yesterday, I figured it would be a good time.  She requested a black shirt, string of pearls necklace, pearl earrings, decent makeup and spunky hair.  I guess I mostly did that.  Kevin took about 10 photos and this is one.  Yall think it'll be okay for the newspaper?  I guess if she doesn't like it, we'll take more this weekend!
My parents are on their way down from Maryland and my brother and his family are on their way up from Pawleys Island, SC.  I can't wait!!!!  Kevin's parents are throwing us an engagement dinner at their club tonight.  We're SO excited to see everyone and celebrate!
