This past weekend we celebrated the engagement of my sister and her honey, Bob. Thursday night we picked the happy couple up from the airport and ended the night with some pizza and good laughs. Friday we ran around town and looked at potential venues for the wedding. It was so much fun being able to spend time with my entire family, and it made it feel real that this wedding is actually happening. The big sha-bang took place on Saturday night at The Ashton (more pictures to come). There were about 100 close family and friends at the party. At one point I remember looking around in amazement at how lucky we are to have so many friends and family that love our family so much! The night was a whirlwind trying to make my rounds to greet all the guests, and of course, introduce Mr. Matt to everyone! It was an amazing night, and it was definitely the kickoff we needed to begin planning this wedding!
Monday was the 3rd Annual – Charlotte Gamecock Alumni Golf Tournament. This tournament was partially my baby and the first big event I helped with since joining the Board of Directors for the Club. The tournament went off without a hitch! It was such a fun afternoon and I was so lucky and thankful to have my Dad, boyfriend, future brother-in-law, and his father participate in the tourney.
The guys tied for 4th place, and I couldn’t have been more proud. Out of 20 teams, this was super impressive. To add the cherry on the top for the weekend, Matt ended up winning the closest to the pin contest and now has amateur sponsorship from Dixon Golf for the next year. We all found it pretty hilarious! So this mean I’m basically dating a professional golfer…right…?
