The Cumming Fair

So, I volunteered through the Junior Service League at the Cumming Fair the other week. Apparently, the Fair needs additional help each year, so it basically pays community volunteers through their organizations to work shifts. My job was to collect tickets for the sky buckets. The only interesting "carny" I saw was a 7.5 month pregnant lady who was smoking. Doh.

A little drive...

On the weekend before last, John and I went on a little drive through North Georgia. We do that sometimes, especially in this nice Fall weather. This the view from a rest area off of the mountain road we were on. John is pretty sure he could see the Atlanta skyline. During our drive we came across a cute antique shop in downtown Jasper.

Johnny's 30th Birthday

On October 2nd, we hosted a "30th birthday /John is starting his own law firm" party for John. We had a great turnout and a lot of fun! We celebrated with good friends, a ton of food, a keg on the back porch, and stacks of John's new business cards here and there.

My mom was my right hand lady in preparing for the party. Cooking is so much easier when there's someone in the kitchen with you! Thanks, Mom.

Here comes the cake!

The dessert table -- missing some items in this photo.

A closer look at the spread...Some of the dips are missing in this photo. Also, not pictured are the meatballs and pigs in a blanket by the punch in the kitchen :)

My mom's decorative touch.

As many of you may know, John basically dislikes cake, except ice cream cake (does this even count?) and carrot cake.
