My Weekend [Instagram Dump]

How does Monday roll around so quickly? And I don’t even want to think about how it’s May already… My weekend officially started on Friday. I left work early to take my boss out for her birthday lunch, and then scooted out to attempt a little bit of thrifting. I didn’t find much, but I […]

A leetle gardeeen

I joined Weight Watchers online as a last ditch effort to not weigh 400 lbs by this Christmas. Does anyone else use WW? What are your thoughts? It’s been three days and so far all I can think about is how badly I want to order a large pizza and eat the whole thing by […]

Weekending in NC – Sunday

The day following April’s birthday festivites, we had breakfast at Mike’s Grandma’s. After sufficiently stuffing ourselves with scrambled eggs, cheesy grits, and bacon, we wandered down to the creek on her property. It was a great weekend!

Weekending in NC – Saturday

First of all, HOLLA to my gurl Katherine – it’s her 23rd birthday! If you feel so inclined, stop by her Facebook page and tell her your cats sent you. So even though Friday was my birthday, we spent the weekend celebrating April’s birthday. That’s how selfless I am. April is Mike’s cousin. We like […]

A Year Ago Today…

A year ago today, Mike surprised me at my internship, cookie cake in hand, and popped the question. Naturally I was more excited about the cookie cake. LAWL JK. Kind of. (He also had a bouquet of flowers and gorgeous diamond, obvi). I hiked 3 miles up a mountain before I figured out what was […]

Aiken Kite Festival

On Saturday, Mike and I actually got out of our pajamas and went to the Kite Festival. I wanted to try to get some colorful pictures, but couldn’t really find the shot I’d been looking for. We took Ginger and Bella and they had a great time sniffing their little hearts out.

A Few Good Cakes

In the wake of our epic grooms cake failure, our wedding day baker was a huge success and I could not be more grateful to our wedding planners for recommending her. Not only did she make me a beautiful wedding cake and a great grooms cake for Mike the day of the wedding, she also made favors […]

A Grooms Cake Disaster

So, one of the few things Mike actually requested for the wedding was a very specific groom’s cake. I conceded, and actually liked the one he chose. It was funny and definitely suited his personality. The bakery we initially chose to create it ended up not being a viable option due to their location and […]

Happy Easter!

This was a great weekend! Friday we grilled out over at Shonn and Gena’s, then played some back yard volleyball. Saturday we gave Ginger a bath and bought her a name tag for her collar. Then we went back to Shonn and Gena’s, ordered pizza, and played more back yard volleyball. Sunday morning, we went […]

Ginger

On Monday, Ginger came to live with us. She’s a 12 year old Bloodhound that used to track for the Sheriff’s office. She’s too old to do police work now, so she’s officially retired. She stayed with another one of the special ops guys for a while, but things didn’t work out so Mike volunteered […]
