Fall Cleaning, Surviving Irma & a Hurricane Slumber Party!

In my last blog, I mentioned that we were doing Fall Cleaning this weekend, and I wasn’t kidding! We spent almost the entire day cleaning and getting things ready for the change of seasons. I washed and ironed (whut) all the curtains in our house, cleaned the oven, dusted all the fans and light fixtures,…

Nothing Goes Faster Than a Vacation…

I realize I just shared a post about our cruise, so I know it seems redundant to share our vacation so soon… But it was a quick weekend getaway, and we probably won’t go on another one for a while, so you’ll just have to get over it : ) I’m so grateful for mini-vacations…

Graduation Trip Day 4: Road Trip Home

Sunday morning, we slept as late as we could. I was exhausted, so when I heard check out time was at 11:00, my heart rejoiced.    We headed back to campus to take a few pictures of me in my cap and gown… It felt so good outside, but the wind was CRAZY. My hair…

A Lot of Laying Around: The Perfect Weekend

I enjoyed every second of my Christmas break, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to seeing my co-workers/friends and my babies again! Maybe it’s because I’m a first year employee, or maybe it’s because I’m a little crazy, but I was excited to go back to work… It was…

Getting to Christmas …

Christmas in the City The Saturday before Christmas, me and B had tickets to see JohnnySwim in concert in Atlanta. Before the show, my mom and I met my sister, Michelle, for lunch and to hang out. We went to one of my favorite spots El Taco. I have only eaten here one time before,…

Framping (Friends + Camping)

This past weekend we went camping with our friends. It was such a fun weekend, but Lord, have mercy: It was C O L D. The temperature dipped to right above freezing Friday night. It felt good right next to the fire, and in my sleeping bag, but that was about it. The wind, man….

Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Happy Halloween, y’all! Today, I decided I wanted to make something festive for breakfast. I have had these in my refrigerator since the beginning of the month, and I just haven’t had time to make them! But, rather than cook them the old-fashioned way, I decided to try something different! I used the waffle iron…

Camping in the Smokies: Tuesday

People are always shocked when I tell them I have never been camping before… I grew up as one of three girls and neither of my parents are really “outdoorsy”, so it really shouldn’t be that surprising! But, now I can’t say that anymore. We went camping– in a tent– for 3 days in North…

Early Mornings & Long Days

5:30 came early this morning. Our church hosted an Appreciation Breakfast for First Responders in our community, and it started at 6:30AM. It was definitely worth waking up, but I’m so glad I don’t have to do that every day!        There was a patriotic theme, so of course I had to wear…

Random Saturday: Fixing Ginnie’s Car & a Late Breakfast

Saturday morning, we tried to sleep late, but ended up getting up around 8:30. It was just as well because Ginnie (my grandmother) was having car trouble the night before and B was in charge of fixing it! We got dressed and headed over to her house, and then took the car to Auto Zone….
