Two Weeks??

It's been two weeks since I last blogged??  Crazy how two weeks go by so quickly.  I didn't particularly mean to not blog, but it just didn't happen. I typically blog first thing in the morning when I get to work, but work has been absolutely crazy and didn't give me a chance. And then in the evenings, we've either been busy or I've fallen asleep on the couch at 8pm.  Crossfit at 5:30 in the morning can wear a girl out!

Donny has continued to remind me that I'm failing at blogging, so here I am back at it!  It's almost impossible to remember what we've done over the last two weeks to give some sort of recap.  Thankfully, I have my phone pictures to help me!  

We've hung out at the pool quite a bit, including one Saturday that we had almost the whole place to ourselves!  Thanks to some clouds in the morning, almost no one showed up until I was ready to leave around 3:30pm.  Heavenly.
It's been hot as Hades in my office, so I've resorted to thievery to get some relief.  Thankfully, my colleague Al is a good sport and lets me keep his fan for a while.
Donny and I went to a wine festival and had a good time.  I went just because he asked me to, but he was kind of excited about it.  Sadly, they didn't have many options for my dry red wine-loving husband.  But if you want some sweet/fruity/dessert wines, then you'll love the Tanglewood wine festival next year! 
I also got my first Popsugar Must Have box thanks to my incredibly thoughtful friend Katie.  She got it as a half-birthday present for me.  :)  Too bad I've already read the book, but I'm excited to play with all the other stuff!
Speaking of Katie, she and I went to see the Fault in Our Stars movie, and it was SO good!  I'm horrible at remembering details from books, so I'm not the best judge of what was left out.  But from what I remember, it was very true to the book until near the end when they breezed through some parts.  But overall, it was great, and I'd definitely recommend it.
My mom went to the beach last weekend with one of her friends, so Donny and I got to hang out with my dad some, including one night at a minor league baseball game.  Fun times! 
Sadly it was not fun times last week for my grandmother and her husband who suffered some major storm damage.  They lost two huge trees in their backyard, one of which hit the house and put a hole in the roof.  It also, along with another smaller tree, took out their small pickup truck.  (The trampoline in the first picture is from a neighbor's yard...)  Thank you, Lord that no one was hurt and the damage wasn't worse.  The damage to the house was minor, and nothing inside was lost.
This past weekend, Donny planned a date night for us!  We went to my favorite Japanese place, walked around some shops for a while, and then went to play air hockey.  I don't know why he chooses to play air hockey with me.  He know that I'm a master at it...
Saturday, was our friends Heidi and Andrew's wedding!  It was such a great day for them.  The weather was great and everything went smoothly.
Bible fellowship friends!
Me and my hot date!
What a beautiful cake
I laughed so hard at Andrew.  He didn't stand/sit still the ENTIRE reception.  So cute to see him clearly so very happy.  :)
Sunday was Father's Day but it was also the day we celebrated my dad's 60th birthday (which is Tuesday) with the family.  The six of us will hang out with him on his actual birthday, but we had to celebrate at Mamaw's Sunday lunch too!  The cake was from Cold Stone Creamery, and oh wow was it delicious!

We've also started watching The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  Of course, neither of us are up until 11:30pm, so we record it and watch it later.  But oh my word is it hilarious!  Jimmy is just the absolute funniest guy around.  I love it so much.

So, that's what's been going on with me, and I hope to catch up on all of your blogs ASAP!  Hope y'all have a great week!  :)


  1. What a FUN post! I totally agree--I'm so thankful for my phone to help me keep up with what we've been up to. Life goes by so fast! Jealous of the wine festival...I wish I could find one like that around here! I'm sure it's a blast. Is that Emily Giffin book good?? I've been dying to read it but our local bookstore is backordered. Let me know what you think, so I'll know if I should order online :)

  2. Im glad that you're back! So many things to comment on in this post! First and foremost I hope everything gets fixed/better for your grandmother soon--that's so scary! You can send me that book The One and Only if you want! haha Glad you had a good time at the wedding--it looked like a lot of fun! :)

  3. I have the one and only currently to read, hoping to start that soon! So glad to see you floating around blog world again :)

  4. That tree. . . OMG! I can't believe it came down. So glad it didn't do worse damage or hurt anyone. I love Fault In Our Stars. . . book and movie. So good I need to be a teenager again. haha
