I am a true southern girl who grew up in Tennessee but now live in Ohio. I am married to my best friend Matt. I am a mom to two beautiful and sweet boys, Ryan (born June 2009) and Colton (born June 2011). We have two adorable doxies named Annabelle and Gracie. I enjoy baking and decorating cookies and cakes. I love Jesus, sweet tea, Tennessee Football, SEC football, date nights, working out, my amazing church and spending time with my family.
2 more days til we leave for SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA! We will be there for a week visiting! I am sooo excited and can't wait! I have never been to California before so it will be a great and awesome trip!
Saturday Matt and I participated in Loveland's Amazing Race! It's a race based on the reality tv show The Amazing Race. I LOVE the show and I am a huge fan. Unfortunately, the race was alot harder than I thought it was going to be however we still had fun! We didn't start until 12:30 so it was already super hot outside and we only had about 4 teams behind us so we didn't have much competition. There were 20 events that we either biked or ran (mostly walked) to. It was alot more running involved than I had inticipated! You know on the show they don't run that much, it's mostly just sprints to the finish line but the other time is driving and doing the detours and road blocks! I was proud that we only got upset with each other once, when we were trying to canoe. Let's just say Matt and I will not be going canoeing anytime soon! Our time was 2 hrs, 44 min. which I felt was not that bad! We weren't the slowest team but not the fastest either! It was fun but I am totally exhausted and sore from it all! Saturday night we decided it was a much needed hot tub night so we went out to Matt's Uncle's house and soaked in the hot tub for a little while! It actually helped us feel better! Maybe we will have to invest in our own one of these days!
Sunday we tried to take Matt's Grandpa to breakfast but since he suffers from Dimentia it was to no avail. My heart breaks for him and I think the change in his usual routine was too much for him! We had dinner at my in-laws house which was very nice. My mother-in-law is an awesome cook. She needs to give me lessons , I'm not a good cook! It was a nice evening and good fellowship.
We leave for vacation next week and can't wait! Our vacation is in celebration of our 1 year wedding anniversary! WOOHOO! We are sooo excited and looking forward to having time off work and just getting away and relaxing! We will miss our little baby doxies of course, but they will be in good hands and get lots of lovin!
Wow! What an amazing weekend we had! My parents drove up from Memphis to visit for the weekend! Amazingly enough they left early on Friday morning about 6:30! Unfortunately even though they got a head start they ran into some trouble on I-71. They were detoured off the interstate and sat in traffic for 2 hours! They ended up having to meet up in Williamsburg at Matt's Uncle Steve's house. (Matt and I were participating in his wedding this weekend and we had to be at the rehearsal dinner at 6pm) Finally we met up with the fam and went to the church to start the rehearsal. Steve's fiance' Teresa (now his new wife, woohoo) had alot of family in town that we got to mingle with. We ate chicken, pork chops, fruit, tea cookies and cake, yummy!!! Then we played some cornhole! It was a great time had by all! I think my family really enjoyed being out there and meeting new folks. After we got home Friday night of course we stayed up way too late gabby and catching up! And of course playing with the pups! Annabelle and Gracie just loooove my family!!!
Saturday started early with going to breakfast at Mimi's Cafe'! We were tired of course but enjoyed the yummy food and fellowship! After we ate breakfast Mom and I had to head out to 'burg and get my hair done for the wedding! We hung around Steve's until it was time the take pics. The photographer was late and so we got started taking pics about 2:30....they lasted til 5:30, just 30 min. before the wedding was to begin. He was cutting it a little too close! I'm hoping that Matt and I got some good pics out of it too! I will post some tonight! The wedding was beautiful and just right! The reception was a blast! I think I had more fun than I thought I would! The food was awesome! We mingled with many guests that Matt basically new from practically growing up in 'burg. Plus I got to meet and see some people that traveled down for our wedding last year! My parents enjoyed it and were so happy for Steve and Teresa! We danced, ate too much cake and just partied the night away! We finally made it home about 12:00 or so and we were beat! We all pretty much crashed!
Sunday I got up about 10 to fix breakfast! Kris my mother-in-law came over and we all went to Homarama! It's a home show here is Cinci with multi-million dollar homes! These homes were truely amazing, jaw dropping... almost over the top! It was alot of fun but very, very exhausting! We were soooooo tired when we got home about 5:30 Sunday afternoon! We ate at Montgomery Inn last night for dinner, which is always a treat and very scrumptious!
My parents left this morning and are heading back to Memphis! I think they had a great weekend, just a little exhausted and very tired! Matt and I will hopefully recoop this week and I'm sure we will be ready for the weekend to get here! I think this was one of the best weekends we've had in a long time! It was truely a wonderful weekend had by all!
