Weekend Recap

Hey guys!

It has been a week since I last posted. How rude of me! I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. This past Saturday we hosted a bridal shower for my bff who is getting married on December 2nd. The theme was linens and boy did she rack up. I think she received all of her towels she registered for and all the sheets. It was a one stop shop. I am posting a few pictures of which were taken with her camera. I have gotten SO bad about not taking pictures. I need to kick the habit.

Food table & Mrs. Anne

This weekend I have a wedding to go to for the girl I work with. I know it is going to be fabulous because that is just the way she is. I can't wait to boogy down with some co-workers. Then Sunday my family and I are going to lunch at my Grandmomma's to see my aunt who is in from Arkansas. The whole family will be there so I am very excited.

The next couple weekends are going to be jam packed. I am headed to see the Beau the weekend after next. And then the weekend after that is the bachelorette party for my bff in the pictures up there. Phew! It is going to be a crazy next few weeks.

On top of all of that, it is STILL HOT here in the South. I swear it has been 100% humidity + rain + 80 degrees or higher. Can we say stuffy?! I was running everyday because it did cool off for a little bit, but that came to a screeching halt with all this dang heat.

Anyways, hope y'all have a wonderful week. I am READY for Friday.




I get so frustrated with things/people I just want to give up on it. I just don't get it.

Does this happen to y'all? Like it's not even worth fighting over/getting upset over and would rather rid our lives of it?

Lord, give me the strength to deal with things that I do not understand nor can control.



Sparkling Malbec

Hi everyone! Hope everyone's week is going swimmingly. I am just glad it is Hump day. I have a half day at work on Friday, and I couldn't be more thrilled. Today, Christin over at The Classy Southern Wife blogged about wine. That got me thinking...

On my night out for my birthday with the girls a couple weeks ago, one of the girls tried a Sparkling Malbec. I am not sure the brand, but I haven't forgotten about the taste. It was AWESOME. I am dying to go back and get myself a glass...or three. Have any of you ever had it??


One Nation, Under God

We will never forget those who gave their lives for our own. And let us not forget those who crashed United Flight 93 to keep it from going to the Pentagon or the White house. Always remember.

I consider it an honor and a privilege to say the words of our pledge.
And everyone should take a moment to say it to themselves today.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.
And to the republic for which it stands,
with liberty and justice for all.



Brian GOT THE JOB!!!! Praise the Lord! We are so excited and ready for him to start this new part of his life. He will be moving to the upstate later this month to start with the company. I couldn't be more excited for him.


My new endeavor

Well ladies, I have taken on a new endeavor, and it is quite the endeavor if I do say so myself. No no no. I didn't get a new job. I have taken on running. Yes, running. Why? Well for many reasons: A. To lose some lbs... (college seems to still be hanging around; I graduated almost 2 yrs ago) B. I need to get in shape and C. I want to be able to run a race without stopping. I don't care if it's a 5k or 10k. I want to do it.

Today I started the Couch to 10K app on my iPhone.

I read the reviews and the people just raved. I am giving it a shot for a whopping $2.99. Can't beat that can you? This training app coaches you over a 13 week period. I chose 10K because I want to be able to at least run 6 miles without stopping. I figure that's a good start if I want to run any longer distances. I mean, if I can do this training I've got in front of me then perhaps I'll do the infamous Cooper River Bridge Run this year. Who knows?!

On my first sesh today, it was a combination of running 30 seconds and walking 4 minutes & 30 seconds. I did this for a total of 41 minutes. I think that I went well over 2 miles today. That is the only bad thing about the app. It doesn't tell you your mileage. I'm going to have to calculate it myself I suppose. No biggie. This "trainer" wants you to have a day of rest in between each training session so that your body has a chance to recover. It doesn't seem like it's all that hard but when it's almost 90 out and the humidity is at its highest....GOOD LORD. The bottoms of my feet are sore. I tried to power walk during those intervals. I think that's why they are sore.

Anyways, this is my new endeavor. I am excited about it and anxious to see some results. If y'all have any suggestions on anything, feel free to comment. I could use all the help I can get. :)

Hope y'all had a fabulous Labor Day.
