41st Cooper River Bridge Run 10K

I have completed the Cooper River Bridge Run for the past several years with my mom and then last year and this year, Keith ran it with us!  It is always hard to train for an April race as it is not warm leading up to April.

Friday: Keith and I got off early and headed to Charleston.  We ate at Mellow Mushroom and checked into our hotel.  We ended up staying in Summerville, SC which was about 30 minutes away from all the places we went over the weekend.

Saturday: RACE DAY! We met up with my mom and John so it would be easier to get dropped off close to the start of the race.  We lucked up with weather because it could have been colder but it was nice day for a run. After the race, we were all sore and struggling so we went to Burton's Bar & Grill for a bite to eat.  They had a yummy she crab soup!  Later for dinner, we usually head to Shem's Creek and tried Red's Ice House and it was good!

Sunday: We headed to Seacoast in Mount Pleasant before heading back home to watch t…

Easter Weekend

Keith and I hosted Easter again and everyone was invited!

Friday: Keith didn't have to work, so he purchased all the groceries and went to Honey Baked Ham to get the Easter ham. Since, I had to work and I knew I would get off a couple hours early, we decided to meet up at Lynwood Grill for a few drinks and appetizers.  Later, we headed to Belk for a quick trip and take advantage for the sale.  Keith got 3 new sports coats for price of 1.  He is excited.

Saturday: We decided it would be easier to have Easter dinner on Saturday since Keith and I both had to work on Monday.  Everyone came including my dad, mom, step-dad, mother in law, sister and future brother in law.  We had a great time and after dinner we watched the NCAA games. After everyone left, the kids decided to go to Lynwood Grill for a few drinks to un-wind without the adults and catch up. 

Sunday: We went to the 11am church service followed by brunch at The Point.  It was a gorgeous day and glad we could spend time as a fa…

Jamie's Bridal Shower

A couple weekends ago we threw the Bride To Be a Bridal Shower at my mom's house.  We had food, wine and a lot of fun!

I wanted to do something to make Jamie feel special, so I created a wreath advent calendar.  The wreath includes 12 small boxes that have a clue of what she gets to open that day.  She loved it so I will call it a win! She gets to start opening 12 days before the wedding. 

Hamilton Turns 2!

Hamilton's birthday is March 28 and he is officially a two year old dog (24 or 14 in human years) and we couldn't be more excited.  We always try to make him feel special and get him a few new treats and toys.

I found the cutest present that I knew I wanted to save for him for his birthday, which was a birthday cake toy with candle.  He absolutely loved it!

Celia P. Snow

Celia, age 94, of Lansing, Michigan, passed away March 19, 2018. She was born May 1, 1923, in Cleveland, Ohio, to Robert and Sarah, “Sadie” Pollard. Brother Bill arrived five years later which delighted Celia. Together they had many adventures growing up and remained close for their remaining years. Celia graduated from Ferndale High School and attended Mary Washington College in Virginia. In the summer of 1939, at age 16, Celia met Conley Snow in Bristol, Tennessee. Celia stated she thought Conley was the most exciting man she ever met and she felt that way for the rest of her life. His smile made her heart go “pitty-pat.” Celia and Conley were married on October 7, 1943 during World War II. They had 71 years of a blissful marriage. Married life included being the wife of an aviator pilot during the war and becoming a homemaker and raising three children. Celia was happy being at home and being a mom, but she always had an adventurous spirit. When Conley retired they moved to Colorado…

Splurge vs Save

I have learned from an early age to save my money, but we are all guilty of finding those MUST HAVE SHOES and can't say no.  Well, sadly this happens more times than not but I do enjoy finding items that look identical to the designer but cost much less.

A have listed a few splurge vs saves below.  I have purchased the saves and I just love them!

My sweet, sweet grandma

My sweet grandma Snow passed away early Monday morning, March 19. She had fallen 6 times in the last few weeks and became very week.  On Sunday, Aunt Bev arranged for everyone to call and talk to her as we had a sense the end was near.  I will forever hold the great memories we have dear to my heart.  I am grateful she is now looking down at me holding hands with her dream man - grandpa!
