Table Rock Lake Family Trip

Every year the Wilson's invite the family to spend a long weekend at their lake house in Table Rock Lake, MO.  We aren't always able to join but this year we were and super excited to spend time with the family.  We found good flight prices by flying into Tulsa to visit with Derek and Kristie and then make the 3 hour drive to Springfield before heading to the lake.

Tuesday: We worked and caught a flight at 7:30pm to Tulsa, OK.  Derek picked us up from the airport and we stayed at his house.  Keith and Derek caught up while I went straight to bed since it was midnight and way past my bed time.

Wednesday: We hung out until lunch and then headed to Springfield, MO.  We were able to attend a Springfield Cardinals baseball game and had a blast.  The cardinals won and we cheered them on from box seats which was awesome.

Thursday:  We had a pool party day and hung out with everyone at the Wilson's house.  The weather was HOT so hanging out in the pool was perfect.

Friday: We all head…

Sisak's Visit from OHIO

The Sisak's drove the 9 hour drive from Sandusky, OH to Raleigh, NC to visit.  We had a great time and so glad the weather turned out great for us to enjoy Falls Lake on Saturday.

Friday: They arrived a little before 5pm and we hung out and cooked dinner before heading to Lynnwood Grill for a few drinks.  David, Jess, Marianne and Robert met us out so they had a chance to meet them.

Saturday: We all headed to Falls Lake to have fun on the boat and rafts! We spent all day outside on the water and it was great! The water was surprisingly warm, so I was in the water all day.  Later, Keith cooked us dinner and Christina and I decided to stay in while the boys went out for a few drinks.

Sunday: The Sisak's had to drive back and we took the dogs to puppy camp - aka Grandpa's house so we can head to Table Rock Lake, MO.

Beach, Please!

My gentleman and I had the opportunity to spend a short weekend down in North Myrtle Beach with his buddy Landon, and the weather looked nice, so we said - Beach, Please!

Friday: We drove down Friday after work and went out to a bar where the local's go called Duck's Beach Club.  We stayed outside in the rocking chairs the entire night and I loved all the people watching.

Saturday: I woke up early to get in my shopping at the near by outlets, so I could get some Kate Spade goodies.  I got back before the boys were even awake - SCORE.  We headed to the beach around 11am and stayed till 6pm.  Although, I did re-apply sunscreen I still managed to get a little crispy.  Later, we headed to Filet's on the Water for a bite to eat and then I went home but the boy's stayed out.

Sunday: We woke up early so we could have the whole day at home to do chores and relax.

Happy Birthday America!

The fourth of July this year fell on a Tuesday, and since I only got the day off, I decided to also take off Monday and have a fun staycation with my husband. Our weekend consisted of going on the boat to Falls Lake, hanging at the pool, cook-outs, fireworks and hanging out with friends and family.

Savannah, GA

Savannah is only 5 hours from Raleigh, which isn't a bad car ride, but little did I know the weather is completely different.  Savannah is way more humid than Raleigh, and I was hot the entire weekend. We went down Thursday and stopped at Florence, SC for lunch then finished the rest of the trip down to Savannah, GA.

We went to a bunch of cool bars and restaurants and stayed at a central place so we could walk everywhere.  Some of my favorite places we went to:

Sorry Charlie's  B. Matthew's Eatery Boomy's Bar Savannah River House Rail Pub Moon River Brewing Company Alley Cat Sweet Melissa's Pizza

Happy Anniversary - 2 years!

Well the saying "time flies when you are having fun" is so appropriate.  I can't believe we have been married for two years already.  I love how we know each other so well and can predict what the other is thinking.  For our anniversary we had dinner at Cameron Bar and Grill which is actually the place we went for dinner to celebrate our engagement.  
The weather was cooperating while at dinner so we sat outside the covered patio and enjoyed each other's company.  After dinner, we decided to head to North Hills for drinks at Level 7 which is a new rooftop bar.  We had a great time and I am so lucky to call him my husband! 

Happy Father's Day

This weekend was tough, as this was the first Father's Day without Keith Sr. We spent the weekend in SC helping Melea pack up as next time we see her she will be living in NC and we are so happy! This next chapter will be different but good to have her so close by.

Hamilton slept the entire car ride home - probably because he played so hard with Charlee.

Father's Day, Jamie and I headed to Wendell to hang out with dad.  We brought over LoneStar Steakhouse for dinner and played Skip Bo.  It was fun to review old photo albums and hang out.
