Wedding in Ohio

My gentleman & I headed to Ohio to celebrate his friend from grade school getting married. We haven't seen alot of the people that would be attending the wedding since our wedding June 2014, so we were looking forward to catching up with everyone. 
Friday: We caught an early flight to Columbus and arrived at 11:30am.  It was nice we had the whole day to visit my cousin, Shannon and run a few errands before getting ready for the rehearsal dinner at Bravo.

Saturday: Wedding day for Sarah & Greg! It rained a little during the day and right before the ceremony but the sun was shinning as they said their vows and it was the prettiest wedding.  It was held at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Columbus.  The grounds were stunning and we had a fabulous time celebrating such a beautiful couple. 

Sunday: We caught an early flight out and were able to get back to Raleigh by 10am.  It was nice to have the…

Party of 3 in St. Augustine

Annie recently purchased a house in St. Augustine Florida and I was looking forward to spending the weekend with her and Anne-Stuart in sunny FL.  Luckily, it is a quick 7 hours away so we packed up and hit the road Friday to go visit for the weekend.

Friday: We woke up and took our time getting into FL.  We made several stops and didn't get into FL until 3pm.  We stopped at Bold City Brewery in Jacksonville before our final destination.  It was nice to break up the drive since the weather was so nice.  Later we stopped at a The Floridian for dinner which had a huge porch we were able to eat under.

Saturday: We took advantage of the nice weather and was outside all day.  We rented a kayak and went out and explored the area.  We were in the town of Marineland and were sight seeing in the GTM National Estuarine Research Reserve of coastal conservation lands.  We even were able to dolphin watch which was so amazing.  After kayaking we headed to the beach and layed out to continue to so…

Hip Abduction

One of my friends, Annie was in town for one night and we decided to get a group together to go see a band she likes, Hip Abduction.  I have never heard of them prior to her telling me, but I listened to a few of their songs and really liked their music.  We had a great time at their show.

Mother's Day Weekend

Keith & I headed down to SC to visit with his parents.  The weather was nice and warm so we were able to do some fun activities outside.

Friday: We drove down after work, and unfortunately, it rained during most of our travel. We were so happy when we finally got in town and were able to catch up for a few hours.

Saturday: We did chores around the house, to help out Melea then rewarded ourselves by heading to the pool.  The water was so cold, but it felt great to lay out and work on my tan.  We cooked a great steak dinner with salad and fresh corn on the cob.  Later the neighbors came over and we hung out together.

Sunday: We watched Seacoast Church online and then headed back to NC.  My mom was so excited to have us over for dinner and play Mexican Train.  We got mom a Cocktail Tree which is a Lemon & Lime Tree.  I can't wait to see how many lemons and limes the tree produces.

Beyonce Stadium Formation Tour

Anne-Stuart and I have always talked about how amazing it would be to see Beyonce - L-I-V-E!! When tickets went on sale, they were selling fast and within minutes we had to purchase before all the good seats were gone.  Beyonce is doing a stadium tour which means she will play at stadiums across the USA.  I was super pumped because I love outdoor concerts.  However, on the day
of her concert it POURED.  I was so amazed how gracefully she performed in the middle of a thunderstorm.  The concert didn't disappoint rain and all.
