Santa Fe

Over President’s Day weekend we loaded up the car with us, Claire, the two dogs, and all our stuff and drove down to Santa Fe to spend the weekend with Drew’s parents.  It was a whirlwind weekend but we had a wonderful time! What is a road trip without food stops? We drove to Taos […]

A Shower for Abbott

Over MLK weekend this year I traveled back to Texas, sans Claire and Drew, to help host a baby shower for my dear friend Laura.  It was so much fun to be a part of and I think the shower turned out just perfect!  We planned on having the shower at one of the hostesses […]

Our 5 Year Anniversary

How can it be that 5 years of wedded bliss (alright, maybe not all bliss) has gone by?  It seems like not that long ago that we got married.  In the ten plus years Drew and I have known each other we have grown and changed so much.  I was thinking the other day about […]

Oktoberfest 2012

Last weekend we ventured up to Breckenridge for Oktoberfest.  We had so much fun last year (recaps here and here) that we just had to go back!  This year was much better weather (if you will remember last year it was FREEZING and sleeting/snowing).  It was 70s and sunny and just plain beautiful this time […]

A Trip to the Mountains

The weekend after my birthday we drove to Florissant, Co (2.5 hours south and west) to visit a good family friend.  She happens to be our friend who adopted Wendy girl!  It was the first time we had seen Wendy and it was so much fun.  She remembered us but also knew where her home […]

On the Road Again

After the 4th, Claire and I drove down to Texas with my parents.  My dad was going down to wrap up some stuff at school so we figured we would tag along.  It was very hard traveling without daddy, it will be a long while before I try it again!!  I was really bad about […]

Phoenix Girls Trip

My girl friend Eugina and I decided to take a quick girls trip to Phoenix last weekend.  We flew in Friday morning and left Sunday morning.  We ate some great food, drank great drinks, lounged by an awesome pool, and just plain relaxed!  I forgot my camera so I only have a few phone pictures […]

North Carolina (Part II)

We made it back to Charlotte in the late afternoon and took Claire over to the neighborhood playground so she could stretch her legs.  She was so good on the way back that she needed a little treat.  We decided to head into the city for dinner and to check out “speed street,” the NASCAR […]

Middleton Place Plantation

Our fourth day in Charleston we went on a plantation tour.  After some googling we found that Middleton Place was the most recommended because of the exquisite gardens.  It really was a great tour.  We did an African American focus tour and I learned so much from our guide.  That was my favorite part of the day. […]

Beach Bums

Our lovely home had the perfect location.  It backed up to the marsh land and across the street was the ocean.  It was about a two minute walk to the shore.  We spent many hours building sand castles, flying kites, shell hunting, swimming, boogie boarding, napping, and picnicking on our area of Folly Beach.  I loved our […]
