Summer Colors

It's the last day of August and I'm a little bit sad.  The mornings are becoming a little darker and the evening air is getting a little cooler...I can sense the summers end but I'm not ready to let go of the brilliant shades of color.

Update on Life in our Bungalow

After a week of technical difficulty I’m back up and running.  It has been a calm storm of activities in our bungalow lately.

My little brother moved to Tallahassee and into the same dorm hall I moved into 9 years ago.  This week he starts his first week of classes at Florida State University.  He completes our family of Seminoles; we all have attended FSU with the exception of my mama (the hokie) and my husband (miss state bulldog).

Our dorm Smith Hall.  I had some great times within those cinder block walls.

This past weekend I made a spur of the moment appearance at an antique store closing on the square and bought a beautiful dresser. (More to come on that later this week.)

My best girlfriend and her new husband were in town this past weekend.
Saturday after a few Mai Tai’s we turned into 15 year olds at the pool and decided we could do flips. Sunday my entire body ached and my shins are covered with bruises.  Mr. told me my legs looked like an 80 year olds.  Definitely a wake up call that I am out of shape and need to work out on a regular basic - starting today!
Sunday we celebrated the Mr.’s birthday and went to Cirque du Soleil Dralion.  It was excellent, highly recommend this show.  Then we had dinner at La Tavola and ate way too much!  The Ricotta Cavatelli & Ragu Alla Napoletana was amazing. It was a great weekend!

After a very busy summer we are refocusing on a few house projects, which I am really excited about…wow I sound really old getting excited about working on our house.

We finally booked our anniversary trip to NYC and I’m super pumped to explore the city that never sleeps with my Mr. The Mr. has never been to the city so I’m really excited for him to experience the amazing sites and eats!  Any and all suggests are welcome.

After a very busy August…it’s back to the grind and I don’t mind.  We have a fabulous fall planned and I know we will have lots to share!

It's a Very Special Day!

 It is Mr.'s Birthday!!

Happy Happy Birthday to the most wonderful Husband around. You are my best friend and I can't image life without you, you are my heart. Happy Birthday.

In his honor I thought I would share a sampling of my favorite Mr. poses from over the years.

I know you hate all the pictures I take constantly but thanks for putting up with me.

I'm Back!

I’m back sorry for the delay but I’ve been on vacay.  5 whole days on a boat with no plans and let me just say it was amazing!  We went to the Grand Cayman and Mexico with whole family.  It was quite a trip.

Sunny Side Up

It’s bright, sunny, hot, and yellow down south right now!  And I only have 4 days of work this week and I will be on VACAY!!  I am so excited.  There isn't a better way to start a short week before a sunny vacay than a few festive yellow hues...

Happy Week!  I had a relaxing weekend!
