Thought I would make up for lost time and do a quick update of our January and Feb. happenings so that I can catch up on this whole blog thing. I am really going to try and do a better job at keeping it up this year. So here is the past few months in a few words
January: Mom's birthday hosted at our house (it was the 1st thing that we had "hosted" at the new house so it was a definitely a new experience for us). Heres a pic of me and my sweet momma, oh and of course lexie lou!
I also had time to do some much needed decorating in our house! We put a bookcase in our living room and I attained some super cool pieces for our mantle from a local antique shop :) Antiquing makes me very happy. We also experienced a bit of a snow/ice strom here in Augusta, GA. I have to admit it was exciting at the thought of it, but I was so over it due to the fact that I was working nights that week, and of course I was stuck at work due to the ice that had accumulated. The hospital had a "code green" in effect meaning no employees could leave until there was an all clear due to staffing shortages. Boo to code greens! Anywhoo I finally made it home safe to get some sleep.
On to February:
I went on a girls trip to Charleston for my friend Amanda's birthday. We drove up Saturday morning and did some shopping and went to dinner, then went out later in the night. It was so much fun and I got some pretty sweet jewelry at the market! Sunday we woke up and drove to the outlets on our way home. I arrived home just in time for the superbowl festivities. We decided to go low-key and just watch the game at home. We had my brother over so he and my husband had some guy bonding time over the game, while myself and Lexie unpacked and sorta kind of watched the game. haha. Lexie was very into the half-time show though.
My husband and I also celebrated our 1st married Valentine's Day. It also happens to be the day we got engaged two years ago, so we celebrated that too :) We had already went out to dinner earlier in the week at this super cute local italian restaurant, The Garlic Clove, so we stayed home and my husband cooked chicken marsala and garlic mashed potatoes for us. It was sooo yummy and he did such a wonderful job. One funny story to take from that night though...Ok so maybe it isn't too funny because it could have ended up badly but I just have to poke a little fun at my husband for this. We got a candle holder and one of those led candles as a Christmas gift and i have to admit I do love the led candles. So anywhoo, I walk into the kitchen and there sits a nicely cooked meal complete with the table being set, and some romantic candlelight......one problem, I noticed the flame was very very high (like much higher than normal) on the candle....soo I mentioned that it looked high and started to walk over, my husband agreeing with me. Then as I got closer I notices little black things flying in the air....So guess what I found out................................................. My husband had straight up lit the led tea-light candle thinking it was a real candle!! So after a quick extinguishing of the candle and covering the food trying to save it from the black flying things, and ok, maybe a few bad words from my poor frustrated husband....we did enjoy our meal in our intact, still standing kitchen...Praise the Lord!!!! haha. Very eventful 1st married valentines day!
Ok ok so I know that was more than a few words...sorry! I pinky promise to do a better job of upkeeping my blog. Happy Wednesday everyone!
