Memorial Day weekend

Our Memorial Day weekend was so much fun and was cram packed, without being too crazy!! It flew by way too quickly though! 

We ate at the Vortex in little 5 points

Travis had the Elvis burger

Got to see Davy and Nena before they moved to Detroit

Went to Stone Mountain for the Memorial Day laser show and fireworks

Our friends Heather, Antioni, and baby Tred came with us

 Our view for the show

We hiked up that mountain, and boy was it harder than I thought it would be!

Last weekend Charlie and I had an awesome thanksgiving! We went down to Peachtree City to eat with my parents and our best family friends, the Smartt's! 

I told Charlie that we never take pictures on Holiday's- this is the result!

Jones', Crose's, Smartt's, Madsen's, & Hale

Afterwards we played some games, and then we drove home early since I had to work Black Friday at 5am... Gotta love working in retail! 

Later that weekend we checked out Paces Mill. It is a State Park near our place! It was really pretty and a fun walk! I got jabbed by a stick, but other than that it was perfect. It is right on the Chattahoochee! People were fly fishing in the freezing water, and there are biking and hiking trails throughout it. 

Chattahoochee love
Hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving week as well!

insta awesome

So, I kinda take forever completing little diy projects... Please tell me I am not the only one! I blame not enough time/ sleep in a day.... and maybe too many great tv shows that occupy too much of my time. (anyone else addicted to Bones or Breaking Bad right now)? Anyway, I finally actually got around to finishing this. I am in love!!

This is now framed and on our wall. I wanted to combine some of our family pictures but have a little bit of a separation as well. Big thanks to my sister in law Katie for rounding up some of Charlie's pictures for me. I would like to point out a specific picture. Check out row one column four. Charlie was fat at one point in his life! Obese baby! Love you babe :)

news so cool you might jump for joy(or at least you should)!

Remember that one time I didn't post anything on my blog for like 2 months. Oops! Can you tell that things have been a little crazy lately?! Every weekend has seemed to be insanely scheduled. The weekends are supposed to be my time to rest up and prepare for a new week. My typical work week is Monday thru Friday from 7am-4pm. Waking up that early can be the death of me sometimes! However, after my 2 hour nap this afternoon, I am feeling quite refreshed!

So what is new, you ask? Well lots! 

ummm can I get a drumroll please... (I really hope that you are mentally doing a drumroll as you read this).... My friend Carli and I are working on opening up our own online clothing store. I am beyond excited!!!! I have always wanted to own a boutique- like since I was 10! An online store just felt like a perfect fit in both of our lives- especially at this time. It was only a short time after meeting and getting to know each other that Carli and I realized we both had the same goals and inspirations. It honestly felt like a lightbulb turned on as soon as we met... and we both knew...we were actually capable of doing this! All it took was that. I am now a believer in the power of two. We are hoping to open up in January... maybe sooner. We are currently in the boring business stages, but I am so excited to show all of you our ideas and clothing we are waiting to purchase. I can't wait to make this step in my life. Everything seems to be falling into place :)

is coming soon!!!!

 Last Friday, we went to the braves vs dodgers game with our friends Lindsay and Cory. I am happy to say that we beat the dodgers in extra innings! Especially, since last year they beat us at the game we went to. For some weird reason Charlie still claims that he is a dodgers fan over the braves. We will see how long that lasts :)
