Fat to Thin

Adam and I have been on the hunt for a new TV for our bedroom.  Our TV  worked fine so we were in no hurry to get one right away.   We waited until we could get the deal of a life time…ha! So every time we would go to Wal-Mart, Best Buy, or Target we have been checking out the TV’s and the deals they had going on.  In April we finally got our lucky day and there was a deal at Target we couldn’t pass up.  We got a 37 inch HD flat screen and we love it.

Check out the “energy star” from back when Adam’s big brother Van had this TV.  DSC_0094 (3)

I don’t miss how far the TV came out from the wall!


Adam and I were amazed at how far technology has come. 


We love how clean it looks in our room now without that enormous TV. 

Happy Saturday!

Watermelon Super Fluke


A little fishing in the pits can sure take your mind off all the work you have to do!  Pandora playing on the phone and the sound of a cast is all you need to relax after a busy day. 


We weren’t the only ones who had the same idea!  Too bad this little one didn’t have as much luck as his Adam.  It’s all about the Watermelon Super Fluke artificial bait. 


It’s starting to feel like summer time!

Spring Wrap Up

My goodness it has been busy around here!  We are 10 shows behind on all the TV shows we DVR.  As I sat and looked at our blog I realized Easter was never blogged about or the many things we had going on Holy Week.  I haven’t been in my class 3 days this week due to trainings.  I just want to get back into a routine that lets me catch up on life every now and then.  In order to remember our Spring/Easter festivities I am going to jump back in time a bit….

The Sunday before Easter our church had their annual family luncheon and egg hunt for the kiddos.  This year the wonderful ladies who organized the event added an Ester bonnet contest.   The bonnets were darling but the most hilarious was our preachers bonnet…HA!!!  Uncle Adam sure thought that sweet Annabelle was the winner of the contest!  We enjoyed watching AB and all the other children hunt for eggs.



The Tuesday of Holy Week the men of our church reenacted The Last Supper.  Adam participated last year for the first time and enjoyed it.  This was round 2!  I love it because both his big brothers are Apostles too.

After the presentation we had celebratory ice cream at the McDonald’s.  AB got her first kiddie cone and loved that it was her size!


Later that week we had our PTO Spring Carnival.  Oh my goodness was it hot, but I had so much fun.  This year I switch things up and did not do the picture booth.  I did cameo face paint for the boys and spring nails for the girls.  This little one was my first customer.  The cameo face faint was a hit!!!  


Easter Sunday was wonderful day filled with prayer, worship, and family.  Christ is Risen!  Our Easter lily that we got from my MIL opened that morning!

The Chocolate Trifle before! The Blonde brownie were amazing by themselves FYI.


Oh my it was amazing and we ate it for the rest of the week!


It was wonderful to be together on Easter.

A Love Still Strong


It has been 3 years since May 8th, 2008 when Adam and I had the best time celebrating our marriage with family and friends.  When I look back through our album I can’t believe it has been 3 years because the memories are as vivid as yesterday.  Pardon my bragging but I couldn’t have married a more perfect man for me.  I love him dearly!   



Each year we plan an anniversary getaway!  I am thankful that we get away each year from the craziness of our everyday schedule.  We started off with our honeymoon in 2008!

2008- Honeymoon – St. Lucia



2009- 1st anniversary Beaufort, South Carolina


2010- 2nd anniversary Amelia Island, FL



2011- 3rd Anniversary Apalachicola, FL

Adam and I had never been to the panhandle to vacation before so we decided to try it out.  Apalachicola is actually referred to as ‘The Forgotten Coast’ which was true since neither of us had gone there before.  We stayed in 11 Heaven at the Coombs House Inn and man was it heaven.  Everything about the place was so wonderful and relaxing. 


First place we headed  after checking in was Boss Oyster.  If I made you guess I am sure you would have said something relating to food.  We read that Boss Oyster was the place to go in Southern Living so we wanted to get our fill.   DSC_0125

Check out their oyster fixings.  Just looking at this we were excited!


2 dozen were devoured, but we hadn’t had our fill.  We had to try Journey’s End their famous sandwich.  The plate is the size of our head.  It sure was not something we would have not wanted to miss. 


The next day we drove around to visit all the local beach spots.  Our first stop was St. George Island.


We ate more oysters in town before we headed to Port St. Joe’s to hit the beaches there. 


It was the perfect getaway for my hunny and me.
