This weekend I'm heading to Charleston for a bridal shower and Josh and I are starting a couples bible study soon, and Saturday evening the bible study leaders are having the couples over for dinner to get to know each other. I can't wait to meet everyone and am hopeful for the new friendships that we will form. This weekend we will also celebrate two years of owning our home. My how time flies! I love, love, love that little place we call home. Like, so much so that everyday I drive slowly down the street after I back out of the driveway so that I can admire our house...you guys, I just really love it! #crazylady #iknow
Speaking of owning our home for two years, I really need and want to do an updated home tour soon. I'll put that towards the top of my to-do list.
This summer, or well this year really, it's been tough for me to find my blogging groove. For no in particular reason that I can put my finger on, I just haven't been writing as much. I hope a writing bug strikes me soon, because it truly is one of my favorite things to do.
Last Sunday I joined every other woman in America at Bath & Body Works to take advantage of their candle sale and get a couple fall scents. I went with Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Apple something or another. I can't wait to get those bad boys going. Speaking of, I'm also having an internal debate on when it's appropriate to get my fall decor out. I know I'll put it up far too early, per usual, but who cares!
Looking ahead, I am extremely excited for next month as we'll be celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary, and taking our anniversary trip the first weekend of October! Murphy is tagging along and it's actually embarrassing how excited Josh and I are to take him 1. on his first trip 2. to the beach for the first time. Josh's anniversary gift came in last week and it's strategically hidden in the house. We like to follow the traditional anniversary gifts list, and the theme this year is cotton. Last year's theme was paper. Here's the list if you're curious about what each years gift is.
For fun, here's a few recaps from our first anniversary. Where the pictures disappeared to in these posts, I'm not sure! Reflection Celebration
We're patiently anticipating the start of football season in two weeks. I've started slowly getting out our Carolina things to hang on the front door, flag for the yard, etc. Here's to hoping we have a great season. Actually here's to really hoping we have a great season because I almost had a heart attack trying to secure tickets against LSU this week, and therefore I'll be upset if I don't get to see a good game due to the fact that I risked my health to get these tickets ;) We have a Monday morning meeting at 10:30 a.m. each week and wouldn't you know the day that football tickets went on sale at 10:00 a.m., our meeting gets changed to 10:00 that day! I literally ran back to my desk after the meeting and saw a yellow exclamation point next to the LSU that said "Not many left!". Cue my freak out. Somehow I ended up grabbing seats before they were all taken, and all is right in the football (and my husbands) world.
Cheers to the weekend, friends!
