April + Life Lately

Mercy alive, I swear one of these days I'll get back in to regular blogging, one day ;) You may or may not have noticed that my page has been "temporarily unavailable" this week. That is thanks to my domain that didn't auto renew and then my DNS not matching up. That's all fixed now, praise! 

So, how is everyone? Good, I hope! I hope you had a great Easter and got to spend time with family and rejoice over our risen Savior! Over here in these parts we had a great Easter visiting our home church, as a side note we are searching for a new church home and haven't been at our current church since Christmas. It was wonderful to be back worshiping with my family and getting to hug many people that we have certainly missed over the last three months. We went to my granny's for Easter lunch and man did she whip up a fantastic meal. Josh even told me to ask her for her deviled eggs recipe.


The Saturday of Easter weekend we headed to Aiken for Steeplechase, the annual horse races we attend with Josh's family. It was a touch cool and we did get some rain showers, but it was a great day and I loved getting to pull out my first seer sucker of the season!


Josh and I have been completely immersed in American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson that is on FX right now. This Tuesday is the last episode of the 10 in the series, and y'all, I am devastated. Ha! I need to first admit that when commercials for this series started months ago Josh said "this is going to be so good, I'm can't wait to watch this." I promptly replied with "good for you, but no chance, no way, no how am I watching that." Jokes on me, folks. I immediately shut my mind off to the series because I just can't do crime series, at all and "American Crime Story" did not sound promising to me. Although the intro music is incredibly creepy in my opinion and my heart drops to my stomach every time it comes on, and I spent the whole first episode with my blanket covering my face with my eyes barely peaking out because I was so nervous as they depicted the night of the murders of Nicole and Ron; I can't get enough of this series. I have gone as far to read just about every article ever written about the case, dating from 1995 until today. I have spent hours pouring over the case, watching old footage, reading transcripts and depositions, reading the 284 question questionnaire the jurors had to fill out, I mean every thing I can get my hands on, I've read. I am so ridiculously sad it's almost over, I actually might shed a tear when the ending credits roll on Tuesday. If you haven't watched this series, you have it. You must. It is captivating and that's coming from someone who knew nothing about this case beforehand AND hates crime centered TV. The acting in this series is incredible, some of the best I've ever seen and the casting, oh my word. It's nothing short of perfection. So, go watch The People v. OJ, I promise it's worth it. Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, I have no words!

Last night Josh and I booked our first mini trip of the summer, back to Hilton Head we go. You guys know how much we love HHI! And what's even better...we're staying on a boat! Yes, a boat! A little yacht docked in Shelter Cove Marina and to say that I'm excited would be quite the understatement, I can not wait! How often do you get to stay on a boat?! We booked through AirBNB and it was incredibly easy to search for available rentals and to book, from the reviews of the boat and the owners, we should have a fantastic trip.

We've got our eyes on Myrtle Beach, Folly and Edisto as well for a few more small trip potentials over the summer. We're not taking a big trip like we did last year to Vegas, in hopes to be able to do a little kitchen renovation at some point this year.

My skin has been going a bit haywire over the last few weeks and I switched from my Clean & Clear toner back to using witch hazel and things seem to be evening out a bit. I've also started using my Clarisonic at least 3 times a week, and I've started to see a difference in my complexion. Admittedly, I wasn't using my Clarisonic enough, maybe once every two to three weeks, so I've started being better about using it. I've also been religiously using three different masks and think they have also contributed to my skin finally starting to look a bit better.



 What else is new? Let's see. Josh is almost done building a golf net the back yard, I've pulled so many weeds already this Spring that I could never see a weed again in my life and I'd sing praises, we've been hard at work sprucing up the front and back yard, we've spent hours at the park each week putting miles on those paws of Murphy, we've got one more stage (the big one) to go our of deck renovation and I am so antsy for it to be done, work for both Josh and I has been a touch stressful as of late, and I think that about sums up life :)



I'd be remiss not to mention that Monday starts Masters Week and the electricity in our house over it is tangible. We love The Masters, LOVE IT. So next week will be all golf, all day, everyday. I'm sure we'll probably talk about nothing other than golf. I sure wish we were headed to Augusta next week, maybe our luck will strike next year! We're also knee deep in to March Madness and cheering hard for our tar heels, GO UNC!

Coming up this month we've got the Spring game for Carolina next weekend, we've literally been trying to go the Spring game for at least 5 years and it never works out, until this year! It's at noon and we'll be scurring home right after to catch Saturday's Masters coverage. Super club with the girls, dads birthday, and beautiful Spring weather (we hope!) are what's on the calendar for this month.

Hoping April is a great one!
