We headed out of town Friday to go to Tallahassee to visit our friends Lauren and Todd. It just so happened that Wake was playing FSU. We won't talk about the results of the game because FSU is extremely good and Wake is terrible! sad to say but I think the years of Wake going to the Orange Bowl, ACC champs and having a winning record are over.
Friday night we hung out at Lauren and Todds house and we cooked out and have delicious white sangria! Saturday we are up super early to tailgate and head to the game. It was scorching outside! Lauren and I were sweating like no other so when the score was already 28 to 0 with 9 minutes left in the second quarter we said we are out of here and walked to a restaurant near by to have some drinks and appetizers while the boys sweat it out! I know Jeff wanted to see all of his coaches from college so that was good.

We then went home and took some naps and got freshened up and went up to Thomasville, GA. My how things change the last place we wanted to go were the bars on the "strip" where we lived when we use to live in tallahassee for college. The town was so cute I want to go back when the shops are open. But we went to dinner at this place called Jonah's. The food was absolutely to die for. Everything we had was delicious. I had parmesan crusted grouper with grits and I couldn't even eat half of it I was so full but it was amazing!! We definitely will have to make a trip back there next time we are in town.

Since my birthday was a couple of weeks ago Lauren made me homemade oreo ice cream cake! I hate to admit it but I had two slices of that sucker. It was probably one of the best desserts I have ever made. I am going to have to try to make it.

We had to get up early on Sunday so I could drop Jeff off downtown at the Jaguar game and I came home to relax and get ready for the week to start. It was great seeing Lauren and Todd as always. We sure wish they lived closer so we could see them more frequently.

Pic Recap!

I have been neglecting my blog for quite some time. Here is what we have been up to in pictures..

Labor day weekend Al & B took me to the winery for my birthday in St. Augustine where we listened to good music, had delicious white sangria and hung out. We ended up on St. George St for some drinks then met Carlton and Ash at the Conch house for dinner. We always end up at someone's house until the wee hours of the night talking, drinking, and playing intense games of catch phrase.

 Jeff loving on Haigan.

This past weekend was Cam's 2nd birthday party. She is obsessed with Elmo so Al went with the theme and it turned out great. 

she loves her some baby dolls. 

and some Minnie Mouse

Yesterday we had some friends and their families over for the Jag game. I made come teal cake balls. 

We got our outdoor sectional delivered just in time and Jeff's friend came and hooked up the TV on the patio. Jeff is totally in heaven now that he can enjoy football season on the patio with his TV and kegerator. We were not to thrilled with the outcome of the game but it was a good time. We got food catered in from a local BBQ place and had tons of left overs so both of our families came over to dinner to finish it all up. I was exhausted last night and went to bed at 9:30 and still had a hard time getting up for work today. 

For other exciting news our backsplash got put in on Friday and they came to finish up the grout this morning. It is crazy how some tile changed our kitchen so much. The tile guy was trying to talk me out of doing the whole wall  and go over the cabinets because he said he hasn't ever done that before but I said I for sure want it and it turned out great. 

Here's a picture of the main wall but we did do some over on the side wall of cabinets too. We did a tumbled stone. I love subway tile so this was sort of way for me to get it but with a more distressed look. 

We have a busy week of work and then we are off to Tallahassee on Friday. We are going to stay with our friends, Lauren and Todd. Wake Forest plays FSU this weekend so with it being so close Jeff and I always try to make it over! My sister and her husband are coming too so it will be a fun weekend!
