Weekend Recap

We had quite the busy weekend last weekend. Friday school got canceled because of hurricane Sandy which was even close to us and we had no rain and barely wind but I will take a free day. Hopefully we don't have to make it up. My mom, Jamie and I went to lunch at the french pantry. It was absolutely delicious. It was my first time. But this chicken bruschetta blew my mind. 

Friday night we went to the Zac Brown Band concert. I am not a big concert goer because I feel like they are over priced and I like music but I'm not obsessed with songs and artists like some are. Anyways I went and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was an awesome concert and I would go back to see him again.  We went with Richard and Chelsey and ran into some of our friends Austin and Erica so we all had a blast. 

We had a little to much fun so I woke up for FL/GA to go downtown looked outside at the weather and said I rather not go into a wind storm. So Jeff made us breakfast and then we headed over to my moms where Delainey and I took a little nap on the couch to recover!

We then headed over to our friends house as they were having a FL/Ga party! I was so happy to see FLORIDA loose!  

Long but fun weekend! I have another short week this week because it is our Fall Festival. Much needed break after Halloween parties today with a 22 eight year olds!

For other exciting news I found out over the weekend one of my close friends, Lauren, is PREGNANT!! Babies are everywhere! We are so excited for them and can't wait to find out the sex of the little bambino so we can spoil another baby since we are still holding out on having our own!

Haigan's Baptism

We had quite the busy weekend. After Jamie's birthday party on Friday night we were up and early to head to Haigan's baptism. It was such a special day that I was honored to be apart of. I have the sweetest little goddaughter. Here are a few pictures from the special day that Lauren took of us. 

Cute little Bishop Family. 

Dustin is Brandon's younger brother who is the godfather.

Crunch Time!

Well Jeff and I have shook and the bet is officially on. We have two months to see who looses the most weight. We obviously will be doing it by percentage since he is a lot bigger and has a lot more to loose. We are weighing in tomorrow morning to see our start weight and then we are weighing in on December 21st to see who wins. Whoever wins can get whatever they want under a certain amount. He put a limit on the dollars spent because he knew I would say a trip to europe or something ridiculous.

When I lost my weight year or so ago I just was obsessive about it so I suppose I will become obsessive again and work out non stop. I don't know why I fell off the wagon again but 8 pounds or so have slowly crept back on since last year. I'm going with all the traveling and now football season which is eating dips and drinking beer.

Fingers crossed I win as I have already picked out what I want!!  Jeff said I have no chance, but my only hope is that is still is football season and he loves to drink beer with the boys and watch football so his chances of loosing weight while drinking beer is slim to none!!

Let the working out and dieting begin!!

Surprise Birthday Party.

One of the things I have been up to lately is planning a surprise birthday party for my sisters 28th birthday. She has had an exciting year having her little girl, Delainey. But I'm sure as most of you know when you have kids things stop being about you and start becoming about the little girl. So I thought Jamie could deserve a night to be just about her. I just wanted her close girl friends to have a little dinner. I have to say a couple of her friends helped me out. First problem to arise was the invitations. I decided to do mini champagne bottles have personalized labels for them. I went to ship them and the guys said we can't ship alochol. I was like great. Everyone lives in town except for two. I got one of Jamie's friends to help deliver. 

I was kind of nervous Jamie was going to find out but I enlisted the help of her husband who did such a great job tricking her to think he was taking her out for her birthday and I would be babysitting Delainey. She said this was the first time she ever was really surprised in her life. I caught a pic or two.

I decided to go with a black and white theme because I have quite a bit of stuff left over from my wedding and what I've accumulated over the year. Here are some pictures of the table. I decided to just do all candles. 

We had a great time and I had Maggianos cater all the food. Jamie is a true italian and loves pasta! We ate yummy cupcakes from Gilmon's Bakery after dinner and just sat around the table and talked and played some games. 
The girls left with their favors which were little white lanterns filled with all the things needed to make some of their favorite drinks with straws, napkins, mini liquor bottles, limes etc. 

It was a great a great night and I was happy my sister got to spend it with her close friends!

Ski Trip

There is no real excuse for my lack of posting. It has become a big problem. I have no excuse other than life being crazy! I will have to make some time to come and sit and recap about what we have been doing lately. I feel with all the holidays right around the corner I am not going to have very much time at all, but hopefully I will return to the blogging world sometime soon. We have lots of things coming up in the next couple of weeks, like my goddaughters baptism, FL/GA, Jamie's birthday, supper club, a wedding and much much more. 

But for now here is some exciting news for us. Today we booked a ski trip to Breckenridge, Colorado. We are going in February with my sister, parents, my cousins, and Uncle and Aunt.  I have never been to see a whole lot of snow just the little bit in North Carolina when I was up there visiting Wake. I have never been skiing so it could get interesting, but I am more excited about the little towns, hot tubs, and sitting by the fires. We are going to rent a house so we can all stay together and enjoy the four or five days we are out there. It should be lots of fun. My brother-in-law and sister are the pros at skiing so hopefully they can teach us a thing or two. Jeff and I may just be the two people sitting at the bar in the ski lodge acting like we are skiing, but really not.
