I'm still here!

Sorry that I haven't posted in a while! Things have been really busy at work and home recently, I just haven't had as much time to blog. So, I figured I'd do a quick post to update you on what we've been up to recently.

Two weekends ago I went on my friend Kelsey's bachelorette party weekend in Wilmington. It was a ton of fun and really great to get away and relax.

Last weekend, Kevin and I went to the beach since he didn't get to go the weekend before. ;) We were also celebrating the craziness at his work finally being over... so happy to be back to normal schedules!

Next Monday is my birthday, but I will be spending it in Salt Lake City for a conference for work.  So, we're going out this Friday to celebrate with my friends. I'm super excited and we're going to try a new restaurant in Raleigh, ORO.  It's tapas style, which should be interesting and hopefully that means we will get to try a lot of different dishes. 

Saturday, we are taking a big step and tilling up our yard in preparation for new sod! We have already started killing the grass and weed mixture that was there... which should make the process much easier and stop the weeds from coming back.  I will make a separate post detailing the process and before and after pictures. I can't wait to get our new grass, I think it will really help improve our curb appeal! Here's a picture of our grass right now, can't wait for it to be gone ;)


  1. Oooh, can't wait to see the tile after pic! Happy (almost) weekend!

  2. I think your grass actually looks pretty good! I'm a newlywed wife ( and we're celebrating our anniversary and my birthday by buying a house this week. I enjoyed finding your blog today! Cute!

  3. I was thinking I wished we were getting sod! We purchased a house in December which had been vacant for awhile. Needless to say we raked a LOT of leaves. There were so many we could not bag them all at once. Now there are spots of dead grass from where the leaves were sitting. So beware: pick up what you rake!

  4. Happy belated birthday! I hope you had a special one! I have to say I love seeing pictures of your dog, he is so precious! :) Oh, and I'll be in Raleigh with my brother in-law, his fiance and my husband in September, I believe. I would love to meet up with you for a drink/dinner!

    1. Thanks! That sounds like so much fun, I'd definitely be up for a G2G. I have been following you for so long too, lol! Just let me know when you figure out when you'll be here and when you'll be available!!

    2. Ok, I definitely will! Still trying to figure out dates. It's looking like September or October. I'll keep you posted!
