A little mud on the tires (and a lot on us)

Despite my love for purses, cute clothes and painted toenails, I’ve never been what you’d call a girly-girl. Bugs, frogs and lizards have never sent me squealing in fear. And I’m not scared to get a little muddy. Or – as was the case Labor Day weekend – a LOT muddy. There’s an 850 acre … Continue reading

All partied out — for now :)

To celebrate his last year in the 20s, Derek hired a local band to play for his birthday bash this weekend and invited everyone he knew to come out and enjoy the night. His place is the perfect set up for a party like that. Far enough out that he doesn’t have many neighbors and … Continue reading

I survived BamaJam 2010 :)

I somehow survived another long weekend with very little sleep. And despite being tired, I can honestly say I wouldn’t trade the past few days for anything. With the exception of some minor drama that isn’t worth talking about, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. A storm soaked us all on Saturday, so we laughed as we … Continue reading

In desperate need of a nap

My eyes are heavy. I can’t stop yawning. My entire body feels like it might collapse from sheer exhaustion, and I can’t stop daydreaming about my great-big bed and a giant pile of pillows. And although the thought of crashing after work sounds really appealing, it’s not going to happen. As soon as I leave … Continue reading

Picture time :)

Back to reality after a long weekend with family… it always goes by too fast. Maggie Mae seemed to enjoy the trip. She aggravated Murphy (who outweighs her by at least 40 pounds), stole his favorite rawhide bone and generally acted like the attention-whore that she is. This was her favorite spot: She insisted that … Continue reading

I’m ready…

Words cannot express how extremely excited I am that the weekend is nearly here. And for the first time in weeks, we’re actually expecting a semi-sunny Saturday. Which can only mean one thing… Time to hit the lake!! If all goes as planned, I’ll be stretched out on the boat, soaking up whatever sun the … Continue reading

A little too much excitement

While not nearly as busy as last weekend, this one definitely had its fill of interesting moments. Let me break it down for you. Friday night, I left a low-key cookout to attend a friend’s birthday party at a local hole-in-the wall bar. Probably not a genius move, but I wanted to take part in … Continue reading

Pictures from the lake and a plea for help

Well, this weekend was every bit as fantastic as I had hoped it would be — even though I didn’t sleep nearly enough. Maggie had a blast at the lake on Saturday. She figured out that she could swim, and I figured out how difficult it was to wash mud off an unwilling dog. I … Continue reading

Crawfish, fishing poles and an Irish pub

Y’all… I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am that the weekend is nearly here. In a few short hours I’ll be done with work for two glorious days. It’s not that I don’t enjoy my job. I do. But good grief, do I ever need a break. And I have a feeling that this … Continue reading
