book club help

I am a big time nerd and desperately want to be part of a book club! I am thinking starting my own, but really thought it would be fun to join one with people I don't really know. It would be so much easier to talk to a person rather than a dog about books! Any ideas????

Matt asking for your help!

Where are you my wonderful, beautiful Friday! I can't wait to feel the sweet freedom of 2:40 when all of my fourth grade babies exit for the weekend. Even though I have no big plans, I am just ready to lounge around. Please come as fast as you can!

the BEST mexican place EVER!

If you ever travel to Charleston, SC there is a Mexican restaurant you must try! Our good friends Lauren and John live on Mt. Pleasant and took us to try Santi's when we visited one weekend. Right when I saw the place I knew it was special. The restaurant is in an old Huddle House that was converted. Talk about awesome! The salsa is fresh and full of cilantro and onion served with thick tortilla chips. The food tastes home made and authentic! We can not go to Charleston and not eat here. Since it was our anniversary we could not think of a better place to celebrate! Dern they should pay me for all this advertisement! hahah

Fresh margaritas!

Happy Anniversary to us!

This weekend the hubby and I celebrated our one year anniversary. He surprised me on Friday with a diamond palmetto tree necklace. I was completely shocked since we said we weren't giving gifts! We then went out to dinner with my parents to celebrate since our actually anniversary wasn't until today. Saturday we went to Charleston for our official celebration! It was such a blast. We went on a Fort Sumter tour, visited the aquarium, had drinks at Tommy Condons, and had dinner at Santis. We really enjoyed ourselves. Below are some pictures from the trip!

My babies

I just HAD to share the adorable pictures of my babies after they got groomed! Winston does look kinda scary in the picture, but he really looks cute in real life! :)

Get together!

Monday night I had three of my best friends from college over for dessert and drinks. I had some strawberry thumbprint cookies, cake truffles, and cream cheese stuffed strawberries. For our drink, I took frozen orange juice, frozen lime juice, 3 cans water, and half a bottle of vodka! It was so yummy! I really missed these girls, it has been awhile since we all got together. Hopefully it will be a new tradition! Sorry the hubby was already asleep so he couldn't take a pic of us!

Where have the pooches gone

With all the snow falling here (7 inches!) we decided to go out and play in it. We wanted our babies to also get the chance to play as well. The dogs HATE rain so we didn't think they would enjoy the snow anymore than that. We took them in the front yard with us...without leashes... to play. They loved it so much they took off around the neighborhood playing in it. Luckily it was 7:30 in the morning so no one else was crazy enough to be up! We had to chase them all over the neighborhood. They continued to play in the snow in the safety of our fenced in back yard. Here are some pictures of the craziness!

look how much snow covered my car!

Let there be snow in SC

We actually have received snow in Columbia, SC. The students got out an hour early today (Woohoo!) and I ran to the grocery store real quick. People were going crazy buying food like it was going to be the next Iceage! Of course all I bought was non-essentials! The snow started falling shortly after I got home. It is really sticking!Here are some pictures of the puppies playing in the snow. Happy weekend!

I HATE being sick!

This morning I woke up to the room spinning. I could barely even walk to the bathroom to get sick. My husband did such a good job taking care of me, even googling my problems to see what was wrong with me. According to him I looked like a dead fish on the bathroom floor. Well, after going to the doctor I realize I have an inner ear infection and sinus infection. AWESOME...

I am pushing myself to go to school tomorrow because it is our Valentine's Celebration. My kids would be so upset if I wasn't there to celebrate. Wish me luck tomorrow!

p.s. this fish looks much cuter than I did!

Hubby's birthday!

Yesterday was my wonderful's husband birthday! Here is a cute pic of him...

I arranged a little get together at Copper River with a few of our friends to celebrate. I also made him his favorite cake, Red Velvet, for a dessert. I went a little crazy with the decorations, but it tasted great! I decorated the table with little happy birthday confetti and crepe paper. It was such a great time. Here are some of the pictures from last night. Enjoy-
