Well Hello Dolly.

Well we started out 2013 with an exciting new addition to the family. A 3 year old greyhound/pointer dog, Dolly Piper Glover. We had been looking at her for awhile and finally got to go meet her last Saturday. We loved her and brought her home with us that day. For those of you who know me you know I’m not the biggest dog person. But Dolly has made me a dog person. She is so sweet, adoring and well behaved. I had a couple days off this week so it was good to spend some time with her getting her used to the house. She is so well behaved that she stays at home with free roam of the downstairs while we are at work and she has not misbehaved once.

So that is our biggest news, this week we also had our first snow of the winter. It has been ridiculously warm for January until this week. This week brought very cold temperatures and snow. I had to drive to work in the snow on Thursday and snow driving is not in my comfort zone. Fortunately it was only about an inch so I survived. I cannot tell you how ready I am for sunshine and the beach and warm weather!

So that is the news in the Glover house. Other than getting Dolly we have not done much else exciting. Hopefully we can do something else exciting soon to blog about. Hope you all are doing great 🙂

Adios 2012, Hello 2013!

Well it’s a new year. 2012 was a good year. I thought I would share some highlights as best I can remember them. This may require me going back on Facebook or Twitter and seeing what I was doing at some of these times. Other times like June for instance are quite obvious, for those who don’t know Tyler and I got married in June  of 2012 🙂 So I will go month by month and see what I can remember 🙂

January 2012- Tyler and I rang in the New Year in Ohio with my family. He headed back to drive home to Virginia and had to turn around and come back due to ice and snow.
-I got to enjoy a particularly mild winter as I lived in Southern Georgia this winter. 30 in the mornings, 60 in the afternoon, I couldn’t complain except for the whole long distance relationship thing.

February 2012- Tyler and I spent Valentines apart. He sent me flowers and I sent him a box with a “long distance date night”
-I traveled to Alabama for a wedding shower for my best friend!

March 2012- Bachelorette party in Alabama for my best friend, Anna!
-First wedding shower for me in Georgia and The Hunger Games!!!

April 2012- I can’t think of anything exceptionally exciting. I tried my best to enjoy my last month as a Nanny for my two favorite little girls.

May 2012- I left my nanny job of 2 years 😦 That was a hard day.
-Second wedding shower in Tennessee!
-Moved to Ohio and got my wisdom teeth out
-Second round of Engagement pictures, food tasting, cake tasting and more packed into one weekend!
-My bachelorette party

June 2012- WEDDING month! So you can only imagine all that I did from June 1st-16th. We traveled to Virginia and moved a bunch of my stuff in and did countless wedding tasks to get ready.
-June 16th was wedding day and June 17th we headed to Mexico!

July 2012- We settled into married life in Virginia. We had 4th of July at the Twaddells and did our best to brave the heat and explore the surrounding areas.

August 2012- My birthday month! Olive Garden and chocolate cake make for a good birthday 🙂
-My family came and we did Extreme Home Makeover Ballard style.

September 2012- We did some traveling. We went to Tennessee then we went to meet my family for a lake weekend.
-We traveled to New Jersey for a wedding with Tyler’s parents.

October 2012- Well there was Halloween when we dressed up as Stefan and Elena from the Vampire Diaries

November 2012- Thanksgiving in Ohio with my family!

December 2012- Christmas in Tennessee then on to Atlanta for more Christmas, a visit from Anna and Kyle, Miles’s birthday party and then back to Virginia to finish out the year with awful head colds.

Hello 2013. We can’t wait to see what you have in store 🙂

Oh and 2013 has started out good, ROLL TIDE ROLL!
