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 πŸ™‚

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 Β of 2012 πŸ™‚ So I will go month by month and see what I can remember πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚
-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 πŸ™‚

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

Christmas Time!

I apologize for my complete lack of blogging ability. I always forget. So here I sit at my last few hours of work until Christmas vacation and I figured I had better blog because I put the link on my Christmas card. So if anyone followed that link, Thank you! And I will try to be better about blogging.

Well we have done so much since I last blogged. We got a live Christmas tree and decorated it! That was so much fun. Our first Christmas as a married couple. We had a great time decorating the house and the tree.

The next weekend we were so happy to attend the Eide/Thomas wedding. Tyler was a groomsman and it was a beautiful wedding with so many cute touches. We had a great time at the wedding and also visiting with Tyler’s family since the wedding was near them.

This past weekend was BUSY. It was our 6 month anniversary so Tyler surprised me with tickets to the Lakers/Wizards game for Friday night. I am a big Dwight Howard fan. So we got to see Dwight and Kobe Bryant. Pretty cool. Then we followed that up with a Ravens/Broncos game on Sunday with Steve and Melissa, Tyler and Steve work together. So there we got to see Peyton Manning which Tyler was very excited about. In between those two big days we sandwiched our Christmas together. On Saturday night we had a delicious meal and opened our gifts to each other. That was a lot of fun! I got a new camera so hopefully my blog picture posting will be better now. We will see.

So now it is Friday and Christmas vacation is so close I can taste it. I keep wanting to call it Christmas break but then I remember I am not in school anymore so it’s really vacation I guess. Anyways we have lots of traveling to do and family to see and we are so excited! I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and the Glovers will be back and blogging in 2013. Hopefully with a New Years resolution to blog more consistently πŸ™‚
