Weekend Wrap-Up

We had a really fun weekend with really nice weather that then turned to snow this morning? So strange.

Friday was so nice and warm so we ate leftovers for dinner then went shopping! I hadn’t been on a good shopping spree in awhile so it was a lot of fun! I got some for my easter/spring centerpiece which I will post about later this week so stay tuned!

Saturday morning we tried out breakfast at a local restaurant close to our house! We had a delicious breakfast then drove around looking at local sites. I then went to get a pedicure to prepare for my trip next week to the beach!! I can’t wait. Hopefully it will be sunny and in the 70’s and I will be happy!

We found a new favorite show on Saturday, Property Wars on the Discovery Channel. If you have not watched it before then you should because it is such a fun show! Saturday night we had date night and went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner to celebrate 9 months of marriage! We then went to see Safe Haven which was really good!

Sunday we went to community group, church then had brunch with our friends Matt and Katie at Cracker Barrel. Does it get much better than Cracker Barrel for home cooking not at home? I don’t think so. Grocery shopping then a lazy day around the house. We discovered another new show. Downton Abbey. We watched the pilot and now I can’t wait to get home tonight and watch another episode!

So that was our weekend in all it’s glory! We had a fun time and enjoyed it. Next weekend I will be out of town and it will be the first time we’ve been apart over night since we got married 😦 I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

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 🙂

At the Lakers/Wizards game! Christmas Cookies! Our Christmas! Peyton Manning Dwight Howard! All decorated! Getting our first Christmas Tree together!

The end of Twilight :(

Well this weekend marked a momentous occasion, the end of Twilight. Breaking Dawn pt. 2 The Epic Finale finally came out and we were there Friday night to see it! My husband is amazing and went with me to see it! I wore my Team Edward shirt from Twilight in honor of the final movie! It was in a word- amazing. I won’t say much because some of my friends have not seen it yet but it was excellent. Probably my favorite of all of the movies. Since Friday was our 5 month anniversary we followed the movie up with a Chocolate Molten Lava Cake at Chilli’s. You haven’t lived until you’ve had one of those. It was Tyler’s first time and he now understands. Those things are divine!

On Saturday poor Tyler had to work so we can spend the week between Christmas and New Years in Georgia with family! He left at 8:30 and came home at 2:30 and said “You’re still getting ready?” I was waiting on my nails to dry. We went to Michaels and bought Christmas ornaments and stand-in stockings because I still have a good bit of work to do on our homemade ones so those will be ready for next Christmas! We did a little Christmas shopping and then went to a Japanese steakhouse we had gotten a Groupon for! It was delicious and an entertaining time.

On Sunday we did our typical grocery shopping which was much easier this week since we leave on Wednesday for Thanksgiving in Ohio!!! We had dinner with our friends Matt and Katie at Carrabba’s, delicious. Then we came home and watched the movie Battleship which was a pretty good movie! We really enjoyed it but warning you may dream about running from aliens after watching this movie.

It’s a short week of work then we get to head to Ohio for fun Thanksgiving times with family! I am so excited to see everyone!!!

P.S. ROLL TIDE!
