Well Hello There!

Well, it's been a while since my last post (sorry!).  With a few weeks of the slow and simple life, I didn't have much to blog about. The easiest way to review what we've been up to is to show you all of my iPhone photos and a few others. Who doesn't love pictures? :)

Over the last few weeks we've joined some of our Nashville friends for a few activities around Nashville. We went out to 5 points in East Nashville, caught a Nashville sounds game and got together at a friend's cabin for some back woods fun! We had a great time seeing everyone!

Hanging out in East Nashville

Everyone hanging out at the Nashville Sounds game!

Having a good time at the Sounds game!

All the girls having a good time at the Cabin!

Last week I also found out that I got a position that I had completed a few interviews for! Talk about excitement! I am now an Inside Sales Assistant for a Nashville company!

Speaking of working in Nashville, while I was driving there a few weeks ago I saw this guy, hanging out of his window. I got a good laugh out of it!

Ryan has been wanting to buy a hammock for a long time but the style he likes is pretty pricey. We looked at them several times in hopes of finding something on sale, but never with any luck. Well, I was at Kmart (of all places, right?) and a funny like pack caught my eye. It was a hammock! And the exact kind that Ryan was looking for. Although it wasn't the brand he was looking for, it was the same style and waaaay cheaper (like, $30 difference!). So, we bought it. He tried it out after buying it and it seemed to hold up well...we'll see how it goes after he uses it camping the first time!

Isn't he cute? :)
The next set of pictures is really just stuff that I've been loving lately. I drink wine and fruity beers pretty regularly and as a result I try new types of both of those as often as possible. I really (really really really) love a new type of wine, Moscato. I'm sure the rest of the world has been enjoying it forever, but it's new to me.




I tried a new beer, ACE Apple Hard Cider. So yummy!
Can't forget the delicious-ness that is Breyers!

I love yogurt, but Greek yogurt is way healthier than regular. I've tried a few types
(some are gross and WAY lumpy), but this is very good and
smooth-similar to regular yogurt. Try it!
Some things we've been doing lately: playing darts (Ryan kills me!), making lots of yummy baked goods, going to the pool, and getting both sets of our keys out of my car (yes, you read that right, we're special like that). We've also been shopping for table legs and some pretty wood/stain to complete a table project we're working on. I can't wait to get it finished and moved onto finding chairs for it!

It was so close!

My first time making homemade icing! Thanks to Ryan's mom!

Pool time. Doesn't Ryan look like a cop? :) :)

Beautiful day!

The locksmith!

Cut these down a little and they'd be close to perfect!
A table that I'm using for inspiration over at www.pleatedpoppy.com.
I will use similar legs but add a great, deep stain on the top!
As excited as I am about going back to work full time, I will definitely miss seeing Ryan at lunch time everyday and being home when he gets here. Hopefully we can get our schedules synced up pretty quickly once I start. Speaking of him, he's been spoiling me lately. Well, more than usual!

The perfect breakfast-extra crispy bacon and hashbrowns!

Ryan surprised me with flowers and candy this week. So sweet!
To wrap this up, I leave you with a picture of my dead dog. Haha I kid, it's just Tiger playing dead. Which is does after he scratches his back all over the carpet. Silly boy!
