Blog Neglect

Wow...I didn't realize that I had be neglecting my blog so much! I've been doing 9-10 hour days at work and the weeks just slipped away from me! But that's okay because it means my vacation is THREE DAYS AWAY!!!!!! So freaking excited. We have had these plane tickets since FEBRUARY people. It seriously felt like it would never get here. Jacob and I have spent the last few days getting our lives together and running last minute errands to prepare. Being gone for 3 weeks is a long time ya know. And life in Virginia is gonna march right on without us. But I think we got things taken care of.

Also, another random update. My job at work kind of changed. Now I work more with kids in the daycare aspect of the Y. I am LOVING it. I had no idea I liked little kids so much. But I really enjoy hanging out with them every day. I was ready to move on from Aquatics so it worked out nicely.

Anywho, I'll do my best to update throughout the trip, but let's be honest. We're hanging out with family that we haven't seen in a YEAR soooo I might slack again. All I can say is THANK GOODNESS my sis in law Haley watches the Bachelorette because I would hate to fall behind on that while I'm gone! hah. Okay, rambling now. I guess I just missed my blog so much =( See you all in 3 weeks...Seattle here we come!

Got the Bug

I had an absolutely lovely weekend feeling like this
At first I thought I had food poisoning...but it turns out my roomie Joe had it too. Sooooo seems like it may have been a little bug that followed me home from work. Not fun. But luckily I landed one amazing hunk of a husband who came home early from work on Friday with ginger ale and chicken noodle soup in hand. {and then held my hair while I puked it up.} He's the best =) Luckily it was only a 24 hour thing, but it was NOT fun. Thanks Jakey for rockin my world.

Brad Paisley H20 2 Tour

I had been wanting to get tickets to Brad Paisley SO badly. But I just couldn't really justify spending so much money on a concert. Enter Groupon. The email of the day was Brad Paisley tickets for 15 DOLLARS! You better believe I got right on that. And I was the first person at the Box Office to pick them up, meaning I got the very front seats of the section. Not too shabby.

No caption necessary.

B-Rad Paisley

Our seats weren't to die for like Dierks Bentley but it was still really fun! All the guys did awesome and the show was really upbeat. They performed in an outdoor amphitheater and the weather was ahhhhmazing. Nothin beats a country concert.

June is here!

May seriously just flew by! I can't say I'm not happy about that because Jacob and I are leaving on our vacation this month!!!! We are both so excited to be heading back west to visit our families for 3 whole weeks! I'm just going to do a little May photo recap since I've been slacking on my blogging.

Mal and I did some serious gardening this month. Our original garden grew like a weed so we expanded it and planted some more stuff. We also redid the whole front yard planter.

We added everything on the right and the stepping stones.

In the front yard we planted gardenias, jasmine, hydrangeas, and some kind of lilies.

We spent most of our weekends at the BEACH.
We found a crab.

Zoey is still causing her usual trouble.

Mal and Joe got a backyard furniture set and Mal and I wasted no time in decorating the backyard and having a bbq!

Last but not least, Mal and Jacob played in a doubles Beach Volleyball tournament. It was really fun to watch them play!

So that's May in a nutshell! Now, bring on JUNE and our vacation!
