Our First Year

On October 18, Tommy and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary! Can't believe it's been a year already. It has been so fun sharing my life with Tommy and I can't wait for many years together. On Fri Oct 16 we headed out to Hendersonville to celebrate. We stayed in a beautiful bed & breakfast. We went to Pearson Falls, shopping in Hendersonville, visiting small mountain towns, eating junk food, and went to the Biltmore House on Sun. The Biltmore was beautiful and we both said we wish we could have a house like that. For my present he got me 2 tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera on my birthday (Dec 3) in Raleigh and framed my Phantom poster that I got on our honeymoon. I love this musical (this will be my 2nd time seeing on my birthday) so I was dropping hints to Tommy that he should get me this for my birthday. I got Tommy a picture book on Holly Springs. It is so hard shopping for guys. I will get pictures posted this weekend.

Favorite Time of Year

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love seeing all the leaves change, cuddling in a warm blanket on the couch during the cold nights and drinking hot chocolate, campfires, pumpkins, and houses decorated for Halloween. Nick and I went yesterday to a pumpkin patch where I got some pumpkins, gourds, and mums to decorate my house with. I also can't wait to start going to some haunted houses. Tommy and I have gone to a couple of them since we have been together and they been fun. Of course, I scream everytime something jumps out at us (it does not help when Tommy is behind me pushing me) and Tommy can't help but laugh at me. So I am really looking forward to October and November. I go hog wild with all my fall decorations. Now I wish we had some snow!

Weekend Getaways

Sorry, I have not updated lately. Been out of town alot. 2 weekends ago, Tommy and I went camping at Pilot Mountain. My parents, Lisa, Nick and Lisa's friend, Allen came up on Sat and spend the night too. Had a great time sitting around the campfire watching Tommy cook. That man sure can cook. Everyone loved the steaks that we had on Sat. Nothing like cooking over a campfire. Nick loved it and he told Lisa he wants to do it again.

Then 4 weekends ago, Tommy and I went to the beach for Sat. and Sun. We went to Kure Beach and Southport on Sun. Had a wonderful time just laying out on the beach and looking through the stores at Southport.

It was very nice to getaway and spend some time alone together. Tommy makes every trip so enjoyable. Can't wait until Oct. for our 1st anniversary trip to Hendersonville, NC.

My Chicks are Bigger Girls Now!

My baby chicks are laying eggs now. They are getting so big (sniff sniff). Tommy called me at work to let me know he found a first egg. We have not tried one yet because they are too small. But next month we will be eating them so yum-yum.

Went Back To School

Went back to college yesterday to get my notary public. It was weird being back in the classroom after 8 years but I enjoyed. It was an all day class with a test at the end. Passed the test (whew!) and got my dipolma. Now I have to submit my application to the Sec. of State to get approved and take an oath before the Register of Deeds before I become a notary public.

Stole an Idea

Meredith gave me a great idea when she said that they re-arranged their living room. So that is what we did on Sun. After church, Tommy and I along with my parents went to an antique store in Benson and got a new couch set. I took the sleeper sofa and Mom took the loveseat. We have such great men that moved couches in the very hot heat with their church clothes on. It was very spur of the moment. Then we got home and moved the new couch and Tommy's chair around. The living room looks alot more cozy now.
