2014 Recap - April - June

Hi all, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! My Saturday was spent laying on the couch napping, watching trash TV, then napping more, then going to my company's Holiday party. There was a lot of drink tickets, food and an ugly sweater contest.

Sunday there was more napping, my first ever trip to Publix and even more cookie baking. I have to say, after all the hype, I was pretty impressed with the Publix. A young lad did forcibly take my groceries to the car, but it was all in the name of customer service, so it was all good.

Alright, on to the 2014 recap. As I was looking through my pictures I realized that I didn't save very many pictures from that time and I had a heck of a time remembering what we did. Slowly I started to piece everything together..

April - Kev sent me an edible arrangement and which came with this creepy balloon. I was driving home and it kept creeping closer and closer to my head until it was looming over my shoulder.

In April Kev and I took a mini vacation and went even further South. We drove all the way down to Savannah GA then up to Charleston SC. 

We absolutely loved Savannah. The hotel we stayed in was withing walking distance from a ton of restaurants and shops. I was also really impressed by the lack of open container laws. You can just walk around and drink to your heart's content in Savannah. 

We also went on a tour of a haunted house which wasn't terribly haunted at all.

On the way to Charleston we stopped at Tybee Island which was absolutely beautiful.

I will never again take such a perfect beach picture but Kev hates his squinty eyes. I'll get him some sunglasses the next time.

This was also the trip where I completely underestimated the temperature. I packed for 65-70 and it was more like 80. Sadly that wasn't the first time I've done that. 

This was also the trip when both of our debit cards were compromised. Thankfully BBT is really good about taking care of you when that happens and we got all of our money back but we both had to get new debit cards which was a pain. 

 May -  I started this blog! And the world rejoiced... :) 

May was pretty low key. It was the month I decided it was time to start looking for a new job. I'd been at Netsertive for almost a year and knew that the opportunities just weren't there for me. I wanted to be a Sales manager and it wasn't going to happen. I started submitting resumes in late April and interviewing in May. FYI, you have to be really creative when it comes to getting time off for interviews. I think I had "contractors" at the house and Kev might have gotten "sick". 

I did the Running of the Bulls 8K at the end of the month and  had a pretty decent time. Every year I think about doing it and this year I did, unfortunately it was the year of the neon yellow shirt. I'd really like it if it wasn't so obnoxious.

Also in May my parents came to visit for a few days and we took them on a day trip to Wrightsville Beach. I have a picture of it on my Instagram but it wouldn't copy over here. Oh well. Pretend you see me at the beach

 June - In June I ran the Susan Komen 5k for the 4th time. The Komen was my very first 5k back in 2011 so it's always a special race for me.

We also had the annual Choir Brunch at the house, It's when I make a crap-ton of brunch food for the members of Kev's choir to celebrate their year. 

At the end of the month we headed up to NY for Kev's high school reunion. He drove up and I flew. While we were there we got to stop at some of his home town favorites, like Spragues. Nom...

On the way back we stopped in DC and took a trip to the zoo. The zoo was lovely but I'm still a little bitter that they closed the invertebrate room the DAY before we got there. I still haven't seen a squid.

At the end of the month I celebrated my last day at Netsertive. It had been a great year but I was off to a new adventure! 

Linking Up! BLoved Boston

How was your weekend??


  1. Such a busy year including the new job. Susan G. Komen is such a great organization, so yeah for the 5k.

  2. I went to Charleston for the first time this year as well - such a gorgeous city!! xo, B

  3. My husband and I spent our first anniversary in Charleston in July! We loooved it! We're always really wanting to get to Savannah - did you prefer that to Charleston?

    1. I loved Charleston but I honestly loved Savannah a little more. Our hotel was right in the downtown area and everything was in walking distance. It was fantastic.

  4. That balloon is so creepy haha! I've always wanted to visit Savannah, it sounds beautiful!

    Stopping by from the link up :)

  5. Isn't it always the case when you take the perfect picture your spouse is doing something crazy or vice versa?!?! I just love Charleston and Savannah! But Tybee Island is my hubs actually proposed their!

    1. That's fantastic! I loved Tybee island. We said that when we go back we'll spend a day or 2 in Savannah and a few days at Tybee, it's the perfect combo.

  6. Thanks! I'd been toying around with re-starting one for a while and I'm so glad I did!
