blogging hiatus: June

Oh June, a fantastic month because we got our dollhouse! ♥ more loads on that in the near future!

also, some time in the sun, oh hello summer! Button & Doogle went to the beach together, for Doog's first time meeting the ocean - & he charged right in to the Atlantic. adorable! I seriously fall more in love with that little guy every single day, & i think Button does too. He's the perfect addition to our little circle.

& Lots of renovation projects & planning came into the works in June, including paint! I waited in line for about two hours to meet a southern rock legend, named Gregg Allman & get his signature on his autobiography. I also got to celebrate the month a little sunflower was born before June turned into July....much needed. Even got to have a wine slumber party with three of my girls i routinely spent the night with in high school, flashbacks in a really good way. Summer has been kind so far.

blogging hiatus: May

hello! i ventured away from blogging for two whole months for no particular reason. This is me catching up on the best parts of May...

first & foremost one of my very best friends & old roomie got married on cinco de mayo! I wouldn't have missed it for anything & drove down south with a special gift i made for the bride to be, her very own garter for the big day! She surprised when their engagement party turned into an official wedding ceremony. She was lovely, & it was so sweet how they wrote their own vows & it brought tears to my eyes!

the mista & i ventured to Delray Beach for a little hang time with JT$ & Simon... wandering, hot tubs & hotel rooms. An interesting spanish man even drew me, unbeknownst to me while we sat at a restaurant for lunch. i kept his profile portrait as a memento. kind of strangely awesome.

we also spontaneously drove to Orlando mid-week to catch Thrice on their farewell tour, & it was seriously pretty awesome. Last time i saw them @ House of Blues they were clearly tore up & awesome is definitely not an adjective i would have used to describe their opening performance for Brand New. They completely made up for it that night, nailing songs from all their albums. I can't believe their long stint of touring has come to an end, but it was so dope to see them on stage again.

my boo (closet redneck) fiancé & i went road trippin up to NC for Memorial Day Weekend to meet my cousin, Aunt, strangers & NASCAR enthusiasts to do a little partyin, race style in Charlotte.
