At home for a weekend!

I have been busy and I haven’t posted anything here in a long time, so today is catch-up blog day. 🙂 The past few weekends have been crazy busy, we’ve been to Gastonia, Jacksonville, all over Raleigh, etc. It’s nice to be at home for a weekend with no big travel plans to get in the way of my internet surfing or crafty time.

So anyway, in April we went to Gastonia for Adam’s step-mom’s 40th birthday and we got to stay with our friends Josh and Sharla and their new baby Jackson.

Jackson Collins

He is adorable, of course, and Josh and Sharla are awesome parents, of course. We had a lot of fun playing with him and hanging out with the new parents… I still think Josh needs a baby daddy shirt though! We also went to Applebee’s for lunch – where they not only do not offer the lunch special on weekends that we all wanted to order, they also didn’t offer what I ordered on Saturdays and so instead of asking what I wanted instead, the waitress handed me a plate of food and literally said to me “We don’t have what you ordered on weekends, this is the closest thing.” Seriously. It was not close. I still love going to see Josh and Sharla and in all honesty we’ll probably end up at Applebees next time we visit – it’s a love/hate relationship and we’re optimists about it. 🙂

Last weekend we drove to Cullowhee for Mikey’s college graduation – yay for Adam and his brother both being done with school!!

Congrats Mikey!

We had a good time, walked around Sylva Saturday afternoon before the graduation and shopped a bit with Adam’s dad and step-mom Diana, and went out to dinner afterwards with the whole family (Adam’s mom, step-dad, grandma, grandma’s husband Wayne, dad, and step-mom – his family is kinda large, but more about that later). Mikey seemed relieved to be done with school finally and seemed to be excited about the camping pack that we got him as a graduation gift. We had to drive home after dinner since we didn’t have a hotel room on Saturday night, and we ended up getting in around 2am. Needless to say we waited to do Mother’s Day until Wednesday when we wouldn’t be tired and grumpy. 🙂

Ohh, I was just handed scrambled eggs and bacon by my wonderful fiance… I’ll be back in a bit! 🙂
