Like most things in my life, I have high hopes but am not so good at the follow through!!! Hence the last blog from November 2010 (over 7 months ago). So here's a quick run down of some things that have gone down since the last post:
December 2010 was a great month of celebration: Lot's of Christmas parties with friends, co-workers, Brent's co-workers, an ugly sweater party, and the best part...My dad came to visit from Kansas City! This was a surprise trip for him from my step mom for our birthdays (my dad and I share the same birthday)!! I took him to the JWL Christmas party and we celebrated around Rock Hill and in Columbia with my sister!
Brent and I treated ourselves to a long overdue smart phone upgrade for our birthdays! For the holidays we stayed local and rang in the New Year quietly together!
Jan-Mar 2011: I stayed very busy with Community Service commitments to the Junior Welfare League's annual Auction and the Come-See-Me Festival's signature Glencairn Garden Concert Series. Little did I know that when I signed up for these positions in 2009 that the two events would at the same time...ahh! Sprinkle in a few nights of Bunco, Happy hours, lunch dates and Heather's 30th Birthday Bash and it made the time fly by!! P.S. I got a new (to me) car in March too!!! Oh and did I mention I through my little sister's bachelorette party in March too (along with helping plan a lot of her destination wedding)!!!
April 2011: Hello Community Involvement!! It was all worth it with another great JeWeL of the Carolinas Fundraiser and a great turn-out to the CSM concerts in April. I also hosted a shower for my sis in Columbia (and didn't take a single picture of the food which were all desserts- yum!)!!
May 2011: My little sister got MARRIED!!!!! I think in my mind she will always be 16 since that is how old she was when I left home but she is all grown up now and she is MARRIED!!! The wedding was on the beautiful Daufuskie Island, SC. It was a very romantic idea, the island is only accessible by ferry, and the house we stayed in was a gorgeous one right on the beach! My sister looked so pretty and it was a great laid back beach wedding atmosphere! The logistics were not so easy going with all the STUFF that had to get transported to the island, all the cooking, all the decorating, etc but it was still such a good time! I'd love to go back there on a regular vacation sometime and get to enjoy the island even more!!
May also hosted some other fun outings including bunco, some charity auctions, the JWL spring dinner, and Memorial Day weekend on the Lake. Did I mention we finally agreed on a name for our pontoon.....BRUISER!!!! Bruiser (the Riviera Cruiser) seemed appropriate for our older pontoon that we put a giant scratch in the first day we got it!!
June 2011: Lots more celebrating with Tara's 30th Birthday party, another Longhorn wedding, Girl's nights and we started going to Trivia on Monday Nights!! However the highlight to June was definitely my trip to Atlanta with my Wahoo's (6 out of 8 of us went) to see NKOTBSB!!! For those of you are aren't lucky enough to know about this acronym....it's the joint tour of New Kids on the Block and the BackStreet Boys!!! We had such an awesome time in the ATL, at the concert, and touring a few sites the next day. We ended the trip back at Maria's house in Greenville with one of our infamous take-out orders from a Chinese Restaurant!!
Ok....that's a quick recap of the last 7 months.....hopefully I'll be a better blogger going forward!!!
