Thoughts for Thursday

Happy Thursday Lovies!

I'm annoyed to report that I'm still coughing myself crazy! I saw my allergy and asthma doctor this past week where I had two breathing treatments and sent home with two steroid inhalers. They wanted to send me home with predisone but I seriously begged my doctor not to. That medicine makes me seriously cray cray. Prayers please that this crap goes away. I would really like to enjoy the nice weather around here.

I did feel up to going to our neighbor's first birthday party. He was a preemie but boy has he grown. His Mom did a super cute job of decorating! The weather was fabulous! I sat outside and watched the Hubs play corn hole and soaked up some sun. Literally this is the only thing I did ALL weekend. Please excuse the iphone pictures but I had to share!

 Look at this sweet little face! He was pleased with his smash cake!

I think he approves!

I hope everyone is having a good week. I hope to one day be back to my normal blogging self!

Weekend Recap.. Mom's birthday

Happy Tuesday Lovies! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

These days are flying by and I haven't felt like doing much of anything. Sorry for the lack of blog posting but I've been doing good to make it to work. Some days I haven't even been doing that. Thank goodness for laptops and the ability to work from home! I'm so over this cold/sinus/allergy crap. I'm in the middle of my antibiotics but still not done. I hope to be over this crap ASAP!

This weekend my Hubs was at the beach with the boys. They always go to play corn hole, cookout and watch the ACC tournament. Friday night I had dinner for one my bestie's birthday! Sadly we don't have one single picture to share. We had a yummy dinner at Kanki. Saturday I did absolutely nothing. I went to bed on Friday night around 9:30 and didn't get up until 9:30 the next morning. Sunday was another lazy day. I did manage to get the strength to make a box (nothing from scratch this time) cake for my Mom. I had planned a little surprise dinner a few weeks prior.

 Box Pig Pickin Cake I made for her.

 Mom opening up her present from my Dad and us. I'm not going to lie.. I'm jealous of her gift. We got her this beauty. She was very excited!

My aunts and my Mom (she's in the blue coat).

Sadly these are the only pictures I took. I wasn't feeling myself and just didn't think about it really. These were snapped while we were waiting to be seated for dinner. Tomorrow is my Mom's actual birthday.. I hope she has a wonderful 60th birthday! You make 60 look fabulous! Love you to the moon and back!

Thoughts for Thursday- Girls Weekend in Boone!

Happy Thursday Lovies!

Time is completely slipping away from me these days. I'm soo ready for Spring it's not even funny! We're supposed to get some ice/freezing rain AGAIN tonight! Between this weather, crazy work because of the weather, and life I've been neglecting this little blog of mine. I hope to be back to normal soon. This weekend I was able to get away for a girls weekend.. it was glorious!

We headed to Boone on Friday despite still having some wintry weather here. We called and Boone was all clear! I was in shock that Boone was actually 10 degrees warmer than Raleigh. We stopped at Casa Rustica for dinner on the way in. We were all starving so it definitely hit the spot!

Sorry for the blurred iphone picture but it's all we had. 

Saturday we got up and got our nails and toes done. I love a good manicure/pedicure! We had hoped to stop by a little brunch place but they were closed :(. We did stop at Six Pence Pub for lunch. It was amazing! We were kinda expecting just bar food but it was delicious! We shopped the shops at downtown Blowing Rock before hitting the outlets! After an all day shopping experience we stopped at  The Local for dinner. Their fried plantains and mac and cheese were amazing! Everyone raved about their food. 

Sunday we were a little nervous on when to head home because Raleigh had another ice episode. It was 40 degrees and sunny in Boone. CRAZY! I snapped this picture from our balcony. So pretty! We ended up leaving around 10am. The weather was beautiful until we hit Greensboro. It rained the rest of the way home. Oh well, we made is safely.

I can't believe this week is almost over and we're headed for another weekend. Time please slow down! And this ice/freezing rain crap they are calling for tonight.. weatherman please be WRONG!

Have a good Thursday!
