life lately

it is my intention to one day begin a series of weekly posts about my life... because i'm sure you're all dying to know what i spend every hour of every day doing. *snort* still, it's a good way to record my days and hopefully give you something interesting to read! i had this idea a month ago and have been so busy that i haven't really gotten it off the ground.

so, here's a recap of my life lately...

at the end of march, brandon and i celebrated our one year anniversary. as part of our celebrations, we paid a visit to the moose cafe at the nc triad farmer's market. i tasted apple butter for the very first time and it was delicious!

to continue our anniversary celebrations, we spent an afternoon in boone. i hadn't been back to visit since i moved away last july and it was really nice to visit some of my favorite places! we made a stop at the mast general store in valle crucis and loaded up on some old fashioned candy.

my family decorates gravestones for easter, so on good friday i paid a visit to a local nursery with my mom, brother, and grandfather. i was surprised to find these cool, moveable tables that the flowers were on. if you needed to walk down an aisle, you cranked a little handle to slide the tables to the left or right. so clever!

i enjoyed a bowling outing with dianna and her co-workers. bowling wouldn't have been complete without a pomegranate margarita!

i had my bridal portraits taken week before last and while i posted about making my own bouquet, i didn't share this funny "before" shot. mom and i decided to do my hair ourselves. we used lots of curlers & clips and LOTS of hairspray!

as a member of the melting pot's club fondue, i received an email about stopping by for a free cheese fondue in honor of national cheese fondue day. brandon and i were more than happy to take them up on the offer.

while shopping at a shoe warehouse near my apartment, i found these ridiculous santa claus flats. if they hadn't been nearly $50 i would have snatched them up for future tacky christmas parties!

brandon and i have been enjoying playing tennis together on mornings when we don't have to work. we've progressed to being able to play an actual match, but i wouldn't consider us pros by any stretch of the imagination.

this sweet gal is getting married a week a half before me! i enjoyed attending her wedding shower, thrown by the groom's mother.

a dinner at chili's ended with this. 'nuff said.

i don't have photos about my life right now because it's being spent working on final papers for school. speaking of, i'd probably get back to that!
