Day 5…Six Places paired with Weekend Fun!


August 26, 2011

For today’s “challenge” post, I wanted to include pictures of places…some could answer this in places they want to go, but I feel like we’ve got to have a great deal of adventures already so it’s worth taking a little looksee into the past, just for fun. In no particular order, some of my favorite places:

San Francisco/Napa Valley Trip–May 2009…this was our first trip together as a couple. So much fun–we tasted wine, we ate incredible food, we took in the sights, and visited some of Jeff’s family that lives in California…this is when I knew we had something special.

 New York City–July 2009. Jeff surprised me with a trip to my favorite city for my birthday…staying at the Waldorf, eating at some of the most incredible places in Manhattan, and playing tour guide for him, this was a weekend very much worth remembering!
 Destin, Florida–April 2010…a well deserved vacation. We ventured to Florida with my parents the day after I finished my first 1/2 marathon–talk about a great way to recover from that pain! Perfect weather, perfect company…happiness I tell you!
 Barnsley Gardens, Georgia–October 2010. Deep in the throngs of wedding planning, Jeff decided I needed a break so he planned a fun getaway weekend to this fun resort…couple’s massages, golf time, and just time for the two of us was exactly what we needed.
Home Sweet Home…we’re here day in and day out and there isn’t anyone else I’d rather share it with. I think our house fits our personalities so well and we really enjoy making it “our own”–a happy little place to be!
Scarritt Bennett…the most important day of my life. We “visited” this special place to say our vows in front of our friends and family and make those promises to each other–another place that made all my dreams come true.

We’ve made it to the weekend friends…thank gosh! Work has taken its toll on both Jeff and I this week so I am excited to spend some time with the hubs–he’s had nightly conference activities the past 3 nights so I won’t be all aone anymore–yay!

Tonight, we’re headed to a restaurant I have been eyeing for quite some time…The Yellow Porch Cafe. Everyone says it’s fantastic so I have a feeling it’s going to be a fun treat. Then tomorrow, we’ve got a fun housewarming party for Leslie and Dusty–so excited to see their new place, followed by all sorts of errands we need to run. We’re hoping to drop by Jocelyn’s birthday celebration, too–parties everywhere I tell you!
Sunday’s lineup includes church and then Jeff promised to take me to see The Help…I cannot wait! Hope you all have a great weekend, too 😉
