It was a doozy!

It was a doozy!

Thursday afternoon I was standing on the screen porch watching the neighbors film House Hunters, when a loud clap of thunder boomed.  Made me jump.  It had started to sprinkle and that probably kept me and a few other neighbors from being a bit more obvious with our stalking. 😉 I finally went inside and the rain started to pick up.  Then the lightning started.  Matt called me to come upstairs to the “viewing room” to see the show.  I…

Kelly Golf – Round 1

Kelly Golf – Round 1

One of the main reasons Matt and I chose the neighborhood we did was because it was a golf course community.  Matt plays golf a good bit and we knew he would play even more if we lived on a golf course.  The only condition was that he had to get me a set of clubs.  I refused to live on a golf course and not have clubs.  For Christmas Matt gave me a set of golf clubs and some golf…

Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

Wow, I didn’t realize it has been quite so long since my last post.  We have been in the new house for almost a month and so far so good!  We are just waiting on the new sofa to come and then I have to persuade Matt to buy a dining room table.  My craft desk is on the way and then I can start working on that room (which I’m really excited about)! Yesterday Matt was sitting on the…

Keys to the Casa

Keys to the Casa

Well, it’s OFFICIAL!  We have a brand new house! Due to weather concerns, our closing attorney pushed our closing from 10:30 yesterday to 2:30.  While I would have preferred to close a little earlier in the day, this allowed us to sleep in and take our time.  We met the builder and warranty guy at the house at 12:30 to make sure everything on our checklist was complete.  Once the details were finalized, Matt and I headed to lunch before…

Fourth of July Weekend

Fourth of July Weekend

Due to a competition at work, I ended up with July 3rd off as well as the 4th.  Matt and I both decided to also take Monday off so we could have a long weekend at the beach.  As the week started, a tropical storm formed off the coast.  By Wednesday it was headed for the beach but looked like it should pass by late Thursday and be out of our way for the weekend. Thursday morning we woke up…

Flowers! I have flowers!

Flowers! I have flowers!

A few months ago I came across a bag of Gladiolus bulbs at Costco. When I lived in Austin, I used to always buy Gladiolus from the grocery store. The H.E.B would always have bundles for around $10.00. It was a great way to keep fresh flowers in my apartment, so when I saw them at Costco I couldn’t resist myself. When the weather warmed up I planted about 15 under our deck and a few more on the side…

Spring has sprung!

Spring has sprung!

I feel like I only recently discovered the beauty of Peonies!  As it happened, I stumbled upon them while looking for flowers for my wedding bouquet.  Since the flowers included in our package sucked, and buying real flowers while in St. Lucia wasn’t really an option, I opted for fake flowers.  *GASP*  I was lucky to find a website that sold very realistic looking fake flowers and I was able to get a family friend to put them together.  I…

Snow day part deux (365 challenge)

Snow day part deux (365 challenge)

Work has been crazy busy the last week or so and I haven’t had a chance to write about the snowstorm that hit Raleigh last week.  Predictions were 4-8″ and I would say we definitely got 4″ plus a little more. The snow was due to start around lunch on Wed so Matt decided to ride in to work with me and work from the Hunt Library on campus.  It is about 2 blocks from my office and he hadn’t been…

Snow Day – 365 Challenge Week 5

Snow Day – 365 Challenge Week 5

I’m totally cheating and using some of the snow pics from last week for my challenge. 🙂 Last week the news started calling for snow on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning.   I got to work and waited for the flurries to start.  By 4:00 pm there was still no snow in the Triangle.  I waited another half hour and decided to head home anyway.  Matt and I laid on the couch around 5 and I told him it would…
