Early Birthday

It's been a busy, yet fun weekend. Both Jonathan and my parents came into town on Friday night to celebrate my birthday a little early. We went to a new restaurant called The Chop House and then went back to our house for some yummy cake! J's parents spent the weekend with us and it was so great to hang out with them. This spring has proven to be very busy for J and I, with something every weekend. The next two weekends we will be out of town for weddings, and in the midst of that, we will be trying to move. Not sure how it's all going to come together, but I know that the good Lord will help us with the transition. I have already been collecting boxes from work to use for the move. I will probably start packing up some of the house this week. It will be sad leaving this house where we started our married life together. We've loved it here. It's the perfect size and I don't have any complaints. We hate to move, but because I plan on going back to school to get my masters at USC, we have to get back to SC so that I can receive in-state tuition. In the long run, it will be worth it, but it's just hard right now because we have so much going on and trying to move at the same time. Mama is coming up on Thursday to help me pack up some and from there we will ride together to Greenville for Hanna's wedding weekend. I am very excited about the fun weekend ahead of us!

On another note, J already gave me my bday gifts...he can't keep things a secret for long...he gets too excited. So, he wanted to go ahead and give me my presents early. He did WAY too much! I got a Garmin (because I always steal his from his car), a new pair of awesome tennis shoes, and a shewing basket and sewing materials. J's mom gave me her sewing machine and for the past few months, i've been talking about how I want to learn how to sew. I was very surprised by all the gifts and love how thoughtful my awesome husband is. He must get it from his mom because she gave me a box full of new clothes this weekend. I am so thankful for such an awesome new family that I have become a part of since J and I got married!

A Weekend at the Masters

Jonathan and I spent this past weekend at Augusta National. It was nothing short of amazing. Everything about the course and the Masters was way more than i ever expected. The scenery is beyond beautiful and seeing all the pro golfers up close was very cool. When we were watching replays on TV on Sunday night, I kept saying to J, "I can't believe we only live 5 miles from there." You feel like you step into a different world. You def don't feel like you are in Augusta. I am so thankful that we were able to go this year and experience the Masters while living in Augusta.
Ansley gave us the badges and so it was great to hang out with her for two days. I can't thank her enough for asking us to go both Sat. and Sun. On Saturday we met up with Catie and Will and a few other friends, and then on Sunday we hung out with Ansley and some her of friends for half the day before we started on our trek around the course. We decided to follow our fav, Phil. He was paired up with Tiger Woods, so of course the crowds following them were ridiculous. Despite the crowds we were still able to get pretty close on certain holes. We were hoping that Phil would come back and win the Masters, but with a few mistakes on his part, it didn't happen. I am not too excited about Angel Cabrera winning, but oh well. I'm just glad Tiger didn't win.
Overall, it was an awesome, yet tiring weekend. All that walking wore us out.
