Five on Friday


& the beach is calling my name, so let's make this short and sweet today.

Linking up with April for another edition of Five on Friday.
So my new favorite part of this whole wedding planning shindig?

When the mail arrives or when the UPS guy drives by. There have been so many early wedding presents sent our way and we already have received quite a few reply cards back. It's kind of fun seeing what shows up each day!
Also, um, how is it only 43 days until we get married?!
Patrick is finally moved into our house!

He moved in exactly 1 month to the day after we closed on our house. It still hasn't quite sunk in that we own our own house yet but I'm sure that'll come soon {you know, with that first mortgage payment coming up}. Did y'all catch the redneck moving strategy on snap? If you didn't, it looked a little something like this:

The boys were rewarded with tacos for supper. We've cooked supper in our house exactly three times: two times have been taco nights and two of the times, Chris has been over for dinner. I have a feeling this miiiiight be an indication of things to come.
On Tuesday night, Patrick and I took a break from all things house/wedding/CPA studying related and played hooky for the evening. We drove over to Spririt Communications Park and took in a Fireflies game.

It was your typical mid-June evening {read: afternoon thunderstorm that brought the temperature down to the mid-80s & made the humidity level skyrocket} but it was a much appreciated night out. We bought the $5 cheap seats out in the Bojangles Berm by the bar and thoroughly enjoyed our evening in the ballpark watching the Fireflies play. Because it wasn't super crowded, we were able to bounce around the stadium and check out the view from quite a few locations {including directly behind home plate.
Kiawah, I'm coming for you.

I'm coming for your early morning running weather, for your miles and miles of bike paths, and your perfect beach {+ beach weather!} Be ready.
Happy Father's Day to this guy!

He's put up with me for nearly 28 years now and I'm sure the last year has been the most fun... with me moving back home, getting engaged, planning a wedding, buying a house, and now repainting every single surface in the house.

Cheers to you, dude!

& a happy Father's Day to my future father-in-law, Patrick's dad!

Happy Friday! I hope that everyone has a great weekend & gets outside to enjoy the beautiful weather :)
