My poor, poor car...

So, we are only in Birmingham for 13 weeks and my poor car has had it rough. Back in January I was driving down the interstate when a metal bar flew up and cracked my windshield. Then, this past Sunday night someone backed into my car and didn't leave a note. Luckily it was done in the parking lot of our townhome, so we found the person who hit my car. Unfortunately he is in Canada until Friday and we leave Birmingham on Friday. The timing is just perfect, isn't it. Here are some pictures of my poor, beat up car.

March Madness

March has been a crazy month for us. We have been gone every weekend, and I finally started to work! I kept a 2 month old boy for the month of March. His name is Tucker and I miss him already!
Our weekend travels began with a trip to Augusta for a prep class Christopher had for his boards exam. It was so great to see all of his classmates and my old co-workers. I was also able to meet up with Natalie Muchnick for lunch at our favorie place, Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant. Saturday night we had an engagement party for Alex and Jess who will be getting married in October of this year.

The following weekend we attempted to go backing in the N. GA mountains but the cold weather and rain cut our trip short. We got to Dahlonega late Friday night and slept in our cars. Saturday morning we woke up and were absolutely freezing and the rain was only getting worse so we decided to all eat breakfast together and then call it a weekend. So, Chris and I called his parents and we ended up spending the rest of the weekend with them. Chris helped with the demolition of their kitchen... enjoy the pictures!

The third weekend we went to Destin to see my parents. We took Justin and Adriane with us for a nice long weekend. The weather was absolutely perfect! It was Alabama's spring break, so Amanda, her boyfriend Justin, and their friend Mary Kate were there as well. We spent a lot of time at the beach and ate some GREAT seafood. Pictures will come soon!

Well, to close this long post, I wanted to let you all know that tonight is our last night in Birmingham. We leave for Douglasville tomorrow and then early Saturday morning we will begin our drive up to Washington DC. We are really excited about this next phase and can't wait to keep you posted on Chris' job searching! Thanks for reading!



It's March 1st and we woke up to SNOW in Alabama!! We knew there was a possibility of snow, but we honestly didn't think there would be enough to stick because that just doesn't happen in the south. We were wrong. I woke up this morning and looked out the window and much to my surprise there was a beautiful layer of white, fluffy snow. Chris and I got up and ate breakfast and enjoyed watching the snow fall, then we got ready for Sunday school. (yes, we skipped the church service...) On our way to church the snow began to fall pretty heavily and it was absolutely beautiful. I took a few pictures along our drive. When we got there, there was only one other couple in our small group that showed up (besides the teachers) so we all decided to go to IHOP. Chris and I had already eaten breakfast but who can pass up a SECOND breakfast at IHOP??? Not us! I wanted so badly to get a picture of Chris and I in the snow, but by the time we left breakfast the snow was already melted. Though there is no picture of the two of us, we did enjoy the snow. It makes you feel like a kid again. Enjoy the pictures!!
