Scenes from the Weekend {Blowing Rock}

We spent the weekend with my family in the mountains near Blowing Rock.  We had snow flurries on the way up Thursday, but by Saturday night we were sitting on the porch outside!  The big boys snowboarded, and even though it had been two years, they didn't skip a beat.  It comes so easy for them.
The little boys both skied.  Hampton needed help the first part of the day, but was navigating the conveyor and slope alone by the afternoon.  He was even threw up his ski pole to wave to us so there's that.
 Y'all.  Have you ever seen a two year old on skis?  This kid.  My sweet brother was so patient with him the first part of the day because he was "slight meltdown" at the top of the mountain and "I do it again"at the bottom of the mountain.  After a good nap, we came back for the afternoon and he had an absolute ball!
Saturday we headed to Valle Crucis to visit Mast General Store.   Papa and the boys were in heaven.  Hampton woke up not feeling well Saturday and we knew something was wrong when giant barrels of candy could not coax him out of his daddy's arms.
The weekend ended with a steak dinner and Hampton feeling puny.  Turns out he has the flu so we are praying that no one else gets to share in that yuckiness!  Until next time...

all the things {currently}

{READING}
Picked this up at the Goodwill because the title intrigued me.  I typically don't read fiction and, not gonna lie,  it's slow going.

{WATCHING}
I started watching after a friend told me about this show.  I roped Lee in and we finished in a week or two.  Only one season on Netflix so far, so not a binge-watchers dream, but I also didn't feel like my life went down the tubes.  



{LISTENING} Click on "Listening" to hear my new favorite worship song. 






{TRYING} 

I love painted nails...especially gel.   But let's be honest.  I'm not Beyonce and keeping that up cuts into my goodwill money.

Life back in 2016

Where the actual heck have I been?  Not blogging.  
December came and was a beautiful blur, but I don't want it to pass without documenting in some small way.  We went tree hunting, ran a full {Lee} and half {me} marathon in Kiawah, celebrated with family, and waited on Santa.  I picked out my favorite pictures...


















I don't mention it here often, but I am a member of the Junior League of Columbia.  I am so proud of the work the league does and have watched it grow and change over the past 10 years.  If you know me in real life, you know I spend a lot of time volunteering for the league and trying to help carry out our mission.  I've been asked to step into leadership and will serve as the President-Elect next year.  Along with that "job" is the chance to learn and represent our league at several conferences over the next few years.  This is my friend Mandy who will serve as President next year, and one of my favorite people.  Basically, she's Batman and I'm Robin...minus the weird tights.



So if you made it this far,  I'm doing the slow clap for you right now.
