See Ya April...

Geez...April? Was that you? Until next year.... 

Ya'll seriously I die every time I see this and then it's stuck in my head.... FOR DAYS!

I"m actually looking forward to May! Summer is officially on its way and we are movin' right along with the house. My friend Hill is having a house warming next weekend, my friend HK may be coming in from NY to go with me AND My bestie Heather is coming up from the beach as well. Can we say: GIRL time! We also have a fabulous mini vacay to Charleston at the end of the month (King Street here I come...sorry wallet and hubby) We are staying at the Francis Marion on King and I am so excited. I mean, just look st how cute this place is:


We all remember the notebook Charleston scene right??


I haven't been in a few years and I'm really looking forward to trying new restaurants around the area! Also, did anyone else indulge in Southern Charm on Bravo? Seriously, I have a problem with reality TV....I joke and say oh my gosh this will be terrible, how can they have this, etc. etc. then before you know it I'm canceling plans to run home to the couch and watch it live versus stocking up on DVR time. Ha! This was no different- I loved it! (Not going to lie) I loved watching their drama and seeing all the Charleston area places, etc. I'm hoping to run into them....by total accident...cough cough....or at least visit J.D's restaurant! (haha stalker)


The Hubby hasn't been and it is very RARE that I convince him to take a vacay whether it be short or long so this will be good for us (it may or may not be our last us time before discussing family planning..mmmhmm...) Afterwards, we are leaving Charleston and heading down to Amelia Island, Florida for one of my fellow Hollins gals' wedding! It will be so nice to see everyone and celebrate with the future Mrs. Gibbs! Then when are driving the long haul back to VA (but luckily I have that Monday off...whew)

SOPHOMORE YEAR! HA!
Overall I'm really looking forward to kicking off May and keeping you all posted on our house updates! It's hard to save the pictures until Monday's Recap because we seem to get something done almost every day! Thanks for sticking around and following along- Have a great day!

Ok Ok here's a quick preview of yesterday's finished project: No more old yucky yellow paste! New Backsplash up! (just needs grout)

Honey's phone gives off a weird yellow filter...and the stove isn't blue....just protective coating thingy! haha
