Midweek randoms

This week is halfway over, thank goodness. I have been in a training class mon, tues and wed for 8hrs a day on analyzing and presenting data. There were parts I found interesting but analyzing is just not my forte. Luckily our class had good people in it and the instructor was super nice! She knew we were prisoners haha
Tuesday work was doing an ice cream fundraiser during lunch so the boy and I shared one. Hey, it was for a good cause ;) 
Tuesday night we went to Red Leaf for sushi with Ashley, Mike and Jesse boy. I honestly love our friendship with them, I feel very blessed to have such great friends in my life. Anywho we had a super yummy dinner then headed to Walmart. Ash and Jesse were going there so we checked out the toys with them before heading our seperate ways. Jesse was too cute for words while we were there, love that sweet boy. 


Today Dave got his kids for the first time in a few weeks. They were visiting family out of state. At first it was kinda nice to not worry about the kiddos but we definitely missed them. When they saw me they got so excited and told me they missed me. How cute!! 
We went to the pool for a little bit, had dinner then they went back home. 


I am not sure what the rest of the week holds except gym visits and one more training class. Hopefully you all are enjoying your week :)

Riverdogs Game

Saturday afternoon around 5 we headed downtown to the Riverdog stadium. My uncle David was recieving an award for community service/volunteer hours through various outlets for example blood donations and house tours with Historic Charleston foundation. 
I went down where they were so I could take a few pictures. Little did I know they would actually let me down on the field to get good pictures. My aunt Theresa took the pictures and I did a video of the presentation. The Governor of SC was going to present the award but was unable to attend so she sent Senator Thurmond in her place. 

Here is the senator, chaplain who married Theresa and David and then Theresa and David on the right. I must say it was pretty neat to shake hands and meet a Senator. Yes I am aware he is just any other person but still pretty cool. 
Here's some of our group that came to see him get the award. Grammy, aunts, uncle, cousins, Dave and Dana. I was so glad Aunt Susan was able to come! 



I should also mention this was Daves very first baseball game, EVER!! He really enjoyed it and we even got hats which I loved! 
The theme of the night was dissing Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. The tounges out are pictures we took trying to get on the big screen at the game! We had fun taking silly pictures together. 

We had such a good day spent with family!! 
Saturday night I was exhausted and slept better than I have in months. Today Dave and I went shopping at the Tanger outlet and Walmart then spent the rainy afternoon watching movies. I did go workout for an hour while Dave took a nap! Tonight is tv and then sleep! Monday through Wednesday I will be in training classes all day so this week will be rough. My attention span is short and it's for accounting ay ay ay! Pray for me please haha

Family Reunion 2014

Saturday afternoon we had our family reunion with my dads side of the family. It was such a good time and luckily the rain never came. We had the reunion at my dads friends place on the Folly River and the view is beautiful from afar you can see the Morris Island lighthouse. Even though the sun was not out it sure was hot hot hot! But really it's July in SC so what else should we expect? Haha 

Here's the group photo, this group has changed so much over the years. It is nice to still get together with family and enjoy yummy food, AMAZZZZZZING desserts :) and good company. Speaking of the food I probably gained 10lbs this weekend haha kidding, maybe! 


Dave got to come after he left a volunteer event for the Navy ball washing cars to raise money. I was so glad he got to be there and meet some of my family. It is very important to me for him to take interest in my family and everyone to like him. So far it is going well :) 
Me and my nieces took some pretty silly pictures :) only a few are added to le blog! 


Wonderful afternoon and that evening was even more family time having fun! That will be another blog post!

Relaxing weekend

Besides going our friday night this weekend was pretty uneventful. I surprisingly was fine with that probably because it was rainy all weekend. 
Saturday started at the afb gym and had a great workout. Like I said it rained all weekend so after the gym we ran to Target then watched movies all afternoon and he napped. 

He grilled us some yummy bbq chicken for dinner which was SO good. He got to use his new grill we got at Target for $9! Talk about a good deal! 

Sunday also started in the afb gym. I had the best cardio workout! They have spin bikes on the side so I basically got to do a spin class using my previous classes for ideas and I loved it! I sweat like crazy and I got my heartrate up high so I know I burned alot of calories. I gained a few lbs so I am really trying to up my workouts to get that weight off. Thanks to my ankle for the weight gain but it's better so game on! 

We took his dog for a walk and saw this old taxi and I thought it was so cool!! The inside of this car looked like it has never been redone. 

We ended the evening with dinner then TCBY! Next weekend will be busier so it was nice to not do much this weekend!

DIG in the park

Yesterday after work Dave and I met up with a group of people from work for Happy hour. They chose DIG in the park in Park Circle which I had never been to so I was excited to try a new place. Also I knew it would be a fun group and networking with coworkers is always a good thing. You never know when you may need something or vise versa, good relationships are a plus at work. 

We all met up at about 4:30 and the weather was perfect. We all were chatting, ordering drinks and having fun. 


Then the sky turned grey and the bottom dropped. It stormed pretty bad for a good hour at least. We were outside under a covered bar area so we were good but the thunder and lightning were a bit scary at times. 
Once the storm was over the band started and they were so good. I think they go by the name bootless and just fyi they were all in boots haha. 
A couple of people wanted to take a shot and since Dave was my DD I joined them. 
We had such a good time but after 3 hours it was time to go! 
Look how pretty the sky was after the storm, I loved it! 

I definitely enjoyed my time and got to know a few people better and talk to some I had never formally met. I also want to go back there for dinner one evening when the weather is a bit nicer.

Afternoon ride

This afternoon when I was done with the gym I headed to my sisters to ride bikes. I have learned riding bikes burns alot of calories so it is a plus. It was nice to get out get fresh air and excercise a little more with my sis. 
We rode down to sunrise park and then all over her neighborhood. 



By the time we got back to her house we were hot and sweaty! It was time for a shower and to just chill for the evening. 

I think I am going to buy a new bike but we shall see.

That's a wrap

My 4 day weekend has come to a close! I had the best time off of work and really needed that little break. Thankful for a cool boss who let me take thursday off :) 

For the last day of my "vaca" I started it off with a great church service. This one was quite different seeing as it was outside under a huge tent. The sermon was great all about second chances and the music rocked!! The guy they have leading worship has an amazing voice. 


They had a picnic lunch after but Dave and I were not attending so we could make it to the movies at noon. He has wanted to see the new Transformers movie for awhile so we made it happen today. It was good but 2 hrs and 45 mins was just waaaaaay too long for me. 
Dave and I went to Old Navy for their awesome sales for the holiday weekend which we added a military discount to. We got a TON for such a great price! I love finding good sales! The only thing now that I really want more of is dresses for work. 
We ate dinner together and hung out then I headed home. Since I was not active much today I decided to take my Kodie boy for a walk. Only .62 of a mile which wasn't too long but better than nothing. 
Another amazing weekend in the books! I tell ya I love the people in my life. So blessed!!

Bike Ride and a Picnic

Today we were supposed to go out in the boat but unfortunately the weather was not great and it was too windy for us to have enjoyed our time. Luckily though it didn't end up really raining only a bit of a drizzle here and there. Therefore we went out and enjoyed the day. Me, Dave, Shannon and the girls got out our bikes, packed a lunch and headed to the James Island County Park for the afternoon. We had such a great time and even got to enjoy the sprinklers they just redid the water was a bit too cold for me though. It would have been perfect if it was a bit sunnier out and warmer. 




 You can see the storm clouds in these few pictures but like I said it only drizzled, we lucked out!


 Dave and his BFF (what he calls Izzy) they had a lot of fun running through the sprinklers together.
I have not rode bikes in a really long time and today reminded me just how much I love it! I think I will try to make that happen more. It is fun and great exercise my Fitbit estimated that we burned 423 calories which is pretty darn good for an hour. We are having a steak dinner at the house with the fam which I is always a good thing :) I love a good steak!!
