A Folly Sunset

Totally not sunset related but mom told me how to make French toast. Sunday morning I tried it, we loved it, new obsession! Give me all the carbs.

Sunday we didn't do much during the day because Dave was studying and doing practice tests for a big test he had on Tuesday. I believe he did well which is huge for our future. Any who later in the afternoon we headed to my parents house to hang out for a bit then we went with my sister and nieces down to Folly to see the sunset.
 There were hearts spray painted all over the street on the walk down from where we parked to the lighthouse. It was really cool.
Enjoy the pics they really don't need captions.


 Ok I just have to say this picture cracks me UP! I am jumping and she is dabbing, she is a mess!

Dave and I stopped by Bohemian Bull on the way home, he pretty much forced me lol he loves that breakfast burger!
Definitely a great afternoon/evening!

Day trip to Myrtle

Saturday morning I got up early and headed to JI to head to Myrtle Beach with mom, dad, and bubs for the day.
Just a cute Teddy picture from Friday 
 Bubs and I on the way up there, he did so good. He made lots of noises and loved looking around.

 We dropped him off with my sister at their hotel right on the beach. Even though it was a quick thing I still loved getting to see the beach. It was right near where we stayed for our mini honeymoon which was cool. The pier where we stayed though was destroyed by Hurricane Matthew.

 Here you can see the pier, it wasn't that short back in June.

 We went to the Tanger and did some major shopping. I got a ton of great deals but my best one was 2 pairs of shoes for the kids and only spent $40! Aesics are great shoes and getting them that cheap was awesome. They are a size or 2 up from their current sizes so even though they may not be able to wear them now it was still worth buying. I will have them try them on Wednesday because you never know they might can wear them now. I got clothes for all 4 of us as well so I definitely am glad we went for all the sales.

 We grabbed some lunch at Drunken Jacks in Murrels Inlet on the way home and I loved the view. I wish it had been sunny but it was still nice to chit chat with mom and dad, eat yummy food and have a view. I told Dave I definitely want to come back to this area and try one of the other restaurants too.  

 Pirate photo op! A nice lady even offered to take one of both of us so of course I said yes.
Me and daddy before we headed back.

The drunk pirate on the sign with the rum was just awesome!

 I really enjoyed the quality time with mom and dad because it is rare these days to spend that kind of time with just them. We had a really good time or at least I know I did. It was the perfect first day of a really great long weekend.

Valentines & a bike Ride

Tuesday was Valentines day and our first one married so I thought that was cool. I know a lot of people think Valentines day is a dumb holiday and that you should celebrate your loved ones all year long and I totally agree you should "celebrate" all year long. I do however think Valentines is just fun and I love to see everyone celebrating the ones they love in whatever way they choose to do so.
Valentines day is also my Mamas birthday, she would have been 90 this year! Happy Birthday in heaven, we miss you and love you tons!! 
 Tuesday morning I had an hour long training and while I was gone Dave left these on my desk. So pretty, I absolutely love flowers and he knows this. I sure was blessed with a good man. We have our short comings for sure but we do compliment each other quite well! :)
  We decided now that we have a grill it was the perfect night to finally grill some steaks and they were amazing! I put some Worcestershire sauce with a wild tree ranch steak seasoning on them a few hours before we cooked them and the flavor was really good. We accompanied the steak with homemade mashed potatoes and some corn, very yummy dinner.

 Wednesday we got the kids as usual and it was such a nice day we went for a bike ride while Dave waited for our dinner to arrive (pizza).
Have I mentioned my eating has not been as great lately lol I haven't gained any weight though thank God! I will get back to it soon I am sure but I just got sick of tuna and veggies or chicken and veggies.

 The sun setting was seriously SO pretty behind the trees, the pictures do not do it justice at all.

We went a little further than usual because they said they had the energy, we found HUGE pinecones, we learned that the land we were riding next to used to be rice fields, one of us took a spill and we had some fun together!
Perfect end to not the best day but God is faithful and we trust in Him to make things better and He did.
