I just called Publix and ordered a cake for a shower at work tomorrow. Is it really so strange that I want a cake that is half wedding shower and half baby shower?? Come on people, we are in Georgia. I know that this was not the first time this was requested...

{I would like to add that one guy at work is having a baby and there are 3 people getting married, this is not all for the SAME person}

Poochie, Cris and Chad

Last night 3/4's of the Hunt family met in Athens to celebrate Momma and Cris' birthdays. We all know how much I love that town so I was game for a trip. We ate the most delicious meal at DePalma's, the food and company was wonderful!

Happy 49 {wink, wink} to Momma and 25th Cris!

{I want to live and work at Google}

Google never ceases to amaze me.

Did you know that you can text google (466453) two locations and it will text you back directions?! Who needs GPS? And best of all, it is a free text. Try it out!

1. The number you are texting is 466453
2. Enter the two address with to separating them: 123 Main Street Braselton, ga 30517 to 123 Peachtree St Atlanta, GA 30309
3. Watch in amazement as directions come to you via text messages (it took 3 different texts to get all of the directions when I tested)

Me and my bitchin' civic don't need no stinkin' fancy pants gps. We have a cell phone!

We got a new TV last weekend. HH Gregg is a great store, we love it. Chad loves to barter...We got a 42 inch LG flat screen for less than $600. They were having a sale on them, I think 3 other people were in there buying this TV when we were...

Chad has been dying to hang it on the wall above the bathroom doors {I couldn't see the TV where it was because of the posts at the foot of the bed, so I didn't argue} so today Chad, his dad and his uncle hung it. It looks so good!

My old view...
My view now, it is amazing! {and I L-O-V-E Wedding Crashers}
I have to say, I really do like it. I was really worried it would be too big. 42 inches is HUGE. I think I will live in my bed now, it is so comfortable and I have a great view!

{Date night!}

We are having a wonderful staycation! We started the day with breakfast from Starbucks {thanks Rich...} and then in the early afternoon we headed down to Atlanta. We went window shopping at Lenox and got each other our Valentines Day gifts, I got Chanel No. 5 Eau Premier and Chad got an Art of Shaving grooming kit. Chad says he is off better not buying flowers this year, I say I did too {I LOVE this perfume, I feel pretty when I wear it :)}. He can't stand how much they mark up flowers as the date approaches February 14th...

We went over to Atlantic Station, had a cocktail at The Grape and then went to the Bodies exhibit. To say that this was unorganized is such an understatement, it was mayhem! We had purchased tickets online for 5:00 and were told by 3 different people that that just meant that we didn't have to stand in the ticket line. So...we waited 45 minutes outside, in the SNOW. Yes, it was snowing just in time for us to stand outside...Well, when we got to the front of the line the ticket girl let someone in with us from Will Call! Oh, hell no! We called her out on it and she had the nerve to tell us that it wasn't her that told us that, no apology, nothing. I think Chad will be writing a strongly worded letter, we just have to figure out where to send it :)

The exhibit was really cool! My favorite part was the area that had the different stages and sizes of fetal development. It was so interesting and not gross at all, I know Chad could handle but I am not used to that!

We rounded out the wonderful day with dinner at Dolce. YUM! Wonderful ambiance, Cesar salad and lobster ravioli! It was a wonderful staycation,  we will need to have another one soon!

{Staycation 2009}

Chad and I are having a staycation this weekend. Our Biloxi trip didn't work out and we had already taken the time off of work so we are hanging out and relaxing. Tomorrow we are going to see the Bodies exhibit and out to dinner in Atlanta {I did put a lot of thought into the time frame, should I see the dead bodies before or after dinner???} I am stressing out about where to eat, we ever make it down to the city for fun, I don't want to choose wrong! 

It is SO cold {but not as cold as it was in Chicago, let me tell you that my Old Navy coat was NOT made for -2 degrees...} so tonight we hope to build a big fire and snuggle with Charlotte.

Happy weekend!

This whole working 40+ hours a week has really taken its toll...I was exhausted last week! We have been spending our time relaxing and hanging out with each other all weekend, not much else has been accomplished. I did keep the nursery this morning at church- 5 one year olds will not help the exhaustion!

It has finally gotten cold in the ATL, its nice to actually wear a coat! I am headed to Chicago this week for work where the HIGH will be 13, awesome. I don't think my Old Navy coat will keep me warm, I will have to run from place to place...

{We're gonna party like its 2009!}

The party was a success! It was a ton of work but so worth it, everyone had a wonderful time! I think we rang in 2009 and Chad's 30th with a bang!
