Monday Brain Dump

Happy Monday, Y'all!

I feel like I have a million things in my head lately and am constantly forgetting things.  I have an ongoing list on my desk at work of things I need to do, shopping lists, etc. that is at least keeping me sane!  So, this post is going to be a hodge podge of what is going on in our lives lately...


  • Can anyone else not believe that it is almost JUNE?! I feel like this year is flying by...next month is our one year anniversary!  I feel like it was just yesterday that we were planning everything out and now it's  almost been one whole year!!
  • I got a new iPhone last weekend, so it's strange to open up my photos and only see 33 pictures, when my old iPhone was always at 2,000+ pictures.  But don't worry, I downloaded the app Dropbox and it automatically uploads all of my pictures so I have access to them from my laptop, desktop, and iPhone.  {I had too many pictures to use the Cloud without having to pay for it!}
  • For Mother's Day last week, we went over to Tom's parents' house and cooked breakfast for them.  Elli absolutely adores their dog, Simba, and they used to play and wrestle with each other when they were younger.  Now, they nap.
    Aren't they so sweet?!
  • For Mother's Day for Tom's mom, we gave her this wine.  I thought it was absolutely hysterical when we saw it in the store!

  • We are loving this warm weather that has finally settled itself here in Eastern Virginia!  Although it is raining today, we have had some fantastic days that we can leave our porch door open and Elli has enjoyed being able to lay out there and people watch {and occasionally bark at people}.

  • They have really started to make some progress with our townhome.  We get so excited to walk by it in the evenings and see what all they have done on it!  I guess that is a huge advantage to buying in the same neighborhood that we already live in!

  • The sunset was absolutely breathtaking on our walk the other night.  This is not the best picture, but the colors were magnificent!

  • Tom laughs at me everytime I want to buy Elli a new toy.  I'll admit, she does have a ton of toys, but she treats each and every one like a baby and will pick out one toy and that is the only one she wants to play with for the day.  Yesterday, it was a reindeer stuffed animal {Clarice from Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer} that she got for Christmas that she would not put down and was cuddling it.

  • I have been a reading machine lately!  I read the entire Hunger Games series, the new Women's Murder Club book {12th of Never}, and the last-ever Sookie Stackhouse book {Dead Ever After}.  I can honestly say that all of these books were fantastic!  I could not put any of the Hunger Games books down--I could not find a decent stopping point in any of them.  It got to the point where I had to stop mid-chapter because each chapter would end with a cliff hanger and then I would dream all night about what would happen next!!  The newest Women's Murder Club book was so good!  If you have read the series, you will not be disappointed in the book!  Now for Dead Ever After, I will tell you that it didn't end how I had originally wanted it to end.  I mean, I have read the entire series and kind-of built it up in my head how I wanted the series to end and who I wanted Sookie to end up with.  But, I am very happy with how it ended.  Loose ends were tied up and I feel very satisfied with how it ended.  Don't you hate when books leave you going "What in the world?!"--this one definitely does not!!
Well, I think that is enough babble for one post!  I hope that y'all had a fantastic weekend and that your weeks are off to a great start!
