Newlybird Surprise Party!

When Chad and I arrived at my parent's house for what was supposed to be a quiet spaghetti dinner, we instead found all of our closest friends and family there to surprise us with a newlywed party! They had been decorating for 24 hours and had been planning since the day after our wedding! Needless to say, it was an amazing surprise and a super fun weekend!

Climbing Mt. Yonah = Scrappy!

Went hiking this past weekend for the first time since girl scouts. Things I learned for next time:

Wear hiking boots instead of Vans.

Figure out a way down BEFORE you climb a huge boulder.

Don't wear a Cartersville T-shirt if you want to hide in the woods.

Eat ALL your sandwiches before the ladybugs do.

Chad is officially a beer snob! After three years, he's finally reached the 125 mark (bachelor status) on his Taco Mac beer passport. And what will he get for such an amazing accomplishment? A T-shirt, an engraved nameplate and, of course, a 20 oz. glass for every draft he orders until the end of time. Yep, that's four free ounces of beer and he's pretty excited about it. I'll just stick with my Bud Light.

and the gators win.

My love of cake decorating shows finally came to life yesterday during the Florida-Georgia football game. Being married to a GA fan isn't always easy, but we try to make it fun!
I decided to put my never-used-cake-decorating-tools to work and bake a Gator Cake - so I could rub it in Chad's face when we won (haha). The joke was on me when my cake just didn't turn out as perfect as I thought it would (they make it seem so easy on TV)! But it turned out delicious and even the GA fans ended up stuffing their face with yummy Gator Cake!!
