What A Week......

This week has been crazy. I feel like this week was 100,000,000,000,000 days long. We have been completely all over the place and all plans we had made were changed and doubled. It was insane, and this weekend started earlier but we will save that for another post but just FYI... its not any slower but much more exciting ( Amazing Friend is getting married and weddings make me smile )

I am the biggest FREAK when it comes to Disney movies ( in particular the princess ones but I have a weakness for them all) So when Lion King came out in 3-D it was no question that we were going to see it!! AND LET ME TELL YOU... SO FREAKING WORTH IT! I can't wait to buy it on DVD but I will be disappointed it wont be in 3-D. Here's a look at my hubs all prepared and decked out for the movie!!!

Then on Sunday I had a pretty adventurous day. One of my amazing friends Laura finally got a job. She had set her mission of "get back to Raleigh asap" after having to move home after graduation and when she landed this job she was so excited. So Sunday after church we went out to "window shop" which us shopping together is disaster... but some how we ended up at the flea market and there was a very interesting event going on...

The picture is small yes I know but it was as close as we can get. All I have to say was we were so confused as what was going on but everyone looked like they enjoyed it.. here are some key words... Hispanic mickey and Minnie, limos, mariachi bands, tacos everywhere and kids running around in a bull pen with bulls in cages... kinda scary but everyone was acting like it was NO BIG DEAL?!?!?!

Then I made our new meal for the week. Andrew and I are foodies so we have to make new dishes so we don't just decide to go out to eat. This week I made a recipe off a blog I follow Christian Wife Life. She is a lover of all things Pioneer Woman and this Cajun Chicken Pasta is off the site. Let me tell you she said it feeds for days and it does... 3 days in the Tucker House. Def a most cook again but only on the weekends because of prep. See our outcome below

Finally the week sped by but it was  a nice surprise to see a good friend of ours Thursday. Andrews best friend Seth moved to GA after getting married ( he moved to OH after graduation and met his lovely wife Sara) and this is the first time we had seen him since. Sad we had to watch a wolfpack loss but we can wait to make our first trip to GA at the end of October to see their new house and meet their dog wookie.....

Eventually... Hopefully we will slow down( I know andrews praying for it ) but until them it is just go go go at the Tucker House

Thankful Thursday

Thursday holds a special day in most peoples heart since it is the day before FRIDAY!

I was on facebook ( addicted) and I saw my status for this time last year

But this Thursday I am especially greatful for

My Husband.... He is my rock and I know God sent him to me to handle my craziness and keep me grounded.

( Picture of him showing his goofy side at the wedding :))

The ability to choose where you worship.
Andrew and I have been searching for a church and found one we enjoyed very much last weekend. We are going to keep going and find out what we can get involved in.

Thankful for our jobs. We are at a place in our lives where we are both where we want to be to make an amazing future. But with our jobs comes ..

We love our lazy weekends and with a busy end of the year coming up ( Weddings, out of town trips and the holidays) we are looking forward to doing alot of this...

(Blurry but this was us last weekend watching movies on the couch all day sunday ...aka perfect)

3 day of bliss

I can tell you one thing... 3 day weekends were made with a teacher in mind.  With the hurricane last weekend, all our kids stuck inside over the weekend the kids had so much more energy this week and Labor Day weekend couldn't have come sooner.

This weekend Andrew and I spent the weekend in Charleston. It was very relaxing and a much needed get away with my family and full of things that are wonderful and so full of southern comfort :)

However our weekend didn't start off as stress free as planned.. first we saw traffic as far aw we could see and that didn't make for a very happy husband... he was ready to turn around at any moment

On Saturday we went to the beach with my Best Friend Holly and her boyfriend Jake. I was so glad to see Holly again especially since I haven't seen her since our wedding, and around that time I was starting to loose it...

Then we went back to my Grandmas and ate dinner, there is something about the way your grandma cooks food that is amazing ( I am sure it has something to do with all the lard they use to cook with but every once in a while it wont kill you). Hopefully one day I will be able to cook just as well but I feel like you really need the grandma title and since that wont be me for a while I guess my mom will be next in line.. 

No trip to Grandmas is complete without some fishing my dad didn't even last a full hour Friday before he was out on the boat but we got there so late Andrew didn't get a chance to fish till Saturday. My dad didn't catch anything but Andrew caught a Bass and was so excited :) I actually got a few pictures with him smiling showing teeth!!!

Sunday came and it was GIRLS DAY!!!! Andrew and my dad went and ran some errands to get ready for our cook out and then finished the day with some more fishing but us girls did what we did best... SHOPPED ALL DAY...Then when we finally wore out all the stores we headed back for dinner and then made some home made boiled peanuts... I will have to say that is the biggest thing I miss about living in Charleston is that you can buy them anywhere, anytime and in NC they are almost no where to be found... luckily I ate enough to last me a while this weekend..

Finally Monday came and it was time for us to come home... As you can see we had a very exciting weekend and just like Bently we are pooped and ready to be home and sleep in our own bed..
