My very first Duke game!


A dream came true in November 2014.  I finally got to go to a Duke basketball game!!  Words cannot express to you the level of excitement that I had.  As I've grown older, the way I handle my excitement and happiness has turned into me crying.  Jon is having a hard time with my coping mechanism now, but he's just going to have to deal with it.  I cry happy tears!!!  

Here is us on our way to our seats (yes, I took pictures of the hallways!)...


And here it is in all of its glory...


So, so happy!  And yes, we're sitting three rows from the top....and yes, this was an exhibition game.....and yes, before the game started, I looked at Jon and said, do you think Coach K will be here or do you think he'll let an assistant coach do his job today?!  Hahaha!!  The things that came out of my mouth this day were ridiculous!!


Oh, and please notice that Jon is wearing blue---granted it is his silly Duck Dynasty shirt, but it's not a Tarheel blue!!  Whoo hoo!!

Here are some pictures from the game...





Once the game was over, we went down on the court to take some pictures...




This is me sitting in Coach K's seat.  I had to politely ask a group of guy's to get out of my way because I needed to sit there and share some butt sweat with the one and only!  Hahaha!!


We had an AMAZING day and I'm so thankful to Jon for getting us tickets to go!

If you ever get the chance to go to a Duke game, GO!

I am still a Tennessee girl,

The Day We Said Moooooooo!!

My sister came to visit last July and we had a fun time!

While she was here, it was dress like a cow and get a free meal at Chic-fil-A day.  The funny thing is, we weren't even hungry when we went to get our free meal.  We had already eaten a late lunch that day and we decided on a whim to dress up like cows and go get some free food....or really just some lemonade and lunch for the next day.

We printed off the cow masks from Chick-fil-A's website and then added our own flair to them.  We decided to go with being black cows with white spots.

Check out our photo shoot below...









The best part about the whole trip was that we went through the drive thru.  We didn't even go inside!  All we did was drive up, said "moo!", and got some free food!  We love CFA!

The next day we went to Carolina Beach and had some of the best donuts I've ever had from Britt's!  Britt's is a family owned donut shop and it definitely measured up to all of the hype that I had heard about it.




We enjoyed a good day on the beach with the sunshine and people watching!

I'm glad that Penny got to come out and visit last Summer and I hope she gets to come back soon!

While we had all of this fun last July, Jon was busy in Nicaragua on a mission trip...


Oh what a fun July it was in 2014!  Hope you enjoyed our mooooo-ing good time!

There is a lot more to come, so stay tuned for more recaps of last year.  One day I will get caught up!

Love,
Katie


Hello....I'm Baaaaaaacccckkkk!

Hello, friends!!  It's been way too long!

Where do I begin?  Life since the last time I've blogged has had some ups, downs, twists, and turns.

First off, I got a promotion at work.  I thought it would be something I would enjoy...turns out the job wasn't for me.  I spent eight months trying to make it work, but looking back on it, I wasn't myself during this job.  My faith and my family are the two most important things to me and those two things started to take a back seat when I took the job.  Thankfully I got a new job with the same company five minutes from home and I couldn't be happier!  I am so blessed to have the job that I do now and I am really happy in it.  I've turned into my old goofy self and life is much better now.  Needless to say, I feel like I'm back to being me!  It feels good!

I feel like I have to go back and recount everything that happened this past year.  I want to be able to look back on my blog and remember stuff that the Preacher Man and I did.  So here is your warning...this could be the first of many long posts recapping the last year.  Hope you enjoy!  

Here we go...

Last March we bought a new car!  First big purchase for us together!


In the Summer we went to the beach...



Ate at Lee's...


Played some night golf...



And got my very favorite ice cream cones...



We did some fishing...



Last July I got to go see Jodi, my BFF in Charlotte!  She introduced me to bo-rounds at Bojangles!


We went to the mall in Charlotte...so fun!


And ate ice cream!!! I will never turn down ice cream!!  It's my love language!! Haha!




I watched my cousin, Mason, graduate online.  Gotta love technology!


I made some strawberry jam with a hint of lemon.


And, I got a tattoo!


Just Kidding!!!  I'm way to big of a chicken!!  I did go with some girls to be moral support though!  It was my first time in a tattoo parlor.  We sure did have a lot of fun!!  

I watched Kate get her nose pierced, too!  She was braver than I ever could be!


And we had to have an obligatory picture in front of the sign!


Hubs and I went to a baseball game...





We went home to see family---

We checked out the Mennonites veggies...


And loved their cash registers!


We celebrated Ma's 90th birthday with a fun candy bar card...


And I got to meet Fisher!!  My other sister from my momma's BFF had a baby last summer and he is just the most precious thing!!


We also got to play with the Armstrong puppies!!



Cousin Bennett loved Jon!


And we hung out with these fun kids...



I made enough gravy to cover what seemed like a million biscuits for our small group!


I had my last day of work before my new job...


And my sister came over to visit and we dressed up like cows.


I'm going to stop here for now with my recap of the past year because the picture above needs its very own post.

Thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me.  I've got quite a bit more to share, so stick around while I get caught up!

Happy to be blogging again,
Katie
