Test Title 1

home again ...

wade and i spent an amazing weekend in asheville, nc w/ an intimate crew celebrating his former roommate keelie and eric's wedding.

it was fantastic.

{the view from the cabin}

we arrived thursday night - and kicked the weekend off with dinner at olive or twist & some pretty ridiculous martinis. mine - bangin' the captain 3 ways on the comforter, wade's - the cajun (which included hot sauce - ick!). most entertaining: the middle-aged couples twisting & twirling around table and bar stool throughout the entire restaurant.

friday - we stuffed ourselves w/ indian street food followed by m&m caramel apples & white chocolate rice crispy treats in downtown asheville. yum! at one point we found ourselves on a street w/ a yarn shop, a celtic chop, and a belt buckle shop all in a row. and agreed - we need another trip to asheville to explore the city a bit more. then we took a mini hike {an attempt to counterbalance our previous indulgences} and headed back to the cabin for a cookout and campfire.


saturday morning was a blur of dress ironing, bouquet making, and hair curling ... followed by keelie & eric's beautiful mid-afternoon ceremony. lyric appropriate:

here's a little time we can borrow
forget all our troubles in these moments so few
all we've got right now, the only thing that
all we really have to do
is have ourselves a heavenly day

{thank you, patty griffin ... heavenly day}

the day ended with countless glasses of champagne, 2 on 2 basketball games, more ping pong, and one too many s'mores around another campfire. all while dressed as pirates - in honor of the good ol' days (pre-blair) when keelie, wade, dave and chris hosted smashing pirate parties on belmont blvd. wade was smashing as captain and i his parrot!

{i'll update soon w/ more pictures.}


now it's monday ... and it's back to the grind. a full week of work, business lunches and evening obligations. sigh. and we're still down to 1 car (rumor is derek - my car - will come home tonight!).

wade and i realized this weekend that we've only been home one weekend since we got married! one weekend!!! i'm craving time at home to finish unpacking and really dive into decorating. it's making me restless.

today i made a to do list of all the projects i have in mind:

* make kitchen curtains (the supplies are in! just to find time)
* BB&B run to pick up plate stands & a few other things off the registry
* { ... followed by} unpack the china cabinet
* a thorough scrub down of the floors & baseboards throughout the house
* make pillows for the new couch
* {and speaking of new couch ...} clean and condition the leather - √ done 11/2
* sand & stain the filing cabinet and desk
* take wedding dress & wedding blanket to the dry cleaners - √ done 11/1
* take leather shoes to the cobbler - √ done 11/1
* choose a color and paint the bedside tables
* decide on curtains for the bedroom
* paint the step stool in the bathroom
* change out the knobs on the dresser in the bedroom
* buy a bust and organize my jewelry

... patience! i'm definitely learning to have patience. :)
