Monday Musings

It was kind of a weird weekend with Jake away in Chicago for his Grandpa’s funeral. He still isn’t back actually – he is supposed to fly in late tonight. The boys and I had some Mommy/Sons time though, which was nice. The weather in Charleston, SC was on the chilly side this weekend, but that didn’t keep us from playing outside.



{Love that vintage fire truck Jake’s dad had repainted for Breckin for Christmas. You don’t see toys like this at the store anymore! I think we’ll save this one to pass down to our grandchildren. On another note, please excuse the heinousness that is our grass. It always looks terrible in the winter…the grass in Charleston is yucky in my opinion anyway. Plan on putting down some more seed in the next few weeks for spring.}

Additionally, as promised, here is the pic of Jake and me when we got to meet The Band Perry on Valentine’s Day before their concert:

The brother to the left of me, Neil, was dying over my Minnetonka Moccassins claiming he’s “all about the fringe right now”. I told him to go get him some. Here’s a reminder of how my whole ensemble looked that evening:

Kimberly is so cute and so pretty {and I just adore her voice, always sing my heart out to their songs in the car}…hard to believe she’s turning 30 this year just like me {listen to me, I make it sound like we should look old and ragged or something!} She was a bit shorter than I imagined…she was wearing high heel boots and still a bit shorter than me as you can see in the pic – and my boots are heel-less! But her hair – TO DIE FOR. I can only dream of having that kind of volume and curls that stay.

On Friday, I officially started my new job. It’s sort of interesting right now…the office is just an empty space that they just started the lease on. Everyone I work for/with is either in Dubai or some other state. So I’m working, but not really working. I’m just basically on call to get the office things together – phone, internet, furniture, etc. and won’t officially start my main duties until probably April. Don’t mind getting paid anyway! Nice to have the somewhat lax schedule right now. I drove out to the office that day to check it out and get the keys and my lovelies, let me show you the view I will get to see every day:

I mean, have I upgraded from the windowless factory at Boeing, or what? I can’t wait to take nice walks at lunch hour – maybe I can even skip over to the Cooper River Bridge {that beauty in the background} and get some cardio in. I am starting at the best time too – spring. Spring in Charleston is lovely and the weather is perfect. I work right next to the South Carolina Aquarium, so anyone in Charleston knows how nice the place is.

The rest of the weekend I spent just catching up on housework, etc…you know, the usual. Always something to be done around here, I tell you. I actually cleaned out Jake’s truck while he was gone…he can be such a slob with his vehicle, then add in the fact that he works in construction. So yeah – sawdust, tools, nails and random trash littered all about. I refuse even to ride in his truck if he doesn’t wipe out my seat. So I shop-vac’d and Armor-All’d the hell out of that thing. Can’t wait to see how surprised he is when he gets in it to go to work tomorrow.

Anyway, that’s all I have for this Monday Musings post…hope y’all had a great weekend! xoxo
