all's quiet on the home front

I know I haven't been blogging much lately. Nothing very interesting has been going on and truthfully, I'm completely ok with that. Normally we are so very go-go-go that's it's nice to be slow-slow-slow.

Saturday morning, the hubs went and helped a friend reshingle part of his roof. Of course spring in South Carolina means sunny 87 degree days, so I'll give you one guess what happened. Say it with me now...sunburn. Poor thing was extra crispy when he got home around lunch time.

Saturday afternoon we headed out for a photo shoot {not of me}. The hubs has been expanding his photography portfolio and I can tell he really enjoys it. Maybe one day it'll go from hobby to profession. Take a look here.

Sunday was the best day of all. I stayed in my pjs all day long while watching these three movies on instant Netflix:

How was your weekend?

st. patrick's day parade

I've fallen off the blog bandwagon again. Let's pretend it never happened, ok?

My mom decided she wanted to enter a float into the St. Patty's Day Parade in Five Points for her store, Memere's Attic.

We got up early to go to the staging area to decorate the Memere's Attic float.

The master piece came together very nicely. 

One of my mom's friends had two beautiful banners made for her.

All the helper leprechauns in green!

No detail was too small!

Of course my dad was in on the action.

Allison came so she could be on her first ever float. Little did she know that we'd spend the majority of the parade running around handing out necklaces!

The parade was a very fun experience. We did lots of running around passing out goodies, so that afternoon everyone enjoyed a well deserved nap!
