Better Late Than Never

It's been a while since my last post! I've been crazy busy and just haven't made the time. It also doesn't help that my husband steals my Mac every evening to do his homework! So it's Saturday morning, 8 am and I've finally managed to squeeze some time in while he's still sleeping!

A lot has happened - my great friend Ruthie got married to a wonderful man, Mike!! Their wedding was so much fun and the second we arrived I thought, this is sooo Ruthie! It was perfect! The following weekend we headed back to the upstate for David's best friend, Carter's wedding. David and Carter were roommates in College all 4 years and played soccer together on the USC-Upstate team. He married Nikki and they are absolutely perfect together! We had a great time at both weddings!

After the weddings my parents came into town over the course of a few weekends to help build our back deck! I have awesome parents and our new deck looks great!!!!

Here is a before picture:

A couple shots of the construction:


We've actually done some more yard work since this picture was taken and I've painted our back fence! It's been a work in progress but it's coming together very nicely and I am so happy with it! I can't wait to enjoy it for July 4th! We're having a bbq with friends and I'm so excited! I just hope it's not too hot and we can't enjoy the outdoors!

June 13, 2011 - David and my 2 year wedding anniversary! Gah, I can't believe it's been 2 years!! It's gone by so fast! We went out to celebrate and had a wonderful evening. We went to Halls Chophouse on King Street. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! We had a great time and they even gave us a complimentary glass of champagne!

More exciting news - I got a promotion at work! YAY! I'm very excited!! I will still be a Personal Banker but there are 2 levels - I was a Personal Banker 1 and now I am a Personal Banker 2. The difference between the two is that Wells Fargo will sponsor me to get licensed and I will be working more closely with a Financial Advisor. I will be getting my Series 6 and 63 in November and this will allow me to discuss investment options and annuities. I'm very excited about the promotion but it comes bittersweet - I have to move to another location. I have been working downtown, which is so convenient because I also live downtown and I love everyone that I work with, but I will be relocating into Mount Pleasant. I was able to visit my new location this past week and met everyone that I will be working with. They are all so nice! I am going to miss my Broad Street crew but I'm anxious to get started July 1st!

Well, I better get motivated - lots to do before our guests arrive this week! Anna and John Paddock are the first to arrive. They are coming into town Tuesday night and staying through the weekend! I'm so excited to see them! Then on Friday -- Megan and Chris Huebner are coming, followed by Amy, Josh and Charli Paddock! We are going to have a FULL HOUSE :) And... I just found out on Thursday that my favorite college girls are coming into town too on Friday! I'm SUPER EXCITED to see them - 518 Reunion!!! It was such a great surprise and we're going to have a great 4th of July Weekend!!!

Happy Independence Day Everyone! Have fun!
