A Dawg’on good time!

So Friday night I saw some UGA tix on sale through a friend of mine on facebook for Saturday’s game against UK. SniperBen and I snatched ’em up! We’ve been enjoying football this season (even though our GA teams are kinda suckin’ in general) and somehow neither of us have been to a UGA game! After swinging by Best Buy for a more user friendly camera, and Perimeter Mall (my new favorite playground btw) for a cute bulldogs shirt, we were off! Continue reading “A Dawg’on good time!”

What are YOU thankful for??



Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so what better time to tell you how THANKful I am to have you in my life. Thank you for loving me. For buying me flowers. For making me breakfast in bed. For running with me (and always stopping when I need to stop even though you don’t need to). For saying “Good Morning Sunshine” every.single.morning. For paying attention to small details. For adjusting to life with a 7 year old. For your surprises. For ALWAYS asking how my day is and actually caring about the details of it. For still opening the car door for me. For taking me on dates. For planning things and being patient when I want to be spontaneous. For listening to me mention that I want to try a dark chocolate Reese cup and showing up with one the next time you walk out of a store. For making me laugh until I can’t breath. For never letting me go to bed angry. For singing in the car with me. For letting me love you, for making me happy, and for so much more. 🙂

I can’t wait to spend our first holidays together. <3

I love you,


Bliggidy blaow!

Today I came across this video. At first I was mainly interested in the song (which is now one of my fav songs), but then I was just enthralled by Travis Barker’s drumming. This guy is TOTALLY into it. Like he is going to town like it’s no body’s biznass! So yeah, I wanted to pass this along and share with others.

Enjoy, and lemme know what you think. Also, this gave me the motivation to do more pushups, situps and get back on the running. Well, the running will have to wait until either tomorrow or Saturday, but still.

Le Spooky de la Towne

So Halloween has come and gone and oh what a great one it was. It’s always been my favorite “holiday” and this year was no exception.

For the past few years I’ve been collecting pieces from Spooky Town. With the sale of the house I couldn’t really put them out for display, but now that I’m in an apartment, I can put anything out I want. So when Oct rolled around it was time to load up the car with all my stuff from my parents house and decorate my house to the gills…Halloween style!

It certainly was nice to finally be able to decorate and put all this stuff out. I really felt at home once everything was out and lit up. I had almost forgotten how fun it was and how much I enjoyed this part of the season. So that was that, Spooky Town and all my other decorations went up and and the Sniper’s first Halloween was all set. We meant to get more pics of the house, but we have many, many, many more years to take care of that. For now, these pics will have to do.

Up next is Thanksgiving. I’m really looking forward to some family time with Jess and Chase. I can’t wait to have them around for decorating my grandmother’s fence (family tradition) and all the other festivities that come with the holiday season. Stay tuned, more to come.


Man Card??

So…SniperBen’s man card might be in jeopardy, but I’m dragging him with me to see New Moon in two weeks. I’m semi-obsessed with the books and I’m stoked about seeing this! SB is a doll, and says that anything that gets me THIS excited is something he has to see for himself. The fact that he wants to go see this with me/for me…makes me want to sink my teeth into that man. 😉

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween SniperFans! And for us…it was our first! 🙂 We had Chase for the weekend, and we spent it in Dunwoody with some of SniperBen’s family. It was a rainy weekend, so we skipped on trick or treating and went to a festival at Dylan’s (SB’s nephew) school. My little vampire ran around and had a blast, and I got to meet SB’s brother and sister! After the games, we had a dinner at a place that SB and I went to a long time ago and had some fantastic bbq. After putting the little blood sucker to bed, we watched none other than…Halloween! We’ve made it to Halloween H20 and it was the perfect Halloween night movie! It was a fantastic first Halloween. I’m going to miss the Spookytown decor around the apartment (pics coming soon!)…but Thanksgiving and Christmas are on the way! Lots more firsts on the way for the snipers. 🙂
