Playing catch up

Wow... the last time I blogged was the night before our 1st anniversary! (May 20th) I admit that's beyond a little ridiculous... If any of you are still following, hello again! I'd like to think I'll get better now that we're in a routine, but I doubt it.

I love to blog for us. One day I'll be glad I did so we have all these memories written down in detail, but lately since I work on the computer all day the last thing I want to do at home is get on the computer.

But anyway, I digress! Let's get back to the important stuff. It's been over 3 months now, but let's recap our 1st anniversary.

We both had to work because our anniversary was a Monday.(Boo!) But after we met out at the hotel on the beach. The same hotel we had gotten engaged at 2 years earlier(I know, aww!), the Springhill Suites. I looooove that place. I would live there if I could. We got dressed up all fancy schmancy and went to dinner at Hemingway's(the restaurant we had our wedding the year before). It was delicious as usual. We ended up with a rainy night, but Pensacola beach is always beautiful regardless! After dinner we went back to the room and tried our cake. My mom did an excellent job of wrapping up the top layer of our wedding cake and it was seriously just as good as the day of our wedding!

After that we ventured down to the pool bar and enjoyed the hot tub. We met another couple down there and ended up walking across the street to the Irish Pub and doing karaoke with them for a while. It was a blast! The next morning we enjoyed a little time in the hotel's gorgeous pool, and then our mini vaca ended way too soon as we headed home to relax around the house for the rest of our day off. Can't wait til the next anniversary! ;)

Another major reason I haven't written much is that there hasn't been a whole lot going on around the Volheim house this summer. Too much work, a little playing when possible. Mostly trying to stay cool and dry during this ridiculous hot and rainy summer! So much for Florida being the sunshine state!!

We do have some pretty exciting news!(No, we're not having a baby... yet!) We signed a contract last month and the building has begun on our first home! We're beyond ecstatic! They've actually cleared our lot, but nothing will really get started until the end of next month(that hasn't stopped us from driving by to check once a week though! Ha) It's expected to be finished in February. Needless to say my pinterest has become overrun with house decorating ideas.

Other than those two things and a Corey Smith concert.. we pretty much spent our summer tubing, slip n sliding, beaching, and avoiding the heat! Below are some pictures from our summer.

Now that summer is winding down.. well ok, let's be realistic, it's still going to be a million degrees for the next couple months, but my favorite season is finally back! FOOTBALL SEASON! Namely, Seminole and Saints football seasons are in full swing! We went to the first home game this weekend and it was so much fun! I don't think I fully realized how much I missed it. Stephen even had one of his lifelong dreams come true as our friend Anthony, a Seminole tight end, took us down on the field after the game to take pictures. He was like a little kid on Christmas! It was also my sweet baby Trae's first game and he LOVED it! I thought for sure he would be bored by the end of the 1st, but nope! That boy was cheering, chopping and watching the entire game! I was such a proud aunt. I think it's safe to say he will be a little Nole for life!(At least if Aunt LoLo and Uncle Tephen hve anything to do with it! ;)

Now that we're all caught up, thanks for hanging with me! Let's see if I can get better about this blogging thing again! Hopefully there will be more FSU games, house updates, and other fall fun things in our near future to keep you posted on. Happy Tuesday y'all!
