Last Saturday we celebrated Megan and Adi with a Stock the Bar shower in Atlanta. It was a blast!
Have you ever heard of 'bros icing bros?' This is something that Adi and his friends ran across in South Africa while there for the World Cup. The basic premise is that you present someone slyly with a Smirnoff Ice and they must get on one knee and chug it immediately. So, we decided to hide one in their present!Adi was a trooper and chugged a hot green apple bite Smirnoff Ice on the deck. :)
Eclipse di Luna with the crew. It was such a fun evening. They didn't bring Adi a margarita glass so he just drank out of the pitcher. Ha. Doesn't he look like Scotty on Idol holding his microphone?
Wow, things have been wild around the Shingler household! I worked 19 straight days around Masters. It is a fun week but takes lots of prep and long hours. Of course, nothing else clowed down then either. :)
Granny is back at Brandon Wilde but one of us still tries to get by to see her every day. She seems to getting better and even went to church last Sunday!
My grandmother (Mema) had a small event last week and was in the hospital for two days. They still aren't exactly sure what happened but she is back home. We stopped by to see her on the way back from Atlanta last weekend.
My car had to go in the shop. of course, it is almost paid off and it starts acting up. It was a minor thing but being without a car is never fun!
Brad has a new job!!! He will start Monday with Vann Appraisals here in Augusta. They are a private commercial appraisal firm. He has wanted to get to that side for a while now and is really excited. It will be tough for the first few months but I know this will be a great career for him. Goodbye county job!
Brad's Dad's birthday was Thursday so we had him and Debbie over for dinner. We had Swiss chicken, honeyed cashew green beans, cheddar cheese rolls and cheesecake. Yum!
My friend Spencer from Kiawah is in town today playing the National (jealous) and we are going to meet up for drinks before he heads back this afternoon.
We went to Atlanta last weekend for Megan and Adi's stock the bar shower. We spent the night and had a wonderful Easter brunch at Empire State South. Pictures to follow!!
I have been doing a lot of reading and cooking in my small windows of free time. Book and recipe suggestions are coming soon!!
