Life Lately

Warning this is gonna be a photo dump but just want to get caught up on January thus far. Can't believe we are in the last week of January already. I thought December went by quickly but I think January has gone faster. 

January started out with a New Years celebration with the Reynolds Family and the Hartmans at our house. We made prime rib and ended the night with a fire out back. 

On January 1st was the ROSE BOWL! I think it's the best football game I've ever watched. It was just awesome! We went to my friend Carly's new apartment complex to watch. We brought a bunch of apps and had a great evening! Thanks to Coco and Tpop for babysitting so I could actually watch the game. Now it was time to gear up for the National Championship the next week! 

I had a bunch of friends come into town for the National Championship so we took full advantage of the festivities in Atlanta. We went to Fan Fare on Sunday afternoon downtown which was a great time. So cool to be in the championship in Atlanta. 

Then on Monday (day of the game) school was canceled due to "weather". So I was able to head to meet friends earlier than anticipated. We met at Alex's house before heading to Sidebar in Downtown before the Tabernacle opened. I didn't have a ticket to the game (along with a lot of my friends because $$$$$) so we watched the game at the Tabernacle. DawgDays rented out the place for a UGA watch party. It was such a throwback because I ran into so many people I hadn't seen since college. We had a great time (minus the tv glitching at some very important moments grrrr). Anyway besides the end result it was such a fun day!

That next weekend was MLK weekend and we headed to Cape San Blas, Florida, with all the Maxey crew and Tommy's parents to celebrate Tommy, Tyler and Andrew turning 30 this month. We rented a big house and all stayed there for three nights right on the beach. It was chilly but we enjoyed the down time together. Christy and Andrew live in West Palm and Tyler and Lindsay live in Destin so we never get a lot of down time to just hang with them. Usually when they are in town it's for an event or holiday so it's usually a rushed visit between their time with family. We played games, ate lots of great food, and just enjoyed each other's company. It was a great weekend!

We came home a bit tired (Emma was up in the middle of the night every night there. Girl likes her own crib and room) and went back to work on Tuesday. Well that was it for work that week. We got snow/ice Tuesday night and school was canceled Wednesday-Friday. What a weird week! Emma needed the time home because yet again she was a bit under the weather and needed some mommy r and r. 

We enjoyed the down time. It was too cold to really spend any time outside those days! 

Lastly this past weekend I surprised Tommy with a 30th birthday celebration at Sweetwater Brewery with a bunch of his friends and family. He was totally surprised and we had a great time! After the brewery some of us went to eat at Grindhouse after. It was nice to get everyone together to celebrate Tommy. (He claims he never gets a birthday since we share the same birthday)

Sunday was just gorgeous! We started with brunch at the Robinsons with Beth/Marsha in town. Then I played tennis that afternoon. I played a 3 set match and it was nice to get out and play especially on a gorgeous day after being in the house for so many days prior. More to come later this week with birthday celebrations for me and Tommy.
