a NEW post!!

Hi all--
I haven't been on here in forever. This spring has been really busy. We have beeCheck Spellingn going to the pool, going for runs and made a trip to Asheville NC.
Asheville was amazing, we brought the dogs as well so I think they enjoyed themselves. The first day we went downtown to some bars and brought the dogs to the dog park. It was a really nice dog park and right near the river. Asheville was so pretty with an emphasis on health and the outdoors.
The first night we went to dinner and made it an early night. On Sunday we went to the Biltmore and both really had fun. It is the largest home in America. We couldn't believe that someone would take on such a challenge. It is difficult enough keeping up with a regular sized house, but the largest home! It was gorgeous, the view was amazing and the gardens were my favorite part. There were so many roses and other varieties of flowers, I was in heaven and took tons of pictures and came back home and fixed up the landscape a little. We also went wine tasting at the Biltmore and bought two bottles of wine. The next day was Memorial Day and it was rainy so we took off early and headed home. It was a relaxing trip but too short.
We are leaving in a week for Nags Head NC and staying for a week. I am beyond excited. Work has been very stressful and I really need to recharge my battery!
Other big things this spring....Carl and I both turned 30! yikes.
I had a party at the house with all my girlfriends and we had a blast. Everyone brought wine and we were going to have a tasting but it ended as a wine free for all! Then we did a spa treatment at the house and then I had a psychic come to the house and give us all readings. Some people didn't get the best news, but my reading was great! She told me Carl and I would have 3 kids, I was married to my soul mate, money would never be an issue and I had no enemies in my friends and family. Not too bad! The rest of the weekend was just as great. We had dinner with Mike and Amanda Jay who were in town on Saturday and then Sunday we went to dinner at a great seafood place downtown, Hanks. Beth and Gabby had a bottle of wine sent to the table and it made me cry a little. I felt so loved and so special. It was a really nice way to ring in my 30's.
Carl's birthday was a few weeks ago. I made dinner and we had some neighbors over, far more relaxed then mine but that is Carl I guess!
I hope all is well with everyone out there. I'm really sorry I been so MIA but I will try and update more and check my email more. At the end of the day, especially if I worked, I am exhausted. Let's all hope a vacation will help!
