It’s Summa Time & The Livins’ Easy (…But Busy)

Hello you wild little love muffins!

I have a million things to throw at you, so I will refrain from doing it all at once in effort to not turn this into a novel and give you major brain overload.

So what have I been up to?

camping1 Kicking off summer of course!

We got our first “camping”/lake trip in on Memorial Day weekend (“camping” because it is like the city people camping where you go in a camper rather than the real Alaska style I’m used to – roughin’ it in a tent).



It’s not all fun and games and boats and beers though; work has been soooo busy for both Torrance and I (which is a good thing, since we are both in sales) so we have been doing a lot of that (womp womp)


But besides the work and fun– there is something exciting coming up…

Remember this guy?

TP dad Yes, that’s Torrance’s dad.

…..He is moving here from Alaska at the end of this month!

Obviously this has been a long time coming. I mean for us, you know it was a 6 month preparation-fest …. and we didnt even have a house we were leaving to worry about, or 3 young kids! So they (him and his new wife) have been busting ass for the last year or so to make it happen and now it is finally so close! So we are definitely excited.

They are also driving – so we can only hope that nothing bad happens along their trip… ya know, like break down and get stranded for 5 days in the tiniest town in IL when it’s 112 degrees (just sayin’)

So as they finish up their packing and last details on their house in Alaska to get it on the market to sell, we have been doing some leg work on this end to find them a house (to rent for a bit). We’ve looked at a ridiculous amount of them and finally found the perfect one!


That’s the gist of how my time has been consumed. Though I have spent some time (at night) catching up on my favorite shows – and since I recently read Mindy Kaling’s book…


…I decided I had to watch her show (The Mindy Project). Hil-a-rious by the way. I just love her. I maaaay have watched the whole first season in like, just a couple sittings.


Okokok I’ll leave you guys with that for now – part 1 if you will.

Part 2 will include an update on how my weight loss thing is going (its going good, if you cant stand the suspense) and also a discount code for an AWESOME new online boutique (hint: the boutique was just recently opened by a fellow blogger!) and some other fun stuff!

CIAO for now!

  • Tell me something you are looking forward to soon!

    • ALWAYS for wine! 🙂 I swear someday I will make it out your way for a visit too dangit!
      And we usually go to Lake Norman since its only about 45 minutes away. I liked Belews here in Winston too but the water is too warm when it’s real hot out!
