Miles is not a fan

North Carolina has become a key state in the Democratic Primary so last week Hillary Clinton came to Asheville. It happened to be girls night out with some of the girls from work so I told Shelley 'why don't you go and I'll take Miles to see Hillary at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. A little guys night out, right? Right! We waited in the mob of people and luckily got through the TSA security still with a baby bottle full of milk. We settled in our perfect front row seats in the balcony and it was a lot of fun until things got going in the auditorium. Everybody is hootin' and hollerin' for Hillary...they are throwing t-shirts and adjectives like nobodies business and then... I think Miles became the loudest person in the room. Yup. He was screaming. So I thought he was hungry so I fed him his bottom. nope! definitely not hungry! So I sadly had to close the door on guys night out. The minute we walked out of the auditorium Miles falls fast asleep. crazy. It was pretty depressing to leave. I mean there were at least a thousand people just standing outside the auditorium because they had closed the doors to a full house. Oh well.
It felt good to do something for Miles that wasn't what I wanted to do.

good times

We had a really fun weekend! This was the first weekend that I didn't have to work on Saturday so we took advantage of the time and went to Boone for the day. We took a more scenic route than usual and enjoyed seeing everything in bloom. Spring in western N.C. is amazing. Anyways, we started off our day trip in Blowing Rock where we ate at this neat little diner called Sonnys. We had amazing hamburgers and ham biscuits! Sometimes it's just fun to eat junk food! Here's a pic of Miles and Corey up at the diner bar where we ate...

After we ate we shopped around in Blowing Rock for a little bit and then we headed to the Tanger Outlets! I was able to get some new clothes at the J Crew outlet for my birthday and Corey found a new suit for his sister's upcoming wedding! Miles also got a new bathing suit for the summer! After visiting the outlets we headed up to Foscoe to spend a few hours at the mountain house. What fun to lay outside and bask in the sun with Miles. We had fun showing Miles the creek and the really soft moss. Here are some pics from our time at the mountain house..

When we got home later that night it was really cold! So Corey worked out in the yard a little bit and Miles and I cheered him on! Here's some last pics of MIles in his cute coat! Look at those blue eyes...

So, that's a little glimpse of our life. We are having so much fun!

family fun

Yesterday my grandmother, Mama Swan, and my cousin Patrick came up for the day. It was so much fun to catch up with Patrick and to spend time with my grandmother. Of course they loved getting to see Miles! We drove around the town, went out for coffee and finished our day with an amazing steak dinner! (Thanks Mama Swan) !! Here are some pics of Miles with his great grandmother Swan and his 2nd cousin, Patrick. Thanks for coming to see us!

Fleet Foxes

I've been obsessed with this band ever since I saw them at the Grey Eagle in Asheville. I haven't played an album over and over again since Radiohead released - In Rainbows. It's beautiful perfection in what they call baroque harmonic pop jams.

Listen to Mykonos on the EP Sun Giant.

two ways to hear...

A little behind

Hello friends and family, I hope this post finds everyone doing well. I am a little behind in posting these Easter pics, but I am just now finding a free moment. My mom was here for Easter and we just had such a fun time! Miles were his little bunny outfit that we got at the consignment market, (quite a steal). Anyways, Miles and I got back from Atlanta yesterday, we had such a great time with the Huntons. I will post pics from our weekend very soon! So, here are some late Easter pictures. He is Risen, He is Risen indeed!
