Cory & I did something a little crazy

On Mondays, we do crazy things. (get my not so slick reference to Mean Girls, right there??) Ok, but in all seriousness, Cory and I did get a little wild on Memorial Day this year. 

Because on Monday, Cory and I packed up everything we owned, and moved BACK home. Yep, you read that right. Truth be told, we missed home. Like a lot. A whole heck of a lot. So when Cory's boss gave him a call with an opportunity to come back to the Memphis area, it didn't take us too long to make a decision. 

As for me and my job, I was graciously offered to be the interim rep for my territory until they find my replacement, which in turn took a load of stress off of my back. Long story short, I'll be traveling Monday through Friday each week and headed home on Fridays..which I'm sure will be testing at times. We will continue to see how that goes, but for now, I'm thankful to be able to keep my job.

And if you just so happen to be the praying type, I would appreciate any and all thoughts shot up to the Big Man Upstairs in the hopes that my awesome company can find me a position a little closer to home.

beaches, bays, & babies (well, my nieces will always be my babies)

This weekend my mom, sister, brother-in-law, and two nieces came down to visit Cory and me on the coast. Gosh, after a whirlwind week of work, it was perfect timing for some sunshine and pure, uninterrupted veggin'.  

Surprisingly the crowds for Memorial Day were not as bad as I imagined they would be, and we spent the whole three days swimming and building sand castles without a care in the world. (And maybe an outlet store shopping trip thrown in there too for good measure..)

And y'all, I might have had a little freak out over my nieces. THEY ARE GETTING TOO BIG. I mean, geez, I totally now understand what my Gran meant when she said she wished she could "just stick a brick on your head to keep you from growing." How do y'all moms handle it?!? Thankfully when I mentioned this little tidbit of info to Ava, she told me "Whit, I'll always be your baby. Forever! Or at least for 54,170 days." Cue the happy tears. :) 

How was y'all's Memorial Day weekend?

Q&A a day | a 5 year journal
The Great Gatsby | F. Scott Fitzgerald
Wuthering Heights | Emily Bronte
Rebecca | Daphne Du Maurier

These are part of my ultimate go to reading collection. Books I can literally read over and over again. 
Anything I'm missing? What is your favorite book?
