Football is here!

I've been a bad blogger, but really not much has been going on. I'm definitely not complaining though - it is great to have time to spend at the pool, the beach or doing absolutely nothing (literally. We are stretched out on the couch watching "Rambo." What a Friday night!).

I do have a few fun things worthy of note though...

The first is the kickoff of Georgia football this weekend! No one else here really seems to care about college football, but I wore red & black to work today to start cheering on the dawgs a day early! I'm already sick of Lou Holtz's lisp but I digress...

In honor of the kickoff of college football, check out BooMama's DipTacular weekend. This is one of the best ideas I have ever seen. I LOVE DIPS! ...and if you do too, check it out. Or post your own and link to her DipTacular Post. Yum!
In other exciting news...last week was our 4 month anniversary. Can you believe we have been married for 1/3 of a year already?! I know that it's not a very long time in the long run, but it feels like our wedding was just yesterday. To celebrate, David surprised me with pretty flowers and a giant piece of Chris' Outrageous Chocolate Cake from the Cheesecake Factory. He's fabulous!He is also fabulous because this week, he committed to a year long internship at Christ Fellowship Church here in Palm Beach. Yes, that means we're living here for at least the next year, so there is lots of time to come visit. Seriously though, I'm really proud of him and I think he will really enjoy his time there working with life groups. I'm also excited about getting involved with him!

To celebrate (kind of), we went to $1 Taco Night at Havana Hideout in Palm Beach with our friends the Stallings and the Litters. It POURED (and of course all the seating is outside, uncovered) - so we were all soaked (hence the lack of pictures) but it was fun, and definitely something I think we'll remember for awhile. We're just happy to finally have made some fun friends here!

And...even though this post sounds like all we do is eat, we have really enjoyed eating healthier lately and playing with coupons. How lame is that?! We've actually both lost about 4 lbs. in the past couple weeks and yesterday we dominated at Target with all our coupons and savings. We spent $25, saved $17 and got a free $5 gift card. YEAH! We've had pretty equally good trips to Publix lately too, basically just planning our menu for the week around whatever is on sale/what we have coupons for. We've also been using The Grocery Game (click for a free trial!) which rounds up all the sales and coupons going on at stores so you can save the most. As lame as it is, we have had a lot of fun trying to figure out the best deals and we've saved a lot of money.

Oh and here are some obligatory pictures of our beautiful, scenic "backyard." Be jealous!

Happy football weekend! Go Dawgs!
