1/2 Marathon

On Sunday, my sister ran the 1/2 marathon in Atlanta. This was her second year doing it... such an accomplishment! She trained so hard and had a great race. I was really glad that we got to be there to support... and even happier that we were on the sidelines and not in the race, haha. :) Here are a few pics from the morning.

You can almost hear it, "Matt! Hey Matt, hey!" 

 So sweet!

Mom and Charles got back from their cruise the night before and came out to support- so sweet :)

Here comes my sister on the right in the blue.

 She almost ran right past us... we were yelling so loud but she was in the zone!

 Yay! She saw us right before she ran by!

That's what I call motivation! Love this. :) 


And last I leave you with a picture of Matt after he got back from a real estate reception last week.  Unfortunately, spouses weren't invited, but he was too cute to not take a picture of!

We have internet!

As sad as it may sound, a house doesn't fully feel like a home until you have TV and internet.  So as of yesterday, we are finally feeling like this is home!  Praise the Lord that the guy could finally finish everything before the NCAA tournament starts this Thursday.  And before Clemson plays in the play-in game tonight at 9:00.  GO TIGERS!  We may or may not have traveled to many places over the last three weeks trying to mooch internet or TV.  But that's what happens when the sweet lady that lived here before us only had connections for a 1950s phone line.  Here is a shot of one of our many trips to the book store:
(Okay, so we actually just like going to the bookstore and probably would have done this whether we had internet or not... hence Matt reading and NOT using the internet :) )

Not having TV and internet though has given us time to really settle. I feel pretty excited about how things are looking!  My parents brought us furniture that was in the house I grew up in for one of the guest bedrooms. They were our first official guests. :)

And here's the finished product of the living room and guest room!

Finally, last night we had two of my college roommates and their hubbies over for The Bachelor finale (such good sports our guys are!).
