Ready for our big news?! We have a new member of our family to introduce. We're so "hoppy" to announce the arrival of our new kegerator! Dropping mom jokes and bad puns over here like it ain't no thang :)
Mike and I love to get traditional gifts for each other on our anniversary. The traditional gift for your sixth wedding anniversary is iron...and here we are! We've alllways wanted a kegerator and now that we're true Asheville beer snobs (you can't help it, it just happens when you live here) we figured there's no time like the present. Plus we both love and watch a lot of football and basketball so we're basically game-ready for the next eight months.
This weekend we're doing all the boring but necessary house and yard work because A) it's overdue and B) next weekend is Labor Day and we'll have guests in town. Mike has his fantasy football draft and I'm having the girls over for some wine. Both of us living our best lives.
