It may have been 50 degrees on Wednesday and not much warmer and raining today but this forecast makes me feel a little more on the positive that spring just MIGHT be around the corner...and staying for good.

As most of my Raleigh friends already know, we are losing a childhood (and current) favorite on Sunday.  Fat Daddy's will be closing their doors and its causing much devastation in the City of Oaks.  There have been many great karaoke nights, swim team dinners, youth group breakfasts, etc. over the years.  I only wish I could have gotten home to have one last burger, fries, and cheese sauce.  Word on the street is that its going to be a Panera Bread(!!!).  RIP.

I am due for an upgrade on my phone next week.  I currently have a regular old iPhone 4.  Should I just do the 5c or go for the 5S?  Anyone have an opinion on the two?  Regardless the 5 seems to take better pictures and work better with the ios7.  I've also been scouting new cases...

I want to send a little shout to my friends.  The little things that I was given for my birthday (which they did NOT need to get me anything!!!!) were so thoughtful and so me.  You all rock.  I wanted to share a couple of them with y'all because I thought they were such great finds!  (to Chris, my parents, my in-laws, and my sister I LOVE my iPad too...I hardly put it down!)

Tonight we are headed out to The Ocean Room at The Sanctuary for a double date with our friends the MacCoys before their baby arrives.  One of the best things about working for Kiawah Island Golf Resort is the employee perks (on top of many other things!).  Chris and I have been very fortunate to win raffle prizes at employee events (golf day, manager's outings, etc.) and this time he won dinner for four at The Ocean Room!  I've been looking over the menu...and honestly I just want a big plate of their yummy sides!  What would you get?!
