Sorry I haven't updated in a couple weeks; it's been a busy few!
On the 16th, we welcomed a new baby to the family, Quinn Brookelyn. She's a beautiful blonde, just like her cousin Cami! :)
On the 18th, while we were on our way to Michael's to do laundry, Kolin got into a little fender bender. That's what we get for leaving the house, I guess.
Last week, Mom called and told me she was heading my way for a while - SURPRISE! The first day she was here (Wednesday), we just spent the day wandering the streets of Savannah. We ended up on River Street where we stopped at Wet Willie's for a (STRONG) margarita. Needless to say, we had the giggles for a few hours afterward.
Thursday was "Bring Your Mom To Work" day for me. Mom was nice enough to be the star of a promo we were shooting. We ate lunch on the beach:
Friday, Mom was on her own all day, so I gave her The Lovely Bones to read; she liked it so much she took it with her. Once Kolin and I came home, we invited Michael over for a family dinner with Mama:
We had lasagna and it was DELICIOUS! After dinner, we headed to Target, because Mom wanted to buy us some house-warming gifts. She got us a lot of stuff we needed (and some that we wanted ;D). Thanks again, Mom!
All week, we had been watching the weather reports for Saturday diligently, because we were planning on going to the beach. It NEVER said ANYTHING about rain until Saturday morning once it was ACTUALLY RAINING. It was a huge bummer. But we had a fun day anyway. SCAD was having their annual Sidewalk Arts Festival. After we saw everything that the festival had to offer, Kolin joined us for a trolley tour of the city. It was a nice way to end Mom's trip (but I know she would have preferred going to the beach).
Since it rained, it's been sort of chilly in Savannah, but I like it. I got to ride my bike for the first time Tuesday after I epically failed at WOF callbacks - sorry, you won't be seeing me on TV any time soon.
I've been looking for a new job, because I can't afford to drive to Hilton Head and back everyday. I got offered a job at Time Machine, a old-time photography place, but they were only going to pay minimum wage. Yesterday, I had an interview at Grainger Honda for an Internet Coordinator position (making/answering calls, social networking, blogging, video work, etc.), and I'm happy to say I start on May 17th! It comes with great pay, full benefits, paid vacation time, 401k, etc. Oh, and did I mention, it's less than 10 minutes from my apartment - VERY awesome.
