What We've Been Up to Lately

I realize I've been MIA for a LONG time. We've been busy and truth be told I just haven't felt like blogging lately :) Apparently 2009 has been THE year to get married because we have been invited to 6 weddings so far.

A couple of weeks ago Rob's good friend, Jason, and his fiance, Kim, had a beach wedding in Destin, FL. We were so excited for this wedding and to visit with a lot of old friends that we hadn't seen in a few years. I had never been to a beach wedding before so I didn't really know what to expect. But it was so gorgeous and fun. Here is a pic of us on the beach after the ceremony....too bad Brady's not looking.

Then the following weekend we headed to B'ham to see Austin & Melissa get hitched! We had a blast on this trip. Their wedding was also on my birthday which made it even more special. Here's a pic of the new Dr. & Mrs. Cox! Austin is a good friend of Rob's from pharmacy school.

Here's a pic of Rob & I. Rob served as a groomsman, that's why he's all dolled up in a tux. Thank you to Britni, for helping my fashion-challenged self find a dress the DAY OF the wedding!

You will never believe what happened in our house earlier this week.....
a SNAKE (the one above) slithered it's way into our house from, get this, the BATHTUB DRAIN! Yes, that's right it came out of the bathtub drain, I saw it with my own eyes. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. On Sunday afternoon I walked into the spare bathroom to throw something away and out of the corner of my eye I saw something slip down the tub drain very quickly. I only caught a glimpse of it, but thought it looked like a big slug. However, it moved so fast I knew it couldn't be that. So I convinced myself that it was a roach of some sort, got some bleach, poured it down the drain and closed it up. That gave me the heebie jeebies, but down here in this heat we've been known to have some random bugs crawl out of our drains before.

The next night I gave Brady his bath like normal and not thinking, left the drain open overnight. Tuesday morning I went into the bathroom to grab a tissue and about DIED when I saw a snake in the tub! It was sticking out of the drain a good 12 inches. My initial reaction was to reach in there and close the drain so it couldn't escape, but it's tail end was still inside the drain. I ran out to the family room where Rob was sleeping on the couch and was hysterical. He jumped off the couch and went to take a look, but the snake had gotten scared and went back down the drain. Rob could only see his head peering out the drain. He ran to the garage to find something to kill it with and came back with some pliers and a screwdriver. He poured more bleach down the drain hoping to either kill it that way or get it to come back out. It eventually slithered its way back out into the tub and Rob killed it. Snake blood was all over the tub. Eww! Now I'm constantly checking the tub drains to make sure they're closed. I also look VERY closely in the toilet before I sit down! I seriously can't believe this happened. I had heard of stuff like this, but always thought it was more of an urban legend. It better NEVER happen again or I'm moving back to Ohio whether we sell the house or not!
