Weekend of Champions

I think I would rate this past weekend one of the best since we have moved to Knoxville. It might have something to do with the beautiful weather and us being outside every second. In true Charlotte fashion, we hosted a "Build Your Own" party on Friday night. Apparently this is a new idea for the Knoxville crowd but they LOVED IT!!! We also introduced them to say that it was a hit would be an understatement. We got dough from Brixx and bought way too many toppings and let every have at it. The night was a success and I think we already have a BYO party lined up.

Saturday morning started with our usual walk along with river.
We decided to let O'Malley go for a swim since it was starting to get warm. He raced to the water and jumped right in. We played fetch for a little while and then dragged him out so we could finish our walk. He was one happy dog!We then headed to the courts to see if we still remembered how to play tennis. The rest of the day was spent shopping, washing cars, reading outside, friends and grilling out!

Sunday was the big day...after church and a walk, we got ready for the big golf tournament. Yes, you read that correctly. Mike & I "played" in a new members golf tournament Sunday afternoon and boy was it a gorgeous day. We got paired up with a really fun group so I had a blast getting to know everyone. I did actually swing the club a few times, but mainly just drank and socialized. But let's be honest, my favorite part was riding around looking at all the beautiful homes.
At the end of the evening, I found myself signed up for a women's golf league- comical, I know! They have promised me that it's mainly a social time with some golf lessons involved. I'm all for meeting new people and making my hubs think I might play golf with him one day. I don't think I have the patience to be a golfer but we will see. It was a great end to the weekend. I finally feel like solid friendships have been made and we continue to be blessed with new ones. Hopefully this weekend was an indication of the great spring and summer ahead! Feel free to visit us anytime in Knoxville...and play some golf with my hubs.
