May 2015

Matt’s Birthday Month and Birthday Dinner: We kicked off the beginning of this month with my favorite persons 26th birthday because his birthday is literally May 1st, or May Day as some call it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Each year his birthday falls right before or right on The Kentucky Derby which is fun because we usually have a family birthday dinner and watch The Derby during the birthday festivities. We also make the birthday cake that I invented especially for him appropriately named Derby Pie Cake since he loves Derby Pie and is born right around the famous Run For The Roses. ๐Ÿ™‚

Heres this years birthday cake for my birthday man! Matt's requested this cake every year since I first concocted it just for him! We only indulge in it once a year too because I've vowed only to make it for my May Day Man on his birthday. It's his own little special slice of Kentucky Heaven that comes around once a year. :)

Carrieli got Matt the greatest gift a bunch of the old movies that they used to watch together growing up as kids! We have been taking a walk down memory lane during our at home movie date nights by watching them together. :)

Visiting Lexington and Catching Up With Friends: We did a lot of traveling this month in our family, starting with a trip to Lexington. While we were down there we got to have dinner with some of our dearest friends in the world, our Happily Hitched Family. It was so good to see the couples that are still living in the Lexington area because since we all met when we were young and newly wed most of us moved away, included us, beginning in the summer of 2013. It’s amazing though how when God brings a group of people together it does not matter the amount of distance between them because the Holy Spirit still binds His church together, and that is exactly what this group has reflected. The miles may increase but we still all talk on a regular basis (Thanks Facebook lol), support and pray for one another during life struggles and encourage and rejoice with one another during life’s momentous moments.

The girls at one of our favorite spots in town Canes! It really was such a treat to see them.. and eat fried chicken with them as well lol

Opening The Pool and Preparing For Summer: I can’t take any credit for how amazing our yard and pool looks. Really all the praise should go to Matt because he’s the one who made it his personal mission to take our back yard and turn it into Pomeroy Paradise as we call it. All I can claim is the enjoyment of it because it’s pretty much heaven on earth for all of us, Kirby-Girl and Dixie-Chick included lol!

This is where we'll be all summer long if you need us! :)

Game Nights, Picnics and Baby Showers With Friends: There was the usual hang outs, pizza parties and game nights with our usual favorite people in the area as well as a couple of group picnics at the park on Sunday’s after church and a Baby Shower for our sweet friends Ashely and Casey Kennedy who are expecting their first child in the beginning of July! We are so excited for them and know that baby Kennedy is super blessed to have those two as his parents because they are both such kind, wise people who love The Lord and each other deeply. ๐Ÿ™‚

First game night in the Pomeroy home!

Home Improvement Projects: We also did a couple quick, easy and inexpensive updates to our little fixer upper of a home this month! We updated the fixtures on our kitchen cabinets and created a cute little cozy coat nook in the entryway/foyer of our Old Kentucky Home! Which we will be posting more about later on! ๐Ÿ™‚

Our cabinets when we were about half way through the process! The gold fixtures of the left were the old ones and the silver ones of the right are the new ones!

Girls Brunch: A couple Saturdays ago I had some of my closest friends over for a Saturday brunch and pool day. These women have been in my life since I was 10 years old and make up some of the closest, long standing friendships in my life. It was so much fun to have them over and spoil each of them with yummy homemade brunchie dishes and a beautiful summer day spent by the pool!

Memorial Day Weekend Trip to Sewickley, PA: This year for Memorial Day we took a fun weekend trip up to Sewickley, PA to see our Aunt B, Uncle Doug and cousins Emily, Ciara and Savannah. Emily just got back from studying abroad in Spain this past semester and Ciara and Savannah just finished their Freshman year of college! So it was really great to get to hear all about their adventures in person! It was such a great weekend full of sunshine, summer breezes, laughs, smiles and some of the best conversations spent on the patio together.

Some of the best people to make memories with in our opinion! We love our family!

Day trip to Elizabethtown and Lexington: We ended the month with a fun day trip to Elizabethtown where we met our brother John and nieces Mary and Evie for lunch and some good quality family time! Then we went to Lexington and spent the afternoon strolling the streets eating Savv’s Chill Ice Cream, a favorite that is only served there. Then we picked up some Cane’s Chicken, another favorite that for now is only in Lexington, and went to the farm to spend a little quality time with our MomPom and sister Carrieli.

Mmmmmm Savv's Chill! Only way it could get any better is if The Clones were with us! :)

Well that pretty much sums up our Marvelous Month of May! Hope yours was just as grand as ours was!

Much love & prayer,

Matt & Blair
