Mountain Weekend

Hello my bloggies! Sorry I have been MIA a bit. I hope you all had a great weekend and good start to the week.

I had a FULL weekend. My weekend started last Thursday. I drove myself up to Greenville after work on Thursday. Brian and I did pizza dinner and then crashed! I had NO voice and was so tired. Well, I woke up at 3AM and so did Brian so we watched tv. Then I woke up at 6AM and was wide awake from then on. I guess I was so excited for our mountain weekend to begin.

We got up and had breakfast together and then got on the road. We picked up our friends and were on our way. The weekend was great. We had a fun time relaxing, being touristy, and re-living a bit of our college days.

It was a long weekend, but it was so much fun! We had a blast. Sunday was a drag because we drove back to Greenville, and then I was in the car driving myself back to Charleston for another 3.5 hours.

Anyways, I have been exhausted and trying to keep up with work this week. It has been SUPER busy.

I hope to share some exciting and big news with y'all tomorrow. So y'all stay tuned!

Have a great week!



Laryngitis Attack!

And just like that, I've got hardly a voice. This too shall pass. Hope I don't completely lose it over my mountain weekend! :) I can't even stand it any longer. I am SO ready to get up to Greenville tomorrow night and then Gatlinburg on Friday!

I hope y'all have a wonderful Thursday. My weekend starts tomorrow, and I could not be more thrilled.


*Sorry for the super thrilling (not!) post. I don't have anything too exciting but maybe some announcements come next week!


Four Days!

We will be heading to Gatlinburg, TN. I am SO excited to spend it with my boo and 4 other awesome people. We are leaving first thing from Greenville on Friday morning. I cannot wait. The boo and I need a getaway. Hope y'all have a fab week!


Can't Wait!!!

I can't wait to see this handsome little boy on Saturday. I may just steal him for the weekend; although, his momma would be too sad. Instead, I will be stealing kisses from him. Can't wait to get all my best friends together for lunch!!

Tomorrow is Friday!! Have a good one!



If you know me...

... then you know I love roly poly babies!
Just ask my friends.
How cute is this picture?!

The beau has spoken...

The beau has finally sat down and answered some questions. I hope y'all enjoy. I stole this idea from Sarah from Classy and Fabulous. Check her out! She s quite witty and gives it to you straight. Love her blog!

What do you remember about the first time you remember seeing her-before you knew her?

  • I remember thinking how gorgeous you were and how I thought you would never go for a guy like me. I was immediately attracted to her…since she had a great smile, personality, and a great body ;).

How did you first approach her – before you knew you were going to ask her out?

  • Well I honestly, wasn’t planning on approaching her until I got word from some mutual friends that she thought I was “cute” (hot or sexy would have been a better word, but I gladly took that complement) and thought I might look into this girl and seeing if we might have some chemistry. I remember being at my best friend’s house telling him about her and while I was over there I asked for her number and got it…which meant she was wanting some Marozas. We ended up going out with friends and had a really good time and unfortunately soon after she had to leave for Spain for what seemed like forever...but not too long after she got back I “asked her out” and we’ve been together ever since.

How did you ask her out for the first time?

  • Don’t know if I actually asked her out per say. We knew we were both attracted to each other and we kinda started off on the wrong foot but we eventually found out that we had a lot in common and we were both extremely weird. I used to think she was just a pretty girly girl...she’s definitely more than that.

What were you thinking on the first date? Any specific details that you remember?

  • I was super super nervous…hadn’t seen her in months and we really just talked to each other for a few months and had no kind of physical interaction. She would tell you that she thought I ate like a bird…but it was because I was soo nervous…in reality I eat like a beast. I remember we had spaghetti and she ragged me for the longest time because I told her I was going to get a salad recipe for dinner…I felt stupid after I thought about it. We had some wine and at first we were both very awkward…I wanted to hold her and kiss her but I didn’t want to be forward. She was beautiful and had my blood pressure going through the roof along with my heart rate.

What is the most memorable outfit she has worn in your presence?

  • She had me when I saw her wear this white dress at a party…she was hotttt. Of course I like seeing her in her bathing suits…not looking forward to the day she wears one-pieces though.

What is the weirdest thing you’ve done together?

  • Hmmm…we have had some strange conversations almost on a daily basis…
What is her most annoying habit?

Most…how about a nice list ;)

  • Forgets to say please when asking me or others to do things
  • Critiques a lot of things
  • Clears her throat after every other drink of something
  • When she uses up the toilet paper she will not replace with a new roll
  • Hogs the bed
  • Messes with her phone ALL THE TIME…even in the company of friends or while driving

What are her best and worst domestic attributes?

  • Best-has desire to clean and cook (very picky about how she cooks however-don’t add anything to what she prepares)

  • Hogs the bathroom with her stuff…hides my things in cabinets without me knowing. She is Satisfied with just plain biscuits in the morning…a man’s gotta eat and biscuits and jelly won’t give this growing boy any protein or energy.

What is your fondest memory with Haley?

  • Going to Cozumel with her was awesome…we had a good time and experienced a lot of things for the first time together…I can’t wait for us to go on our next trip.
And the scariest?
  • Well, I remember vividly and probably will never forget…finishing up dinner at the Blue Marlin in Columbia and I pulled out of the parking lot and did not see the median…I went over it and in a panic backed up and all the while a car was heading straight for us aimed right at Haley’s side of my car and I quickly shifted into drive and slammed my foot on the pedal before we were hit by the oncoming car…Haley gave a death scream as though she was going to die…my heart almost exploded in my chest I was soo scared…I hate just thinking about it.

How did you first learn about her blog? What was your initial reaction?

  • Well she talked about it all the time and I was curious as to what was mentioned about me…sometimes when we were having tough times I would check it out to see how she was feeling about me at the time or sometimes I would check it just to hopefully see some good positive stuff about me…which there is plenty of now. My initial reaction was “Well theres some good things in this blog about me” I then went into her archives and saw stuff about old boyfriends…I learned that wasn’t the best idea and that I needed to focus on us.

He does give it to you straight, right? That is why I love him! Hope y'all got some good laughs out of this. I sure did. I am definitely not perfect... and he showed you that. :)

Happy Hump Day, y'all!




Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. My day was good. The beau and I already celebrated our Valentine's this past weekend. It was wonderful; we did what we wanted, when we wanted. We went out with friends on Friday for dinner and drinks. Saturday, he cooked me one of my favorite breakfasts (hashbrown casserole) and then we went and walked around downtown and grabbed lunch. We also had to make a stop at my favorite gelato shop. 2 scoops for $5.35... it's totally worth it. I mean, it's not here in CHS, and I don't get it every time I'm in Greenville. That is my way of saying it's OK to pay that much for 2 scoops. We had dinner at a great place called Saskatoon's. It is a restaurant that serves a wide variety of wild game. It's not too fancy, but the prices are. I still got dressed up as did the beau. We had a wonderful weekend together. It was just what I wanted/needed.

My gorgeous tulips... I am not a roses girl. My man knows me well.

Dark Chocolate Mousse with brownie crust... yum!

Happy Valentine's Day, boo!



In the swamp tonight...

Y'all, I LOVE Swamp People! Do any of you watch? It is one of my favorite shows!

And my 2 favorites of the show...


... & Bruce!

Call me crazy, but I'm obsessed with this show!
Hope y'all had a great Thursday.



Stay Tuned!

This man...


has agreed to a blog interview!

I am sure it will provide some entertainment for all of you.

Stay tuned!




Super Bowl Sunday

What are y'alls plans for watching the Super Bowl? I am ready to have some good food and socialize with my girlfriends and maybe watch the game? I'm not big on the NFL. However, I'm going to pull for the New York Giants today. I am not a fan of Tom Brady; I think he is a bit cocky. Anyways, I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday and may the best team win.

Happy Ground Hog Day!

Will Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow? I am thinking that Spring is here! I hope. Our temperatures have been super mild! Bring on the warm weather. I love it.

Did you know?
  • A groundhog's life span is normally 6 to 8 years. Phil receives a drink of a magical punch every summer during the annual Groundhog Picnic, which gives him 7 more years of life.

  • The average groundhog is 20 inches long and normally weighs from 12 to 15 pounds. Punxsutawney Phil weighs about 20 pounds and is 22 inches long.


Old Navy's got it goin' on...


A lot of times Old Navy is hit or miss. This Spring, their stuff looks awesome. I'm resisting spending my paycheck there. However, I did get myself a little something while picking up some Valentine's goodies for the beau.

I paired this with a high-waisted black skirt and black heels and pearls for work today. I know it will be super cute with with skinnies and flats.

What clothes are y'all lusting over with all these great spring temps?!


It's that month...

February is a month of love!
Enjoy it!
Happy February 1st!
