Kind Bars

Have any of you tried the Kind bars? I have tried them before but just tried the Dark Chocolate Nut and Sea Salt one yesterday. Holy amazeballs! I pretty much inhaled it; it was that good. They are delicious, and I am anxious to get back to the grocery store to buy a box another few bars. I ate it as a snack at work to get through to lunch and that it did! I have always steered away from protein bars because they just taste gross. But, Kind has got it going on though!

What are some that y'all like?

Kind has no idea who I am; this post was not sponsored, however if Kind wants to send me a box or 2, I'll gladly take them! 



Happy Friday!

Wishing I was here having cocktails out on the dock!

We are headed to Aiken this weekend to celebrate Father's Day with my father in law.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend with their Dads.



Floppin' Flounder 5K -- Race Recap

This race was better than last year. mainly because I beat my time by over 3 minutes. Was I happy with it? No. My official time was 33:53. It was an all flat road race on the island. The last 5K I ran was back in April; it was a hilly course, and I ran it in 32:02. See my disappointment? I think the humidity just killed me. I was glad I did it but not happy with my time. It makes me ready to run another. It is a battle with myself.

And my horrible splits....

Hope y'all have a great Monday! Hoping they post race pics soon!



Five on Friday


Hey y'all! It's FINALLY Friday! Has this week not just totally drug by!? I think so. Now only if the weekend will go by like molasses I'll be doin' just fine.

{1} International Delight Southern Butter Pecan creamer...Y'ALL! If you are a coffee drinker; add this to your grocery list for this week because you need to try it. I have been enjoying it since Thanksgiving 2013 & haven't looked back. It's amazing. Trust me. 

{2} Is it just me or is it baby season?! Holy Moly. Every social media platform I am on is flooded with baby announcements, more so than engagements I think. I don't know what it is but there are lots of babies! Must be something in the water! Watch out girls. ;)

{3} I am running my second Floppin Flounder 5K tomorrow, and I am pretty excited. 2 of my very best girlfriends are running it for the first time and so is my husband. I am pumped and looking to beat my horrible slow time from last year. Just praying that the humidity is easy on me. If any of my readers are there, be sure to say hi!

{4} I am very interested in getting a Fiddle Leaf Fig for our house; however, I have heard they are super temperamental, and you really have to be careful with them because they aren't cheap. Does anyone have one? Can you tell me how you keep yours alive?

{5} Not only is today Friday, but it's also NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY! I think Krispy Kreme's are the best. Hands down. Don't even try to argue with me, mmkay?! Just kidding; I will say the Dunkin' has some dang good coffee! Make sure to go get your free doughnut and maybe buy one extra for later. ;)

Hope y'all have a great weekend! 



What do you want to know?!

Hey everyone! I have been in a slump lately with blogging so I'd like to hear from you! What do you want to see hear? What do you want to know about me?

Let me know. I am pretty much an open book so give me some ideas!

Have a great Wednesday!!


And because it's Wednesday...


The weekend is over?!

I can't believe the weekend is over. It felt like it lasted a while but then again so quick. Our June is really ramping up so I know everything is going to fly by!

Friday night we stayed in and cooked pizza on the Big Green Egg. It has become one of our favorite things to cook since we get to pick and choose what toppings we want, etc. It was DELICIOUS as always.

Saturday we spent the first half of the day in the backyard planting azaleas and hydrangeas. Our back beds needed some work. They are all clay so Brian had the duty of digging the holes and I filled with garden soil and planted. We also laid down weed cloth (I know that's not right, but that's what I call it) to keep the weeds from coming up and to make everything look nice and neat before we added mulch. It was a lot of work but I am so much happier with it. It beats that nasty red clay.

We rested and went out for date night at Roost that night and had a great dinner and of course dessert: fried apple pocket with cinnamon & a scoop of maple bacon ice cream. It really needed 2 scoops. You can't skimp on ice cream, y'all. Doesn't it look great? We walked around downtown Greenville afterwards. It was so pretty out, and we needed to walk off all that food. 

I saw this cute sign too outside The Chocolate Moose. Their sister store is Cupcake in Mt. Pleasant.

Le duh. 

And then to finish off the weekend, Mr. Gopher enjoyed my hydrangeas...as long as he doesn't knock off blooms...I'm okay with it. Those things are DELICATE, y'all. 

We are off to Charleston this weekend to see friends, run the Floppin' Flounder 5K, and celebrate Father's Day early with my Dad. 

Hope y'all have a fabulous week!
