Memorial Day weekend 2013

Man I don't know about you guys but I had a great weekend! Started it off by leaving work early friday! That alone was a good thing! I hung out with my friend Shannon. We worked out then she made a very yummy chicken dinner with spaghetti squash and homemade margaritas!! Delicious!! 

Panko crusted chicken, spaghetti squash, capers, mushrooms and garlic! Yum!!!! 

Saturday was BUSY! Woke up and headed out to Folly for a little bit of sun. It was actually a little chilly so that part wasn't fun. It got warm right before we were leaving. 
My new coverup! I LOVE this thing! Cute and comfy! 

After the beach I headed up to the creek for Norrissias baby shower for the twins! It was really nice! Good food and great conversations! She got a bunch of really nice things for the girls too! 

They had fishies on the tables! A fun idea! 
Seriously she looks great for being 30 weeks with twins!! All belly which I know she is happy about! 

So later that evening I celebrated my friend Ashleys birthday! Her bday is sunday so she got the whole weekend :) 

We met up and went to Kicken Chicken downtown on King Street. We had a great group of ladies and it was nice to just sit back and relax with a coldish beer. We sat on the patio and it was perfect! 
After dinner we went to Theatra 99 on Meeting Street for a comedy show called TheHaveNots! This was my first comedy show ever and I thought it was pretty good. However, I did expect to laugh a little bit more. It takes a lot for me to think somethings funny though! 
We went to Yogurt Mountain after the show. It looked good but I saved myself the calories since I really didn't want any. 
Here are the ladies! The birthday girl is to the far left! 

Sunday was chill. Gym then hung with Kelly a little bit. I didn't feel great since the new medicine thats helped me is $78 and I couldn't refill it. Figures! 

Monday Shannon and I did a good workout then we headed to my old apartment to swim! My roomie met us there obviously and it was nice. A bit cold for my liking and too many kids but still fun. 

Later we did a bbq at her house which was delicious!! Since the weather was so great we ate outside! Her little boy decided he wanted to swim again! Twice in one day! 


This weekend really was a ton of fun!! Spent with great people and lots of yummy food!! Thank goodness there was no weight gainage! Haha 

And lets not forget the reason to celebrate! I am very thankful for those who have given their lives to protect ours!  You guys/gals rock!!

Beautiful dt day

On saturday after a killer workout shannon and I headed downtown with her little boy! It was such a beautiful day! The weather could not have been any better! We put our toes in the pineapple fountain along with a ton of other people! I hope they keep chemicals in there at all times! We listened to some music and wished we were on the Carnival ship docked near the Battery. Days like this make me love Charleston so much! It really is such a beautiful city to live in.

Donating Blood

So last Friday the Red Cross came to my job and I decided to go donate. It has been around 2 years I believe since I last gave. Lets just say it was not a good experience and involved me turning very white in the process! So after 2 years I decided to try one last time. I am so glad I did because it went great! It wasn't painful and made me feel great that I was doing something positive to help someone who needs it! I think this may become a more frequent thing since they come to my work every couple of months. Not to mention they give us 4 hours off for the day to "recover". I don't hate it :). A little added incentive if you will! I encourage you all to at least try it once! It's worth it!

Mothers Day

I am a little late with this one since Mothers day was yesterday but hey im late with all my posts! I really want to be better about them just because it is technically my journal. Anyways. 

Saturday night we went out to Folly to the Sandbar for an early mothers day dinner. The food was really good and the place was really neat. They all got fried shrimp and I got shrimp and grits. Which will also be my lunch for today. 

Fun fact: my mom used to work there back in the day and apparently the place hasn't really changed much. The bathroom still had pink tile which you know is old school. I thought it was kinda cool though because it is so different from any place you can go now. 

It's rare for us to all go out but I always enjoy it. I love my family and I am so blessed to have them! 
Dad and Mom at dinner :)
Shannon, Lola and Isabelle! It took a few tries to get both of the girls looking at me with a smile. 
Shannon and I, wish it turned out a little clearer. 
Mommy and Izzy! Such a cute picture! 
Mmmmmmm my shrimp and grits!! Delicious!!

Mommy and me! Anyone notice all the stripes yet? Haha and no it was not on purose. 

So sunday my dad cooked 2 boston butts for dinner and mom made the sides. They were awesome!! I LOVE bbq so this meal definitely made me happy!! I just realized I had 2 yummy dinners in a row! Lucky me! The fat girl inside was happy haha 
My aunt and her fiance made the cake above. They are practicing for making their wedding cake. Lets just say they are going to keep practicing! It wasn't bad in my opinion but it def wasn't amazing! However, it was really pretty they did a good job on that part. 

I hope you all had a great mothers day and weekend!! 

Mommy I love you very much and am so thankful for all you are!! You are a great role model and I will always look up to you!!!

Baseball season

Friday night Kelly and I decided we would hang out. We are the worst at deciding what we are going to do! She had the idea to head to a Riverdogs game and it was a great idea. Normally i'm not that into the game but for whatever reason this game really kept my attention. We won 8 to 1 and they played really well. It probably helped that the other teams pitcher kinda sucked. Although according to the old man in front of us he was great! Eh im not going to argue with him! I know what I saw haha 

We ended up sitting in between two groups of people. The ones to our left were super nice and into small talk. The people to our right were drunk! Haha they were entertaining and I ended up with a free beer so I won't complain. 
I love watching the color guard. MERICA! Haha 
It was such a great night for baseball. The weather was absolutely perfect!! 

Charlie the Riverdog
Me and my free beer!! Blue moon :) yumm!!
And of course some silly pictures of us! 

Look im a baseball player!!

Every friday they do fireworks after the game. It's always a really pretty show. This one actually caught one of their signs on fire! We were surprised at first we thought our eyes were messing with us!

What stinks though is I prob won't go again for awhile because soon Charleston will be HOT!! But we shall see!

Sistas b-day

About 2 weeks ago we celebrated my sister Shannons birthday! We had a very fun girls night out with some awesome ladies! We started out at The Wild Olive for dinner. I only had wine which was delish. I have been dealing with stomach issues so I just ate before I left. After there we went to Jpaulz for drinks! They have some verrrrry good margaritas so I got that. We talked and laughed for a few hours. I treasure times like that because they are the moments that matter. Great women great conversations lots of laughs equal an amazing evening!! Truly blessed to have people like that in my life! 

Seeeee isn't that pretty!! Delish!!
