Random post

This is going to be a very random post! I also can't believe it is already Wednesday! Seriously how did that happen? It's a good thing for sure! I think it's funny how some weeks fly by then others are snail speed. I will never understand that one! 

I took this last week on my way to work. It looks like the paper mill is on fire but no it's just the sun rising! I have a slight obsession with sunrises/sunsets! There really is nothing more beautiful in my opinion. 
Hello muscle!! My friend Shannon and I have seriously stepped up our workouts and you can really see a diff. Even my stomach looks different. I had pics BUT I don't feel them completely appropriate for le blog. You can just trust me! It's not alot smaller but it looks so much better! This pic was after spin by the way so it's not like I was all ripped from an arm workout! 
Saturday afternoon Kelly and I headed to the movies to see The Internship. Overall I liked the movie, funny and good acting. I wouldn't suggest paying $10 to see it like I did but def pay $1 at the red box! We were starving after so we went to the Early Bird diner. I love this place BUT I forgot I can't really eat fried foods much anymore. Sooooo when I started in on the chicken tenders I had to stop. It made me really sick even with taking my medicine. So I must remember this for future orders. NO fried food. 
Sunday I went to myrtle beach for the day to shop with my mom, sister and aunt. I think we all really enjoyed ourselves. I enjoy getting to spend time with the fam plus I got a lot of good stuff! Like these awesome bathing suits and that new shirt below. :) for the next 3 months there will be no shopping for me so im glad i got it out of my system now. 

Another sunrise pic! I took it this morning on my way to work! This view NEVER gets old. Moving away and then moving back I definitely appreciate it more than ever. God really has provided me with an amazingly beautiful place to live. I am very grateful!!

Cookout with friends

So saturday I still didn't feel amazing but wanted to do something. My friend was having her house warming party/cookout and I knew I wanted to go regardless. She lives a few minutes from my house so I knew I could go home if need be. Lucky for me the fresh air or just pure luck I started feeling so much better. I even had a few beers and a cheeseburger. I won't lie I was scared to consume them but again I wasn't far from home. We had a great time with amazing people. Lots of food, drinks, laughs, kids playing in the pool/slipnslide, and great weather too! 
Billys beer pool creation! Hah it looks pretty good I won't lie and not all beer. 
My little Izzy doing the slip n slide! She looks like she is doing a plank in the picture. 
All the ladies! We had to get a group shot before people started to leave. They were such a fun group. 
Being silly and I tried to lighten up the picture. Fail. 
Me, Shannon and Dana attempting a good shot haha we took a ton
And why not have a "gangsta" pic?

So after the party we ended up going to a gay club, Pantheon. No offense to the gays but I have never felt so out of place in my entire life. That was just not for me BUT the drag show was definitely interesting to see. All in all a super fun night!!

Edisto "weekend"

Last Monday after work I headed out to Edisto Beach to spend time with family. They live in Greenville so I hardly get to see them. We had a great time spent on the beach! Lots of walks, digging, kite flying and sun bathing! We even had a couple of good storms which were cool to see! 

This guys name was Eddy Stow! How funny is he! 

One of the storms rolling in on Monday night! This one was pretty scary when it got closer to us! 
Nothing like a cold beer on the beach 
Me with my cousin Alicia and her baby Vivian! 
Scott and I took a little adventure to Botany Bay but it was closed! What park closes on Tuesdays?!? So random to me! However we still enjoyed it because we drove down this gorgeous dirt road in the mean time! The trees were absolutely beautiful and it was so shady and comfy. 

Tuesday night we got to see the sunset and got to fly kites! 
Holy windblown hair!!

Scott and I, friends since we were babies! I love that my cousins are my friends too!

How gorgeous is this sunset? The pictures do not do it justice! 

So wednesday I stayed until 1 then headed home to do my laundry, workout and get ready for work the next day. Little did I know but I would be plagued with the worst virus I have ever had. I woke up at 1am and it was downhill from there! Mom ended up staying home with me all day which I am grateful for! I was so weak It hurt to move. She ended up taking me to Nasons medical center. where I got an IV for dehydration, pain meds, nausea meds, and x-rays! Luckily the combo made me feel better and I finally got to get some sleep later. 
I woke up friday got ready for work and still felt SO weak that I stayed home! Even today I am still not 100% but feeling a bit better for sure! This virus wiped out 7 people that I know of from the beach house! Insane right?!? 

Well I was still able to enjoy my weekend despite stomach pain! I'll post more of the weekend in another post!!

Never long enough

I swear the weekends are never long enough. Monday always comes bacn around too quickly. 

Friday after work I finally got some brand new tires!!! Never in my life did I think that would excite me! However when the roads are wet and your tires have no grip it can be scary! So thank you mom and dad for new tires! :) now I can drive safely! 

After that I went over to my friend Shannons for dinner, margaritas, and dying our hair. Over the last year she has done my hair color and even started trimming it for free! She missed her calling with hair trust me! Only bad part of the night was hurting my ankle again. I keep popping it but normally it doesn't swell. Well this time while chasing her little boy around the house it popped, got swollen and even hurt! She wrapped it for me with some frozen rice. Such a great friend :) 

Saturday morning we worked out then I headed out to shop with Kelly. I needed a bathing suit bottom and happened to pick up two awesome new sports bras for $8 a piece. Not too shabby since I will  wear them a TON! Remember I basically workout everyday. 
We had some more time to kill and went by shoe carnival. I fell in love with these shoes. I have needed shoes for a few months now but didn't want to spend the $$. Well I bit the bullet and bought them! They are beyond comfortable and such fun colors! I got to try them out yesterday so I know for sure now that they are awesome. Now I need some fun colored socks to wear with them! 
After the shoe purchase we headed downtown to a Food truck rodeo. It was a cool atmosphere but it was HOT out! It was fun to walk around and see all the trucks, listened to some music, checked out the people, and the tents that sold other items. I had only a beer because it was a bit expensive and I wasn't all that hungry. 

I thought the sign on this truck was awesome! Very original and southern to say the least! 

We headed home after saying hey to a few of her friends. I iced my ankle and we both freshened up to go out to dinner. We went down to Folly to window shop and have dinner at Ritas. I will say one thing people watching on Folly is awesome!!! You see a ton of different people, I loved it! 
The view from our seat was really nice! They had all the windows opened so we got to enjoy the ocean breeze while watching the sunset! 

Sunday I got somethings done like packing, baking protein "cookies", gym, grocery shopping and packing. 

After work today I am headed out to Edisto beach to stay and spend time with some out of town family. I am staying until Wednesday so it will be a nice mini vaca! I just hope the sun shows up and not the rain! :)

From Sullivans to Folly

This past weekend was a ton of fun with lots of vitamin D. First off friday was great! Well minus having a staple go through my thumb at work! 

After work I skipped the gym and went out with Kelly. We went to one of our favorite places, Al Di La. It is northern Italian and absolutely amazing! I got some sangria for my beverage and polenta with eggplant for my dinner! Very tasty if I do say so myself. We finally got to sit on the patio because for once it wasn't hot or cold when we went. We don't go very often because it can be a tad bit pricy. After dinner we went over to VooDoo to get another drink just because it was too early to go home! She  is alcohol free until July so I wasn't going to drink more than 1 alone. That would just be lame. 

Isn't the patio area just perfect?!? Perfect place to people watch too! If I had the $$ I would so move to Avondale. Thats what the area is called and it is so cute! 

So saturday I hit the gym then Kelly and I headed out to the end of Sullivans Island. It was perfect weather and we enjoyed getting to see all the boats and even the shark the guy next to us caught. I should have taken a picture but I obviously didn't think about it. 
Dad I think we need this boat! :) 
The Coast Guard Helicopter! Not sure why but I always like seeing it! I see it a lot too! 
There were fiddler crabs everywhere! I was not a fan of the one that crawled over my foot when I moved my shoes. 

Saturday night I had dinner at my grandmothers house with my aunts. Then met up with my sister at Obrions for a drink. I only planned on one beer but it was ice cold and amazing. So I had to get 2! 

Sunday I hit the gym then my sis and I headed out to Folly Beach. We were there like 10 mins before it started raining. We waited for it to stop then went back out. It was probably 20 mins before it started again so we left! I don't mind getting rained on unless it's freezing cold rain. We did get a few cool pictures though! 

Dad made some steaks for dinner so I got him to throw the veggies on the grill. They were delicious! A little salt, butter and lemon pepper seasoning! 

I definitely had a great weekend! I am hoping next weekend I can go to the beach again but the weather forcast isn't looking so great yet! Darn summer storms!
