What I'm Loving Wednesday...Wedding!

I am loving that Cinderella and Prince Charming are getting married this weekend and I get to be a fairy bridesmaid!

No, in all seriousness it is my FAB! friends Tosca and Brad, but they are getting married at a castle...the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC!  It's going to be magical but better then that Disney kind of way!

These two mean the world to me and I am so happy for them!  I have a special friendship with each of them and am honored they wanted me by their sides on their big day!

Some NYE fun!

Thank God IRENE is going to leave us alone! Can't wait for the fun!  Love you both!

Tail Wagging Tuesday! - Funny Dog

Linking up with my girl c-mae for Tail Wagging Tuesday!  

Today's topic is a funny pic of your furbaby!  As many of you know Gigi is a pretty funny dog so it was hard for me to pick just here they are!

She likes to sleep as close to me as possible at work.  Her bed was there but she thought the desk made a better pillow.  She still does it to this day.  (like right now)

I left animal planet on and came out of the shower and caught her complete hypnotized by the Dog Whisperer
Learning from Caesar

When she was a puppy I had dropped a paper towel roll on the floor and she snatched it up.  She runs all over the house with it and holds it out like she is the leader.  Really funny to watch

 Shih Tzu's love anything they can try to rip up ie: paper.  I caught her in my closest one day with her head inside my Ugg boots trying to get at the sherling inside.

Summer Adventures - Firefly Distillery

Back in May I had made a list (view list here) of tourist things I wanted to do this summer.  Due to a crazy schedule this summer trying to get them done started to become a cloud over my head. But now I get to check one off my list.  Last weekend I had some friends from NJ come into town and a I tried to plan a lovely weekend for them in Charleston since they had never been there before.  We stayed at my favorite place Meeting Street Inn which has a lovely happy hour every day for free and a wonderful free breakfast.  Ask for Darren!

There is a step stool cause the bed is so high!

After arriving we had a great lunch at Amen Street.  I had never been here before and it was FAB!  I had the baked brie and she crab soup.  But the best was my Rum Peach Bellini that was AMAZING!

The Rum Floater totally makes it!

Great on a hot SC day!

We finished up the day shopping, a wine tasting at Charleston Tobacco & Wine and then dinner at the wonderful 39 Rue de Jean.  I had the Mussels in a vegetable cream sauce!  FAB!

The next day my girlfriends from Myrtle Beach met us at the Fresh Market for breakfast crepes! I had the Ham, Salami, Tomato and Cheese crepe and it was beyond great. We completed it with us sharing a Chocolate, Banana & Nutella crepe!

After crepes we were off to the Firefly Distillery!  I love Firefly Sweet Tea vodka and I was so excited to do a little tasting.  Ironically, my College was having an alumni event there and Marcie and I got to see one of our sorority sisters! 

<3 EK!

The Distillery is out in the middle of nowhere but a beautiful drive through the mossy oaks!  There is also a vineyard but word to the not try the wines, stick to the hard stuff!  Its a great place to bring a picnic lunch and just enjoy the nature and all the music and fun happening at the distillery.  I hope you get a feel for it through these pics.  I am going to be out that way again in September and I can't wait to bring D. and just spend the afternoon out there.

Show Us Your Football TEAM!

I am linking up with Lindsey at Running Down a Dream to contribute to her Show us Your Football Team post.  

I am a very big NFL fan.  My girlfriends and I even have our own girls Fantasy Football league "Chicks Who Love Football!"   So needless to say I was completely relieved and excited to hear that the NFL would play on!   I grew up in the suburbs of NJ just outside of the Meadowlands and football is huge there as with any large city.  Growing up we had season tickets to the NY Jets and I have loved watching them ever since, even though we have only won one Superbowl.  But its about the loyality to the team not just if they win or lose.

Last year I was able to take my dad a to game for his 60th birthday at the NEW Meadowlands.  We had a blast!  You can check out the post here!  Hopefully they can pull out a Superbowl this year after going to the AFC Championship two years in a row!  J-E-T-S!  Jets! Jets! Jets!

Dad and I last year!

New Stadium!

Gigi all ready for Game Days!

Adventures in Kayaking

Last weekend D. and I went to Hilton Head/Bluffton to visit his family.  His mom is an AVID kayaker and wanted to bring us out for a morning row? (Is that the term?)  We ended up going up the May River for 3 MILES all around Myrtle Island, which I thought was the perfect place considering we live in Myrtle Beach.  I have to say I held my own, thanks to my friend Molly's boot camp.  It was very peaceful on the water. We didn't see any dolphins, but some birds and really nice homes.  Here are couple of photos.  I really enjoyed it and just wish I didn't live in a condo so I could invest in my own kayak.  Some day....

That's my boat!

All Ready!

Bachelorette...Team JP

YAY for JP!  I was so excited when Ashley picked JP on last night's Bachelorette.  I can't believe I got so sucked into the show.  Don't get me wrong Ben was sweet but JP is a man's man.  He put it best..."She can love two guys but only be in love with one!"  They were so cute on the after show.  And can we talk about that diamond that just blinded you.  Nice job Neil Lane, ABC and JP...

So who is watching Bachelor Pad?  I think I am gonna pass on that one..too much crying!

P.S.  Bentley is a coward!
