Scenes From The Weekend

Happy September, Everyone!!! 
Pretty sure August is my least favorite month of the year. If it weren't for college football starting that month, it could just disappear. 

Speaking of college football, it's here! Brad & I drove to Columbia, SC to visit my mom and go to the first Gamecock game. My spirit was crushed within the first 10 minutes of the game, and it got worse from there. But nonetheless, we had a great time!

If you're ever in Columbia, you MUST get a cheeseburger from Rush's. Seriously. So good. I prefer it over In and Out any day of the week.

My friend, John Daly & I went to Carolina Ale House in the Vista on our last night in Columbia. It has a great rooftop bar that would be divine in October. In August, it's pretty friggin hot up there. Note: This city is the armpit of the south. It is hot & steamy to say the least. 

When Brad & I got back to Wilmington Saturday, we went to our local Farmer's Market & picked up some fresh goodies. How pretty are these pineapples? 
Because it's now September, I felt the need to celebrate by pulling out my deer mugs. I mean, let's face it- it's September, meaning it's pretty much fall, meaning Christmas is right around the corner. This makes me a very happy girl!

While in Columbia, I visited about 10 antique / consignment stores. I was hoping to score majorly, but I was pretty disappointed overall. Not the best shopping in the armpit of the south. I did find a few pretty brass objects & a pretty picture, however. 

My Labor Day was spent laboring. I spent about 6 hours cleaning every nook and cranny of my little bungalow. There's no better feeling than a clean house. 

Hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend!! Back to the grind today...

  1. My husband was at that game too and wasn't a very happy camper afterwards! We're actually getting a Carolina Ale House in Charleston soon. So was John Daly really at the restaurant?!

    1. He was! He was there promoting his new vodka cocktails. :)
