A Day Off and 5QF!

Yesterday was my day off for the week and like any other day off during the week, I spent it running errands.

-First up, an oil change at Morris Nissan! I had to do the shameless plug since Cameron's dad and uncle run the show over there. And while I'm doing shameless plugs, Emily's family owns Luxury Cars of Charleston right across the street! :)

-After that, I went grocery shopping for a "few things" and left spending close to $60. How does that happen?!?!

-Next up, I met Cameron at his newly purchased home and we celebrated with mimosas! :) I REALLY want to post all of the pics I took of the house but am thinking maybe I should wait until all of the cleaning/painting/renovations have been completed to do the dramatic reveal of before and afters. Dangit, I wanted to upload a pic of the mimosas, but forgot to bring my cord. :( Oh well, you'll just have to imagine for now..

-Met my Dad for lunch..he's working in my neck of the woods now so it's nice to be able to hang out with him during the week, even if it's just for 30 minutes.

-After that, I headed to North Charleston to my sister's work to find a pair of glasses! I've tried contacts over and over again and they just annoy me! I guess with the type of astigmatism I have, the contacts make lights realllllly blurry, which is not good when I have to drive home at midnight down Bohicket Rd. So, glasses have been ordered! I look like a big nerd, but a picture of them is below. They're tortoise shell and I love them.

On to Five Question Friday..

1. Did you have a pen pal when you were little (or now)? Where were/are they from?

If I did,  #1 I don't remember and #2 it didn't last very long. Unless you count writing notes back and forth in class, then I had lots.

2. If you could do a different job for one day, what would it be?

I would want to do something CSI-ish! I love how finding and using evidence is like putting together a puzzle. 

3. Do you remember your biggest fear from when you were little?

Probably the same as they are now - spiders and snakes.

4. What do you think is a waste of time? Why?

Curling my hair. By time I walk out the door, it's already straight again. So annoying.

5. What is the oldest item you have in your closet?

Probably a garnet pair of pants from Express that I always think I'll wear for yet another year of tailgating. The last time I probably actually wore them was my senior year of college, 4 years ago. 

you know you love it. bottom row, third from the left.
Have a great weekend! Mine will consist of working and most likely, painting. What fun!


  1. i always think I want to do a CSI job, i even know someone who has that job, but then i remember i'm way too impatient. I don't think I would be able to spend hours going over the same small area.

    have a great weekend, came over from the 5 Q friday.

  2. yay, and now you get your glasses for half off! I hope you wear them!

  3. i love the glasses! i always wanted a cute pair but thankfully i dont need them- i came really close to buying a fake pair one time bc that's how cute i think they are- but i realized that would be a little too much and i would probably make fun of myself for doing such a thing. i'm not THAT big of a goober...
