How I Spent My Day Off Yesterday.

Woke up while Cameron was getting ready for work.

Back to sleep until 10.


Met Emily at the fabric store.

Went downtown and ate at Midtown. Split the buffalo chicken sandwich with blue cheese coleslaw on top. YUM.

Popped into a consignment store and walked out with a pair of like-new J.Crew shorts for $17. SCORE! They're grey chino's with white polka dots. Love!

Discovered a new (new to me, but apparently it's been there over a year) clothing store downtown that is SUPER cute called Haute Hanger. Too bad I missed their Groupon deal last week. Emily did not miss it, however, and basically got a $40 credit to the store for free! She walked away with a super cute maxi dress for only $12 out of pocket!

Drove back to Emily's house where she taught me how to make my very first skirt! I immediately texted my mom demanding asking if I could borrow her sewing machine. Next up, a maxi dress! Then pillows!

Then after Cameron got home from work, we went on a booze cruise with his parents and a large group of their friends!

While on the boat, I was refreshing my phone every five seconds to update the score of the USC / Virginia baseball game. It turned out to be a 13 inning nailbiter and the Gamecocks coming away with the WIN! On to the Championship versus Florida! Bring it Gators!
The winning run! source
Went to bed a happy camper.
