Busy Weekend.

Good Monday morning and Happy Veteran's Day!

Things have been quite busy around here, which explains the lack of posting. Let's get caught up, shall we?

Thursday after work, we took our annual girls' trip to the fair. We don't ride rides (well, except for the ferris wheel) or pet the animals in the petting zoo - we go to eat. And eat we did.

Corn dogs
Fiske fries
Fried mushrooms
Fried oreos
Fried twinkies
Red velvet funnel cake
Regular funnel cake

As a matter of fact.

Friday I had the day off, so what did I decide to do? Help set up for a wedding. Christmas is coming up, people! Any extra income is a good thing! The ceremony and reception were held at the Legare Waring House and my friend, Stephanie, was their planner. She owns her own company here in Charleston called SweetGrass Events.

Saturday, I had to work an oyster roast that my department threw for our property owners. It was held at Rhett's Bluff, which is where our property owners launch their boats. It turned out to be an awesome event with perfect weather. An event I was really proud to be involved in the planning process!

Sunday, we went to Baby Ashton's dedication at church, visited Cameron's grandmother, went grocery shopping, cleaned the house, then went to eat a yummy Fall inspired dinner at my parents' house! Butternut squash soup, brussel sprouts, potato gratin, pork tenderloin, and peach cobbler! SO good.

And my mom just texted me asking why I was so quiet at dinner last night. This is why, mom. :)

  1. We went to the fair yesterday and only rode the Ferris wheel and one that spins you around. After those 2 we all realized we don't like rides anymore and were content eating and walking around the rest of the time. The fair isn't the same as when you're younger! The oyster roast decorations are so gorgeous! I love how the palmetto tree looks with the lights! Fun busy weekend!

  2. i want oysters. like now. and fried oreos for dessert.

  3. Gorgeous! I think I miss oysters the most, of all the food items from Charleston.
