Wordless Wednesdays

University of South Carolina
2010 Baseball National Champions

Monday, June 28, 2010


Tonight is Game 1 of 3 in the College World Series Championship! University of South Carolina (wooooooohooooooo!!!) vs. UCLA. Saturday night we beat our instate rival, Clemson, to make it to the championship. The last time USC made it to the championship was in 2002, where they were beat by Texas so yeah, it's a pretty big deal.

My parents and two other families rented a beach house on Folly for the week so I'll be watching the game there tonight (or at a near by bar if the house doesn't have ESPN for some crazy reason). Tomorrow a few girl friends will be joining me to work on our tans and to also celebrate my Mom's **th birthday (like how I hid your age, Mom? haha)

As I mentioned in my previous post, I went to a wedding Saturday night so here are some pics!

Cute pic of the groomsmen's jackets hanging from the tree. 95* and an outside reception! Hot Tamale!

Herrrrrrrre Fishy Fishy Fishy!

Thursday started the 3rd round of the South Carolina Governor's Cup Billfishing Series. It's made up of 5 different tournaments all over the state of South Carolina and it's a LOT of fun!

Cameron caught and released a sailfish, which put the Major Motion on the board with 200 points! Today is the last day of the tournament and a blue marlin is what we really want (600 points)!

Here are some pictures from Thursday night (from the tournament website):

Tonight we'll be heading to a wedding..actually it's my 11th grade boyfriend's wedding..Not weird though! I really like his fiance and they are really close with my parents. Should be a good time!

Oh, and I almost forgot! Carolina plays Clemson again tonight in the College World Series! We (Carolina, obvi) beat Clemson last night 5-1 and we play them again tonight at 8:00pm. HUGE rivalry, HUGE game. Me (Carolina) + Cameron (Clemson) = House Divided. It can get interesting. The winner goes on to play in the championship game vs. the winner of tonight's TCU / UCLA game! Will definitely be checking from my phone tonight at the wedding. GO COCKS!!

Boulevard Diner

Last Monday night, myself and 4 girls from work went and ate at Boulevard Diner for our monthly Girls Night Out. It's nothing too wild and crazy but it's nice to hang out outside of work and talk about non-work related stuff (but let's be serious, we just wind up talking about people at work anyway).

I had been craving a fried green tomato (I cheated on my Fried Green Pickles, I know) for quite some time so I decided on the Fried Green Tomato & Pimento Cheese Sandwich. My roommate, Katie, is a pimento cheese freak, but I personally don't see what the big deal is. I tried it on my sandwich anyway and was glad I did! Otherwise, it would have just been 2 FGT's and some toast. I channeled my inner Xtina and took a pic before I took a bite:

Weekend of Celebrations!

This weekend was a very eventful one! Worked a rehearsal dinner Friday night, wedding on Saturday then Sunday was of course Father's Day and also Cameron's 26th Birthday!
This picture is a little dark and hard to see, but I had to climb up on an 11 ft ladder to hang these paper lanterns. This is usually discouraged at my job because I'm not technically supposed to be this hands on, but I got permission from my boss to be the bride & grooms day-of-coordinator since they were on a tight budget. The bride was super appreciative and it made me feel really good to help her our! Congratulations Sally & Daniel! :)
Sunday was Father's Day and also my boyfriend, Cameron's, 26th birthday! We celebrated by having my family come over to Cameron's parent's house on Johns Island to hang by the pool during the day and had a fish fry for dinner. Yum! Last Monday was Cameron's sister-in-law's birthday and this Saturday is Cameron's brother's birthday so we also celebrated their birthday's, as well.
Here are a few pics that my mom took yesterday..

My mom caught my sister & I being nice to each other

Cameron, D4 & Kara blowing out their birthday candles (sorry so blurry)

Don't laugh - I painted this picture for Cameron as one of his gifts. It was my first attempt at painting and he said he likes it (he's smart).

Today after work, I'm going to Boulevard Diner with the work girls! Never been, but I've been to their other restaurant, Mustard Seed, which I L-O-V-E. My friend, Christina, is pretty much obsessed with this group of restaurants. Will let you know how it was tomorrow!

D - Dog's name: Brady!

E - Essential start your day item: hitting the snooze button 2-3 times and coffee once I get to work.

F - Favorite color: teal

G - Gold or Silver: depends on what I'm wearing. most of the time I just wear my David Yurman jewlery so I can wear both!

I - Instruments you play(ed): Not many people know this about me, but I actually played the trumpet in 7th grade. Cool, I know.

L - Living arrangements: Have lived with the same 2 girls in Charleston for the past 2.5 years. Katie, who I went to college with and was in the same sorority with, and Jenna, our random Craigslist roomie, who we love :) Katie got engaged over Easter so we'll all be splitting up next April..excited to see where we will all live next!

M - Mom's name: Her real name is Mary but she goes by Donnie (middle name is Donnelly).

N - Nicknames: Schmeg - given to me by a sorority sister with a large vocabulary. It's really gross, actually.

O - Overnight hospital: Once. In 2nd grade I was walking down the street to my "boyfriends" house. Showed up to the bf's house crying and not making sense so his parents called my parents. Turns out I had a concussion. It had recently rained so my parents think I may have slipped and hit my head.

Wordless Wednesdays

Ok, so this is my first blog. I have been stalking numerous ones of people I know and people I don't know and decided to finally give it a try. Speaking of stalking posts, I found a great idea for Wednesday posts: Wordless Wednesdays. I will post pictures that will describe, without words, how I feel about a specific topic. First up, Summer! It has been in the upper 90's the past fews days and it's not even "officially" Summer yet... Intro post to come soon..
