Flashback Friday

Fall 1992, Miss. My-High-School beauty pageant. Are words necessary? There's a great story I could share here about this particular pageant, but I don't know what lurkers are out there so I will stay mum on it. One guess which one is the wife: I love the song "Lady in Red".

and I seemed to have a love affair going on with a bottle of hair spray!!

Considering it

I need your help ladies. I'm contemplating joining the Junior League. I need input from any of you ladies out there that have any experience with it. In our area they have MANY opportunities to volunteer, which I've been very interested in, and I think it would be a great opportunity for me to meet some new folks. Broaden my horizons, so to speak. The only problem for me would be how much actual time would I be required to commit to. My schedule, like so many others, has it's ebbs and flows. There would be times when I could volunteer all kinds of time, but there would be other times when folks would feel like I had fallen off the face of the earth. And if I do this I want to love it, not just do it to do it. HELP!

Mean Girls...

I'm sitting here watching the Reunion Show on the Real Housewives of the OC. I find striking similarities between the "mean girls" of this show, and it goes without saying who they are (and if you don't know --Vicky and Tamara), and some of the women I've come across in my own life. Always able to lash out and say what they want to and about you, but God help you if you have something to say to them. Or even less confrontational, you just try to seperate yourself from them--not allowed unless it's on their terms. I could keep listing the things here, but I won't. I just tell myself in these situations to be the better person and rise above. And try to keep the toxic-ness out of your life.

Make a Wish

Marion Square, Charleston, South Carolina. After a wonderful breakfast at Hominy Grill on Sunday morning we headed over to see what was going on with some of the Southeastern Wildlife Expo activities. We had to take a brief stop for wish making.

Lovebug, I hope all your wishes come true.

Our lovely ladies running off some energy on the College of Charleston campus while we were in Charleston this past weekend.

The Bachelor

Just watched a little bit of The Bachelor and have to ask, what in the world was that sound when he and Molly were in the bathtub? Molly looked a little embarrassed by the "poot" esque sound of it all...she obviously does not have children yet.

Will post more later about our Charleston trip.

Flashback Friday

In honor of the warmer days we have had lately and in hopes of an early Spring here's a flashback that includes (almost) all of my most favorite things: My lovely ladies, ice cream, rickshaw rides and warmer Charleston no less. The only thing that is missing is the Hubby, who was taking the picture. We head back to Charleston tomorrow to do a little of the Wildlife Expo, a Valentine's day carriage tour, some shopping and dinner at one of my oldest friends homes. Now if the wonderful weather they've been having would hold out for one more day...

Wine O

This weekend our Wine O group got together for the first time in a very long time. The purpose is for everyone to bring a bottle of wine to introduce to the group and for the opportunity to meet new people as we are always adding to the invitation list. In the business of running around and helping set up someone failed to eat. Yet this same someone still consumed several glasses of wine. This same someone and her girlfriend, a former Clemson cheerleader, thought it would be a fantastic idea to start doing cheerleading stunts. Now today that same someone was sent a picture of her falling in the midst of attempting this stunt. The thing is she was wearing a cute little dress which was cut on the short side. Someone is thanking the good Lord above not only for underwear, but for very dark tights. And now that same someone needs to nurse a HUGE bruise on her knee while contemplating the pros and cons of finally deciding to act her age. hmmmm.....
