A Southern Twenty-Five on Friday!

& so begins the meat hangover courtesy of Chima Brazilian Steakhouse. You would think that after 4 Queen's Feast trips to that place I'd learn my lesson. Nope. Not the case. Their food is delicious and I always, always end up eating more than I should.

I have been talking for years about buying a football jersey of either a player on the Panthers or a player on the Seahawks. With both teams doing so well this year, the deal I made with myself {& mistakenly shared with a friend} was that I would finally buy a jersey from either team if either one of them made it to the Super Bowl.
Sigh. Peer pressure. & yes, I'm wearing it to work today because I'm that excited about it.

Expect more on this next week but holy cow bells... Chima never disappoints.

I know I am so late to the game with this but I finally gave in and started watching House of Cards.

It is fairly safe to say that I'm intrigued by the show. I'm only about halfway through Season 1 and it's... interesting? I can't stop watching it though! Thank goodness the next season will be released on Netflix in 2 weeks.

I can get on board with this whole cold thing if it would snow but nothing. Zip. But once again, the only thing that makes the cold weather better: flannel sheets!!

If you're curious, those are supposed to be "winter animals" but the bear looks way more like a hippo than a bear if you ask me.

Y'all already know I'm a huge football fan. The obsession extends to college basketball, too {& college baseball while we're at it}. Can I just point out that Clemson was predicted to finish 14th {out of 15!} in the ACC and they are currently sitting pretty at #5? I refuse to get excited about them unless they beat UNC at Chapel Hill Sunday night. I'm sorry. How do you never win at Chapel Hill? C'mon. This is a down year for UNC and a surprisingly good year for Clemson. This has got to be the year. Right?

Go check out the hosts of Five On Friday {April, Darci, Natashaand Christina} and join in on the fun!



  1. hahaha your "hippo bear" comment had me laughing. I'm a tarheel girl so excited to see that match up :)

  2. CHima is so amazing, such great food!

    Woohoo Seahawks! happy they are doing well, I like their quarterback.

  3. Those steak houses are no joke - it's impossible to say no!!! House of Cards is such an amazing show and I think the highlight of valentines day is that the entire season 2 will be on Netflix!! Happy weekend!

  4. AH Chima is sooooo good and now I'm craving it! As a Chapel Hill native, I can't back you up on #5 but I will say that it needs to snow around here ASAP! 15* this morning and nothing but some frost on my windows! Have a wonderful weekend - house of cards is so crazy!

  5. hahaa these winter animals are hilarious!! i've been wanting to watch house of cards...maybe this weekend is the start! have a happy friday!

  6. Would you believe I've never been to Chima!? I need to get there!

    Thanks for linking up with us Chesson :)

  7. Mmmmmm we LOVE Chima! Glenn's a huge carnivore so he doesn't even touch the salad bar, but since I only eat fish I get the fish+salad bar (bonus: cheaper!) option. To be a steakhouse, they do fish the right way too and we always leave stuffed and happy!

  8. you are right !that bear does look like a hippo haha you made me laugh

  9. I always love watching the UNC/Clemson game. While I am a UNC fan (sorry both parents and boyfriend went there) I still wouldn't be surprised to see Clemson pull the upset this year because like you said, the Heels are all over the board this year!

  10. {visiting from the link up} Hope you see some snow asap! Meanwhile enjoy the warm, cozy bedding :)

  11. Those sheets are presh! They look perfectly cozy :)

  12. House of Cards is so addictive! I think my boyfriend and I watched the entire season 1 in a week. If you haven't watched it yet, you should also watch The Following, so good!
