A Southern Twenty-Five on Friday!

& it's time for a little Five on Friday with April, Darci, Natashaand Christina {and hopefully a little bit of warmer weather this weekend!}

I know that I'm not the only one that wishes the weather would make up it's mind and get to spring already. It was 78 degrees when I left Columbia Sunday afternoon and next thing I know the temperatures are down in the 20s. I mean... really? It's also impossible to talk myself into getting out of bed on a Friday morning when it's 32 outside and raining. I just want summer & 95 degree weather & lots of time down on the beach.


Keep your fingers crossed for me! After four years of living in the same apartment... I'll hopefully be moving out in 3 months! I cannot wait to be in the new place that I've picked out. I may or may not have a countdown going on my chalkboard on my fridge. 86 days to go!

Check out my apartment about three weeks after I moved in it... it looks so bare! I might miss my first post-college/real life apartment when I move out. Maybe.

Only three more weeks until my favorite Farmers Market is back open for business. I have seriously missed fresh produce in my life. Zucchini. Squash. Green beans. Red potatoes. Ears of corn. Apples. Red & green bell peppers. Spring and summer produce is the absolute best.

We're about to find out how running a 5K after a 3 month break & while fighting off a sinus infection is like... 

Finally... a shout out to the Clemson men's basketball team. 10 ACC wins with the chance at a school record 11 ACC wins tomorrow? I love how everyone picked Clemson to finish 14th in the league this year and they have the opportunity to finish the regular season in 5th place. Way to go, Tigers! & KJ McDaniels. Because he's awesome.


Happy last Friday before Daylight Savings Time kicks in! I cannot wait to leave work & have time in the afternoon to hit up the Greenway before it gets dark. Happy Weekend!


  1. Good luck in your 5K! I bet you will rock it :) I'm so with you on being more than ready to have spring and summer produce back in my life!

  5. I miss my first post-college place. It was in a fun location in Dallas and a fun reminder for me of how much I had grown up!

    I'm with you--I can't WAIT for spring and summer. Even the triple degree Texas heat!

  6. I love that graphic! I'm on the countdown until the SC salt air is in my hair. This NC weather is horrible...we have had two great weekends nestled in between nasty ice and slush! I hope your weekend is as awesome as possible!
