Oh Hey Friday

Hey! Friday!

Tonight is one of my two favorite events at Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia: Zoofari! I was able to go for the first time last year and it was an absolute blast.

I'm excited for all that they have planned this year!

Fall rolled in with beautiful weather this week. Clear, crisp, sunny days with lows dipping down into the 50s and the highs never quite making it out of the 70s.

My. Kind. Of. Weather.

Except for the rain, I could totally do without the rain.

It's the kind of weather that's perfect for making soup! I made some Broccoli & Cheddar soup on Monday night and I'm planning on making a batch of potato soup on Sunday while watching football.

Fall TV is back in my life again and I am so happy to have something good to watch on TV at night again. We're talking Scandal, Nashville, The Voice, Red Band Society, Modern Family... I'm beginning to think that I watch way too many TV shows.

The only bad thing is that whole having to wait until next week to see more Scandal. Need more Scandal season 4!


So my parents ended up taking 1,600+ pictures on their trip between their camera and iPhone. I've never been more proud. I'm hoping they let me snag a few pictures to share on here because of the few that I've been able to see so far, they look great!

I have been back and forth since this summer about whether or not I was going to go to the Clemson game this weekend. There just seemed like there was going to be too much going on in September, particularly this weekend, and that this game was going to be on the cutting block. But... looks like I'll be going after all! Here's to Week #5 of college football which is, thankfully, in Clemson. GO TIGERS! {Sorry, Amanda!}


Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
