A Southern Twenty-Five on Friday!

It's Homecoming weekend in Clemson and there is a night game. Does it get any better than that? Nope.

Linking up for another Five on Friday with April, Darcy, Christina, and Natasha.


I'm going to attempt to combine a 5K race, tailgating, and a night game all into one day. I'm not sure how this is going to turn out but you know me, I like to do it all, and I'm sure the results will be entertaining.

I love to shop, especially when I'm spending someone else's money rather than my own. My brother hates to shop. Perfect combination, right? Especially because my brother is so simple to shop for. All you have to do is stick to short sleeve, crew neck shirts that have no logos, nothing graphic, and aren't bold colors and stay away from puffy vests.

Win, win, win, and win.

Same shirt, four times over, in four shades of dull.

Have no fear - I didn't walk out of the mall with just clothing for my brother. Anthropologie was having a decent sale yesterday and I managed to snag two shirts that are perfect for football games.




Perfect way to round out the week: a glass of wine & Scandal.

Also, can we note that Scandal has seriously stepped up their game this season with the acting? Not that it was bad before but they have raised the bar in the first part of the season.

Last, but certainly not least, guess who finally got to go home yesterday... 5 weeks and 6 days post-breaking hip/hip surgery?

Woo hoo!!!

I hate that my grandmother broke her hip and had to go through all of this, but I have seen her more in the last six weeks than the last year. I've also been able to talk to her every single day over the last six weeks {except for like 2}. It's been pretty nice :)


Happy Solid Orange Friday! Go Tigers! Beat Syracuse!


  1. Your brother sounds like my boyfriend! He is the King of dull, colorless shirts and khaki shorts...snoozefest!
    I definitely have gotten sucked into Scandal this season. Last season, I watched it but more as just background noise as I was doing something else but the season is 100% better with the acting! Good luck with the 5k and Homecoming game!


  2. I was doing the exact same thing last night!! Hope you have a great weekend - sounds like your Saturday is jam packed!!!

  3. Have so much fun this weekend--looks like it will be jam packed with all kinds of stuff!! :)
    So glad your grandmother is going home!!

  4. Wow this weekend is going to rock for you! Cannot wait to hear all about it and see pics! have a great one girl! xoxo

  5. Hooray for your grandmother being home, that's so wonderful!

    I love wine and good tv, just the best!

    Have fun at homecoming!!!

  6. Scandal - isn't it fabulous! Looking forward to curling up some time Sunday and catching up!

  7. I love the white shirt! And night games are the BEST! Good luck this weekend, and happy Friday!! :)

  8. GIRL! A 5K race, tailgating, and a night game all in one day! You are a freaking trooper but that sounds like so, so much fun. Also I LOVE the style of that top from Anthropolgie in orange! Anything pleated like that is SO flattering; did they have other colors?!?!!??!

  9. Way to go on the 5k. I haven't seen the previous seasons of Scandal but I started watching this season and I'm loving it. I need to find the time to go back to the old ones, but I'm catching on pretty quickly!! Have a great weekend.

  10. Great to see that your grandmother has made it home. Hope she continues to recover well!

  11. Shopping is amazing. So is Scandal. I binged watched and I'm finally caught up and in to it. Hope you had a great weekend!

  12. I think night games are the best! Reminds me of high school and playing under the lights :)

    Scandal is my newest obsession- SO GOOD!

  13. Don't be mad, but I'm kind of disappointed with Scandal this year....eeek. Don't kill me, BUT last season was so much more dramatic, and you know I love that. Are you watching How To Get Away with murder? Now, that is my newest obsession! So glad your grandma is out of the hospital. She is too cute! I bet your momma is so happy :) xoxo
