a lifestyle, motherhood, & running blog


Hello, Columbia!

So in a span of 24 hours I...

- Packed up two SUVs full of things from my apartment in Charlotte
{anybody else notice the last minute, strategic placement of the syrup, Bisquick, and plant?}
- Drove to Columbia
- Unpacked everything into my high school bedroom & attempted to make it livable
- Signed up at the Y
- Hit up a 5:30am class at the Y
- Went to my first day of work at my new job

... whew.

It is kind of nice being home though. I was in charge of grilling up supper Monday night and got to do so out on the deck while watching a thunderstorm roll in. Dinner happened before 8pm {which almost never happened in my apartment} and was delicious!

After dinner, momma laid out all the things I needed to make my lunch for Tuesday which made putting it together a breeze.

Anyway, HELLO COLUMBIA! Nice to see you again.

Stay tuned later this week as I get back into the blogging groove again {& might actually bust out the real camera instead of snapping away on my phone}. I'm a little bit excited to get out and start relearning and exploring Columbia! I've got plans this week to catch up with some old friends, revisit high school stomping grounds, check out a Charlotte Brewery Night, a dinner date with Patrick {YAY for living in the same town!!!} and play at Riverbanks Zoo... no rest for this girl, which is exactly how I like it to be.


  1. Of course the syrup and bisquit need a last minute hiding place- what if you get hangry on the drive ;)

  2. that dinner looks yummy! we always have to eat before 8pm. i drives me crazy after!

  3. Being home is the best! And yay for the Riverbanks Zoo!!!!

  4. Gosh, you've been busy but it looks like it's all going great! Nothing beats being home :) Enjoy!!

  5. Welcome back home! Maybe I'll get to see you more often now that you are there!

  6. So exciting! I saw the Bisquik then your comment, and it was like "where's Waldo" to find the syrup haha!

  7. Glad you're getting settled and yay for more frequent date nights with your boo :)

  8. You are almost making me miss that city. I last went to the zoo in 2012. I want to go again.

  9. YAY! Glad you're all settled in but it sounds like you had a very busy two days! Love getting to watch the summer thunderstorms roll in too. There's just something so peaceful yet exciting about it.
