A Southern Twenty-Five on Friday!

How is it already Friday again? Not that I'm complaining...

Linking up for another Five on Friday with April.

Now that I have a Riverbanks Zoo membership, I can take advantage of the final Members' Night Out of the summer. They open up the zoo three nights during the summer months from 6-9pm for an after hours experience. The last one of the summer is tonight & we're definitely going.

Not sure Patrick realized what he was signing up for when he bought me this membership for my birthday!

I did a teeny, tiny bit of online shopping last week.

What? JCrew Factory was having a great sale {+ free shipping} and I managed to snag some good deals on some running & camera things on Amazon.

Three words.

Rosewood. Dairy. Bar.


43 days until football season! Y'all. Six weeks and counting. The ACC had their media days this week and I couldn't help but get excited about football season after reading about it all week. While we're waiting for the season to start, you can check out the new tab on my blog & reminisce about the last couple of seasons.

Happy 39th anniversary to my parents! They were married 39 years ago today. Unfortunately for y'all {you're welcome, mom & dad!} I won't be sharing a throwback picture from their wedding day, I'll just share a more recent ones...


Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  13. Going to the zoo after hours sounds like a lot of fun. We just took my niece to the zoo last week and it was so hot that we had trouble enjoying the experience. Going at night, when it's cooler would have been wonderful.
