a lifestyle, motherhood, & running blog


Y'all know I don't do unplanned weekends. I usually don't do unplanned anything. But this weekend? Totally unplanned.

When you find out Friday afternoon that your fiancĂ© is down & out with flu-like symptoms, it's time to improvise & be a little spontaneous. And no, I didn't immediately pack up the car & hit the road to Kiawah {even though that sounded like the best idea ever}. I stayed in town for the whole weekend - with no plans.

Friday night looked a little something like this:

I stocked Patrick up with some medicine, Gatorade, noodle soup {the Campbell's Keurig kind? Genius} and headed back to my house for some old episodes of Scandal on Netflix, pasta, and a glass of red wine.

Saturday was a lot busier!

I started out at the gym before heading to Main Street. There, I dropped my ring off at the jeweler to get it checked/cleaned and took our florist his deposit for the wedding {another thing to cross off on the wedding to do list!}

I browsed through Mast General and people watched/shopped my way back through Soda City Market to my car. That's where I came across these guys:

& knew that we had to have one for the beach house.

From there, I went to my very favorite Blue Flour Bakery in Irmo. I'll say it once & I'll say it again: Blue Flour Bakery is the absolute best place to grab a cookie. I went in there to chat about the possibility of doing cookies rather than a cake for the wedding and left with not one, not two, but THREE {two sugar for me & one chocolate chip for Patrick} free cookies. Y'all can only imagine how excited I was about that.

& then I made the mistake of watching the first episode of Fuller House on Netflix.

I say mistake because the show was really cute, pretty entertaining, and slightly addicting. Thirteen episodes? No problem. I knocked those out easily this weekend and by the way the season ends, it looks like they have definitely left the door open for more seasons {yes!}

Sunday morning, I went back to check on the sick one again, went to church, and picked up some lunch from Newk's... which is quickly becoming our Sunday lunch go to place.

& we may have turned on House of Cards after lunch and I may have taken another Sunday afternoon nap. I don't know what it is about 1pm on a Sunday but y'all, that's nap time for me almost every week.

I rounded out the weekend with a quick trip over to Riverbanks Zoo! It was over 70 degrees outside and sunny and there was no way that I was going to waste the day inside watching House of Cards.

The good news? I'm getting really, really good at this staying put for the weekend thing. Which is good. Because we have 2.5 more weekends at home before the traveling starts up again.

Happy Leap Year, y'all! :)
