Five on Friday!

Cheers to the weekend, y'all!
I'm not usually one to wish away days but the next FIVE weekends have some pretty exciting things going on and I'm 100% more interested in the weekend days than the week days right now. Am I living for the weekends? Absolutely. Bring 'em on.
Linking up for another Five on Friday with April.
Happy Kentucky Derby Weekend!
While I've yet to go to a Derby {hello, bucket list item!} I did get to swing by Churchill Downs and catch a few races this past September when we road tripped to Louisville. It's such a great experience and you have the chance to go, you should absolutely go.
I'm sorry, but what? It's been SIX years since I graduated Clemson?
Say it ain't so, y'all, say it ain't so. I can't believe it's been that long.
{& I also can't believe that my friend on the far right of this picture is getting married in 8 days!}
I think it's safe to say that Twisted Spur is officially my current favorite spot in Columbia and I'll come up with any reason to go.

It's a good thing my fiancé loves it as much as I do!
Thursday nights in May = Rhythm and Blooms at the Botanical Gardens

Happy Mother's Day!!
I'm so lucky to have a mom who loves biking and beaching and tailgating and Clemson and shopping and Gilmore Girls as much as I do.
& I'm pretty dang lucky to have a grandmother who instilled a love of Clemson in both my mom and I from an early age.
AND I'm pretty pumped about having the coolest future mother-in-law ever!
Happy Friday, y'all! Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

  3. Churchill Downs looks awesome. I wish I could get dressed up and wear an awesome hat for the derby and have somewhere to go. Time flies! This May marks TEN YEARS since I graduated college. Where did that time go??!?!?


  4. Love Churchill Downs!! I graduated undergrad from UofL so it holds a special place in my heart :) I'm right there with you on living for the weekend! Sounds like you have some awesome ladies in your life! Being totally honest, I'm pretty jealous of your relationship with your MIL! That's awesome.

  5. Ahhh it's been 7 years since I graduated. That just doesn't seem right! Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mom's in your life.

  6. This just made me realize it has been 15 years since I graduated fro LSU, gulp. Where does the time go! You have some great mommas in your life! Enjoy them this weekend! Derby is on my bucket list for sure!

  7. haha you look the exact same as you did 6 years ago. i don't even want to think about how long it's been for me. hope you get to go to the derby one day!
