Happy Monday, y'all!
Is anyone else absolutely thrilled that this week is FINALLY here? College football is back! In our house, we're currently counting down the days and hours until 8pm Thursday evening. But we're also currently...
Celebrating: Patrick's 31st birthday! We had a great weekend full of fun things from the Clemson/USC soccer game {Go Tigers!} to dinner out at a new restaurant on Main Street {Main Street Public House} to trying out a new watering hole in town {The Casual Pint}.
And: celebrating my favorite {and only} sister-in-law Amy's birthday. Happy Birthday, Amy!
Training for: I was on the fence about whether or not I wanted to run the Kiawah Half Marathon again this year and quite a few of y'all talked me into it. Plus, they have a new course route this year. It eliminates the out & back portion of the course and miles 8-13 are in a completely new area. This is awesome because the back half of the race is always hardest for me {especially miles 11-13} and those miles this year are on the part of the island that I most frequently run on. Hopefully that translates into a better finish for me this year!
A Year Ago Today: I ran the Stomp the Swamp 5K & placed first in my age group. Yes, there were only two total people in my age group but first place is first place, right?

And: I think something pretty awesome happened a year ago today. Maybe.
Looking Forward to: THURSDAY! While we won't be in Nashville this time to see the USC/Vandy game in person, we'll be tuning in from our house with a few friends.
Oddly Excited About: ... the blinds in our living room. Y'all already know my obsession with the new blinds in our new house but it's been months since we've been able to complete a room & hang up blinds. We checked another room off our list this weekend {the front living room} and got to hang up blinds!
{& the last of my furniture is out of the storage unit and into our house, hallelujah.}
Painting: we're moving on to the trim in our dining room this week. It needs to be cleaned/prepped, primed, and then painted. We are SO close to being done with paint in our house!
Watching: Quantico Season 1. It's finally on Netflix and after being completely obsessed with the show last year, I finally get to watch it again and get Patrick hooked on it. We're 4 episodes on and I think it's safe to say he likes the show as much as I do.
Drinking: ... Coast 32/50 Kolsch which is currently one of the many craft beer selections on tap at The Casual Pint. This is a new craft beer bar in The Vista that we have fallen in love with. It's similar to our favorite Craft & Draft on Devine Street but this place is closer to our house, has a bunch of board games & cards you can play with, and has a great atmosphere. We might have gone here both Friday & Saturday night this weekend. Oops?
Obsessing Over: wedding pictures. I will probably never get tired of posting these.
{& you can check back on Wednesday to see another edition of Wedding Wednesday/more pictures!}
