Five on Friday

Oh hey, Easter weekend!

It's Friday, the sun is shining, it's going to be over 80 degrees today... does it get much better than that? Don't think so!

Linking up for another Five on Friday with April.
It's the last 5K of the winter/spring race season for me - hallelujah!

The Columbia YMCA Bunny Hop 5K is annually one of the best 5Ks that I run. The first year, I set a 5K PR. The second year, I set another PR and beat my previous time by nearly 30 seconds. I don't have any new PR hopes for the race this year since it looks like it's going to be a little warm tomorrow morning but I am excited to get out and run it.
Three words: Henry's on State.
One of our favorite restaurants, Henry's, opened up a new location about five minutes from our house. We checked it out this past weekend and y'all, it's just as good as the original location with the added bonus of being much closer to us.

There are a lot of Carolina Chicken Sandwiches with a side of fries in my near future! ... like possibly this weekend, because I'm too impatient to wait any longer to get back here for another supper.
Can I point out that these shorts from JCrew Factory are the jam?
I already own every single color of the chino shorts, but have only recently gotten into this particular pair. Who knew that elastic waistband shorts could be so cute, comfy, and absolutely perfect? I definitely didn't expect it but you can expect to find me rockin' these shorts all summer long.
Found some neat pieces of art from local artists at the Soda City Market last Saturday.

I really want one of these sea turtles & one of the crabs to hang up in our hall / guest bathroom at our house.

I also want to find a place to hang one or two of these guys in our house. Maybe in our entry way? Maybe on either side of the mirror hanging above our fireplace?

It's been a looooong winter / early spring full of weekends at home. Don't get me wrong - it's been wonderful not having to travel all of the time and I've got zero complaints about all of the downtime that we've had. But y'all. It's time to travel again.

There are road trips to Charlotte, Kiawah, Edisto, {& maybe Asheville!} in my very near future. Beautiful island days are calling my name & I must go!

Hope that everyone has a great Easter weekend! We're celebrating not only Easter, but the end of tax season :) It's the final tax season weekend and it'll officially be over at 5PM on Tuesday.
Can. Not. Wait.
#SummerOfFun, here we come!
