Five on Friday

College football is back! It's like Christmas Eve over here and I cannot wait to be back in Clemson tomorrow for my fifteenth straight season of college football. January 9th seems like a lifetime ago and it's high time for another season of the best game.

Linking up with April for a long-overdue edition of Five on Friday.

I took advantage of the cooler weather earlier this week and managed to squeeze in a quick run after work before it started to rain. This run felt so good after last Saturday's not-so-great race. There's still a long way to go to 13.1 but I'll take any positive run that I can get!

There have been so many murals popping up around Columbia over the last few months and it's been fun watching the progress of each one of them. I don't make it down to Five Points often, but loved getting to see the latest mural being worked on earlier this week. Can't wait to see it when it's done!

Our dining room table got a fresh look this week with a new table runner, new placemats, and a new centerpiece.

Next up: new sofa and a completed man cave! The man cave is so close to being done and as soon as it's done, we can shift furniture around in the house, and our new sofa comes home from Westend Interiors.

I've said it once before but it's worth repeating: if you find this beer in stores anytime soon, buy it! The New Belgium Fat Tire Special Release White Ale is so good.

Also, check out this pretty glass that I bought while we were visiting New Belgium a few weeks ago. Biking and breweries, two of my favorite things combined on one glass.

One day really soon, I'll share about the job that I started at the beginning of May on this blog. I've never talked about any of my previous jobs on here before but this job is a tiny bit more well known around Columbia.

How well known? Let's just say there's a magazine going out next week to thousands of homes around Columbia and into dozens of shops/restaurants that has my name under "Writer". It's still surreal to think about. This job has given me the opportunity to meet so many people in Columbia and it makes me be involved, which is awesome. I also get to work with an incredible group of women who are all crazy talented, inspiring, and awesome to work with {even if they outnumber me 5:1 when it comes to Clemson and South Carolina...}


That's a wrap for today, y'all! Thanks for hanging in there with me this summer while I disappeared and did all of the fun things, but a special thanks to all of y'all who have encouraged me and this blog! As of last week, I've officially been blogging in this space for FOUR years.

Who saw that one coming four years ago? Not me!
