AWARD!! & weekend recap

My weekend was a pretty great one. Friday night, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my gal V didn't have to work that evening. So, we went out to eat at Sticky Fingers & had a mellow evening out at a small local bar... where we spent the majority of the night playing darts.

My cousin & his girlfriend met us out for a little while too. DON'T HAITI.
I made B tag along with us too!
I had to show off the anklet my friend Brandy made me :) 
You know I had to get my hot pink toenails in there too!

I kept it lazy alllll day on Saturday. I did absolutely nothing & it was wonderful. On Sunday, me & B went to church & listened to a great sermon about relationships. After church, we ate lunch at a local restaurant and spent the rest of the day at the pool with the roomie & a girlfriend of mine joined us too. It was such a great day!

In other news - I received another award! YAY! A big thanks to Same Sweet Girl: Memoir of a Southern Belle for giving me this award!

The rules for this award are to thank the person who gave you the award, share ten things about yourself, pass this award onto ten bloggers who you recently discovered and think are fantastic and finally contact the bloggers to let them know you’ve picked them for an award. So, without further ado...

1. I am completely accident prone/clumsy/magnet for disaster. I have injured myself with a security tag on a piece of clothing. I have had an iron fall on my head. I have had to get stitches twice within the matter of three months. You might want to keep your distance.

2. I am more than obsessed with Clemson football. I did not attend school there, but both of my parents did & so I was born and raised rooting for them. I even have the Tiger paw tattooed on my hip. It is funny... I've had it for about five years now, my parents have no idea, and they would kill me if/when they ever find out!

3. I have at least two boyfriend's that are currently in prison. Yes, prison... not jail. As embarrassing as that is to say... this of all places is where I can be honest! I haven't made the best decisions in the past when it comes to the guys I date. And by best, I mean I must not have been thinking at all! One I dated when I was 19 & he was arrested years later for selling cocaine. He was sentenced to 8 years. When I dated him, at least to my knowledge, he didn't do cocaine, or sell it, for that matter. The second one was quite the delinquent at an early age. We were friends for a long time before we dated & it just kind of turned into a short lived relationship. He is just stupid more than anything else... he always got in trouble for the most minor things, but then he would do something stupid... like run from the cops! and get himself into more trouble. I am happy to say that I am done with that phase of my life and have a good guy now!!

4. I have had over 20 jobs in my lifetime. I have waited tables, worked at a gas station, worked in retail, worked at grocery stores, worked as a secretary, worked as a manager, you name it. My track record with jobs is about equivalent with my track record for bad guys.

5. I put butter on Sweet 16 doughnuts and heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds. Sounds totally gross, but try it. You won't be sorry.

6. I always sit Indian style, no matter where I am. I sit Indian style in a booth at a restaurant, on the couch, in my desk chair. I can already feel the arthritis setting in.

7. I have two dogs. Well, one is technically B's... but I claim him as my own. Baxter is my half Jack Russell/half Chihuahua mix. Brady is B's Greyhound. They are total opposites of each other, but it works out well that way.

8. My favorite movie of all time is Shag: The Movie. If you haven't seen it, you need to. It was set in Myrtle Beach in the 60's and is about a girl who is about to get married & her friends take her on a surprise bachelorette party! Trouble, of course, ensues!

9. My biggest pet peeve is laying in the bed with dirty feet. I cannot and will not sleep with dirty feet. B thinks I am so weird because I am always cleaning them before bed :)

10. I have no talent. Seriously, I can not do one thing better than most.
