Heaven in a sweet, fried batter

When my sister came into town last weekend we made a stop at Krispy Kreme. We HAD to get a know...too many choices! The very best doughnut there is the Caramel Apple Cobbler. It is one of the seasonal ones, so make sure to get to check it out before it is gone! It is the perfect combo of apples, crunch, sweetness, and the soft dough.

Dear blog,

Dearest blog,

I really do miss you terribly, but life has been pretty intense lately! I am trying to juggle school, cleaning, and time with the hubby. Apparently I do not juggle as well as I thought.

I PROMISE I will share with you some exciting things the little sister and I get into this weekend! Until then...all my love!

Wishing time would stop,

Dinner Tip

This is a tip I have used not only for our dinner, but meals I give to family and friends. I made homemade spaghetti sauce late last week for dinner. For dinner tonight I decided to do penne pasta with a little change to the sauce, once you hear my secret ingredient you will die!

It is .....


As you are heating your sauce, add a few spoonfuls of cream cheese in. Make sure to blend all the way. Once it is combined you will be left with a creamy version of your basic red sauce! Your husband will never know it was the same sauce!

New Monogram piece!

There is an adorable shop, called Two Sister Boutique, in Clemson the sister and I found during my visit. They have clothes, jewelry, fun knick knacks and one very special new product. Right when I saw the acrylic monogram pendent. I got to choose from almost fifteen different colors, which of course was overwhelming, but I thought black would go with a ton of outfits.

I did not get a chance to put it on a necklace yet, but I was so excited I could not wait to show ya'll! I included in the pictures the two different necklaces I am deciding between. I can't wait for this monogram beauty to be debuted!

Good-bye to a best friend!

Jenna, Jenny, and I were best friends all throughout college. We had such wild times together and have been through everything you could possibly think of! The three of us have been back together in Columbia for the past year and it was like old times. Jenny was accepted to the Charleston School of Law for this fall!!!!! We are all so happy for her and know great things are up ahead. We will miss her and her sweet, caring personality! Jenna and I will be planning our trip down to visit very soon!

A typical picture of the three of us in our car before going out... or maybe after a few drinks....

All of us at Rockaways for her going away party

Eat, Pray, Love

I just finished the book Eat, Pray, Love this week. I was determined to finish before the movie came out this Friday. I am one of those crazy people who must read the book before they can see the movie. It seems so much better to do the reading first. I have never seen a movie that was actually better than the book. The Notebook would be a close tie between the book and movie. Gosh that is a classic! I can not wait to see the movie this weekend with my mom and sisters! Have a great weekend! :)

Places I wanna go

I was thinking the other day about all the places I want to go that I haven't been. With Matt and I talking about having kids in the very near future, I got kind of frantic! It made me think about all the places I want to go. I would like to go to at least one of these places before we have kids... we'll have to see.

1. London, England
2. Seattle
3. San Francisco
4. Boston
5. New York (I have already been, but I want to go with the Hubby!)
6. Biltmore House (Asheville)

What are the places you haven't been, but would like to visit????

Tiger Town weekend

This weekend the hubby went hiking through the mountains with some buddies. Since he was going to be gone, I figured this would be the perfect weekend for me to visit my little sis up in Clemson. For a USC graduate, I love Clemson much more than I should! It think it has the most beautiful views and cute college scene.

Sadly, I did not have the camera with me to document our adventures! Here is our weekend in a nutshell...

Ate at some amazing places like

Treated ourselves to the best ice cream on the planet EACH day from here

Shopped and visited around downtown Greenville

Saw this interesting movie

and did tons of this

I can't wait to go visit her again!
