Check out the photos of the waterfalls... and of my honey. It was so pretty out I wish I were there all of the time! The last photo is classic Evan and his "Captain Morgan" pose. Feel free to comment! :)
This past weekend, Evan and I and a few friends took a hike through Triple Falls in Dupont State Forest, NC. It was gorgeous. 63 degrees and a little breeze, we had it made. The photos included in this post is to capture Evan's adventurous self when it comes to climbing waterfalls. I even had several strangers ask me what that "guy" is doing up there. Another post to come later with photos of the park.

Ok, so let me explain. Back in the 'ol college days when a certain friend of mine and myself were unhappy about something, bored, or in a "funk," we'd take a little trip to Target. We'd call it the "Target Makes Me Happy Run." More often than not, we'd buy ourselves something $10 or less, (we had to set a limit, we were poor college kids) to brighten up our day. It really works, and it may just all be in my head, but I still use that tactic today. Just try it out, if your in a funk... run to Target. Get you something that you didn't really need, but you wanted. See if I'm right.
So, I did a little run online... to put together a new mini office that I'd really like to see happen in my place. My theme is black and lime green, with aqua accents. [More photos to come later.] Enjoy for now.

Since I love shopping, I've decided to put together an outfit per week that I'm thinking about. (Don't worry I'm not actually buying all of these things, but its fun to shop around and make outfits.) Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think! :) I'm planning on doing a weekly feature with different stores online so stay tuned to explore my tastes!

Guess what?! It is sooo... fall. I am thrilled. Really. This is one of my favorite times of the year, and I'm so excited its finally here. Ok, I know that I'm actually a week and half late realizing it, but officially yesterday it was fall to me. I started my fall season off yesterday with grabbing my first official Pumpkin Pie. Man was it good. Also, I made it a point to stop by City Brew to get a Pumpkin Pie Latte... [see photo above] which is one of my other favorites in the fall. So, YAY! Happy Fall! So, I have decided to make a list of my favorite things of the fall:
10. Thanksgiving... by far my favorite holiday of the year.
9. Being able to really enjoy the outdoors without sweating or freezing (the mid 60 degree weather) For all who know me well, I can still wear my Rainbows...
**Side Note: I will, and I promise, will be getting new brown Rainbows soon. My 5 1/2 year old-faithful's... according to Evan have petrified. I'll miss those 'ol things! :(
8. Cute sweaters, scarves, and boots (by the way I WILL get cowboy boots this fall.)
7. Visiting the mountains and staying in cabins...
6. Carving pumpkins... one of my and Evan's new traditions :)
5. All of the amazing colors of the leaves that God's created for us to enjoy
4. The crisp air in the morning that just makes you smile :)
3. Pumpkin Pies
2. Pumpkin Spice Lattes
1. Pumpkin Cheesecake made by my aunt Frances
So what are your favorite things of this new season? Please share!! :-D

So, Evan and I took a little mini-vacation down to Huntington Beach State Park to stay with Bobby and Frances (my aunt and uncle) to fish and hang for the long weekend. So, here's a little recap of the weekend:
FRIDAY: Evan and I head down about 8:30 am and finally made it around 2. Needless to say we had to stop by Wal-Mart on the way down to get some salt water fishing gear, and a few things we forgot at home. The ENTIRE way down it was nasty and raining pretty hard. We walk out of Wal-Mart and it was gorgeous... and 75 degrees. Thank you, Lord :) Let me just add: don't make a pit stop for food at the Seafood Shack beside Wal-Mart in Conway. They don't have real fish there, and if you get that fake fish, prepare to eat pre-frozen rubber.
So, after Evan & Bobby's unsuccessful first day of fishing (ok they caught a few mullets -- which I just learned are a really bony fish) we all decided to come in to get ready for supper. We headed over to a microbrewery called Quigly's. Some good food happened right there. They even had peach beer. After supper we headed over to Bi-Lo to grab us some bug spray and hydro-cortisone for Evan's poison Sumac. :(
SATURDAY: Evan and Bobby get up bright and early to go shrimping. Oh my gosh did they catch some shrimp. See the photos with all the fish... 7 lbs total of shrimp. Frances and I head over to the Atalaya Festival... which was PACKED and made me ready to leave because of the amount of people. We headed back in time to meet the guys for lunch and then a little bit of beach time. Evan and Bobby were SO excited they caught their first fish of the weekend on Saturday -- see the photos :) We grilled some chicken and went out to Sonic for icecream later. Fun day.
SUNDAY: Can I just say we did not want to leave? The weather was incredible the entire time and we loved it. Evan even commented that it was one of his best vacations yet. After some lunch and some good chillin' time on the beach, we headed out of the campground to the outlet malls and then back to Greenville. After leaving around 4... we didn't return until 11:15 Sunday night. What a weekend :) Believe it or not, no sunburn for me! So, beware, there's tons of photos, but you know me... trigger happy :)
