Some Fun Things

A couple of weeks ago I got together with Courtney from A Thoughtful Place.  You know, the cute girl behind the blog that has a million fun and crafty ideas.  In blog world we totally hit it off and even email frequently.  I'm happy to say that I adore her in the "real world" too!

Courtney was in Charleston for a long weekend with some girlfriends, so we couldn't resist the opportunity to meet eachother.  The plan was to catch up at a restaurant/bar that she and her friends had just finished eating lunch. The problem was that this particular area, (Isle of Palms) can be quite touristy and busy during the summer and I couldn't find a parking spot.  So she ended up just jumping in my car and we went a mile down the road to the beach house she'd rented with her friends.  We of course had to joke that she's brave for jumping in the car of a stranger ;)

{Yes, our dresses even matched!}

So fun to connect with my blog friends. Who else is coming to Charleston to see me??


Remember a couple of weeks ago when I posted about Novel's opening party?  Photographer Laura Olsen with the Charleston Mercury (a fun Charleston based newspaper) was there too.  Here's a small screen shot of the story.  That's me in the black pants.  And thanks for the kind words, Charleston Mercury!  {I have to admit I felt a little boring after arriving and seeing a girl donning a pink tutu!}  Ya'll can click here to see their whole story.

That's all for now.  I'll try to pop back in on Monday to wish ya'll a happy 4th!

How fun meeting up with Courtney! I was able to meet up with her in California and she is so sweet! Isn't it exciting to meet someone in person you feel like you already know?! Happy 4th!

I'm in Charleston and we still need to meet! :)

I don't know why, something about the Mercury's photographers or the camera they use, but I usually look good in their pictures. I usually look embarrassing in any other media outlet's pictures.
