It's been a while since I posted. I've been really busy with my transcription course. Lots of practice dictation to do. Not much has happened since the last time I posted. I did turn a year older on Saturday. I am now 28. I feel a lot more closer to 30 than I felt at 27. Last Friday, we went and at Brick Oven. I love their pizza. Amy bought me the final season of the Golden Girls on DVD. I loved that show. And it came in handy the next day as it rained all day and night. My mom brought me and icecream cake to my house. I love icecream cakes and that's what I ask for every year. My grandmother also baked me a Red Velvet cake. Also one of my favorites. She gave me some birthday money too. Sunday I did get out and shop. The girls at work got me a giftcard to Kirkland's and Lee gave me some money to shop with. It was a great birthday weekend and I as I am typing this post I am scarfing down a piece of icecream cake. I'm not sure if we are going to the ballgame this weekend. We will see if we can get tickets. Lee thinks we should be able to find some. But we will still tailgate. I love tailgating food. I hope everyone has a great weekend and War Eagle!

This morning I got up to go outside and play with Mason since it was pretty early and it wasn't so hot outside. He normaly doesn't like getting a bath or playing in water ( I know...not normal), but today I was smart and brought two little treats outside and hid them in my pocket. Hey...whatever works:) He was so good while he sat there and let me brush him. He still isn't keen on getting a bath and he would run off and get his toy. He didn't roll in the dirt though afterwards which is definitely progress. Here is a picture of him post bath and brushing. He looks so happy:)

Charleston was a lot of fun. It was so pretty. It reminded me of Savannah. We left Thursday morning and arrived in Charleston around 5pm. Our hotel reminded me of a cabin, with a fireplace and wooden floors. It was very nice. As soon as we got there we all went to dinner at Gerabaldi's (sp?) and then had some frozen concoctions at Wet Willie's. Friday was the bridal luncheon at Tristan's in downtown, some brief window shopping and then the rehearsal dinner at The Harbor Club. The groom made a speech and was so happy that we all could attend even though gas prices were around $4/ gallon. K could not stop laughing and she said "my chuckle box is turned on now". You had to be there. That night we all went to the Rooftop bar, which is this bar on top of a roof at a hotel. It had a swimming pool and fountains and overlooked the city. It was really nice. Saturday was beach and barbecue day at Kiawah Island. I got some much needed sun on my very pale skin although I was happy not to get burned as I usually do. Saturday night was the beautiful wedding of Dallas and Katherine. The ceremony was overlooking the water with beautiful trees and so much green. It was breathtaking. After the ceremony, we headed across the path in a carriage ride to the reception. Dinner was wonderful. We had pork tenderloin, green beans, smashed potatoes, and crabcakes. The wedding cake was also delicious. After dancing, the reception ended and some of us (including the bride and groom) went and hung out at the pool. My legs are covered in mosquito bites. Sunday it was time to go home and get back to work:( I would love to go back soon. Here are a few pics from our trip:

We had a pretty low key weekend. I "needed" some new summer clothes so last night we ventured over to Old Navy. Lee hates to be in a store for more than 10 minutes so he left me to myself and went to Books A Million. Today we went to Bed Bath and Beyond at East Chase to buy a wedding gift for our friends Dallas and K, who are getting married next weekend. I love that store. I could spend hours in that store and am very happy that we will be getting one at Tiger Town soon! In fact, if Lee wasn't with me I probably would have spent all day there. Lee even left me in there to go to Circuit City while I wandered around looking at all the stuff I knew I needed:) After an hour, he was hungry so we purchased the gift and headed to lunch. He had Zoe's kitchen while I had Guthrie's. We ate outside on the little patio which was nice. Well that's about it. Tomorrow is Monday, and I only have to work three days next week. We are going to Charleston for the wedding mentioned above and for a much needed vacation:)
