weekend happenings + giveaway announcement!

Goodness gracious... what a weekend!
I usually take it pretty easy on the weekends, unless we take a trip somewhere.  This weekend, the agenda was super busy.

As you know, my best friend came to Charleston on Friday. We ate dinner at Taco Boy downtown & then went to Midtown afterwards.  Some other friends met up with us there, too!

Crystal and I walked around in the Avondale area on Saturday morning & enjoyed some coffee while shopping in some small, local stores. 
Brandon had people over at his place to watch the Clemson game on Saturday, so we stopped over there for a few hours, too.  The game, by the way, was super stressful. 
We did pull off a win, though -sorry Hailey! :)

Soon after the game, I had to get ready to go celebrate one of my best friend's 25th birthday.  We all met up on a friend's boat at the Mega Dock for hors' dourves & cocktails.
Sadly, I didn't get a group picture, but here are a few.
ok, ok...
By the way, this is the birthday girl and me.
My brother came to celebrate, too!
He was more interested in Brandon than he was me.
Here's a picture of my favorite (okay, only) brother.

We had such a fun night!
On Sunday afternoon, Brandon and I had a bite at California Dreaming. 
Have you ever had their seafood nachos?
 It was a perfect day to sit outside & enjoy the sunshine.

Later on, we had a big Pre-Thanksgiving dinner with about 20 or 30 friends at my place.  The weather was great, so we were able to have it outside with a fire pit. I wish I would've gotten more pictures, but my roommate did on her camera.  Sadly, this is all I've got...

Alright, now what you've been waiting for.
The winner of the YT Clothing giveaway!
