Wanna make friends? Pull the fire alarm.

It has been FOREVER since I did a weekend update.  I definitely haven't done one of life in SC yet.  This was my first real weekend with Mike at our apartment where I didn't have to work and/or we didn't fly somewhere and/or we didn't spend the whole time unpacking.  

Here's how it started: Last Thursday night, well, Friday morning at 2:30 a.m., we woke up to a ridiculously loud fire alarm.  Awesome.  Well, those 30 minutes we spent with the other people living in the 40 apartments in our building definitely helped us figure out who we do and do not want to be friends with; you definitely see someone's true colors at that hour of the night!  We had funny conversations with some great people our age who we hadn't previously met.  Well, then there were these people: "Ugh, come on, seriously, what is wrong with this place.  I need to do something about this, I'm calling Jenny [one of the managers] and complaining right now!  I need to be at work tomorrow morning, this is ridiculous." AND "Come on, [insert boyfriend/husband/random dude she lives with's name here], we're sitting in the car.  It's too hot out here." ...and proceeds to sit with her headlights on everyone's faces for the half hour.  No thanks!  

Flash forward to Friday after work - our apartment's clubhouse had an ice cream social - win! So we ate huge sundaes and played pool.  Because we spoiled our dinner, we drove down to the beach, walked on the pier, and explored Lighthouse Inlet and Rat Island [yes, we did see a rat] until dark.  Before we headed home, we had a super late dinner at my favorite Mexican place [can't wait to share it this week].

Can we talk about these little crabs that come out as it gets dark?! Terrifying!

Saturday we woke up before the sun to play golf.  Getting done before noon meant Waffle House for brunch and a whole relaxing afternoon at the pool.  We met tons of new, awesome people who were blasting music and playing Kan Jam in the pool - yeah, our type of people.  

Sundays are for relaxing, catching up on blogging, errands, FedEx Cup Playoffs on tv, and grilling by the pool.

That is one thing I miss about apartment living, the fun things they do to unite you guys as a community. Mine use to do that all the time! Our condo does similar stuff but its for older people (farkle, bunko) and not as inviting for us. They'll have a beginning of the summer pool party but that's it!! Glad you had a good weekend!

Our apartment never does any fun stuff like that! I think it would be fun though!

Looks like a fun weekend! Our apartment in GA put on events like that, but no one ever went.

Sounds like a great weekend and score on finding some cool people your age to hang out with now. Those crabs would terrify me too.

What a great weekend! Well besides the whole fire alarm thing. At least you got to meet some people from your building though.
