Recently...

Happy Friday, everyone!  How has another week flown by?  It's been another couple of weeks since I've posted anything about life in Charleston (how does this keep happening??), so here's a peek before the weekend...
Listening to: Recently by Dave Matthews Band.  Whenever I write these posts, I always start humming this song to myself.

Anticipating: a weekend of nothing who knows what!  The British Open is on, there's golf to be played, and tonight we're headed to the Riverdogs Baseball stadium, "The Joe," to watch the finals of the spring kickball season!

Missing: My girl.  Like I said in my last "currently" post, I had a little 12 year old visitor in town a week ago for girls golf camp.  It was so much fun to get to do "kid" things!  We saw Inside Out, went to the splash park, and toured Magnolia Gardens and the petting zoo.

Eating: Anything and everything.  While our visitor was here, we ate Ben and Jerry's twice (you need to try The Tonight Dough, if you haven't), finally tried the barbecue chicken nachos Mallory raves about at California Dreaming (the views of downtown are great, too!), and made tons of s'mores.

Lusting after: Ice Berry Polka Jamberry wraps!  I'm so excited to welcome Amanda to my sidebar!!  I hope y'all will check out some of the new Jamberry designs.  They now make tons of college wraps and even some for the UConn Huskies (1 and 2).

Reading: Gone Girl.  One of my colleagues let me borrow it, and I am so excited to finally jump on this bandwagon and see the movie after I read it!

Training for: the Glass Slipper Challenge!  This week, I signed up for the runDisney Princess Half Marathon and Mike and I signed up for the Enchanted 10k.  My two races together will be a total of 19.3 for the Glass Slipper Challenge medal.  I've got 6 months to train... I got this?

So fun to do a Disney race-- or two! One of my friends did the half earlier this year and had so much fun. I tried my Jamberry wraps again and I just can't get them to work for me-- but I love all of the designs!

What did you think about Inside Out? I've heard it's great! The glass slipper challenge sounds fun! Six months should be plenty of time to train!! Have a great weekend!!

I am so jealous of y'all and your Glass Slipper Challenge! That's one race weekend that is definitely on my bucket list. I can't wait to read all about it and see pictures and live vicariously through you!

Rebecca Jo said...

You're doing the Princess weekend?!?!?!? I am officially jealous of you!

Holly said...

I'm so jealous that you're running the Disney Princess Half! We're going to DisneyWorld the week of the marathon, but by the time I went to register for any of the races, they were sold out. One of these days, I will run one.

Emily said...

Disney races are the BEST!! And the Tonight Dough is the best. And Inside Out is the best. :)

Robin said...

One of my favorites by Ben & Jerry is "Half-Baked". And "Everything but the...".

Liz Joiner said...

You definitely have this race! 6 months is plenty of time to train.

My husband and I are both working from home today and met on the couches for lunch and of course he said we had to watch the British Open, ha! The view there are gorgeous though. The disney princess run is going to be ah-mazing!

So many fun things going on!! Looks like you're treating your little visitor to a very fun and delicious stay!! :) How EXCITING that you've signed up for more Disney races!!! Can't wait to hear more about it! Happy training! You've totally got this, Meg! ;) Xx

Emily said...

Love the Jamberry nail design! Sounds like you've been having fun!

Lisa C said...

You can do that race! If I can finish a half-marathon, then pretty much anyone can.

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Looks like you've been keeping busy with a ton of fun things, and YES to Gone Girl! Loved it, and thought they did a great job on the movie with staying true to the book. Let me know when you're done, so we can pick each other's brains on what we thought of it ;-)

Happy Friday <3
