Valentine's Day: You know how the first anniversary is supposed to be a "paper" gift? Well, we've decided to continue that trend all year, and instead of buying gifts for each other this year for Valentine's, we headed up to Columbia last week for a Gamecocks women's basketball game again our UConn Huskies! What a cool arena Colonial Life is! The game was sold out, and we were two of probably like 20 UConn fans in the whole place - haha. We had a great time.
Blogging for Books: This has become one of my absolute favorite things! Recently, I've been choosing cookbooks, but this time, I decided to switch it up and get an adult coloring book: Cats in Paris. It did not disappoint! The whole book was a fantastic combination of the typical elaborate shapes and designs you'd see in a regular adult coloring books, paired with scenes of Paris filled with hidden cats. If you're a cat lover (like me), I definitely suggest this book for a relaxing afternoon!
Charleston Blog Society: Since the new year, I've attended a couple of fun events hosted by the founder and my favorite lady, Gillian. After attending the Mixology Tour (here's my recap!), it was perfect that Cocktail Club hosted a happy hour for CBS, and I had a chance to go back and eat more of their bacon fat popcorn - yum! The most recent event was a styled shoot at the Gadsden House, a beautiful historic event venue. With rentals from EventHaus, paper goods from The Silver Starfish, desserts from Swank, bubbly from One Hope Wine and the Cocktail Bandits, I had so much fun taking photos of Gillian's wonderful styling with my new camera lens.
Celebrating: Well, our Panthers didn't win the Super Bowl (I'm getting over it slowly), but we did have fun watching them get there. Plus, everyone and everywhere was decked out in their blue and white - even my love, Krispy Kreme! There has been so much excitement lately around here, and it's been fantastic!
I hope y'all have a fantastic weekend! Don't forget to enter here to win a gift card from Kate Fern Design, and come back Monday to see what next week's "Month of Love" giveaway will be!
