Weekend Update

Now that things are back to normal (read: cold) at home, I'll share snaps from our mini staycation this past weekend!
First of all, Saturday was GORGEOUS!
We headed down to the Folly in the AM after a trip to Gold's and the grocery store.  We picked up subs to enjoy on the beach, etc.
Immediately upon arriving, we popped open Miller Lites, threw on our bathing suits, and parked it on the porch: 
 After a few hours on the porch/beach, we had our supper club group over for dinner.  We initially cancelled this month due to our AC issues, but were able to have them join us at the beach last minute.  We had pork loin, parmesan orzo, caesar salad, and garlic bread.
Supper club studs:
We took a night walk on the beach, drank good wine, and enjoyed the sounds of the ocean.
Sunday I was up early and made cinnamon rolls for breakfast, which we enjoyed...
on the porch!

I sat out there and read (I finally finished The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy!) until it was time to head back to the real world.
So there you have it, our 24 hour getaway!
How was your weekend?

Oh, don't mind us, we're just sweating our behinds off as we deal with a DOA air conditioning unit over here.

Considering the fact that the unit, made in 1993, has gotten me through 6 summers in my current condo, I'm not surprised that it's day has finally come.

Thankfully, we have been surviving the brutal heatwave with a portable unit that we purchased a while back for additional cooling.  We have quarantined our bedroom and have been living out of 300 sq feet. 

Back and forth with several companies, we've been quoted many prices and have finally decided on who we'll move forward with.

Sooooo...Not much attention to the ole blog this week...Hoping for a smooth installation over the weekend.

Oh and I also want to say a HUGE THANK YOU my friend Cyd who has graciously offered a night at her family's beach house this weekend so we can experience a night of cool comfort.


Last weekend we hit up Crust for a pizza Friday night.  Yum!   I wore the necklace I found in a thrift store in Bryson City years ago.  I was inspired by our recent trip.
 Blah! I can't find the old picture I took of K just like this,
but it's somewhere on my blog.  
Sunday night we stopped into Charleston Tobacco and Wine so he could get a couple stoags.
(Found it!)
 Then we popped over to Amen Street for their calamari,
 aka best thing you'll ever eat.
Annnnd that's about it.
Because then all hell broke loose and the raging heat took over our house.
Hope y'all have a cool weekend!

Friday Highfive

Happy Friday out there!
I was really wanting to do a life catch up post today, but there really hasn't been a lot going on around these parts.  
Between my Philly trip and last weekend's Asheville adventure, we've just been staying busy.
Here's a highfive for getting through the week!  
Who needs Google maps when you have a land surveyor husband?
We made excellent time not following the nav system.
Do yourself a favor and search "Russian Selfie Laws".
This is not a joke.
Ever since trying a corn and bacon pizza in Philly, I'm obsessed.
This is a photo of a similar version at Crust Woodfire Pizza, which is hopefully our dinner destination tonight.
I am working on a Bachelorette Party for my girlfriend and we are trying to find a space, preferably downtown, available for one night only this September.  There are 10 of us.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

And last, my favorite part of True Detective Season 2, so far, is the musician/song in the final scenes.
What are y'all thinking about it?

Have a great weekend!
