What I'm reading: Water for Elephants


Have you ever wanted to run away 
and join the circus?
I don't know if I have any particular talent they would have been 
interested in
~but I have really been enjoying this book~
it's quite sassy

*here's a little circus inspiration*

Lets make Pie!


So Santa must have had me on his "Nice List"
because he brought me the
Breville Pie Baker

I've already made my first batch of pies
~and short of a zombie apocalypse~
I'm going to be using this thing
a few times a week at least

It's crazy cold outside

Coastal Carolina ode to fried food

Fried Food- Check
Carnival Riders- Check
Good Friends- Check

I love the Coastal Carolina Fair
Fall is my favorite time in South Carolina
and the Fair is one of the reasons why
the weather isn't cold yet
and it's the best way to spend an evening in October

Where else can you get fried butter?

Funnel Cake anyone?

Kate's Fried Pickles were amazing

While we were riding all the belly flopping rides
they boyfriend was hustling the Carnie's 
he played  games all evening
 his favorite was this wonky pool table game
(which he won!)

Fall in New York City

( Central Park from my iPhone)

The boyfriend and I took a quick trip to the big apple
we had tickets to 
Pee Wee Herman on Broadway
~We had a wonderful time~
except that the boyfriend came down with the flu

(here he is about to eat his chicken noodle at Shopsins

Pee Wee Herman was amazing
the boyfriends review was perfect
he said:
"well that's not something I'm going to forget in a long time"

Since the boyfriend was stuck in the hotel room
I explored all on my own
*pretty fun in a big city*
I saw an old friend and ate a lovely crepe cake
walking around my hotels neighborhood

I found a Levi's jean photo shoot
 complete with vintage camera rental
I ate homemade doughnuts and a pot of chocolate
was amazed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

~We had a blast~
but it was pretty amazing to get back home
to our all American city

This American App

I love some NPR
-and I wear glasses-
so automatically I love the new iphone app

it's the entire archives since 1995
*lucky me*

Cocktails for the Cure

*My new job is challenging*
and very different
from the bar tending I've done
for most of my professional experience 
~a bonus to my new job is that I get to put on events~
in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month
We held an amazing evening
*Cocktails for the Cure*
the whole staff
wore our signature pink shirts
(the guys were thrilled)
so a big pink
*Thank you*
to everyone who participated
and supported
(yay! to good causes too)

(B.T. in his Passionately Pink Tee)

(My pink dress)
I'm waiting for my pink hair!

*Thank You to the Ladies of*
they were putting in pink hair extensions 

*they are drinking a Ta-Ta-Tini*
each of the bartenders
came up with a pink drink
to raise money to donate to the 
the Ta-Ta-Tini was the hands down winner for the evening
but I loved them all!
