What I've been up to...

Good morning, friends! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving week. I had a great time with my parents and friends! I want to catch y'all up on what I've been up to lately because I've been busy! I have been a terrible blogger and I'm so sorry about that! I promise to work on it this next month.

So November weather has officially come to the Queen City. Leaving for the gym in the morning at 7 is really rough.

But it was just in time for Thanksgiving! If you missed my Thanksgiving plans check it out here. My brunch turned out even better than I could've imagined!

The breakfast pastry was so easy to make and incredibly delicious. I would make these again in a heartbeat. 

I was really nervous about making scones since I never have before. But they ended up being pretty easy. They were so flaky and yummy. They are more like a biscuit because they aren't overly sweet. 

We also had strawberries and mimosas too!

Here's my plate. It filled me up and was tasty.

We spent the morning watching the parade and the dog show. Just hanging out, really. It was low key but still a lot of fun! Can you tell we love a bold brow??

My people.

The snapchat filters were on point for Thanksgiving.

We all wore textured, black, tights. Also, those mimosas were delicious!

My parents brought my puppy too. She was a little weirded out by her new surroundings but found a great perch on my bed.

Unfortunately, I had to work on! Friday night I stayed in and relaxed in preparation for Saturday's big rivalry game. Clemson's biggest rival is the University of South Carolina. So on Saturday morning we packed up and headed to Columbia! Our seats were pretty rough but hey anything to see my Tigers!

Two of the biggest Clemson fans you'll ever meet. It was HOT.

They did a memorial for the shooting that took place in Charleston during halftime. It was beautiful. 

Towards the end of the game I moved down to see one of my best friends. 

Here she is! I love her even though she's a chicken fan ;).

So listen, I'm not typically a spontaneous person. I like plans and structure but since graduating I've been more intentional about being spontaneous when it's appropriate. Well, Friday night was a night for spontaneity! I saw so many of my high school friends at the game and really wanted to go out with them. So I headed back to Charlotte to get my things and drop off my friend and drove right back to Columbia. Absolutely insane, I know. But why the heck not?? I got to see so many old friends and had a blast!

At the end of the night...yikes!

We've known each other since Kindergarten.

Such bizarre snapchat filters! 

Love them.

We had a blast. Sunday morning I drove back to Charlotte. Last night, my roomie and I headed to Nordstrom for a cardholder shopping event. They closed the store and had drinks and food walking around. We had a lot of fun!

Life of a lipstick addict. I got the top pink color in the bottom left corner. 

My roomie treated herself to a new purse. She totally deserves it!

My girl.

So life has been full and fun lately. I can't wait for holiday season but first my birthday, which is next week! HOLY SMOKES! Well, thanks for catching up. See you back here Wednesday! xoxo
