Spring Break BABY!

Hey girls!

This past weekend, the girls and I headed down to Charleston for Fashion Week! We went to the Bridal Couture Show, and it was so amazing! There was an open bar with Bloody Mary's, Mimosas, and Azaleas! The glasses all had flowers in them, which made the drinks taste so sweet! We sat about 4 rows back from the actual stage, and got these perfect giftbags filled with cute stuff from great stores in Charleston!

Before we got into the show, we were waiting in line outside of the tent! A lady came up to me, and asked if she could take my picture for the Charleston Fashion Week Blog & Magazine!

HELL YEAH she could! I was so so so excited!

She was so nice, we even exchanged blog addresses, and I have added her to my blogroll! You can click the links at the bottom of the page to see the pictures! I was so excited!

Also, we ate at the most beautiful spots! It was so much fun! I just loved the market too! I bought 3 scarves in bright baby blue, pale yellow, and pink!

Also, I bought a Lilly from the Palm Avenue, and when I went to check out, the girl and I knew each other from the Raleigh Palm Avenue! She used to work there, but then came down to Charleston! She is living the dream, how fun!

It was so wonderful to spend Spring Break with the girls, and just have fun without a care in the world!

Here are some great pictures from the show!

Our favorite designer was!..!..!

A finalist in CFW’s Emerging Designer Competition 2008, Carol Hannah Whitfield—an Anderson native and College of Charleston grad—also sewed her way to a finalist spot on season six of Project Runway. Having spent the last seven years making custom bridal and bridesmaid gowns, the self-taught designer is excited to debut her bridal collection at CFW. “A lot of my aesthetic is based on contrasting structure with fluid draping. I like to use fabric manipulation to create embellishment,” says Whitfield, whose pieces are carried at Maddison Row and Bella Bridesmaid.

Hilarious story!!
So, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday the girls and I meet in the Cate Center at the 10am hour to catch up, and hang out before our next classes.
My friend D always makes my day, because she always has a funny story to tell, or reads texts from last night, and they are so much funnier when she reads them!
Anyways, so today she told us this story.
It goes a little something like this...
A guy on her young life team (brother A) has an older brother (brother B) that has downs syndrome. He is highly functional, and lives in a group home.
Brother A got a call from Brother B's work saying they hadnt seen him in 3 days. Brother A got really concerned and kept calling Brother B to see what was going on.
The only thing Brother B would say was "I found a Troll, I cant leave the house or he will escape!"
Well, after 5 days of this "nonsense", brother A decided to go over to Brother B's house and see what the hell was going on...what kind of "Troll" he was hiding!
Well, he got there, and remember, it had been a whole 5 days!
Brother B opened the door and said, I cant let you in, the troll will escape
"Theres no such thing as trolls, said brother A, you are making this up!
Brother B then unbaricaded the door...hence he moved the couch and 2 chairs out of the way, and let brother A in!
Well, Brother A noticed the closet was barricaded too, and went to move B got really angry and said NO the troll is in there...he will escape!
...the only thing that escaped that day was a midget Jehovah's Witness...he apparently knocked on the door to preach his good words, and Brother B genuinely thought his ass was a troll...he got locked in a closet, for 5 days!
He came out screaming, "I'm not a troll you fool...I'm a midget!
...I bet he wont be goin' door to door for quite a while!
*If this story offends you, im truly sorry...but I can't make this stuff up!

Those wedding gowns are beautiful. Looks like an incredibly fun time. I'm jealous.

The dresses you're wearing in both photos are very pretty. You look great!
