Great buys!

Over the week, I have bought a jacket at Wal-Mart and two pairs of shoes. I never really shop at Wal-Mart for clothing, but while my mum was searching for winter wear, I decided to look, too. I ended up getting a grey jacket, that's soo soft and cozy. Im even wearing it right now! I swear, it feels much better then my exspensive North Face jacket I received last Christmas. The quality of the jacket isn't bad either for only $18. I loveee wearing it, im thinking about going to get another one. Then there's my new shoes , one pair is from Wal-Mart which I got for only $5 and the other pair is American Eagle cloth clogs from Marshalls for only $7. Here some pictures of them :)

Wow, what a weekend!

This weekend turned out to be lots of funnn! It was my friend's Sweet Sixteenth Birthday on Thursday, so on Friday, we celebrated it by getting veryyy fancy & going out to eat at Bateaux! *Which is a very expensive restaurant in Port Royal*. I had such an amazing night! It was an all girl's night out, just having fun, eating tasty dishes, such as; oysters, potato's, vegetable pad thai noodles with egg plant dumplings, bread, ribeye (which I didn't try but heard it was perfect) and ofcourse cake & champagne!

Here are a few pictures I took.

My Saturday consisted of cleaning the house because Jake, my boyfriend, was finally coming over!!! We watched two movies, Four Brothers & Knocked Up on the living room floor . Mum cooked us up some delicious shrimp, with cucumber salad, corn and mashed potato's. *She also made a carrot cake*. Then that night I went to go Partaaay at Sasha's! Sunday consisted of sleeping on the living room floor all-day while the movie Flushed Away played over and over again.

Good Morning!

.. It's pretty earrrrrly in the morning for me to be up, but I have a job.. and it sucks! I thought I would write something since I haven't in a couple of days. But I have been working A Lot ! Oh yay- But it's not really that bad, all I have to do is go under a house, I have to take grout out between tiles in the bathroom; while my hands & back ache.. I heard next week im going to be sealing duct work. I can't wait!! Other then working this week, nothing has happened. I am going to a dinner tonight for a friend's birthday, so that will be nice. Then I am coming home & sleeping!

This is the house on Bray's Island that I have been working at. It's huge! You can't really tell .. but it is. The house on the left , is a four bedroom guest house. In the main house there is only two bedrooms, and lots of sitting rooms. I don't care for it at all, it's way too big. I do like their 3-car garage, it has a cute bathroom, and a pretty nice size storage room.

Anyways, I must be running off to my lovely job! Here's a picture I took yesterday on the way home from work. It's off the Whale Branch River. :)

So my boyfriend, Jake, took me to Yes! Thai Indeed restaurant on Boundary Sreet, downtown! Even though it's a little restaurant, it's quite exspensive! But very tasty! I love how small it is , it feels romantic, with dimmed lights, and candles. Best service, probably cause I know everyone that works there. (Jake used to work there but now works at a new restaurant called Bricks). I got stir fried veggies with pad thai noodles, yumm! I would have taken a picture but I didn't want to be rude.
Then his boss brought us out dessert, ha! It was fried ice cream, over a donut with red little heart sauce. Adorable-
I can't wait to go back!

Anyways, I have started up running again! I have been running for three days in a row and just feel so alive. Tomorrow i'll probably take a break, I don't want to over do it. My legs are already worn out. Plus I have to water plants in New Point, :(

Mmm Shrimp!

October 3-4 was the Beaufort Shrimp Festival 08' !
The Beaufort Shrimp Festival is set for October 3-4, 2008 in historic downtown Beaufort. Plenty of shrimp will make this 14th annual event unforgettable.
The event opens with a free concert in the park Friday evening and includes a run and walk Saturday morning. Then the festival continues with free music, entertainment for kids, peeling contests and plenty of shrimp to eat. Enjoy local recipes and tastings from a dozen restaurants!
Here are some pictures I took-

I got to tour the Georgie Shrimp Boat :)

My good ol' friend Bill.

The free band that was playing.Myself at the coffe' shop, Common Ground.

The Shrimp Festival was a lot of free fun! And tasty! I wish Beaufort held more events like this. It was actually better then Water Festival believe it or not. The next even is Night on the Town- I can't wait!

A fall morning..

It was quite nice and cool earlier this morning.. now it's turning hot again. But like I said , Beaufort never gets a fall .. it's either really hot or really cold. Anyways, it's the weekend! So im HAPPY! : ) Since it's October , I guess I should start decorating a little outside. Haning up some skeleton's on the tree's, putting spider webs all over the place, pumpkin displays.. (I do the outside, mum does the inside).
Actually I took some pictures of what she did-

Anyways, I must be running off !! I'll post later tonight :D

Update Please !

So I know it's been close to a month since I have posted anything, it's just that I am clueless when it comes to posting things everyday or every other day. Buttt, there is an update! I partied a little too hard a few weekends ago and ended up hurting my neck on a hammock, never try to jumping onto a swinging hammock backwards! So I was out for a few days..

Then my parents just bought a new refrigerator , and finally got rid of our 13 year old one! ( It's a Fisher Paykel). It's mighty little compaired to our other one. But it's super nice!.. It just doesn't have a ice machine.. only water! What's up with that!?

I'll post pictures of it when our kitchen is a little closer to being finished -

It's finally October!! Im super siked, it's one of my favorite holidays! I am so happy because there's so much to do in October! Like search for costumes (I bought my boyfriend and I banana costumes for Halloween!) . You can decorate the house with fall colors, and Halloweenish gestures! Oh, I forgot to mention.. I turned the back of a Season's Greeting's sign into a R.I.P. tomb stone!

TaDa! :)

Well I must run, my boyfriend is taking me out to dinner!
