Refreshing Weekend

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Here it is, another week! I'm feeling so much more refreshed this week. I had a little weekend getaway, hence the lack of posting on Friday and yesterday!

So my weekend getaway was down to Charleston, obviously. Where else would I want to go?! My friend Lisa and I went down on Friday afternoon. Talk about one long trip, I couldn't wait to get there and be in John's arms!

There are so many little things that made this weekend great. I don't want to bore y'all with the small stuff, but I feel like I should explain some! So here it goes. Bare with me if it gets boring. I promise I will try not to be so mushy and lovey-dovey!

When Lisa and I got to Charleston, her boyfriend Clint aka one of John's friends was still at work. We waited around for a little bit but eventually went for midnight breakfast at Waffle House. How much better can waffles at 12:30 am get?! John wanted to play the jukebox while we waited for Clint and Lisa to get the restaurant. His first song was Carolina by Parmalee. That is one of my favorite songs and just reminds me of John and I. He usually sings it to me in the car. It was one of those moments that makes me fall just a little more for him.

Saturday a whole group of us were going camping. Clint had made reservations for Short Stay, a military campground a few miles outside of Charleston. John had wanted to leave around 11 on Saturday so we could get there and get set up and have most of the day to relax and do whatever we wanted. Well that was the plan at least. 11 rolled around and nobody had gotten there. I started checking on them to see where they were. In the mean time, John and I had been watching New Girl. As I was frantically texting everybody John... well he was sawing some zzz's.

Eventually we got there and got all set up. John and I relaxed in his hammock; it was so nice to just be able to lay in his arms and look up at the sky. Though it was short lived as he got up to go tend to the grill and cook us dinner. I have a grill master on my hands. Not that I'm complaining. After dinner we played games and made s'mores. I love just sitting around the campfire with friends having a good time.

Sunday John and all the guys went fishing while us girls went to the beach. It wasn't a great day for the beach. It got cloudy and looked like it was going to rain, but we sat out there and talked. Lisa and I already know pretty much everything there is to know about each other, but we became friends with Aranza, one of John's co-workers who is also dating one of John's friends.

After packing up all of the camping stuff, Aranza and I made plans for a double date dinner. It was a nice dinner at Jim n Nicks. I got to know her a little more and John and Micah got to talk all about their fishing/kayaking adventures and how they now want to get kayaks so they can go out whenever they wanted.

After dinner John and I sat up and talked a little about everything. It sounds so boring but it was honestly one of my favorite parts of the weekend, minus the back massage John gave me. I had such a great weekend and I now feel refreshed and ready for this week. Good thing to since today is my first official day of work!

I promise the rest of the week won't be as boring!
