Week in review..

So as some of you may know last tuesday I was laid off from my job and I have been spending the past week looking for jobs. Fortunately I had a fun weekend to break things up and get my mind off things. I went to Dataw Island (Beaufort) for my friend Carol's bachelorette weekend. We had a lot of fun. Drank LOTS of wine. Flipped over a golf cart. Broke my camera :( tried to fix my camera and shocked myself. NOTE: do not try to fix your own camera after drinking lots of wine by unscrewing every screw and thinking you know what you are doing. I took a couple of picture before the camera broke, however since the camera is broken I cannot upload the pictures. It was a nice weekend and we had Beautiful weather and it had been a while since I had seen the beach or the sun. Then last night Mike finally bit the bullet and bought a new car. Well not completely new but a 2004 Ford F-150 Lariat. It is very big, grey/blue in color, leather interior, extended cab with all the bells and wistles. Needless to say it's a lot more comfortable than the Danger Ranger. And the best part about the truck was that I got to drive it home because I could not drive the Ranger home because I do not know how to drive a stick shift. At one point on the drive home (from Two Notch rd. so like a 25 min drive) Mike was in front of me and and called him on the phone and said "Beep Beep move out the way I am going to run over your little peanut truck." It was funny I felt so high and big up in that truck. It may be a while before there are pictures on here, but we will see I don't know how long I can live without a camera. But then again, I don't have a job to afford it. If anyone knows any leads for jobs in columbia please let me know.

The Chicken Man and the Flea Market

Over the past few weeks Mike and I have been (cheaply) looking for art to put on our walls.

Yesterday we made a stop by Ernest Lee "The Chickenman" to see if he would paint a picture of Tank. Not only did he paint the picture....

he gave us these 3 for free! We were extremely excited and it was well worth it!

A couple of weekends ago we went to the Barnyard Flea Market to see if they had any pictures. When we were arrived we were very excited to see everything was half off so we got two pictures for our bedroom, which was pretty bare. One is of the Battery in Charleston at night.

The other is a picture of a marsh and sunset. It was hard to show these pictures because my flash was bouncing off the glass and then when i turned my flash off you could still see the ceiling fan lights. Wish they were better.

Needless to say I think we did pretty well. We still have some bare walls, but they are coming along!!
