another weekend recap

Anyone that knows anything about Clemson, SC knows that there is something in these hills.  Recently, though, it seems like that something has had a special interest in athletics.  Our football team is officially 4-0, and our schedule hasn't been a sinch by any means.  We beat Wofford, Auburn, and now, FSU.

This past weekend was Parent's Weekend in good ole' Tigertown, so both Cameron and my family were in town.  We decided to plan a little family tailgate.  Heres some pics! 

This weekend, Cameron and I are planning on heading to Blacksburg, VA for the Clemson vs. Virginia Tech game for our 1 year anniversary.  GO TIGERS!

wedding... thursday?

I have recently developed a seemingly unhealthy (due to the potential for procrastination) obsession with pinterest.  I'm talkin "where did those 3 hours go?" obsession status.  One good thing about it, however, is that I think I have my wedding about planned out.  You know, the metaphorical one that doesn't even have a proposal to stand on.  Hey, a girl can plan.  

This is exactly what I am thinkin..

Just another mundane monday..

I am pretty sure I have expressed my hatred for Mondays before on this blog, but incase I haven't done it enough... I HATE Mondays.  It means it is the beginning of another week of school is starting and that Cameron just drove away from my apartment less than 24 hours ago for another week.  Bleh.

Anyways, I am stuck in the library (very clearly studying) for a test I have tomorrow.  Sad thing is, this is the highlight of my week.  Literally from now on, I will have nothing planned for my weeknights.  I need a hobby.

This weekend was a good one though.  Cameron headed up Friday night, we hung out, and went to bed early because we had the big 12:00 Auburn game coming up the next day.  Things get interesting in Clemson, SC at 8 am on a gameday.  It was a little chilly, but ended up being a nice day.  Here's some pics:

Me and Cameron with our nephew-dog Riggs

This is me and my old roommate Fletcher! Check out her new blog!

Riggs belongs to Fletcher and her boyfriend, Eric.  Needless to say, he was the main focus of our tailgating on Saturday.  

Eric got Riggs just in time, because I have been chomping at the bit to get a puppy for a long time now.  With school limiting my time and disposable income, it hasn't been possible.  Thanks to Eric, I can get my puppy fix.

trend alert!

I took the plunge..

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Hair South in Clemson, I have 2 orange feathers accompanying my gingerish locks.  It was interesting getting used to how to style my hair with it in at first (the metal bead holding it in will show if you aren't careful). But, since these things are so durable (you can wash them, curl them, straighten them), I decided to curl out the ends so that it shows just enough.

I think my boys will be really happy with the new addition.  GO TIGERS!

all the rage

If it hasn't already been made obvious by my lack of dedication to this blog lately, the direction I am taking with it will be changing a little bit.  Being back at school and being SUPER busy beyond belief, most of my future posts will be updates on my crazy life.

I also just recently joined  I am absolutely obsessed, so follow me!

Last night, I had a bunch of my friends from freshman year over for Fiesta night.  We hadn't seen each other or all been in the same room in like 3 years, so I planned a little get together.  We had so much fun! We sat around and talked about funny stories and memories (we all lived together in a co-ed dorm, so there was lots to discuss).  It was awesome to catch up!

Also, my best friend and freshman roommate, Ashley, and I are going today to get feather hair extensions.  I have been wanting to for a while, and haven't had the guts.  I think her going with me gave me a little kick in the pants.  I am not sure what color I am going to get yet, but I'll be sure to take pictures of the final results and post them.

Here's where I am drawing some inspiration:

Also, the Clemson vs. Auburn game is this weekend.  GO TIGERS! Stay tuned :)

I promise, I'm still here.

I know that my 2 followers have been chomping at the bit to find out what happened to Jena?! Hah, not really, but I am going to tell you anyways.  I did end up getting my haircut..

 Then I spent a whole week at Folly Beach with Cameron and his family.

I dug a hole for Cameron's niece, Ansley, to play in.

While he fished (shocker).

And we had interesting wildlife encounters with a pelican and some crabs. 

Then it was back to school, and Cameron was staying in Charleston for his co-op (internship) with Bosch.  It has been tough being up at school without him.  But, we get to see each other a lot for football games and other festivities.  Speaking of that..

Clemson beat Troy this weekend! GO TIGERS!
