I couldn’t have gotten home at a better time from my cruise…the day we pulled in was the day the weather turned for the worse here! Thankfully the rain stayed away for the most part on Friday which was perfect because we had a Trunk Show planned at the store (Simply J Boutique) for the weekend with Henry & Belle Jeans and Betsy Pittard Jewelry. We had such a great turn out and a great time on Friday and I was super excited about the rest of the weekend, but alas, Mother Nature had other plans. Our friend Megan (who is also the sales manager for Henry & Belle) flew in from Chicago for the trunk show and was staying with us for the weekend. The rain started pouring Friday around 5pm so we decided to start pouring the wine…ha ha! Priorities right!?
She introduced us to this amazing wine and it is now going to be my “spoil me” wine:
We woke up Saturday to the worst case scenario according to the local weather people. Thankfully Megan was able to get on an earlier flight through DC to get home to Chicago; otherwise she was going to be stuck with us for a few extra days! When I say that it rained ALL DAY I’m not exaggerating at all! It started flooding and we were unable to go anywhere or do anything Saturday or Sunday. Thankfully our house is at a higher point in our neighborhood so we didn’t have any major flooding – just some standing water in the yard. I have to admit that I did love all the extra time with my girls and hubs this weekend – I missed them so much last week!
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it or not in previous posts, but we’re HUGE Carolina Panthers fans!!! Jules and I were talking about Buffalo Chicken Dip on the cruise last week so I made one for the game, it’s my absolute favorite dip and it’s so easy to make!
I might have to make it for every away game since the boys WON….we’re 4-0 BABY!!!!!
The rain didn’t stop overnight on Sunday so schools and businesses were closed again on Monday. This is when everything got very serious; major flooding in North Charleston and then Georgetown and Columbia got it so quickly that emergency evacuations had to happen.
We’re counting our blessings here for sure, but also saying prayers for all those that have been affected.
