Yeah, We’re Fancy.

April 12, 2011 · 40 comments

I had quite the weekend in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

fancy shmancy

But let’s get serious, who wouldn’t be down for a weekend of sunshine, beach activities, dancing, drinks, and fancy dresses at a tropical Hilton resort with a bunch of Sig Ep goofballs from UGA?

the first beach lovin’ of 2011. ah yeah!

If you’re thinking that clipboard of fun is right up my alley, you’re oh so right. And I think this group is officially my favorite bunch of goofballs.


We’re starting a club for social unacceptability.


Especially Matt, cause he gave my blog some lovin’ (everyone in my life who gives some props to the blog gets extra brownie points, duh).

we planned a run. it may not have happened.

I like them. Even if they are all Braves fans.

After some fun activities around the hotel on Friday night and a fun day at the beach on Saturday, it was time to get gussied up for the Sig Ep formal of 2011.

And guess who found herself a hair CHAMPION? This giiiirl!

[That's right. The Phils defeated the Braves 10-2 on Saturday, so I naturally donned my Phils apparel and my "I'm from a South Jersey suburb outside of Philadelphia" proud face. They were unimpressed. I loved every minute of it.]

I went with the “side-favoring” bun to go with my one-shoulder dress.

Dear Becca, you’re a huge life-saver. Thank yooooou!

Once we were all ready-eady, we took lots of pictures and got ourselves ready for some dancin’.

Ready to rock.

Thomas and I rocked that dance flo’!

Sig Ep love.

It was so good to see these guys haven’t changed since I saw them last.

the first time we all met. awww.

I am aware my date’s the bomb.com. he got me Andre.

the Hilton entertained us with their really creative birdie statues…

and danced with this cutie… (her name is Dallas. how cool?)

our table of fun

It all ended too soon on Sunday when I had to drive back home. And now it’s back to the grind of work and runs. Hello, real world. I haven’t missed you one bit.

On the upside, I get to spend time with some of my favorite girlfriends this upcoming weekend. Aren’t weekdays so much better when you’ve got something to look forward to?

And Lisa-Marie gets lots and lots and lots of love for staying with my baby all weekend. My favorite update I got from her was, “I don’t know how you get anything done.”

Chloe and her favorite weekend babysitter

That’s the thing… I don’t. ;)

“DON’T YOU EVER LEAVE ME. EVER AGAIN.”

Chloe’s frantic jumps made it clear she was a little put off by my weekend departure.

Tonight, Mama Gin is coming to VA Beach to pick up Chloe to take her to Boot Camp where she will be trained for 4-6 weeks with her breeder. The coolest part? She gets to do it with her doggy mom. I’m really going to miss her while she’s off learning how to be a lady.

I was especially thankful for her upcoming training when she jumped up towards the stove this morning and TURNED A BURNER ON. Yowza.

Did you get to experience Greek Life in college? I was an officer of my “Society,” (Delphi, whatwhat!) but we didn’t have Greek Life. I’m feelin’ like I totally missed out.

Need some new tunes? I probably listened to my new favorite song about 30 times on my drive this weekend. I was also introduced to some sa-weet dance music. Download Digital Love by Daft Punk, Dirty Talk by Wynter Gordon, Hello by Martin Solveig & Dragonette, and Give Me Everything by Pitbull. And then get ready to dance.

You’re a freaking bombshell. That is all.

Wait, I lied. That’s not all. I did partake in sorority festivities (alongside Ashley Jones (Oh, Jones..)) It was fun most of the time! And dramatic 100% of the time. My best friend is my sorority sister and I tell her that she’s the most expensive thing I’ve ever bought ;)

Holy monkeybrains i am SO excited to check out those new tunes you suggested…. i’ve been in the need of some new jams! Esp with the 26.2 miles coming up –there’s nothing more motivating than good music!

Also, your beach weekend looked like sooooooooooo much fine!!! I hope there’s more dancing in store this weekend… b/c i’m in some major need of a night of dancing!!!
