St. Patty’s Day in Charleston.

Weekend Recap

My roommate (Leah), her boyfriend (Zack), and I went to Charleston this past weekend to visit a college friend of ours (Amanda, also known as Afed). And to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2012! We had so much fun!

Folly Beach Pier.

Saturday morning we woke up and headed straight to Folly Beach, where we immediately got in the St. Patty’s Day spirit seeing all the green attire. We were all starving so we literally waited oustide Taco Boy until they opened. Started off the morning right with a margarita followed by two of the most delicious tacos I’ve ever had! I had a grilled Mahi-Mahi taco and their Obrero, which was black bean and spicy amazingness.

this one actually had a little pineapple in it!

We hung out at the beach all day before heading back to Amanda’s and shower. After a small freak out that we had lost Afed’s phone (thankfully, we did not!), we drove to downtown Charleston to meet Leah and Zack for dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. Time got away from us, and it was almost 9:30 before we sat down to order. We were ravenous! We ordered Seafood Hush Pups and the Shrimp Shack Mac and Cheese to start, and I got the Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi. There was no talking at our table for a good 5 min. while we scarfed it down. Delicious!

Midway through. No evidence of any mashed potatoes.

Then we sampled a bit of Miami before meeting up with some of Zach’s friends at a bar downtown. Good end to a great day!

I am far too in love with this bottle!

Sunday morning, I woke up and headed to the beach with Cedar while everyone else was still asleep. Gosh, I wish I could sleep past 8:00 a.m.! But this was worth it.

Roll, Pitch, Yaw.

This is what I did at work yesterday.

roll, pitch, yaw. confused? 🙂

Yep, I relearned which parts of an airplane control how it moves through the air. Ailerons, flaps, slats, rudder, elevator. Also, the ins and outs of jet engines, turboprops, reciprocating engines. Ah the joys of working for an air-taxi company. Actually, I find this stuff really interesting, and am glad our operations guy can dumb it down to a place I can understand!

Working for ImagineAir has been such a blessing for me over the past couple years. It was my first “big girl” job, and I gained valuable experience there back in 2009-2010. Then they came to my rescue again by letting me work part time before I begin Teach for America this summer. They are the best! Definitely check them out. Also, look what randomly got delivered to the office yesterday.

Yummm. 🙂

It was for Romeo’s Pizza, a new pizza place in Lawrenceville. What a great marketing strategy! I really want to try that veggie pizza. Eggplant and goat cheese? Yes, please.
