Gooo Panthers!

I had the wonderful privilege of going to another Panthers game! This was a special game for several reasons: 1) It was Panthers vs. Redskins --I am a Panthers fan and Marshall is a Redskins fan 2) I got to see my mom who I don't get to see as often now that I've moved 3) My cousin Richard was coming to this game who I only get to see like 2 times a year! So, yeah! I was pretty pumped about making the trip to Charlotte! It was a BEAUTIFUL day! High of 70, sunshine... gorgeous! Me, Marshall, Mom, George, Richard, my Aunt Bobetta, and my Uncle Bash all were able to go to the game, which made it so much fun! I loved getting the chance to spend time with my Mom and Richard! We also had an interesting lady sitting in front of us who entertained Marshall, Richard, and I the entire time we were there. Needless to say, every time a song came on the loudspeaker she felt the need to stand up and shake everything she had! HAHA! Luckily, Richard captured this on video and sent it to my phone for me since he, in his words, "thought I might want to have for my personal library" - If anyone is interested in this video, I will be happy to share :) Anyway, here are some pictures from our trip...

Life in Cheraw

Well, life in Cheraw. Hmm. Where do I begin? First of all, we L.O.V.E. it here. It is certainly a small town, but there are definitely perks to living here. I think I could drive around and look at the historic houses all day. It never gets old. Next, We LOVE our church family here. They are so welcoming, loving, supportive, caring, fun. I could go on and on. If you have seen Friday Night Lights, I think of our town similar to Dillon, Texas. On Friday nights, everyone is at the high school football game. Yes, I did say THE high school. As in ONE. Yes, there are only a few choices of places to eat and we have to drive into Florence if we want any big restaurants. We do have a GREAT mexican restaurant that everyone just calls "mexican" haha... because it's the only one in town. A couple weeks ago I went and took pictures in our downtown area. It is such a cute little area and reminds me of Boone's downtown streets. Anyway, here is our life through pictures.

Our front door to our rental house. The summer wreath I made via Pinterest (love!) (please excuse myself in the door reflection...)

A view from one side of the downtown area. It's several streets. This is a restaurant called the Rack Shack.
Our favorite restaurant "The Rivers Edge". They make everything homemade to the butter, bread and peanut butter. Y-U-M!

Another view. They say in the Spring when the azalea's are blooming it is beautiful!

Another view outside River's Edge.
