I Would Drive 5 Hours For Salt

And by that, I mean....

Salt @ Salt Says! (Not to be confused with the little girl and the umbrella on the navy canister. I can see how you would be confused, though.)

I am still reeling in my jealousy over the epic meet-up of some of my favorite bloggers, Jessalyn @ Cape Cod Awesome, Surferwife @ A Day in the Life of a Surferwife, and Cher @ The Only Girl. I was shoving a chocolate chip cookie in my face, sippin' on some sparkling lemonade, and checking Twitter when I saw this:

T-Minus 24 hours until vacation! Charleston here I come!

Charleston? Charleston, South Carolina? (No offense, Charleston, WV...I would just rather not drive 12 hours to visit you.) I started choking on a chip as I rushed to pull up Google Maps just to see how far Warner Robins is from Charleston. 5 hours? With a very convenient little stop in Savannah 3 hours into the drive? I can so do this! And thus began the email marathon of whether we can bring Salt and Mimosas together.

As it turns out, we can! And Mama Salt will meet Mimosas (AKA Bubbles Friday AKA MagnoliaMimosa) and we, the three of us, shall sit under the stars and drink mojitos like the true southern belles we are. I guess we could drink mimosas, but that takes champagne and that shiz is expensive, yo. Even the $4.99
Barefoot variety. And driving home the next day with that hangover would be disastrous.

Salt and I have even located The Charleston Bead Company, where your two favorite jewelry designers will play to each other's creativity, thus inspiring delightful, whimsical pieces that sparkle in the sun.

Or maybe we'll just laugh at all of their fugly beads and snicker about how we could do
so much better.

Either way, it's going to be the stuff that legends are made of because, really, how could it not??

Tomorrow is Try a New I bought Dragon Fruit at the commissary yesterday. It's definitely a fruit with attitude. AND I have more pictures of the school in Zambia sent to me last night! So much to do! Focus!! Or...just dance about in your boxers and squeal about how much fun Sunday and Monday are going to be. Either way....

PS: Blogger,
I hate you when you won't UN-ITALICIZE. Why must you pee on my parade? THBT!!!!!!!!

  2. WOAH! How exciting! and color me jealous, cause I'd me some M&M/Salt time for real. Stupid work and job that keeps me here in GainesVegas till 5 PM on Fridays :(

    And you can SO hate on Charleston, WV...I do!

  3. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOO stupid jealous right now it's not even hilarious. A) I miss Charleston, Hilton Head, South Carolina, Savannah, and the like... B) You get to meet Salt! The other responsible party for me ever seeing a Vegas showgirl for what she really is... you know, because you attached my head to one!

    I can't WAIT to hear how this goes! AH!

    And WE.WILL have a GTG soon!!

    Can't wait to hear all about your Charleston meet up!!!


    All the cool bloggers are meeting up with each other and I have NO ONE.

    Yes, that's me being a sourpuss.

    Though I'm super excited for you two, I'm still super crazy with envy. Dang it! Why do I have to live all the way down here in Texas!?

    Have fun. For realz.

  6. If I didn't love you both so much I'd hate you.

    Have fun! I hope you can feel my envy whilst you frolic and play in the Southern sun!

  7. How fun is that? While I'm insanely jealous I'm not super close to anyone out here for these things to happen to me, I can't wait to hear all about it and live vicariously through you ladies.

  8. So jealous I can't even see straight. I would so very much like to come along. I'm so sad that I can't that I have to go to be immediately. I expect lots and lots of photos.

  9. Have fun! I have never met another blogger IRL. Tell us how it goes. . .

  10. Yay mini-vacay! Have a fabulous time!

  11. OMG, I'm so jealous! That's awesome you're meeting a fellow blogger, especially one as lovely as THE SALT (I've been following her blog since I've started this thang and well, I just think she's wonderful). I can't wait to read about your jewelry-making and mojito-drinking adventures together. Have a great time :)

  12. AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

    (As you can see, I've already been into the mimosas. Mama Salt says hi and she is stoked to meet you!)

  13. And by "mimosas" I meant "mojitos". Which means that yes I've definitely been into the mojitos.

  14. SO JEALOUS! I hope you gals have a great time. I can't wait to read alllll about it!! THINK OF ME WHEN YOU'RE SIPPING YOUR HEARTS OUT! ox
