South Carolina, Day 2

Friday morning, I got to sleep in. I mean, really sleep in. I didn't get up until almost 10 am. It was so beautiful. DS's mom got us a box of Krispy Kreme donuts, which made for a good start to the day. Then we packed up our climbing gear and drove back to Columbia to take his mom rock climbing. Yeah, that's right, his 55 year old mom went rock climbing with us. She's so cool. I'm really impressed too, because most people freak out halfway up on their first try, and want to come back down. But she perservered and made it to the top of her 40' climb. It was good for me too, because the way my work schedule has been going lately, I haven't been to the gym in months. We worked out after the climb, and boy are my abs sore!

After that, we drove back to Aiken (where his parents actually live) to shower and rest a bit. Then his sister picked me up, and we drove to Augusta to pick out a flower girl dress for his niece. She is SO adorable. I can't wait to see her all done up. We keep telling her that she's going to get to be a princess, and she wants to wear a crown and everything. She tried on 5 dresses, and told us matter of factly that she was prepared to take home 2 of them. I guess one isn't so bad, especially since she gets to play dress up in it after the wedding. She was also very enthralled with her mom's bridesmaid dresses, and spent some time picking out dresses for Granny Jane. As it turns out, it's a good thing she's not in charge of picking out dresses, because she picked out the worst pinks and oranges I have ever seen!

After some sushi and martinis, I was dropped off back with DS, where we spent the night partying with his long time friend Shawn and his wife. They told us how awful marriage is (because they're sweet like that), and we enjoyed some rum and coke while DS kicked his butt repeatedly in various XBox 360 games. Shawn talks a lot of smack, but somehow always manages to lose... :)

Today, it's teeth cleaning (his brother-in-law is a dentist) and then back to Columbia for some partying with his old college buddies. Hurrah!

After the booze and the donuts the dentist is a great next step! :-) Sounds like fun.
