I'm so glad you're excited to read everything!
Hahaha I KNOW, right?! They have the same face shape, the same hair, and sometimes he sounds like Cory when he talks. It's way too funny. I love it.

Hooray! Thank you so much! Haha thank goodness! I hope this isn't too much for everyone to read, but I have to get this one and the Christmas one done quickly. So many trip reports to write! (not that that's a bad thing, though!)

Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked them!

Pre-Hilton Head Update #1: GEORGIA
August 11th-17th, 2012

Alright, these couple updates are for people who have been following along with me in my previous trip reports/want to hear about my trip to visit Preston. Feel free to skip over the Georgia portions if you don't care about my personal life. I mean, there are some DISNEY STORE pictures within the updates... but really, don't feel obligated to read about my love-struck self.

Like I said, Preston and I were separated for THREE WHOLE MONTHS - from May 11th to August 11th. I seriously cannot believe we did it! Thankfully, this boy is great with communication so we talked all of the time. It was just really hard being apart!

Like I said before, I had a CRAZY summer. In June I took 3 online classes. (Biology, Ethics, and Spanish) I also worked my job at an ice cream place near my house. Then throughout July - August 10th I worked at the Town Recreation as a camp counselor. The day after Recreation finished up, I hopped on a plane to Georgia!

The night before I left, I did my nails all fancy. Although I didn't do Disney nails this time, I painted SUNSET nails! I had sailboats on my thumbs, seagulls on my middle fingers, and palm trees on my ring fingers.



August 11th, 2012
AUGUST 11TH YAY YAY YAY! The long awaited day was finally here and my mind could not process that it was reality. At 11 am, Dad drove me to the airport. I got there and he watched me go through security by myself. This was my first solo flight ever!

Once I got through security, I went to go get some food. I was HUNGRY! I was looking at the very overpriced menu and then I saw SWEET POTATO FRIES! Hello, favorite food! I got those and ate every last one all by myself!



I sat at the same exact table Kristen, Vickie, my Mom, and I sat at before our January trip! Once I finished my delicious food, I went over to the gate. We were boarding a few minutes later! I was in Row 18 on Airtran and I sat next to a cute old couple. I felt very safe on my first flight alone. The stewardess LOVED my nails and it pretty much made my day.

The flight took off, I took a little nap, I edited the Crystal Palace portion of the May video, and then I was arriving in Atlanta! WOOHOO!

I got off the plane and walked for what seemed like forever to the ďdomestic baggage claim.Ē

Finally I got there and saw Preston waiting for me. We saw each other, I waved, we smiled, and he walked over to me. He was just like "come here!" and he gave me the biggest hug ever. It was the greatest. It was like no time had passed at all and we completely picked up where we left off.

We walked out of the airport and went to his car. In the front seat, there was a bouquet of blue, red, and yellow flowers sitting there for me. They were SO beautiful. (:



Preston lives about 2 hours from Atlanta so it was time to start driving! We stopped at Zaxbyís on the way home because I was starving and I had never been there before. It's one of those southern restaurants that we don't have up here in the north! I got a Grilled Chicken sandwich and some DELICIOUS french fries nom.

Then we started getting near Prestonís house and the scenery was GORGEOUS. He lives in the mountains, right near the border of Georgia and North Carolina. We were surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and green mountainsÖ it was absolutely unreal! Gotta love dating a southern boy!

Then we got to his house and I said hi to his family. We brought everything into my very own guest room and then we went for a walk. His house is on the boarding school campus that his Dad works at, so we got to go around and see everything. The school is INCREDIBLE. I am honestly a little jealous that I didn't go there. Itís so pretty and itís right in the mountains. I couldnít believe it! Here is the view:



YEAH. RIGHT!?

We ran into one of his history teachers and he showed us around the inside of the building, which was gorgeous as well. We got back to Preston's house and just hung out for the rest of the night. I was so tired after traveling all day and we were so happy to be back together after three long months!

August 12th, 2012
We woke up and had blueberry bagels for breakfast. NOM. I met Prestonís best friend Drew who was on his way to Virginia to visit his girlfriend/Prestonís cousin, Ileah.

I literally canít remember what we did during the day, but we went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner called La CabaŮa. YUM! The chips, cheese, and salsa were the best! We both got quesadillas for our meals. Before we left, we bought some ring pops and suckers. YAY CANDY!!

We went to Walmart and got some stuff I needed for the week. We went back home and Preston and I played Scrabble. I played the word ďFavoriteĒ for 95 POINTS!!!! Basically Iím awesome. Except Preston still beat me by 100 points! Heís borderline professional at Scrabble. It's kind of insane.

Then Prestonís friend Randi came over with her dog Beau. HE WAS SO CUTE. Heís a blue heeler and he was so tiny! He peed on the floor so when Preston was swiffering it up, he kept chasing the swiffer and falling on the floor. SUCH A CUTE PUPPY.



After she left, Preston made some smoothies and we watched some Saved By the Bell and Fairly Odd Parents on Netflix. It was a solid time.

August 13th, 2012
We went to the restaurant Preston works at for breakfast/lunch. Itís about a 30 minute drive through the windy mountains. I got a kidís grilled cheese and sweet potato fries and Preston got French Toast. Everything was REALLY good. That was probably one of the best grilled cheeses Iíve ever had!

After we left there, we went to the little Ice Cream/Chocolate shop called Kilwins that was down the street. I got some cake batter and highlands mud, and Preston got highlands mud ice cream. It was yummy! (I sincerely apologize for not taking food pictures. Clearly I was not in my right mind.)

On the way home we stopped by this beautiful waterfall called Bridal Veil falls. I couldn't get over how stunning this whole area was!



Then we went over to the dance sign ups at the high school so I could meet Prestonís brotherís girlfriend, Katie, and Prestonís director, Mr. Patti. Mr. Patti and his wife went to our college for theater, (just like us!) so they were chatting with us about all of the teachers and the program and such. He was SUCH a nice guy and he's the reason why Preston treks 16 hours north to go to college. Iím so glad I could to meet him because he has had such a huge influence on Prestonís life.

Once we left it was raining so we went back to Preston's house. I got changed and we waited for his brother and Dad to get home. Around 9 we went out to dinner at this place called Universal Joint and I got a mushroom burger and TATER TOTS YUUUUUM.

August 14th, 2012
This morning I woke up around 10, showered and got ready. We knew that we were driving Prestonís Mom to Charlotte, NC that day so basically we just waited around until she was ready to go. She was going to Alaska the next day with her business partner, Decker. They record stock footage and sell it to companies, so they get to travel all over!

We left around 4 or 4:30 pm, and we stopped at Chick-Fil-A for our dinner! YAY! That was my first time ever at Chick-Fil-A and it was really yummy! Preston absolutely loves that place and we donít have it up in the north! It was basically his mission since day 1 to get me to try Chick-Fil-A.



I got the Char-grilled Chicken Sandwich and waffle fries. Everything was SO delicious! I loved it! It's a shame that we don't have any near me!



For dessert, we got THE BEST CANDY BAR EVER when we stopped to refill the gas tank. It had been years since I had one of these babies! You canít go wrong with a Hersheyís Cookies and Cream bar! Theyíre like pure magic!



We drove and drove and finally arrived in Charlotte, NC. Before we got to Deckerís house, we had to stop at THE DISNEY STORE at the Concord Mills Mall! They closed at nine and we didnít want to miss out!



So we went there and I DIED. First off, I realized there was a sale. Then I realized that IT WAS A DISNEYLAND OUTLET! I mean, if I couldnít go to Disneyland, this was the next best thing!!



For those of you who weren't aware, I was supposed to go to Disneyland at the end of this summer. We had to move the trip to December due to some money/attendance issues. My Dad still wanted to go on vacation in August, but he wanted something within driving distance. So that is how Hilton Head came to be! We are currently saving up for the big Disneyland trip later!

I mean, I wasn't mad we had to move the trip... but this Disneyland Outlet DEFINITELY made up for having to postpone it!!!

I basically bought out the whole store. BUT I MEAN, THE SWEATSHIRTS WERE ONLY 9.99!!!! HOW COULD I RESIST!?!?! Usually they're like $34.99 in the parks!!! Seriously, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. It was GREAT!

I'm guessing you all want to see what I got, right? Well, OBVIOUSLY! It's picture time!

Here are all of my Disneyland sweatshirts - like I said, each one was only $9.99!











My Minnie Mouse Shirt for only $5:



Minnie Mouse Tank Top that was $16.50 (I think?):



Plates that were only $3 each:



Totes that were 2 for $5:



Beach Towels that were $7.99 each:





$3 Cup and $2 Monorail Auto Magnets:



And I think that's about it!
