Friday Fancies: Dancin', Shaggin' on the Boulevard

Oh hello my lovelies!
I apologize for my absence.  I came home, home on Tuesday.  And, when I am home I don't think about anything or than relaxing.  Thoughts of school and blogging go out the window.  But, I must share with y'all my Friday Fancies and my plans for tonight.  I promise I will post on my NASCAR adventure very soon.  Those of you who are friends with me IRL or on the Book have already seen the some of the shenanigans from last weekend.

Tonight, the Swinging Medallions will be playing at the local Farmer's Market shed.  I grew up listening to the Swingin' Medallions and other beach music bands with my parents.  Beach Music is a special variety of music only found in coastal states of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and some parts of Virginia.  The Medallions are from the Greenwood, SC area.  They have been around since the late 1960s.  My dad was friends with some of the original band members.  The sons and close relatives of the original band members make up the now-Medallions.  And not just any dance will do for this kind of have to be shaggin'. {see here}

Here is the Medallions performing their most famous song "Double Shot of My Baby's Love" last year...

Though, {av} is off to California for is still my Friday Fancies for this week.

Rather than actually dancing the night away {I really wish I was}, I will be working the beer truck.  Gotta make them dolla dolla bills.  My mom is good friends with the lady that is the head of the Chamber of Commerce, who is putting on the event.  Therefore, I got volunteered to work.  Somewhat complaining and somewhat not complaining....I will be getting paid {plus tips}, yet it won't be near as fun as dancing all night.

Y'all got anything excited planned this weekend?

I get to spend all day tomorrow with my little man and I am so excited.  We are going to swim in the pool all day.  He will be good and tired for his mom...she will love it!



  1. I love that outfit, especially that starfish cuff!

    Tonight we are grabbing drinks with some friends who moved away and are in town visiting...the rest of the weekend involves getting the house ready for lots of guests next weekend for J's graduation :)

    Have a great weekend and have fun at the pool--after a long winter and non-existent Spring around here, that sounds fabulous!

  2. Sounds like a fun weekend..I bet the beer truck will be fun! I love that Starfish Cuff! Tonight we have our RA Banquet, and then tomorrow I'm going home- we're going to go to the Picasso exhibit at the VA Museum of Fine Arts and out to dinner and will also celebrate my mom's birthday! Should be a good weekend!

  3. I love Beach Music! It's sadly not that big up here in VA but when I go to camp in SC we take shagging lessons and listen to beach music the whole summer! Love that starfish cuff! XO

  4. Have fun! I don't know what beach music is (I'm from Michigan), but it sounds like it would be awesome!

  5. Sounds like such a great weekend! I hope you made tons of money!

    P.S. I love those DY earrings!

  6. ahh soo much fun! I love beach music. It's in our blood!

  7. you seriously always have the most exciting weekend plans/FF titles. Shagging on the Boulevard!? SIGN ME UP. I may be a little slow, but it doesn't take away from how much I love that dress. SWOON. xoxo {av}
