Hello there! The trip I went on to Charleston last Thursday-Sunday was a lot of fun, but the time spent in Charleston just flew by. My friend and I drove down Thursday and it took us fourteen hours to get there, and it took the same amount of time on the ride home on Sunday. So, we were really only in Charleston Thursday night-Saturday night. The weather was great! It was sunny while we were there, and in the 70's. We even went on the beach on Saturday afternoon, and I went in the water up to my calves (water was 65 degrees).
I had never been to the Folly Beach section of Charleston before, and I loved it. We stayed pretty much right on the beach; just had to walk a couple of minutes to be on the sand. Folly Beach is about a 25 minute drive from King Street. King Street is the main street in Charleston, filled with restaurants, shopping, and bars. My friend and I walked up and down King Street on Friday morning/afternoon for a few hours, which was nice. Otherwise, we were with the rest of the bachelorette party during Friday & Saturday. My friend and I ate lunch on Friday at Jestine's, which is a famous traditional southern cooking style restaurant there, and we had both been there before. I just got a grilled cheese sandwich, but my friend got the fried chicken. My sandwich was good though, ha.
One mont from today Bob and I are flying to Nashville! I hope it hurries up. I'm SO excited to go, because we had such a blast last year. This year my sister and her soon to be husband will be in Nashville while we're there, so we'll be seeing them, as well as attending the Boogie. The Boogie starts on Thursday, so Tuesday night and all Wednesday Bob and I will be hitting up all the places we want to go to (especially restaurants!), so we can mainly stay at the Boogie the rest of our trip. We'll be going to Monell's, which is a very famous traditional southern style cooking restaurant, and we've never been before. Bob is especially looking forward to going there to eat. We're definitely going to Loveless Wednesday, as well. It's always a MUST for me, and will be my third time going.
Bob's birthday was Wednesday, and Friday after work we went out to a local brew pub for dinner and drinks. This coming Saturday we'll be at his dad's house for a joint birthday bbq for Bob and his brother.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my beloved and much work Trashy Diva Wildflowers Trixie dress, which I got a year ago. I wear it sooo much when the weather is nice. I wore it on the car ride down to Charleston, actually, and am definitely taking it to the Boogie. I love the primary color combo in the dress, and the beautiful flower print, plus the dress is super comfy (love stretchy side panels!!).
The necklace and brooch I'm wearing are new, I just got them from Luxulite. They go so well with the dress!
