Last weekend, Trevor and I took a day trip to Charleston, SC. How lucky are we that we can get there in about two hours?! My mom had watched the boys on Friday while I went to work and kept them for us the entire weekend, which was amazing. We had a great time just walking around and being adults (you know, when you can actually converse with one another without VeggieTales playing in the background?). I think we were most excited just to eat really good food… which of course, we did.
Our first stop of the day was at “Poogan’s Porch” for brunch. I got a super healthy, zero-calorie breakfast of chicken and waffles with a blueberry syrup. Good thing the blueberries counteracted ALL the grams of fat in the rest of the plate. Yay for superior health!
Then, we paused for a photo op outside of The Mills House where we had our wedding reception. It’s our happy place. Even though Trevor looks a little stressed. He’s probably remembering how much our brunch cost. Ouch.
Then we did some walking. It was super hot and humid, with rain clouds hovering, but we were just so thankful that the bad weather held off that we didn’t mind too much. We walked through the market and looked at all the cool stuff the vendors were selling.
Trevor was thrilled to find Christmas in August. He’s pretty much Buddy the Elf times 25. He tells me at least weekly how many days we have left until Christmas and runs through his decor plans for our Christmas village. No, really. I love that about him.
After we decided we had enough of walking and sweating around downtown Charleston, we drove to Mount Pleasant to go antiquing. Yes, my husband is the most amazing. We found such cool stuff, even though we didn’t buy anything this time. I really thought about buying this for my brother- it’s an old hood ornament for doctors’ cars- how awesome is that?! Reminded me of “Call the Midwife.”
For dinner, we drove over to Isle of Palms and ate at The Boathouse. While we waited for an eternity for our reservations, we got to watch dolphins swimming in the marsh. That little triangular dot is a dolphin. You’ll just have to trust me.More food pictures, because I’m me, and I’m fond of food.
Then, we went home!
The end. Have you ever been to Charleston? What’s your favorite thing to do there? Or, if we’re kindred spirits, your favorite place to eat?
