The PERFECT Charleston Getaway!

While in Columbia for two weeks, I had a weekend off where I could do whatever I wanted. Sometimes, a certain property will need help with events that happen on the weekends… festivals, football games, etc. However, this weekend I was told I could do WHATEVER I wanted! Sooo… I drove for almost two hours to a city I called home in the summer of ’08! CHARLESTON!

I went down to see a few of my friends that live in Charleston and we did absolutely everything I wanted to do in Charleston. When I first arrived, my sweet friend Lynlea was waiting for me with a bottle of red wine that was only THREE dollars. It’s called Lucky Duck and it’s such a cute bottle… I’ve tasted better wine but you can’t beat $3 for a bottle. We drank a glass and then we poured the rest into small grape juice bottles so that we could take our $3 wine to the movies (a coke costs like $5 so this is a brilliant plan).

We saw Life As We Know It and this is a movie that I would normally make fun of but secretly love. However, in my drunken stupor, I was crying, LOL’ing, clapping, and loving life during this movie. Lynlea and Danielle both thought the movie was OKAY and I adored it?? No offense but Danielle LOVES Disney movies. Yeah, I must have just been drunk and emotional because at the time, I thought this was the cutest movie ever. Soooo that’s my movie review: See it when you’re drunk.

We went back to Lynlea and Tori’s house and STEGER came over! Right away we started playing my new favorite game that I learned from Cougar Town. It’s called “Describe two movies as if they were one to create one movie title” – that’s the official title. For example, an orange cat who goes to a baseball field to reconnect with his dead father…. GARFIELD OF DREAMS. Get it? Yeah, it took Steg a while to get it too.
We kicked off Saturday by waking up and heading to the Farmer’s Market Downtown. It's so pretty in Charleston.. so pretty that I (yet again) got distracted and didn't take any pictures when we were walking around. This beauty to the right is the only picture I took. It's so random but funny because the guy that was working this booth kept pressuring us to rub the mint leaves and then smell our fingers. It felt weird to do that. But, after he yelled at us a couple of times, we caved.

After dinner/drinks at Red's, we went downtown to Lyn's favorite place. It's where she takes alllll of her amazing guests. I don't even think it has a name it's just the Cigar and Wine Shop. The rest of the night is history. I am so thankful to have amazing friends who will take me in while I'm traveling. Loved seeing everyone in Charleston and I can't wait to come back!

Disregard the weird, old dude.
