Weekend in Photos

Monday, October 20, 2014

This weekend flew by so fast, I really wish we had an extra day off today. After lots of sightseeing with our guests, way too much food, and some epic games of Cranium... this mama definitely needs a day of detoxing and a nap!

We had so much fun with my sister-in-law and her fiance visiting so many beautiful spots in Charleston that we hadn't seen before. We visited places where they filmed the Notebook and even got in the car of a completely random woman who wanted to take us on a tour of the city. Turns out she was a private tour guide in Charleston so we got a free 20 minute tour from a speed talking, sweet old lady before we asked her to drop us off at Rainbow Row.

We headed to the Calhoun Mansion first, which is where some of the scenes from the Notebook were filmed. The house is absolutely amazing and filled to the brim with antiques, ornate chandeliers, and gold finishes. We couldn't take photos inside but it was a great tour and I definitely recommend!


The weather was absolutely perfect so we headed to the Battery and Rainbow Row next for some photo ops.

Whoa belly! Rowan must have really enjoyed all the Southern food I was eating this weekend!
We ate at one of our favorites, Poogan's Porch for dinner and brunch over the course of the weekend. The guys just couldn't say no to the chicken and waffles. I had the pimento cheese ravioli and scallops for dinner... oh so delicious!

 
We also stopped by Boone Hall Plantation, which was definitely a must-see if you're in the area. The Avenue of the Oaks is so gorgeous! We toured the house (not that exciting of a tour, but still worth it since its included in your ticket price) and the plantation itself.





Of course we also hit up the Old Market and then King Street for some Jeni's Ice Cream. I'm pretty sure we all gained about 15 pounds over the weekend and we don't regret it one bit.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Don't forget to link up some Halloween festiveness tomorrow!
