Charleston and an impromtu babymoon :)

Blake's officially on the interview trail. This week I see him Tuesday night for a couple hours, then he's off Wednesday morning! When he started applying I was asked to pick a city here and there where I could potentially go with him, and without taking a breath I chose Charleston. 
We didn't really label it a babymoon, but why the heck not :)

We flew in Thursday evening, and got dinner with the residents at Social Wine Bar on East Bay street. Everyone was unbelievably nice, and the heavy appetizers were serioulsy delicious.
Friday, after Blake's interview, we hit the town like some serious tourists. First, a walk down the Battery (that's what you call it when you're super cool and local).
The palms, the colorful homes and shops, the brick lined streets... everything was picture perfect. 
next... yeah, we totally did. We drove through the Festival of Lights at James Island park. It was 80 degrees, before Thanksgiving, and we were jammin' Feliz Navidad, and I have no regrets :)
These photos aren't in any real order, but we did drive out to one of the neighboring island's beach one evening. 
Sullivan's Island.
We stopped back by East Bay street for some Belgin gelato. Pre-dinner mind you. I love vacation.
We made late dinner reservations for the "voted most romatic restaurant" in Charleston for 14 years. It totally deserved the title. You enter through what felt like a secret hidden door, past ivy lined walls. The restaurant sat about 10 tables, candlelit. It was a perfectly romantic night.
Saturday morning. 
By recommendation, we ate brunch at Hominy Grill (pumpkin pancakes with cranberry butter - hello!), then drove out to the Angel Oak before heading back to the airport.
Sweet tea and my sweet man. :)
It was a short little babymoon, but I couldn't have asked for anything better. Charleston was truly adorable, and the perfect place to spend some last minute husband/wife time before our bundle of joy arrives!

  1. Looks like you had a ton of fun! I like the "babymoon" idea. Charleston looks like a cool place. Take care and we look forward to seeing you at Thanksgiving.
