Yesterday Ashley and I drove to Charleston just for the day. It was absolutely gorgeous. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and it wasn't too hot so it was a great day to shop and browse around the city. I think we just about walked our feet off!
When we got there, it was lunchtime, so we ate at a famous Charleston landmark called Jestine's Kitchen.
Jestine was a sweet black lady who died when she was 112 and who was known for her delicious home cooked southern food. Here is the lunch menu....
For an appetizer, we got fried green tomatoes. Then I got the fried catfish over grits with collard greens on the side and Ashley got a shrimp Po'Boy sandwich with fried okra. And as if that wasn't enough, we had blueberry/peach crisp for dessert!! Goodness...we NEEDED to walk all day to burn all that off! haha For dinner we ate at another famous restaurant called Magnolia's. They have also been in Southern Living magazine and other publications for being one of Charleston's best places to eat. It was delicious, too!
Charleston was in full bloom so after we did some shopping on King Street, we just walked all over the city looking at the beautiful homes and flowers everywhere. Spring is such a great time to go there!! Here are some of the things we saw....
I think this picture is the only time we sat down all day (other than to eat!)
Today I am back home and just doing things around the house and helping Steve in the yard. I can't get over the amount of pollen that is all over the place. I washed my car off today because it was COVERED in yellow dust and you could barely see out of the back window. Then I went to the grocery store. When I came out, my car was covered again!! It is crazy! We really need some rain.
Well, I can't believe it is already Wednesday!!! Spring Break is going by way too fast! :( I am going to try and soak in these last few days before it's back to work.
