Charleston Bucket List

I'm en route to Charleston for my sister’s bachelorette weekend. Next up, Greece in 6 days (If my passport ever arrives, God willing)!! I’m so looking forward to a girly weekend full of gallons of sweet tea, non-existent in DC, w. or w. out Firefly, southern cuisine, shopping, cocktails, pampering and sun galore. Just for kicks I’ve put together a bucket list for this sweet city.
  • Try fried green tomatoes
  • Get my fill of hushpuppies…nom nom nom
  • Take a cheesy tourist pic in front of the pineapple fountain at Waterfront Park
  • Sip cocktails at the rooftop bar - Market Pavilion Hotel
  • Take a ride in a pedicab
  • Soak up some sun at Folly Beach
  • Find the best shrimp n’ grits around
  • Retail therapy at Affordables & Palm Avenue
  • Eat my way through the city by way of Macaroon Boutique, Magnolias, Fleet Landing, Hyman’s and Cupcake
  • Visit Magnolia Plantation
I leave you w. a picture of the cupcake toppers I made last minute to adorn the Funfetti cupcakes (my sister’s favorite) we’ll be enjoying.

 I'm not even going to talk about how sad I am that summer is almost over.  Unlike everyone else, I so CAN wait for fall to arrive.  I like my flip flops, barefeet, sundresses, crab feasts and tomato sandwiches far too much to welcome cool temps and turtlenecks. Have a great weekend!


  1. I hope you're having a blast!! Rooftop cocktails sound so heavenly right now!

  2. I hope you tried friend green tomatoes! Ah, talk about Heaven on Earth =)
