Charleston via Instagram

Friday, 4:30...hit the road from home to my next favorite city

Met my travel buddy, Margaret, at the hotel...after our dinner we stopped in for a beer at Henry's 

Woke up bright and early Saturday morning & made it downtown in time for brunch at Eli's Table

I ordered two entrees...don't judge. #1: Sweet Potato Pancakes with Candied Pecan Butter #2 Cheese Grits, Bacon & Egg Biscuit

Spent the afternoon shopping at the Market

This was my purchase. Tell me its not the most perfect piece of folk art you ever did see. Kind of hard to see here, but its a block of wood distressed in red with the wording painted on pieces of hammered tin. Its now hanging in my bathroom! (lyrics from Danny's Song- Kenny Loggins)

4:00- stopped in the Lululemon store on King Street to purchase some new yoga pants....then off to "practice" my moves. 

Post-yoga happy hour and appetizers on King Street. 

Cleaned up for the night and back downtown at Vendue Rooftop Bar

Second stop... Squeeze: Charleston's Tightest Bar. And that it was!

Sunday morning brunch: Hominy Grill, featured on Man vs. Food for "The Big Nasty" consisting of a biscuit piled high with deliciously spicy gravy and pan friend chicken. Also the place where a complete stranger asked if I would like to try a bite of his meal. I took him up on it. We became friends. 

Waiting for our names to be called....it was the obviously place to be. We waited for 30 min for brunch.

Love the ambiance here (Hominy Grill)

A walk up window outside where we ordered mimosas for the wait (can you see it on the far left?)

Walking along The Battery

Do people get married here often? Because I would. (just once...to clarify)

Rainbow Row

Beautiful day & perfect weekend. 
The End.
