St. Patty’s Day in Charleston.

Weekend Recap

My roommate (Leah), her boyfriend (Zack), and I went to Charleston this past weekend to visit a college friend of ours (Amanda, also known as Afed). And to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2012! We had so much fun!

Folly Beach Pier.

Saturday morning we woke up and headed straight to Folly Beach, where we immediately got in the St. Patty’s Day spirit seeing all the green attire. We were all starving so we literally waited oustide Taco Boy until they opened. Started off the morning right with a margarita followed by two of the most delicious tacos I’ve ever had! I had a grilled Mahi-Mahi taco and their Obrero, which was black bean and spicy amazingness.

this one actually had a little pineapple in it!

We hung out at the beach all day before heading back to Amanda’s and shower. After a small freak out that we had lost Afed’s phone (thankfully, we did not!), we drove to downtown Charleston to meet Leah and Zack for dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. Time got away from us, and it was almost 9:30 before we sat down to order. We were ravenous! We ordered Seafood Hush Pups and the Shrimp Shack Mac and Cheese to start, and I got the Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi. There was no talking at our table for a good 5 min. while we scarfed it down. Delicious!

Midway through. No evidence of any mashed potatoes.

Then we sampled a bit of Miami before meeting up with some of Zach’s friends at a bar downtown. Good end to a great day!

I am far too in love with this bottle!

Sunday morning, I woke up and headed to the beach with Cedar while everyone else was still asleep. Gosh, I wish I could sleep past 8:00 a.m.! But this was worth it.

Day in ATL

Friday was my best friend in the entire world’s last day of work, so I went to Atlanta to celebrate with her! Lacey and I have been best friends since 9th grade and roomed together all 4 years of college. I don’t see her nearly as often as I would like, but that is about to change because we are headed to Thailand!!! Lacey is flying out on Monday, but I won’t be leaving until the beginning of April. What in the world is she going to do for a month in Thailand by herself? I’m trying to encourage her to start a blog so I can find out. I think I’m in the “obsessed with blogging” stage.

We spent Friday night at some friends’ house catching up and playing Just Dance. I had never seen this game actually played before. It was hilarious! Saturday morning we got up bright and early to go to Lacey’s hair appointment at James Madison Salon before getting a much needed pedicure at Eminence Salon. It was the largest nail salon I’ve ever seen!

After that, we wandered over to Nordstrom Rack, where I fell in love with some Sam Edelman shoes that I cannot afford.

Aren't they cute?!

Then off to World Market! I had never been here before and loved all the international foods and snacks. I left with some Thai Chili Pop Chips and some Coconut Rum Green Tea. They also had this fun tasting event for St. Patrick’s Day. The Guinness bread was sooo good!

How fun!

Today was slightly less exciting. It pretty much consisted of McDonalds, grocery shopping, and a whole lot of algebra review. Gotta get ready for that certification test!
