Exploring Charleston #1

We have been living in Charleston for a little over a year now but have not even begun to really explore the city.  There are so many places I want to visit and restaurants I want to try.  My mom was in town this weekend so we did a little walking around and tried two places on my to-go list.

 We happened upon the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist while walking around.  My kids said it was 'creepy'. I thought it was very interesting and the stained glass was pretty amazing.
 I always see some of my fav Charleston area bloggers posting pics on Insta from Kitchen 208 on King St.  Finally got to try it.  There was a loong wait for food but it was pretty good. I had the Turkey Shoot.

We then headed up King Street to try Christophe Chocolatier which located off King on Society.  We tried the Opera Cake:
 and several macaron.  The one below is coconut.  It was delish.
 What are your favorite restaurants in Charleston?!  Anyone know of any good Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants here??

Sunday Social

1. How much time do you spend on Social Media a day?…be honest

Maybe an hour a day?  I loooove Instagram so I'll scroll through that a few times a day when I'm waiting in the school pick-up line.  I also spend a little bit of time tweeting giveaways because you can't win if you don't enter! :)

2. How long were you reading blogs before you started a blog?

Not very long. My friend Tasha introduced me to a couple of blogs and then asked if I wanted to start one with her.  Thus this blog was originally called Pink and Green Moms.  Tasha moved on to other websites and projects and I have sort of kept this one up.

3. What is your favorite kind of cupcake?
I love the Miss Princess cupcakes at Gigi's....I pretty much love all cupcakes though.

4. Do you eat fast food? If so, what is your favorite?
Heck yes, I love some fast food. Especially the #1 at Wendy's.
 
5. What is the most random thing someone would find in your purse?
Outlet plug covers.
They've been in there since we moved to our house several months ago. I ran around on the last day in our apartment and took them all out and just threw them in my purse.

6. What is the weirdest TV show you watch?
I don't think I watch any "weird" shows but I have been accused of being an old lady because for years I have watched:
 every Monday-Friday. Can't miss Pat, Vanna and Alex!

This Weeks Questions:
1. What is your favorite outfit pin?

I love this outfit Olivia Palermo is wearing.  It is a perfect everyday outfit! To follow my Olivia board, click here!


2. What is your favorite food pin?
This Pina Colada dip from ValsoCal is the shiiiiizzznit.  Find it here!

3. What is your favorite wedding pin?

I've never pinned anything for a wedding...mainly because, I got married before Pinterest was cool and I never had a fancy wedding. My husband was in the military so we did a quick ceremony at the court house!

4.  What is your favorite DIY/craft pin?
Someday I will do this to my bathroom...and maybe my kitchen! It looks like such an easy and inexpensive project! Find the pin here!

5. What is your favorite quote/verse/lyric pin?


 This always cracks me up because my Field Training Officer always used to say, "Don't look at me in that tone of voice" whenever I'd give him one of my infamous looks.


6. Share one more random pin you love.

I recently pinned this Sloane Ranger crossbody...  Isn't it the cutest?!

Sunday Social

I'm linking up for my first ever Sunday Social! You should too- here! 




1. Favorite breakfast food:  I'm not a big breakfast person but I can always go for some Dunkin' Donuts...especially a Boston Creme or Toasted Coconut donut!
2. Best way to spend a free day: I'm a mom so my only real free time is when the kids are at school or asleep.  I love to walk around Target when they're in school or catch up on my favorite not-safe-for-kids shows like Real Housewives!

3. Airline ticket to anywhere in the world….where would you go and why?  I have always wanted to go to Bora Bora and stay in one of those crazy expensive, over the water hotels because I love the clear water and am a total beach bum!

4. You can only leave the house with one thing…what is it?  My phone, of course!


5. How do you take your coffee?  I like espresso...as in a mocha from Starbucks :)


Hope y'all are having an amazing weekend!

It's Not About The Nail


I can't remember if I saw this on another blog or on Facebook, but this is pretty funny. I made my husband watch it and now whenever I'm trying to tell him something and he's not listening I just say,"It's not about the nail!!!!" :)

Take thee to Kohl's...

I couldn't find it online but they had plenty at my local store...also in light blue and pink.  The brand is Elle...currently on sale for $19.99 but with today's 15% off coupon it was $18.35 after tax. My kind of deal!
I'm wearing it in XS.
