Real Housewives (visit Charleston)


My girlfriends and I joke about being the real housewives of Atlanta.  I have no idea where Bravo found their Atlanta cast but it's not true. I promise.  Anyhow....

We were able to pack a lot in during our short weekend trip but without overwhelming you with photos, here's a small peak into our trip. 

Lots of shopping....


We all loved this bright pink accessories shop called, So Good Jewelry, on King Street.  I had a hard time narrowing down my choice but in the end,  I couldn't go home without this pretty little fascinator.


The other spot we spent some time (and money) in was Willy Jay's.   They had so many adorable dresses that were sorted by color.  We had fun picking out dresses for each other  and trying them on for a little impromptu fashion show. 





We also had a lot of really good food.  Our weekend started with dinner at The Library at The Vendue Inn.  I got my shrimp and grits fix and later we enjoyed cocktails and stunning views on the rooftop bar.


The next night we enjoyed more southern fare at Hyman's Seafood which was a great casual place to kick back and relax a bit.


But I think my favorite spot was Husk, which we were lucky enough to squeeze in for brunch right before heading back to Atlanta.  Bon Appetit voted them best new restaurant for 2011 and their menu really shows!  I highly recommend it.


I couldn't resist a few food shots since we were dining al fresco.


Shrimp and Grits

Biscuits and Gravy


Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll with Maple Frosting
And finally, we spent most of Saturday afternoon admiring the gorgeous architecture and hidden gardens of Charleston.  I couldn't get enough of it.




















I couldn't resist this photo op.  They're everywhere in Charleston!!  As if you needed another reason to visit this sweet, southern city.
