Charleston, South Carolina ... prepare yo-self!

Does everyone know my bestie Beth?  If not, you should know that her and I are homies, but she lives in Greenville, SC.  This geographical distance makes hanging out on the weekends and having weekly happy hours fairly difficult.  Instead, we plan weekend vacations and for some time now, we have been tossing around different city ideas for our next destination.  Since she came to Dallas last August and we met up in New Orleans in October, it was my turn to venture to her neck of the woods on the east coast.  

After much debate, we finally decided on the location for our next shenanigan filled weekend.  Drum roll please ...

Charleston, South Carolina: put on your party panties! 



These two ladies are coming to meet your acquaintance in June.


Considering I was rolled home in a wheelchair the last time we vacationed together, this meet up should not disappoint.  Everyone who I've told I'm going to Charleston tells me the city is amazing and is one of their favorites. I hope y'all are right.    

Since Beth hails from South Carolina and she's been to "chuckteezy" a lot, she will serve as my tour guide.  However, if any of you locals have any suggestions for a first timer, let a girl know.  9 weeks and counting ...

TGIT.

  1. That's exciting! Charleston is such a beautiful place and perfect for a weekend getaway. My sister went to college there 14 years ago and never came back... I don't blame her though! Gives me a good excuse to go down there!

  29. I love Charleston!! If you get a chance to get down to Folly Beach (only about a 20 minute drive from the city), stop by Taco Boy for amazing food & an awesome atmosphere!

    The shenanigans will be plentiful, I'm sure!

    Have a great weekend!
