Hi friends! I took the week off from regular posting, but I’m happy to be back today with a two week recap. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately!
1// Giving my parents the essential Greenville experience!
My mom and dad came down two weekends ago for a wedding here in town. On Saturday night we headed downtown Greenville for supper at a super quaint restaurant. I had a delicious crab cake and everyone loved the chocolate peanut butter cake we took home with us for dessert. Afterwards we toured Falls Park (that somehow my parents had never visited – it’s the basic Greenville tourism activity!) and they enjoyed the flowers and scenery. It was fun to show them around even though I about melted in the humidity. Also I wanted to steal my mom’s awesome sunglasses. She’s so chic.
2// Visiting with Paul’s family
Paul’s brother and sister in law were here visiting from up North. They have the cutest kids and we always enjoy seeing how much they’ve changed and grown since the last visit! Our niece loves for me to show her every item in my purse, so we did that and she got to try a little bit of Aunt Whitney’s lotion and lip gloss…and then she spent the next 20 minutes wrestling with her little brother and Uncle Paul Curtis. 🙂
3// Watching the Olympics!
As I mentioned before, I love the Olympics! It was so fun to be able to watch Michael Phelps’ final race live! I get so into it that I can’t sit on the couch – I either sit on the coffee table (closer to the TV) or stand right in front of the TV.
4// Eating ice cream…
Ice cream is the consolation prize for enduring an incredible steamy summer in the Carolinas. 🙂 At one point we had 5 cartons in the freezer. Yeah.
5// Re-planning vacation
We were planning a big road trip this summer, but our schedules have changed and now that’s not a possibility. I’m hoping to work in a few weekend trips that aren’t so far away.
So here’s my question for you: What is your favorite weekend getaway destination?
Have a wonderful weekend!
