Saturday was my birthday! I've had a lot of fun celebrating this week, and I've been lucky enough to celebrate with some fantastic people. For those of you who haven't seen, Charleston (and much of SC) is still underwater after a few days of crazy storms. Weirdly enough, they had nothing to do with Hurricane Joaquin, but they still brought 18+ inches of rain to the Lowcountry. As you can guess by the name, we live in a low-lying area, many places below sea level, so you can imagine the flooding that's ensued. Please pray for the people most affected and their homes!
Now back to the good things. Celebrating began early last week, and I finally had a chance to try the new Mexican place downtown, Minero with my boss. The queso fundido was amazing and the burrito was literally 5 pounds. Wednesday night, Erika and I had a family date night to Holy City Brewing for the opening night of their pumpkin beer! I was really impressed by their biscuits & honey and pineapple pepper beers, too. On Friday, I had a little birthday party at DeSano with my amazing friends! Seriously, they're the best... one of them took this cute video while I blew out my candles :) Stops at HoM, Prohibition, and Callie's were necessary, too.
Like I already said, much of the rest of the weekend was spent indoors with an exception for hibachi down the road on Saturday night. We finished our 2000 piece puzzle from the World of Coke trip in Atlanta for our anniversary, too. It was a great weekend!
