Weekend Recap

Raise your hand if you're as excited for Thanksgiving as me?!  This weekend was amazing, but I couldn't help and look forward to one of my favorite holidays coming up in three days.  Luckily, I had a lot to keep me busy...

Friday was my biggest event of the year at work.  We hosted our Golf and Gala out at Kiawah, and it was the perfect 70 degree sunny day!  Both portions of the event were fantastic, there was delicious Lowcountry food, and we raised a lot of money for our kids!
In return for working at the event, my organization paid for Mike and me to spend the weekend at The Sanctuary Hotel out on Kiawah.  It was amazing, just like last year.  I even had a chance to finally meet Chesson at an awesome new wine bar on Kiawah; you're given a card and can dispense any of 48 types of wine by the glass at self-serve machines!
On the way home yesterday, we took my parents and a family friend to our favorite place, the Charleston Tea Plantation!  They loved the tours and we finished our last little bit of Christmas shopping with all of the makings of a Charleston tea basket for Mike's grandma!
Our afternoon was spent shopping for Thanksgiving dishes, watching my Panthers go 10-0 (!!!), and finally spending way too much money at Sephora thanks to winning Pamela's giveaway.  Don't worry, I plan on sharing the love with y'all after Thanksgiving weekend - more info soon ;)

I want to try that wine bar! That's so fun that you got to spend the weekend at The Sanctuary.. we went there once for a little concert and it was beautiful.

I MIGHT be there tonight but I'm still not sure with all our family in town. I suck at plans.

Loved meeting you this weekend! & I need to know where you found all of those gators! We didn't see a single gator all weekend but I'm betting that's because it was mostly cloudy/cool while I was there... you had gorgeous weather on Friday!

What a gorgeous view from the porch :)

I live a few hours north of Charleston and the tea plantation is one of my favorite places! I take everyone who visits me there if we go to Charleston :) Luckily stores up here sell their tea or I'd have to make monthly trips down there! Not that it would be the worst thing in the world to have to do! :)
