Hello! We are officially Charleston residents (again). After closing, Brandon and I celebrated the only way we knew how…
…with gigantic chicken sandwiches, of course.
Boxcar Betty’s is a new(ish) restaurant in Charleston that has dominated the chicken sandwich. I got the Boxcar, which has spicy mayo, peach coleslaw, housemade pickles, and pimento cheese. Brandon got the Chicken & “Not So Waffle,” and I can promise you… I will get it next time.
The next day, we woke up after…oh, a good three hours of sleep and moved from Beaufort back to Charleston. Surprisingly, we fit most of our things in that one truck. Probably helps that I sold our living room and dining room furniture before we moved. #timetoshop
My mom came up on Friday to help unpack while Brandon worked. But naturally, we ended up shopping and getting mani/pedis instead. Oh, and thanks, Mom, for the mum and pumpkin!
We went to a gigantic furniture consignment shop in Mount Pleasant called Mount Pleasant Mall. It has over 25,000 square feet of antiques, new & pre-owned furniture, vintage items, etc.
My favorite booths are the ones where designers refurbish old furniture into practically new pieces. This booth had my heart. I love the two moorish mirrors. I seriously almost scooped them up and am kind of regretting not doing so now. But I have bigger things to think about now, like living room furniture, a dining room table/chairs, and a kitchen table. Gives me anxiety thinking about all the decisions that need to be made.
On Friday night, we celebrated the wedding of one of my very best friends. The weather couldn’t have been prettier and the bride couldn’t have been more stunning.
I am totally not a food photographer. In fact, this might look disgusting or it might look delicious. I haven’t decided yet. But we went to Triangle Char & Bar on Saturday to watch the Clemson game and Brandon got “The Nap.” Yes, that’s two bacon grilled cheeses sandwiched around a cheeseburger. There’s a first for everything. #ididnoteatthat
On Sunday, we unpacked some more and grabbed dinner with Brandon’s parents. It’s still too warm for me to hang up the white jeans. Sorry, Emily Post. I wore this ASOS blouse, these Citizens of Humanity jeans (50% off!), a Theodosia necklace and earrings, and booties from Target last year. I think the white jeans can totally move into fall when paired with darker pieces and booties.
By the way, our gray paint samples have been purchased! I will share our decision process with you on the blog this week.
