Spring Break Recap

Last week was our spring break. It really came at a perfect time! I was getting so stressed out with work, i needed the break!

We ended up staying in town on Monday for the big National Championship game Monday night. I'm so glad we decided to stay so we could be in Lexington for everything!


We watching the game at our favorite spot, Tin Roof!

With about 1,000 of our closest friends! Haha

It was fun to be down there. But I admit, once the beer was thrown in the air and the crowd was rushing the street... I was ready to leave!

Tuesday morning we woke up early to head to Charleston. Luckily, Ben drove 2/3 of the way. So lucky to have him :) 

We made it to Charleston by 4pm and got ready for dinner on the beach! It was a great night!

Wednesday, we went to the beach for a little bit and then the pool. I put sunscreen on, and I still got fried!!! Luckily, I had 50 spf on my face and it got the perfect little glow to it! Haha

Wednesday night we went to a local favorite, Reds Ice House. It's on Shem Creek, so you usually see lots of dolphins!!

 It was a great night of drinking local mixed drinks, and eating some southern fried seafood! I definitely did not eat healthy on this trip! 

Thursday we woke up early and drove about an hour to the Firefly distillery. We were hoping for a tour of the distillery, but apparently they don't do those. So we opted for the taste testing instead! 

We got to try 6 different Firefly flavors. Then of course, they tell you how you can only buy certain bottles at the distillery, so we were suckered in. 

It was beautiful out there!

After we went to King Street for lunch and a little shopping.

We went to Poogan's Porch for lunch. It was so good! I ordered the Shrimp n Grits and they were amazing!

After some shopping, we came home and took a nap before heading out to the Riverdogs Baseball game for opening night. 

The game ended up getting rained out after one inning, but that didn't stop us from eating their famous hot dogs! 

Ben ordered the Homewrecker, which was on Man vs. Food a few seasons ago. It was ridiculous!

Friday was another shopping day. We went out to the outlets for some spring essentials. I would die if the outlets were 20 minutes from my house! Ben and I went to a little Japenese restaurant that's tucked away. They have the best lunch specials! I got hibachi chicken and Ben got 3 rolls of sushi. 

Which were all amazing by the way! 

We did a little more shopping at Towne Center near my mom's house and then just relaxed until our next meal. We went to another local favorite, Crave, for dinner. It's by far, Ben and I's favorite restaurant in Charleston!! 

Then, it was Saturday, our last full day in Charleston. And we were complete vacation bums and hung by the pool ALL DAY! It was great!

And a beautiful day! We grilled out by the pool for dinner. Another amazing meal and Ben and my mom made it all! 

You really can't go wrong with eating in Charleston!!! Whether you're going out to eat, or picking something up at the Piggly Wiggly to cook. They have amazing choices!

These two boys were wiped out by Sunday!!

Loving on his hippo. So so sweet!

Now that we're back home, I have to get myself back on track with healthy eating! I made fresh salads for my lunches this week. 

Thanks to my sister's inspiration. (Check out her new blog here!)

It's nice getting back to routines and schedules. But it's really nice knowing I only have 29 more school days left until summer ;) 

Oh, and this little cutie showed up in the fridge. Thanks, Ben for the delicious surprise! Just what I needed after all these healthy lunches, haha!


  1. Looks like you guys had a great time in CHS! All of the food looks ah-mazing! I'm glad my salad post inspired you to get back on track! What is the bunny treat made out of?

  2. Ha, we had very similar weeks! My boyfriend and I went up to Lexington for the basketball games too. We watched the Louisville game at Tin Roof on Saturday. Absolute madness. For the Championship game we hit up Campus Pub. Such a fun weekend!
