Bachelorette Weekend: Part 2
Last Saturday morning (during Jennifer’s Bachelorette Weekend), those of us that went to bed early the night before were ready to get out and explore Charleston…after eating breakfast courtesy of the Embassy Suites – I do love eating breakfast! It looked like it might rain, so we dressed appropriately and brought umbrellas. I was so prepared – I even went to Target to buy one of those cute bubble umbrellas so that if it did rain, I could get some cute shots of the bride holding a cute umbrella.

Right beside our hotel, was a small market with produce, crafts and pony rides. We stood for a moment, but wanted to check out the bigger market (ya know, on Market Street). On our walk down, we spotted BLONDE Jesus. I told the girls to stop for a minute…no one would believe me if I just said I saw a blonde Jesus, I needed proof!

We really wanted to have lunch at Jestine’s Kitchen. We’d heard that if you didn’t want to wait in line for hours (wrapped around the building), that you really needed to get there as close to opening as possible. They opened at 11 am…we were there at 11:15. All of the seats were immediately filled so we were the first in line. I think we waited 30-45 minutes and it was so worth it! But seriously, there’s no wait list…so, if you want to eat at Jestine’s, get there early or be prepared to wait.

Next up…PRALINES! Walking down Market Street, you are literally overcome by the smell of sweet praline goodness. I have incredibly strong will power, so I briefly stepped inside to grab a sample. It was pretty yummy but I’m not a huge nut fan. Some of the other girls bought a bag to take home with them…I’m kinda curious how many of them actually made it all the way home with their bag of pralines.

We walked all over Charleston…tons of shopping! Like I mentioned the other day, I was busy taking pictures so I wouldn’t be so tempted to spend money. And it really was tempting – so many cute warm weather frocks (my word for cute clothes). Some of the other girls were tempted by Charleston Cooks. If you like cooking/baking, etc, then you will love this store. Me…I just like to eat. I took one walk around and decided to wait outside. Jennifer joined me. Don’t ya love the look on her face looking up at me?

    Really great photos! I just love Charleston, and it looks like you had a wonderful trip there. I have only had the tourist experience, but never any insider tips. I will have to keep these locations in mind for our next trip there!

    Blonde Jesus dyed for our sins. (I’m sorry, I couldn’t help it–have a great Easter weekend!)

    Oh gosh, I’ve missed so much this week. I feel so out of it! This looks like so much fun!! Nothin’ like walking around chit-chatting with the gal pals! And congrats to your friend that’s getting hitched soon! :)

    Love these. Glad you had such a good time. I work at a nut/ candy store and we sell pecan prailines they are so good.

    And thanks for your positive feed back on shoot and edit wow post.

    I am loving how much I am learning and growing with editing.

    What a wonderful day!!!! Love your photos / journaling of it!

    That chocolate looks so good! I’ve been a chocoholic lately lol. Looks like a fun weekend.

    Sounds like a really fun trip! I would love to go there someday. I’ve never really toured the real South. :) Your friend looks like Keri Russell. I’m sure I’m not the first person to say so. :)

    Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. I have never seen the blonde Jesus, pretty funny! You know I have lived here for like 15 years and I have never once eaten at Justine’s, we always go to Hominy Grill instead. However I do love the Saturday market that they have in Marion Square, you can find some cool stuff sometimes and get great fresh produce!

    Hi!
    You all look so happy on your meandering around town. Have a great day!

    Sounds like a great time. Lovely blog.

    Looks like a blast of a weekend! You are capturing wonderful memories with such cool pictures :)

    That interpretation of Jesus is too much. What a find! :) And, now I want some really good chocolate. YUM!

    fun times!

    I have never seen a blonde Jesus before! WOW!! HAha
    YUM…pralines :) What an awesome trip!

    I would have bought up the whole store worth of pralines…mmmm. I think I need to hang with you since you obviously know how to have fun wherever you go!

    Lovin all your shots. Good job with the picture taking to distract from the shopping :D And yeah, my bag of nuts wouldn’t have made it 10 minutes. Mmmm :D
    ZERO willpower here!

    I must say that Ive never seen a blonde Jesus! Lol! So good for you for getting proof:) and being the photographer everywhere is a really good distraction from spending money or even eating! Lol

    mmm pralines – your posts are giving me cravings!!

    Wonderful way to start a day!

    Adorable! Those pralines would have never made it home with me – out of the parking lot maybe, but I wouldn’t promise more than that.

    You really captured some great moments in your weekend. Although, you should have handed your camera off more often so you could be in some of the photos too!

    Really great photos!! Have a great weekend!

    Okay, so I think I’ve got part of my weekend in Charleston next month planned. Jestines, pralines, and blonde Jesus. Sounds like a winner to ME!!!! ;)

    That looks like so much fun! You’re right – I don’t think I could have pictured the blonde Jesus until I scrolled down. It’s definitely different! Anyway, great shots of a fun day!

    Okay, the blond Jesus is hilarious! Looks like you had such a fun time. Fantastic shots, as usual. :)

    Looks like you had a great time! Beautiful shots. I really, really love the portraits you took – so awesome.

    Thanks for participating in Fabulous Friday!
