Spring Break

While my mom and sister were nice enough to come visit last year in Mississippi (and claim they had a great time!), it's a lot more fun to have visitors when you live somewhere with lots to do.  Our house in Pensacola had a constant influx of visitors and I think (hope!) our Beaufort home will be the same.  We kicked off our visitor season with my mom and Syd coming down for Sydney's spring break.

Sunday was the only day we could be sure that Rob would be able to join us so we woke up early and headed to Savannah.  I made reservations at Lady and Son's, Paula Deen's restaurant, and it did not disappoint.  If the goal was to stuff them full of Southern cooking, this buffet was a necessary first stop!

We spent Monday exploring Beaufort.  We had lunch at my favorite spot, Low Country Produce, and then did some shopping on Bay Street.  Sweet tea floats (with homemade peach sorbet!) from Scout were an afternoon necessity, of course.  Later that night, we met Rob downtown for wood-fire pizzas at Panini's on the Bay.

We completed lucked out in terms of weather for the entire week.  Temperatures were in the mid to high 70s and it was sunny almost every day.  While I am spoiled living down here, I knew that they would definitely want t get some sun while in South Carolina.  We spent Tuesday at the beach at Hunting Island and Thursday at the beach in Hilton Head.  Totally different beaches but both great days.

On Wednesday, we took a quick trip to Charleston.  Our day started by meeting Rob's mom at Hominy grill for a table filled with "Charleston Nastys".  We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around the Battery and on King Street.  Of course, both Callie's Hot Little Biscuits AND Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream were necessary treats!

The rest of the trip was low key and spent by the pool, roasting s'mores in the neighborhood, buying large amounts of moonshine for them to take home or eating a ridiculous amount of Bruster's ice cream!  It was so nice to have them in town for the week and to show them some of our favorite spots!


  1. Awe, looks like y'all had fun! We're looking forward to exploring beaufort one weekend. I live near Savannah so we're not too far apart. I was listening to the news a couple weeks ago when they were talking about the farmers market in Beaufort. I told my boyfriend we have to go check it out! :) I love when family and friends come to town. It's so much fun to take them around downtown Savannah and show them all the hidden gems you love.

  2. Looks like a great time! Charleston and Savannah are such great cities :)

  3. That just reminded me how much I love Beaufort, Charleston, and Savannah! Must get back over that way soon! Looks like ya'll had a great time!
