Back from Our Little Jaunt

to one of my favorite destinations in the whole U S of A -- Charleston, SC.

VC loves the beach. As soon as he saw the ocean on the horizon, he said, "My stomach did a little hop when it saw the ocean."


When he wasn't testing out his new skimboard, he was floating around on an inner tube (despite the 60 degree water temp). I played the role of Landlubber.

***********warning: hot-n-sexy beach pic to follow**************











as you can see, I put the "white" in "white" and sure- most of the chicks were wearing tiny string bikinis, but why would you want to do that when you have your LL Bean thermal zip up, denim capris and old lady sun hat? I was fairly easy to spot amongst the sea of scantily clad babes, which was my goal ;-)

I won't bore you with our downtown architecture and touristy pics, other than this one that was taken at The Battery because cannon balls are cool :D

Every trip to Charleston, we make a point of dining one night at our favorite Pizzeria: Andolini's. The 19" pizzas are huge and the boys look forward to it, as well as our yearly pizza slice pic:

To give you an idea of the scale, as well as the "ambiance":

As you can see, I was wearing my "beach attire."

What about you? Do anything special over the holiday weekend?

That looksso fun! Sadly, when we went to California, we didn't go to the beach. :(

Lisa Paul said...

Loooooovvvvve Charleston. But shouldn't there be a big can of Utz Cheeseballs in one of those pictures?

I am *so* envious - you're in summer gear and there are people in the ocean, yet as far as I know the Gulf Stream doesn't go that far up the coast. It is *freezing* here and the sea temp (we are "washed by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream" - HAH!!) is a chilly 54 degrees! Oh that's it. I'm emigrating!

awesome pictures, looks like fun!

nope, nothing special this weekend.

blueviolet said...

I love Charleston! Went there for the first time a couple years ago...so charming!

You're a tiny little thing and really COULD get away with wearing a bikini.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Looks like a fun trip. And damn girl you have great legs.

alessandra said...

Well, you made me a bit envious of your trip, of your hot body, huge pizza and of course cannonballs ;)

Tater Tot Mom said...

Looks like an awesome trip! We have burritos as big as your head here but I've never seen a pizza as big as your car! That thing was huge! LOL

Robin said...

OMG..that pizza is HUGE...you look pretty in your beach attire...see you're one of the gals that can look gorgeous in anything...looked like so much fun..Im jealous of your warm beach weather...we actually had sun on Sunday, and ate drank and laughed all day...BBQ style..!

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

I would have loved to sack out on a beach, even if it weren't overly hot. Instead, we watched the kids hunt for bunny droppings of the chocolate variety, and ate ourselves stupid. Same as last year, and every year before that as long as I can remember (and have had kids)

Glad you had a fun weekend!

Randi Troxell said...

Aunt Juicebox said...

Awesome! I wanted to go to St. Augustine this summer, but we're putting it off til Thanksgiving cuz I need a car. I love the beach too, and I'd really like to live somewhere close enough to see it every day.

25BAR said...

I love the beach too. I always say - why go to the mountain when you can go to the beach?

McVal said...

Looks like you had a blast! I would love to live so close to a beach...

Michelle Pixie said...

I am so jealous of your little getaway and the next time you go anywhere you must take me with you!! ;-) It looks grand!

buffalodick said...

Tomorrow, I make a pizza using my stone, and my pizza peel..you may be interested!

Cindy said...

This holiday I ate a lot of chocoloate and waited for my car that was being shipped by Auto Shipping Network. My car was right on time, so I got to drive it to the beach afterwards.

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

How'd you got the last pic. Did you make your hubby hang off the overhead light fixture? Cool...

Mommyof2girlz said...

Great pictures and love the beach wear..it's very San Diego too :) That pizza looks delish..so jealous!

Lisa said...

We didn't do anything special. Look like yall had fun. I would blind people at the beach if I put a bikini on....like I'm gonna wear one anyway!

Feeling Fit With Dana said...

I love the beach. So jealous! We went to the lake, but spent the time cleaning up the house and mowing the yard. Oh well, it was nice to get away!

Kristin said...

Dude, I am so the covered up chick at the beach now. No shame in that. That pizza looks amaaaaaaaazing!

~Kristen~ said...

Fun fun fun!!! I would love to visit Charleston SC sometime! All of our trips to SC are always to Myrtle Beach so my husband the golf fanatic can indulge his obsession! lolol

I swear in that first pic of you and VC if I didn't know you were Mom and son I would swear that is some cute young high school couple!!! You're both adorable!!!

Laura said...

How fun, your family is so cute!! Glad you had fun and I happen to like your beach attire. (I also put the white in white!) :) Now I want some pizza, yum!

SonyaAnn said...

Thank you for sharing! Your family is adorable!

Amanda said...

This looks like the perfect way to spend a day!! I LOVE your hot and sexy beach attire. Mine is the same only in XXL sizes. ;)

I love Charleston, SC. My friend and I were just talking about going there in December. I was returning from Disney this weekend.

PS I saw some cool belly-dancing gear in Epcot and was thinking of you.

Big Mama Cass said...

You have that pretty white skin though. Mine is transparent. And creepy. LOL Looks like you had a lot of fun and now I so want pizza!!!!!!

JoeyRes said...

That's quite an outfit for the beach! I'm glad you warned us in advance.

Yankee Girl said...

Looks like it was a great trip! I love the hot beach photo. It is exactly the hot beach photo I would have taken.

Like VC, my stomach always does a little flop when I see the ocean too!
