But then, already into July, L and I realized that we were going to be almost overlapping on business trips in Charleston...I could stay a couple of days and she could arrive a few days early! So...the emails started flying, and we discovered that CC would be in town (between European jaunts, might I add), and would be able to meet us!
So, albeit a bit last minute and abbreviated, girls weekend would continue in 2012!
We started the weekend Saturday afternoon with a couple of hours on Foley Beach before heading to downtown Charleston. That evening, we started our tour of downtown at the Market Pavilion Rooftop Bar. CC did an expert job stalking the tables along the edge, and we ended up with a perfect view. Our cute clutches were too small for a phone and a camera, so iPhone photos is what we've got :)
After brunch, we did what most girls do during girls weekends - shopping! We walked all around King Street, in and out of our favorite stores and beautiful boutiques. And of course, we managed to track down a Mexican restaurant for margaritas, chips, cheese dip, and huge beers - $4 happy hour special :)

Then we did a little sight seeing down around the water and all of the gorgeous Charleston homes.
That evening, we headed out to another great dinner at Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar...but not before a little photo shoot around the fountains!
CC grabbed some gelato and we headed up to another upstairs bar, The Rooftop Bar above The Venue Inn. Not as swanky as the first one, especially on a Sunday night, but still a lovely evening to be outside.
A day and a half wasn't nearly enough time, but Monday morning I headed to the airport super early for a flight to San Antonio and another business trip. A day and a half was certainly better than nothing, and it's always so great to see these girls!
Can we do it again sooner rather than later?! See you in October!
