A Get-A-Way!

Karlton and I were able to sneak away for some much needed ALONE time to Charleston this weekend. My parents kept all 5 kids for us so we could go. We only went for 1 night but it was soooooooo nice!

We got there around 10:30 on Saturday morning and did a little shopping ( at the old market) and we stopped by the candy store and bought us a warm Praline... yummy!

We had planned on going to our favorite French restaurant but they closed down......bummer! So we went to our other favorite Restaurant 82 Queens. I was not at all disappointed to go there! ;0)

Then we had some time to kill until we were able to check in to our Inn. We used to stay here all the time until the girls came home. So, it has been about 5 yrs. since we have been to the Meeting St. Inn. We Love this place. I highly recommend it! They have a delicious Wine and Cheese at 5:30 and a wonderful breakfast too!

Our room.... I love these high rice beds..... the kind you have to have the stairs for or just a really good run and jump to get up on! lol.... We have a bed like this but it is not this tall.... I told Karlton he will have to work on making our bed a little taller, he agreed.

The rest of the pictures are just of us walking around the historic city and doing some more shopping on Kings Street.

Karlton and I were able to go to a movie that night. We saw  "Just Go With It" and it was hilarious! The next morning I woke up and went for a run...I thought I would only do about 3.5 miles but ended up loving the run so much I ran my most so far.... 6.3 miles! I am ready for my 10K now ;0) I ran down to the Battery and up along the sea wall to the water park and back to the hotel and went again because it was so Beautiful! We had wonderful weather, it even got really warm on Sat! We could not have asked for a better trip!

I will be posting more pictures over the next few days....I just wanted to savor them....
