Saturday, after I got off of work we went to Hanks. We sat at the bar and enjoyed some wine and apps.
My thrown together last minute outfit. Little cardigan from Forever 21 and long tank (w/ frilly sleeves) from Banana Republic
Next we went to Lana on Rutledge. This is my new favorite place. The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered an olive bowl to enjoy our meal with. I failed to take a photo of my Gnocchi and Matts Duck. Oh and did I mentioned the Gelato Sampler.
Now on to Sunday Funday. Our friend Joe Firstman was in town so we caught a bit of a show at Home Team BBQ. Afterwards we went over to Mark Bryan's (from Hootie and the Blowfish) downtown apt. We listened to Joe's new album and drank a couple frosty beverages.

In Matt's life before Kristen (B.K.) he was a College Baseball Coach. He spent his majority of coaching years at Mississippi State and yes one of these days I will give you a tour of his office. It's as if the college threw up in there.
After Kristen (A.K.) Matt sells packaging materials. (Glamorous) However, he is still involved with baseball in town. He does hitting and pitching lessons almost daily and he is also helping out the local High School Varsity team. He sometimes helps the kids get signed to Colleges. When I go to the games, the parents look at me funny. They think I'm some kind of sex predator. Not the case.
When they ask me, "Who are you here watching?"
I simply say, "That dreamboat of a 3rd base coach."

It is a Polish doughnut that can be found in Hamtramck bakeries in Michigan. It is deep fried dough filled with anything you can think of. Apples, Lemon, Cream, Raspberry, Chocolate etc.
Since I am unable to enjoy my Paczki here in Charleston, I lean towards my Mississippi born husbands Fat Tuesday tradition. Enter the King Cake.
A New Orleans tradition which are easier to find here in Charleston. It is basically twisted bread which can be filled with fruit, cream cheese and pralines. Matt and I just like the cinnamon King Cake. The cake is covered with frosting and colorful Mardi Gras colored sugars. Oh and there is a tiny plastic baby hidden in the cake which signifies the Sweet little 8 pound, 6 oz Baby Jesus. :)
So yes, I will be eating something bad for me today. But Ash Wednesday kicks off tomorrow where I'll give up baked goods... Wait, maybe not baked goods. My birthday is during Lent.

Hello Good Looking!
The Tent was huge. This is just a sliver
A Tiny Little Cocktail from the Gin Joint booth.
So this pic and the next ones are rough. Basically just us walking back to the car.

The Charleston Food+Wine Festival has been going strong since Thursday
Tonight Matt and I are heading to one of the big events and I purposely have been starving myself all day... Can't wait to see what these Charleston Chef's have planned for me.

Today I'm enjoying a little patio time and writing out some plans for the yard.
Sidenote: This is my favorite cup! I seriously have a deep rooted love for Tervis Tumblers.
What are your garden plans for spring/summer/fall? Small herb pots? Climbing Morning Glories?
Anyone want to come over and help me weed and clear branches?
