Anniversary Weekend in Charleston

Dustin and I returned last night from a wonderful weekend in Charleston, South Carolina. We took the trip to celebrate 1 year of marriage! Here are some of the highlights from our weekend:

Beautiful sunset as we made our way south on Friday
Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse in Myrtle Beach
We were totally shocked to find out my wonderful parents had called the restaurant ahead of time, and arranged to treat us to dinner! They even had a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us at the table. Talk about VIP treatment!

The concept at this restaurant was so cool! They had an incredible salad bar (buffalo mozzarella, sushi, ahi tuna, salad, sauteed mushrooms, quail eggs, and all kinds of other stuff) and then you had this coaster for your meat. Red means you were good with what you had. When you flip the coaster to the green side, gaucho waiters walk by with swords filled with meat to carve tableside. We had lamb chops, filet mignon, flank steak, sirloin steak, bacon-wrapped chicken, and grilled pineapple. It was all so delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant concept, especially if you love a man who loves meat!
Looking sharp for a day of sightseeing in historic Charleston
Shopping around in the city market
Yummy-looking turtles in a candy store!
Happy one year to us!
Somebody's been drinking a lot of wine!
Very tiny French cafe on Broad Street
Flyer at the quaint little French cafe we ate lunch at on Saturday afternoon
Mmmmm... Ham and cheese toasted croissant and cream of broccoli soup
Don't we look tres chic?
Rainbow row houses
Spotted at Forever 21: the ugliest pair of pants EVER. I hope I never see someone wearing these.
This is the fancy Southern-style restaurant where we ate dinner at Friday night. I  had crispy fried chicken with biscuits, gravy, mashed potatoes and collared greens. Dustin ate some sort of seafood/rice dish. Oh, and we also had some scrumptious fried oysters as an appetizer. Highly recommend this yummy place!
Headed to Wet Willies for spiked slushies and an awesome live band. We took a cab there and back so we could really let  loose and celebrate!
Frozen beverages of the night
Sunday morning with raspberry mocha latte and some wonderful company
Famous "baked" red velvet whoopie pie

Maybe I can photoshop the two of us together into one photo?
Gosh, I need a tan
Cooking demonstration Sunday afternoon

Chicken with gravy and pear/sausage rice pilaf. Plus some merlot. Not too shabby!
