How do you imagine waking up while you are on vacation?
Ha! My workout buddy and I woke up the gang by laughing at ourselves while attempting Hip Hop Abs.
“You see how they’re getting in it and twerking? Just do the wobble.”
I’m clearly born to be a hip-hop dancer.
After sipping on my Shakeology on the patio and taking in a view of the marsh, we packed some sandwiches and headed over to Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens. I would like to say we decided to go there because of the history behind the location, but I’d be lying. With a group of five girls, you can only assume they went to Boone Hall because that’s where the movie, “The Notebook” was filmed! Yes, we found the spots where Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams stood, but we also learned loads of history that is behind this property.
We went on a trolley tour, where we were able to see most of the 738 acres of land and learned the backstory of it all! We also got to explore the mansion and check out the self-guided tours of the slave houses (one of my favorites).
After hours of exploring Boone Hall we headed back to our condo to rest and get ready for a night on the town. Incase you were wondering, catching up on reruns of Catfish is always a necessity in glam time.
We started the night having dinner at “Slightly North of the Border”- aka the S.N.O.B. When I tell you they can make delicious food, that is truly an understatement. I will never look at pork chops the same way. Additionally, when I say that this was a fancy establishment, I mean it is the real deal. I may or may not have been shunned by one of the girls for snap chatting. I mean, who wouldn’t want to document about how your napkin appeared folded into a pyramid every time you stepped away from the table? In my defense, my idea of fine dining is typically Chick-fil-a and Brusters (aka #NannnyLife).
We decided to walk off all of the wonderful food we had just consumed and explore the nightlife of the Charleston Historic District. All weekend we were constantly checking our weather apps in fear of getting rained on. Thankfully the weather was on our side and we got to see the city with clear skies!
The last item on our itinerary was checking out a ghost tour. While it wasn’t what we expected, we still got to learn more history of the city and ghost sightings. One of the highlights of the tour was checking out a dungeon that dates back hundreds of years!
We finished the night at our condo with some key lime wine and chips and guacamole while in our pajamas. In my opinion, that’s the perfect way to end a day of endless exploring.
