Weekend Recap//Life Lately

Life lately has consisted of running around like a crazy person, cleaning house, entertaining, cooking, shopping for Christmas gifts, finding time to wrap said gifts and trying to make a visit or two to the gym....Tis' the Season! That being said, we may be busy but I have no complaints.

Here are few scenes from the past few days and the weekend:

Last week we joined our friends for a little get together and indulged in this delicious spread along with some festive cocktails and a little cards again humanity.


Friday was our office Christmas party. There were only a few things to nibble on......

I made the Cookies & Cream Bars that I shared the recipe for a few weeks ago.
Friday evening we celebrated my husband's birthday with 21 of our friends at Miyabi Japanese Steakhouse. This is a yearly birthday tradition for him, and always a good time.

Fried rice for days.....

One word: leftovers!

After dinner the celebration continued by the fire at our house.

Most of Saturday was spent re-cooperating from Friday and also spending some time with a good friend of mine that was in town visiting. Saturday night we ventured out for some pizza and cocktails. We stopped at Voodoo, a fun, eclectic little bar in the Avondale area of Charleston. Voodoo was recently named best Happy Hour spot in West Ashley listed on the Charleston's 50 Food & Bev Favs by Charleston Magazine
I love going to this part of town especially when we don't feel like the hassle of making it downtown. If you live in the Charleston area, you should definitely check out the Avondale area. There are a handful of bars and restaurants and a few places to shop too. Our last stop of the evening was The Roost, a neighborhood hangout and sports bar with live music on Saturday's.
We had a great weekend spending time with family and friends. Time to recharge for the holiday week ahead!




  1. Fun weekend! My husband always wants to go to Miyabi and I get so mad because we have so many delicious restaurants here in Charleston and all he wants is Miyabi?! Ally - Life as I know it

  2. Too funny! It must be a man thing. And you're right, there are so many other good places, (which is why we keep it to once a year for his birthday dinner.)
