Eating lunch on Kiawah Island

Wednesday, October 28, 2009


This has been such a fun vacation. The guys are about to grill dinner and of course watch the World Series. The guys went fishing earlier but didn't bring back any fish. I guess it's a good thing we went to the market and bought steaks and chicken or we would be out of luck. So I'll back up a few days and post what's been going on the last couple of days: Sunday we left Opelika and drove to Kiawah Island ( where we are staying: Dallas's parents have a house here and were so nice to let us stay here free of charge). We didn't get here until late so we stopped at a Fizoli's and had dinner. If you've never been to a Fizoli's it is basically fast food Italian. My spaghetti and breadsticks with a drink was $5.00. We definitely need one in Opelika. Monday we went to the Ocean Course to eat lunch. Just to eat and not play golf of course. A game cost approximately $200! We walked on the beach that afternoon. Monday night we grilled sword fish, corn, hush puppies, fries, rolls, and crab. It was a very good meal. The girls were only responsible for the hush puppies, fries, and rolls. We played a fun game of Trivial pursuit but the guys won. We came in a close 2nd though. Tuesday we spent the day in Charleston. We ate lunch at the Charleston Crab House and had the award winning She Crab soup. So yummy! We went and window shopped after that. We decided to go on a horse and carriage tour of the city and with our started pouring during the tour. Oh well we had fun and learned a lot about the city. Today we had to go back into Charleston and get cupcakes at Cupkae. I had the red velvet cupcake. Delicious! I am sad to leave tomorrow:( I'll post pics later.

I'm still alive

Yes I'm still here! Football season is in full swing and each weekend we've either had company or have been out of town. This past weekend I was freeeezing at the game. We really didn't get a break from hot to cold weather. It was the 3rd weekend in October and I had to pull out my scarf and gloves. And the poor tigers couldn't pull out a win. Oh well I guess it was time for Kentucky to win since I heard they hadn't since the 1960s.
This coming Sunday we are leaving for Charleston. I am so excited. It's time for a much needed vacation. We are staying on Kiawah Island with our friends Dallas and K. Dallas's parents own a house on the island and have graciously offered their house for free!
I hope the tigers can pull out a win against the other tigers. We will be at the 2nd annual Wileyween trying to pull them through.
