on monday after “wedding week” my BFF nicole and i drove to wilmington so she could have a meeting with the people she will be working for. after her interview, we had SUCH a nice day! she has been an expat for more than 5 years, so its so nice having her home for a little while! it felt like we were in high school-just road tripping, stopping to take pictures, eating, laughing and singing at the top of our lungs in the car. i loved every minute of it!

we stopped for lunch at oceanic, and ate right on the water…

trip to greenville

a few weeks ago i drove down to see husby in greenville, sc where he is working right now. i actually really like the city of greenville. it has a very mom and pop, indie feel which i love!

there is a new park in downtown called falls river park, and i had the best time exploring it- once while husby was at work, and again before our dinner date one night. it actually reminded me of a teeny tiny central park!…

we arrived late on friday night, and went straight to find something for dinner. we stumbled upon a sushi bar that was open till 5am. not only was it very chic and swanky, they had a DJ spinning tunes AND they served cotton candy after your meal. so cooL!
