Wonderful Weekend in Cherry Grove

So I had a blast this weekend!  13 of us from our Sunday School Class packed up and headed to Cherry Grove beach.  I actually never set foot on the beach.  I actually never even wore short sleeves all weekend.  It was cloudy and "cold" considering how hot it's been lately.  But we had fun.  The great thing about going on a trip with a couples' class is that there are lots of kind of sketchy things said, but since we're married, it's ok.  The only odd woman out was one of Hubs and my best friends.  She's engaged and her significant other works crazy hours.  We ended up sharing a room with her.  That led to some other sketchy comments about Hubs staying in a room with two women, but it was all in good fun and we all know where our hearts are. 

On the other hand, I thought I was going to have to fight a hoochie drunk woman in the Japanese restaurant.  We think that she and her hubs were swingers and she was sitting beside MY Hubs.  I don't get mad when Hubs says that another woman is pretty.  I don't get mad at him when a woman tries to flirt with him.  I get mad at the woman doing the flirting and our group saw a side of me that I don't think they knew I had.  Luckily, they left when she finally determined that I wasn't going to let her at my Hubs. 

As always when I go on vacation, I ate waaaaay to much.  Japanese, Italian, Burgers from Johnny Rocket's, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, the list keeps going.  Speaking of eating, our first stop on the way to Myrtle Beach was Redbone Alley in Florence, SC.  This restaurant is a place that had we not heard was good, Hubs and I would have never stopped there.  It's in an old department store building and backs up to a Piggly Wiggly.  It honestly looks old and out of date from the outside. 
But on the inside...
It really looks like you're eating outside in a well decorated alley.  The balcony in the second picture has tables and chairs that you can eat at when the restaurant gets crowded enough.  And the food was amazing!  It's a little on the gourmet side, so don't go there expecting a cheeseburger, but it was soooo good!  It's totally worth stopping at if you're going to be in Florence.

For the rest of the trip we went outlet shopping and went to the Bass Pro Shops in Myrtle Beach (I love Bass Pro!).  Hopefully I'll have some outfit updates tomorrow from the trip and I'll show you my prizes from the Loft outlet.  I have determined that I love that store, but I don't need to go in it because of prices. 

It was a quick trip, but a much needed one.  Now I'm couting down to the trip to Pigeon Forge that Hubs and I (just us two) are going to take in October.  Only 6 more weeks!

  1. Woah. That looks fun! Vacations are the best time for eating. I love that I'm not alone in that belief. Ha ha.
