I have been meaning to write this post but a little thing called vertigo got in the way. My sweet boyfriend got me Rascal Flatts tickets as one of my birthday presents. On top of that, the concert was in Charleston...so we got to have a fun weekend getaway!
On our way out of town, stopped to get cheap gas and a fountain coke zero so I knew this was going to be a good trip! We made it to Charleston (thanks to my new GPS from Mike), checked into the hotel and then of course did some shopping.
Mike picked a great place for dinner...Old Village Post House. AMAZING!!!
After dinner, we headed to the concert. One of our favorite past times is "people watching" and man was this the perfect place. Jessica Simpson was the opening act and I decided singing just wasn't her thing. She just didn't do a very good job and was very uncomfortable on stage..maybe I'm being too hard on her but oh well.
But the Rascal Flatts made up for her poor performance. They did an awesome job and its the best one of their concerts I have seen.
Keeping with my true grandma fashion, we left the concert and headed back to the hotel to get some sleep :)
Sunday, we went to Seacoast Church and it was such a fun experience. I have been wanting to attend a service there for a while now but haven't been able to. The Pastor didn't let us down and had a great sermon on Heaven. (the church was huge and amazing might I add)
My relatives live right down the street from the church, so we met them at their house then headed to downtown Charleston for brunch.
Mike got to meet Andy, Kara and 2 of their 3 kids (Meredith and Colin). Jay is a freshman at Wake so he couldn't join us. We had a fabulous brunch/lunch complete with mimosas and bloody marys!
After we said our goodbye's, Mike and I got on the road and headed back to Charlotte.
It really was the perfect birthday present!
