Well, except for this.
|Snow. On the car with Florida plates.|
|That is probably bewilderment, not happiness, on my face.|
Because of the birthday nature of this trip, we determined that we must have cupcakes every day. Unfortunately, that was destroyed the very first day and we had to settle for just plain cake. At Olive Garden. After driving hours and hours from Tampa to Charleston.
|We were very excited about the lemon cake.|
Myrtle Beach followed Charleston. We went shopping at Broadway on the Beach and went around being silly, buying candy, and laughing at things. We got very tired and then in the morning we ate cupcakes for breakfast.
|Have you figured out what Meg's favorite color is yet?|
|Meg, me, Liz|
|Cara, Jessie, Ammy|
But I did get to see the Martin Luther King, Jr. monument ON Martin Luther King Day so that's something.
The next day it snowed and our friends' work day was canceled, which also meant we could not go to any museums because everything closed. So we just stayed home and ate sandwiches, candy, and homemade enchiladas.
|Candy necklaces for all!|
|Cara couldn't get enough of Meg's guacamole.|
|Don't worry! We shared!|
Charlotte was also way colder than I like (well, let's face it, anything below 80ºF is colder than I like), but we braved it to go to a cool Restaurant Week event and the Japanese food we had was fantastic. And we got pretty slap-happy over our cupcakes. Yes, more cupcakes.
And then finally we had to go back to Tampa. It was a LONG drive--punctuated by more music and Welcome to Night Vale radio--and when we got in we went to Moe's with our friends Steve and Jessica. Meggie stayed over my place for the night so she wouldn't have to drive back to Jacksonville that night.
I bet you can't guess what we did.
Yeah you can.
