I am EXHAUSTED girls and guys! Today has been quite the active day. Fun, but major tiring.
It started out at 7 this morning with another 4 mile run on the trail from the condo. I am really gonna miss this trial when we leave! When I got back to the condo everyone was up and eating breakfast.
My breakfast was a repeat of yesterday. All Bran Flakes, Banana, blueberries, and Skim milk.
After Breakfast we all got ready and headed across the bridge into downtown Charleston:
We hit up all the shopping for a little while. I went to American Apparel and Urban Outfitters. I got the BEST dress EVER at UO. I'll get a pic a little later to show.
After doing a little shopping my sister and I decided to break from the fam and go have lunch on our own. Like I said, my family does not like anything "different", they like your typical chain restaurants. My sister and I just weren't feelin it, so we decided to go to Five Loaves Cafe, recommended by the wonderful Erica.
I got a Grilled Tofu sandwich with zuchinni, tomato, onion, and sprouts. And a salad with roasted red peppers, spinach, tomatos, and goat cheese.
Here is a closer look at the sandwich:
My sister and I really enjoyed our lunch. We were both really glad that we decided to go off on our own and eat here.
Here we are, happy with our decision:
After lunch we met back up with the family and went to the market place in Charleston.
This is one of my favorite things to do when we come down here. It is an old market place that goes on for what seems like miles and it is just set up with vendors and hand made goods like jewelry, decorative things, etc.
Here is a pic of the entrance:
Here is my sister and I after going through. Hot and tired. I swear we probably walked about 10 miles in the 90 degree weather!
After that we walked into Charleston place were all the upscale shops are.
Made a stop at me usual shopping place:
YEAH RIGHT! I'm a recent college grad with no full time job yet...remember?!
We also saw a pretty fountain and I HAD to have a picture of all the sissies in front of it.
Notice how different we all look from each other. Or maybe just how different I look from all of them. I swear I must be the milk man's child!
After hours of shopping, miles of walking, and TONS of sweating we came back to the condo and chilled out by the pool. Now I am in the room waiting for everyone to get in from the beach so we can get some dinner!
I just don't think I EVER wanna come home. I think I may convince my parents to just leave me here ;)
Hope you guys had a good start to your week. Again, Im sorry if I am not on top of commenting. I am trying to read blogs and comment when I get the chance. DONT think I am forgetting about you guys at all!
Lots of Love, <3 Ems.
