For dinner we went to Mellow Mushroom, quick, delicious, and just down the street from my sister's new house.

Had a long overdue sleep in and then headed downtown. We had lunch at Poogan's Porch, recommended by both Andie and the Preppy Leopard. We had a relaxing lunch on the upper porch then did some shopping on King Street.

I had a blogger brunch with Kelly, Christy, and Heather at Acme Lowcountry Kitchen on Isle of Palms. I felt like we had been friends forever and we had a great time chatting about life in Charleston, blogging, celebrities, and more. Meeting blog friends in person is such a fun thing to do when traveling. I joked that I want to do a cross country road trip and visit blog friends in every state!

After brunch my sister and I headed to Boone Hall Plantation. There is so much history at Boone Hall Plantation. It is one of the country's oldest working plantations. We did the house tour, bus ride, and did a lot of walking around the grounds. You may also recognize Boone Hall as Allie's summer house in the Notebook and the place where Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got married. After walking around and doing the tours we stopped for a quick drink and snack on our way home at Liberty Tap Room and Grill in Mount Pleasant. Get the cheese fries!

The rest of the evening my sister unpacked and I kept her company. Since we had a late lunch we just went to the Gin Joint for drinks and soft pretzels (I didn't realize how popular these were in Charleston-I would eat them at every meal if I had the chance!)
My sister and I had brunch at Old Village Post House in Mount Pleasant. Hands down the best french toast I have ever had! We walked around the cute little neighborhood and then my sister took me to the airport.
