Girls Weekend + Brunch at Virginia’s

While in Charleston this past Sunday, we stopped in Virginia’s on King (our favorite) for brunch.

I had the Farmer’s Omelette with home fries and a homemade biscuit. (Insert all the drool emojis).

The crab cakes and stone ground grits are what southern dreams are made of.

I know it was breakfast, but when waiter, Thomas, brought Key lime pie to the table, we couldn’t resist! Never mind we were completely stuffed.

It’s not surprising that Sunday brunch gets very crowded with a major rush around ten a.m.  Don’t let folks standing outside deter you from waiting. The staff does a fantastic job of opening tables and the wait is not long. Be sure to go hungry and plan for this to be your only meal of the day. Portion sizes are comparable to dinner dishes. Parking is never a issue, Virginia’s is just steps away from a parking garage.

After brunch we stopped in Buxton Books to see author, Melinda Long. She was there for a book signing and we were there to spy on her while checking out the cozy new location. (More on the bookstore in another post).

After Charleston, we followed the sunset to Pawleys.

I was in dire need of a mini-vacation. So after working all day Sunday, my girls and I reveled in the down time of the island.

It was heavenly.

In fact, I rolled over Monday morning and looked at the time on my phone – it read 10:45! What?!? I’m pretty sure I was fifteen the last time I slept that late. Clearly I needed it.

As I write this post, JP and Andrew are drowning in Fortnite while Preston roller blades through the living room.

Home sweet home!
