Weekend Recap

Can't believe it's Monday already!

As you know, we had plans to go to O-ku on Friday night.  It was packed and definitely worth a bit of a wait, even with a reservation. 
This is what I wore...
(The flash made my jacket look extra shiny, but it has very matte, understated sequins in regular lighting!)
Sequin Jacket, Purple Top is Target (old),  Denim Leggings, Black Leather Booties (similar), Necklace, Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 bag in Damier Ebene

Brandon was exhausted at dinner from working incredibly long hours in Raleigh all throughout the week, so we came home right afterwards to watch a movie.

I loved this movie!

On Saturday morning, Brandon and I ate cinammon rolls & later, went for a run in the gorgeous, sunny weather we had.  Figured we needed to run off the cinammon rolls and the white chocolate croissants we ate the night before!

Later that day, we went to Beaufort for the oyster roast I talked about on Friday's post.
It was cold, but way fun!

This is me with one of my best friends, Ryan.

Brandon and I were staying warm by the fire! 

(L to R) Brandon's dad and mom with their two best friends, Dave and Ginger.

In regards to Sunday morning, I think we were all thrilled to have an extra hour to sleep in!
We went to church & afterwards, Brandon, his parents, and I enjoyed brunch at
Blackstone's Cafe, which is located in Downtown Beaufort.

This restaurant has the most quaint, small town feel.  I love how their decorations make you feel as though you've stepped back in a time a bit.  Their food is delicious, too.
I had the shrimp & grits (YUM!).

When we got back to Charleston yesterday afternoon, we knew it was going to be another movie night.
This time, our selection was this...

I couldn't get enough of this movie!  It is definitely a recommendation ...especially coming from the girl that only watches comedies and chick flicks.

Glad to have this snack to go along with it.

No, this isn't just popcorn.

That's right, each piece of popcorn has been dipped in white chocolate!
(Don't stare at the ingredients too long because you're sure to find something unhealthy in there somewhere.)

This treat is from The Chocolate Tree in Beaufort.  Brandon's mom got us a couple boxes as a surprise, because she knows how much we love it. 

...and just for giggles, when I walked over to Brandon's house last night, this is how he and his buddies were watching TV.
Seems like the obvious television selection, right?
(they set up two TVs for football watching - so they can watch two games at once.)

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
