Weekend visitors and Gunner's 1st birthday ~

This past weekend was pretty eventful; S's brother and SIL came to visit with their dog, Roscoe, and we celebrated Gunner's first birthday with a trip to the beach.

Gunner's actual birthday was on Saturday, but we had planned to go sailing up at the lake with Dan and Amanda. It was an absolutely perfect day and we had a blast as always.

Charleston Restaurant Week also started recently so we decided to go for a nice dinner at Blossom. I had the Shrimp Cake appetizer, the Mahi entree, and the Caramel Fudge Brownie for dessert. It was all very good, as always.

I didn't realize it at the time, but found out later that Heather from Sweet Tea Monograms was there with her man as well! What a small world. If you haven't heard of her Etsy shop before, you should definitely check it out, she has the cutest stuff!

On Sunday, we packed up the pups and headed down to Edisto Island. The weather was perfect, once again, and the dogs had a blast playing and running up and down the beach.


This was the first time we let Gunner really run and play off his leash at the beach and he loved every single minute of it. He passed out in the car immediately and even though it's now Tuesday, he still seems exhausted!

I couldn't get over how beautiful Edisto Beach is, so much less crowded than the other popular Charleston beaches. They also have a really pretty campground right on the beach filled with lots of green grass and palm trees galore. I can't wait to spend a weekend camping there!

Hope you all had a great weekend as well!!
