....have a love-hate relationship.

I've talked before about my efforts to fit into my dress. Part of that was giving up beer, French fries and fast food for about four months before the wedding. And it worked, I was down two dress sizes for my special day.

Let's just say that since then, I've been a little more lax, and it's starting to show in how my pants fit. That isn't cool and will have to change as I'm standing in a wedding in October. The cut of the bridesmaid gown is similar enough to my dress that I know what needs to happen here.

Should I go on another beer hiatus? That's so darn difficult when there are so many occasions during the summer when a cold beer just hits the spot. Besides, I really want to try this beer, featured in my Real Simple daily find email today:

After all, I'm a big fan of the other New Belgium beers, especially Fat Tire. New Belgium's beers have only been available in South Carolina for about a year, and I haven't ever seen this one in the stores, so I don't even know if I can get it, but it sure sounds good.

*Sigh* I guess if I want to keep my beer this summer, I better get off my lazy bum and get back to working out. No matter how hot outside it is. (BTW, it's 104 degrees today.)

As I mentioned earlier, the Mister and I headed to Charleston over the weekend for a day trip, but before that, we spent Friday evening watching the South Carolina Gamecocks win over Clemson in the College World Series semi-finals.

Saturday, I had to work during the day. Afterward, we headed to a birthday party for a close friend of the Mister's. The birthday boy's wife has a fantastic food blog. She's in grad school right now so her time for blogging is limited, but her recipes are worth waiting for. I might have also convince the birthday boy to turn on game two of the Carolina/Clemson series; they won again so on to the finals. (And we beat UCLA last night in Game One last night!)


Sunday was our trip to Charleston. We headed to Station 22 for brunch. I had a fried green tomato and pimento cheese sandwich. It was awesome! We also visited our favorite little island beach shop on Isle of Palms and then drove by the Mister's childhood beach house before going downtown.

Warning: As you can probably guess, this post will be picture heavy.

Of course, I have to share my favorite photos of just the Mister and me.

This weekend, the Mister and I taking a little day trip down to Charleston to enjoy the ocean. We're also planning on eating at Station 22 on Sullivan's Island, which is where we had our wedding reception.

I think that means it's a great time to share our reception photos, don't you? Here we go.

Check back tomorrow to see more!
