We had such an awesome weekend!!!  I got the big news that I passed the bar exam Friday at 4:30 (can you believe they made us wait 3 months to find out if we passed)!  Needless to say, I was relieved, excited, pumped, etc, etc.  T and I went to my favorite restaurant, The Melting Pot, for dinner.  Have yall ever eaten there?  It is delicious and it will put you in a serious food coma!  Saturday we watched football (all day) and sadly, UGA lost yet again to the Gators.  Oh how I hate them!!!!  We also had some awesome trick-or-treaters, who we treated to a load of Reese's, Nerds, and Sweet Tarts.

T got me a dozen roses for passing.  I decided to put them in the smaller vases, so I could enjoy them all around the house.  The vases are really old candle containers - if you freeze them for a day, you can easily pop out the leftover wax, then pop them in the dishwasher.  They make great little vases - and they are awesome for parties bc you can put flowers everywhere.  T has made me stop collecting them though bc now I have so many, I think I could be on Hoarders!

Sunday we went to Charleston for lunch and to shop.  I really didn't buy any except this Le Creuset dutch oven.   I'm really excited about this - a sign of age.  Does anyone have one?  Do you love it?  It was hard to pick a color.  I wanted something fun, but then I got second thoughts and decided I should go for something neutral.  T is expecting lots of great dinners after purchasing this item.  Any ideas for dinner - I need them!

We didn't tour around too much, but I did snap a few pictures...Charleston is so beautiful and old.  I really love it there.

Sweet Husband

He would kill me if he saw this.  Hahaha - can you tell he is the youngest child and the only boy in the family?  Such a show off.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I've got the same dutch oven in tomato red. Hands down one of my favorite kitchen items. It makes me happy everytime I see it on the stove and food ALWAYS tastes better when made in it. I make chicken curry, all my soups, chili and a lot of Indian dishes in it. you'll love it! sounds like you had a fabulous weekend and bar passing celebration. :)

Hi there! I found your blog from Tessa. Congratulations on passing the Bar! Love your blog. We just got back from Charleston a couple of weeks ago. We try to visit at least 2 times a year. Happy Wednesday!
