This past weekend Zach and I took a Babymoon ( aka a vacation before your new baby arrives ) to Bluffton, South Carolina. We actually never took one when I was pregnant with Lily and we both know that after this little man gets here in a few weeks, we're probably done having kids, so why not spend a bit of vacation together to relax before the chaos begins?
Bluffton is only a few minutes from Hilton Head and because Zach and I drove straight from dropping Lily off at a friend's for the weekend, we didn't get in until late Friday night. We woke up early Saturday morning and knew immediately we wanted to drive into Hilton Head to start our day.
We went to a few local outlet malls ( hello 70% off Michael Kors bags ! ) and opted to have lunch near the water at a restaurant many of you recommended. Poseidon is located in a cute little mall area overlooking the marsh's of the island. We opted to sit outside even though it was a little chilly out. I loved the fresh calamari and my blackened mahi mahi taco!
Afterwards I was able to get a much needed mani and pedi near by. I heard so many great things about SNS nails and wanted to give it a try since my nails are extremely brital and SNS nails are known to have vitamin c and calcium to help with your nail growth. Sign me up! Plus it was a non painless process and went by quick. A gel quality without the gel! I chose color 80 for those asking.
Sunday morning was a gorgeous one with blue skies and lots of sunshine so we took my Grandpa's convertible bug out to the beach! It was such a fun and relaxing morning that by mid afternoon we were really burnt and sleepy from being in the sun all day. Zach found a delicious restaurant on the water called Skull Creek Boathouse. We loved the low key atmosphere, the amazing seafood ( we adored the steamed oysters ) and how pet friendly it was. So many families brought their adorable dogs to enjoy the pretty day. We ended our last day of vacation with a quick dinner with my Uncle and went to bed early for our drive home yesterday morning.
As sad as it was that our Babymoon was over, we were anxious to see our little girl again! Hope you all had a great President's Day weekend!
