A family weekend: IOP

CHEERS TO 2017! 





May seem like we’ve been MIA but we have been working like crazy and finally had a week to relax and unwind with our mom and brother!

We rented a beach house out on IOP for the weekend and it was nothing short of amazing. Although the weather didn’t exactly cooporate and was a bit chilly we still made the most of our time and had a blast. We bundled up for morning walks on the beach, drank coffee cozied up by the fire, and laughed our asses off at family dinners and game nights.

While our Mom was here we thought it would be the perfect time to go wedding dress shopping! We made an appointment at White on Daniel Island and were greeted by Jodi, the owner, and some champaign! We had a ball of time and Carol may have even found her dress! Can’t wait for y’all to see it!

Also, happy 2017, make this new year the best yet! We are excited for this year and what is to come.

 

Cheers,

Sunset On Sullivan’s Island: Station 22 1/2

With our blog we try to capture our lifestyle to its most unique and true form. And this is us at our happiest–> barefoot walking to the beach with our loves, playing in the oceans waves, taking in the gorgeous sunset and getting eaten alive by mosquitos(Jk-they are our worst enemy.) If there are any mosquito repellent companies that want to hook some sistas up, hollllla at us 😉

There is something about a sunset that truly captures the body, mind and soul. For us, it’s a reminder to be present in the moment, enjoy the company you are with, look around and be thankful for EVERYTHING.

If you ever visit Charleston(which you need to), watching a sunset at Sullivan’s Island needs to be on your list of things to do.

Cheers,

K||C

Girls Trip to Napa Valley, CA

This trip could not have been timed any more perfectly, y’all! Unfortunately there was a massive hurricane headed to the east coast and we escaped it just in time. We felt somewhat bad sipping on wine in sunny California while our friends and family back home in Charleston were dealing with the chaos. Shoutout to Trev (Kenzie’s Husband) for holding down the fort!

This trip was all thanks to our best friend, sister and life coach, Kristy Smith. We went to celebrate her birthday and it just happened our other best friend, Sam, was out there with her family celebrating a bunch of birthdays in their family, so we all got to reunite and have some much needed girl time!

Our trip consisted of adventures throughout Palo Alto, San Fransisco, Stinson Beach, and of course wine country(Napa, Sonoma, and Calistoga)! Relaxation was our key word for the trip. We got our workout on while hiking through the beautiful red woods in Stinson Beach, sipped wine with our girlfriends in Napa and Sonoma Valley, and walked/shopped the busy streets of San Fransisco. It was an absolutely incredible trip and we cannot wait to go back!! Check out our pictures to see what we got into:)

Cheers,

^^The view from our hike. Love seeing the beach and mountains at the same time!!

^^The sweetest dog named Kibo we met at the beach.  Ended up taking some really neat pictures of him and sending them to his owner!

^^Who else could eat this everyday?! OUR FAV! 

^^Hiking through the amazing Red Woods at Stinson Beach.

Napa Valley

^^Our first wine tasting at Frank Family Vineyards!

^^The gorgeous and relaxing spa at the Solage Calistoga. It truly was heavenly!

Napa Valley

^^Biking up and down all of the vineyards might have been one of our favorite parts of our trip. All of the leaves are starting to change colors and it is truly magical!

^^JaM Cellars in downton Napa. Super chill, fun, and really great wine!!

^^Hawkes Winery in downtown Sonoma. We sat outside on their charming patio and had a bottle of their rosé. Absolutely delicious!

^^Alright y’all, if you have ever heard of Philz Coffee you already know about their mint mojito coffee. Holy MOLY it is so freaking good. If you are in Palo Alto, stop and get you one because you will not regret it!

Lunch on the water: Tavern and Table

Looking for the perfect lunch spot? Look no further, Tavern and Table is the place to go. With an incredible view of shem creek, tasty food, and great selection of drinks, you can’t go wrong.

Everything on the menu sounded so good, we probably spent ten minutes trying to decide what to order. We ended up choosing the kale and brussels salad, and the fish n’ chips(probably because it reminds us of our kiwi dad). We sipped on Rose’ as we soaked in the beautiful waterfront view on their comfortable patio furniture. The salad was light and refreshing and complimented our fish n’ chips perfectly. The fries somehow disappeared way too quickly… Whoops! HA! A little bit of greens and some fish n’ chips was the perfect Shem Creek combo!

Tavern and Table was designed to “celebrate the food and beauty of Charleston and the Lowcountry,” and we think they have accomplished so. Check them out on Instagram, and their Website for more on their menu and what they are all about. Thanks for the great lunch and shoutout to our man, Britton Boomer, at the Beckett Agency for the recommendation!

First Timer’s Guide to Whitefish, Montana

Headed to Whitefish, Montana and need some recommendations? We have you covered with an overview of what to do, where to eat, and how to make the best of your time in the beautiful state of Montana!


Where to Stay: Hidden Moose Lodge 

The Hidden Moose Lodge is a B&B tucked in the mountains of Whitefish, MT. They are conveniently located near downtown Whitefish, Glacier National Park, Whitefish and Flathead lakes. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay on our visit. The employees that work there are friendly, very accommodating and knowledgeable on what to do and where to go! Did I mention they know how to cook?! Every morning you wake up to the smell of hot coffee brewing and the ladies whipping up a home cooked breakfast! Just a taste of what we had: Huckleberry pancakes, chorizo quiche, and breakfast pizza. YUM!

We would enjoy our breakfast and then head out for the day of mountain adventures. Upon returning from the fun filled day you are greeted with complimentary drinks and snacks. Also, a hot tub with a view of the lush tree filled mountain side to soak your sore legs!

I would most definitely recommend staying here if you are up for a visit to Whitefish, MT! Thank you Hidden Moose lodge for the amazing experience.

What to do: 

Glacier National Park: This might be one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. With over 700 miles of trails, pristine forrest, going-to-the-sun road, waterfalls right and left this is the perfect place to get your adventure on. What I would recommend is getting up early for a day in the park. Start at Lake McDonald (hop in for a quick swim!), drive up to the “going-to-the-sun road,” hit up a bunch of different look out points, and keep driving because it only gets better. We drove deep into the park and landed at Lake Mary Trail. DO IT! Incredible waterfalls and glacier pools surrounded by bear country. You can’t get any better.

Glacier Raft CoWe had the awesome experience of white watering raft down the middle fork flathead river in Glacier National Park. Our guide, Alex, was hilarious, knowledgable and showed us a rockin’ time. We even got stuck on a rock and almost flipped our boat! Talk about adrenaline rush! Best white watering rafting in Whitefish.

Big Mountain Resort: I had a solo day to myself while the boys had a bachelor hiking day. I went up to the beautiful Big Mountain Resort. They have mountain biking, hiking, an alpine slide, zip lining and tons of other outdoor actives to check out. I took the gondola up to the top of the mountain and hiked/ran down to the bottom!

Whitefish Lake: Whitefish Lake has stunning views and tons of water sport actives to do. Swimming, jet skiing, boating, wake surfing, fishing, paddle boarding, and kayaking. The beautiful Whitefish lodge is located on the water with all of the toys to rent out for these water adventures.

Downtown Whitefish: The best way to get to know a place is to walk around and see the sites. Downtown whitefish is filled with local shops and restaurants to check out.

Some of my favorites include:

The Red Caboose Coffee Shop

Stumptown Marketplace–> awesome sandwich shops and local artists booths inside!

Cowgirl Coffee, Near Whitefish Lodge

The Craggy Range Restaurant

The Great Northern Bar and Grill–> awesome bar with live music!

-Every brewery is awesome in town: Bonsai Brewing Project, Great Northern Brewing Company.

-There are local pottery and art shops all around town that really show off the rugged mountain feel of the town.

 

Lake McDonald–>Look how clear the water is!


Glacier National Park Views

Lake Mary Falls Hike–>

We jumped in at the first waterfall! It was freezing glacier water, but so worth being cold for a few minutes.


The wedding: 

I was absolutely blow away with the beauty of this wedding. The wedding was located at the stunning Whitefish Lodge, with dinner views of the insane Whitefish Lake. We sipped on drinks, ate some delicious food, danced the night away and celebrated the amazing Bride and Groom. Cheers to a trip of a lifetime.
