So for the longest time I have been looking forward to my “golden” birthday. They say that your golden birthday is when you turn the age of the day of the month. So for me it is 31 on the 31st. I lucked out to have one so late in life that I could do something fun. Unfortunately, I did not really think about anything radical for my golden birthday so I’ve come up with a list of 31 things I would like to do during my birthday week…yes I celebrate for AT LEAST a week. :)

Hope to have some pictures to share with you at the end of the week.

One of the things on my wish list is to take a day just for myself. I think I would like to lay on the beach all day, get all cleaned up (nails, toenails, hair, etc) and  go out to dinner at a nice restaurant. I wouldn’t mind going downtown to walk around through the shops. I would even love it if I got to sleep in to start the day off. :) I look forward to next Friday when this wish becomes reality!

Well I’ve been struggling to do anything for Tourist Thursday…partly because I am lazy and partly because I don’t know what to do. So today I did not want to waste a blog post and thought I would give it a twist today… These are the Top 5 Touristy Things I hope to do by the end of the summer!

Number 5: Go to Blackbeard’s Cove and/or Frankie’s Fun Park to play miniature golf, go-karts, batting cages and arcade games.

Number 4: Go out on a boat in the Harbor!

Number 3: Walk the Bridge and then go to Red’s on Shem Creek!

Number 2: Do Brushes and Bottles in Mt. Pleasant!

Number 1: Watch the Sunset at the beach and then hang out at one of the local hang outs.

So those are just a FEW things I’d like to do before the end of the summer. If you want to join me let me know! :) Be looking out because in two weeks I will be traveling to Phoenix and then Chicago so I will be posting Tourist Thursdays based on my experiences in those two cities.


In the next month, I hope to do the following TEN things…

1. Go to Cupcake (downtown).

2. Finish my TEN Random Acts of Kindness.

3. Paint a picture

4. Sit in Barnes and Noble and read some magazines.

5. Get some crab dip from RED’s ICEHOUSE.

6. Go see a movie in the theater.

7. Walk on the beach with the family

8. Get a Rocky Road Milkshake from Ye Ole Fashion

9. Take a boat out  into the Harbor (maybe the Charleston Thriller?)

10. Watch the Sunset from the beach/harbor

We’re going to the beach! I just told Clair that I never go to the beach, but today I just felt like I should do something I never do! Plus – she claims that she wants to be southern like me and I feel like beach bums are southern. I am not a beach bum so do that mean I am not southern? Or does that mean I need to step up my game? I’m stepping up the game now…going to the beach!
