Singing, Eating, and Growing!

What a weekend! Warning: this is long!
I had the privilege of singing in another one of my friends weddings this weekend! So once again we had a Friday night rehearsal dinner and Saturday night wedding.  I also squeezed in a tennis match Saturday morning and won! It was SOOOO HOTTTT I was a little worried but was downing water and Gatorade and taking my time to rest between games. This was my first pregnant win of the summer! Haha! I owe a lot of that to my partner/brother, Davey...he makes me look good! I do feel bad for the guy we played....he had to tell everyone he got beat my a pregnant lady hehe! :)

Anyways,the wedding went smoothly and then early Sunday morning, my mom and I headed to Charleston, SC so I could do some MORE singing! Our church choir had been invited to sing in the Spoleto Festival
in Charleston this year.  My mom and I arrived in Chucktown at 2pm Sunday, I rehearsed at 3 and sang the concert at 5! What a LONG day for anyone, let alone someone 6 moths pregnant! After the concert we had the most DELICIOUS dinner at Slightly North of Broad.
I started my meal with the Tomato Mozzarella Bruchetta which was to die for!

I must attempt this recipe at some point...not that I could do it justice :)

For my main meal I ate the BBQ Tuna which was just as yummy but the best part was the side of cheese grits! You cannot go to Charleston and NOT get some grits! Needless to say I was too stuffed for the Apple Pie I had been eying but thats time! 
I took the day off Monday and before we hit the road home, we relaxed at the beach for a bit.

Me and my belly at the beach :)

It was rediculously hot..but the breeze off the water was pretty nice!
