Having really fun outfits to wear during the Fall months make getting cold weather a little more bearable. The other day, I went out adventuring with a friend to a spot near my University to take some photos.
I am all about being outdoors before the snow comes. I really am a wimp when the weather gets cold. I would prefer wrapping myself in a blanket, drinking a warm beverage and watching Netflix.
The day was gorgeous and we got to enjoy the fall colors that Wisconsin gets this time of year,we visited the nearby Farmers Market one last time, grabbing some homemade Monster cookies and ended our fun with the perfect meal at Noodles. Pesto cavatappi yes please!
What are some of your favorite stores? What are your favorite colors this season?

It might be October, but every once in a while I think about the beautiful beaches of South Carolina and picture the delicious food that I could never seem to get enough of. I've told you about two of my top three places my family at in South Carolina, and I suppose I'll tell you about the third today.
It rained once, maybe twice while we were enjoying our stay in the southern state. One night, we decided to check out a restaurant called Chez Fish. If you're looking for fresh seafood, this is definitely the place. When you first enter Chez Fish, you are greeted by their display of different seafood that they offer to sell.
Don't be afraid, but there are cats that hang around the parking lot, we all guessed that they fed them after the store shut down for the night. Aside from the cats, we hurried inside from the rain into a store decorated with vibrant color and fun shore-themed decor.
Most of our food was recommended, my Tilefish was amazing, topped with a giant fried shrimpserved on top of carrot mashed potatoes. It was the special of the day, and the fish was so light and tasty, the carrot mashed potatoes, though completely unhealthy were amazing and I still dream about them today. The veggies and sauce blended everything together so well. (my mouth is watering just thinking about it! )
We may have been really really full, but couldn't resist a little slice of Key Lime Pie. I usually don't go for something with Lime, but this pie was just as delicious as the entree!
History intrigues me. Being in the south, surrounded by so much history was exciting for me. After a little hiccup during our trip, we delayed our voyage further down from Charleston, South Carolina to Savannah Georgia. The sun was shining and we had just finished our walk around the beautiful city and went on to find a plantation.
One thing, that Savannah is known for is the Wormsloe Plantation. What was once a grand plantation build in the 1700's, is now just ruins. What leads to the ruins of Wormsloe is what brings visitors in. You can take tours of the plantation, where people dress up in clothes they would have worn back in the 1700's.
Pulling into the Wormsloe Plantation, the long 1.5 mile (2.4 km) drive of oak trees greeted us, with long spanish moss hanging from their branches. The sunshine came through, off to the side there was a family taking photos of their children, cars were passing through. It's fair to say, we took plenty of photos.
Everytime we pulled into places like this, even winding through the trees back in Asheville on our way to the Biltmore, I couldn't help but imagine people travelling here in wagons and on horses way back when it had just begun. There is a museum once you pull in, which we ventured into and saw the diagram of what it would have looked like. You do have to pay a fee to take the tours, and since we were there about 20 minutes to closing, and knew we really only wanted to see the trees, my family opted out of it.
I love wildlife. Travelling opens your eyes to so many different things. While my family was on Kiawah Island for a week, we ran into so much wildlife. This post is going to be pretty picture-filled, I hope you don't mind!
