weekend happenings and yes, it did involve food.



on saturday, the family and i headed out for an afternoon out at Bluffton (right by Hilton Head to those of you familiar with SC geography). i needed to stock up on supplies for the shop and for Creative Estates handmade market (eeek - just a couple weeks away!!). mom, ashley and i also wanted to scope out on the shopping as there are some great outlets in the area. we didn't do too much damages - but i did find an uh-mazing pair of GAP wide-leg denim trousers on sale. love the trousers, love the price even more.

while out there, ashley told us about che burger che burger. and dude, it was so delish. i mean come on it involved real burgers with real angus beef (not the typical fast food kind). the fun part was that you could choose your own toppings from the many, many options. (the menu even included peanut butter as an option for a topping - not that we picked that but talk about options!). oh and their onion rings and fries were to die for! 

oh and loved these pics so much, thought i'd link them up to sweet shot tuesday!

Sweet Shot Day

if not, what's your idea of the perfect weekend lunch?

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]

  29. Being a vegetarian, I can't say I eat a ton of burgers, BUT I do have a favorite vegetarian burger.

    My fiance and I went to Tart in Hollywood, CA and I got a vegetarian burger there. It was delicious! Not to mention, right after that we checked into our motel in Santa Monica and walked to the pier where we got engaged. :]
