As a mom of a four-year-old, I know how exciting it is to reach milestones: baby’s first steps, baby’s first solid food, baby’s first day of preschool… but today the husband reached a milestone, too. Details in a minute!
Last night we enjoyed dinner with friends… I had a salad and salmon with steamed broccoli.
I had a nice surprise for breakfast:
quiche and Starbucks! Yum! When I headed down to the conference events this morning, I expected to find a pastry bar, but I was surprised to find quiche! Yum! And a bold cup of Starbucks coffee! Perfect.
After the conference events, I was really craving sushi. With the help of Yelp (an awesome iPhone app!) I located a local sushi spot that had pretty good ratings: Soho. And it was within walking distance from our hotel! Score! Now, I have to tell you that the husband doesn’t eat sushi, but I really thought if I could convince him to go that he would like it. And he was a good sport and agreed.
Soho has a great atmosphere and is a cute little place. The only negative thing I could mention is that they still have a smoking section (so weird—I thought they were obsolete!) and even though we sat in the nonsmoking section… you could still smell it. But other than that, it was a great local spot that wasn’t overrun by tourists. (You know… I guess we were the tourists since we don’t live here… but I have been coming to Myrtle beach for so many years that I don’t consider myself a tourist.)
We started with Miso Soup and Calamari…
Both were delicious. The miso soup was really tasty and I liked that the tofu was really soft and silky. Even the hubby liked it!
We decided on the Spicy Tuna Roll and a Crazy Roll. Both were great!
The hubby gave his first sushi experience a thumbs-up! Now I can’t wait to take him to RuSan’s, my favorite spot in Charlotte!
We spent the rest of the afternoon shopping and wandering.
It is just really nice to be away and childless for a few days! I miss my little monkey a bunch, but it’s nice to have some adult time, too!
