Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


South Carolina

I have never been to this state other than passing through.  I'd love to hear from families who live or have lived in South Carolina, particularly the Greenville area.  Early Saturday morning, we packed up the 4 youngest and headed south.  We went through some snowy weather, but the drive was pleasant enough.  Once we arrived and check into our hotel, we headed downtown.  We really enjoyed it.  There seemed to be many shops and restaurants.  There is a beautiful waterfall with walking paths all around.  Despite the cold weather, many people were out enjoying the day.


We drove around trying to find some neat places, but with no guide, we were a bit limited.  Saturday night, we met a man at our hotel who gave us a little insight into the area along with a great map.  Sunday morning, we got up early and made our way around the city, getting a better idea about the area.

On our way home, we had to make a stop for Jack in Spartanburg.   You know they have this restaurant there called The Beacon, which Jack found on the Man vs. Food site?  Jack could have his own TV show about food.  He finds certain foods interesting, and will try about anything.  He tried the chicken feet while in China.  He said it was leathery.

The Double Chili Cheeseburger-A-Pleny.  That says it all.  He was stuffed, and I was still tasting it hours later (and I only ate a few onion rings and a small cup of chili).

So, any South Carolinians read my blog?

7 kind words:


HA! I live in Simpsonville (suburb of Greenville) and I grew up in Spartanburg! I check your blog everyday.... what would you like to know? We have a wonderful area- close to mountains and not too far from the beach... mild weather...lots of good shopping and cultural activities... I could go on and is

Wendy in OH

No, but if I could pick any state to live in, that's the one! Ocean, mountains, green green green!


I am a South Carolinian!! I live in NC now, but I am from SC - Charleston to be exact. IF you head that way, let me know. I might can suggest some stuff. I don't know much about upstate though.


For the most part, I've only passed through too.

Although, I have been to Columbia to catch a few Florida Gator football games. That's about all I'm good for in SC. lol.


What a lovely waterfall. I've never been to S.C., but it looks beautiful.


We lived in SC for three years but we lived in Seneca which is 52 miles from SC and 9 miles from Clemson. SC is absolutely beautiful. We use to drive the 52 miles to attend church in Greenville but don't know much more about it than we visited the mall quite often, Barnes and Noble and BJU for their book store. Was the picture with the waterfall by the BiLow Center?


I am not a South Carolina resident but Northern one although you know I am not a local!! LOL

Hey girlfriend, whats with driving past me and not stopping in for a cuppa? ;) You know we have to get together one day because I so want to meet you!!

Glad you had a great time.
