Ryan's friend growing up in Texas happened to be in Charlotte, NC for work this past weekend, so we made a spontaneous trip to visit him! Several of our friends from Clemson live in Charlotte, so we decided to make a reunion out of it!
Burt first, this happened:
I got to leave work early Friday to make sure I was safely at home when the ice started falling. I will say my apartment parking lot was a skating rink that night, but otherwise no harm was done! It was quite nice working in my pajamas under a blanket while it was "snowing" outstide!
Saturday involved breakfast, work, and then we were off to the big city!
Let me tell you, my namesake sure is pretty!
|How cool does the sky look?|
We had dinner at Midwood Smokehouse and bar-hopped in Uptown Charlotte.
A brunch complete with bloody marys and then we were back on the road home Sunday.
How many more of these mini getaways can I take to survive busy season?
In other news, I had lunch with my realtor Tuesday and we're going to look at a few houses on Saturday! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. I've been having pretty hilarious dreams about the house hunt. Like just last night, I had a dream I went to look at a house and Phil and Claire from "Modern Family" were living there. Haha :)
I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!
