Over the weekend I took my first AR Workshop class after admiring their projects on Instagram for months. I chose their “Merry Mail” Christmas card holder project because I think it’s adorable, and because the past few years MPR and I have been taping our Christmas cards to the wall and I wanted a cuter,… Continue reading AR Workshop: Merry Mail Card Holder
I’m not one of those girls who’s ashamed to eat. I acknowledge when I’m hungry, I believe in dessert, and I unapologetically do not order the salad when what I really want is the burger. As a result, I’m no longer a size four, but my soul is nourished and my life is so much… Continue reading The ultimate Charlotte food tour for out-of-town guests

Last Fall I missed out on apple picking because the season is so short in the south. I wasn’t about to let that happen again, so over Labor Day Weekend MPR, Rufio and I headed down to Windy Hill Orchard & Cider Mill in York, SC.

I kind of felt like I was back home at the town park. It was filled with bleachers, kids running up and down… Continue reading King of Pops
I recently signed up for a Charlotte library card, and it was the first thing I did that said, “I’m staying here for awhile.” The only other library card I’ve had is from back home in Delmar. I never had one while living in Cortland, Connecticut, or Troy. It seems small (after all, it’s free),… Continue reading 3 ways to save money with a library card
This past spring, MPR created a New York Islanders meet-up to watch the Stanley Cup Playoffs among fellow hockey fans. Through this group, we discovered Brevard Court in uptown, and The Upper Deck at Courtyard Hooligans quickly became our go-to spot. The owner let us take over the bar during Islander playoff games, but it’s really… Continue reading Bayern Munich/Inter Milan soccer game
