The ultimate Charlotte food tour for out-of-town guests

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

Saturdays are for the girls

Barstool Sports may say that Saturdays are for the boys, but this past Saturday was most definitely for the girls. My friend Amanda and I started our morning at the Pink Social Girl Tribe Pop Up sale at Sugar Creek Brewing. This pop up sale had 50+ women-owned businesses, including local boutiques and designers. The… Continue reading Saturdays are for the girls

3 things I miss about Troy

Outside my old agency! 🙊

I recently wrote a post about how our decision to move to Charlotte changed our lives in so many positive ways. But despite the truth in all of it, I couldn’t help but get a little nostalgic for our first apartment and the first little city MPR and I explored together.

Breakfast at AmĂ©lie’s

"Hey, are you gonna eat all of that?" đŸ¶

Sunday continued Charlotte’s trend of cooler air and lack of humidity, so MPR & I decided to take Rufio for a walk uptown. First we walked up to the main library branch to return two books, and on our way back we stopped at AmĂ©lie’s French Bakery & CafĂ© for a leisurely breakfast.

Summer is actually my least favorite season of the year. The only thing that makes it bearable down here is the fact that I have a pool right… Continue reading Friday vibes: August 26

3 ways to save money with a library card

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

Bayern Munich/Inter Milan soccer game

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
