Five on Friday

Linking up with April and Christina because it's FRIDAY!

ONE - my parents got me a picture painted of our first home together for my birthday.  My friend Katie was talking about it one day and I asked her for the lady's contact information.  Katie's mom who is a Charlotte realtor uses this lady to draw these pictures for her clients.  It is GORGEOUS and this picture does not do it justice with the light reflection on it.  Every little detail is perfect...even our plantation shutters, specific trees and lights!  It's amazing!  Mom had it framed at a shop in Maryland.  Isn't it stunning?!!  I'm super excited to find the perfect spot in our home for it!

TWO - on Wednesday night the four of us bloggers went to Pacos Tacos for a girl's night out.  From left to right - April, Laura, Me, Sarah!  These ladies are wonderful and we had such fun together!  The Charlotte blogging community is so large so it's impossible for everyone to get together all the time.  I'm glad we all have the understanding that we have to get together in smaller groups to be realistic!

THREE - Chesapeake Bay Crab and Beer soup AND Maryland Cream of Crab soup in the same day!  Yes, I was in Maryland this week for a day.

FOUR - Who has read the Reality Steve spoilers about Juan Pablo's upcoming season of The Bachelor?  I won't spoil any surprises but I'm not shocked at all the craziness this season.  And who is excited for Sean and Catherine's wedding in January, live on ABC?  Woohoo!  

FIVE - Anyone in Charlotte running/walking the Turkey Trot in Southpark on Thanksgiving Day?  I'm looking forward to starting a new tradition and doing it!  

Happy Friday!

We won't be here for Thanksgiving but that sounds like a fun tradition!

Cream of crab soup is heaven. Where were you eating that delicious looking bowl?
If you were still in MD you could join us in Annapolis for the TT!

I know a few people running it--are you doing the 5k or the 8k? I've thought about doing it, but I'm slow.......... :-)

Love the picture of your house!

Can you share the artist? I'd LOVE to get one for Connor for our 1 year anniversary...it is a perfect "paper" gift!

I"m catching up on old posts and wondering if you'd share the contact info for the artist who did the picture of your house? I'd love to have one done of our house and have been thinking about it for a while. We live in Greensboro, but my mom is in Charlotte and could swing some pictures over to her.
