Memorial Day Weekend

Hope you all had a nice weekend.  Back to the grind today. 

On Friday night it was storming pretty badly but around 9:15pm we decided last minute to walk to the Josh Turner concert.  We were being so indecisive all night about going because it was rainy and we just wanted to stay in and chill.  But I couldn't not go to a free Josh Turner concert 3 blocks from my house.  Let's be honest here haha!

We didn't stay the whole time because we were toast from the week and because of sooo many drunk high schoolers.  Seriously why weren't they at home?  They shouldn't be out galavanting the streets of downtown Charlotte AND drinking nonetheless.  I was not pleased with Charlotte's police crowd for not patrolling the crowd better.  Anyway, J.Turner put on a great show (what we could hear of it!). 

He's sooo cute!  It was held at the Nascar Hall of Fame (same place as Gary Allan last week). 

On Saturday I went to the pool for most of the day and Kevin came down for a bit too.  We got cleaned up and decided to escape downtown and the Speed Street festivities.  We jumped on the train and went out to South End.  We've been wanting to do this awhile so we finally did -- with Dave and Jenn - our great friends from the building.  We went to Big Ben, Tyber Creek (saw my friend Kyle and his girl), The Liberty (best mussels and soft pretzels ever) and ended at Vinnie's.  So much fun and we loved doing something different.

On Sunday we headed out to Southpark for a brunch but the place ended up being closed so we stopped at Mellow Mushroom on Selwyn.  We drove through some neighborhoods on the way back home. 

That afternnoon we cruised out to the Elizabeth area for a block party at Jackalope Jacks, P-Stone and Kennedy's.  It was a really nice day out so it made for a fabulous day to hang out outside and listen to some cool bands.  Yeah so nice that we were there for TEN HOURS!!!!  We got back to Ave after 1am!  We really did have fun with some of Kevin's high school buddies though!

Kevin and I at the last place - Kennedy's.  My hair and appearance has seen better days my friends.  It had been a very long day.
Yesterday I was up and at 'em to make use of my last day off.  I made the Skinny Taste Potato Salad - yummm...then spent the day at the pool.  We grilled out with some neighbors last night and headed up to watch The Bachelorette. 

Great weekend but I needed oneeeee more day to recover!  How about you all?  What was your highlight?


  1. Looks like fun--I have a dress in that same Trina Turk print!

  2. We were at Speed Street Friday night too.
    The weather was ridiculous.
    We actually started out at Jack's before heading down there.
    I miss my old neighborhood :(

  3. Love the dress!! I just found your blog and I love it!!!

  4. I'm so jealous that you got to see Josh Turner. We were at the beach or I would have loved to went. Even with the gross weather. I did see where the canceled it early Thursday night.

  5. Looks like you had an absolutely FANTASTIC weekend!!! :D
