This weekend, I did not have to travel for work due to it being the Fourth of July weekend. Up until about Tuesday, I was going to just have a low-key weekend but then Jenna decided to come visit and I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER SHE DID 🙂 🙂
She arrived Friday night really late cause she drove straight from work and we didn’t do much that night but have some brownie sundaes and go to bed.
Saturday morning, we woke up and went to Amelie’s French bakery for breakfast and it was so cute and fun (S/O to my squad). I had a delicious blueberry and cream cheese muffin and a salted caramel brownie café mocha coffee, which made me want to die cause it was so good. Afterwards, and basically the whole reason Jenna came this weekend, we went to David’s Bridal to pick out and try on our bridesmaids dresses for Dani’s wedding #teamtino.
After, we went to some cute and fun shops that I have been dying to go to, but are more fun to shop in with friends. So we went to Swoozies (literally heaven on earth). So its kind of embarrassing but Jenna and I were literally so obsessed with this store that we were psychopaths in there. If I can give you any indication of how much of a psychopath, I took photos. We also went to some cute boutique shops with the most adorable clothes, and went to Park Road books, which is funny cause Jenna has called them multiple times to book appearances for her authors for work.
After we went shopping, we went into Uptown to explore. Drew had to go to work for a few hours Saturday afternoon, so we wandered around the city and I showed Jenna things like the Epicentre and Romare Bearden Park and things like that until Drew was done working. When he was done, he gave Jenna a little tour of the ballpark.
For dinner we went to Cantina 1511 and it was DELICIOUS. We ate entirely too much guacamole but it was so so so good.That night, we went out to Whiskey Warehouse to have some drinks.
Sunday morning we went to Duck Donuts to get some freshly made donuts (once again delicious). Afterwards, we drove around and looked at beautiful homes and then took a walk through Freedom Park. We spent our afternoon lounging by the pool and then decided to make corn on the cob and burgers for our little Fourth of July dinner.
After dinner, Drew had to go to work for a few minutes so Jenna and I went along to hang out in the park across the street and then we all went to get ice cream at the Elizabeth Creamery! I had a cone of black raspberry and it was so good, and whenever I eat it, it makes me think of my Nana ❤ Finally, we came home for the night and just hung out together and watched a movie.
Unfortunately Jenna had to leave Monday morning and wasn’t able to stay around for the baseball game and fireworks afterwards. They were legitimately the best fireworks I have ever seen in my life, and I had such a great view of them. The Knights have fireworks every Friday night and I never get to see them because I’m always traveling, so it made me so happy to actually get to see some fireworks for once!
It was such a wonderful weekend spent with Jenna. So much so, that I constantly kept asking her when she was going to come move to Charlotte. I’m so happy that she decided to make the trip to visit and that I have such a wonderful friend ❤
