How great are long weekends? The bf and I just returned from a road trip down to Charlotte, NC to visit one of my oldest friends, her husband, and their adorable 7-month-old baby girl. It was an awesome weekend of babies, BBQs, and (of course) shopping! Below is a little photo diary of my trip — the only thing missing was a Bachelorette sighting, despite our very best efforts to stalk Emily Maynard’s home! (btw, if you like the Bachelorette’s fashion, hop over to the Possessionista for the scoop on all her outfits).
A trip to the South is not complete without a stop at the outlets and case of delicious Cheerwine.
Meet the world’s cutest baby (and mom!)…
We spent Memorial Day grubbing down hickory smoked pork. The baby spent the day inspecting the bf’s beard.
Shopping, of course, shopping. These pics are from Boris + Natasha, one of Charlotte’s many hip clothing boutiques.
Petal is another boutique to add to your list of must-sees if you’re in Charlotte. Kinda felt like I was in Miami Beach!
How did you all celebrate the long weekend?
