Weekend Shenanigans

Happy Monday, loves! Do you ever have those weekends were you can't not laugh and smile when you think about all that happened? That's pretty much what happens when I think about these past few days that I got to spend with two of my best friends, Caitlin and Alyssa :) We laughed until we cried, danced, took a bunch of photos and danced some more!
After work on Friday, Alyssa and Caitlin came over to get ready and then we headed to one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte called Rock Bottom for a much needed dinner and girl time. One of the many reasons I love these two girls so much is because every time I am with them, I feel like no time has passed us by. And even though my 25th birthday is TOMORROW, I decided to tell the waiter that CAITLIN's birthday was that night...I know, I know...but who doesn't love a free dessert?!
After dinner and much needed catching up, it was time to start our evening out on the town...or in our case, spent hoping from place to place in Uptown Charlotte all.night.long! Some of the places we made some fun memories at were Howl at the Moon (a Dueling Piano Bar), Ri Ra's (an Irish Pub) and the Catalyst.
The next morning, Caitlin had to head out to a Doctor appointment so Alyssa and I ate a quick breakfast and hit the road to apartment shop in Charlotte and Matthews. Because my dad owns his own Construction company, I have always loved and grew up looking at models of homes and helping ask questions that most people forget to go over (such as "how many carbon monoxide detector's are installed in this apartment?") so I had a ball apartment shopping for Alyssa! And what better way to tour apartments then with a visit by a HUGE neighborhood dog at one of the places!
Oh! And before I forget, Alyssa made some new changes to her blog so be sure to check it out here! AP did a great job coming up with a new blog name and an adorable layout that she created all on her own! So proud of this sweet girl and can't wait for her to be only a few minutes down the road from all we have to do is get Cait to move her precious self back to the Queen City and all will be perfect <3

So all in all, I must say I feel extremely blessed and so thankful for having these girls in my life. It's important that each and every person finds that group of individuals that you can trust 100%. It's vital that you have that support system when you are in need of a shoulder to cry on or a hug for a job well done. The greatest thing you'll ever learn is to love and be loved in return...
