5 on Friday

It's FINALLLLLY Friday sweetums! I don't know why, but this week felt like it was dragging on and on and on. Maybe it was the off and on cold and rainy weather. Maybe it was the fact that Will was traveling for work and I had the condo to myself. Or maybe it's because I had an insane week of Doctor appointments and a to-do list that felt never-ending. Around Wednesday, I started to really question if the week was ever going to end! Thankfully, it did :) And 5:00 pm couldn't come quick enough! To jump start the weekend, let's dive into my 5 on Friday! I hope you that each of you has a fab weekend and can't wait to chat again come Monday morning! 

All you bloggers in the Charlotte and surrounding area make sure you mark your calendar for the first Charlotte Social Meet-Up of 2014 which is going to take place on the 30th from 6:30-8:00 pm! Pamela from Yes it is, Kevin will be hosting this month's event at Luciano's Ristorante on South Boulevard. Appetizers will also be provided, so come ready to eat and socialize with all the other bloggers! 

Last night, Alyssa, Caitlin and I had a girls wine night at The Wine Loft. If you are a wine fanatic, then this place is for you! With a menu that offers over 40 wines by the glass and over 100 by the bottle, you can't help but sit back, relax and unwind in this upscale atmosphere. Think of a wine bar that is filled with leather cozy couches, dimmed lights, candles lit at every table and jazz-like music playing in the background.That's exactly what The Wine Loft entails. And did I mention the dessert? Caitlin and I split the Raspberry Creme Brulee Cheesecake that was so delicious! I highly recommend this place for a girls night or even a date if your significant other is up for it!    
The Liebster Award! Y'all this is probably one of my favorite awards floating around the blog community. Back in October of last year, I was nominated for the award by my sweet blog friend Becky and I wrote a blog post about it here. Just recently, I was nominated AGAIN by two of my favorite fashion bloggers Mary-Katherine and Emily and couldn't have been more excited and giddy!! Check back next Tuesday for a combined post answering the questions that MK and Emily had for me. And seriously, how gorgeous are these girls?  
The Bachelor and The Carrie Diaries are just two shows that I have been watching lately. I haven't had much time to watch TV, but these two shows I don't want to miss, especially since they both are on their new seasons! As for movies, I really want to go see Saving Mr Banks and About Time. What TV shows and movies are you excited to watch/see? Any recommendations for things I should check out? 

One of my resolutions was to start a bible reading plan that I would do the whole year of 2014. I told myself that starting January I would read the bible in it's entirety starting with Genesis and working my way through Revelations. I have never done this before, and know it will be a challenge and will require me reading the Bible almost every night. But I found this reading plan that I think will be a great resource for me to use and can't wait to update you all on my progress through the year! 

And just a random throw in are these two pictures I remember taking!

  1. I'm so jealous of the Charlotte Bloggers meet ups! We don't have anything like that in Charleston. The Wine Loft sounds awesome! Have a great weekend!

  2. Too bad DC doesn't count as a Charlotte surrounding area!!

  3. Love this! And nothing better than WINE!!! And I love the bachelor so that's a double whammy with this blogger. This is my first time on your blog & consider me a follower. I'm a new blogger & enjoy making friends, so stop by Boarding Together.

  4. Looking forward to the January meet up! And glad you went to the Wine Loft--been dying to try it!

  7. The Wine Loft sounds like my kind of place! If I lived closer, I would definitely have to check it out.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
