Weekend Ramblings

Our weekend was a great mix of lazy and fun. Friday, A. drove six hours home from Alabama to Charlotte, so a low key night was in order - movie night at home. Saturday we had a lazy morning and then stopped by the Sleepy Poet Antique Mall. We had fun strolling through Sleepy Poet for awhile and checking out all their wares. We left empty handed, but can imagine that once we're in a house we'll be back for some things. There were a bunch of really old bottles and art which I can picture adorning our walls and shelves in the future.

After Sleepy Poet we made our way to the Farmer's Market and picked up some produce for the week (for a whopping total of $3.91 for 4 things!) And then stopped by the greenery shed on the way out. I ended up picking up two gorgeous succulent plants:

Eek! I love them both. The prices at the Farmer's Market greenery shed seriously cannot be beat. The booth we stopped at was selling small succulents for $1 a piece or 4/$5. I went the easier way and bought these two pre-made arrangements for a total of $25. I've seen similar frame arrangements going for $75-100 online and at other shops, so these were a steal. They also had a great selection of Meyer Lemon trees - we had one in Texas that yielded us a few lemons a few years ago, and would love to get another.

Saturday night the weather was amazing - so we sought out a patio for dinner - eating at Ice House in South End, and then coming home and enjoying a bottle of wine on the rooftop terrace at our apartment. The Duke Energy building in Uptown was all lit up in rainbow lights for Charlotte Pride. I love this view from the roof of our building (but that tree on the left needs a little trim!)

Sunday was pretty lazy - we went to lunch, ran some errands, went grocery shopping, and then watched the VMAs. It was all worth it to see A's face during Lady Gaga's performance (and Miley Cyrus, but anyone who was surprised by that hasn't seen her We Can't Stop video - it was pretty much the same level of ridiculousness.)

We've got a busy week leading up to the holiday weekend - and then the wedding of some close friends this weekend to look forward to!
