Another Adventure & How Time Flies By

This week is flying past. Sunday was Mother’s day and this was the 2nd year without my Mom. All holidays are hard to get through, but I’m finding that I focus on having fun on Holidays helps me get through the day. This Mother’s day was like no other Adventure Sunday for us. We stopped by my parents grave then went onward to have a fun filled evening in Charlotte. We went to a few places around Pineville and Charlotte and ended up in Uptown Charlotte at Trader Joe’s picking up a few things and then heading off to our new favorite French Bakery Amelies’s in NoDa for another late night snack. T had the Portabella Mushroom & leek Tartines and I had a buttered croissant. I also got one of their gourmet cherry sodas. The food and soda was excellent. Before that night I had never heard of Sprecher sodas, but after doing some research they are a local brewery in WI and they also make a wide selection of sodas and beers. Just wish they had a local retailer that sold their sodas in NC. Love to ditch “regular” sodas for those. A lot better than traditional sodas as well them not having any caffeine either.

All and all we had a great time and can’t wait till this Sunday’s adventure night.

Adventure Weekends

I’m having a great week so far, but the weekend was pretty adventurous. On Sunday,Tracy and I went as usual to her dad’s house for supper. After dinner instead of heading home we decided to head to a few places in SC then got an idea to go to Charlotte to go to a few places too. Before we left Charlotte, we wanted to stopped by Amelie’s to have a late night dessert., since they are now open 24/7. I had heard a lot of good things about the French bakery and wanted to try some of their pastries. We got the Apple and Blueberry turnovers, which were really good. We both really want to go back next time we’re in Charlotte to try some of their soups or sandwiches.

Most all of the places that I knew of that stayed open late or even 24/7 are no longer in business, so it’s nice to find another place that does. So many times we have been to Charlotte for events( concerts, musicals, movies, etc) that got out late ( after 10pm) and knew of no place around that was still open to grab a snack or a place that served gourmet types of coffees either. So I’m glad to find something that is open late nights in Charlotte again.

All and All we had a great evening, we got home pretty late, but had lots of fun. I always enjoy our Sunday adventures.
