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.

Trips and Things

On Saturday we got back from a week long trip to Gatlinburg and It was great getting away.
Since staying downtown we were able to walk to all the shops and restaurants, which was nice and too the last time we were there in Dec. it was too cold to do a lot of walking.

I just wished we lived in a city that we could walk to everything all the time. It would definitely save on how much we use our cars and help out the environment too. One place I always enjoy going to is the “the village”. The village is a small group of shops, that were designed to look like an “old world village”. They remind me of something you would see in Europe. One of my now favorite shops there is Celtic Heritage. Pretty cool shop with a lot of Irish and Scottish gifts from jewelry to artwork to food & music.

All and all had a great time and can’t wait to visit Gatlinburg again soon.
