Summertime Blues

So, you know our lot in life. Cross country move. Beginning of summer. No friends. Husband deploying. Summer is typically our fun time but we are finding ourselves--BORED. Never thought this could happen to us!

When my teenager is in charge, we go shopping. Believe me, I am burned out on that one. When my tweens are in charge, we stay home and they play xbox. When I'm in charge, well, who are we kidding... I'm not in charge :) I try to get us out and about.

We made a quick road trip to Charlotte this weekend. For my daughter's 16th birthday. We went shopping (of course), hit up Dave and Busters (first time ever), and had breakfast at this cute cafe near University of North Carolina Charlotte campus. There is so much to see in that town. I plan to go back without shopping being the main focus. Although, the shopping was pretty awesome.

Our city list for North Carolina is currently Raleigh, Wilmington, and Charlotte. I think that about covers the big ones. There is more exploring to do in each city but so far Raleigh is my favorite. Charlotte isn't bad but it's more metro versus the character of an older city. My opinion could change but this is my initial take on things :) I'll keep you posted!


  1. I love Charlotte!! It's such a pretty place. There is an amusement park there called Carowinds and it's a lot of fun.

  2. I've never been to any of those towns, but I hope to be able to check them out someday! :)

  3. I loved Wilmington!!! Main Street is so cute.
