A Southern Twenty-Five on Friday: All Things Charlotte

I haven't been this excited about a weekend in Charlotte since... well, ever.

It's the end of tax season {HOORAY!}, so Patrick and I are taking a long three day weekend {anybody sensing a theme here lately?} in the Queen City and doing all sorts of Charlotte activities. I'm determined to squeeze in as many as possible so I hope that the weather cooperates.

See something missing from my list that you think we should be doing this weekend? Let me know!

Having a Friday off and staying in Charlotte can only mean one thing: morning trip to my favorite little farmer's market!

Friday + Charlotte also equals Food Truck Friday.

Hello, Papi Queso, I'm coming for you.

Would it be the weekend if I didn't visit a brewery or two? Nope. The real question is going to be which brewery will we end up going to?

Unknown? Sycamore? OMB? Sugar Creek? Somewhere in NoDa? Too many choices, y'all.

It's baseball season, so naturally, a Charlotte Knights game is a must. The season just started last week so this will be my first chance to go to a game since last summer. Patrick hasn't been to one so I can't wait to take him to his first game!

And shopping! Or brunching. Or Crowder's Mountain? Or the White Water Center. Oh! Maybe even an afternoon by the pool? Or perhaps a stop by the Super Target to check out the new Lilly collection? Clearly I have entirely too many options and not enough decisiveness. But I am excited to be exploring the city with this guy.


Linking up with AprilChristinaNatasha, & Darcy for another Five on Friday!


  1. Enjoy your weekend...I know you are glad tax season is over! Umm, that grilled queso sandwich looks amazing. I might have to come visit you just to try that out :) xoxo

  2. Farmer’s markets are the best – I love seeing what I’ll find! That whole food truck thing might look even better though! Yes to baseball being back!!

  3. Oh my goodness that has to be just about the most beautiful baseball picture I've ever seen! Love it! Happy Friday!!

  4. Your post makes me miss Charlotte so much! So many fun things to do, but it sounds like you are going to take full advantage. Oh Food Truck Friday, best idea ever. P.S. The sooner peach season gets here the happier I'll be.

  5. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I may try and sneak in a baseball game tonight!!

  6. Charlotte's got it going on! I can't wait for Columbia's new ballfield to be complete and enjoy summer night baseball games!

  7. Sounds like you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you!! Love the Whitewater center! Food trucks, farmers markets, breweries, baseball?? Can it get much better than that?!

  8. Which farmer's market do you visit? Papi Queso is my favorite food truck!
