After we were filled with food we walked around & went into several shops.
We stopped in a vintage shop & another shop that sold a variety of items from many different cultures. They both were pretty awesome. I regret now not buying some handmade musical instruments from the second shop I mentioned. My favorite was a wooden frog that came with a small mallet you used to rub up & down its back. Grayson would have loved it. I have no idea why I didn't go ahead & buy it. One day I'm going back.
We were getting hungry so we went to Intermezzo Pizzeria for lunch. The service was extremely slow but we were having a great time chatting. It was great to sit & really talk. The conversation just flowed & it felt like we always get together for lunch.
Stef as pretty as always. ;)
Our yummy food.
After we ate we went across the street to the Salvation Army. We tested out some couches. :) We found one that we all really liked. If it had a love seat I would have bought it! I dream about having matching furniture. haha
Stef & her lovely south western shirt.
Melody found one too. haha
One of our first pictures of the three of us. I set my self timer & sat my camera on the shelf. A little out of focus but still cute.
We headed to another shop. It was so cute. So many things I would have loved to buy if I had the money. Oh well, we had a lot of fun looking through everything. I think we had the most fun when we found a bunch of hats. I pretty much laughed so hard I cried. I tend to do that. When I start I can't stop. Many can vouch to that.
So there's a chicken on my head.
Damsel in distress!
Ooo I saw me a leprechaun!
The three Amigas.
Oh no its attacking Melody!
I love this canvas. I also love how it looks with Melody holding it.
Before we left Charlotte, we stopped at Central Coffee. Had some yummy coffee and chatted for a while longer. It was so hard to part ways. Before we left we took a couple of pictures.
We had to take a silly one. I really should have made a different face. haha
It was awesome meeting Stef! She is super sweet & so incredibly funny. Her passion for the Lord is very admirable. I enjoyed hearing her talking about Him. We had a fantastic time! However, it went way too fast. We're already talking about meeting up again in September. It would be great if we can plan something else in between now & then.
Sunday consisted of a wonderful church service, lunch a Milanos, a knitting session, and sad goodbyes as Melody had to go home. I enjoyed our time together so much. It also went way too fast. We took a few pictures before she headed out.
Such a lovely weekend.
