From Florida with Love

My best friend from college and her
boyfriend came to visit this past weekend! From the day she told me she booked
her flight I began preparing the perfect weekend agenda for the 4 of us…

Of course the itinerary included all my
favorite things from restaurants to drinks to activities!

In preparation for their arrival, I left a
printed agenda on their pillow, some fresh tulips, a little gift {that would
later come in handy} and some personalized bottles of water.

In case you are wondering how I created the
water bottle labels, I used a free template {found here}.

May’s gift was a cute knitted ear warmer
headband I purchased from a boutique in Charlotte for our hike.

Upon arrival I served a strawberry champagne
welcome drink which was totally delicious.

After a few drinks we headed to Zink in
South Park for well, more drinks!

We ate dinner next door at one of my
favorite restaurants, The Cowfish {sushi burger bar}.

Saturday morning we ate breakfast then
headed to Crowders Mountain for an enjoyable 4 mile hike.

Charlie sported his Ruffwear hiking boots and jacket for
the hike.

If you’ve been following my blog for
awhile, you may remember that Crowders Mountain was where Matt proposed, so it
was fun to be back at such a special spot.

After our hike we got cleaned up and headed
out for a brewery tour. Our first stop was NoDa Brewing Company where we drank beer
flights and toured the brewery.

Our second stop, Heist Brewery, was only a
few blocks away in an old cotton mill. We loved this place {and their beer}!

For dinner we went to another one of my
favorite restaurants, Cabo Fish Taco, for margaritas and fish tacos! I pretty
much take all of my visitors to this Charlotte staple. 

After dinner we headed back home so the
boys could smoke cigars while May and I crashed on the couch had some
girl time.

May and Justin headed back to Orlando after
breakfast on Sunday. Although the goodbyes were sad, the weekend was so
wonderful and I was so happy to spend some time with my bestie!
