Weekend Recap: Blogger Meetup Edition

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I know I sure did! I spent the weekend with three amazing bloggers, Jamie from Southern Simplicity, Rachel from Just Peachy, and Bre from Basically Bre! Jamie and Rachel came to Charlotte to visit me and Bre for a weekend of blogger fun! We had all been anxiously looking forward to meeting each other so we were glad the weekend had finally arrived!

The ladies got into town on Friday night and we instantly all hit it off! Which is a good thing considering we were spending the entire weekend together!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ We spent the first hour laughing, chatting, and talking about everything under the sun it seemed! We showed them a fun time in uptown Charlotte and shut the bar down at 2 a.m. It was fun getting to talk, drink, dance, and laugh so much with each other! And yes, this resulted in extremely hurt feetย (hello sandals for the rest of the weekend!)


Saturday was such a fun day with all of us! We started the day off at Petal Boutique, a local favorite, and they were having a great sale! All of us played dress up and ended up with some cute new clothes! We ate lunch at 131 Main and it was a delicious, much needed meal! (And yes, we all four ordered the exact same thing….meant to be friends!) We tried to show them a few different areas of Charlotte so after lunch we took them around the Plaza Midwood area for rooftop drinks and fun! Saturday night we got dinner outdoors in South End and had a great last night together!




It wouldn’t be a complete blogger weekend in Charlotte without taking them to the rooftop where Bre and I do our outfit photos! We got to take some pictures together and laugh ridiculously over our attempts at a vlog!


It was so much fun meeting Jamie and Rachel this weekend! I look forward to many more blogger meet ups with them soon!
