Staycation here we come!

So...the Hubs is taking the biggest test of his life today. He is an engineer and today he is taking his Professional Engineer. He has waited 4 1/2 since graduating from college. There are several markers that you have to do before you can take this one and luckily, this will be the LAST 8 hour exam he has to take!! I don't know how he does it! Also, we have had many things going on personally in our lives (that I've been debating on sharing, once we have more news) that we decided several weeks ago to just have a weekend of unwinding and relaxation! My brother and sister in laws are the ones who have turned us on to staycations....I had never heard of them until last year when they did one in Downtown Charleston (jealous!!) and so since then we do these every few months....back in the day when we were in college we would just stroll and bar hop and have the best time together. We often went out in groups, but I knew he was the one when we could just spend the entire night together in a crowded bar and never feel the need involve anyone's to our weekend, and yours!!
I'll most definitely be indulging in some of this........................... We'll be dining here tomorrow night............
Love this place, we went here the Thursday before getting married with our families so this place has some really special memories for us.......

We'll be staying here.................

Cocktail hour here.......
And finishing the night up here on the rooftop bar!!!!
Look at these views!!! The hotel is on Main Street....I love our downtown. They are really doing some major improvements to bring it "back"
Hope you all have a wonderful, cocktail filled weekend!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Wow! Looks like so much fun! I bet it was fun deciding what to wear too. Have a great time!

  2. Ohhhhhh!! Have a GREAT weekend! Enjoy your cocktails!! My hubby is an engineer also, good luck on his exam.

  3. I'll take a white russion with a cherry, center stool at that bar. Gorgeous view!

  4. An EIGHT HOUR exam? Oh my! I hope it all goes well - I'll keep everything crossed for him!

    It goes without saying that I hope you have a wonderful staycation. I sometimes think that the traveling is the most stressful part of a vacation anyway!

  5. I hope you have a great time! I've never thought about a "staycation" - I'm sure are plenty of things we could do in Charlotte that would feel like vacation. Have a drink for me! :)

  6. I hope yall have a great time! PS. When you get back, check out my blog b/c I passed along a blog award to you! ~andrea

  7. Have an awesome staycation! You all deserve it after enduring an 8 hour exam.


what are you observing these days????
