Things I’m Loving Friday
We are getting awfully spoiled with all of the great hiking nearby! We recently found a trail north of the city at Lake Norman State Park that follows the lake for five miles and includes tons of little lookouts for hikers to take in the beautiful views. It’s gorgeous and I hope to go back soon!
This app makes creating a movie extremely simple! For my mom’s 60th birthday, I reached out to people she loves most and asked them to text or email me a short video wishing my mom a happy birthday. I added music and pictures and sent the video link to my mom on her birthday last Sunday. It was a huge hit and much easier to make than I anticipated. I highly recommend this app if you are in the market for something that makes video editing relatively simple.
- House Hunting
Since Ryan and I have never looked for a house before, the whole house hunting process is very new to us and I had no idea how addicting it can be! I check Zillow all the time. We’re planning our evening walks in different neighborhoods to get the feel of various areas around Charlotte. We’re talking with our realtor all the time and scheduling appointments to see homes. It’s exciting and incredibly overwhelming all at once.
- Black Cherry Sparkling Water
I bought a bottle of this water at the airport on Monday and thought it was so good! It reminded me of unsweetened Dr. Pepper, and I mean that in a good way!
- Vizsla Pictures on Instagram
Please tell me I’m not the only crazy dog lady out there who searches the hashtags of certain dogs on Instagram and freaks out over all the cute pictures. I love browsing vizsla pictures under the #vizsla or #vizslasofinstagram hashtags because they are all so similar. Ryan and I laugh at Sadie’s ridiculous tendencies all the time, such as her need to be touching us if we’re in the same room, and the vizsla pictures on Instagram make it clear vizslas really do deserve the “velcro dog” nickname. Plus the vizsla puppy pictures absolutely melt my heart.
- Scharffen Burger Milk Chocolate with Toasted Coconut and Macadamia Nuts
This bar was in a goodie bag I received from Hershey and after one bite, I knew it was going to be hard not to eat the entire thing in one sitting. It’s creamy, slightly crunchy from the macadamia nuts, sweet and absolutely delicious.
