Chapel Thrill

15 Mar

Last weekend I had the loveliest time with my dear friend Lindsay in Chapel Hill, NC. We trampolined, hung out with her fun philosophy friends (which included late nights and lots of laughs), cheered on the Tar Heels and met the sweetest dog Silke.

A mini vacation was exactly what I needed. I couldn’t get enough of the beautiful sunshine, patio-worthy weather and time with one of my favorite people in the whole world. I felt more relaxed this week and ready to take on the rest of winter. But please come soon spring.

Happy birthday bff

6 Feb

Sometimes people are destined to find each other. When I was in kindergarten, I met Erika. I don’t remember exactly how our friendship started, but it’s pretty clear we were meant to be friends. We grew up on the same road and are exactly six months apart – destiny, right? I guess we’ll never know for sure, but I know I’m lucky to have her in my life.

So happy birthday Erika! (And happy half birthday to me!)

Life just wouldn’t be the same without you in it.

The peppiest kids around

8 May

This past weekend I headed to Chapel Hill to visit one of my dearest friends, Lindsay. She’s attending UNC for her PhD in philosophy. We met as young kids at 4-H camp, and we’ve remained close ever since. Lindsay is one of those friends I don’t see all that often, but when we do, it’s like we’ve never spent a day apart.

This weekend was no different. We found ourselves on several unplanned adventures, which always ended with plenty of laughter. I arrived Thursday evening and we began exploring Chapel Thrill (as Lindsay calls it). After some froyo at Sweet Frog, we made an impromptu decision to attend an amateur comedy show. Although there were several free drinks involved, the comedy was mediocre at best. We did die laughing when one of the amateurs decided to read William Wallace’s freedom speech from Braveheart in a horrible Scottish accent. It was amazing.

I had to work on Friday and Lindsay still had some talks to attend. We were able to get away for a bagel break and a walk through the Coker Arboretum to soak up the gorgeous day. Later that night we went for dinner at Top of the Hill and then met up with some of her philosophy friends at this great wine bar, Peccadillo. If you’re visiting Chapel Hill, and can find it, I highly recommend it. The evening turned into morning and we finally went to bed at 6 a.m.

Saturday was a sleepy day, and we finally made it out the door by late afternoon. We went for lunch at Buns and then made our way toward Carrboro, stopping at little shops along the way. Unfortunately, we were caught in the rain and headed back to Chapel Hill. With the weather not cooperating, we decided a night in would be a good idea. We made pasta, used facial masks and watched one of our favorite movies, Mean Girls.

We finally made it to Carrboro on Sunday for a fantastic lunch at The Spotted Dog where I ate the best quesadilla of my life. And then it was time for me to head home. The weekend went by fast, but we had such a fun time together. I’m already looking forward to my next visit.

Thanks for a wonderful weekend, Lindsay! xoxo
