Get Out in June

Good morning! So…we found out yesterday that we officially have RENTERS for our house!! We’ve been unable to sell it so this is the next best thing and even better is that it’s not just some random person, we know the couple and they are super cool! So things just got really crazy, really quickly…we have to be out of our house by the end of June and into something new no later than July 1.

I’m on the search for something amazing in Uptown Charlotte or the immediate surrounding areas. I don’t want to just settle for the ho-hum house or apartment, I want it to have some character and to be in a relatively active/safe neighborhood. With three weeks before we need to be out, I’m hoping that is actually possible though.

So the school I work out gets out next Friday and Jay and I are staying local and low key this summer as far as vacations go. I might be heading to NYC again with Jay in July but with the house craziness now, that probably won’t be possible. So low key and local, here are some fun things in and around Charlotte to do this summer:

POPS in the Park
Mourning the past of free admission, this year’s POPS concerts are $10/adult (kids are free) which is kinda pricey BUT you can get a pass for $25 for all the concerts (5 in all) and that’s not too shabby…musicians gotta eat too:)

I think that might be one of my longest posts to date, but there are so many cool things going on in our city (which I used to think was pretty lame…jury is still out) but I hope to do all or most of these this summer…will you join me?!
