Busy October

October around here has been crazy busy, my brain can barely focus on one thing at a time! Life has been hectic, but hectic is a good thing these days. My career is heading in a positive direction, I have been meeting new friends, and I am inspired with AWESOME ideas for A Doodle Dose.

This week my mom is visiting! I couldn't be happier to have my partner in crime with me. She is in Charlotte for two weeks and then we head to Virginia to visit my sister, niece and nephews for the weekend. My mom and I have been catching up on some much needed shopping and story telling.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that this past Sunday we took a trip to Hodges Farm. It was a nice little farm. We got some sunflowers and walked around the pumpkin patch. The pumpkin selection wasn't the greatest so we ended up not getting any, but I will be getting a pumpkin or two this week. I have some crafty ideas for them!

Hope you all are enjoying October as much as I am.

On A String: Blogger Meet-Up!

Thursday night I attended my first blogger meet-up with The Charlotte Social. I had such a great time at On A String, I met so many great people. It was fun hanging out getting to know all these great bloggers and chatting about blog tips and tricks!

We each got to make two bangles. I made mine with more neutral colors, so that I could match it to my work clothes. I did love all the fun colors that some of the other girls chose. They all turned out so cute!

Above is a photo of all us bloggers together and below is a shot of our finished bangles!
I can't wait to for our meet up next month, but for now I have a bunch of NEW blogs to follow!

Happy weekend!

Blue Ridge Parkway Adventure (Part Two)

Crabtree Falls!

This was my favorite part of our entire trip! Despite the fact that it was a little rainy we decided to venture down to Crabtree falls. I am so glad we did. We had the entire trail to ourselves! :)

Dusty is so silly!

Blue Ridge Parkway Adventure (Part One)

This weekend Michael and I celebrated our five year anniversary with an adventure along The Blue Ridge Parkway! We had a blast! The fall colors were beautiful.

Dusty came with us of course!!

It was a little spooky with all the fog. We went to the highest elevation on the parkway and Mount Mitchell(which is the highest peak east of the Mississippi River), unfortunately we couldn't see the view with all the fog! Still had fun driving and hiking up to the top though!

I think the best part were all the colorful leaves! Each elevation was a different color. It was just breathtaking! Will share more photos tomorrow!
