Memorial Day is one of those weekends we just LOVE here at Something Perfect. It’s the start of summer and a great weekend to celebrate all of the success of the spring season. While this holiday weekend includes quite a few things for us – a wedding, a staycation and day trips – we can’t wait to celebrate!
Aside from the AMAZING wedding my team has scheduled for Saturday at the Arbors, my best friend from Maryland and her boyfriend are coming to visit for the long weekend! Since their visit last Memorial Day weekend, we have moved to a house on Lake Norman. I am excited to have a new area to explore with them! We can’t wait to explore new breweries, lake front dining, canoeing and hopefully a boat day! Xo, Lauren
Typically when I have a three day weekend, my fiance, Ryan and I take advantage and head to the beach. This year things will be a bit different, as we have just closed on our first home. I’m looking forward to using the extra time off to get as much decorating done as possible before I host my first guests the following weekend! Our schedules have been very hectic lately, so if we get all of that done, I am perfectly content to just have some R & R at home. Xo, Stephanie
Memorial Day weekend is always the official start for summer for me! While June is still a busy wedding month at Something Perfect, it’s the perfect long weekend to celebrate an incredible month of hard work. I am planning a lot of sleeping in, time outside and possibly a little day drinking at some of my favorite breweries around town… with Ryan & Pickles, of course! Xo, Samie
This year, Memorial Day marks a long weekend to celebrate everything both my husband and I have accomplished so far in 2017. For him, a very, very, busy tax season at work, and for me a very busy wedding season! Instead of going on a trip, my parents have asked us to dog sit while they are out of town. Luckily for us this means a stay-cation on Lake Norman! We will be stealing their boat for a few days, sipping wine on the dock, and finding the best brunch spot the lake has to offer. (fingers crossed we don’t forget the sunscreen!) Xo, Abby
Looking for something to do here in the Queen City? Charlotte has a laundry list of fun things to do this weekend, whether your ideal Memorial Day weekend means getting your sweat on, getting your drink on, or get your cruise on! Here are a few ideas:
If you can’t imagine not starting the summer off on the water, head to Fitzgerald’s for transportation to the three hour Lake Norman Memorial Day Cruise including two hours of free beer and wine and free food. Finish off the evening back at Fitzgerald’s for the after party!
