I’ve been pretty quiet over here finishing up the trip to Charlotte, driving home all day Saturday and then a busy Sunday with church and football.
We had a productive time in Charlotte, but not as productive as we had hoped.
One thing I loved about staying at our hotel in Charlotte was the fact that it felt like a mini-apartment and included a kitchenette.
It was a huge help to be able to cook delicious dinners. We saved a ton of money and only ate out once.
We used one jar of sauce to make delicious gnocchi from Trader Joe’s and sausage with peppers and reused some shredded parmesan cheese. We also made sandwiches for lunch everyday using delicious asiago cheese bread. Oh man, so SO good. I can’t wait for TJ’s to be a regular shopping staple.
The people at our hotel were SO nice! It was such a pleasure. We also had free breakfast every morning, which helped our budget a ton.
I heart Caitlin.
There’s a reason why she comes here a lot, this place is incredible! Adam got a bento box that included edamame, sushi, a slider burger and sweet potato fries. The food was delicious and really not over-priced. This will definitely be a regular spot for Adam & I. I’m literally making a list. We also found our cupcake place. Important research went on during this trip, I tell you.
While we LOVED going out to eat this night. It definitely felt amazing to feel “normal” and not eat out every single meal.
It’s honestly getting more and more difficult to leave. Home is where the heart is and my heart is more and more in Charlotte. Not much luck yet on the job front, although thanks to suggestions from the husband and friends I now have a project that I am working on which will hopefully work for me as a job for a while. Fingers crossed!
Have you ever moved to another state as an adult? What was your experience like? It seems to be super tough during this economy to get a job, especially when it’s in another state!
I’m still looking on the bright side of things and I’m excited for new projects. Trusting in God’s timing and not my own is difficult, but for me it’s totally worth it.
