Today was one of those days where we left in the morning and took everything we would need for the rest of the day because we would not get home until dinner time. It's so funny how much those days wear me out.
We started out the morning by taking 20 min. and talking to the CSCL Senior Class about fundraisers for Ireland. Beginning this weekend we are going to be taking Christmas Tree orders. These trees will be Fraser Fir's from the Blue Ridge Mountains and cut 3 days before they are delivered. This could be a GREAT money maker if we get a good amount of orders. There will be trees from 6-9 feet available. If you are local to the Charlotte, NC area and are interested in purchasing a Christmas Tree, please email me. :-)
Also discussed was information about our Music/Art night on December 3rd. This is going to be such a fun evening that TJ and I are heading up along with the students. I will definitely be posting more information about this in the next week.
After meeting with the students, we headed off to photograph two Pubs in Charlotte. Luckily they were only a couple blocks from each other. Before heading over to the second pub, we stopped at Molly MacPherson's Scottish Pub (notice a trend here? ha) for lunch. Last month we had purchased a GROUPON and were very excited to use it today. It was actually our first time using a GROUPON. Worked like a charm!
In between meeting with students and photo shoots, we also made a stop at Landau Guitar Company. TJ has gone there for years because of how amazing the guy, Craig, is at guitar repair. I remember going with TJ back when we were dating (one of these days I will tell our story). Below is a photo of TJ & Jason (aka Buddy) back in the day at Landau Guitar, when TJ and I were just getting to know each other. Wow, I cannot believe this was 4 years ago.
This evening TJ and I went out to eat with my parents. It's always great to spend time with them. We went to Trio, a local American cuisine restaurant. Afterwards we came back to our house and I was able to give my mom some of my Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls.
Tomorrow is going to be very exciting. We are taking our photography class on a field trip to the Light Factory. You can be sure to see a post about it tomorrow. :-)
