A Downtown Date

Saturday night Hubs and I had plans to go here...


The Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC
(this is a picture I took when I went in December 2008)

For the entire month of December The Library has a live nativity scene, carriage rides, lights, and lots of great Christmas activites. It seemed like everyone else had the same idea as us though. You would not have beleived the lines of cars waiting to even get in the parking lot. It didn't take us long to decide that we were not going to wait. I was upset though cause I really wanted Hub's to see it. If you in or around the Charlotte area in December make it a point to visit the Billy Graham Library. It really is one of the most beautiful places around.



Since we were already in Charlotte (which is only about 30-40 minutes from us) we decided to take our date night downtown.

So pretty at night


One of the many beautiful Christmas trees in Downtown Charlotte.


We ate at one of our favorite downtown resteraunts; Rock Bottoms. It was so yummy and we didn't have to wait long at all which was nice.


Just a little picture of Hubs. See the leftovers he's carrying? Well my sweet man gave them to the homeless guy that was sleeping on the bench close to our car. I think the guy got mad that Hubs woke him up but I still thought it was thoughtful of Hubs.

I've lived in NC for most of my life and have never heard of The Billy Graham Library in Charlotte! I'm a little upset, I'm just finding out about it! Kidding! I'm def interested in going there though. It sounds wonderful! Cute pics!

How fun, even though you didn't go to where you really wanted to. I've always wanted to see Charlotte sometime!

Hey there! Happy Holidays :) Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is super cute, too! I'm your newest follower now :) That live nativity sounds like fun! I would love to see one sometime. In my hometown there is a light-up driving display of carolers and a santa's workshop and lots of fun things, it's a staple there :)

Looks like a fabulous time. I haven't been to Charlotte in forever, but I am thinking we need to go back soon!

I wish I had thought to visit the Billy Graham library when I was visiting the bestie when she lived in Charlotte.

Sounds like a fun date night! Thank you so much for the comment earlier! I actually bought that rug at a local cleaners in my hometown. It was really cheap too!
