Today was a good day. The Husband and I took Mom on a tour of Charlotte and the surrounding towns. Weâ€™re nearly back on the house-huntinâ€™ bandwagon (we had a failed attempt this summer) and are beginning to consider properties a little farther away than my beloved â€˜coolâ€™ part of town. So we drove south and north and all around.
And then we ended up at The Liberty for lunch. Itâ€™s a awesomely decorated gastropub.
We started off with a bucket of the parmesan salted fries for an appetizer. Most unfortunately, the bucket had a false bottom. Not entirely filled with fries!
I had the tomato soup (topped with cheddar popcorn â€“ very cute) and salad.
One of the tiny towns we traveled to was Davidson, which has a quaint Main Street. I tried to keep an open mind, but I must admit that itâ€™d hard for me to accept that we might be moving to the â€˜burbs. Trouble with living in the city is that itâ€™s taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad (okay, a lot) out of our price range for anything that doesnâ€™t need major renos. And neither us are very handy.
Coffee break to discuss our options:
And when we got home, Lunch #2 (brown rice, peppers, kidney and chickpeas with some crumbled tortilla chips and sour cream).
So â€“ my friends. I asked youâ€¦ City or Suburbs? Is location your biggest priority or would you rather live in a nice, new house?
