Happy Friday!  I'm luckily working from my parent's beach house today! I don't know about y'all, but I'm so ready for the 4th of July-I'm taking the whole week off and will be parked at the beach.  I need a legit vacay to reset myself.  Work has been super busy and life has been super busy, so I need a timeout.  I'm currently planning all the red, white and blue things I have to pack and the decorations we need to have for the beach house.  Does anyone else just obsess about the 4th of July?!?!  It's one of my favorite holidays!

Does anyone have any fun plans this weekend?  I for one am just going to hang out and maybe read a book.  I'll probably be reading a book while the new Mumford and Son's EP plays.  Their song, "Wona" is one of my new favorite songs.  Have a fabulous weekend!

With Love, Magen

Happy Friday friends! I don't know about y'all, but this has been the LONGEST week ever, talk about slow as a snail!  I'm meeting my work squad for drinks and then meeting up with my friend Erin for a last minute concert tonight-pretty clutch Friday night if you ask me!  

Is everyone ready for Father's Day?  I have my gifts, but need to wrap them before going to Greensboro on Sunday.  We're having a big cookout at my grandparent's farm and then I guess I'll celebrate big Mike with dinner, since he's playing golf (hey-it is Father's Day, do what makes you happy)!   I hope everyone has a great weekend! Mumford and Son's EP came out today and I'm digging the songs!  Make sure to check it out!

I'm also loving Jason Aldean's new song, "Light's Come On" it's a cool behind the scenes video that talks about how grateful he is for the fans.  Pretty great song too, check it out below!

Last Thursday, my work squad and I hit up Kindred in Davidson.  Ranked one of the top restaurants in the country, we had to try it out!  It did not disappoint, even getting stuck in rush hour traffic didn't dampen our spirits.  It's a forever changing menu with amazing choices.  Our faves were the gnocchi with rabbit, cheese plate, duck fat potatoes and the cinnamon bun.  The milk bread, they bring to the table was also on another level.  It's worth the drive from Charlotte to experience this amazing restaurant in the heart of downtown Davidson!

Yesterday, I volunteered with Habitat for Humanity through work.  It was an amazing experience and I can now say that I have the new skill of cutting and hanging dry wall.  You never know when that little skill will come handy :)

This Saturday, I'm headed to Raleigh to celebrate my besties baby's first birthday.  I'm so excited to celebrate Miss. Hayes and to hang out with friends.

I will definitely be listening to Clare Dunn on my trip to Raleigh.  She just kills it on every song on her EP.  I can't wait for her to release a full album!  Her song, "Tuxedo" is my current fave, enjoy!!

City Lights

Last Wednesday, my friend Erin invited me to the soft opening of the largest rooftop bar in Charlotte- City Lights located on top of the Le Meridien hotel.  We were greeted with champagne with a King of Pop popsicle.  It was a great view of the city, we'll see how this spot pans out!

Memorial Day Weekend

Clearly last week entailed a lot of catching up and no time for blogging.  Memorial Day weekend was amazing, we lucked out with the weather and shared fun times with family and friends!  Cheers to having a great week!
