CKC Charlotte

Wednesday, August 21, 2013


I'm back from an unintentional week-long blog vacation. There's been so much going on that I haven't had a chance to post. I'm back on track now. :)

Mom and I went to the CKC show in Charlotte last weekend and had so much fun! It was our first time going to Charlotte, and I can't wait to bring Joe back. He will love it! Mom and I went to 3 classes. I'll be showing projects from those classes in future posts.

This is the first sign we saw as we were walking into the convention center:


A nice lady offered to take our picture in front of another sign!


I won a doorprize in one of our classes.


The Hilton Charlotte was the perfect location for us. It was right beside the convention center and within walking distance to shops and restaurants.


Our view from the 18th floor:


Super cool name tag ;)


Fantastic fresh guacamole at Vida Cantina. We sat outside and had an amazing time people watching!


Fantastic enchiladas (and a blood orange margarita - yum!)


Our hotel as we were walking back after dinner:


Mom in a giant chair in the hotel:


Complicated elevator options:

Did you go to a CKC show this year? I can't wait till next year!

I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!
