Favorite places to eat: I love Osso (1000 NC Music Factory Blvd.). Cowfish (4310 Sharon Road) is one of my favorites; I eat there on an almost daily basis its kind of embarrassing. My daughters favorite is Nothing But Noodles. I love Amelies. The salted caramel brownie makes me want to cry its so good.
Favorite bar: Im not a super going-out, bar-kind-of girl. But I like more chill places places with live music. Leroy Fox (705 S. Sharon Amity Road) right down the street from my house is really cool.
Favorite place to take her daughter: She loves Dish It Out, the place where you can go to paint pottery. Were there a lot. I have a lot of painted bunny rabbits and glass figurines around my house. We love Monkey Joes. And theres a place down next to Carowinds called Plaza Fiesta (3700 Avenue of the Carolinas, Fort Mill, S.C.).
Favorite place to shop: I love chezElle (532 Governor Morrison St.) over at Morrison. Theres a jewelry line here in Charlotte called Towne & Reese that I love. SouthPark mall obviously. All those shops over at Morrison I really like. Poole Shop (4010 Sharon Road).
Favorite h obbies: I havent been working a full-time job, but I teach a jewelry class at a middle school here in Charlotte and do different things through my church. Ive been taking photography classes and trying to learn to cook, just trying to figure out where my passions lie.
