Every year I have to go to Charlotte, NC for a MRI on my back. While we are there, I always try to find a new restaurant to try out. My Appointment time was earlier this year, so when we got finished it was not breakfast time and not quite dinner time either. At any rate, since we was in between we decided to grab some brunch! We found a cool little place right in the middle of Uptown Charlotte called The Midnight Diner. I absolutely love these old diners cars and we just had to try it out.

Unicoi Preserves | Product Review

Unicoi Preserves is a small batch mountain grown goodness fruit spread

Back in the summer of 2014, our family took our yearly vacation in Helen, Georgia. While there, we visited a state park called Unicoi State Park. Meanwhile, I had just gotten over back surgery and was told to do lots of walking. There was a waterfall that we wanted to see that was a moderate hike to get to. It was a great accomplishment for me and since then that park has a special place in my heart. Fast forward to this year, I came across a company with the same name as the park.

Captain Steve’s Family Seafood Restaurant | Fort Mill, SC

Captain Steve’s Family Seafood where you will want to split a small plate

Back in the 1800’s, men would go fishing to provide food for their family. They would camp out along the banks of the river and sit and catch fish.

The Loose Moose Cottage Concord NC

Great Wolf Lodge Concord, NC

Fancy buffet dining inside Great Wolf Lodge at The Loose Moose Cottage

I have, to be honest with you, I am not a big fan of buffets. Especially the franchise restaurants you go to like Golden Corral and Ryan’s, yeah not a fan of those. Most of the time the food is bland, and taste like it all came out of a can. What I am a fan of, though, is buffets at little country restaurants. The quality is better and the place is usually cleaner. Now on a recent overnight stay at Great Wolf Lodge (Click link for that post) in Concord, NC, we ate at a buffet restaurant. This is the review of The Loose Moose Cottage in Concord, NC. Continue reading “The Loose Moose Cottage Concord NC”
