A new venture, exhaust pipes, and awkward poses.

32 Flavors Boutique

32 Flavors Boutique has moved and I am going with them!!  Michaella and Ann moved 32 Flavors from Huntersville, NC to Charlotte, NC into a beautiful old house with lots of space!  Enough space that they offered me a little corner of my own!  Can I just tell you how excited I am to be a part of this amazing boutique!!!  I’m over the moon!  The location is awesome, right on East Blvd. and the house is so cool!  Wood floors, fireplaces, even a room totally devoted to art classes!!

  So I loaded up the truck, Yep I might have accidentally traded in the old mini van in for a truck!!!  A big ole black truck that is!  I have alwaysssss wanted a truck ever since I was a little girl.  The one I dreamed about had giant tires, exhaust side pipes, and big KC lights on top.   First of all why is a little girl dreaming about exhaust pipes!?!?!  This truck is not all red-necked out YET, but I’m working on it!  My mom was concerned when I first bought the truck.  She was worried that there wouldn’t be enough room for my kids and all their friends.  My plan is working…insert evil laugh here.

I loaded up the bed (that’s truck talk) and headed into Charlotte!  The boutique is about 20 minutes from my house.  I had to get over my fear of the Charlotte roads, traffic, and all those lanes, but now that I have made the drive a couple of times, I feel like such a big girl driving around in the city!  This momma will take an empty country road over 4 lanes of bumper to bumper crazy drivers any day of the week.  I think I’ve only flipped a couple of people off.  I kid.

Meet Michaella Dalton, owner of 32 Flavors Boutique.  I totallllllllly admire this girl.  She’s younger than I am but knows nothing about fear.  She just decides what she wants to do and does it.  I am inspired by her I can do anything I set my mind to attitude.  When I grow up I want to own my own boutique too.  I hope some of Michaella’s no fear in going after her dreams will rub off on me.  I just love being around her.

This is Ann Silosky, the other owner of 32 Flavors.  This girl just cracks me up!  She is one of those people that if you hang out with too long your cheeks and stomach hurt from laughing so much.  Such a positive, uplifting, happy person who brings so much light to the boutique.  And did I mention she is the most amazing jewelry artist!?  I promise to go back now that the boutique is open and all beautiful and takes lots of photos.  I will be sure to include Ann’s amazing works of art.  If you can’t wait for my photos and want to see her work you can find her at Silosky’s Jewels on Facebook.  I would add a link but I took the plunge and am no longer on Facebook.  It’s amazing all the extra time I have on my hands now!!!  I have no friends but lots of time!

    Wow, girl! Is it just me or have you been in the sun?! That pic makes you look super tan, lol.
    Congrats on the new venture. Your space looks great.
    I too, want a bigger car but my husband just doesn’t get that when I see good stuff on the side of the road it’s hard to fit it into a Dodge Neon and only so much will fit on the roof! Lol.
    I also hate driving in Charlotte.

      We went on vacation for spring break so that would explain the extra color!!! I need to be better about sunscreen!!! Yeah boo to Charlotte roads. My worst nightmare is getting a job downtown and having to commute everyday!! I’m not the best driver in the world. I’ve been known to take out a few mailboxes when hitting yard sales!! Hahaha

    Hi Angela! Are those baby hair accessories on the bottom of the shelf?

    • angela April 27, 2013 at 9:58 am #

      Hey Amanda! How are you!?!? They are yo-yo headbands. They are the normal elastic headbands that you can get at Target. They fit my head so not sure if they would fit a baby’s head or not. Buttttttttttt that is a great idea! I need to look into that! Thanks for the idea!

      Hi Mindy!
      Wow you love driving here!?!?! Can you answer a question that I have neverrrrrrrrrrrr understood about Charlotte!?!? Why do all the roads change names!?!? You can be on one road and then next thing you know you are on another road and didn’t even make a turn!!!! I do love Charlotte though! Great place to live!
      love
      Angela

        Ha Ha – yes, my parents figured any city would be easier to navigate than Charlotte so it was a great place to learn to drive…..

    Angela, that is so great! The boutique looks awesome. I wish you oodles of success there! I know what you mean about driving downtown. Before kids, I worked in that tall BofA building. The drive was nerve wrecking! Enjoy your new adventure! Congrats. – Laurie

    Totally drooling on my iPhone! And the mental picture of you with your nicely-tanned middle finger hanging out the truck window made me laugh so that my menfolk wondered what was funny!

    ANNNNGGEELLLLLAAAAA!!!!! you are one crazy girl. New space looks awesome and I just know you’re going to kill it in Charlotte. I stopped by Buttonbird blog because I just realized I hadn’t seen any FB notifications in a while. should have known you were up to something great!

    • angela April 27, 2013 at 10:01 am #

      Hey girl!!! Heard you were killing it at Blacklion! That is so awesome! I actually went off Facebook. Kinda like blog suicide but I just am not a computer person and social media is a little overwhelming for me. I miss being on facebook but I feel like it was the right move going off. I feel a little more free, if that makes any sense. I am a strange bird sometimes, actually most of the time! hahahaha! I’m super excited about 32 Flavors! Not sure if you are interested in teaching classes but she is looking for people!
      love you lots my creative amazing friend!
