Weekend In Review

This weekend my parents were in town for a visit. When they come in, the weekend usually involves food, shopping, movies and laughs. This visit was no different.
They arrived Friday evening and after getting settled we set out for dinner. I have a new obsession with this place called Bad Daddy's. They have this burger it's called The Frenchie. It is a turkey burger, with brie cheese, applewood smoked bacon, sliced apples and garlic mayo. I get it without the mayo but oh my it is super delicious. After dinner we came back to my apartment, chatted for a bit and then went to bed.
Saturday was just an easy day. We slept in, I made French toast for everyone and then we got ready for the day. We went shopping, where I helped my dad pick out new tennis shoes and Teresa a new pair of skinny jeans. Then I took them to World Market, basically the best place ever. Have you ever been? If not, please promise you will go, it has so many unique and fun things. Teresa and I picked up a few things.

This tray and those trinkets together are going to help build my new bedroom. I have wanted to redesign my bedroom for awhile and I have this issue where when I want something done I want it then and there not in a few months or a year, but RIGHT THEN. I realize that isn't going to happen so instead I am embracing the piece by piece method. I am going to start collecting new items for my room and switching them out until I have a completed oasis.
After shopping we watched Crazy, Stupid, Love (who doesn't want to see Ryan Gosling shirtless) and then headed to dinner at Luisa's Brickoven Pizza. It was super delicious and I literally cleaned my plate. We went back home, watch some of the Olympics and then went to bed.
Sunday was quick, up and ready and off to brunch at 5Church. They seriously have the best omelets. After brunch we headed back and they left on their four hour trip home. I spent my afternoon with Thomas and Katy playing disc golf, where I accidentally got hit in the face and after a few tears I laughed it off. My weekend was a good mixture of food, fun and laughter. So lucky to have such awesome friends and family.

Who Wears Short Shorts?


I admit that my love for cold weather is not the normal. I am always the first to celebrate the first frost of the fall/winter season, squeal with excitement when layers are no longer a want to wear but a need to wear and snow is actually in the forecast, BUT I do love a good spring time forecast of shorts and sweaters. I don't know why but this might be my favorite outfit of choice, well, behind leggings and oversized sweaters of course.
So in honor of the impending warmer weather and the brief stint I will get of shorts and sweaters, here is a few of my favorite looks.

So with Spring time just around the corner, it looks like I may need to update my wardrobe with some fun and light weight sweaters along with fun prints and solid colored shorts. What is your favorite season? Outfit pairing?

Snow Day

After watching everyone I know get showered with snow a few weeks ago, I finally got my fill of the white, fluffy, gorgeous stuff. Wednesday morning it started really coming down and by 11am my office let us go to get home safely. Once home I decided my lunch hour would be spent walking around and taking pictures of the quiet streets of SouthEnd. 

That is a road there....usually chock full of people from morning to night, but the weather made the streets eerily quiet and deserted, a rare sight for SouthEnd Charlotte. 

This was Wednesday's snowfall only an hour or two in. At the end are pictures from today's snowfall that left us around eight or nine inches...more than I imagined but thoroughly happily about it.

The alleyway leading to Common Market. 

I may or may not have made my way to CVS to grab a few necessities. This bottle of wine being one of them. A girl has priorities and this just happens to be one of mine. 

The Panthers stadium from my rooftop. 

Today's final snowfall. It was picturesque and amazing. More snow than I could have asked for and so happily to finally have a snow day or two. 

Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful weekend.
