Kicking Off Summer Break

Life The Working World

And just like that another school year is complete! I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t even had time to think about summer. But now it’s here and I have 10 weeks off with my sweet girl! Matt’s parents were visiting last weekend and we did a lot of eating around town. We finally made it to Pecan Lodge after living in Dallas for 4 years! The meat lived up to the hype. Although, we skipped the main line by…

Grammie & Pop in Town

Uncategorized

Hello! We had a fabulous weekend over here! My parents stopped in Dallas for a quick visit on their way back from Cabo. Matt, unfortunately, got stuck working in New York on Thursday and Friday, so it was nice to have some company. Thursday night, we strolled to the local pub and then I made an easy dinner with WF thai shrimp burgers. On Friday, my mom and I enjoyed our favorite pastime – the mall:) Emerson got a bunch…

In-Law Long Weekend

Uncategorized

Hello!  I’m sitting at the airport on my way to Matt’s college reunion, waiting on a two hour delay:( I’m officially finished with the 15-16 school year though! Woohoo! Last weekend, Matt’s parents came to visit and we had a fabulous time!  We cooked for them on Friday, and then I took Matt’s mom to the gym on Saturday.  I haven’t felt that great doing yoga lately, so I did some lifting while Candace went to a vinyasa class. And…

Reliving the 90’s

Clothing

I had a blast last weekend celebrating my friend Liz’s 30th! It’s such a fun year of big birthday parties. A bunch of friends flew in for the occasion, and after a mimosa brunch on Saturday, we got blow-outs in preparation for the event. The theme was 90’s, and this is what my stylist came up with. Apparently, it was inspired by Married With Children, which I’ve actually never seen. Afterwards, we ended up going next door to grab drinks…

A Night In, A Night Out

Uncategorized

As is tradition on Thursday nights, I’m just getting around to posting about last weekend. It was a nice weekend, but one of those where you have no idea where the time went. Friday, we stayed in and I made a giant lasagna to go with a lovely wine that we brought home from Sonoma. This is the first bottle we’ve had since the trip, and I’m already sad that one is gone. I’m one of those wine hoarders who…

Weekend of Hosting

Cooking Durham Restaurants

We had too much fun this weekend! Matt’s sister came to visit and we had all kinds of good eats and drinks. Friday, we made homemade margs – one of my favorite things since we bought really good tequila over the summer – and then we walked to Victor Tangos. I can never get enough of that place. There’s an energetic vibe, the cocktails are creative and ever-changing, and the food is fun. I had a drink made with house-made…

Weekend of Friends

Uncategorized

Two of our good friends were in town visiting family this weekend, so we spent Saturday night on the town! Matt and I made a pizza and just took it easy on Friday night in preparation. I haven’t felt that rested on a Saturday morning in a long time! When our friends Lauren and Evan arrived, we immediately took them to our favorite taco joint, Urban Taco! I ordered my usual tacos and we also got the avocado ceviche, which…

The Blind Butcher and Betty Who

Weekend Recap

This weekend was such a good one, filled with food and other festivities! Friday, Matt and I tried a new neighborhood eatery called The Blind Butcher. The atmosphere (upscale pub/speakeasy), service, and food were fantastic. And we were quite pleased when the bill came to $40! A mint julep and the soon-to-be famous pretzel bread with mustard to start: We ordered the pastrami egg roll appetizer, which was my favorite item of the night. It was crispy on the outside…

Rustic Beer Saturday & Sundown on Sunday

Cooking

Pizza and wine is becoming a Friday favorite! We opened a local bottle that we received from a friend. It was light and spicy. I threw together a pizza with leftovers from our pineapple crockpot chicken along with sheep’s manchego, spicy bbq sauce, and cilantro. Pizza is always good. And we watched Rent because I had never seen it! I was impressed Matt knew many of the songs:) Saturday we hit up bootcamp and made a hearty lunch in preparation…
