Whirlwind Weekend

I hope that everyone has had an incredible weekend. My weekend began a bit early when I got into town Thursday afternoon.  Joe and I headed out to drinks to celebrate my return from the Caribbean. We visited Firebirds which is one of my favorite franchise restaurants. It was nice to catch up on the week events over drinks just the two of us. I enjoyed an amazing pineapple martini which took me right back the Caribbean.

On Friday evening, a group of our close friends came into town. We went out to dinner and drinks at one of my favorite local restaurants Tribecca Tavern. The group headed back to our apartment after dinner. The boys started up an intense game of poker while us girls played catch up.

Our little group enjoyed a hearty breakfast Saturday morning at the State Farmers Market Restaurant. They have the best biscuits, grits and hash browns around. Many must agree because it was packed Saturday morning! We were lucky to enjoy a table outside and munched on biscuits with molasses while we waited.

After breakfast we explored the farmers market a bit. I am on the lookout for a Meyer lemon tree and a few small plants for the apartment. Then we headed out to Moorsville for Megan and Robbie’s wedding. 

 Megan and Robbie’s wedding was at a beautiful plantation in Columbus. The wedding ceremony overlooked a small pond surrounded by gorgeous foliage.

Following the ceremony, we enjoyed drinks and appetizers on the patio overlooking the pond. We enjoyed a delicious dinner followed by dancing the night away.

I caught the guys trying to look cool heading back up to the party.

My favorite part of the night was enjoying s’mores on the patio. I loved the fire pit that had been built in to the patio. The fire was fueled by gas logs which I had never seen before! We snuck a few s’mores home to enjoy this week and remember their beautiful wedding. 

Sunday we headed back to Cary to celebrate Christina’s birthday. Her family had arranged to meet us in Cary and surprise her for brunch. I am not very good at being sneaky and trying to hide things. However, the surprise went perfectly. I am so happy it turned out a success and she had no idea they were in town!

We also got to meet Christina's 3 month old nephew for the first time. He woke up just in time to celebrate with us. He very much stole the show for most of lunch. 

I am beyond blessed for a full weekend filled to the brim. Now that we are finally back home, I am enjoying a quiet night with Joe catching up on Game of Thrones. 

Hope you all have a great night!
