  • Weekend Recap + First Look at Comida


    Hello, hello! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. Mine was super chill but nice. I stayed in Friday and Saturday night but did get out for dinner with two girlfriends on Sunday at a new restaurant here in Charlotte, Comida. I taught the 4:20 class at the studio and then stayed to take the 6. [...]

  • Dinner at La Canoa at Zoetry Parisio de la Bonita


    During our day trip to scout Zoetry Parisio de la Bonita for an upcoming yoga retreat, we had the opportunity to experience dinner at their AAA four diamond restaurant La Canoa. The restaurant is named for the canoes that are hung from the ceiling. It features a spacious layout with an open kitchen and ocean [...]

  • Dinner at The Ocean Room at The Sanctuary


    During my stay at The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island I had the great fortune to have dinner at The Ocean Room. It's quite a special dining experience. The Ocean Room is Kiawah's upscale steakhouse and it's the only steakhouse in the country to have received Forbes 4 Star and AAA 4 Diamond ratings. What I [...]

  • Charleston Part Two: SNOB, Beach, Poe’s


    This is part two of our fun weekend in Charleston. Catch up on part one here. Saturday night we had dinner reservations at SNOB. Charleston has an incredible restaurant scene and we always struggle with choosing where to eat. We hadn't dined at SNOB in years so we decided to visit again. We arrived a [...]

  • Mile High Peanut Butter Pie


    Happy weekend! Last night  Brandon and I decided to finally use a Groupon we've been holding onto for a while and try Savor. I was looking forward to finally experiencing Savor after reading good reviews and constantly hearing the Twitter-verse talking about how good their food is. I knew it was going to be good [...]

  • Reunited


    We met up with our best friends from law school this weekend in Atlanta. It's the first time that we've all been together since graduation. We've seen each other separately over the last year but this was our first chance to get together as a group. After I finished my long run, we headed Becky [...]

  • Party Time


    First, sorry for the weekend hiatus from blogging but I was in need of a disconnect. This weekend was all about birthday celebrations. My mother in law has a milestone birthday coming up on Wednesday (I will not share the number because I am a sweet daughter in law ;) ) and my sister in [...]

  • Menu Plan – Week of 7/20 and an Ethiopian Feast


    Today has been so relaxing. I had NO PLANS other than a yoga and baking. Ahh...so needed after traveling the last three weekends. One of the benefits of having no plans was being able to menu plan this afternoon! Here's what this week is looking like! Monday Tomato Tarts with Goat Cheese and Basil Salad [...]

  • Adventures in Milledgeville


    Good morning! I'm blogging from my grandmother's screened porch. One of my all-time favorite places to be! :D We were up early yesterday morning to get on the road. I packed a bowl of banana oatmeal for the drive. Which I ended up having to shovel down in about 5 minutes because Brandon stopped for [...]

  • A Slight Delay and Some Relaxation


    Well, we're supposed to be en route to Georgia right now but after a long week and a busy day at work we decided to leave early tomorrow morning instead. We were at the point where we wouldn't arrive at my grandmother's until 11 p.m. and it just wasn't worth it to leave so late. [...]

  • A Needed Break


    Today was my Friday and I have no work responsibilities until next Thursday. I am really excited about this break. It is so needed. I'm finally going to tackle some unfun tasks like figuring out how to file for our first time home buyer's credit, finally getting a NC license plate (I still have Alabama [...]

  • Caving to the Craving


    I tried so hard to resist it. Ignored the media, ignored all of my friends comments on Facebook and Twitter, even ignored my own husband's rave review. Today, there was no stopping this craving. Oh yes. That would be the new Chick-Fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Let's look at it and all its deliciousness a little [...]

  • Birthday Recap and Giveaway Winner


    My birthday was pretty low-key but I felt very loved! Between my friends, family, Facebook, Twitter and the blog I think I got a "happy birthday" every 5 minutes. Nice! There was a common theme to my day yesterday - carbs. At first I felt guilty but then I decided it was my birthday and [...]

  • Our 2nd Anniversary Recap


    Tuesday was our second anniversary. Two years ago we were married in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina at Alhambra Hall. And because it's fun to look at wedding pictures for all the special memories, I'm sharing a few with you! We lived in Mount Pleasant (Charleston area) for a year after college. After we moved to [...]

  • Back in Action


    And I’m back! I promise that last weekend was the end of the intermittent blogging and I’m now returning to regular posting. As you all know (because I told you in every single post last week), the past two weeks have been insane with house closing, moving, traveling, unpacking and preparing for weekend guests. We [...]
