Happy Wednesday! I missed posting last night because we were busy having a birthday extravaganza for my mother in law. We didn’t make it to bed until midnight. When my alarm went off at 5:15 this morning I definitely had one of those, “Where am I? What day is it? Where do I have to be?” moments! I managed to get myself moving and over to Flex + Fit to teach yoga with weights. And then I drank a lot of coffee. 😛
Last night was totally worth the lack of sleep. We surprised my mother in law with a limo and a night out on the town! She thought we were just having a casual dinner at Myers Park Country Club. We met for drinks on the patio at 6:30.
She honestly had no idea that anything was up.
The limo was set to arrive at 7 so we wrapped up cocktail hour and convinced her to walk out front. She was shocked to see the limo! We all piled in and swung by their house so she could do a quick outfit change. Champagne was popped.
And the festivities began!
The plan was to hit two up two restaurants for appetizers and drinks and then wrap things up with a third stop for dessert.
The first restaurant was George’s Brasserie.
George’s is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. We ordered a few appetizers for the table – mussels, calamari, cheese plate and “Frenched” wings. And of course lots of bread for dipping in the white wine sauce that came with the mussels. The best part!
Downtown seemed like a must for our celebration tour.
We arrived at the EpiCentre and a photo shoot ensued.
We went to Mez where we enjoyed city views and another round of appetizers and drinks.
This time around we ordered a pancetta flat bread, Mediterranean dip with pita and olives and cheese wontons. I love the vibe at Mez!
Our driver was awesome and always prompt. We loaded back in the limo for our final stop.
Amelie’s for dessert…I was in heaven!
I ordered two mini tarts (chocolate raspberry and lemon raspberry) and a coffee. I also had more than a few samples of everyone else’s pastries too. I just couldn’t help myself! 😳
The limo dropped us off back at the club. Everyone was sad to see the night come to an end but it was a huge success! Yay for birthdays, limos, fun times and family!
Have you ever rented a limo? What was your favorite limo experience!? They remind me of prom…even though my friends never rented one for prom…
