Hi. It’s been a really great Monday. I would skip the weekend recap post and go straight into the new week (because it’s bringing many changes) but the weekend was so good I have to share that quickly and then we’ll move on! 🙂
The weekend post is brought to you thanks to pizza, M&Ms and Ray LaMontagne.
I stayed in on Halloween night because I was tired from the week and had a really full day on Saturday. I stopped at the grocery on the way home to pick up all the ingredients for my favorite fig and prosciutto flatbread.
I bought this big bag of M&Ms with 50 pieces of Peanut, Plain and Peanut Butter M&Ms. And I had ONE trick or treater. So at this point I have lost track of how many bags of M&Ms I have eaten. The bowl is rapidly decreasing in size. 😉
Saturday flew by in a flurry of teaching yoga, taking yoga and yoga meetings. I had really fun plans that night for pizza and Ray LaMontagne.
Before the concert we went to Mellow Mushroom. I can never resist starting with their Lil’ Greek Salad.
And the pizza of choice was red sauce, mushrooms, Italian sausage, artichokes, olives and feta.
I have loved Ray LaMontagne’s music for many years and was thrilled to finally see him in concert. He played at Ovens Auditorium here in Charlotte and I put on my red lipstick for the occasion. (I’ve been loving it lately!) It was a nice low-key night. I enjoyed having seats and actually sitting for most of the concert. (Guess I’m getting old.)
Ray sounded live exactly how he does on albums, which I always respect. He just has an amazing voice. Personality…a little lacking…but music was on point.
I had a girl’s brunch on Sunday after I taught my yoga church class. It was freezing here this weekend so I wore a long sleeved sweater dress and tights for the first time this season! Tom’s wedges and my favorite Tilo scarf to finish off the outfit. Sullie was like, “Mom…enough selfies. Seriously…”
I can never resist the breakfast pita at Nolen Kitchen. I intended to get a salad but got sucked in by the pita yet again. It’s a mix of scrambled eggs, oven roasted tomatoes, spinach and feta in a soft, warm tortilla.
I wrapped up Sunday with lots of computer work, my long run and cooking dinner. It was a great weekend.
Red lipstick…yes or no!?
