A Long Snowpocalypse Weekend

We are recovering from cabin fever over here! It was one heck of a loooooooong weekend! On Thursday I got a call from daycare that Thomas had a fever and needed to be picked up. He turned out to be just fine thankfully. With two kids in daycare there's a 30% chance every single day that I'll get the dreaded call that one of them is sick and needs to be picked up (and can't return for 24 hours). So we cuddled until daddy got home...and then I ran out the door for Supper Club!
Sara kicked off our 2016 Supper Club and it was absolutely awesome. It took me a whole 2 minutes to get to her house since she lives a few streets away and a nice large glass of wine was ready for me when I arrived!
For dinner she served the yummiest chili and paired it with salad and mini cornbread muffins. So good. And I am still dreaming about her oreo cake dessert.
The next morning we were surprised with a snow day! 
We got 3 inches of snow in Charlotte which is actually enough to shut down our entire city and send everyone into panic mode. No bread on the shelves. Milk sold out. Schools closed. It was a true snowpocalypse.
By Saturday the snow had melted just enough that we decided to brave the roads for our sanity. We ventured out to Trader Joes to replenish our wine supply snacks.
Later that night we ubered out to dinner to celebrate Restaurant Week at my favorite place ever - Dogwood! When we arrived we were seated at the same window table we sat at for my birthday which was pretty cool. But what was even cooler was Ron Rivera sitting a few tables away from us. Every night before game day he dines at Dogwood specifically for their unbelievable bacon jam for good luck. So in true Panthers fan fashion, we ordered some bacon jam too!
On Sunday we ran our usual errands, meal prepped for the week, celebrated another Panthers win and watched Caroline turn her kitchen into a jungle gym.



  1. Ah what a fun weekend - even if y'all were snowed in! That is how it is here in Texas though too! I love Caroline's outfit in your family pic! SO cute!!

  2. Great pictures! Love the table set up for supper club. And the bacon jam must have worked!!

  3. Sounds like what happens when we get snow in Baton Rouge except if there's a threat of snow everything shuts down!

  4. Looks like a perfectly Charlotte snow weekend. I miss those! Here in Ohio we get all the snow, but still all the work/school, haha. The video is adorable, and love your date night ;)

  5. Aww that sounds like such a great weekend! And obviously, GO PANTHERS!

  6. Schools are still shut down here- it doesn't take much in the south, does it?! Your dinner out looks fab and I love that video of Caroline- what a little ham!

  7. What a perfect weekend! I was disappointed because we didn't get the snow in Georgia... we were just at the cutoff and barely missed it. Boooo. We're hoping for another chance later this winter!

  8. Such cute little snowbabies!! I love that supper club tablescape and your weekend date night meal looks amazing!

  9. Looks like such a fun weekend!! You have such a beautiful family! I love that you do a supper club with your friends, such a great idea. I have never heard of Dogwood- we'll have to try that next time we're in Charlotte!

  10. I love the idea of a supper club!! Do y'all all take turns hosting? I would love to start this with the ladies at my church soon. So fun!

    Do you know where she got those plates?! They are gorgeous!

    We got 8 inches of snow in Nashville and I'm pretty sure everyone here thought the world was coming to an end lol. We haven't seen that much since 2003. It was pretty but I'm ready for spring to get here!

  11. I love the idea of supper club too! I would be interested in how you guys run that! :) Also, having a shortage of wine is a 100% viable reason to be going out on a snow day. For sure.

  12. Super Club is probably the most fabulous idea ever and the meal that night looked delicious! You guys look darling in the snow all together - such fun!
