Weekend Recap

I don’t normally post “weekend recaps,” but this past weekend was jam packed with so much goodness I decided it was necessary.

Friday night one of my best friends, Mel, threw her fiance a surprise 30th birthday dinner at Beef N’ Bottle Steakhouse {Charlotte’s #1 voted steak, year after year since 1958}. From the outside, this restaurant looks like an old Texas strip club, but the food is phenomenal.

Mel did such a good job throwing this party together for Travis and 18 of his best friends. Check out those adorable party favors she made – Maker’s Mark mini bottles with 30 SUCKS lollipops. 

For dinner, I got a filet and Matt got filet and lobster. Oh my goodness, this was definitely the best steak I’ve ever had (sorry dad)! It was cooked perfectly and had so much flavor. If you’re looking for the best steak in Charlotte, I highly recommend Beef N’ Bottle!

 For dessert, I homemade rainbow chip cupcake cones {birthday boy’s special request}! Recipe coming later this week!


Saturday I ran a million errands, including a hair cut, a lunch date, Target and an emergency repair trip to Best Buy after dropping my computer and lodging my camera chip inside. 

We also picked up Caroline’s dresser for the nursery and our new chairs for our living room arrived. Now we just need to find the perfect pillows for them {the
grey ones are just placeholders for now}. More details on these room updates to come!

Sunday was April’s baby shower!

Laura and I on our way to the shower!

As always, April looked absolutely gorgeous and her shower was super cute. There were so many adorable details…liiike the front door diaper wreath and the potted flower party favors to name a few! But you’ll have to check April’s blog for the full recap.

Souvenirs from the weekend!
