Weekend Rewind | June 2019

We had one heck of a weekend. Let’s recap.


Matt and I went on a date night to Foxcroft Wine (my favorite restaurant in Charlotte). We tried a new bottle of rosé and enjoyed all of our favorite small plates plus a few more.


Saturday morning we had a nice old man named Buzz (Matt found on google) over to test the air in our home. Both kids have had coughs forever now and we’ve done literally everything to make them go away. However, last week Caroline started complaining about chest pain and when her teacher called one day to tell us she was crying at school over the chest pain we got her to the doctor right away. The doctor immediately sent her down the street for an emergency chest x-ray (y’all, I cannot explain how worried I was…about Matt). A GINORMOUS blessing, the test results came back completely normal! So the doctor now believes Caroline is getting heartburn and/or has some terrible allergies, so Matt insisted we get our air quality checked.  So anyway, Buzz left little petri dishes filled with goo in every room of our house and told us we needed to leave for the morning so we took the kiddos to Topgolf! It was our first time and was SO much fun for everyone. The brunch was absolutely incredible too. 

After Topgolf we met our friends at the pool where we spent the rest of the afternoon before heading back home for Sandroni Steak Night.

Sunday we went to church followed by lemonade on the lawn. Afterwards we walked to Sundries for lunch and then stopped at Elizabeth Creamery for ice cream (our first ice cream shop on our summer bucket list)! We spent the rest of the day relaxing at home, catching up on piles and piles of laundry, we rented Dumbo and had Korean Pork Bowls for dinner.

And that was a wrap on our weekend!

      HAHAHA! ME TOO! We have to let these dishes sit out for FOUR DAYS before he comes back and analyzes them!! Stay tuned!! PS — Matt is convinced he already sees activity in one of the petri dishes…

      YES! I think Charlotte JUST got the brunch menu, but you definitely should check GVL location for it. SOO GOOD!

    Read that you had an old man buzz from your Rose’ drinking the night before… Super confused on that one on why Matt googled it!

    My heart goes out to you deeply on the loss of your father. I know exactly how your heart is hurting. Thank you for still sharing your blog and beautiful family with those of us out here despite all you are going through.

    Local Charlotte Mama and would love to get our air quality tested as well. Did you like Buzz? Could you share his info? Thanks!

      WE LOVE BUZZ. Sadly, he’s retired now and didn’t realize his information was still on google! When Matt called he said he doesn’t normally take on new clients but Buzz’s wife overheard him and said he should take us on as his ONE last client — and he agreed. hahaha.
