Mother’s Day Weekend 2017

It was a pretty solid Mother’s Day weekend around here.

We kicked off the weekend with an impromptu date night to one of our favorite restaurants, Good Food on Montford. Normally Matt isn’t a small plates kind of guy but this restaurant is the exception for him because the steamed bun is OUT of this world delicious. After dinner we weren’t completely confident the kids would be asleep yet so we walked down the street to a bar for a few more cocktails.

Later we arrived home to quite possibly the best surprise of all time — Ms. Jamie had done all of the kids’ laundry. So yeah, Mother’s Day weekend was off to a pretty spectacular start.

 On Saturday Caroline and I attended Camille’s 3rd birthday party!

The party was hosted in the craft room at Michaels and was so dang adorable.

After getting the kids to bed Matt and I grilled burgers and shared a bottle of champagne on our back deck late into the night. I can’t wait to share this new burger recipe with y’all (coming Friday) — omg, unreal and ridiculously easy.

The next morning I LOL’d so hard when I stumbled into the kitchen for coffee and found an Us Weekly sitting out with my Mother’s Day cards. Smut magazines are totally a guilty pleasure of mine but I rarely purchase them so I was ridiculously pumped about my new reading material. Oh, and Matt surprised me with a spa day at the Ritz. Several of my girlfriends got the same gift from their husbands too so we could spa together. Well played, husbands!

Gifts from my babies!

Thomas: shorts // shoes | Caroline: dress // bow // shoes

We went out for breakfast to one of my very, very, very favorite breakfast spots, Zada Janes.


The Booker T’s East Side Hasher is my second favorite breakfast (to the Early Girl Benny in Asheville) and although it looks incredibly simple, it’s impossible to recreate exactly.

The rest of the day was absolutely beautiful so we spent a ton of time outside playing, Matt finished cleaning out the garage (my car fits now!!!!!) and I worked on a project for Caroline’s room.

Finally, I would be remiss not wrap up this post by saying how dang lucky I am to be the mama to my two amazing little people!
