I just love the weekend, but then again who doesn't?? A couple days to catch up and breathe after a work week are always so nice and this past weekend was no exception!
We kicked Friday evening off with a dinner date to a local favorite, Afton Tavern, where we saw a few friends from church. Not to mention we were able to chow down on delicious homemade chips. Don't worry, Nugget got all his/her veggies with a salad;-) After supper we headed home to watch "Prisoners", which David had been talking about seeing for a long while. I didn't know much about it, but figured it had Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhal so it couldn't be all bad. Holy canoli. I'm still having nightmares!! It was so realistically terrifying I still refuse to go into a dark room almost a week later. It was a good movie, but don't watch it alone!
The next morning we woke up early and headed into Charlotte to visit the newest location of Tupelo Honey Cafe. We fell in love with this place (and their biscuits!) in Asheville and I've been dying to go to the new location since it opened in December. We used David's upcoming birthday as our excuse and joined his parents there for a delicious breakfast. Sorry about being such a bad blogger and not taking pictures. . . it was all gone before I thought about it!
Afterwards we headed to the South Park area of Charlotte where David's mom and I went shopping for some maternity clothes (!) at a great maternity store down there. Being pregnant in a completely different season has posed some challenges already. A lot of the maternity clothes I bought when I was pregnant with Emerson will be good for another month or two, but then I'll start needing warm weather clothes, which I have none of! Even though I can still fit into the majority of my clothes, there is definitely a bump poking through and things are getting tight.
That afternoon called for a nap. I didn't sleep well the night before (an unfortunately common occurrence!) so I snuggled down for a bit before Nugget woke me up in need of nutrition. Around that time my oh, so sweet friend (and maid of honor) Kelley came by with her new fella! Kelley works an amazing job at Outward Bound helping kids from all walks of life, but sadly that means we don't see much of her. That just means we have to make the most of the time we have together!
Sunday was fairly uneventful compared to Saturday. We headed to church where the worship band rocked it out before some of the guys from church played flag football in honor of the Superbowl. I headed home to catch up on school (the work of a teacher is never done. . .) before the big game. We were so excited to see the Seahawks pull out such an amazing win!
