Weekend recap (I’m an aunt!)
This past weekend was nothing short of exciting, but before I jump into all of the really good stuff, here are some of the other bits…
First of all, the weather remained extremely gloomy and rainy.
When the grocery stores start to make cookie cakes like this one rather than birthday cakes, you just know things have been bad!
MT and I had a little date on Saturday evening and went to a restaurant called Mickey & Mooch for dinner.
It has been a pretty popular restaurant in Charlotte for years, but it was the first time either of us had ever dined there.
We started with some drinks and the tuna appetizer. I had- you guessed it- salmon as my entree. I swear that one day I am going to grow fins.
I enjoyed my dinner very much, but Michael’s steak was kind of a disappointment.
I’m usually not one to criticize a restaurant on the blog, but let’s just say that the ambiance and service weren’t great either.
At least we finally tried it!
And I also got to wear the cute little red and white striped dress that I bought at a boutique in Pinehurst a few weeks ago.
There were some errands and drives and obviously some other meals throughout the weekend, but the best part was when my sister Melissa had her twin baby girls!
All throughout her pregnancy, Melissa and my brother-in-law Matt referred to the girls as Baby A and Baby B, so they chose the A and B names Ava and Brianna.
(Fun fact: If Michael had been a girl, we were going to name him Ava.)
They are the tiniest little babies and so so so sweet. Being that I don’t have a daughter (yet?), it will be fun to spoil them with frilly pink clothes and take them for manicures and shopping at the mall.
I’m also so happy that Michael has cousins right around his age and that they’ll grow up together.
How lucky are we?
How was your weekend? What is the weather like where you live?
