Weekend recap and big changes!

Weekend recap and big changes!

Happy Monday! Did you have a nice weekend? I got to visit The Original Pancake House again for a delicious breakfast with the family. Michael has been such a picky eater lately, but he certainly can put away some dollar pancakes when we go to that restaurant! My nieces Ava and Brianna turned one over the weekend, so we went to their first birthday party on Sunday. They were so adorable with their little cakes, and Ava cracked me up by diving into hers face first. Who needs to use their hands or utensils anyway? It was such a fun time,...

Weekend recap

Happy Monday! Before I jump into the happenings from my weekend, I want to remind you to enter my NuNaturals giveaway.  There will be four winners, so the odds of winning are pretty good! Onto the weekend… MT and I had a date at Portofino’s…again.  We just love the low key atmosphere and the food so much that we haven’t had any desire to go anywhere else lately. If you want even more predictability, I ordered salmon as my entree. Maybe we’ll have to shake things up soon for the purposes of the blog. We did...

Weekend recap (date night)

Weekend recap (date night)

Happy Monday! Friday was MT’s birthday, so we celebrated by having a date night…without kids! We went to a local restaurant called Portofino’s for dinner.  It has quickly become a favorite of ours. MT loves the pizza, and I always order the salmon salad.  Truth be told, I really order it for the house salad dressing.  It is so good that I could probably drink it.  Apparently, the recipe is a well-guarded secret that only family members are allowed to know.  I’ve tried to replicate it at home several times, but...

Weekend recap (baby clothes shopping & date night)

Weekend recap (baby clothes shopping & date night)

Happy Monday! I had such a fun weekend with my two Michaels.  I took loads of pictures, so I’m just going to dive right into the weekend recap. We did tons of baby clothes shopping on Saturday for our baby girl, and we even scored some cute things for Michael.  I’m going to do a separate post showing what we got, but here’s a little preview…   Paddington Bear for Baby Gap Polka Dot Tulip Top   I could probably spend hours in Baby Gap.  Without a doubt, it is my very favorite place to shop for baby clothes. ...

Weekend recap (I’m an aunt!)

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...

How to make healthy meal choices at a Mexican restaurant

How to make healthy meal choices at a Mexican restaurant

Hola! Last night, I met up with some girlfriends (and fellow mommies) for dinner at a Mexican restaurant called Charanda.  It is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area, and I’ve never had a meal there that I didn’t like. It was so much fun to catch up with the girls, and being the wild and crazy mommies that we are (totally kidding) were we there until close. Apparently, we had a lot to say about the topic of poopy diapers. I’ve always loved going out for Mexican food- even as a child.  Unfortunately, it is...
