weekend randoms

Good Morning!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  We had a wonderful weekend with some sunshine (finally) and cold temps.  While this sounds pitiful, I had the greatest time on Friday...stuck in traffic.  I know, I know- this is what life has come to!  BUT, I found a great station on the radio, didn't have any phone calls or pressing emails, and just sat by myself for about twenty minutes in traffic.  It was heavenly!  Call me crazy but y'all it made me so happy.

Friday night we reconnected with friends we hadn't seen in FOREVER!  We had a fabulous meal at Crooks Corner- a Chapel Hill favorite- complete with banana pudding and homemade ice cream for dessert.  Delish.
the best banana pudding...with meringue on top!
AND, after dinner, I did probably the "hippest" thing I will ever do...I went to a bar...with no sign on the door.  Honestly, it was a little bit of a let-down though.  It has been hyped up as the next great place, but I wasn't too impressed with the drink selection and it almost seemed to be trying too hard.  I can check it off the Chapel Hill bucket list though!

literally... this was the front door

a little dark for a picture...but in case you can't tell...this is a vodka apple juice.
not my first choice, but very authentic apparently
Saturday and Sunday were dominated by school work.  (My class outside of law school doesn't understand the concept of just having a final at the end of the term...mid-term papers what?!)  We did make it out to Bull City in Durham to catch up with more friends we hadn't seen in ages.  Thirty Rock references dominated the conversation...always makes for a good night.

AND, I have to share this picture from our "sunday supper."  I really think he tried to blow out the candle for a good 3 minutes...adorable.

and...how cute are my sister-in-laws heart plates for valentine's day?  target...get em' quick!

Finally, I want to leave you with an excerpt from the book I am reading, Happier at Home.  When making big decisions, the author has developed five questions she asks herself.  I loved this and thought you might like it too:

Love to you all and as always thank you for reading.  I might be a little less frequent with the posts this week...big school event on Thursday!  Hope you had a fabulous weekend- I'd love to hear about it in the comments section.
