Weekend Recap

This was our first full weekend back in Raleigh after the cruise. Luckily Aaron was amazing and took care of all of our laundry last Sunday, so we had time this weekend to get other errands done and fit in some time to relax. I guess after taking 600 pictures on the cruise, I forgot to take more pictures this weekend. Mostly I just have pictures of food!

On Friday after a great day at work I met Aaron and his coworker, Erin, at The Raleigh Times. They had been at a work conference at the Downtown Marriott all day. Shortly after we left and went to Foundation on Fayetteville St, which is a liquor bar, but Aaron and I both ordered a delicious coffee stout. 

Saturday morning was beautiful! Aaron went to the gym and I sat outside on our balcony after tidying up our apartment. We braved the crowds at CostCo and Trader Joe's and rewarded ourselves with lunch at BurgerFi. My burger was delicious and the restaurant had a really fun atmosphere. We were able to sit outside and watch the NC State vs. Duke game while we ate.

Later that evening our friends Kelly and Carmen came over for appetizers and drinks to catch up since we had not seen them since before the holidays. Around 9 we decided to drive downtown to go to the Cornerstone Tavern to see a DJ that I met at the Forever Bridal Show. The DJ wasn't actually playing that night, but we decided to stay for a bit anyway.

After a few songs Aaron and I decided to leave Glenwood South and go to The Architect for our friend Pat's birthday. When we left the bar after midnight the fog was so heavy! It was so dense that he top of the PNC building downtown disappeared completely. I tried to get a good picture of it, but my iphone camera isn't the best in the dark.

We slept in on Sunday morning and then went to Relish Cafe for brunch for gingerbread banana pancakes and fried green tomato biscuits, yum! After brunch we spent a lot of time working on our wedding guest list, shower guests lists, and designed our save-the-date magnets! It feels good to cross items off of our wedding to-do list. Only 9 months to go!

That evening we caught up on a few TV shows (The Office and Bob's Burgers) and then we watched the Golden Globes before bed.

Hope you had a good weekend!
