Weekend Recap

Good Morning! Before I get into my weekend recap I just want to mention Google's entrancing doodle on the homepage today. It reminds me about learning about the water cycle and different types of terrains in Elementary School. Along with cloud patterns, it was always one of my favorite things to study (Thanks Magic School Bus!) Happy Earth Day!

On Friday night Aaron and I braved a massive thunderstorm/potential tornado to go to a Shabbat dinner hosted by the Raleigh Tribe sponsored by Birthright Next. The plan was to have a cookout and grill burgers on the beautiful patio outside of the Oberlin Court Club House, but the our first spring storm here in Raleigh wasn't about to let that happen. Luckily the planning committee was prepared and whipped out a George Foreman grill, so we just moved the party inside! We had a wonderful time celebrating Shabbat, reconnecting with friends and meeting a few new friends!

On Saturday we went to the Southpoint Mall in Durham to meet our potential wedding cake baker/decorator. We had a 4 flavor tasting and planning. I will post a few photos and share more details later this week for Wedding Wednesday! After our tasting we walked around the mall and outside shops for a bit. 
There is a large outdoor shopping area, which I enjoyed because the weather was PERFECT! We stopped into West Elm and spotted this amazing coffee table and an entire garden of potted succulents! On our way home we picked up dinner at The Fresh Market and spent the evening catching up on TV and reading.

Sunday morning we slept in and then made it to CostCo just as it opened to beat the crowds. After a quick trip to Trader Joe's we spent the afternoon napping and reading until our friend Christina came over for dinner. I made pasta with red sauce and meatballs, roasted broccoli florets with garlic and lemon and mushroom bruschetta. Christina is moving up to Washington DC soon, so we were happy to have her over to catch up and tell us all about her plans. Skwisgaar was very charming and entertaining after dinner.

Hope you had a good weekend!
