Happy Friday! We are heading to the beach this weekend for Easter, so by the time you read this (I’m writing this on Thursday afternoon), hopefully we’ve had a smooth morning and we’re on our way! I hope you have a wonderful Easter and have some fun plans with friends and/or family, or however you like to spend it.
I have some favorites to share from the week and as always, I hope you’ll share yours in the comments. I love seeing comments as a way to connect with you guys, so it makes me so happy when you share what you’re loving too!
Ed and I had a date night this week. It’s been a good 6-8 weeks since our last one. The weather was beautiful and we wanted to find a patio for an outdoor drink before dinner. We headed down to Merchant and Trade wanting a rooftop drink to overlook the city. BUT, Ed was wearing sneakers (like nicer-ish ones) and apparently they have a strict dress code and wouldn’t let him in.
I went up to get our parking ticket validated (LOL, I wasn’t going to miss out on that) and snagged a picture, but sadly we didn’t get to enjoy a cocktail at this view.
We headed next door and had a cocktail and some brussel sprouts at Angeline’s instead.
New Local Bakery/Cinnamon Buns
After church last weekend, we stopped into a new bakery, where I obviously had to try a cinnamon bun. No shame in saying that frosting is my favorite part and I typically eat most of that first (with some bites of cinnamon bun).

Love this photo, not much else to say here.
Podcast Episodes and Books
I listened to this podcast episode on Food Psych with a social psychologist about how dieting doesn’t work and it was a great episode!
I loved this quote from Dr. Hunger: “It takes effort to undue the diet culture that has been damaging people for decades. The benefits of being on the other side far outweigh any of the challenges that come with adopting an intuitive eating practice.”
I also just picked up Daring Greatly and I’m hoping to read it at the beach this weekend.
Also on my to-read list:

168 Hours by Laura Vanderkam
Neighbor Pizza Date and Playground
Last weekend we got pizza at Mandolino’s with my neighbor who has a three year old. If you’re in the Davidson/Lake Norman area, we love this place in downtown Davidson. It’s family run and the pizza is GOOD. This is a white sauce one with eggplant.
Then we went to a “new” local playground and Camryn loved it.
Lastly, some of Ed’s friends from college got stuck in the Charlotte airport and had their flight postponed until the following day. So, we had a mini reunion with some of his other friends in the area. I should say, my friends now too!
But, everyone in this photo (minus me and one of the husbands) went to school together and ran cross country and track. And now, one of the couples has twins that are about Camryn’s age. So we got together and tried to squeeze in a group photo 🙂
Okay, time to go finish packing so we can get to Camryn’s swim class this afternoon.
