A few things from this weekend… In list form!
We started watching season one of Homeland last night and let’s just say we’re ALL IN. We popped the first DVD in before 5 p.m. and did nothing else until bedtime. The show is so addicting and we’re already hooked! I’m really hoping to squeeze in an episode or two after dinner tonight! Big goals, I know. Haha!
- Pure Barre Change Up
My local Pure Barre studio introduced a new warm up routine on January 1 (routines change every 3 months) and I did it for the first time on Saturday. Oh man, it is a killer and totally lit my core on fire! I was ready to shake things up a bit so the new routine came at the perfect time and was oh-so-humbling.
- Bye, Bye Christmas
We put away all of our Christmas decorations and the Christmas lights this weekend. Ryan and I divided up the tasks and while I tackled the inside décor, he packed up the outdoor lights which made the process go by faster than anticipated! I now feel like there’s a big void in our house where the Christmas tree is supposed to be. The post-holiday blues are setting in…
- Pizza Night
Ryan and I got together with our friends Chandra and Kevin on Friday night and spent hours chatting away and eating several slices of our all-time favorite pizza at Brooklyn South. It’s our go-to spot for pizza and after raving to Chandra and Kevin about it in the past, the four of us met up for a low key pizza night which was exactly what I was in the mood for on Friday. So delicious!
- Breakfast at Terrace Café
Terrace Café came highly recommended to me by my friend Lindsay! I actually took my sister to the delicious breakfast hot spot when she was in town last fall, but Ryan had yet to give it a try, so we headed to the café for brunch on Sunday and grabbed a seat at the bar. Their food is absolutely fabulous (I ordered the quiche of the day and shared a half-order of the biscuits and gravy with Ryan to start) but I think their specialty coffee drinks are equally worthy of praise.
When I went with my sister, I had the peanut butter cup latte and it was out of this world! This time, I opted for a hazelnut almond milk cappuccino and I don’t know what they do to their coffee to kick the flavor up a notch, but it’s unreal. I think they have the best specialty coffee drinks I’ve found in Charlotte so far! I just had to give this place a shout out in case you’re a local reader and haven’t been to Terrace Café yet. Put it on your radar!
- Whole Foods Apple Pie a la Mode
Talk about the best way to end the weekend! As we settled in to watch our millionth episode of Homeland last night, Ryan and I split this big bowl of warm apple pie and creamy ice cream and it was all kinds of amazing. The perfect way to cap off a lazy Sunday night!
