I think that blog post title just about covers our Saturday in a nut shell!
I arrived home from Boulder early Friday evening (trip recap coming soon!) and spent the night on the couch with Ryan, Sadie and a delicious pizza which was everything I wanted and more. I was exhausted after a late night on Thursday and an early wakeup call on Friday, so a lazy night in sounded perfect.
Saturday, on the other hand, was much more lively! Earlier in the week, my friend Chandra and I made plans to follow up a Saturday morning Pure Barre class with brunch with our husbands and Chandra’s best friend Jessica who was in town for the weekend.
We headed to Davidson which is quickly becoming one of my favorite places. We waited about 10 minutes or so until our table at Toast was ready and then sat down and chatted away while sipping coffee and digging into their delicious corn bread and apple butter.
I ordered the two egg breakfast with fruit and a side of country ham. I used the dippy eggs and ham to make my own breakfast sandwich and had no trouble clearing my plate and using the cornbread to soak up the last of the runny yolks.
After breakfast, our little group walked around the Davidson farmer’s market and popped into a few local shops that are already prepared for the holiday season ahead!
I left with a pig painting I’ve been eyeing for two months.
Every time Ryan and I have visited Davidson and explored the local shops, I’ve left thinking about that pig painting and Ryan finally convinced me to buy it. I have no idea why I love it so much or where I will hang it, but I will find a place!
Once we were done shopping, we said goodbye to our friends and headed home to eat lunch and take Sadie on a long walk. We walked for right around five miles and I’m pretty sure we talked about how fabulous the weather was on Saturday at least 10 times. It was absolutely gorgeous in Charlotte this weekend and truly felt like fall with temperatures in the mid-60s.
Our plans for the evening took us to a restaurant I’ve been dying to try ever since we moved to the Charlotte area.
Cantina 1511 is probably the restaurant I’ve heard the most about since we moved here and I was more than ready to dig into some chips and salsa once we met up with our friends a little after 7 p.m.
(Ryan + Joe + Jamey)
I ordered a glass of cabernet and the chicken fajitas and loved everything!
The portions at Cantina 1511 are pretty darn big and that, coupled with the copious amounts of chips and salsa I ate before dinner, meant I left feeling quite satisfied. It was a great meal and I would gladly go back in the future.
Hope your Saturday was a good one!
