Weekending: Raleigh Fun

Last week/weekend wasn't my favorite.  Monday, we found out our new couch wouldn't fit up the stairs in the bonus room and I was insanely disappointed we had to cancel the order.  Things sort of went downhill from there, but the exciting events of the weekend kept me going.

Thursday, I had a little girls' night fun with my friend Michelle.  We had girl talk and a yummy meal at Sip Bistro.

Friday, DG and I were invited to the Frill girls debut on Shark Tank at Noir in Raleigh.  I went to Parlor Dry Bar for my monthly blow out and really enjoyed myself.  Raleigh girls, go book yourself an appointment right now.  It is such a fun, relaxing way to treat yourself.

Claire asked me if it was worth it and how long it lasts.  I am pretty terrible at doing my own hair so I love getting mine done.  I can get my blowouts to last for about 3-4 days unless I run an 8K the next day (oops).

On my way home, DG called to tell me he got a flat tire, which was really just the icing on the cake for my week.  Y'all, I know it wasn't his fault, but I was so disappointed.  I went and waited on the side of the highway with him for about an hour until Triple A came and helped him.

I wish I was kidding.

So, I rushed home and got ready to head out.

Real life selfie: unmade bed and steamer on the floor.  And what would a picture be without a Winston photobomb.

Mr. Wonderful showed up at the Frill viewing!  It was such a fun night celebrating Kate and Sharon and their accomplishments.


Saturday morning, my plans had a kink thrown in them because I had to take DG's car to get new tire.  I did something new for the first time by driving with a spare on and felt like an adult.  

Saturday afternoon, KP and I ran our annual St. Paddy's 8K in downtown Raleigh.  This is our third year doing it and we have the best time.  Tir Na Nog sure knows how to host a good time.  We also take same awkward picture every year.

After our run, we headed over to Clouds Brewing to celebrate.  We've heard great things about Clouds, and I am happy to report that it did not disappoint!  Their pretzels are seriously amazing.  Maddie has talked about them before and she was not lying.  SO good.  I also got the portobello veggie sandwich.  I'm pretty convinced the portobello cancels out the fried green tomato, pimiento cheese, and pretzel bun.  I told you I run for food.

I came home and literally crashed at 7:00.  I'm not even ashamed to admit that.

Sunday, I woke up and met with a painter to get an estimate on our bathrooms.  We're pretty anxious to get some work done around our house.  We did a lot of painting ourselves, but after having our hallways, foyer, and bonus room done in less than a day by professionals, we got a little spoiled.

It was a seriously gorgeous day in North Carolina, so DG and I took W for a walk.

And then I went in to work.  I was so excited to wear my new top from Loft (thanks for the recommendation, Kristina!)
