Weekending: A Taste of Spring

This weekend was a gorgeous taste of spring in North Carolina.  This is the time where I stop checking the weather forecast with my fingers crossed for a little snow icon and temps below 32 degrees to when I check for sun and 70s.  
I woke up Saturday and went for a long run and then headed to visit a friend and her new baby.  Saturday night, our plans got a little changed up, so we decided to try Driftwood Kitchen, a new to us restaurant, in Lafayette Village in Raleigh.  The restaurant was such a cool, rustic spot, the food was delicious, and Lafayette Village is absolutely adorable.

Dinner starts out with pork rinds instead of bread. 

DG and I ordered an appetizer of andouille & pepperjack hushpuppies.

I ordered a lobster roll with housemade chips and it was delicious.  I stole a bite of DG's macaroni & cheese and was really impressed.

Lafayette Village with its cute market lights and Ella Fitzgerald playing through the walkways was just perfect.

Also on Saturday, I was surprised with a package of goodies from Klen Shop in Raleigh.  I love all the champagne themed items.  Klen is a hand-poured, small batch shop locally made by two mamas who were looking to get rid of harsh chemicals in their lives.  I have been trying to do the same with my skincare, which is why I started using BeautyCounter.  I immediately tried every product Klen gave me and I am sold!  Check out their awesome selection here.

I met up with Em and took outfit pictures on Sunday.  It was such a gorgeous day for it and I was able to preview spring outfits, but man was I exhausted when I got home.  I made sure that I had my La Croix with me while I was shooting for a little extra pick-me-up.  What's your favorite La Croix flavor?
P.S. I'm wearing Smith & Cult Stockholm Syndrome on my nails.

How was your weekend?  Link up and tell Biana and me all about it!

Happy Monday!
