Weekending: Tea Time!

Good morning & happy Monday!  This weekend was the best way to kick off the beginning of May.  My sister-in-law flew in Saturday, but I had a jam packed Saturday morning with an aweome collaboration in Cameron Village!  Here's what I was up to this weekend.
Thursday, my friend Lauren was in town for work, so we went to Chet Miller for a little Mother's Day shopping, Ponysaurus for happy hour, and then Bull City Burger for dinner.

(P.S. These are my favorite Jack Rogers, ever).
Friday, I met DG for an early date night at one of my favorite restaurants, Totopos Street Food.

Saturday, I woke up early and headed to Cameron Village for the first of 3 months of an exciting collaboration!  Stay tuned next week for the first round of posts!  Then, I headed to my sweet friend's baby shower.  Her baby girl is due in June and I can't wait to meet her!

I headed home and waited with Gizmo & Winston for my sister-in-law to get in to town.  Her one request was to have dinner at Acme Pizza.  These garlic knots are seriously addictive and delicious!

On Sunday, my sister-in-law and I met my buddy KP at the Tucker House in Historic Oakwood for a tea.

It was a lovely afternoon, and I highly recommend it to anyone in the area next year!  We sampled three teas.  With each tea, there were three foods with each tea.  It was clear that there was a lot of time spent pairing food with the teas, and it was delicious.

I had a lot of people ask me how I found out about this tea.  It has a lot of sponsors in Raleigh, but is really kept pretty quiet.  I happened to stumble upon this when I was writing this post.  I am so happy I did!

The second part of the afternoon was touring 4 gardens in Oakwood.  This house was my favorite.

After our tour, we headed to William & Company for a quick drink before heading home and getting ready for the weekend.

And, as an aside, I started burning this candle this weekend, and I am ob.sessed.
