Friday night I joined Sherri and Tracy to be a roamer at Washington University's Spring WILD (walk in lay down) concert. Botnek and Mac Miller performed and the students had a blast! Funny thing being around college kids at an event like that -- you feel their energy and it makes you feel so young at the same time you feel so old. We enjoyed the evening and the event!
Eric had to work on Saturday and I had high expectations for the day. Carol was bringing by my new wreath and ferns for the porch and I was so excited to see the final outcome. You might remember I bought THESE POTS and Carol was finishing the look. Well, here it is (and I absolutely love it) ~
My day was brightened when Eric showed up after work with these beauty flowers. Yes, I'm lucky he's my husband!
Saturday night we took Ian and Kayla out to dinner at a new place for us - Via Vino. Great night! I just treasure spending time with them and it's so good for the soul to sit and catch up. With Mother's Day approaching, I've been thinking a lot about being a mom and how very much I treasure it. Being a mom to an adult child is certainly different than when they are younger, but spending time with them is equally enjoyable. I'm also so blessed to now have Kayla in addition to Ian. Kayla has become the daughter I never had. Love them!
On Sunday, Eric and I squeezed in as much as we could. First thing we headed over to La Patisserie Chouquette. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know I've blogged about this fabulous bakery before. They are typically not open on Sunday, but were this week to celebrate the release of Spring Baking Championship premiering Sunday night on Food Network. Simone, the pastry chef, is a contestant on the show and I'm so excited to see how she does!! Had to snap a picture with her! Good luck, Simone!
We were a bit hungry so stopped by Old Standard Fried Chicken. Look at this chicken goodness! We each picked a side -- I chose roasted Brussels sprouts and Eric picked mashed potatoes. Both, along with the chicken, were mouth-watering fabulous.
After filling our bellies, we had a little shopping to take care of. With some coupons, I landed a free pair of panties from Victoria Secret and some fragrance samples from Sephora. Love free stuff!
Then we headed home to catch the Blues game. Big, no -- HUGE disappointment. Will we EVER get through the first round of the playoffs?!? Oh my goodness, I'm still in shock that we lost this series. I have no words. The only thing enjoyable about the game was eating "The Darkness" pastry we picked up at Chouquette earlier in the day.
Did you catch my post last night? Well, it's one you don't want to miss! I'm lucky to be participating in the Summer Must Haves for Mom. It's going to be epic! Hope you join in the fun. Please check it out!
Have a great Monday! Showing you an angel food cake tomorrow. Hope you come back to see it.
