Allie’s List: March

After reading Leslie’s List, a series blog post on Cupcakes & Cashmere, I was inspired to start my own. Here’s what is on Allie’s List this February.



January 1, I made it my resolution to make 2018 more about my friends. Most would tell you I am not the greatest at a texting conversation and I’ll be the first to admit towards the end of last year, I fell into a routine that I got so comfortable in, I never broke the mold to be spontaneous and go to dinner or catch a movie. This month, I have a sweet friend making her way to Raleigh to visit, dinner with a girl I haven’t seen since we graduated college and so many more mini reunions. It makes me excited to have these little dates planned!

Wilmington is home to my four favorite restaurants. From fresh, upscale seafood at Catch (the owner and chef was on Top Chef!), to the perfect brunch at Sweet & Savory, a killer burger at Poe’s, or even irresistible mexican cuisine at Baja Grill – my mouth is watering just thinking about an upcoming trip to the beach and getting my fix while I am there.


Second Life

I recently reapplied for a Wake County Library Card and instantly checked out Second Life, one of Reese Witherspoon’s book club staples. I am halfway through with no earthly idea how the story will end so I can appreciate the author’s commitment to keep her reader guessing. Read it before it comes out in theatres!

Survivor is back for it’s 36th season with a take on previous player’s mistakes. The crew is new and more ready than ever to get going on the game as shown in the premier episode last Wednesday. Watch Wednesdays with me on CBS!


The music you hear going at the office is coming from me. A cold, dreary end to February had me craving new tunes. This led me to finding the Morning Coffee and Chill Hits playlists on Spotify which both were an easy “follow” and make slow afternoons go that much quicker.


Indoor Plant

I’m going to make this easy this month. My “make” goes hand in hand with my recent obsession with indoor plants. No, I do not have a green thumb but something about the unique little guys has me pinning them left and right. When Hayden mentioned a trip to Logan’s Garden Shop it got me excited to pick out my own to pair with a cool indoor pot or basket to add to our slow house decor accumulation.

What are you up to this month?
