Weekend Recap: A Visit Home

Another weekend, another lonely camera roll. I guess we should all be used to this by now but I promise I will continue to try to take more/better pictures!
This weekend, I headed back to Raleigh to spend some time with friends I hadn’t had the chance to see in a while. Saturday morning was spent at one of my favorite places in Raleigh – a true “hidden gem.” Morning Times is tucked away downtown and is the perfect coffee spot as it is completely unique serving seasonal brews that change all the time. I have never chosen one I didn’t like. 
Their biscuits are also to die for. I indulged in a bacon, egg and cheese breakfast biscuit while Kara chose the breakfast burrito. We made our way upstairs to a quaint table by the window. The atmosphere is next to none and the dining area slowly filled with such a variety of weekend coffee lovers. My dad has always been right – morning people are the best people.
After catching up with Kara, I met my mom at Crabtree Valley Mall for some weekend shopping. Though I wasn’t as successful as I had hoped, I managed to score this 1 State Polka Dot Dress (nothing beats a shift), a Lucky Brand Night Dreamer Wrap Bathing Suit (obsessed with the support this style gives), and these comfortable Rock and Candy Sandals (I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect work sandal). 
Most of my weekend was spent playing around with my parent’s new puppy, Beasley. She is the absolute cutest and is entertained simply by throwing the ball.
Saturday night my mom introduced me and one of her friends to the local Cinebistro. We waited until our movie was called and made our way into the extravagant theatre where we were greeted by the most comfortable, leather recliners I have ever met. I enjoyed a delicious cobb salad & my mom and her friend ordered the fish tacos & brussels sprouts (highly recommended, so delicious!). We split a bottle of wine & enjoyed the comedy. I will definitely be returning for a date night next time I get back to Raleigh!
Please excuse this horrendous selfie and pay attention to the happiest, most adorable women beside me. 
I got to spend Sunday morning at my favorite church, Hope, with one of my best college friends/roommates. It was so nice to feel at home again as I am struggling to find a church I love as much in Charlotte. 
Finally, I caught brunch with Meggie, one of my best camp friends at Toast Cafe in Cary. They had a delicious breakfast burrito and the servers are always so polite. I hadn’t seen Meggie in a while so we talked over coffee for a while before it was time to make my way back to Charlotte. 
Now that this weekend is over, there are many more busy ones to come! I am excited for my parents to visit Charlotte this weekend for Father’s Day. It has been over a year since they have visited and I am planning on showing them some of my favorite local spots before we catch a Knight’s game on Saturday night!
Happy Monday!
