Weekend Recap: Cold April Weekend

Well another full weekend is in the books. Having tons of things to do on the weekends is nice but Monday morning always comes way too fast! I was a bad blogger this weekend and didn't take too many pictures...but there are a few.

Friday after work Timmy, my sister Kaylee, her boyfriend and I hit the road and headed to Winston Salem to stay with our grandmother. My dads side of the family lives there and Saturday morning was my cousins Cystic Fibrosis walk. We got there around 8ish and ate dinner and looked at some old photo albums and my grandmother showed Timmy and I her wedding album from 1963, I even got to find some old pictures of my dad and aunt when they were little...stay tuned on Instagram on Thursday for some old Throwback Thursday pictures of my dad as a little boy. We went to bed around 11 because we all had to get up early for the walk.

We woke up Saturday morning to cold and rainy. Not an ideal type of day for the Warriors for Wells walk, but we sucked it up and went out to see my cousins and aunt. If you recall last years walk, we had gorgeous weather! My grandpa from Georgia came down so we got to spend some time with him, before we headed back to Raleigh for the rest of our busy weekend.

We got back to Raleigh around 2 and Timmy and I were exhausted and we knew we had a full night ahead of us so we managed to squeeze in a little nap before we had to start getting ready. Then around 6 we headed to my sisters house to take pictures with her before her FIRST prom! I can't believe she is old enough to go to prom! Where did the years go? She looked so pretty and her date was such a gentleman!

After we waved her off to prom, Timmy and I headed to North Hills to grab something to eat. My three best friends - Paige, Rachel and Chelsea were in town for Rachel's sisters wedding and we had to kill some time before we met up with them after the wedding. We decided to try the Tex-Mex restaurant called Chuy's and oh my gosh did we enjoy it! There was a little bit of a wait but we didn't mind because we found 2 seats at the bar and decided to enjoy some frozen drinks before we got sat. The food was so good and we will definitely be going back. After we finished dinner we decided to go to the new bowling alley at North Hills, Kings, to get some more drinks. This was the first time we had ever been there and it was so neat! They have bowling lanes, darts and so many other games. We weren't in the mood to play any games so we just watched some shows about previous NFL drafts and enjoyed some good cocktails. Finally it was time to head over to World of Beer to meet the bridal party. We had never been to the World of Beer in Raleigh, only in Savannah. We got there a little early before the bridal party and was able to snag a couple of tables to fit everyone. The bride and groom showed up first and the night really got started! I got to see all my best friends - remember Paige and Chels are from California so I don't get to see them too often. It was such a fun night! We were out way too late but it was worth it!

Sunday Paige, Chelsea, Rachel, my sister Caroline, Timmy and I had all planned to go have lunch at Kanki, the Japanese Steak Restaurant at the mall. Well we ended up going with almost the entire bridal party! It was fun and I had never seen them cook that much food on the grill at once. The food of course was delicious and then I had to say my goodbyes to my best friends. I will see Rach probably within the next month but I may not see Paige or Chelsea until my bachelorette party in September! After lunch of course I had to hit up the Lilly in Belk and look for a dress for my bridal shower in June and I found the perfect Lilly dress! I can't wait to show yall!! When I finally made it home, Timmy and I just watched TV and went to bed fairly early!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
