Weekend Shenanigans

The last weekend of March was here and gone! I can’t believe Easter has passed by so quickly too!!!

My Friday started out with a great lunch at Real and Rosemary with Laura. Real and Rosemary is a new spot in Homewood that offers healthier lunch options and is just the cutest place! I love the rosemary that was planted out on their patio. I ordered the Spiced Rubbed Chicken with succotash and a corn polenta cake. Everything was delicious and I didn’t feel an ounce guilty about the meal.

I got out of work a little early on Friday so Chris and I spent some time over at his parents house Friday evening and called it an early night.

Saturday morning I cleaned the house, played some Wooly Yoshi on the Wii U and then we headed out to Hickory Tavern for a late lunch. Everything was delicious as always! We split the Shredheads (basically fried hashbrown balls) and I had the Korean BBQ tacos and sweet potato fries.

Every Easter, Chris and I have breakfast at Waffle House and this Easter was no exception! I love our traditions!

After breakfast, we headed over to Chris’s parents house to help get ready to host the family for lunch. It’s always great seeing everyone! After that, we headed to Walmart to pick up a few things since we didn’t get our grocery shopping in.

And just like that the weekend was over. I feel like we hardly got anything done, but that is the way most weekends go…right?! I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Linking up with Biana.

    I haven’t been to the Waffle House in years, although I have explained to K what “that big yellow building” is. She says she’ll never have to eat there, I told she will definitely eat there some night after 2 AM when she’s older.

    Traditions are my favorite. It looks like a great weekend!

    That first meal looks absolutely delish- especially the side of corn! 🙂 I love that you have an Easter breakfast tradition each year! Our only tradition is getting each other adult Easter baskets each year haha- I love it though!

    What a great tradition! I haven’t been to a Waffle House in forever! Those hash balls sound delicious, and the new restaurant looks so cute! I just want to roadtrip to your hood to eat at all these awesome restaurants you’re always going to! Sounds like a relaxing weekend!

    I don’t think I’ve been to a Waffle House in ages. I should go back sometime.

    Hey, relaxing is getting some stuff done, right? It sounds like you had a great weekend at home, and had a great time just relaxing! I love that you have an Easter tradition of breakfast at Waffle House! It’s the little things, right?
