Weekend Things: April is here!

If I told you I ate tacos (twice), a lamb burger, spicy fried chicken, duck (also twice), soft shell crab and my body weight in chips and salsa this weekend, would you judge me?

It’s finally April!  Which means baseball is back, birthday celebrations are the norm and warm weather is here to stay.  Please please let that last part be true!  I could probably feel gluttonous about this past weekend, but instead I’m feeling happy because this time of the year is just the best and there’s too many fun things happening to not get caught up in it all.  April, I am so glad you are here.


I texted Joey Thursday night and told him I was declaring Friday the start of his birthday, meaning we were gonna ignore the stuff we “needed” to do and just have fun from then on.  I also told him we could do WHATEVER he wanted and he wanted a red velvet cake.  And that’s how you end up carrying two sticks of butter in your purse.  Full cakes are intimidating but I’ve vowed to perfect it by the end of the year.


Oh and Joey also really wanted me to get a lunchtime manicure on Friday 🙂



We skipped out early, for the traditional birthday weekend happy hour at Root Down (In actuality, this is only the second year we’ve partook in that “tradition,” but it should most definitely be a yearly thing.)  We were lucky to grab two spots at the packed bar, then proceeded to order most of the menu.  I wish I could get to the root of it (see what I did there?), but for whatever reason, sitting in the sunshine on a Friday afternoon, sipping a Spicy Paloma and eating lamb sliders and duck wings with my favorite person just makes me the happiest girl in the world.

In true, J&L form, we left Root Down saying “we should go there EVERY Friday!”Read More »
