Ahh, Monday. Does anyone else have a relationship with their coffee like this girl, because I know I do (especially on these early mornings). I’m pretty sad that the weekend is over but it’s back to the grind and today marks the start of my 3rd week in general surgery. I can’t believe how fast the time is flying!! Also, tomorrow is September which means fall is just around the corner. PSL, anyone?? Anyways, let’s jump into today’s short & sweet weekend recap!
Ryan came to visit this weekend and this is probably the last time he’ll come to Raleigh until graduation, since my next 2 rotations are in Charlotte. I made reservations at Babylon because I had been telling Ryan about this place for quite some time and I knew Friday would be a great night to dine al fresco. The weather was absolutely perfect and so was the food! Highly recommend the lamb skewers. The night wasn’t complete until we went back home and baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies 🙂
Saturday morning was spent having a big breakfast, lots of coffee, and doing some cleaning around the house. Super exciting… I know, but at least I got to spend it with my favorite person. Later, I attended a Southern Blog Society meet-up at Wendell Falls right outside of Raleigh. It was great to meet some more local NC bloggers and I’ll have more details on that in tomorrow’s post!
Saturday was also my friend Rachael’s birthday. Sarah, Ryan & I headed over to her house that night for celebrations with her friends and family. She and her boyfriend have the cutest little house with the best front porch, complete with a swing. We enjoyed lots of yummy food and even a light show with glow sticks- our friend Eric has mad skills!
He likes me, I swear
I wanted to say thank you again to everyone for all the sweet comments on last Friday’s post, Ryan & I could not be more excited to build our first home together! It’s funny how all of a sudden the wedding talk has shifted to house talk and I actually offered to go to Lowe’s yesterday to look at paint colors and closets. Who am I?!? Haha, it may take a while, but the home decor posts are coming!! Hope y’all enjoy this last day of August 🙂
