This past weekend was an eventful but fun one. Friday night we had tickets to the Need to Breathe concert at the Fox Theatre, which I had gotten for Drew’s birthday. The last time we’d seen a concert at the Fox together was Mumford and Sons a few months before we got married, so it had definitely been a while. Before the show, we ate dinner at Baraonda, one of our favorite Italian restaurants, with our friends Lance and Shelly. Several of Drew’s coworkers were also attending the concert. Drew and I hadn’t heard of the opening band, Drew Holcomb at the Neighbors, but they put on a great performance. Drew introduced me to Need to Breathe shortly after we got married, and we still listen to their very first CD on every single road trip.
Saturday morning we took Theo for a walk through Piedmont Park. Every Saturday there is a farmer’s market with dozens of tents-there’s even a vendor who makes wood-fired pizzas! The beautiful weather brought a large crowd which proved to be too much excitement for Theo; he was wanting to jump in everyone’s laps and be their new best friend. That afternoon we attended a baby gender reveal party for our friends Andy and Jami. Neither one of us had been to a gender reveal party before but we were looking forward to celebrating such a special time with all our friends. All the guests sprayed silly string to find out the gender, and after a count of three, everyone was covered in pink! Congrats to Andy and Jami, who will be welcoming a little girl come August.
The rest of the weekend was pretty laid back. Sunday’s dinner was a new discovery. Who knew the putting two or three Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in a waffle maker would yield the most delicious waffles ever? Apparently one of Drew’s coworkers did, as that’s how we found out about it. I have a feeling these will be making a regular appearance in our kitchen.
