I had some great times this weekend with my Mom and sister. We are all three so much alike, after a day of chatting away and running around all day I am quite worn out :D
We were on a huge green smoothie kick too…
Mom making a Green Cabbage, Pear, Banana and Carrot Smoothie…tasted like dirt
Sara making a Kale, Banana, Apple, and Mixed Berries Smoothie…looked like dirt
Spinach, Apple, Banana, Flax Smoothie and topped with homemade granola…simply delicious
I have no pictures from Friday, but we spent the afternoon in Cary. I first treated us all to an hour massage and an express facial. Then we headed to Trader Joe’s and Earthfare to pick-up our delicious eats for the weekend.
First up was a Smoked Salmon breakfast before we headed out on Saturday morning for the Durham Farmer’s Market.
Some of my favorites…
Daisy Cakes, mmmm. Red Velvet, PB & Jelly, Vairhona Double Chocolate, and Chocolate Vanilla.
Scratch Bakery (can’t wait for her downtown Durham location to open in a few weeks)!!
Pigs in a blanket
Crostatas and Empanadas
Dolly Mama Chocolates
Had to pick up a hazelnut chocolate bunny for my Easter candy!
We swung by The Scrap Exchange and had fun being silly in the store. Then we headed over to Wine Authorities for a free wine tasting and to purchase most of the items for our dinner (below). Plus, a must-have frozen yogurt from Local Yogurt!!
We shared a yogurt cup so we’d still have room to enjoy a late lunch at Toast. My beautiful sister and me. We proudly sported our UK gear all over town.
Even a spotting of the new Korean Taco Truck, I heard about last week.
After napping and some quiet time we set-up our Wine Authorities eats…three cheeses, two loaves of bread…
and a nice bottle of Welschriesling was enjoyed with the UK game. Sadly, the CATS ended their tournament games at the Elite Eight. We stand proud though with the awesome year we had, it was such a fun basketball season.
Wilson snoozin’ away
Sunday afternoon, we headed out to Duke Gardens before the rain that was forecasted to hit. Andy was glad to have some alone time each day too, as three of us is admittedly a lot to handle.
After an hour or so of walking we headed over (in our UK gear!) to Duke’s main campus to enjoy an outdoor Sunday brunch at The Refectory. I LOVE this place and don’t get a chance to go nearly enough. Check out their mission: " (Side note: I hated my first job at Duke and used to day dream about working here.) I forgot to take any photos :( but we shared an Egg Bake Platter with grits and sausage and Corn Flake Crusted French Toast with Strawberries.
We ate it outside on the lawn with the pups.
Finally, we headed over to Ninth Street to pursue Vaguely Reminiscent – this was such a cute, fun hat that I tried on. And I would be lying if I didn't mention that we headed back over to Local Yogurt on Sunday too for another treat. :D
We had such a great time together!!
