On Friday I said that the week had flown by. And here I am on Monday telling you that the weekend flew by even faster. Why does that happen? On Saturday I taught before we headed to get pedicures. That’s right, Big Guy requested we get pedicures and they were awesome. We had plans in Raleigh on Saturday evening and we headed that way early afternoon. Before heading to dinner, we had a little happy hour at Vivace complete with wine and a delicious cheese plate. We had the best time hanging out.
We didn’t want to leave but we needed to head back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We had reservations at Second Empire, an amazing restaurant that we love but haven’t been in years. I didn’t snap in pictures at dinner because I really just wanted to enjoy my time with the husband. It was an incredible dinner and I am so thankful for our date nights.
Sunday ended up being incredibly fun after a last minute decision to invite some friends over for pizza. The recipe for the dough requires a little time but it ended up being a great crust. One of the pizza was topped with mortadella, an Italian sausage that is studded with pistachios, as well as mozzarella, parmesan and a pistachio-oil drizzle. The other pizza was full of flavor with juicy pear slices, sweet dates, creamy burrata and crispy fried sage.
The pizzas were so different but super yummy. I will never get tired of pizza Sunday.
And now it’s back to the grind. This week is a busy one but I’m looking forward to a few dinners at home and a fun weekend that lies ahead.
