Weekend Update

Hi Friends! I hope y'all had a great weekend. The Husband and I had an uneventful weekend and I gotta tell ya, it was nice! I started the weekend with some Cupcake wine (one of my inexpensive faves) and a lengthy phone conversation with one of my best blog friends. Once The Husband got home, we hit one of our favorite tapas bar for a late dinner. Somehow I was able to get my hair up in a messy french twist in lieu of having to touch it up. Score! Here's a pic from the back...

I had the seafood paella for dinner and some house made sangria. It was just what the doctor ordered!

Saturday morning, I attended a bridal shower for last weekend's bachelorette. Her wedding is in four short weeks and I'm really getting excited! The shower was at the Swan Coach House, a true Atlanta icon. We sipped on mimosas and noshed on tea sandwiches...pimento cheese and chicken salad...a Southerner's delight! I didn't snap any pics of our lunch, believe it or not, but here's a picture from the outside of the Swan Coach House.

Saturday night, The Husband and I had big plans to try a new restaurant, however, we were both so tired, we decided to stay close to home. We walked up to L'Thai, an awesome all organic restaurant. Here's a snap shot of my dinner...

For after church brunch on Sunday, we went to an old favorite and it did not disappoint. The best biscuits in town (served with apple butter)!

We had high hopes for spending the afternoon by the pool, but the weather didn't cooperate. Sad. Instead, we did some laundry and caught up on the DVR.

Low-key but awesome! What did you do this weekend? 
Anything fun or exciting? I'd love to hear!

I'm linking up with Join the Gossip, five30three and Sami's Shenanigans for the Weekend Update and Life on Leroy and The Weekend File for Life Lately.
