Happy Birthday Layne

this past weekend Jared and took a trip down to Raleigh to spend the weekend celebrating two special people 

Friday night we went to dinner with Caitlin and Alyson 
then had a few friends over to Caitlin and Layne's house for wine and gossip 
so much fun to catch up with old friends 
and getting to finally meet my fur-niece, Penny, who is just too cute for her own good 
she's a 17 week old golden/corgi mix 
Penny loves a good selfie as much as the rest of us
Saturday was super busy 
first we headed to brunch at a new restaurant that opened in North Hills, Another Broken Egg 
they were  doing a "soft opening" to train their staff and chefs 
luckily our friends, Katie and Austin, had the invitation and reservation so the food was on the house
just had an optional donation to the charity if choice for that day 
and the food was incredible!
[sorry no foodie shots of the meal, we all inhaled our dishes]

after brunch we went to the NC State vs Miami basketball game 
the Smiths have season tickets to the games and invited us to tag along
it was so fun...even though we lost 
the really neat part is that they celebrated the 1974 NC State championship team 
they were just too darling watching their highlight reel on the jumbotron 

after the game we grabbed a late lunch at a local NC State hotspot, Player's Retreat
just good ol bar food and lots of university history :)

then it was time to set up for the surprise party we were hosting for Layne 
her boyfriend, Mat took her out for dinner so we could get everything together 
#partypenny before the big surprise
so much love in one picture!
met these fabulous people 7 years ago in our dorm Freshman year of college
Sunday was just too gorgeous for words
we had lunch on the porch of our old stomping ground, East Village before loading up and heading back to Kernersville 
then we had a very lazy day watching House of Cards 
yes, we are addicted to the show and yes, we wasted a perfectly gorgeous day in bed
judge us. 

sadly, its back to snowy/wintery weather mix and chili in the crockpot 

Happy Monday!
