Hey there and Happy Monday to you! Hope your week is off to a great start and that you had a great weekend!
The birthday celebrations continued into this weekend. I met a friend for margaritas at Carburritos in Davidson on Saturday evening. Their blackberry lime margaritas are so good!
On Sunday, the fam came into town and we went to brunch at Vivace. I know, I know… we eat there all the time! If you’re looking for a nice brunch in Charlotte without dealing with hustle and bustle of going into Uptown then I highly recommend Vivace. Their menu is always great, as is the service.
We all got their brunch deal, which includes an appetizer, entrée and bottomless mimosa for $25. We each got a different appetizer- calamari, meat tray, Brussels sprouts, and deviled eggs. My favorites were the Brussels sprouts and calamari!!
I have really tried to “broaden my horizons” when eating out because I typically order the same types of things (breakfast/brunch = egg white something, lunch = greek dish with grilled chicken, dinner = salmon). So this time I tried to pick something new and ordered the shrimp polenta as my main course. It had the most amazing roasted tomatoes and was great.
I also thoroughly enjoyed the bottomless mimosas. I may have enjoyed them too much because let’s just say I had a nice, loooong nap when I got home
Thanks so much to my mom and John for coming to Charlotte to celebrate my birthday!!!
So can we talk about how Christmas is only a week and a half away? I keep saying I’m going to finish my Christmas shopping ASAP but so far that hasn’t happened. I have today off of work so that is my priority.
Well, I’m off to the doctor for a follow-up about my knee. I’m kind of nervous about it! I will be sure to give an update tomorrow.
Have a great week!
What did you do this weekend?
