Week in Review: Date Nights, Salads, and Friends

I'm a little late posting this week in review.  But better late than never, right?

Thursday evening Gramps came to take care of C so Mike and I could head out on a date (first dinner out since the babe was born) at one of our local favorites, Saladelias. They have the best fresh local eats and a great selection of Greek inspired fare. I went with the vegetarian lasagna and this really yummy Greek style kale dish. I've never tasted kale that was amazing!
Of course I missed Caroline the entire time and we were only gone an hour before we came back to see her. 
When we came home Gramps was wheeling C around the kitchen in her high chair as if it were a power wheels car. I think it's safe to say they had fun together.

This is what Mike often comes home to, the little bird taking an evening nap in the ergo carrier. 

I'm back on the vegetarian track.  But eating veggie doesn't have to mean giving up on the Christian Chicken. 
Luckily they make everything to order so my new favorite is Chick-Fil-A's market salad sans meat. It's insanely good- strawberries, apple slices, blueberries, bleu cheese, granola, nuts, oh and lettuce- but that's not too exciting.

We'd had a rough end to the week- Caroline wasn't sleeping well so we were both stressed out from lack of sleep. We got a much needed fancy date night out attending a friend's beautiful wedding. The ceremony was at a church downtown and the reception was at The Cotton Room- a part of The Golden Belt in downtown Durham. Such a gorgeous spot. We had a wonderful time and didn't want the evening to end! 
It's nice to get out of my mom sweatpants once in a while, ha! Wearing heels felt so fancy since I don't think I've worn them since before I got pregnant! 

It's funny how before having a baby we'd enjoy going to a wedding but it wouldn't be that big of a deal. Now that we have a sweet babe the occasion for a date out, and a fancy one on top of it, is soooo rare that we were looking forward to this wedding all week long. I think motherhood makes you appreciate the little things a whole lot more. 

We had dinner with our sweet friends the Rudolphs. Mike and I first met at their house.

We love the Rudolphs, they give us great insight into things.
