After a fantastic weekend, I'm moving a little slow this morning. We had a spontaneous weekend out with friends on Friday to be followed by a lazy day Saturday. Easter festivities on Sunday consisted of a mid-afternoon brunch at The Southern Gentleman and a family style dinner later that night complete with a smoked ham on the Big Green Egg. It might be my favorite thing that Hunter has ever made on the egg. Ever. I whipped up a batch of deviled eggs and asparagus (Easter staples) and my sister contributed some delightful scalloped potatoes. Needless to say, we ate well!
Today, I'm bringing you some of my favorite links and happenings from across the web, and I'd love to hear how your Easter was! What was your favorite food of the weekend? Share!
A sweet blogger and friend, Mea, had the absolute cutest gender reveal on Instagram this week, and it involved everyone's favorite pastry shop. Seriously, you'll swoon!
Have leftover Cadbury eggs? Don't let me stop you from making a big cup of this today. Eggspresso anyone?
My book club meets this week, and we're reading The Arrangement. I'm ashamed to admit that I just started it yesterday, but I'm intrigued!
I'm in a wedding next week (!!!), and I'm still working on finding the perfect shoes. The wedding is outside as are all of the festivities, so I'm looking for a wedge or block heel. I can't wait to get these in the mail to see if they'll work - business in the front, party in the back.
In addition to the deviled eggs for Easter, I also made this incredible lemon tart. So. Good!
I've been focused on learning as much as I can about blogging and small business recently, so I loved attending Brand Shop last weekend.
Atlanta's first cidery, Urban Tree Cidery, officially opened on Saturday. I joined some other media friends last week for a sneak peek, and I can't wait to go back. More on the blog soon!
The Kentucky Derby is a little over a month away, and I am considering hosting my friends for a Sunday afternoon shindig and the race. It's an easy sporting event to have a party for because it races around 6 PM. Plus, who doesn't love Mint Juleps?
I sent my Smile Brilliant molds off last week, and I can't wait to get my trays back to get my teeth whitening on. Stay tuned!
