Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
My weekend was filled with a few fun items. For starters, Justin and I kicked off our weekend with a lovely dinner at Casa Ludovico. It’s always delicious. We enjoyed a few cocktails with our bread basket…
Then an arugula salad with sheets of shaved parmesan (topped lightly with olive oil and balsamic. Oh my gosh.):
Justin enjoyed the Penne alla Norcina: penne pasta with spicy Italian sausage, a touch of cream, aged parmesan, and a splash of truffle. Rich and delicious:
Of course, I couldn’t stray from my tried and true classic: the special pizza. Grilled crust with chopped cherry tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and fresh basil. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I dream about it.
I also took a trip to my T.J. Maxx (as usual), and picked up an amazing statement necklace – this is the orange version. I picked up the lime green, but they also offered it in hot pink, blue, and white. It was only $24.99 – can you believe it? I can’t wait to show you how it looks in an outfit post…
We celebrated my dad’s birthday (which is actually today) – we made pulled pork tacos and enjoyed some key lime coconut pie from JJ Gandy’s. Again – one of my favorites.
If you have never had key lime pie, you have to taste the version at JJ Gandy’s. I typically don’t like key lime pie, but this is one of my favorite desserts of all time. It is so fluffy and creamy. Excuse me while I go drool for a minute just thinking about it. We enjoyed the pie, and I was able to take a few minutes to snuggle with Theo and Stuart. My sweet little boys…
And because it’s his birthday today – Happy Birthday Daddy! I love you (and even though I’m not this small anymore, I’m still a daddy’s girl)!
What were you up to this weekend?
