Weekend report

Another great weekend in the books with gorgeous weather and time spent outside. I blame the time change for my delinquent weekend update but here's a bit how my weekend looked..

Friday I got off work later then expected and hit so much traffic on my way home, not exactly the start to the weekend I was looking for. Once home I hopped in the shower, poured a glass of wine and got ready for a fun night out with friends. My roommate had some cousins in town so we were eager to get out and show them around a few of our favorite spots in Raleigh. Typical me, I had the hardest time decided what to wear out and ended up taking selfies to send to my best friend for her opinion. Anyone else have the hardest time deciding what to wear? I swear from getting ready for work or even just out on the weekends- it's a major struggle. 

I ended up going with the heels because I felt the boots make my legs look unnaturally short which is hard to do when your only 5'2. 
Outfit details:
Heels: Target, Black leather leggings: Nordstroms (old) Poncho: Madison Boutique (borrowed from a friend) Necklace: House of Harlow

I also decided to change it up before we headed out and made a yummy Moscow Mule. These are my roommates favorite drinks and with her birthday approaching this week, I am thinking a set of cooper mugs are in order. 

Saturday we were up, slightly feeling the after affects of the night before, but ready to head to the NC State vs. Syracuse game. As a Pirate, I can tell you I will most likely never root for State so was pretty upset when they ended up beating Syracuse. 

Next we hopped over to Mellow Mushroom to enjoy some lunch and drinks in the sun. The weather here was absolutely amazing all weekend and it finally felt like Spring out. 

I'm not sure if you have a Mellow Mushroom where you live, but it has quickly become one of our favorite spots. Their food is nothing out of this world but they do make a good pizza, yummy margarita, and have a great beer selection. 

After Mellow we also hit up the new Carolina Ale House near our house. Again, nothing to write home about but a good spot, plus it has a roof top area that we have visited a few times now. 

Saturday night was spent cheering on Duke for the UNC vs. Duke game and I am happy to report a Duke win! After the game the crew headed out for a few drinks but I opted to stay in and was asleep within 5 minutes of my head hitting the pillow. 

Sunday we all slept in a bit before heading to one of our favorite downtown spots- Raleigh Times for a fun rooftop brunch. I've posted about this spot before and I am embarrassed to admit that I have gone once a week since I moved. 

The rest of  Sunday was spent going on a 5 mile walk around our neighborhood and grabbing an afternoon drink at the brewery just blocks from our house. 

Overall it was such a fun weekend and I am so glad we were able to spend most of it outside! 
Here's to hoping this week is just as warm and flies by!

Yours truly, 
Emily Ann

Moscow Mules are my fave! I think a copper mug set is definitely a must. Target has some currenttly. I got mine at TJ Maxx.

Mellow Mushroom is a favorite of ours! Not only do they have great food, but I love all of the eclectic decor.
