Palm, Parade, Mez and Houses

What a wonderful weekend!  The weather was perfect and we had lots of fun plans as well!

Friday night we went to The Palm with Kevin's parents - just the four of us.  It was a really good time.  Have yall ever had their tuna there?  It is one of the best meals I've ever had!!  Kevin has a buddy from growing up that waits tables there so we always request him.  He's hilarious so it always makes for a fun time.  As always, it was good to see Kevin's parents too!  They are the sweetest people!  I'm so bummed I forgot to take a picture - what was I thinking?!!!

Saturday we went to the St. Patty's Day parade just downstairs of our building.  As always, some crazy floats and folks out there!

We met up with some neighbors then went to Dandelion for lunch.  Kevin's buddy Rob came uptown on his bike so we hung out for awhile too.  They had irish dancers and bagpipers come into the restaurant to perform - it was cool!

Then we headed upstairs to get ready.  We met my parent's 'across the street' neighbors (in Maryland) that were in Charlotte visiting for the NCAA tournament for a cocktail at Mez.  It was great seeing them and I loved they got to spend some time with Kevin!  We think some of them had met him in the street at home at some point but not sure!
Sunday we did some errands then Kevin had to show his buddy a condo that he was interested in (yes Kevin does real estate on the side).  Then we drove around and looked at neighborhoods and houses Kevin had found online earlier in the day.  Oh how I dream of a real house.  I'm so over 750 SF.  Oh well!

Back to the grind of this week!  Busy week and I have a work trip so should be good!  Happy Monday friends!  Finally Spring!!!

Love your dress in that last picture! We dream of a house one day too :(
BTW - I heard the parade was 2 hours long?
Can't wait for all of us to meet up!

Looks like a great St. Patty's Day parade!

My husband and I look at houses and real estate a lot too. Someday we'll actually buy a house :)
