Weekend - Supper Club

We had a nice little weekend and I hope you all did too!

Friday, Tara came down to the house and we went to a neighborhood girls party.  Twas fun!

Saturday morning lil Mills had a spa appointment.  He was not pleased.  I had to pick him up to take him in the place because he refused to go in.  Mind you, he had never even been there before.

He made out fine and he looked a lot better when he was finished!  They cut his hocks off on the backs of his back legs and I was not pleased.  Hair grows back...

Saturday night we got together with one of Kevin's cousins who I had never met.  They've lived in town since 2011 and we had never gotten together.  We had the best time with Ron and Cristy.  First they came to our house for drinks and appetizers and then we tried a new place for dinner called Stone Mountain Grill in Ballantyne and it was really good!

Sunday morning, Kevin and I decided to try Elevation church out and Steve Smith was getting interviewed.  For the out of towners, he plays for the Panthers.  It was a wonderful interview.  The church experience was definitely interesting and not what we are used to but we both said we would go back.  Anyone else been to Elevation?

Brunch at Cantina was next on the agenda.  WHOA it was good.  Poached egg in each side of the avocado, topped with melted cheese.  

We went home and got ready for supper club with my work people.  We hosted an afternoon get together instead of our usual Thursday night.  We watched the games and hung out.  I'm going to share the recipes tomorrow!

Mills had a friend come over.  Bowser joined him and they had a big time together!

Mills loves some beer.

Tell me about your weekend!

Poached eggs inside avocado??? You just named two of my favorite breakfast foods :) Looks like a fun-filled weekend! I've been feeling ready to go back to church regularly, or at least to check it out, and this post was a good "sign" that I should at least try it.

our friends go to Elevation and love it. They just opened the Lake Norman branch and we are going with them this coming Sunday.

Aww poor Mills! Riley has had a bad haircut a time or two when trying a new place but it does grow back! Glad he got some friend time as a reward. You were a busy bee this weekend!

When I lived in Charlotte during my college years, I attended Elevation pretty regularly! It is still one of the things I miss about being in Charlotte. The experience was definitely different from my small, hometown Baptist church that I was used to, but I really enjoy listening to contemporary Christian music and Steven Furtick! Even now, I will pull up his sermons and watch them on Sunday mornings when Stephen is sleeping, because he works nights.

Mills still looks very handsome!! I've never been to Cantina for brunch, but I just added it to my list. Yum!

Being Catholic, church is church. Not matter where you go. A service in NYC isn't all that different than one in Texas or even Mexico. So when I hear people "trying out" new churches it sounds so weird and such a different world! But it must be a nice experience.

I've never been to Elevation but I love to watch his videos posted online. My little sister just applied for an internship at Elevation. Fingers crossed she gets it and I can visit!

I am a crazy dog mama when I drop Camden off at the groomers, absolutely no hair cuts! But it's so nice to have a clean puppy. Brunch at Cantina = top of favorites list!

Is Elevation, Steve Furtick's church? He came to one of my work events and seemed so nice.
