Thursday night our apartment hosted its monthly happy hour, this time sponsored by a local bank, and it was the best yet! Cheese, crackers, wine, beer, crab cakes, mini quiches, etc. They were even giving out wine bottle stoppers as favors. To really top it all off there was a drawing for restaurant gift cards, one of which I won!
The Robinsons hold a special place in their tummys for Carmine's, so we took them to the DC location for a surprise dinner Friday night. Matt told them we were going to a ethnic restaurant called Senimrac (Carmine's backwards, clever guy) and they were so excited when we walked up to the front door!
Saturday I remember going to the mall, walking around and reading in the bookstore, but I can not remember what else? Oh yeah, we drove around looking at neighborhoods. We ate leftovers and snacked at home that night.
Sunday was Easter. I helped in the nursery and the others went to the 11:00 service. Afterward we met Hillary, Jeremy and his sister Megan at Brio for a delicious Italian brunch. We amused ourselves by commenting how dedicated we were in celebrating Easter that we traveled all the way to Italy. The Easter Bunny was there celebrating too. Silly us.
Then on to Menchi's for half price frozen yogurt compliments of my employee discount. The weather finally took a turn toward spring and was glorious! (Notice we were wearing coats at dinner Friday night.)
After that, Matt and I must have started to smell bad or something because everyone left. The Smiths drove back to DC and the Robinsons drove back to SC. Haha. No, everyone had places to be and we are so glad they made time to be with us too. Happy Easter weekend!
