Felix in the Daffodil Patch

The Daffodil Patch is looking glorious this week! We took Felix for a walk past the daffies, and decided to take advantage of the beautiful backdrop and take a few portraits.

Happy much??

Happy spring!

Cherry Trees with Felix and Tacos

It's cherry tree week here in Athens! In keeping with tradition, Ben and I headed down to the cherry trees for a picnic lunch. We met up with Brad and Carl and tried Taco John's new street tacos. They are GOOD!

Unfortunately, the weather hasn't been cooperating this year. It's been cold, and VERY rainy this week. Today's the only day with a decent forecast, so we went even though the trees aren't in full bloom. We brought Felix!

Felix's first trip to the cherry trees!

Oh, hi!

Cooking Club Brunch

Emily hosted a cooking club brunch this morning! She provided a decadent Bloody Mary bar.

So springy!


Summer made ricotta blintzes with a blueberry topping.

Of course, we had mimosas too!

Miss Charlotte enjoyed a plain OJ.

Yumi made amazing shrimp and grits.

Valerie and I both made stratas! Hers was spinach and cheese.

Mine was caramelized onion, red pepper and goat cheese.

Stratas! Emily also made a big batch of bacon to have as a side.

Nancy made raspberry cream cheese muffins. They were bursting with berriness!

We locked Charlotte outside for awhile so we could have some adult time.

Della Zona

Mom, Mer and I have been going to the monthly wine tastings at Village Bakery. Tonight, Dad and Pete joined us and then we went next door to Della Zona for dinner afterward. I had never eaten there. It was so good!!! Mmm, fresh doughy pizza!

It was Moms Weekend at OHIO, and we were seated next to some OHIO football players and their moms. Dad wouldn't leave them alone ("Are those your moms, or your DATES!?") so we ended up laughing with them a lot throughout the night.
