This Saturday was a fun one, although we were both feeling a little sluggish after a stomach bug. I was itching to get out of the house though, so we started the day off with breakfast from Lamplighter. This is my new favorite breakfast.
For those of you that are local, go to Lamplighter and order the Katie. It’s the best. This was eaten with the largest coffee they offer. Give me all the caffeine. After breakfast, we went antique shopping. Or rather antique browsing I guess.
We headed up to Ashland to visit Class & Trash but we didn’t find any gems. We also stopped by Goodwill, but didn’t find anything there either. (It’s probably for the best. We’re spending all of our money at Home Depot.)
When we got home, we worked on the house for a bit, and we didn’t really start to get hungry until after 3:00. (I know, those bagels are huge.) I whipped up a quick kale salad.
By the time we finished lunch, it was time to get ready to go to the City Church Christmas pageant. (Imagine tons of little kids in homemade costumes singing adorable songs.) I dropped Alex of after the pageant and headed to the soft opening of Coopers Hawk Winery & Restaurant in Short Pump.
I was greeted with a glass of wine as soon as I walked in. If only more places were like that. I tried a few different wines but the Lux Meritage was my favorite. It was fun running into Brittany and Alison and I was glad I got to catch up with Christina!
When I got home, Alex and I set up the Christmas tree and drank a mug of hot chocolate.
How cute are these mugs? They were a wedding gift from my dear friend (and former piano teacher) Christine. I think they’re adorable! We listened to a few Christmas songs and drank our hot chocolate while looking at the tree. Doesn’t get more festive than that!
What’s your favorite Christmas song?
