we are all about parties at casa de skatie. my mom, sister, aunt nancy and alyssa came in town this weekend. i hadn’t been with family since my sister got engaged back in september so it had been too long. they got here on friday night and i had ina’s infamous potato leek soup warming on the stove and an inviting table scape to dine at all ready! it was such a fun and relaxing weekend and i wish it didn’t have to end. why DO all good things have to come to an end? after dinner we stopped in to see my friends singing/playing at a restaurant bar place in midtown and grabbed some coffee from our local fave, red eye. my sister was also craving crepes so we stopped in at crepe vine and inhaled some yummy-ness. fruit, whip cream and nutella…how bad can that be? 😉
saturday we went to thomasville and walked around their little town center and hopped in and out of antique shops and little boutiques. i took them to my favorite little place, Goodfinds, and we found some treasures of course.
we ate dinner at kool beanz cafe in midtown saturday night and had a delish meal. their menu is always amazing and everything we’ve ever had has been so great! scott said their gnocchi was as delicious as the kind he ate in italy. hello. that says something.
we grabbed lunch today at pitaria and walked around lake ella and then bon voyage back to jacksonville 😦
it was such a fun fun weekend and i loved having them. come back and visit again!
tallahassee is finally cold enough for boots, jackets and scarves. i love love love it!!
