Weekend Picturebook: A Little Rock Wedding

S A T U R D A Y 

[a beautiful day for margaritas, guac + tacos at The Fold]

[and for sunning with a few beers at Rebel Kettle Brewing]

[wedding time! gorgeous wedding for cousin Olivia + Sam at Trapnall Hall]

[love my handsome dates!]

[and the southern food was ridiculously on point – fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, crawfish + mashed potatoes and a mini mason jar layered with collard greens, beans + corn bread]

[the only pic with the bride + other cousin Blair at the end of the night, which reminded me of another pic 10 years earlier …]

[girls trip to NYC – can’t believe this was 10 YEARS AGO!]

S U N D A Y   B R U N C H 

Before we headed home, we had one more stop – brunch + beer.

Y’all. Lost Forty Brunch was the best brunch we have ever had in our entire lives. I can’t even begin to describe how incredible every single thing was. I’ll let the pictures do the talking, and let you do the drooling.

[our brunch “appetizer” – fried green tomatoes (yes, again) with jalapeño pimento cheese + skillet cinnamon roll. I’m not a huge cinnamon roll fan, but this was out of this world]

[my dish – biscuits + gravy, which again, were the best biscuits and gravy I’ve ever had. next time I will get a dozen of these biscuits and bring them home with me]

[husband’s dish – a skillet with all kinds of delicious goodness inside]

[WE LOVE YOU LOST FORTY! and yes, of course we got a growler to take home]

Discover Arkansas: Little Rock, Part 1

I’ve officially started on my Discover Arkansas Bucket List. We spent a wonderful Memorial Day weekend in LR with some close friends, and got to visit some family who were gracious enough to let us stay in their home. Though we didn’t get to do everything on our list, we did ate a LOT. [Spoilers: the following photos may put you in a food coma like they did us]

Note: This is part 1. We have plans to go back in July and will absolutely cross the following off the LR Bucket List: Hike Pinnacle Mountain, Eat at Cotham’s + The Faded Rose.

ZaZa’s Pizza – The Heights 

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 2.00.57 PM[We were fortunate enough to be staying with my aunt and uncle who live in The Heights, so a walk to ZaZa’s is always a must on my list]

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 2.01.09 PM[The wait for our pizza was 40 minutes, so of course I decided I needed dessert first – Dulce De Leche Gelato]

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 2.01.18 PM[The taps were mixed up, so Natalie kept getting the wrong beer … which in turn meant free beer … which I wouldn’t say was a bad thing]

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 2.01.29 PM[Finally our pizza arrived, and it was SO worth the wait. First time trying the ZaZa’s Italian and it was delicious]
