The Triangle

 Last weekend, Ryan and I had a chance to get away for a quick little trip. My family was in town and graciously offered to watch the boys while we went away for a night.

Not wanting to go too far away, and having traveled north to D.C quite a bit, we decided to head south.
Raleigh-Durham area is about 3 1/2 hours away. 
So we decided to head to the Triangle.
(Raleigh-Durhan-Chapel Hill)

We had no plans really. Just to shop and eat and spend time together.

We did wander around the Sarah P. Duke gardens for awhile. It was beautiful outside and Ryan was able to get some good ideas for some landscaping.

We wandered around downtown Raleigh. It was during their K-9 3k there were tons and tons of dogs and owners walking around.

I am not going to lie. It was a little weird. You could barely walk down the streets, due to the amount of restaurants and bars throwing tables on the sidewalks so people and their dogs could eat.
So, we basically just dodged dogs the whole time.

But we did eat. A lot.

 And it was glorious.

We randomly found my favorite coffee place AND my favorite cupcake place in the same area.

It was like Minneapolis and Nashville combined in Raleigh.

It provided the best breakfast ever.

We also ate a ton of Asian food.

I could eat some sort of Asian food every single day.

It was also glorious.

The trip was such a nice little break.

We came back feeling refreshed and missing our little men.

Shopping, good food and time with my Husband. 

I could not have asked for a better weekend.
