Dinner For Twelve- McNitch House

Happy Tuesday!

I’m excited to share the May dinner for twelve pick…my husband and I went to the McNitch house.   Located in Fourth Ward, it is in a gorgeous Victorian home, and is the place to experience true Southern hospitality.

It is pricey, so we made sure to save this one for a big celebration…my birthday and promotion to Ruby ambassador with Plexus.  I am now a GEM! This means I have a pretty large team, get a nice bonus, but still do what I love…helping people get healthy!

The tables were adorned with fancy china, silver, and bright colors.

I got a glass of Malbec, my hubby got an OMB copper, and we placed our order.  Before our first course we were served this little number…fruit and bacon.  We knew we were at the right place!

I got she-crab soup, and Daniel got the artichoke bisque.  Both of these soups were basically off the chain.  I would come again simply for the soups!

And if soup wasn’t enough, we were told to pick another starter course!  I went with the crab cake, and he got a salad.

A little raspberry sorbet to cleanse the palate before the main course!

Daniel ordered the surf and turf.  The steak was incredible.  At least the tiny bite he allowed me was incredible.

I got Dijon crusted rack of lamb.  It was good, but not my favorite.  I think I would go with the duck next time.

Dessert.  We couldn’t decide, so they brought us all three!  A coconut flan, lemon tart with basil ice cream, and a chocolate mousse with coffee ice cream.

I got this rose.  He got the bill.

We had a really amazing time.  The staff waits on you hand and foot.  I felt like a princess, and loved every minute of it.  We went early, and had the place to ourselves for about 45 minutes.  We learned the history, and enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the gardens where they grow herbs and vegetables.

We will go back!

Stay tuned in June, when I visit Cork Buzz!

#37in37- update 6

Its time for an update!

My 38th birthday is fast approaching, and I think I may need an extension on the last few 37in37 items!  Maybe I can call it 37in38andahalf.  That would give me through November to knock these last few out!

37in37 #26:  Go to a concert with my husband.  We have not been to a concert in soooooo long.  I think since we were dating.  We went to the I Love the 90s tour in Greenville with another couple.  I saw it was coming to Charlotte in September–highly recommend!

37in37 #1:  Ride the Fury at Carowinds. I tagged along with our church youth group a few Sundays ago to knock this one out.  It was pretty scary…but I think I will end up riding it again this summer.   We have season passes, and Brody is tall enough to ride everything this year!

37in37   #18:  Pick berries.  This was a fun family outing…you can read more about it in THIS POST.

37in37   #36:  Get fitted for a bra.  Did you know that 78 percent of women are walking around in the wrong size?  Most women wear a cup too small and a band size too big!  Do yourself a flavor and get fitted!

37in37 # 14:  This was supposed to be smoke a hookah, but that is gross, so I turned it into go on a pedal tour.   Because pedaling around Nashville,  drinking beer,  and singing at the top of your lungs is not gross.  It’s awesome.  🙂

37in37  #34:  Hold a handstand for 10 seconds.  I am folding on this one.  Yes, I promise I will keep practicing.  But my best is about 8 seconds and I am so good with that.

IMG_2745

37in37  #8:  Walk in the Crohn’s and Colitis Walk I switched this one out as well, because it was too far to travel. I decided to switch it to another charity, Tunnel to Towers.  My husband and I raised $200 and climbed the Duke Energy building…50 flights of stairs.  You can read more about Tunnel to Towers by checking out THIS BLOG POST. 

Not much left…thanks for giving me a little leeway and letting me extend my journey!

Have an awesome Saturday!  Check out my teaching schedule and come do some yoga next week with me!    xo

 

 

May Favorites

It has been a while since I posted about some of my favorites….Here are 7 things I’m digging right now…

IMG_2747

  1.  Dill pickle cashews.  I snagged these from Target.  I am very thankful they come portioned out…they are that good!

IMG_2567

2.  Hot pink nails.  I love bright cheery colors this time of year.

IMG_2720

3.  Stuffed avocado from Viva Chicken.  I sub the quinoa for feta.  because feta makes it betta.

4.  Plexus body cream.  This stuff is amazing! It has spirulina algae and activated charcoal, so I use it on my body as an all over lotion.  I can see the sun spots on my legs and arms starting to lighten up!  Here is the best part…I started putting a drop in my hair before I blow dry it.  I don’t even have to use a straightener, it leaves my hair so soft without being weighted down.

5.  I totally stole this “cereal” idea from Low Carb Traveler, one of the blogs I read.  I switched it up just a bit though.  I use a 1/2 cup of pecans, a 1/2 cup of  cottage cheese and 1/4 cup of blueberries.  This power breakfast can carry me to lunch, through my own workout, and teaching classes all morning!

6.  Boost Lip Balm.  Totally in love with this….It came in my Birchbox and I will be ordering again very soon!  It gives your lips lots of shine and just a hint of color.  IMG_2746

7.  Vanilla seltzer water.  Yummmmmmmm.  This is my new “dessert” every night.  This same brand makes an orange vanilla that tastes like a dreamsicle.

I would love to hear from you!  What are your favorites right now?
