Hi friends! Today I’m sharing our pre-Mother’s-Day festivities plus some kid photos of me. Haha.
Mom Loves Bagels
With plans to fly out Saturday morning, I woke up extra early so I could visit one of the best bagel spots in NYC to get a dozen bagels for mom. The spot – Murray’s Bagels Chelsea. My mom loooooooves bagels! What better place to get bagels than NYC? I passed several other bagel spots to go specifically to Murray’s. They are that good.
I went just when they opened – 6:30am.
There was no line. Woop!
Naturally, I bought an extra bagel to have for breakfast. I had to eat something, right?
The bagel was amazing. I don’t even know how to describe it. Like some mediocre bagels can almost have this stale-taste to them. And the texture is denser than it should be. This bagel was nearly fluffy inside with that same bagel-firmness on the outside. I don’t know if this makes sense, but trust me. It was delicious!
Soon enough, it was time to get a car and head to the airport.
It was raining, but luckily the flight wasn’t delayed.
I left cold NYC to arrive to…
…not and humid Charlotte.
It was a nice change of scenery. From gray clouds to green trees galore. And we just talked about how great greenery is for you!
Healthy Charlotte Lunch
I had planned to hit the road straight away, but I got caught up organizing my things and what not. So, I opted to have lunch in Charlotte. This meant I got to visit two of my faves: Living Kitchen for lunch and Not Just Coffee for caffeine.
They got rid of my favorite salad when they rolled out a new menu on Tuesday. Or at least, they rolled out a new menu on Tuesday and my fave wasn’t on it. Though they did add some fun new items. I tried the Chopped Cobb Salad, which has a refreshing dill dressing and “bacon” made from mushrooms!
For road trip fuel – Not Just Coffee. I enjoyed an oat milk mocha whilst finishing yesterday’s blog posts.
Then, Bailey and I hit the road.
The roads were great, and Bailey and I arrived at my parents house in good time.
Family Favorite Dinner in Greenville
We met Sis and Justin at Pita House – a family fave. They surprised me with bubble tea from a new spot in town. Woop! This was passionfruit green tea.
We ordered a few plates and shared them. Sis and I shared chicken shawarma over hummus. We also had falafel and tabbouleh. We had baklava and date maamoul for dessert.
