Hip Hop and Macarons

This weekend was the perfect mix of busy and relaxing which is definitely my speed. I could never be one of those always on the go people.

Friday night I went over to my parents' house for some relaxed family time and comfort food. My mom made a homemade broccoli & cheese soup and sent me home with leftovers which I devoured savored all weekend long.

Saturday morning I got up as early as I could manage to pull myself from between my warm blankets and headed to Columbus.

I surprised one of my favorite littles at his dance competition where he killed his performance! I caught him warming up for one of his numbers with his duo partner.

It was so awesome watching him dance and seeing such a young person showcase his talent.

After his dance I met up with my friend Natalie in German Village. We had intended to go to North Market but the Arnold Sports Festival was also taking place downtown and parking was non-existent. I blame Hulk Hogan...

We grabbed a bite at Katzinger's Deli, but the party really took place afterward with some coffee and delicious treats from Pistacia Vera.

We had a tasting of macarons featuring pistachio (duh), buckeye, and mocha hazelnut. They were all so good. That almond croissant though--that stole the show...

So much so that I think you need to see it again...closer. This soft and flaky sweet treat was easily just as good as the croissants I have had in Paris.

While still sipping my coffee we walked over to a book shop called The Book Loft which is just heaven on earth if you ask me.

I didn't buy anything but the books really are a steal so I'll obviously need to visit again.

Weekends like this one make my heart happy. And with warmer temps in the forecast I think a pretty good work week is in store too!
