First Friday: April Edition

Finally! We had Spring weather for First Friday!

photoTo kick off First Friday, we had the most delicious meal at Gravy in downtown Raleigh.  This time I tried the spaghetti + meatballs (I’ve heard rave reviews about their famous meatballs, so I decided to give it a try).  It was ah-mah-zing!  The portion wasn’t overwhelming, yet I had enough leftovers to make another meal out of it.

Major noms!

It’s not a true First Friday event until we stop + visit the vendors outside The Raleigh Times.  I’ve been wanting a North Carolina shirt from House of Swank Clothing, so what better time to buy one?! (Side note: I should really pay attention next time because I thought I bought a SMALL shirt, but instead I bought an XL!! Maybe it was the wine I had at dinner that impaired my ability to read tags on shirts, I don’t really know). So besides purchasing the wrong size shirt, I also bought an adorable  Durham onesie in pink for one of my friends who is about to have a baby.  I can’t wait to give it to her!

While perusing the various vendors, my eyes locked on to an oh-so-fabulous shirt.  A squirrel shirt of Sir Walter Raleigh (y’all know I have a love for squirrels).  Immediately I thought, I have to get this shirt.  It was a whopping $25.  I wasn’t up for negotiating with the vendor on the price, so I stepped away from that epic shirt.  Looking back, I wish I would have bought it… but I’m confident I’ll see it again *fingers crossed*.

Until next month’s First Friday…

xoxo
