A bento box. A bento box with a slider in it. A bento box with a slider and sweet potato fries in it. This is just the sort of oddball thing you can expect dining when dining at Cowfish, a Sushi Burger Bar with locations in Charlotte and Raleigh, NC. Weird, absolutely. Genius, I think so. It's quite the perfect spot for my parents to dine out. My mother, always complaining that she has no one to eat sushi with, and my father, who doesn't go a day without a burger. The menu at Cowfish is exhausting extensive. If you can't find something to eat here, you're not human. Here's the kicker: the food is good! For first-timers like myself, you can't go wrong with the bento box. A little snack of everything. And I'd also recommend the lettuce wraps because I never skip an appetizer. For the more daring, Cowfish boasts "Burgushi," which is burger in a sushi roll... I didn't get that far, but believe me I'll be back!

A novel idea,

Pretty Wedding Details

Another wedding, come and gone. My cousin married his high school sweetheart and best friend of 8 years this weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was a beautiful weekend of events that I just loved being a part of. I was lucky enough to be asked to take pictures at the Rehearsal Dinner and now have roughly 700 photos to go through! I look forward to reliving all the fun that was had. Some of my favorite things about the wedding were the bright green accents, the beautiful estate where the reception was held - The Sutherland, the adorably delicious meatball spaghetti appetizer, and an assortment of sweets.

Congratulations to Wes & Ellery!

I feel like I've been waiting for this for a long time... someone to do something whimsical with golf-inspired accessories. And why not Kate Spade? It just feels right. Country Club must-haves include:

Back on Campus

Time flies. 5 years is the amount of time I've been out of college, and it's really hard to believe. A bunch of my friends and fellow classmates were back on campus this weekend to relive those golden years and it was fantastic. Our school combines all the alumni together on one weekend, so not only were us 5-years out on campus, but the 10-years, the 15-years, etc. all the way up to 50 years! Saturday night felt like one of the best wedding receptions I've ever been to. I fit in just about everything I wanted to see and do on top of the drinking and dancing. Hung out at Pi Phi, took a walk through campus, bought a t-shirt at the bookstore, sat front and center for the class picture, ordered a bucket of beer at the diviest bar in town, visited Peeler - the insanely beautiful building I spent my nights painting in the studio, and ate 1 of everything off the menu at good ol' Marvin's. It was a weekend that solidified the fact that I'm going back every 5 years without a doubt.
