Y’all, let me just tell you that this weekend was perfect. For my birthday, DG got me tickets to The Lion King at DPAC in Durham. I am really feeling Durham these days so we made a night of it with dinner first. Saturday, we went on a walking tour of Historic Oakwood in Raleigh. And Sunday, my BFF was in town so we met for brunch and mimosas before she flew back to Tampa. I paused at one point and thought about how much more I’m enjoying my time now that I’m not being pulled in a gazillion different directions.
Friday night, we headed to Basan for dinner prior to the show. I tried Basan the first time for my birthday and was so impressed. It’s such a convenient restaurant for DPAC shows but also for Bulls games. Their sushi is delicious and if you’re there the night of a show, they give you 10% off your tab if you show your tickets.
It’s a short walk from Basan to the show, but we got to catch a pretty sunset over the American Tobacco Campus.
I’ve mentioned before on here, but I cry a lot during The Lion King. So, we got our picture taken prior to the show starting before my make up got smudged.
How awesome that they give you 10% off your bill if you show your tickets…I need to see if places around the theaters here will do that!! Such a great weekend with yummy food included! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

Sounds like a wonderful weekend!!! You look beautiful in all of these pictures too. I would like to see the Lion King too, I think that it's still playing here. All of that food looks delicious too and those historic homes are gorgeous. I feel like those homes make me want to go back in time… 🙂 Anyway, glad that you had a fun weekend and have a great day!

Aubrey went to that show too! She loved it. I keep meaning to do the Historic Oakwood tour but I keep forgetting. Oh well, maybe next year!

Sounds like it was a fun weekend. Raleigh sounds like it's a great place to live!! I have never been but my friend moved up there and has been asking me to come for a visit. I went to visit her when she was in Charlotte and loved it.
