I consider myself a shopaholic, especially when it comes to cute boutiques. So when I found Lily Mae’s I was thrilled.
Lily Mae’s is a local owned boutique located in The Factory of Wake Forest. While there are a lot of boutiques in our area, none can compare. They have everything. From clothes and shoes to baby and home goods. I personally do not like to go all the way to the mall and this is a perfect store to get everything I need without venturing out. The prices tend to be on the higher side but the quality of their clothes reflects the price.
The staff is really helpful at picking out gifts and suggesting outfits too. The manager Sandra is so personable and helpful. Plus, they sell things like Alex and Ani and Pandora, and have as good if not better of a selection than the mall. Overall, this is my go to shop for clothes and gifts in the Wake Forest/Raleigh area.
Before we dive into my review of Triangle Pediatrics let me start with some background. I have two children, aged 5 and 7. We have been going to Triangle Pediatrics for a little over a year now.
First off, I cannot tell you how great Dr. Buddy and Dr. Porter are with my two boys. So friendly, amazing with children and so patient. Both of my boys are very skeptical when it comes to doctor visits and we have been to three different pediatric dentists before finding this one and I am so glad we did! I can now take them to get teeth cleanings and checkups without having to anticipate a meltdown.
Secondly, since I’ve become a mom although I hate to admit it, I’ve become a total germaphobe. I’m constantly looking for things that might be a cause for alarm ESPECIALLY when it comes to things involving my children. The office is clean and professional. They recently renovated too making it even better.
Overall, the staff is awesome, the atmosphere is great, and my kids love it. Ultimately making me one happy mamma. I would absolutely recommend for anyone with kids in the Wake Forest/North Raleigh area.
Yesterday, I decided to spend the day in downtown Wake Forest with my grandparents. After spending a few hours shopping and walking around we decided to try out a nearby restaurant, Over the Falls.
First off, the place is absolutely adorable. It’s decorated rustic and provides a very homey feeling as soon as you walk in. The hostess was friendly and we were sat almost immediately, and even our 5 minute wait was just because we requested a booth.
We sat and our waitress was friendly and welcoming. We put in our drink orders which came out within a few minutes. After looking at the menu, I decided on getting the plunge, a roast beef sandwich with pesto, cheese and tomatoes.
We were all very impressed with how soon our food came out, and even more impressed with how good it tasted. It was me, my pregnant sister, and my grandparents, and all of us loved what we ordered. My sister has become EXTREMELY picky about tastes and smells since she has become pregnant, so for her to be so pleased what a great victory in our house.
Overall, the service was fantastic, the restaurant was quaint, and the food was delicious. I think my only complaint of the entire experience was getting roast beef stuck in my teeth. We definitely will be dining here again soon.
One of my all time favorite things about this town is downtown Wake Forest. The cute shops, great restaurants, and quaint coffee shops, what’s not to love? So when I found out about this FREE event, I was beyond excited. Being a few weeks into the summer already, we only have four nights left of being able to go to Wake Forest’s most fun event, Friday Night on White! There’s food, drinks, music, and fun for the whole family. My advice? Bring a blanket, some lawn chairs, your friends and family, and a little beer money. Now let’s look at the schedule;
The bands left are:
June 9th- Bull City Syndicate
July 14th- Big Love
August 11th- Love Tribe
And finally, September 8th- Crush
