Sette & Weekend

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was super busy. I taught a chunk and had to do a good deal of work, work to do (unfortunately). BUT, I did still get to spend some wonderful time with Josh, Frank, friends & got in a couple hours at the pool.

On Saturday night, we tried a new-to-us restaurant, Sette.

 Sette 001

Sette is another tasty Dine with Sal restaurant like Long Point Grill and Mustard Seed (someone I know loves Sal & his restaurants ;)).

Sette 002

We went to Sette with our wonderful friends Bryan & Mandi. Unfortunately for us, we arrived to a wait and we were all super hungry! The kitchen was also a little slow getting our food out, but they did apologize a lot for the delay. Thankfully, we had their amazing bread and olive oil to hold us over. This chick may have eaten three pieces of this deliciousness ;)

 Sette 003 Some how, the couples ended up not sitting together, haha. Josh & Mandi:

Sette 004

Bryan and myself (I think I’m eating too many carrots & sweet potatoes…I’m looking a little orange hehe):

Sette 005

When the food did arrive, it was fantastic. I got the Pine Nut Crusted Goat Cheese Salad (and thought of this lovely lady who loves Sal’s crusted goat cheese):

Sette 006

Josh got the Chicken Parm:

Sette 007

Mandi got the Vegetable Lasagna (which I would have gotten if it weren’t for the mushrooms…):

Sette 008

and Bryan got the Eggplant Parm:

 Sette 009

We all enjoyed our dishes, the flavors were great! It is definitely not authentic/authentic Italian- but I still loved every bite and plan to go back!!

Busy week ahead! Lots of teaching (Body Step 80’s Launch tonight!!!) and a busy work schedule. What do you have going on this week?

Alycia @ Fit n Fresh said...

Yum! That looks so good - I've wanted to go to these restaurants since I've seen them on so many blogs lol

This week I have to open every day (boo) but I'm going to OC this weekend! So at least I have something awesome to look forward to (:

Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) said...

Mmmm, that bread looks delish! One of my favorite parts of going out to eat at restaurants is definitely the bread! :)

Anne Marie said...

Looks like an awesome time!! 80s launch sounds like a blast!

Jenna said...

Ahh, bread and olive oil. It usually needs to be taken away from me, otherwise I go crazy!

We've got a week full of packing ahead of us! Only 10 days until the big move.

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Looks like a great restaurant--I would have definitely gotten the lasagna! But everyone's looked good. Glad you got a little time to kick back this weekend. Have an awesome week--don't work too hard ;-)

Paige @ Running Around Normal said...

Sorry work got in the way of your weekend, but I'm glad you were able to get out there and have a little fun, too!
Sette looks amazing. I love goat cheese salads :)

Angharad said...

Body Step 80s?! This better be happening where I live because that sounds like the best reason to work out I've heard in a long time!!

Julie said...

i LOVE me a good mushroom but i think the words "crusted goat cheese" would have totally had me sold. there's just something ridiculously amazing about goat cheese & onions or just goat cheese in general..

hahaha anyways

body step 80s sounds totally awesome :) i hope you dress up circa sara jessica parker in girls just wanna have fun hahaha

glad you had such a nice weekend with the boys!!! deej told me the other day i need to cut back on my orange food intake. it's a good thing i brought canteloupe to work today hahahaha

ktbwood said...

Ahh i need to try that place! Sounds AWESOME!! Body step 80's launch sounds INCREDIBLE! So fun!!!

Kelsey said...

Lauren (Healthy Delicious) said...

that salad looks so good! I love crusted goat cheese... its one of my favorites!

My weekend was amazing. 2 blogger meetups, the ballet, and a long bike ride. I couldnt' have asked for better.

Maria said...

Glad you had a fun meal out!

Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete said...

Your salad looks sooooooo good!!! So does that bread! I love trying out new restaurants and being pleasantly surprised with the food when it comes out. Glad you had a great weekend!

Tina said...

That looks like a good restaurant. Glad you had a nice time.

And 80's and step?? FUN!

PS - I'm Tina and will be at the Atlanta Blogger meetup I know you might be going to. So I've been reading along to get to know you. :)

biz319 said...

You had me at goat cheese salad! That looks amazing, as does everyone else's food - lots of cheese makes me happy!

Having my PIL and family over for a bbq on the weekend, other than that, just work. :(

I am off of work today with plans to make pita bread = fingers crossed it turns out!

The Blonde Duck said...

Now I want Italian!

Natalie said...

your salad looks awesome, as does the sound of your 80s launch :)

My week is BUSY--baseball games, bachelorette viewing parties, concerts at the Botanical Gardens...I hope I have time to sleep! Gotta live it up for summer though. Have a good week!

Holly said...

i love all the workout and cooking action goin' on this blog lately my lady! i would desperately love a fresh loaf of focaccia - pasta/italian i can do without, but never deprive me of bread!

you, josh and your friends are so cute! hope you have a great week lady :)

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather said...

All four of those meals look delicious! Glad you got to have some fun in work filled weekend.

hbobier @ Basil Vodka said...

The print on your dress is super cute! And girl I think you're mistaking orange for tan--you look good!

That veg lasagna looks pretty monumental. It's been ages since I've had a good lasagna. Glad to hear you had fun!!

BroccoliHut said...

Sette looks like a great dining spot! I'm a sucker for anything with pine nuts:)
I am super excited for this week to get going--I'm going apartment hunting on Wednesday! I also get to see Seth in the process as a bonus!

Katie said...

What a fun night! I love trying out new restaurants, especially with friends. I would have had a hard time deciding between that salad and the lasagna!

Good luck with the launch! It sounds like so much fun.

I have three days off this week so I'm going to get some things done I've been putting off.

Kerr said...

I am so glad to hear something about that place. I have never talked to a single person who has eaten there. I will have to add that to the list of places to eat soon!

Lauren said...

Awww, so cute that you guys sat on opposite sides of the booth. We do this sometimes with my parents and I love the change in scenery!
Sette looks like a great place. That salad sounds awesome. Anything with "encrusted goat cheese" and I'm immediately sold on a salad entree.

Krista said...

The goat cheese salad looks awesome! Glad you got to enjoy some play in between the work! :)

fittingbackin said...

Your salad looks wonderful!! So does his parm.... :)

Great pictures - the mixed up couples is hilarious!

So... Did I just infer that you don't like mushrooms? Am I right? If so, how did I miss this?!

Stacey said...

80's that sounds so fun, can't wait to see pics.

We Are Not Martha said...

The goat cheese on your salad looks sooo good!!

An 80s launch party sounds super fun... Hope you're dressing up :)

This weekend I'm planning on packing, packing, and more packing to prepare for the big move!

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) said...

Oh what a great time out..I remember that chain of restaurants from living in SC!

I think it's a SC thing...they are always understaffed and running late on weekends...the wait times are always LONG, i remember those days. Good thing you didnt have a 3 yr old with you :)

You are a teaching machine girl..make sure you're getting some down time!

thedallasceliac.com said...

I love goat cheese on salads! Glad you guys had a great time. Nothing is better than a good dinner with friends.

Holly said...

Oh my gosh....crusted goat cheese?! I'm pretttty much obsessed with goat cheese right now, and crusted just sounds amazing. You really can't go wrong with a good old Italian restaurant, right? Or maybe that's just me? :-)

K from ksgoodeats said...

I was looking at the pictures before I read the captions and I thought, "Hmm...Josh looks different...." You guys switched it up! Arriving to a wait at a restaurant when you're hungry is the worst! Glad the bread basket helped tide you over - best part in my opinion ;)

80's night?! WOOHOO!!! Love 80's! I hope the launch was a big success!

Michelle @ Find Your Balance said...

80's launch sounds fun! This week I'm getting my butt in gear to kick off my next detox program. Lots of work but it's work I don't mind, y'know?

TiffersRunsTX said...

Yummy! Great pics of everything, especially you two! Gorgeous. :D

The food looks amazing. I love plates with a ton of colors on them!

kelley said...

Your salad looked sooo yummy!! I can't wait to see pics from the 80s body step launch!!! I hope you did it up just like you did for my 21st birthday!! Remember that?? hahaha

I love when instructors dress up for class. It's a good reminder that working out is meant to be FUN! Ours had to wear full lifeguard gear for last week's Pump. I think they were a bit mortified :).
