You can totally tell when school is back in session – my posts tend to drop to weekly! I’ll try to be better about that, but no promises.
Smoothies are making a stronger comeback this week. In the winter it’s not always my fav thing, but truthfully, I just feel better when I have them.
Other homemade eats.
And dining out.
Started with tofu harvest curry and brown rice on a lunch date with my guy.
Two runs and a weight circuit at the Y.
Definitely been a busy week. With school back in full swing, the days are once again flying by.
Luna has been having a grand ole time, and she and Kuma definitely get along very well. They’re both cute as can be.
Thursday after work my guy and I went for wine and apps and then shopping.
Friday after work I went back to the mall to exchange something (got the wrong color) then stopped for Thai before heading over to my boyfriend’s house for the night. We watched Game Night, which was actually a lot of fun. Can’t really go wrong with Jason Bateman.
Saturday morning was a lazy one and we eventually headed out to brunch. We went to The Bee and the Biscuit, which neither of us had heard of, but had vegan brunch options so off we went. It was a bit of a hike from his place, but holy crap – it was awesome! Place was packed and there was an hour wait, but well worth it.
They have a ton of outside seating, an outdoor bar, fire pits, and handed out blankets and games. He and I sat under a blanket on a bench right in front of a fire pit sipping on our drinks! The restaurant itself is a big farm house and was ridiculously adorable. Really loved everything about it.
Then we were off to the Eastern Shore and Cape Charles. First stop was Buskey’s. Same cidery that we love in Richmond has a tasting room a bit closer to home. We sat and chatted with the woman working there. She happens to be a teacher in VB but also waitresses at a different restaurant when it’s open during the tourist season as well as Buskey’s. Does make me sad to think that so many of our teachers have to work multiple jobs.
Then we walked the block or so over to the Cape Charles Distillery where we had a couple drinks, met another couple (she and I have the same first name), and spent some time talking to the (slightly odd) bartender. But overall, very fun and neat place.
We were going to hit up Bee and the Biscuit again this morning with our kids, but the weather was horrible and the rain would’ve negated the cool fire pits. So – we’ll try again next weekend!
Today was all school work, all day. That’s okay though. It topped off a really awesome week.
MY YEAR OF LESS
Umm. I shopped. Not crazy obsessively, but it seems like I ran out of a lot of personal products (makeup – even tho I don’t wear much – and skin care stuff) all at the same time. And a watch charger to leave at my boyfriend’s house.
I’m finding it really hard to get back to the groove of my rules. Going to reread the book that kicked all this off to begin with!
