What is with July?! I feel like my life is moving way too fast and I'm just barely hanging on. Even on a weekend CB and I have no plans, we end up stuffed to the brim with plans! I normally would love this, but I feel like I haven't had the chance to catch my breath in over a month. This weekend will be no different, as we head to Austin for CB's birthday. I'd normally be asking you guys for all of the suggestions on where to go, and more importantly, what to eat but I think my goal for the weekend will be to somewhat unplug and just focus on hanging out celebrating the man I love, just the two of us!
Over the 4th of July we went to VA Beach to spend an extended weekend with my momma! We flew in Wednesday night and flew out the following Tuesday. I grew up in Richmond, but oddly enough, didn't grow up spending Summer in VA Beach. We were more likely to drive to the Outer Banks, Hilton Head or my favorite place on Earth, Disney World. Bobby, her now husband has a fantastic beach house just a few blocks from the ocean on 78th street. It's been fun getting to go to the beach when I go home to visit, instead of the high school reunion that I'm not a fan of at all in Richmond. High School just wasn't my thing, and by "my thing" I mean it was pretty much 4 years of torture. College was definitely my calling in life!
We kicked our trip off right with $3 Bloody Mary's and brunch at Mahi Mah's right on the oceanfront!
As any good marketing strategist would, I rebranded immediately and called mine "popsicle margaritas" instead. They gave out 3 total trophies (there were only 5 contestants) and I was not awarded one. I'm not going to cry CONTEST RIGGING.... but.... CONTEST RIGGING.
