I’m baaccckkk – I’m sure many of you have been patiently waiting for a post after two weeks and I couldn’t think of any better time than a rainy Sunday morning watching Friends re-runs. I’ve been staying busy and marking a lot off my Richmond to-do’s, but work has been insanely busy and the last thing I want to do is get on my computer in the evenings.
I have absolutely been loving Richmond and exploring new places. I keep thinking how much certain friends from back home would love certain places/things to do!
A couple weeks ago I went on a wine tour with my sister and her friends – which, let’s face it after a day of wine, they are my friends now too 😝 I went to wineries I have already been to, but always a great time – the weather couldn’t have been more perfect and we had a bus so were able to start the party on the way out and continue it all the way to the end. I had a blast and apparently danced in the bus (with the others) on the way back home – I may have fogged memory from the evening, but my nephew told me I kept telling him how much I love him. Not sure if that makes me “aunt of the year” or what, but in fairness, I think it is a good thing because he saw me as a nice drunk, not mean! 🤷♀️
The next morning, I woke my nephew up at 10:00AM 🙄 telling him the weather was so nice and asked him if he’d go do something outside with me! He eagerly accepted, which I was surprised because it was so early in his world and we decided to go play miniature golf – which as a side note: is WAY underrated, we had a blast and should consider doing it more often!
The following weekend, I had my niece for the day and at her request, we went to Circuit which is an arcade bar where you can pour your own beers and play games! Kids are allowed until 9:00pm. Brian caught up with us and we played ski ball and air hockey and had so much fun! The only thing we didn’t get to do was Dance Dance Revolution because a grown man wouldn’t let the 10 year old have a shot! 🤦🏼♀️ I had my fun with a couple beers and took Brian and Caroline to Shyndigz for cake afterward!
That evening, I went out with a new friend to a new (to me) taco place, Boka and probably ate way too much, but who doesn’t eat way too much when it comes to tacos? Then we went to the this cool little hole in the wall place, Cary Street Cafe, that had live music and apparently does every night – I really enjoyed it!
Weekend highlights were included, but weekdays have been pretty busy as well – with new workout routines, bocce ball and Taco Tuesdays. No complaints!!!
We are less than a week away from my beautiful friend Kasey’s wedding and I cannot be more excited to head to Atlanta next week to stand by her side!!!
