Happy Sunday friends! We started the day with this breakfast of eggs, toast and banana. Cream cheese on Irish Soda Bread tasted just like a cinnamon raisin bagel!
Yesterday we took a day trip up to Harrisonburg for our friend Emmy’s birthday party! We got there a little early so we could explore a bit and have lunch. Since our party was at the Discovery Museum, we ate across the street at Clementine’s.
They had a great selection of healthy options, and I went with a kale salad and cup of chicken chipotle soup. Plus a few of Mazen’s chips!
Matt ordered pork tacos that he loved.
After lunch we walked around downtown (which wasn’t that easy with all the snow/ice/frozen slush) and ended up over at Three Notch’d, a taproom by our brewery here in Cville.
They had 2 beers that were brewed there in H-burg, and I loved both. I don’t remember their names – but one was a smoked wheat (I think) and the other was a heather beer that tasted like a pumpkin beer! The Hydraulion Red is my favorite all-around beer in Cville these days.
We played at the Discovery Museum for a while before the party started. They have a real ambulance inside customized for kid play. M loved that and the John Deere!
Once the party started all the kids did an art project with paints that hardened when cooked. The recipe was equal parts self-rising flour, salt, water and food coloring.
They painted with Q-tips and then each paper got microwaved for about 18 seconds and they came out hard and dry! So neat, and a great rainy day project.
Mazen fell right to sleep on our hour drive home. He had a blast!
For dinner we put grits in the rice cooker so they were ready when we got home, and had those with fried egg and sauteed kale. A little hot sauce for kick!
It was a lighter dinner because I went to Glow with the Flow at Fly Dog Yoga!! Power vinyasa is here, y’all. In a heated room. To rockin’ music. With peppermint mist at the end. It ticked nearly all of my boxes for the yoga studio I’d love to make a part of my weekly routine. It’s still in pop-up stages now at the Shops at Stonefield, but I can’t wait to see what the studio is like when it officially opens somewhere in Cville. I still miss Y2 Yoga in Charlotte everyday.
Afterwards we had happy hour prices at Burton’s, and I shared a zucchini app with Naomi along with a glass of red. Good times!
What did you do this weekend?!
