It’s not out with the old, in with the new.
It’s in with the old!
I BOUGHT CLEATS!! Someone else’s soccer cleats for $8. Score!!! They fit perfectly.
Play It Again Sports was awesome!
I also bought a soccer BALL! For 5 bucks! I am hoping that the free play that goes on near my house will be a good match. Worst case I’ll find a buddy to kick around with. Maybe talk our friends into playing.
We tried Goodwill first for soccer gear with no luck, but I did find this awesome Banana Republic microfiber purse for $3!
Surprisingly, a 6-year break and a foot surgery did not affect my touch, which came back quickly –
Matt and I played around in the yard for 15 minutes when we got home. Unfortunately he finds passing the ball back and forth rather boring :( Anyone wanna play with me!?
While out buying sports equipment (he got a frisbee!) we also made a trip to EarthFare for groceries and I had a snack when we got home (plus a few sample nibbles at the store). I even managed to get a little work done for about an hour.
Oikos (coupon!) + ota.bar + the very last of my delicious Charlottesville Raspberry Rhubarb Ginger jam.
Then we headed to Brixx to meet our friends!
Amelia + Kevin were visiting from Charleston 🙂 Wish they lived here all the time.
Caitlin + Jason // Diana + Dan
I skipped the first round but once we were seated I dove into the beer sampler: A Nut Brown from Myrtle Beach, Carolina Strawberry Blonde, Sam Summer, Mecktoberfest (a Charlotte beer!)
I got the spinach salad for the bulk of my dinner. Swapped feta for goat cheese and opted for no croutons
Matt got the bruschetta and I had a wedge. Brixx makes the BEST bruschetta!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s how I learned to like tomatoes back in college 🙂
Matt and I also split a pizza, although I had little less than half. Spicy Shrimp (the best!) and Rustico –
Caitlin traded us a slice of Hawaiian for a Spicy Shrimp. Another one of my favs.
After dinner we went outside to listen to music and I just happened to notice there was a Coldstone nearby. The Huntersville Brixx near Davidson also had a Coldstone next door – I used to drink a beer, eat a salad + a whole pizza and get a big Coldstone every Friday night in college sophomore year! Every now and then, you gotta enjoy the good stuff, but every Friday night is a little much. I think Coldstone is the best ice cream in the world and I only go a few times a year. Tonight was one of them!
I didn’t really need a huge portion though, so Diana and I agreed to share one. Cake Batter + Butterscotch + Oreo. Nothing beats Cake Batter ice crema. Ever.
Licked it clean!
‘Twas an awesome night
Amelia brought me some low country granola bars to enjoy!!! I’m so excited to try them.
