Spring Frolics was a ton of fun! Per usual, Davidson’s fraternity court was covered in bathing suits, sunglasses, music, bands and beer.
The SAE house was disgusting as usual
But Matt had fun reliving his college years.
So did Larbs and her friends!
I wasn’t in the mood for drinking (still dehydrated…and I don’t drink beer from cans!) so I just enjoyed the sunshine and company.
OKAY, okay, I had a few sips of Matt’s Yuengling!
And I got a free sno cone – light on the syrup! I mostly ate the ice for coolness
I didn’t really need a snack all afternoon and was content – rare for me! Must have been the sun.
The blister comes into play when Karen (who was up visiting because it was her 35th reunion from Queens and she knew a lot of Davidson alumni as well) and I took some of her friends on a walking tour of campus. I got a very bad blister from my flip flops!
For dinner, we made plans to go to our (my at least) very favorite Davidson restaurant: The Brickhouse. They have TONS of exciting beers on tap, and I couldn’t wait to have my favorite…
The Brickhouse Red!! It’s a local brew and is only $2 a pint! This went down waaaay too fast. We were waiting on the rest of our group to arrive for about 45 minutes, so I sipped away.
So I felt a calling to have another with dinner. This was the Rogue Hazelnut Brown. Mmmmmm!!! Hazelnut coffee in beer form. I didn’t intend to drink all of this (was going to share) but I think I did ..
For dinner Larbs, Karen + I split a pizza, so I ordered a simple salad to start. With an awesome ginger balsamic dressing.
We ordered the Mediterranean Pizza. The Brickhouse has the most amazing pizza crust. It’s chewy, doughy and golden brown. SO good…..
I intended to have 1 piece, which turned into 2 when it was so good. And then at the end of the night our friends passed down some pepperoni and veggie pizza and I had a third. That crust is hard to resit!
Goodnight to all!

That crust looks so doughy and crisp! I’d love to try a hazelnut beer too, yum 🙂
Looks like a lot of fun, and delicious looking pizza. Cute dress too!
Emily W. says
That pizza looks AMAZING! And your outfit is adorable! Love it!
Hahaha, what an awesome time!
Yummy pizza! Your dress is super cute, by the way!
Looks like a fun meal. Pizza is hard to turn down after 2 slices…glad you enjoyed it. By way a black dress for a beautiful spring day??/ Don’t you got any cute spring dresses? (cue the blond girl in one pic with the adorable slower-print dress)
I meant to say but why, not, by way
and I meant flower-print dress
That hazelnut beer sounds amazing! I’m going to have to see if I can mind that around here!
Mmmm. Rogue beers. I like to get half Hazelnut Brown and half Chocolate Stout. Tastes like it sounds -> just like Nutella!
This is my first comment, but I <3 your blog! A friend sent it to me since I have similar oatmeal eating habits 🙂
Michelle Hisae says
College life, for sure. 🙂
The visit to Davidson looks as though it was a ton of fun. I always seem to get blisters so I know how that feels… ouch!
I am so jealous every time you go to this pizza place!
That pizza looks delicious–what are all the toppings?
Alisa - Frugal Foodie says
Ah to be young! Looks like fun. Love the dress too!
Sarah (lovINmytummy) says
Funny how beer, from a can or a pint glass, kind of just ruins all those plans for restraint! That pizza looked SO worth it, though.
Ellen M says
looks like a wonderful spring day!
I don’t drink beer from a can either. Not only do I usually spill it on myself, but I find I can taste the metal in it!! That hazelnut brown sounds delicious…
Looks like a fun day – I think my hubs would love that restuarant…. mmmmm beer…. 😉 I also love that dress! Mind sharing where it’s from? I love things that are easy to wear like that!

Hey Kath, I enjoy the photos of all of the yummy looking food you post. I just don’t know how you can call your diet as a whole, “healthy” and explicitly “real food.” It all looks yummy, but the majority of your calories come from carbs (oatmeal, bread, cereal), That might be an okay diet for a young runner, but as you get older all those empty calories will catch up with you (diabetes!). Our bodies evolved eating animal protein, the fat that came with it, and the few berries and greens we could rustle up (with some nuts thrown in there!). Real foods are things you can kill with a spear or pick off of the ground. They don’t come in boxes. The more of THAT you eat, the better. 😉

What a fun day!
Love the sunglasses! They’re so cute!
Sounds like a fun day.
weight and meditate says
Mmm, those beers look fabulous and so does the pizza!
Leah @ Simply Fabulous Now says
Looks like a fun time with your Sis & friends…
Do you tell the people you come in contact with at these parties about your blog?? Just curious.
You’re making me nostalgic for a college visit.
looks like a fun day! glad you enjoyed the events and dinner. that pizza does look really good.
Shannon (The Daily Balance) says
that pizza looks delish! What a fun Saturday!!! 😉
you look so lovely in that dress and sun glass Kath! 🙂
I’m a new reader to your blog and just want to tell you that you’re doing a great job…makes me want to start my own! Anyway, I wanted to ask where you got your dress and do they have it in other colors? It’s so cute and summery!
What a great way to spend a Saturday evening! That pizza looks so yummy! And I absolutely LOVE your outfit – is that necklace from Africa?
I have a question for you about PB2. I just got a few samples in the mail and was wondering what you decided it works best in, and how much to add to whatever that is? Also, I’m confused on the nutrition information. Is the given information 2 tbsp dry, or is it 2 tbsp AFTER you mix it with the water?
Love the dress and sunglasses! Super sassy!
that dress is so cute!
Thanks everyone! Dress is from Target. Not sure about other colors, but they did have some stripes.
Do you just have to find things to pick at?? All of my spring dresses are nice and lined – I wanted something casual that would show dirt since we were sitting in the grass most of the afternoon and beer was flying around us. Come on J!
Sausage, goat cheese, olives, sun-dried maters, peppers??
That may be YOUR perception of “real food,” but it’s not mine. My perception includes anything that is minimally processed without chemicals (grinding flour is a minimal process) and is as close to its whole food state as possible while finding a balance with flavor and palatability. If someone else expedited the cooking process but I technically could have done it at home (i.e. yogurt, milk, combining things into cereal), I still consider it a real food. As Michael Pollan puts it, “anything your grandparents would recognize as food.” Our grandparents could have made granola. Or yogurt. Or whole wheat bread. I strive to eat real foods 90% of the time.
Most of the carbs that I eat are whole grains – Great Harvest whole wheat bread, whole grain cereal, oats, wheatberries. Whole grains are plants. There is absolutely nothing “empty” about calories from whole grains – they have thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folate vitamins, the minerals iron, magnesium, and selenium, plus fiber. Oats especially are a superfood for all of their health benefits!
While I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a paleolithic diet, it’s a bit too restrictive for me.
Leah @ Simply Fabulous Now,
If it comes up in conversation, sure!
Yep – from Africa.
I found PB2 to be best in yogurt and cereal with milk. I haven’t tried much else though. Nutrition info is for the powder. The nutrition label of things always has to be what’s INSIDE the package – they can’t assume you’ll prepare it a certain way.
rebecca (unintuitiveeating) says
wow @ stephanie f. kath is like the healthiest / most balanced / whole eater ever. period =).
on that note, kath, i just want to say that i strive towards the balance that you have… eating in a kath-way 90% of the time, and indulging a bit the other 10%, knowing that it’s all good in moderation. you are inspiring!
Shaun is jealous of the Yuengling! It’s his favorite beer but you can’t get it west of the Mississippi 🙁
And Chels – really!?!? I don’t like it much at all!
brickhouse! cool! I went to a place called brickhouse in sacramento, I wonder if its a chain? It was good!
Ooh, that pizza looks delish! I will have to try that next time I’m up in Davidson. 🙂
$2 pint! Woah! Glad you had fun 🙂
