Spring is finally HERE, you guys! Well, at least in central Virginia. After weeks of maybe-sunny but freezing cold temps (okay, I guess high 50’s isn’t “freezing”. Sorry I’m a little sensitive!), the sundresses are OUT of the closet.
This past Friday was the first Fridays After Five, a little concert series that runs from mid-April to mid-September. Count us (and the entire town) in!
Saturday morning was the start of a beautiful, hot and sunny day. Going to my happy place, Fly Dog Yoga, wasn’t even a question.
In the afternoon, I joined a bunch of awesome medical students in this year’s NEDA Walk. Since their start in 2009, NEDA Walks have raised over $3 million dollars! By participating in and donating to a NEDA Walk, we helped raise awareness about the dangers surrounding eating disorders and the need for early intervention and treatment. If you’d like to donate, you may still do so here.
The rest of the weekend was just as busy, but good-busy. My friend, Vanessa, hosted a Stella & Dot party. I may or may not have ordered a little something-something. Are you curious?
Sunday evening called for date night. Ray worked somewhere between 80 and 90 hours this week on a hospital rotation, which meant minimal quality time with each other. As in, he said “goodbye” to my sleeping head every morning.
We dined at Red Pump Kitchen, which specializes in Mediterranean, Tuscan and Italian inspired dishes.
How could you say “no” to a pizzette when there is a classic wood burning oven in the kitchen? Three words for you: smokey bacon pizzette.
