This past weekend My mom, her husband, and I went to DC to visit my brother. We are from Northern VA, but my brother has lived in the city for about 10 years.
I thought I would share some fun amazing places we went while there.
Breakfast – Tryst on 18th Street
Um WOW! The food was amazing. The environment fun but relaxing. Of course the Mimosa’s were so good.
This restaurant has been around for 20 years, and for good reason.
I had the Avocado toast which comes with hard boiled egg, radishes, and a spice blend that’s amazing. Read More »
This past weekend my cousin came to town. We had planned her visit for a month but things kept coming up. So having her in town was so fun! Our first adventure was to the Iron Gate Winery in Mebane. I was happy and surprised there was a winery so close to me. Plus tasting 11 different wine’s for $7 is a plus! Read More »
We are BIG advocates of Staycations. For the obvious reason, it’s cheap and we don’t have to find a pet sitter.
I thought I would run down a few idea’s to make your staycation the best!
1. Research your area for things to try / do. For example my area has a Kayak rental place on the Haw River that’s affordable and hours of fun! We did this last year, packed a picnic and hit the river. Read More »
I love going to VA and visiting my Cousin and Aunt. They live in Midlothian (outside Richmond), which is an awesome town with great food and shopping! Upon arriving my cousin and I headed to First Watch for brunch. Sadly they don’t serve alcohol, but that ended up being a good thing because we had a busy day planned. I got the Elevated Egg Sandwich, which was AMAZING! My cousin got the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, she said they were SO GOOD! Read More »
My husband and I did not plan to move to Carrboro. We were pleasantly surprised by the town. Back up a little we were looking for a place to rent and came across our little country house. Slowly we ventured further and further into town. We tried the locally owned restaurants and found the food was amazing. The little shops have many local artists. All in all we love our little town. So I thought I would share a few of our favorite spots to visit.
Start your day checking out the old railroad cars at Cross Ties! Have a good meal in a fun location. There is ample parking and you can walk around to some cool shops. Hands down a fun place to go. Read More »
