Lynsie and I’ve been mates because the 12 months I moved to Charlottesville. Individuals used to assume we had been sisters at ACAC!

We’ve all the time shared a love for Ben Rector’s music, and that is the fifth or sixth (we will’t keep in mind!) time we’ve seen him collectively. The primary time was in our small Jefferson Theater right here in Cville and we’ve liked him ever since!

Once we arrived for a late lunch on Friday, mother had hen salad, chips and grapes for us to get pleasure from!

Plus an excellent yummy angel meals cake topped with whipped cream and berries!!

As a music lover, Dad got here with us to the present! His first Ben Rector live performance. He stated it exceeded expectations : ) 

Dinner at Bull Metropolis Burger

Dad led us to Bull Metropolis Burger the place we had an off-the-cuff dinner earlier than the present. 

The proper night for out of doors eating. 

We break up fried pickles, two children of french fries, and a juicy burger that tasted selfmade (in one of the simplest ways)

We walked over to the DPAC and had a couple of minutes to kill, so we strolled by way of American Tobacco to indicate Lynsie the realm. 

The present was unimaginable!! We had been so shut, and Ben introduced his humor and leisure as he all the time does. I like how the viewers sings alongside. We didn’t need it to finish! 

I didn’t get dwelling till 11 and wasn’t asleep until midnight! Within the morning, mother, Lynsie and I walked to Cup-A-Joe’s for espresso and muffins. After which we hit the highway for the trek again to CVille and all of our kiddos. We talked nonstop all 6.5 hours within the automotive! 

Different Spring Issues

Carter Mountain Sundown Collection

The primary of the Thursday night time sundown concert events at Carter Mountain began final week. Thomas’s mates are within the band The Root Cellar Treatment and we went as much as watch them play.

It was 88 levels and the right day for a sundown! I overlook out beautiful it’s to dwell within the mountains generally. 

We had a couple of Daring Rock ciders and shared this pizza for dinner. 

Celebrating Child Violet!

My good friend Erica, mom of Fern (Birch’s due date twin!) is anticipating child #2. One other botanical title is becoming a member of the household – Violet! LOVE her title! I wore all issues purple in her honor <3 

We had a child sprinkle for Erica at Cake Bloom (extra floral themes!) 

I had a soccer recreation after and wasn’t planning to drink any bubbly – till they supplied a NA rose! I’m so completely happy to see NA drinks popping up extra on common menus. 

Downtown Ice Cream

Birch and I walked downtown for ice cream after college on one other beautiful spring day. Spring isn’t my favourite season as a result of I don’t love the unpredictability of the climate – 57 someday / 85 levels the subsequent. Nevertheless, while you get an ideal heat spring day – there’s nothing prefer it!

All The Baseball

Mazen is within the thick of baseball season. Since transferring up a stage to the Majors in Little League this spring, he has apply or a recreation 3-4 instances every week. A giant step up from the once-a-week sports activities groups we’ve had till now. You’d assume that it was an excessive amount of, however I believe it’s so nice to have a lot workforce time that it’s higher than ever! (It has made weeknight dinners a little bit of a problem although. We’ve been consuming at 5:00 earlier than his 6:00 video games begin). 

Smoothie Paint Colours

Ought to we paint our kitchen island this smoothie pea inexperienced!?

I’ve been learning paint colours with depth. Listed below are among the contenders that I ordered Peel n Stick sheets from Samplize

It was all enjoyable and video games till Birch ripped them off the wall and crumpled them – ahhhh.

The Bebedero

I needed to share this drink from women’ night time at The Bebedero! It’s known as “Donde esta mis pantalones?” and was a mixture of mezcal, lime, and tropical fruits with smoked thyme!
