I’m a little bit obsessed with subscription boxes at the moment. There’s something about getting a surprise in the mail that I just love. I’m also currently lamenting my college days apparently because I got a discounted Pijon box in the mail and loved it so much I ordered 3 more. The box is meant to be a care package for college students and although I’m not currently in undergrad anymore, I got all nostalgic and wanted to pretend.
It has been extremely chilly in Charlottesville this year and while I admit that I can’t complain nearly as much as anyone in the north east I needed to go somewhere warmer. Fortunately for me, my friends Katie, Chris, and Patrick all live in Atlanta and I decided to capitalize on the opportunity to head south. I called my friend Shea who lives about an hour north of me to see if she would like to join. Once we hashed out all of the details, we headed down south for the weekend. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t much warmer in Atlanta than in Charlottesville last weekend but I managed to have a great weekend anyway.
The one thing I wanted to do while there was go to the aquarium. I’ve always wanted to visit and this weekend I got the opportunity to.
After the aquarium we went to Monday Night Brewing to taste some beer. I’m not a huge beer drinker but it was fun to check out somewhere new (and the owner is a UVa alum!).
On Sunday we went met up for brunch at Highland Bakery. I ordered peanut butter stuffed French toast (hey, it was my vacation). I was shocked by the size of it though and could only eat a few bites.
After brunch, the girls and I spent the rest of the day lounging around Katie’s apartment. Shea and I had a long drive back home ahead of us on Monday and Katie had to prepare for work.
After an excessively long drive, we finally made it safely home to the bitter cold in Virginia.
