<– that title is facetious, I’m actually living with my cousin and her fiance and they are taking very good care of me! But this was my first week surviving solo without Adam and Webster. On a related note, look at the stickers I just bought!!!
We had a fantastic, fantasmic, over-the-top wonderful vacation, by the way! We hung out with some of our favorite people, ate some of our favorite things, and got to walk up and down the beach fifteen times, all the while exclaiming how beautiful the water was.
I brought back the best ever cold brew (Grady’s) from New York.
Plus my new favorite cup, from St. Thomas!
I got back to Charlottesville from New York on Sunday night so I didn’t have time for a grocery trip this week which meant I mostly ate a bunch of (tasty) nonsense. Like cafeteria food that I carted home. Chicken tenders + fries + seaweed salad.
A Beyond Burger with hot sauce and tomatoes.
And Wegman’s hot bar. I pretty much got every chicken and vegetable option from the “Asian” section.
One night my cousin threw a dinner party and cooked an honest-to-god, grown up meal – eggplant parmesan and garlic bread (plus a fancy cheese plate and homemade chocolate chip cookies).
And Thursday I finally made it to free pretzel night at Hardywood because my work hosted an after-hours journal club there.
