Deployment Diaries #13

Another fun weekend, another weekend closer to Graham being home! My weekend started with a delicious key lime pie cupcake from Smallcakes in Williamsburg… … and a great mid-century modern find from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. ...

The most delicious weekend.

My longtime friend, Heather, came to visit this past weekend. She arrived on Friday, and left on Monday. By the time she had left, I likely weighed 10 lbs. more. I’ve enjoyed each of the visitors I’ve had this summer, but since ...

Tupelo Honey – Virginia Beach, VA

Disclaimer: Our meal at Tupelo Honey was complimentary (we did pay for the cocktails), but as always, all opinions are completely my own. Tupelo Honey officially opened it’s 11th location in Virginia Beach on Monday. And I’m really, ...

Deployment Diaries #5

It was a CRAZY busy weekend! The week was a little chaotic. I spent most of the week cleaning the apartment in anticipation of my mom & mother-in-law’s visit. They arrived Thursday night, & left Monday morning. Not wanting anyone to be ...

Restaurant Review: Lé Mu Bistro

A few weeks ago I told you guys all about the Lé Mu launch party. And this weekend the pop-up finally opened. Every time I’ve mentioned their pop-up to someone, I get the exact same question: what is a pop-up? Here is an awesome infographic ...

The most delicious weekend we’ve had in Virginia.

You guys. I probably gained 10 lbs. this weekend… And it was worth it. We’re getting close to G’s deployment date. We started this year out with the mindset of “we need to save money”, “we need to buy a ...

A Pretty Perfect Weekend.

So, this weekend was pretty awesome. It started with a trip to MacArthur Center in Norfolk for a beauty products shopping spree. I bought most of Lush’s new Easter bath bombs & bubble bars, and more make-up from Sephora. How cute are ...

Lé Mu Bistro Launch Party

Sav & Elise were some of the first friends we made here (thanks to the dog park). We bonded over our really cute dogs, and our love for really good food, and the first time we hung out, we learned that Sav’s plan was to one day open a ...

  Saturday was one of those days where I just wanted to be back in Arkansas. The weekend was all about running & Beverly. For the past few years, Beverly & her son ran the Little Rock Marathon-5K together. This year, loads of friends, ...

Restaurant Review: Venture Kitchen & Bar

I’ve heard good things about very few restaurants on the peninsula. And I hate that. I hate having to cross the dreaded Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel if we want to have a really good meal. But, that’s life. We could move to the other side of the ...

Restaurant Review: Salt

A couple of weeks ago, Coastal Virginia magazine offered a daily deal ($50 coupon for $25) to Salt, a restaurant I had heard good things about. They were only offering four of the deals, so I quickly snagged one, and made a reservation for Graham ...

Restaurant Review: DoG Street Pub

I’ve decided that I need to stop putting so much stock into Yelp and Urbanspoon reviews when I’m trying to decide where we should go for dinner. Choosing a restaurant has become a ridiculously stressful experience. I’ll see or hear of a ...

Restaurant Review: Circa 1918

Last Thursday the Air Force Technical Sergeant promotion list came out, and Graham was on it! I’m going to be braggy for a minute, because I’m super proud of him. Everyone he’s spoken to has tested for Tech 5, 6, even 7 times. ...

Our 3rd Anniversary

We celebrated our 3rd anniversary on April 23rd, and it was a perfect evening. I finally got around to making a proper sign, so we’d have something nice to hold up than a piece of printer paper. We don’t have my pretty blue wall to pose ...

Restaurant Review: Kero Sushi

Graham and I love sushi. It's always been one of my top choices for a date night. When we moved to Virginia last summer, we had a few mediocre dinners out, so I was scared to try any of the sushi places I had bookmarked.We got good news last week, ...

I love weekends.

I saw this image on Pinterest the other day, and it made me happy. As much as I love social media, I can understand how it can cause depression in some people. I follow people with amazing social lives & the coolest careers known to ...

Restaurant Review: The Barking Dog

One of the first restaurants Graham & I went to when we moved to Virginia was the Barking Dog. I am a suck for a good hot dog and the Barking Dog more than exceeded my expectations. We've been several times and have yet to be disappointed with ...

Restaurant Review: La Parrilla Mexican Grill

When I first moved to Arkansas in January 2011, I never imagined it would become the home to some of my favorite restaurants. But the food scene in Little Rock is surprisingly excellent. Even more surprisingly, one of my favorite Little Rock ...

Restaurant Review: Water Street Grille

This was quite possibly the most mediocre dinner I have ever had. Ever. For starters, when the waitress asked how everything was, we were actually honest and told her something was awful, because it really was. I've never, ever done that before.I ...
