This past weekend was so. much. fun. It went by way too fast, as all great weekends tend to do. Saturday morning, I woke up in Virginia Beach with my lovely friends Alexa & Holly. Holly and I were visiting Alexa for the weekend and it was so nice having some girl time!

Me, Alexa, and HollyWhen we woke up after a crazy night of Netflix, pumpkin dip, and a marathon of Fixer Upper, we had a lazy morning of coffee and apple slices. Once we got the motivation to put on real pants, we grabbed food at adorable little place called Taste. It was one of those cute little markets where you order at the front but you shop around and look at all the specialty foods while you wait. I love places like this!

salad with pumpkin seedsIt was spinach, arugula, butternut squash, carrots, goat cheese, dried cranberries, and cinnamon sugar roasted pumpkin seeds. SO delicious. I ate every last bite!

After lunch, we went to a local coffee shop for a quick caffeine boost and then we did a bit of shopping. It was the perfect girls day! Later on, I hopped in the car and drove back to Richmond just in time to go to Bottoms Up for dinner with a few friends!

After we were all stuffed with pizza, we grabbed some hot chocolate and went on an Erie Nights ghost tour around downtown.

Overall, it was awesome weekend full of delicious food and great friends! Fall in Virginia is such a wonderful time, I hope it hangs around for awhile!

Have you ever done a walking tour?

(Alex and I have done a food tour in Richmond, a history tour in Charleston, and now a ghost tour!)
