I’m a little late on this because I didn’t have time to share last week’s but better late than never, right? Last Saturday was such a fun day packed with some great Richmond adventures so I couldn’t resist sharing! Let’s dive into the food:

I woke up early on Saturday morning because I was speaking on a panel at a small business conference led by Sharvette Mitchell. Sharvette and I met a few years ago speaking on a panel together, so it was fun to get to catch up again! Before the conference, I had a bowl of blackberries.

Lately, I’ve just been eating fruit for breakfast. I’m not sure where my regular breakfast cravings have gone but I’m just going with it. I spent the morning hanging out with these lovely ladies!

After a very inspiring morning, I stopped by my grandma’s place to say hi and then came home to have lunch. I was super hungry and was thrilled to remember that I had leftovers in the fridge.

Alex and I had gone to The Mill at MacArthur on Friday and I couldn’t finish my mountain of pasta so I was excited to have some left. P.S. The Mill has tons of awesome vegetarian options and the service was fantastic. We’re both excited to go back again soon.

I finished up a few Christmas errands and then got bundled up for the Tacky Light Race.

I basically snapchatted the entire race so if you’re following me (Username: HeartVegetables) then you probably saw that the race was so much fun. All of the lights distracted me so the race went by really fast! Afterward, my friend Carin and I stopped at Zoe’s Kitchen for dinner.

I was still freezing from the race so I knew I needed soup and I can’t miss out on the basil pesto hummus. (I do have a basil pesto hummus copycat recipe if you want to make your own!) I love Zoe’s Kitchen if you can’t tell.

Once I got home, I took a nice hot bath. We recently renovated our bathroom so it felt extra luxurious. A bunch of you have asked for “after” photos of the bathroom renovation so here’s a shot of the new tub, subway tile, and floor! (As you can tell, we’re not totally done with the floor- we need to make a threshold!)


And that’s a wrap! It was a delicious day!
