It’s been a while since I’ve given you a life update (well, other than what I’ve been eating) so I thought I’d catch you up with lots of pictures. This weekend was jam packed with activity, so I’m glad that we have today off work! It’s nice to have some time to catch up on some of the house stuff. Basement painting here we come. Anyways.
Friday night and Saturday morning, Alex and I took a class at our church to learn more about their doctrine and beliefs, and to take a step towards becoming members. It was an awesome class and I really love our church.
If you’re in Richmond and you ever want to check it out- let me know! It’s 4pm on Sundays, so you don’t even have to wake up early 😉
After the class, we headed to our first Upward basketball game. Alex is coaching basketball and I’m coaching the cheerleaders! These kids have so much energy, it’s awesome getting to spend an afternoon with them. I probably should have tried to get in a nap, but instead I met Shannon and Adrienne for coffee and then rushed home to get ready for the symphony!
The Richmond Symphony Orchestra was playing Rachmaninoff (one of my favorites!) so I was pretty excited. Before the show, we got dinner at Graffiato, the second location of Mike Isabella’s amazing restaurant. (His other one is in DC.) Alex and I split a few different dishes and every single one was awesome.
We had the Smoked Buratta salad, Cauliflower Ravioli, and the White Pizza with Black Pepper Honey. Lots of cheese! Seriously, each dish was awesome and the service was stellar! We tried to grab a drink at Rappahannock before the show, but it was too busy so we just headed to the Carpenter Theater. The symphony itself was wonderful! (We were a million rows back- hence the blurry picture. But it was still really cool being there!)
On Sunday morning, Alex and I made breakfast sandwiches while we read the morning paper. I attempted to recreate my favorite breakfast sandwich from Lamplighter and I got pretty close!
After breakfast, I headed to gymnastics. I hadn’t been in a little while so I’m very sore today but it was a fun time. Christina and I had fun playing around on the tumble track, shooting videos.
The rest of the day was spent on house projects, church, and cooking a few new recipes. (So excited to share a new recipe with you later this week!)
