A day late....

So we had a pretty exciting weekend that you may have seen glimpses of if you follow me on Instagram. Most bloggers post about their weekend on Monday...but I was not that prepared so here you go!

Friday night was pretty low key. Just had a night in like usual.

Saturday morning we went to the Irish parade/festival in Church Hill (which is a historic neighborhood in downtown Richmond). It was a lot of fun seeing everyone in their outfits, playing the bagpipes and watching the Irish step dancers.

Nutsy even showed up to the party ;) (he's the Flying Squirrels mascot)

While we were there, we stopped by St. John's Church. This is where Patrick Henry gave his "Give me Liberty, Give me Death" speech. AND ironically it was on that day we were there (March 23rd) 1775. Oh and it is still an active church to this day!

We got back and watched some VCU basketball (both sporting black and yellow).

(sorry phone camera quality not so good in reverse)

We drove around to look for some more houses/townhouses for rent.

We went to Hogshead Cafe (again) for dinner. I love this place...I could brag on it for the rest of this post but I will just spare you and tell you that you need to go there if you visit RVA! I got the chili barbeque nachos and they were out of this world and probably enough to feed 2-3 people!
We rented Argo on Redbox. I would highly recommend watching it if you haven't seen it!

    And then Sunday we were greeted with this:

How was your weekend?

Oh and by the way:
  • See what Sara had to say about Designer in Teal over here!
  • I am still participating in the Mood Board link-up today just with an old post!
  • Remember that small giveaway I mentioned? Well it has gotten a lot bigger. Be sure to come back next Monday to enter!

You've really captured the highlights of the festival and RVA history. Saturday was such a beautiful day, I was in shock for half of the snowfall on Sunday. For one, those flakes were huge! And for two, how does that happen?!
