We had a fantastic weekend with VABeau's Mother and Grandmother. After a 7 mile run and a fresh hair cut, I picked the ladies up at the airport Friday afternoon and the three of us spent a relaxing afternoon together. When VABeau arrived home we hit up Red White and Bleu to check out the latest cheese and wine arrivals before heading home to our own cheese plate and wine happy hour. We then met VABeau's aunt and uncle in Arlington for dinner at Willow. I used to live near Willow and cannot believe we never ate at this amazing restaurant. The wine list was extensive, the food was delicious, and the service was incredible. My beet and goat cheese salad is just one of many examples of the fantastic food this restaurant produces.
Saturday morning started with a walk to our local Farmer's Market. I am continually surprised by all of the new vendors that appear throughout the year. The latest surprise was Mama's Donuts. These tiny donuts are fresh, warm, and delicious. The perfect Winter morning treat! My favorite part, however, had to be watching the donuts being made. I was mesmerized by the donut machine. The rest of Saturday VABeau and I relaxed while his mom attended a sorority reunion event. We watched the Ides of March which was a fantastic movie. It was so well made and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. We both loved it.
Sunday morning we attended church where VABeau was appointed as as trustee in front of the whole congregation (I am so proud of him!). After church we took the Indiana ladies to the airport but not before they gave us a little piece of the Superbowl in Indianapolis. We are now officially ready for the Superbowl with our t shirt and hat! After leaving the airport we made a quick stop at District Taco. Our pastor mentioned this former food truck, now restaurant, during his sermon. So of course we were immediately craving it! I now know what all of the hype is about. VABeau's breakfast burrito was delicious and my huevos rancheros could not be beat!
That's our weekend in a nutshell-a lot of eating and quality time with family. How was yours?
