Ahh the weekend is over again & its Monday morning, unfortunately I am back at work after a weeks staycation! Hopefully Today won't be to rough me.
I spent most of the week just catching up on life after a busy May & putting a lot of effort into Stella Jewelry! Then finished the weekend with Relay for Life, celebrating my friends officially becoming
old 30 & of course fathers day!
While at Relay for Life we were lucky enough to hear Superbowl winner Mark Zerzlich speak about being a Cancer Survivor. Originally his doctor told him he would not be able to play football again. Mark vowed to not give upon his dream & refused to let cancer overtake his life. Such a great story!
The little cutie on the right talked me into some new arm candy! Seriously she is a little hustler for charity!
Saturday night called for a lovely dinner at a local steakhouse to celebrate the ladies birthdays! I opted for stuffed shrimp filled with crab, scallops, herbs & bacon. They couldn't have been more delightful. Then we hopped around a couple of local bars for some drinks & ended the evening at local favorite, Metro for a little dancing.
If you are ever in Roanoke & are looking for a fantastic Martini or Sushi I always suggest Metro. The restaurant is fun modern spot in our historic market area.
I am not a huge raw fish fan but seriously cannot get enough of their California Roll & their Crab Rangoon!
For Fathers Day we took a quick day trip into the Blue Ridge Mountains to Floyd Va. Famous for its hippy vibe, artisan galleries & music. The town is very small, like literally one stop light small. Yet is full of culture & amazing food.
When in Floyd, Natasha's for brunch is a must, the ingredient's are all local & fresh. They have the BEST bacon I have ever had in America. It is perfectly sweet & saltly & never crispy! I hate crispy bacon!! Instead of Coca Cola they have what is apparently "Real Cola", the gluten, caffeine & preservative free option. I can't say it was bad, but it wasn't the refreshing soda I was hoping for.
How cute are those chocolates? Adorable! My Dad loves the beer selection in Floyd, they have all kinds from all over world & let you create your own six pack! Easiest Fathers Day gift ever :)
I hope everyone had a great weekend, spoiled their Dads rotten & remember fondly those Dads no longer with us!
