Bottomless pits


I've been busy visiting several doctors over the last few weeks (co-pays really suck), and my computer is slow as can be, so I haven't had the time to blog.  Nothing overly exciting has happened that I can recall.  Let’s see:

*Daniel took me out for dinner during Norfolk Restaurant Week.  We went to a little Italian place called The Vineyards.  It was really quaint and cozy. 

Our waitress was adequate and the food was pretty tasty.  Here’s a shot of our 4th course:  NY Cheesecake with raspberry sauce for him and fresh cannelloni for me!

*I hung out with a few Sorors on one of the hottest evenings of the summer and we had a bonfire!

We roasted hot dogs and sausages, made S’mores, drank wine, and played Taboo!  It was really nice to get out of the apartment and spend time with lovely women (sorry for the dark photos--I've got a new phone--but no flash).

*Yesterday, my family celebrated my nephew’s 12th birthday!  Quay stated he wanted Red Lobster, so I met him, my brother and father around 4 to eat some grub. 

My older brother, Lil' Charles.

Of course, I immediately gobbled down a Cheddar Bay biscuit as soon as they were brought to the table—they’re just SO good!  I had already given myself a limit of 2 once I found out where we were going---if I hadn’t, I would eaten the whole basket alone.    :o)

Dinner was great!  I don’t get to spend too much time with these 3 guys, so it was nice to catch up.  My nephew ordered a meal that included lobster, shrimp, rice, an entire plate of French fries, and something else.  HE ATE THE ENTIRE THING!  As well as a few crab legs from my dad and brother, several biscuits, and his birthday ice cream from the restaurant.  Afterward, he said he was still hungry.  Who knew 12 year olds could eat so much?!?

Pop and the birthday boy.
Afterward, I decided to stop by my grandmother’s house to say hello—I hadn't seen her in about a month.  I also wanted to give her a framed picture from Daniel and I that sat in my back seat for the last few weeks.  While visiting with her, my little brother stopped by as well.  (Long story short, when I came back from my honeymoon, I found out my dad has another son, Blayden.  He is going through chemotherapy right now because he has cancer.  He just turned four).  He’s really warming up to me now—he immediately walked up to me and put his arms up for a hug!

*And the only other thing I've done out of the ordinary is that I gave Tierra a bath--FYI, yes she is talking to me again.

I guess that's a nice recap of the last few weeks.  I hope you have an amazing week!
