As I said before, Kev, Grace and I took a trip back to my hometown a few weekends ago. It was so nice to be home and enjoy quality family time! Here’s a little recap, which will be split into two parts because you know me. #somanywords #somanypictures
We got in late Thursday night because we both worked that day, and Grace was more than ready to get out of the car and play with her best friend, Nala. Nala, however, didn’t exactly share the same sentiment.
We didn’t do much on Thursday besides eat homemade pulled pork nachos and drink beer. If you’ve been reading this blog for any duration of time, you know that whenever we’re with my parents, the theme is food and beer. This weekend was no different.
For my grandma’s birthday back in September, my aunt got her a Blues brick. She hadn’t seen it yet, so we took her downtown to find it.
It was maybe harder than we expected…
Because it took us quite awhile to find it. We divided the bricks into sections and we all looked for our brick within that section. After swearing it wasn’t there, I pulled up the “find your brick” area on the Blue’s website and lo and behold… it was in my area. Oops.
My grandpa, David, was the patriarch in our family and grandma was so excited to have a family brick represent one of our family’s favorite teams.
Soon it was time for lunch. It was my choice, so naturally I picked classic St. Louis food. Toasted raviolis, a “St. Louis-style” Italian salad and pasta. Gotta love The Hill!
After lunch, we ventured over to our brand. new. IKEA! St. Louis got Ikea last month and I am so bummed I don’t live there anymore. It’s no secret that I love that store and I’m so excited there’s one in my hometown. Helloooooo, Christmas list.
After a very “St. Louis” day, we went back to my parent’s house and watched the Cards win, complete with good beer, delicious wings aaaaaand a lovely bonfire.
Part II coming soon!
