Biking Bristow Battlefield

I hope everyone had just as great a weekend as I did here in Virginia. We had perfect weather (i’m talking high 70’s kinda perfect) and took advantage of every second possible throughout the weekend. To keep it quick and simple, I figure i’d just give you a rundown of a few highlights.

Hittin the road!

Without further ado:

1. Panera Bread: Jason and I had Panera not once but twice this weekend. When in doubt and looking for a quick meal, we always seem to end up here. I discovered my new favorite sandwich, the Tomato Mozarella panini. Delicous:)

2. Sweet Lobby: After hearing so much about Macarons lately,  I had to track some down and try them. Last weekend Jason and I stopped at Macaron Bee in D.C. and loved the flavors we tried. So I was sure the Sweet Lobby would also be a hit. We headed over on Saturday and grabbed a box of 6. Well, maybe we went on a bad day, but we ended up tossing half the box:( It’s all about experiences though, right?

3. BJ’s Brewhouse: I’m slowly starting to realize our whole weekend revolved around food. But this place takes the cake, or should I say “Pizookie”, for best food all weekend! Read the desert menu and you’ll totally get that last pun;) Jason and I shared a small deep dish vegetarian pizza and annihilated the Pizookie trio that we shared for desert.

4. Sephora: I wanted to make a pit stop at the mall so I could look for a new foundation and primer. I’ve been using BareMinerals for years, but lately i’ve been looking for something with a bit more coverage.  I tried Estee Lauder DoubleWear a few months ago and loved it… but my face didn’t. After just a few days my face was full on acne paradise. I knew Sephora would be the place to go since they give you samples of whatever you want before actually having to buy anything. I went home with two samples that I have high hopes for: Josie Maran “Matchmaker Serum” in Fair/Light, and Hourglass Veil Mineral primer (which feels like rubbing liquid silk all over your face)!

Bristow Battlefield Bike Ride

Since we had an all day food party on Saturday, Jason and I decided a Bike Ride should be on the agenda for Sunday. We loaded up the bikes around lunchtime and headed over to Bristow Battlefield in Bristow, Va. I haven’t been on a bike in a looong time, so the battlefield gave us nice easy ride. We encountered a little bit of everything on the trail: gravel, sand, small hills, bridges, and a few puddles to chug through. We had a lot of fun and I was glad to get in a mini workout while also spending quality time together.

Bristow Battlefield-9050

Bristow Battlefield-9052Jason’s the BIGGEST history buff, so he loved stopping to read all the historical markers along the way. This is a great place to go if your looking to get active and learn a bit about the Civil War.

Bristow Battlefield-6Our mini adventure was a breeze and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to take in the beautiful scenery. Maybe next time we’ll tackle a more rigorous trail.

See ya later!
