This week was busy, so I have a lot to share.
The weather was perfect this week, and the Missouri heat is coming, so Brad and I visited Starbucks for the first of several times this week.
I’m still enjoying these beautiful orchids from Matt and Molly’s wedding!
Our lab advisor is coming back soon, so Michelle and I took advantage of what little time we have left and left the lab to get Starbucks!!
….And this happened…. so HOLLA!!
We hit up the Artwalk this Friday and these parking meters were around downtown. You insert money, and it goes towards a local charity! Pretty neat. And they look cool.
Of course a visit to the Artwalk isn’t complete without a trip to The Cup. I got a dark chocolate cupcake with buttercream frosting and it was amazing. (P.S. I edited this picture with the A Beautiful Mess app!)
On Saturday Brad and I went for a run through one of our favorite neighborhoods in town, then negated all the calories we burned by re-hydrating at Starbucks. We have a problem.
That evening we went on a bit of an adventure… to the roller derby! It took us about 20 minutes to figure out all of the rules, but once we did it was really fun! I would like to try it sometime, but I think I’d have to get better at skating.
Brad has been in need of running shoes, so we took a day trip to Osage Beach to the outlet malls, and he found some that he really liked!! Success!
It was nice out, so we found a restaurant on the lake where we could sit outside! (Sidenote: I really love it when restaurants just bring you a pitcher of water so you never have to wait for refills!)
It had been a long time since I’d been to the lake, but I knew we had to make a trip to Randy’s. Andy’s are all over the place and that’s where the tourists go, but there is only one Randy’s and that’s where the locals go!
And last but not least, this is my current obsession. I’m addicted. That’s all.
