On the 4th, the fave and I made the loooooooooong drive home (yes, it took 9 hours everyone, and no, we didn’t stop one million times… it is just that far).
Besides an extremely long. ridiculous, and slow trip to Subway for lunch, we made pretty good time and were ready to eat our faces off when we arrived.
Luckily, my dad and second dad worked all day fixing homemade fried chicken.
And it was amazing. And I ate my face off in bad for you food.
We spent Thursday lounging at the pool before heading back into Lexington to go to dinner with some of our favorite friends- the people who introduced us- Lauren and Scott!
We headed to Nick Ryans Saloon, a newish (at least for me) place in downtown Lexington. I had the shrimp and grits, which was fabbbbbbbbulous. Might be my favorite shrimp and grits ever, which is a difficult feat.
It was really fun catching up with old friends, and I really wish they lived closer.
Friday morning we headed back down to the lake to spend the rest of the day in the pool. It was a million degrees outside so a couple of cold beers really did the trick.
It was a fun trip home, but I’m glad to be back in Richmond and back to a healthier routine of eating and moving around at the gym. Hopefully this week the weather will stop trying to kill all the plants and I’ll be able to go for a run outside that’s not at 5am!
How was your 4th? Did you spend time with friends and family?
Have you ever had homemade fried chicken?
