Our Aviator Brewery Adventure

Jay and I decided to have another Living Social/Groupon inspired adventure on Saturday.  This time, we visited Aviator Brewery in Fuquay Varina, NC.  Their logo looked familiar, but upon looking at the list of places where I can find Aviator beer, I’ve never been to any of them nor are any of them in Raleigh.  Unless […]

Another April 29th has come and gone. Since yesterday was a week day and we both had to work, we spread the celebration out over a few days.  On Saturday, we went to dinner at a local Hibachi-style restaurant called Ginza.  We had never been there before, but I had bought a Groupon to it […]

Color Mania 5K in Raleigh

Jay’s 28th Birthday

So last Wednesday was my dear husband’s 28th birthday.  Now, we’re only a year apart again.  Yay.  We both had to work, so we went out to dinner last night at a restaurant called Sullivan’s, which is also where we went for our 1st anniversary dinner.  Sullivan’s has amazing food, but it’s a bit on the pricier […]

(2009, 2010, 2011.)  We also drink […]

Of Sodium, Raquetball & Candlelight

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know.  I missed 2 days of blogging on my blog-a-day goal.  In my defense, I was tired and went to bed early, haha.  Let me quickly recap what I’ve been up to the past few days.  Not that anyone is interested, but that’s life. Jay got back from his training in […]

Of Museums and Movies

Man, I’m bummed that my nice, long weekend is over.  Even though it didn’t go exactly according to plan, I still had a really good weekend.  Since it ended up raining on Friday, Jay and I didn’t end up going to the beach.  Instead, we walked around Downtown Raleigh and visited the Museum of Natural […]
