Ever heard of Haymarket, VA??

I am just returning from a GREAT trip at my sister’s in Haymarket, VA. Never heard of it? Neither did I until she moved there. 😉. Come to find out it has a rich history dating back to the Civil War Era. It still has that small town feeling amongst today’s “hustle and bustle” of busy people.

My trip was for two purposes…obviously to visit and catch up with my sister

…and two, to see my brand new nephew!!

20140614-102804-37684283.jpgMeet 3M’s newest member, Gavin!! (born in May)

I was EXCITED to meet him!! My boys are 13 and 7, so it is really nice to see, hold, and smell a baby! No…before you even ask..I’m TOO old and poor to have another kid! Remember…I JUST turned 42!!😉😃😢😁 (I don’t think there are enough emoticons to express THAT!!)

This was a trip SANS children, so even MORE of a reason to be happy!! The weather was not conducive to a mini va-cay.. but I do make the best of it!!

Got to eat some great places and First up….

Lion and Bull Restaurant. It’s a cute pub around the corner from where Mo (that’s my sister) lives.

20140614-110014-39614953.jpg Mo and my mom had the chicken salad on a bed of mixed greens! Usually I’m picky about those kind of salads but this was GREAT!! The right mix of chicken with mayo, onions and celery. #YUM

20140614-171138-61898282.jpgSorry for the bite!!! I had the Buffalo Grilled Chicken wrap (86 the Buffalo sauce). It had provolone cheese and lettuce. Works for me!!!

I didn’t get to run because it was RAINING! (ie NOT conducive to vacations!).

That was Day #1….

Tomorrow…Day#2 and #3 of my visit to Haymarket.
