Living back in the 1700 and 1800's was no joke. Walking around in the town square was like taking a BIG step back into the pages of History. I definitely felt out of place at times because it was primarily white ppl (which I suppose made sense because that's just how it was back in the day). Either way, I intended to make full use of my day there to re-live history, as well learn more about how they lived back then---with no electricity, women having no RIGHTS whatsoever, and horse carriages as a means of transportation.
The food was really delicious...I guess that's all I really have to say about the Tavern. Great food, uneasy ambiance...
Homemade bread with softly churned butter
The sandwich was seriously LARGER than my entire face. I got a turkey, lettuce and tomato sandwich with the most zesty, tasty infusion of herbs and spices in my coleslaw (the yellowish looking thing sitting to the left of my sandwich). Even the chips were crunchy, crispy, and flavorful!!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Look at Sarah. Look how legit this pic woulda looked, IF ONLY she didn't have her iPhone in her hand. Aggh, she ruined it with the insertion of technology in the photo.
And here we are, about to be beheaded! Look how happy we are =) Hey, if death were to come...there ain't no avoidin' it. Might as well go out lookin' fresh!
Then we ended the day with a sweet carriage ride. It was $20 for each person...and it was only a 15-minute ride. Kinda pricy but it really added to our colonial experience!
Anyway, that was just a quick re-cap of my weekend. I am so excited! Tomorrow is Sarah's birthday and we are going to Clarendon to celebrate. I can't wait! I have been starving myself for the past week so I can fit into the dress I bought 2 weeks ago (BAD CHOICE! I should have known never to buy a dress for a big event TOO early on, because guess what? Us girls' weight fluctuate soooo crazy! What fit me 2 weeks ago, I'm strugglin' to zip up now. I told myself, fuck it! I'mma wear the dress if it kills me! I don't care if I have to wear that dress with only the zipper half-zipped up. I'm going to rock it no matter what!) I hope you all have a lovely weekend planned ahead.
I'm sooo excited about the SEPHORA VIB event as well! I'm planning to take FULL advantage of the 20% off this weekend. I already have my list set up of things to get. I will do an entry really soon of the products I plan to get and maybe a mini-review, too. :)
