Campfires + the Short North

Weekends are relished a little more with each passing week now that I am in the thick of things at work. 'Back to School' has been tucked away until next year and we are quickly approaching the end of first quarter.

My Friday nights are typically for catching up on sleep but this week I made an exception to hang out with Corey and his family at a local campground. It is prime campfire season and I'm not one to turn down an epic s'more. Or should I say, s'mOREO. That's right--toasted marshmallow and a Reese's cup all smushed between a golden Oreo. 

Before calling it a night, we kept ourselves entertained like children by tossing packets of flame colorant into the fire. I swear these pictures have no color filters!

Saturday morning after work (my part-time job) I drove to Columbus to visit the bestie, Natalie. 

She took me to my new favorite Columbus food spot, Arch City Tavern.

The parmesan truffle fries are an absolute must. 

We split an order of those babies and both went for sandwiches with a side of brussels sprouts. I had a cuban (the best I've ever had!) and Natalie had a salmon sandwich which was seasoned and cooked to perfection.

The sprouts are fried (but not breaded) and well worth the bump in price for a side item. I was pleasantly surprised at how incredibly delicious they were.

Afterward we grabbed coffee and browsed the Short North before hitting World Market, Target, and Ulta. I scored a new mixing bowl, measuring spoons, and a few makeup items. Side note: my bank account should be thanking me right now that I don't live near a World Market.

A day with my best filled with good eats and a little retail therapy was just what this girl needed. I'm off to one of my little's football games before going to see my family and spending the evening with my love. I hope you also enjoy your Sunday!
