I got to spend Saturday with my sister and brother-in-law in Blacksburg.  Saturday morning Amanda and I went and got doughnuts from a local place called Carol Lee's.  It's one of those little hole-in-the-wall places that everyone loves.  We got a maple frosted, chocolate frosted with peanuts, and toasted coconut doughnut, and a cinnamon twist. We ate them all at once and they were delicious!  After that we went and picked blueberries.

After we picked blueberries we went back to the house, "got cute," and met our friend Emily for lunch.  We went to one of their favorite local restaurants and it was perfect weather for sitting out on the patio.  Then it was on to a funky thrift store/flea market sort of place.

Lemon pepper grilled shrimp tacos.  Quite tasty.

Outside of Corinne's, the interesting place we shopped at.

After we were worn out from shopping we went back to the apartment to relax for a bit before heading out on another adventure.  Amanda had asked if I could take some nice pictures of her and Jonathan, so they got a little dressed up and we drove out to some of the fields that are a part of VT's campus.  We jumped the fence with the sign that said DO NOT ENTER and wandered out into the corn field for a little photo opp.  Then it was back to the house where Jonathan grilled out for dinner, followed by Amanda's ice cream pie, and then I headed back to Tennessee.  I'm so thankful that they are close enough to do short little trips like this now!
