Yesterday was an absolutely perfect day, a perfect day at the farms!! I woke up early and took my time getting ready for the day. I showered, shaved my legs, did my hair, did my makeup, and wore one of my favorite shirts.
With a smoothie in hand, I headed to Virginia to meet up with Katy and Becky.
As Becky had never picked strawberries and it had been years since Katy had, I knew we had to make our way Hollin Farms in Delaplane, Virginia.
The weather yesterday morning was just beautiful. Partly cloudy skies, warm air, and a cool breeze. It was perfect strawberry picking weather.
Strawberry picking is honestly addicting. Nothing like being on a mission to find the perfect berry.
The strawberries at Hollin Farms were so sweet and delicious. Not that I was eating them while picking them…
We each filled two quart baskets, costing about $7 total for each of us!!
Our next stop was Seven Oaks Lavender Farm in Catlett, Virginia.
I purchased a LivingSocial deal a few months ago and of course put it off until the last minute.
It was really fun picking lavender with Katy and Becky. It felt like we were in France for a hot second.
We each picked about a dozen stems and then enjoyed some time on the farm before heading to lunch.
Pei Wei is one of my favorite lunch spots in Fairfax, so I convinced the girls to go there for lunch. Pei Wei is part of the PF Changs brand and serves absolutely delicious Asian inspired dishes.
I ordered the Teriyaki Bowl with brown rice and chicken. Delicious!
Once home I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few things for the week and then cleaned my strawberries from the farm.
Late afternoon Neal and I together did the Fitness Test for Best Body Bootcamp. We tested on the following things…
- Mile for time
- Pushups in 60 seconds
- Wall sit for time
- Burpees in 60 seconds
- Plank for time
I was really happy with my mile time and am excited to see all of my numbers improve over the next 8 weeks! (I’ll share my numbers with y’all later this week)
All in all it was an awesome weekend and a fantastic Sunday. I loved spending time with my girlfriends at the farms and enjoyed spending the afternoon and evening focusing on health and fitness with Neal. Here’s to a great week!
