Donâ€™t get me wrong â€“ I love fireworks as much as the next American. But really â€“ once youâ€™ve seen a few firework displays, youâ€™ve pretty much seen them all. Which is why we opted out of the firework-watching insanity and retreated to a bowling alley last night.
The Husband and I were I OBSESSED with bowling in Orlando (we moved to Charlotte a year ago this week!) but havenâ€™t found a good alley in Charlotte. Now, our requirements for a â€˜goodâ€™ alley are as follows:
- Extremely cheap
- Dive bar with a walk-up window to the bowling alley
- Pitchers of beer
- Tacky murals
- Fun people-watching
Park Lanes delivered! Bonus points for a Jukebox that takes credit cards.
We went with Nicole and Isaac. Nicole kicked out butts. I always get progressively worse as my arm gets tired
and I drink more alcohol.
No, really, in all seriousness, I think bowling is a perfect date night activity for couples. Thatâ€™s why we used to bowl so much! You get to do something active, itâ€™s cheap and funny, and thereâ€™s a little friendly competition.
Eats included shared French fries and wine in a plastic cup. So classy.
â€¦ And then I slept until 11 AM. Seriously. I wanted to strangle myself when I rolled over and checked the clock. I have so much to do today!
Thus, a very quick and easy breakfast:
A mix of gluten-free cereals, sunflower seeds, almond milk, and a banana.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
