I had a wonderful Friday showing Tina around Chapel Hill today Here we are on campus with the famous UNC well!
The weather was GORGEOUS here today — nearly 80 and super sunny! I took Tina straight from the airport to a fun outdoor lunch at one of my local faves — Sandwhich.
We had a blast hanging, catching up, and enjoying the weather
I had the “Mr. Crunch” sandwich, which was thinly-sliced prosciutto, lettuce, fresh mozzarella, mint & lemon oil on a baguette. SO good!
The lemony peppery oil was the best
And we enjoyed a plethora of liquids. Mint tea and water for both of us; a beer for Tina and a glass of wine for me!
What?! We’re on vacation Disregard the fact that I live here, heh.
After our leisurely lunch we headed out to explore Chapel Hill and the UNC campus by foot! We walked around for a couple hours enjoying the sights — the flowers were all in bloom and I was happy to see campus was looking it’s best for me to show it off
So pretty! I love it here.
Next on the tour of my local favorites — a power yoga class at my favorite studio, Franklin Street Yoga!
Amazing class tonight. It felt good to get some sweating and stretching in!
Last on today’s tour of the south? BBQ, of course
Matt, Tina, my grad school friend Lauren, and I all hit up Allen & Son Barbeque for dinner — it’s the best! A random house in the middle of nowhere… super southern and authentically delicious. I love that they don’t even have a website!
I enjoyed the BBQ sandwich with a side of baked beans. SO good.
BBQ here is a lot different here — instead of thick, tomato-y BBQ sauce like I’m used to, NC BBQ sauce is more thin and vinegary. It’s also really good, just different!
We also all shared some hush puppies
Time to relax! We’re pooped after our busy and active day. We’re off in the morning to our insane 5k obstacle course adventure race over in Greensboro — stay tuned for an epic recap
