richmond veg fest 2019 // #rvavegfest

Saturday I volunteered with my two best friends at the Richmond Vegetarian Festival! We helped with parking and then walked around the festival and had some amazing vegan food and petted a bunch of adorable puppers (most notably a tiny little nine pound pup who was the cuuuutest).
I was starving by the time our volunteer shift ended, so I started with a sides sampler from Khepra's Raw Food Juice Bar! I loved their kale and one other side, but I have no idea what it was, haha. While I didn't try any juice, definitely check them out if you're in DC! The food is worth it.
Next I tried the vegan mac & cheeze from In the Raw with Soul and GUYS, this stuff was amaaaaaaaaazing. I wish I had tried more from them! They had a surf and turf burger that looked really good, but I didn't see a photo until after I was home! I hope I run into them again sometime.

I had a great time and great food. ♥

diy climbing pole for plants

I love Monsteras. They're also climbers, so I decided to make my own climbing pole! I had initially made this for my deliciosa, but I think I'm going to let my recently acquired adansonii get a little bigger and use this for it instead and just make (or buy) a larger pole for the former. While it was cost effective to make my own smaller pole, the larger ones can get pricey. But here's how I made this one!

Here's the supplies I used:
1" wooden dowel, burlap trough liner, twine, scissors. I picked everything up at Lowe's for less than $12. I did already own the scissors. I completed this activity outside on my crappy balcony so I didn't get twine dust all over my apartment and dog hair all over my new pole.
I doctored the liner a little so it fit better on the pole. I tied the twine around the top and tightly wove it down the burlap around the pole. I left the bottom bare so moisture wasn't hugged against the wood.

And here it is! Just waiting to be climbed up by some plant babies.

How have you made your climbing pole?

Elk are back at Maymont for the first time in 17 years! 

The FBI has released an official file on Bigfoot. I've always said to just leave Bigfoot be!

Oh my goodness...this recipe for vegan gyros with mushrooms and tzatziki looks delicious.

In the book world, there's going to be a Hunger Games prequel released next year!

These house plant bookmarks are soooo cute.

June 18th's Google Doodle celebrating falafel is adorable.

The giant agave at the Garfield Park Conservatory has grown out of the building!

wine tour saturday

Saturday I was invited to go on a wine tour with Jess and a fabulous group of ladies. We all met at the cabin and loaded up the bus and set off! We had an absolutely amazing lunch at Early Mountain Vineyards. I had the pimento grilled cheese and it was to die for.

We tried several amazing local wines spread out over four wineries. The venues were gorgeous as well as the area. While I didn't bring home any wine, I did get a bottle of cider at Mountain Run for Kyle and I to share. We all came back to the cabin and had a fantastic potluck! I brought a greek tortellini salad that turned out quite nice.
