[This post is more family/vacation than food. Sorry!]
On the Friday of our trip, we headed down to Bloomington, or Btown, as us locals call it.
Bloomington is home to Indiana University, made famous by Bobby Knight and the movie, Hoosiers. I was born in Bloomington and raised in a small town 30 miles southwest of it. Don't get me wrong, I love sunny San Diego, but there's a part of my heart that will always always belong to Bloomington.
We met my parents for lunch at the Uptown Cafe, a cute little place on the "the square."
They were happy to see me. :D
After lunch, we did a little shopping and then hit up my very favorite spot in the whole wide world. Soma. It's a little coffee shop on Kirkwood, which leads up the gates of IU. There were times in my life where that little coffee joint felt like my solace from the world. I heart it big time.
I grabbed a chai latte. Afterwards, I snapped a few pics of snowy Kirkwood. Beautiful.
The next day, we went down to French Lick with my parents. French Lick is a small town in Southern Indiana that just so happens to have become a gambling mecca. There are two amazing resorts there and a casino. My parents love it.
We explored the hotel.
Then, we spent the night with my grandparents. It was a late night, with much smack talk going around, as we were playing rummy.
Our last evening was spent having dinner at my parents house. It was a quiet way to end a really busy trip.
And, that's our trip!!!
Don't forget to check out Indiana Part 1! Love y'all!
