Heidi’s holiday weekend with her family is a festive journey filled with local support at every turn. On Friday, they kick off the festivities with a family dinner at one of their local favs. The evening continues with a holiday performance downtown. Saturday starts with a caffeine boost, followed by cheering on Heidi’s son at a basketball game and celebrating their victory. Sunday involves a thoughtful stop for a holiday bouquet for the grandparents and a convenient delivery for Heidi’s work lunches. The weekend concludes with a team bonding gathering, adding a fun local touch to their holiday festivities!
After work, I meet my husband and sons atThe Edison Pub & Eatery for dinner. There is something for everyone, from the mac and cheese for my boys to sesame chicken salad for me.
We head downtown to theParamount Theatre to see one of Orchestra Iowa’s performances – Holiday Spectacular! It is one we look forward to every year, as it really gets us into the holiday spirit.
What is a morning without coffee? We head to Dash Coffee Roasters in Marion for coffee and morning pastry to kick off the day.
Next, it’s to the Marion YMCA for my youngest’s son’s basketball game. He plays great, and we want to celebrate the W! So, we head over to Parlor City Pub & Eatery in the NewBo area.
After lunch we head over to Raygun to pick up some last-minute Christmas gifts for the family. Who doesn’t want a Captain Crunch t-shirt for Christmas?! After some shopping, we head home to regroup and change.
We meet up with family at La Cantina Bar & Grill to celebrate my older sister’s birthday. They have a great family atmosphere, and everyone is full when we head home for the evening.
After church, we stop by Pierson’s Flower Shop to pick up a holiday flower bouquet to drop off at the grandparents to wish them happy holidays!
The KETO Kitchen delivers food I pre-ordered for the coming week lunches at work that works with my dietary restrictions – they help make it so easy!
We meet up with some of the youth basketball team at Quarter Barrel Arcade & Brewery for a team bonding gathering prior to the holiday break. We order lots of pizza and the players have a great time playing all the arcade games. What a fun weekend!
