Hey, hey! How was everyone’s Memorial Day Weekend? My recap comes a bit late, but we had a nice, relaxing weekend and the weather was beautiful (which means, not too hot!).
On Saturday was J and my 11th anniversary (*gasp*, I know! I can’t believe we’ve been married for that long!). It was a mostly normal Saturday for us, I ran the usual errands during the day, but we went out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in town, Tapa the World, a Spanish tapas bar. I ordered Sangria and we had a bunch of different tapas.
fresh bread with dipping sauce
patatas bravas, steamed mussles, mushrooms in garlic sauce
filet mignon bites, cheese
On Sunday morning, I went for my long run. I thought I was going to be extra smart and run to the Farmers Market and pick up some fresh pretzel croissants for breakfast (they are delicious!).
I didn’t factor in that running the whole way back (4 miles) with something in my hand was not going to be so much fun. I figured that the croissants were going to be ‘light’, but then I also ended up buying a small loaf of bread (which looked so good), so running back felt like running with (awkwardly-shaped) weights in my hands, and don’t forget the hand-sweating. At least I had something in each hand? Don’t know, don’t repeat that at home, kids.
Note to self: nice plan, stupid execution. I am not going to do this again. I had to cut my run a bit short (9.5 miles had to do) to get the goodies home, but the croissants were definitely a nice reward after all. I made fresh coffee and watched baseball when I got home. I also started a new book in the afternoon and took a nap (because I could!).
Monday was super-lazy, too, and I didn’t do much at all. Ok, I cleaned up a bit, did some laundry, watched more baseball and finished my book in the afternoon. We also had a German-style BBQ for dinner…. grilled pork belly, boiled potatoes with herbed yogurt dip, caprese salad and fresh bread. Yum!
Other good things:
a new book ♥ phone call with my family ♥ meal planning ♥ hanging out in the backyard ♥ juice with sparkling water ♥ ice-cream ♥
How was your long weekend? Did you do something fun?
