When the weather is nice, you always seem to do a lot more, making the weekend go a lot faster.
It started to rain during the game, so we headed up to Josh and Kelly’s apartment, where they made us cocktails.
They had worked up a drink based off the Master Cleanse detox drink…except theirs contained alcohol. And was delicious.
And since Eric and I are old folks now, we headed home early to go to sleep.
Woke up Saturday morning to a beautiful day, and I set out on a 12 mile run. The run went well, I was happy to set a new personal distance, and it gave me some more confidence for the half marathon I am running in two weeks.
I was happy to come home and find Eric and Andy Carr hanging out, wanting to go grab some food.
We went to our usual brunch spot, Cantina Dos Segundos. I like going to brunch here because you rarely have to wait, and free chips and salsa!
Juli and I had plans to get our bangs cut, so she joined us for brunch too.
After one margarita, Juli and I had to leave because we were getting our bangs trimmed. After the mop chop we headed back to our place to hang out on the deck. Eric and I finally got a table for our deck, and I was pretty excited to put it to use.
We couldn’t hang for long, and Juli and Adam had to leave. Adam’s pretty cool and has a motorcycle. Anyone want to take bets on how long till Eric buys a motorcycle? I don’t think it will be too long…
I headed over to Kelly’s because it was her bridal shower!
We played some games and ate delicious food and drank delicious drinks.
Sunday was spent catching up on things around the house. We have both been so busy (or sick) the past few weeks that our place was a mess, and we were seriously lacking in food.
Eric and I got to working in the yard fairly early in the morning. I really needed to get my plants planted.
I had grand plans of building raised beds, and clearing out some of our flower beds, but the time just got by me and I never accomplished any of that. We were able to clear one bed in our yard though. For the other plants we used old kitty litter containers because we
are cheap care about the environment and are all about reusing things.
Later in the afternoon we finally went to the grocery store. We have been so busy and have only been eating quick and easy food. It was nice to take some time to actually prepare things.
Eric started off by making cashew milk!
He soaked some cashews, then blended them, then squeezed out the liquid till he got this.
I also bought ramps at the store! I had never heard of these till I moved here (along with fiddleheads). I had to grab some and try them out. I cooked them with some sweet potatoes and kale and they turned out good.
We have some pretty busy weekends coming up, but I am really looking forward to them!
