Yay we finally had a super fun and busy weekend!
The weather was gorgeous on Friday so Eric left work early. We headed out to Dos Segundos for happy hour. We used to go almost every Friday last year. Beers and chips and salsa were welcomed with open arms.
On our walk home I modeled my new bag from The Church of Seitan.
I won this bag from The Discerning Brute and I LOVE it.
We ran into Kitta Marie in the backyard and she wanted to say hello!
Our plans for going out quickly diminished when I fell asleep watching a movie after dinner.
But we were up early Saturday morning to run a bunch of errands and try to beat the rain.
I love riding my bike through the city on weekend mornings. It’s so dead and you don’t have to fear for your life.
We did a bunch of shopping and hit up H&M, J. Crew, Lush and Philadelphia Runner. We had a Groupon to Sweet Freedom and headed there to pick up some mid-morning snacks.
We picked up a cake ball, cinnamon roll, apple crisp and cookie sandwich. Unfortunately most of our desserts were ruined in the rain later in the day 😦 .
We finished up stuff downtown and rode over to Maoz for some falafel for lunch. Not as good as the falafel we had in Europe, but it hit the spot and was cheap.
And then we headed to the National Museum of American Jewish History! Eric and I have wanted to check it out since it opened and there was a Groupon a few weeks ago. I picked up two tickets and it seemed like a good idea to finally go since it was supposed to rain all Saturday.
You aren’t supposed to take pictures inside, but I snuck a few.
The museum was cool and packed with information.
When we left it was already pouring outside so Eric and I headed home.
We had plans to go out Saturday night, but it rained and rained forever. I didn’t feel like braving it so we just stayed in.
It was probably for the best because we had to wake up really early for Eric’s bike race in the morning.
Let’s just say the race didn’t go as planned and was a pretty big bummer for a lot of people. Bike races are totally different than running races.
After the race was more bike fun! Eric’s bike team had to provide bike support for the Girls with Gears ride. I decided to join and ride along since I hadn’t been on the bike in a while.
I wish we had taken the camera on the ride, but we forgot! The first half was really pretty and we had some nice rolling hills. The second half was really windy and it felt like we just went uphill the entire time.
We ended up riding about 30 miles, which was a lot for me! I was freeeeezing by the end though.
I was beat by the end of the ride. Eric and I drove back to the city and I made us a pizza with a new crust recipe.
I spent the rest of the day feeling like this, a little tired.
