Wow, this weekend really flew by fast, didn’t it? I feel like one minute I was telling you all how excited I was for the weekend and now it’s already over. Boo. It’s ok though, because my birthday just happens to be this week and I have some fun plans in the forecast. Woohoo!
But before I get too far ahead of myself, let me tell you about my weekend!
Friday evening after work Fabio and I didn’t really feel like going out so we wound up staying in, ordering a chicken and tomato pizza from Ledo’s, and watching the Hunger Games!
I read the Hunger Games books last summer (I was early on the Hunger Games bandwagon) but never got around to watching the movie. Finally Fabio and I decided to bite the bullet and rent it On Demand for $4.99. I thought the movie was really good and was pleasantly surprised. I heard so many people complain about it that I was expecting it to be awful, but I liked it a lot! We had a great evening watching the movie and relaxing 🙂
Saturday morning I got up nice and early to meet my friends for brunch. We went to Wonderland in Columbia Heights and took full advantage of their $11 bottomless mimosas. Ooooh yeah.
Their food was pretty delicious as well and I got a breakfast skillet called “The Veganater” which had roasted potatoes, broccoli, spinach, peppers, mushrooms, and veggie sausage. I got mine with scrambled eggs and whole wheat toast. It was fantastic!
Then my friend Megan and I took a cab back to Arlington, rested up a bit (aka napped off the champagne), and then met up again later in the evening for a pregame with more of our guy friends. We all met at my apartment and had a few drinks to start us off, and then met up with more of our friends in D.C. again. We wound up on a great rooftop with a bunch of our guy friends from college, and then headed to our final destination, a bar in Georgetown. We met up with a bunch of Fabio’s older fraternity brothers, which he was really excited about.
On Sunday morning Fabio and I woke up and then immediately headed over to his aunt’s house in Falls Church. Fabio’s mom and cousin were in town from NY this weekend and we wanted to make sure we saw them before they left!
After lunch I dropped Fabio off at his aunt’s house so he could finish catching up with his family while I went to the grocery store and treated myself to a mani/pedi 🙂 I loved having the time to myself to unwind and relax.
After going grocery shopping I headed back to pick up Fabio, but not before spending some time with his little cousins. I even helped his cousin Savannah (age 6) paint her nails like mine. She wanted each one to be a different color so I helped her out 🙂
After nail painting we headed back home to relax for the remainder of the day. I downloaded a new book on my Kindle (Memoirs of a Geisha- have you read it??) and baked some healthy apple cookies, since I have a gazillion apples in my fridge right now (I can’t help it- they were on sale!)
They look just like my healthy zucchini cookies don’t they?? Probably because I used the same icing that was leftover from baking those 😉 Yay! They are quite tasty and I will be posting the recipe soon!!
So tell me, how was your weekend??
