Hi friends! How was your weekend? Ours was a good mix of fun and relaxing, which is always the best way to spend a weekend if you ask me! Here’s a peek at what we were up to.
On Friday night, Fabio and I went on a boat cruise hosted by his work. (Yes, that makes two Friday nights in a row with boat cruises…who are we??)
This time our boat left from the Navy Yard and we cruised south along the Potomac, as opposed to last week when we left from Georgetown and cruised north. I guess now we’ve seen the whole river by boat! 🙂
It was a lovely night to be out on the water, and we had fun eating, drinking, and dancing with Fabio’s coworkers.
After the boat ride, we hopped into an uber and headed over to Policy on U Street with a few of Fabio’s coworkers. Once there, we continued to dance the night away. I hadn’t been to Policy in ages, and it was a lot of fun to be back!
Saturday morning began with a quick run with Jack (I always feel like a little sweat session helps get alcohol out of my system faster – ha!) and then around 12:30 we got ready for two special guests to arrive, my stepsister Maggie and her boyfriend, Nick!
Before they got there, Fabio and I tag-teamed cleaning up the house and then he offered to run out to the store to pick up some snacks while I finished getting ready. Our neighbor also happened to be selling some figs from his fig tree, so when Maggie and Nick arrived we all snacked on champagne, cheese, figs, prosciutto, and cantaloupe!
Happy Saturday indeed! 🙂
A little while after our snack session, we all hopped in an uber that would take us to a BBQ hosted by our family friends Dan and Alanna. Even though we had just eaten cheese and snacks, I wasted no time filling up on amazing BBQ food.
I hadn’t eaten breakfast on Saturday, so I basically considered our cheese course breakfast and the BBQ lunch. Haha! Everything was delicious, especially the two salads made by Alanna. I’ll have to get those recipes!
Before long, it was time for our group to pack everything up and walk over to the Nationals game! Maggie had never been to a Nats game before, so we briefly split up from Dan, Alanna, and the rest of their friends so we could show her the Bullpen.
It was packed, as usual! Must have been because of the good weather, live music, and beer. 🙂
I love this place and was so glad Maggie and Nick got to see it!
Before long, it was time to head into the stadium!
Our seats were fairly high up, but we still had a good view of the field.
Thanks so much to Dan to treating us all to these seats!!! (He’s a season ticket holder and was able to cash in some rewards points so everyone could go together.)
At the end of the fifth inning, we left our seats to meet up with our good friends Courtney and Kevin who also happened to be at the game. We shared a beer with them and enjoyed catching up! Before we knew it, the 8th inning had arrived so we all scurried back to our seats to watch the rest of the game.
My handsome husband!
I think I’ve mentioned that Fabio used to be a bat boy for the Yankees and the Mets, and when we first started dating he took me to a bunch of Mets games so I could watch him down on the field. Because of him I also got to visit the club house and dugout – and go onto the field – after a game. Because of this, I was having mixed emotions about which team to root for, Nats or Mets, but in the end I was happy when the Nats pulled off a win. 🙂
It was such a fun day with fun people, and after a quick dinner at Nando’s and saying goodbye to Nick and Maggie, I fell into bed exhausted at 10:00 p.m. Fabio wound up watching the big fight at a friend’s house on Pay Per View, but I was happy to stay home in my PJs and catch up on sleep instead. 🙂
Sunday was a very relaxing and lazy day – we slept in, watched a few episodes of Shameless, and just kind of hung out around the house which was glorious.
Eventually I did some meal planning and hit up the grocery store, but other than that it was quite a relaxing day!
Now I’m just waiting for Fabio’s cousin and her boyfriend to come over a little later for the Game of Thrones finale! I can’t wait to see what happens but am bummed this season is already almost over. Wah!!
Question of the day: Did you watch the finale? What did you think?
