Hey friends! Happy FriYAY! I woke up in an excellent mood today. The sun is shining (even if it’s going to be short-lived again) and I’m really excited for this weekend!
We have a wedding to go to tomorrow, and although the weather is calling for 100% chance of rain and chilly temperatures, I know we’re still going to have a great time. A little rain can’t stop us!
Before we get to all the fun of the weekend though, let’s take a look at some other highlights from my week!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love when Fabio cooks me breakfast. I think there’s just something about having someone else cook for you that seems to makes the food taste better. Is it just me?
I was especially loving his toast + sriracha + avocado + egg this week, but he also made me an arepa with cheese and an egg on another day. Delicious!
We also had some really tasty (and easy) dinners this week! One night I made this egg white pizza bake complete with lots of veggies, pepperoni, sausage, and cheese. It’s all about balance! 😉 I strayed from the recipe a bit by spooning some tomato sauce over the top before I added the cheese, and it turned out great! There were tons of leftovers too, which is always nice for packing for lunch. I will definitely be making this again.
Jack is such a creeper.
We also are still loving our salmon!
The brown sugar salmon with avocado crema recipe from Eating in the Middle continues to be a favorite in our house, especially when it’s served with asparagus and couscous on the side. Yum!
Spring!! I just love this time of year when all the trees are bright green and everything looks so fresh. My apartment complex has a lot of really nice landscaping around it, and I especially love the rose bushes that are in bloom right now next to the dog park. So pretty!
Like usual, I took a bootcamp class with my friends Anne and Kathleen this week, and we had a great time catching up while getting our sweat on! This time we took our fitness adventure over to the Metabolic Resistance Training class at Definitions in Georgetown, which continues to be one of our favorite bootcamps. It’s a tough one!
Speaking of friends and fitness, this was the second week in a row where I’ve bumped into a few friends at FlyWheel during the 6:00 am spin class. While I always enjoy bumping into old friends, sometimes 6:00 am is too early for small talk with someone you haven’t seen in five years. I don’t think my brain is awake that early, haha!
Also since the sun was finally out toward the later half of the week, I was able to go for a run with my favorite four-legged running buddy. 🙂
Running with Jack always puts a smile on my face.
Favorite Weeknight Activity
This week we got to see Megan and JR for happy hour! Once I got out from work, the cloudy skies were starting to clear up, and I was more than ready for a drink.
Fabio and I wound up walking to happy hour, which was at Biergarten Haus on H Street. We are still thinking we might want to buy a row home in this area if we can find one in our price range, so we had fun taking a leisurely stroll to check out all the houses we’ve ogled on RedFin.
During our walk we passed this cute community garden, which is available to all the people who live in that neighborhood. I love this idea!
When we arrived, we had fun trying to pronounce the German beers on the menu. Weihenstephaner Kristall-Weiss…how do you say that?!
Then we ordered our giant beers, and enjoyed a mini date on the roof until Megan and JR arrived a little later.
Once Megan and JR got there, I was too busy chatting and having fun to take any more pictures. It’s always so fun getting together with them!
Next week we are traveling to Colombia for vacation!! We leave Wednesday morning and I am so excited. Our friends Jojo and Jadd are meeting us down there, and pretty much all of Fabio’s family will be there too! We have lots of fun activities planned including touring Medellin and Cartagena, boat rides, horse back riding, spending time with family by the pool, and more. It should be a blast!
I’m going to try to get a few posts scheduled for you guys while I’m away, but I’m pretty busy between now and when we leave so I’m not sure how many I’ll be able to write. Is there anything in particular you guys want to hear about?
Let me know!
