Hello everyone! I can’t believe it’s already June! I really hope to take advantage of the summer and not let a minute of it pass me by. It’s definitely one of my favorite seasons and I don’t intend to waste it!
Sorry for not posting last night; we had a fun-filled day at my dad’s house and didn’t get home until after 11 pm. At that point, there was just no way I could squeeze out a blog post. Sorry! But anyway, let me tell you about my weekend!
Friday night I was supposed to barbeque with my friends, but I actually wound up leaving work early due to a tornado warning. Needless to say, our barbeque got rained out. The tornado did touch down in a few areas nearby, but luckily we were safe! Fabio and I spent the evening on the couch relaxing. It was quite nice!
By Saturday morning the bad weather had blown through so Fabio and I decided to take Jack on a walk to Georgetown. From my apartment, it’s only bout two miles to Georgetown so we decided it would be fun to walk around. Secretly I was thinking that if our walk happened to take us by Urban Outfitters or H&M I wouldn’t be upset about it . We started off our walk by picking up two sugar-free vanilla iced coffees from BeanGood Coffee, which were delicious!
Once we crossed the bridge, we started walking around downtown Georgetown. I’m always so happy when I see all the quaint little shops! Of course we walked by Georgetown cupcake, and I was in shock that the line was so short.
Holy street festival! Upon further inspection we realized that the huge gathering was for the Taste of Georgetown. Here’s the description from their website:
The 19th Annual Taste of Georgetown will showcase the spectacular cuisine of thirty of Washington, D.C.’s finest restaurants, highlighting Georgetown’s culinary personalities and feature nearly sixty delectable dishes to sample, as well as wine pairings and the jazz talents of Blues Alley.
Basically this just meant that thirty booths were set up along the street and you could buy tickets to taste specialty dishes from as many as you wanted. One tasting cost $5 and five tastings cost $20, so Fabio and I decided to taste five dishes. It was really fun walking up and down the booths trying to decide what to taste!
First we saw a Petco booth and decided to stop so Jack could get some water. They had a wheel you could spin for prizes and he won a bandana! He also got his picture taken for the store.
We were able to navigate the crowd and got sliders, a barbeque pork sandwich, and some raviolis to taste. All of the portions were small, so it was really fun having little bites of everything. We took our food to a grassy area outside of a church to eat.
Later in the afternoon Fabio and I headed to the Nationals vs. Braves game with my coworker, Ellen, and her boyfriend. We had awesome seats near the front!
It was a blast! As I predicted, the boys were intent on watching the game while Ellen and I chatted about other stuff I do like baseball, but Ellen and I never hang out outside of work so we had a lot of catching up to do. And picture-taking. Duh.
After the game, Dierks Bentley was supposed to perform but he canceled and we got Big And Rich instead. I like country music a lot, but the only song I knew from them was Save A Horse Ride A Cowboy, which is not one of my favorites. Oh well, it was fun! Then we went to a bar for a few beers and headed back home. It was a busy day!!
Sunday we drove to my dad’s house and hung out by the pool. Fabio was mowing the lawn, my sister was playing with her friends, and I was enjoying the sun and my kindle!
Now it’s time to start off the week! Back to regular workouts (four mile walks are nice but not when they are counteracted by apple pie) and better food choices! Happy Monday!
