I know you’re all on the edge of your seats, wondering if the salad-in-a-jar I posted on Thursday night was a success.
Well… it totally was!
Between this and Joey’s surprise suggestion that we should walk to grab some Friday morning iced coffee, I was in a pretty good mood to start out the weekend. Life is fun when you’re always eating awesome things 🙂
Now that it’s May, the weather is warmer (except that the forecast is rain for the foreseeable future…) and summer is right around the corner, I am like TACOS. All day, every day. Which means reinstating Taco Friday. Huzzah! We made these Korean-Style Beef Tacos with Quick Pickled Slaw and they were just okay, but I give us an A+ on the actual steak. For two people who don’t cook meat that often, we’re not bad at it. (If this was Instagram, I’d totally insert the “OK” emoji here.)
I had a facial-massage duo on Saturday (tough life) and grabbed lunch with Mom in between. We very obviously needed lunch dessert and I very obviously chose a glittery white chocolate tartlette. P.S. There’s macarons and macaroons but they’re different things that are pronounced the same? I’m so confused.
I spotted this giraffe graffiti outside my parents’ office and kind of loved it.
Following my day of relaxation, I headed home to where Joey had been fixing electrical stuff and being the world’s most perfect husband. For real, we’d had a very conveniently placed outlet not working for OVER A YEAR and he finally got it fixed. I could do without texts that are like “hope I don’t electrocute myself,” but I’m SO excited that he got it working. Oh and I walked into the house, JUST as the horses took off at the Kentucky Derby <– good timing! We ended the night at a viewing party for the fight. I won $40 and now I think I’ll quit my job and become a professional gambler.
We had Sunday morning brunch plans with Bobby and Becca, so we were in line for the Linger rooftop promptly at 10 AM. I felt like we were part of a secret brunch club. It ended up being beautifully sunny all the way through brunch so thank you, Gods of Patio Weather. I got chorizo breakfast tacos (tacos, duh) and a Bloody Mary and all was right in the world. I later asked Joey if we could go to Linger every weekend for brunch. He said no…
We spent the rest of the day at a family birthday party, then took ourselves home to nap because man, brunching and lounging outside makes you tired 😉
Ended the night with dinner and got sucked into two episodes of Intervention before watching Mad Men. My TimeHop recently brought up an old post of mine where I mentioned starting to watch Mad Men and thinking it was really boring but now here I am feeling so sad that the series finale is so close. That show, way more than being about advertising or the glitz and glam of being a successful New Yorker in the 60’s, is about the relationships between characters. Those scenes between Peggy and Roger (two characters who don’t usually interact much) this week were so perfect.
