Weekend Things

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.

Happy Monday!
