Weekend Things: It’s Officially Spring!

I know it’s Monday morning, but I can’t help but be in a good mood.  It’s spring, it’s going to be 73° today and this weekend was a good one.  First and foremost, Joey’s Lasik surgery went really well and he’s currently seeing 20/15 (which I guess is better than 20/20?!), so can’t ask for more than that!  Plus Saturday celebratory breakfast, afternoon massage, Sunday morning lounging, a warm sunshiny walk to yoga and um I made a molten chocolate cake.

It’s totally supposed to snow again this week, but I’m not going to think about that right now, because I’m too excited that it’s spring and I can feel all the warm-weather new-season vibes in the air.  This is one of the best times of the year and I’m gonna soak it all up 🙂


This is Joey pre-surgery, wearing his glasses for the last time!  Maybe we should wait until his follow up on Wednesday, but don’t you think a ceremonial smashing of the glasses would be appropriate?  Lori and I totally watched the whole procedure and OHMYGOD that part where they use what looks like a dental pick to peel back the flap over your pupil is CRAZY.  But in a “since it’s not my eye, I find this to be really cool” kind of way.


I was kind of jealous that he was encouraged to go home and nap — if more health professionals prescribed that, I think we’d all be happier people — but then I also went home and took a nap, so I guess I can’t complain.  My Friday night consisted of putting eye drops in Joey’s eyes (he claims I’m mean about it…), reading and eating popcorn on the couch.  But I didn’t mind one bit.



By Saturday morning, Joey was ready to drive for the first time in weeks and go out to a celebratory breakfast.  I’m wearing glasses in that first photo and Joey isn’t?!  What is happening?!  Funny how the first time we tried Stowaway Coffee + Kitchen I wasn’t all that impressed and now I LOVE it.  The space is just really hipster beautiful and the food is just really unique and most importantly, everything is delicious.  I was in a real good mood after this meal.Read More »
