I’m searching for a common thread to tie this weekend post together, but honestly, all the days felt very different. Friday was spent with Hannah, Josh and for a little bit, Favorite Baby Mason. Saturday was cool and I felt sort of sleepy all day, which I totally blame on the Royal Wedding. And Sunday was packed with “get ready for the work week projects,” that took up the whole day. At the end of it, I told Joey, “we should have had more fun today!”
Yes, yes, Little Man’s Space Junkie ice cream and amazing beer + taco dinner but most importantly, that smiley little babe that I love so so much. Do you see all that fluffy hair he has now?? I asked that he please not grow between my visits but I’m not sure he was listening because he was busy putting a plastic football in his mouth and watching Avery dog run around.
After we got some Mason time in, we dropped him off with his grandparents and headed to Liquid Mechanics for a drink and hit up the Butcher and the Blonde food truck outside for dinner. I think we’ve been talking about chasing down this food truck for three years. Finally! Everything was so so good and the carnitas on both the street fries and my tacos were my favorite part. I also decided to venture outside my comfort zone and order an IPA. Oh wait, that’s what I get everywhere 😛 It was straight delicious though!
If you thought I wasn’t going to wake up at 4:30 AM to watch the Royal Wedding, you’re wrong! But if you thought I was going to wake up at 4:30 AM to watch the Royal Wedding, you’re only half right because I think I was still mostly asleep while I watched it. I liked Kate’s dress a lot more but if seeing Harry and Meghan look lovingly into each others’ eyes with nothing but pure excitement and happiness didn’t touch you, your heart may be made of ice.
When we woke back up, we had banana pancakes then went to the grocery store. Later on, we tried Andi’s new bandanna on. For the record, I don’t condone this but it’s also a cute little dog bandanna so I might sort of condone it. We took a trip to Home Depot then came home and made some Mediterranean Eggplant and Halloumi Bowls with Lemon-Dill Sauce for dinner and I loved every squeaky bite. Clearly, Andi was tired after our early wake up call too ♥
Ha, why am I so bad at taking Sunday pictures though?? Between that first picture — Joey made me an egg sandwich! — and that last picture — Summer Chipotle Chicken Cobb Salads almost make you forget it’s rainy outside — was me pressure-cooking some Navy beans, baking some beet brioche slider buns and brewing kombucha and Joey making us Superfood Salads for weekday lunches, giving Andi a bath and grilling chicken in the rain (hero!). Plus we both went on a run, watched the Rockies lose, read on the couch and ate freezer cookies for dessert.
Mostly, I am just ready for good weather and sunshine and am feeling sort of uninspired without it. Luckily, we are supposed to be in the 80s all week and heading straight into Memorial Day Weekend. I can’t wait! Happy Monday 🙂
