Hi and welcome to the middle of January! Does anyone else feel like this month has already been really long? I’m not mad about it, because I could use a little slow down time and some “I have nothing to do!” moments after the holidays. Just some room to get back into the grove of normal life, you know?
What better way to start out the weekend than with a knockout meal at a new restaurant? We took ourselves to Q House and had the best time! Sat at the chef’s counter, drank cocktails and ate four incredible plates of food. I wanted to see how their spicy chicken compared to Hop Alley and it was BETTER. Our mouths were straight numb but that garlic-y flavor still came through and tasted amazing. I loved it all!
Joey headed to the mountains to ski early Saturday morning and I thought I was going to have a very chill and relaxing day at home (and it started that way, with a homemade peppermint mocha), but then it ended up being a day of frustrating errands that really tested my patience. Mostly, can it please not be January anymore so the grocery store can go back to being less busy and I can actually find a parking spot in less than 20 minutes?
I did bottle a new batch of blood orange kombucha that looked very pretty! And then Andi and I cuddled while Joey watched the Cowboys game and tried to ignore the emotional roller coaster going on at the other end of the couch.
Sunday started with a baby shower brunch for Betsty — umm how cute are mini chicken and waffles?? — and I won the “Baby Bump or Beer Belly” game, ha! Also, they sent us each home with a bottle of champagne to pop when the baby is born and I think that’s the best idea! Took it real easy for the rest of the day, by reading, watching Top Chef and skipping my usual Sunday yoga class.
Later on, we made some dog treats — because our pup has a birthday on Friday and I’m a new dog mom, so don’t judge me — and they smelled way too good to be for a dog 😛 Ended the night with leftovers and a couple of episodes of Killing Eve, which, though it’s a show about an assassin, I find really funny? We’re going to finish it up this week!
How was your weekend?
