Weekend Things

You know when you’re just minding your own business, doing things like bottling your very own kombucha, or harvesting patty pan squash from your very own garden and then you remember “I never posted about last weekend!!!”??  Or is that just me?

It was chilly and rainy on Friday so when Joey suggested we see a movie, I was like “BRILLIANT!”  I had been wanting to see Captain Fantastic for weeks and it was playing at our favorite theater so it was a no-brainer.  There was a line outside the ticket booth and I’ve never seen that happen before!  My thoughts on the movie could be a post in itself but I’ll just be brief and say SEE IT!  It was so beautiful and thought-provoking.  We absolutely loved it.

Saturday involved pancakes, a mid-morning run, a trip to the Farmers’ Market (where I bought thee best peaches I’ve ever tasted and I’m not even exaggerating!) a quick trip to the grocery store so I could make this pistachio-yogurt sauce (TO DIE FOR) and basically just working my entire day around the men’s 10m diving events.  We ended the day at the annual “Zehnder Bash.”  I drank something greenish from an unmarked drink dispenser, so that’s where I am in life.

Right now, I’m realizing how hard it is to put together the details of stuff that happened five days ago and mostly thinking “is that what we did on Saturday??”

On Sunday, Joey and I grabbed breakfast sandwiches and Bloodies at Port Side then chilled out till I left for Girls Day with my mom and sister.  We walked over to Base Coat — my mom had never been and we wanted her to experience the pure bliss! — and got our nails done.  Just know that my sister picked my polish color and it’s called “Brunch.”

Back at home, I real quick made some graham crackers for s’mores (that I still haven’t actually made…) then tackled a quick dinner of BLT lettuce wraps and grilled corn with Crema and it was easily the best corn we’ve had all summer.  Then we watched the Closing Ceremony and cried and cried because “4 MORE YEARS!” has a totally different and sad meaning when you’re talking about the Summer Olympics.  Actually, we laughed when the Japanese Prime Minister Mario-ed himself out of that giant tube, but then straight back to crying.

Now it’s Thursday and another weekend is almost upon us!  Can’t be sad about that.  What last minute summer plans do you guys have??

Weekend Things

A few days ago, Joey and I watched this video and it really hit home for me.

I am so addicted to my phone and I hate it.  I hate that I feel the impulse to photograph everything I do.  I hate that Joey and I get into bed at night and instead of talking to each other, we each scroll through our Twitter feeds in silence.  I hate that I can’t be idle for 10 seconds without reaching for my phone to entertain me.  And I hate that it’s not just me who lives like this.

So in the name of trying to be more present in my real life vs. my online life, I’m posting one picture from the weekend.  And making a promise to myself to work on putting my phone down when I’m face to face with another human being.

In other news, this weekend involved lots of time with friends, a perfect sunny fall Saturday, a 4 mile run (that I didn’t die on), Gone Girl with mom, yoga and this giant Bloody Mary, obviously 🙂

Happy Monday!
