How was your weekend? I hope it was great! As you are reading this, I am sitting in a two day professional development. Please keep me in your prayers. I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and more here!
Let’s go back to Thursday afternoon for a nail update. First of all, I removed my last color of gel with the method of filing down the color a bit, putting remover soaked cottonballs on each day wrapped in aluminum foil, waiting about 15 minutes, and then just wiping it off. The removal process is kinda tedious. I replaced it with this very light blue and I think I did a better job. We are going on three days now and it looks the same except for the nail I broke.
We rarely go out to eat during the week but we were invited by our friends because their weekends are booked. So, Thursday evening we met them at a Cuban restaurant where I did a make my own margarita – I asked for a shot of tequila, fresh lime juice, and a splash of Sprite.
I ordered grilled fish with cilantro. I only ate the fish and beans and a bit of plantain.
We had a nice time catching up with our friends!
The next day I took Mason to a place for lunch that I thought he would enjoy. Spoiler: he didn’t. We had such a nice time over breakfast but this was not as nice. They have artwork on the ceiling.
I ordered a combo lunch offering where you could get a house salad, a fish taco, and a vegetable and I got asparagus.
Mason got a combo with a Reuben.
Anyway, he thought the food was mediocre and didn’t like the clientele? Who knows? With teens, it sometimes can be a mood thing. We went home and I didn’t let it affect me. I wasn’t eating out at all until like two weeks ago and now we seem to have made up for it. I’m squeezing lots of things in!
Friday night we stayed in. I made Mexican food – using up a lot of leftovers. Then, the boys went to Shakespeare in the Park where one of Jack’s teachers was a cast member. I watched the Olympics opening ceremony. I love it so much!
Saturday morning I had my coffee on the patio because it was nice out finally!
And, I prepped and packed food for a fun day! My sister, brother in law, and one of their dogs boated to us again like they did last summer!
Jason, my brother in law, loves Mexican layer dip so I made that for him.
It was perfect weather and the time just flew. We always enjoy time with them. We invited my other sister but she had an obligation.
Saturday night we were worn out from the sun and water so we watched t.v. with Jack and Mason.
Sunday morning I read on the patio for a bit. This is my current read and it’s cute. My reading has really slowed down.
Then, we did it again! We met our friends Scott and Jessica and cruised a bit and then had some more portable boat charcuterie, ordered food from Captain’s Quarters and took it to the cove to eat and bob around in the water.
A full and very summery weekend, I would say!
What was the highlight of yours?
