Wow – that weekend sure went by quickly! I am linking up today with Heather, etc. right here. (I am trying not to use so many exclamation points. I had to just change that last sentence. Can one person really exclaim that much? )
How was your weekend? Ours was unseasonably warm. Basically it was the weather we were supposed to have had on Thanksgiving Break.
Friday after school I busted out of those doors just as quickly as I could because it was 60 freaking degrees!
Erica came over for a quick margarita and to borrow some vests for her family photos and then Heather below took her spot for some charcuterie, conversation, and cocktail. I made her an Aperol Spritz. We fancy?
Tom came home and the three of us sat on my back deck until it was quite dark – around 6:00.
After Heather left I went and did my Kroger pick up and then an even better pick up….Mason! Jack needed the car so I was happy to be the Lyft driver. Mason wanted to come home for a distraction free environment to write his final semester papers.
Night driving…I hate it. I have an astigmatism so the lights look distorted. I need to find this meme that shows the difference between no astigmatism and astigmatism. Anyone else?
Mason and I watched a Gilmore Girls and then he worked Friday night and most of the day Saturday while Tom went hiking with a buddy and I had a shopping date with my niece Morgan.
We went to Butchertown Market/Work the Metal which I have mentioned before. It is a really large space with kid stuff, kitchen stuff, clothing and accessories, and more. It is a really great place to find gifts.
Um….and they have $1 mimosas. Morgan had an apple cider and I had a cranberry.
Then, we headed to the area called NULU which I have also mentioned. It is an abbreviation for New Louisville – an area of downtown that has been revitalized. We went in about 3 or 4 shops but I only bought a candle. I was looking for the Pickwick Mahomes for the Holiday candle and I knew the plant store Mahonia carried it. They only had Holiday so I got that and it smells amazing. Use your candles, people! Do not save them! Ha – just a little PSA.
We were both curious about this new business that only just opened a couple of weeks ago.
We tried a flight of a few different flavors. They are alcoholic but they also have non-alcoholic.
The vibe was super cute but honestly the seltzers were not fizzy enough for me or maybe anyone. I wished I had brought a Topo Chico in my purse to liven it up. It tasted like you had had a party and someone drank half of a White Claw and left it there and you were a slob and left it there for maybe 7 days and then drank it.
After that, we were hungry and headed to Frankfort Avenue which is a cute street of restaurants and we picked The Hub.
You gotta have fries!
Morgan got chicken and grits and I got…
tiny little avocado toasts.
We parted ways after lunch and I went home.
Around 6, Tom, Mason, and I went to try a new to us place called Falafel House. Sadly, they had no indoor seating.
We had to eat in the car before going in to a beautiful church as part of Bardstown Road Aglow to hear Jack sing.
They were awesome and it was the first time we have gotten to hear Jack sing in person because everything was live streamed last year due to Covid. Jack decided to come home with us for the night and it was already 10 by the time we got home.
I slept in until 8:00 a.m.! Teacher Tired!
I had my coffee and read and then jumped right into meal prep.
I did my 5 breakfasts for the week, Greek bowls, and this turkey sausage vegetable mixture. Erica has 3 lunches this week. It takes me a good amount of time but it really is so worth it to have all of my containers ready to go.
I also made the Trader Joe jumbo cinnamon rolls that I forgot to use for Thanksgiving for the three guys. Kim told me to get them and she is right again. I had to test a bit of one for quality control.
So, speaking of teacher tired and so many things I have to accomplish before December 17 in my professional and personal life, I am going to reduce my blog posts to 3 per week for now. I will be back Wednesday for What I Wore and Friday for Friday Favorites.
I hope you had a great weekend! Let me know in the comments what you did if you feel inclined.
