How was your weekend? Did anyone set themselves up for whatever your idea is of a better weekend? I did my grocery pick up on Thursday, which again was so nice.
Let’s go back to Friday. It was a long week. I was ready to bust out those doors. Erica extended a happy hour invite to our entire faculty and about 12 showed up. It was really nice to talk to other teachers who we don’t get to see.
I left around 4:00 because I had other plans…
All of my high school and college friends are turning 50 this year and I am lucky that many of them live in my city.
My friend Mike had a bucket list item to play guitar and sing publicly and he picked this gorgeous brewery that used to be a greenhouse.
They also have great food – like surprisingly great. Tom and I had brussels sprouts…
I had salmon with sweet potatoes and zucchini and it was delish!
Tom had pulled pork but I forgot to take a photo.
Mike was amazing and played a song that Tom really likes so Tom dropped him a tip and that started something!
Mike’s wife Beth, who I also went to high school with:
We stayed until about 8:00 and then we crashed!
Saturday morning I started my day with some reading and my coffee. Tom started his day with a 32 mile bike ride. Opposites attract, right?
I was so behind on responded to blog comments from the week! Eek!
Anyone peep their name on my comments? He, he!
I did have to do Costco. I got there right when it opened – I thought. How are there already so many cars all the time?
I stuck to food items and paper products that we needed, but I went a bit overboard.
$330 dollars later…
I bought this and it’s good! I am wanting to pick a cleaner protein shake.
I also picked this – a box comes with 6 of these little cartons equivalent to 10 eggs I believe. Someone – sorry! – recommended them and they are really good. Thank you!
I went ahead and made 5 breakfast burritos and put them in the freezer. This time I did the Kirkland egg whites, a bit of cheese, and an Amy Lu breakfast sausage link. I did not do any potatoes. I hope this turns out! I also used a Costo low carb tortilla so I hope that I like it as much, too.
Then, around 2:00, it was time for Part 2 of Mike’s birthday!
They just built a gorgeous pool and this was a real pool party where people actually wear suits and get in the pool – not a fake pool party where people stand around a pool in white jeans, you know?
Complete with bar and bartender. I was informed the bartender is not usually there! But, how cool if you just hired a bartender for 3 hours a day during happy hour?
The cake was gorgeous and was a bourbon barrel!
Tom was one of the first in the pool!
A couple of our best friends drove in from Cincy!
The food was catered and delish. I think I have enough pickles, but maybe not…
We got home around 7:00 and ate some leftovers for dinner.
Sunday I slept in a bit and did my weekend morning routine, some meal prep, and you know, made some more strawberry freezer jam – ha!
Then, it was time for Sunday Fun Day…
Our friends were able to join us for lunch at Captain’s Quarters…
and a lot of time just bobbing in the water.
I had very little time at home but it was worth it! I am hoping for a way less busy week this week and I am ready for Labor Day weekend.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
