Friday, as you know, was Veteran’s Day and I thought I would share my Dad and I here, too. I shared on social media. Of course this is a photo of a photo.
Erica made burrito bowls for our Friday lunch. We both had college education majors observing us on Friday so they ate with us and the four of us chatted.
After work, we met Elizabeth at Martini’s for happy hour.
It’s located in one of my favorite outdoor malls.
I stuck with bourbon based martinis. This was just so-so.
This was really good. It was a sweeter one, but I forgot to note what was in it.
We had some focaccia and some..
spinach and artichoke dip and stayed there chatting for about two hours.
I went home and made Tom and I a light dinner and mine included popcorn and some catching up on Bravo shows from the week.
Are you caught up from the time change? I am putting myself to bed between 8:30 and 9 because I just can’t keep my eyes open. I am struggling a bit to get out of bed in the morning, too.
Saturday, we knew it was a possibility, but I didn’t really believe it.
We ended up with at least an inch!
I made myself a Spanish tortilla because I was watching a dating show from Spain on Netflix and it just seemed right.
I did laundry, cleaned the living room and kitchen, and tidied up my closet.
I had plans to attend Jingle Fest in NULU which is just to get people to visit stores in that area and ring in the season. I met my friend Victoria and it felt good to get out in the crisp air. This is the courtyard at a shop called Red Tree and the snow on the umbrellas looked so cool!
Snowy baby Buddha?
Jen, this candle is for you. I love this brand of candles!
We popped in to the macaron bar and I had a Fruity Pepple macaron. Yum!
I discovered a really cool new to me bourbon lounge that I will have to visit.
The decor in Red Tree:
A cool little alley:
Victoria and I said goodbye and I got a to-go Emmy Squared pizza to take home.
I put up my few Thanksgiving decor items:
For dinner, we got take out sushi and mine was really good. It was avocado, asparagus, cucumber, and some garlic chips and tofu dust on top?
I am really loving this book and I am trying to enjoy reading inside rather than outside! I started my Sunday with some reading.
I did my 5 breakfasts for the week and one of my lunches – spinach and artichoke wonton lasagna cups. I added mushrooms and onions, too.
My DIY gel mani lasted 5 days. I am happy with that. I used my new Amazon remover and they peeled right off.
I did a new one and it does require some patience. I think it took me about 45 minutes.
So, this was what had been stopping me. Since the removal process was so easy, I am kinda excited! It doesn’t look perfect, but it looks pretty good.
Tom and I ran a few errands that included visiting a Mexican grocery store for some prizes for a couple of competitions and games I’ve been playing in classes.
We checked out our almost opened Top Golf!
And, the Mexican influence made us really hungry so we ate a lunch/dinner at 3:00.
We came home and Tom fixed my headlight that was out and I read some more.
And, that was a wrap on my weekend pretty much!
WW rolls out their new plan today at 9:00 a.m. if anyone is interested. I am exciting to see all the deets.
Thanks for reading,
