Friday was fine and I managed to get all of my semester exams graded and entered into our online grade program before I left for the day.
Also, I won a poinsettia! There was a thing for all of the teachers to put their name in a raffle and I won! Did you know the flower is from Mexico? So, yeah, it’s only fitting that a Spanish teacher won!
We had an after school Christmas happy hour at an Irish bar. The school bought the food and we had to buy our own drinks. I had a delicious cranberry mule.
I didn’t stay that long because we had evening plans. This was the only night that our two couple friends could coordinate to get together with us over the holidays. We started out at a pop up bar called Miracle on Market.
Look at the camera, Tom!
It was cute but one of those “I don’t really need to go again” type things.
We walked down the street to our reservation at Guacamole Modern Kitchen.
I got a drink called “Day of the Dead”. It was really good and smoky!
We got chips and guacamole and queso.
My friend and I split a salad and
Everything was amazing! It was my first time going there.
I hit the gym both Saturday and yesterday mornings. Who am I? I will tell you who I am – a girl who plans to indulge in some holiday foods.
I am not a soft drink person but this is really good. Have you tried it?
Here is why I needed to go to the gym…I made Hi Sugarplum’s recipe.
I went down the Harry and Meghan rabbit hole. I am almost done with the Netflix series now. I have never been a royal obsessed person but I thought I would check it out. I believe everything in this docuseries. Tom says that is the point of it – to make me believe their side. I don’t know. I have read The Royal We. None of what they are saying seems far fetched, you know? Thoughts?
The German restaurant that closed has been offering take out nights once every couple of months so Tom said to definitely place an order. I went to pick it up and then brought it home to wait on us. Jack had a guitar concert in the college chapel even though the dorms closed Friday.
It was really good and we really enjoyed it. Jack played with 2 other kids, then alone and he explained what each song was going to be (no one else did that), and then the concert ended with the guitar professor playing a few songs alone. He was so good!
We went home – the kids rode home together and Tom and I rode home together and then ate our German food.
We are watching Wednesday as a family.
Sunday morning Tom and I went to the Argentinian restaurant to watch Argentina play in the World Cup.
It was really fun and I am glad we went. Tom had to be coerced a bit, but I think he liked being in that atmosphere.
I ran a couple of errands with Tom and then a couple alone and watch more of Harry and Meghan.
For dinner we had burrito bowls:
What was the highlight of your weekend?
