What’s In A Weekend?

Lots of food and fun people! That’s what was in my weekend :)

I had dinner at Baja Fresh with my parents on Friday before my mom and I went to see Godspell.

I love that they give you free chips and access to the salsa bar. We had pico de gallo and a new pineapple salsa! YUMM!

I ordered the Mango Chipotle Chicken Salad (Tortilla shell filled with Romaine lettuce, chicken, avocado, Cotija cheese, mango salsa, and a chipotle glaze. Served with chipotle vinaigrette). I got the chicken and cheese on the side for my dad to eat.

It was really good to see everyone! The kids did a really great job and it brought back a ton of awesome memories :)

I headed home after dropping my mom off because I had a breakfast date with z on Saturday morning at 9:30!! We went to Starbucks (soy misto and a banana!) and sat on the steps of the Portrait Gallery! What a gorgeous day it was! After breakfast, we stopped by the Verizon Center store to look for some Capitals t-shirts. We walked back to my place and I grabbed my stuff so we could head over to z’s house.

We went grocery shopping because we were making dinner for PREAKNESS ON THE PIKE!  After we put the groceries away, we worked outside weeding, cleaning, sweeping, etc. Then we sat around for a little while. It was so nice to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Around 3 we started prepping all the veggies:

We stayed up drinking Miller High Life and talking! It was so much fun hanging out with everyone. The little man slept in my arms for the longest time and I absolutely loved it <3 The G’s went home around 12:30, then z and I cleaned up the kitchen. I’m really glad we cleaned up because it meant we got to sleep in until…11:30!!! WOW. Since it was so late, we skipped breakfast and made lunch instead.

I can’t take any credit for lunch. z did it all and even garnished them!

After lunch, we walked up the street to get a paper and some coffee. We ran into the G’s at the farmer’s market and we were glad to find out that they slept in too ;)

We sat in a little park reading the paper and drinking our coffee and then it was time for z to take me home.

A little after I got home I had a snack:

I did two miles on the treadmill, lots of stretching, two leg machines, one arm machine, body bar exercises, bosu ball abs and arms, and squats! Good workout!

Then I headed to the store to shop for the week.
