Whew! What a weekend!
Friday night, foca, KB, and mojo drove South to visit my neck of the woods. We headed to Bangkok 54 for dinner and drinks!
Mango Ginger Martini – yum
Martini’s and Mojito’s!
foca’s pad thai.
I got the fried tofu with crispy basil. It was good but too much fried food makes me feel bleh…
We shared the mango with coconut sticky rice for dessert! MM!
KB and Mojo.
foca and I (with squinty eyes).
LADIES NIGHT! Ow Ow!
After dinner we headed across the street to P. Brennan’s for some Irish brews! We met a man in a “Jesus” shirt and heard a John Mayer cover of a Tom Petty song covered by a man named Willey Dicke. (Really his name was Willem Dicke, but the bar typed his name wrong on the calendar. Funny…)
Saturday was MG’s first birthday party! SO CUTE
He was looking for z in this picture…
I ate all the cake and no icing. Icing (for the record) is nasty.
How can you not love this face? HAPPY BIRTHDAY MG! LOVE YOU!
For dinner that night, z and tried a new place: Atilla’s Restaurant! It’s a Turkish restaurant right up the street and we’d never been inside. I think I’ve gotten takeout with SG before, but we decided it was time to eat in the restaurant and I’m sooo glad we did I wanted to treat z to a nice dinner because he took the LSAT and he had studied so hard for it!
We both ordered wine with dinner (white for me, red for z). z started off with a side salad that was topped with pickled cabbage.
We got the YAPRAK DOLMA appetizer (Grape Leaves stuffed with rice, pine nuts, onions, spices and herbs). Delicious!
The bread was piping hot and super fresh. MY FAVORITE!
For my meal, I ordered the Falafel Salad. It was fresh, crunchy and the falafel balls were only lightly fried and packed with flavor!
z got the lamb kebabs and cleaned his plate!
After dinner we stopped by Twisted Vines for
another glass of wine dessert. I got a delicious Merlot (love it!) and we just sat there and talked. What a great Saturday We got home before 11 and decided to watch some TV with…you guessed it – another glass of wine! Let’s just say I slept like a frat boy baby!
As you could imagine, we majorly slept in on Sunday morning. I seriously don’t think we were out of bed until 10:30! Yum, I love sleep! We had a late breakfast and then headed to DC a little after Noon. Where to you ask?
The Newseum! We’d gotten a Groupon for $10 tickets and finally decided to use them!
The view from the 6th floor balcony was gorgeous!
Then I came home and watered my new flowers. Beautiful aren’t they? Well, there’s a story that goes along with them…
While waiting for z to get home on Saturday night, a man knocked on my door, put the flowers in my hands and left. I gave him a funny look as in – buddy, these aren’t my flowers – but he didn’t say anything and neither did I. When z got home, I said “it’s not that I don’t think you’re sweet, but this doesn’t look like your work.” I was right. He didn’t order these flowers. We checked next door – nope not their flowers either. YIKES! Whose flowers are they? I immediately started calling the flower shop but it was closed so I had to leave my info with customer service. So – for now I have these gorgeous (definitely expensive) flowers hanging out at my house.
I hope someone can claim them tomorrow…but until then, I will water them like their my own
It’s time to get back to reality after a great weekend! Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and rumor has it that my awesome boyfriend is making me dinner! OW OW!
