Greetings! How was everyones weekend?! I had an absolutely incredible 48 hours, so I think it’s only appropriate to celebrate all the fun we had these past two days and start our Monday’s off on a Marvelous note.
I know you’re all excited to hear about my “surprise” Saturday night. But since I like being neat and tidy, I’m going to start where it all began. Friday night.
My boyfriend and I celebrated the end of a seemingly endless week with dinner at Bodega. Their brussel sprouts are to die for. And they have amazing non-meat options. I usually stick with the seared ahi Tuna tacos with crushed avocado, ginger carrots and sriracha aioli. I’m pretty positive I could live on Mexican food. Although Italian is a staple in my diet, i.e. #AllTheCarbs, I cannot get enough Guac.
Although I tried my best, I faded late night and opted to pass up on beers with BF and his friends for my couch, some stretchy pants and Jurassic Park. Now, most of you are probably thinking, “oh wow, great movie”, and until Friday night, I had never seen it. #ShelteredLife. I was told by my cinema loving boyfriend that it is incredible, and in order for me to go see Jurassic World with him, I had to watch the original. So I curled up on my couch, settled in with some popcorn, and rented the infamous Spielberg movie. And I
hated strongly disliked it. I just could not for the life of me get into it. I know. I’m weird. Here’s to hoping the new one’s better?
Saturday I got up and had the most brutal 10 miler. It was beyond humid, and I was mentally struggling the entire time. I think it was one of those runs which just reminds me that not every run is going to be a good one. After I finished, conveniently at Starbucks, I got back to my apartment and decided to treat myself to an amazing 30 minute reflexology session. First off, if you don’t like a foot rub, we probably have nothing in common. Second, I’m pretty sure my reflexologist was a voodoo doctor. 5 minutes into my massage he asked me if I had been sick recently since my feet held tension in the sinus/head area. WHAT!? #MindBlown. Needless to say, I no longer trust Western medicine and will now only be getting my feet rubbed to fix any and all ailments I may have.
Saturday was my “surprise“, and it was AMAZING! Honestly, I have the most incredible, thoughtful, loving, all the nice adjectives you can imagine, boyfriend. He surprised me with AWESOME tickets to Zac Brown Band. They are one of my favorite bands and I have wanted to see them live forever. We had incredible seats, and the show was unreal. It was the best concert I’ve ever been to. I had one of the best nights I can remember and am so thankful for having such a wonderful person in my life. #GushingOver.
We stayed in Hartford Saturday night which was incredible – am I the only one who LOVES hotel beds? – and was able to sleep in until 9am. Who am I? We spent the remaining part of Sunday at the beach, soaking in some rays, running a few errands, and of course ending the weekend with some homemade pizza : ) .
I wouldn’t want to spend my weekend any other way, and am riding my weekend high into the week. We’re hoping to break the week up with a mid-week movie, and have a lot of fun things planned for this upcoming weekend.
What was your favorite part of the weekend?
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?
Looking forward to anything fun this week? Potential mid-week movie, and my return to Tuesday night RunClub!
