Weekend Recap: So. Much. Food

It’s Monday again AND the first day of spring. I’m excited about one of those things, so while trying to get in the head space for the other, let’s do the weekend recap! 🙂

If you saw my post on Friday, you know I was missing Ireland like crazy. I spent a lot of the day re-reading my blog posts from the trip and remembering how beautiful it was there. Of course, I got some work in as well, though Fridays tend to be incredibly quiet. I took my lunch break around 12:30 and headed to the gym for Ben to train me.

We’re super spectacular at taking photos together.

After my workout, I went back to my apartment, worked the rest of the afternoon and logged off around 5. I honestly don’t remember what I did next, but I’m sure at some point I went over to Ben’s apartment and hung out there for the rest of the night.

Saturday morning I got up around 8 and got ready for my hair appointment. I found a salon called Edit just a bit from my place, so I made an appointment for a hair cut and color consultation. Loved my stylist and made an appointment in April for a hair color!

After the cut, I walked over to the gym to meet Ben. The gym was crazy busy, so we sat and chatted for about an hour before hitting a leg day. My lower back was a little finicky, but we got in a good, solid workout. Of course, Ben was talking about burgers the whole time and I realized I haven’t had one in over a year (what?!) so we headed to a new-to-us burger place called Burger Bar right after working out. We both got bloody marys (yummmm), Ben got some ridiculous burger with like three meats on it (#protein) and I built my own with sweet potato tots.

Our food was soooooo good and the music they were playing was AWESOME. We’ll definitely be back. 🙂

After the burgers, we headed back to our places to shower and then I ended up back at Ben’s at some point. It was our four monthiversary (heh) so we decided we’d stop being hermits like we are every other weekend and go out to a bar for a drink. I don’t have any photos, but the bar was packed, I didn’t love my drink (Ben loved his) and then we left around midnight to go to bed. Party-ANIMALS.

Sunday we slept in a *tiny* bit before heading to Starbucks. I went before Ben and played around on my iPad because I apparently decided I wasn’t having a productive weekend.

Ben met me there, but I left soon after to meet my friend Amanda for brunch at The Dawson. I was able to walk there which was the BEST and I got a bloody mary (typical) and avocado toast. SO GOOD.

We sat and chatted for awhile, then randomly decided to go get a manicure down the road. Our nail tech was so fun and it was a nice way to end the afternoon!

Later in the day, Ben and I watched a few episodes of a documentary series we’re into, then watched a funny movie before calling it a night. Both of us start getting stressed by Sunday evenings (for different reasons) so it was fun to watch a ridiculous movie (Penguins of Madagascar if you’re curious) and forget about everything else.

That was my weekend! This week is going to be a little interesting, but nothing crazy. My coworker is out of the office later this week and I get to cover for her, so I’ve been invited to way more meetings than I’d like. At least it should keep me slightly busy, right?

How was your weekend?
Are you a brunch person?

Linking up with Katie!

    I loved the Dawson and can’t wait to go back. I am definitely a brunch person. haha If it makes you feel better, Graham and I went to an engagement party at this penthouse party space Saturday night and were in bed by 11:30. hahah Also, somehow I took no photos of the view. This is why I can’t do weekend recaps.

      Same! It was so good. I definitely want to go when it’s nice enough to sit outside. Haha! I’m glad we had a similar Saturday night. 🙂

      Yay for getting back into lifting!! Haha, that’s awesome. Glad to hear there’s another person like me. 😉 This morning as I was writing the post, I was like “I feel like my entire weekend never changes … workout, boyfriend, food, etc.”
