Hey there! Apparently posting on Mondays isn’t something I do anymore, so I’m popping in today so share my weekend highlights with you. I worked Saturday, so it was more like a half weekend. I still managed to have some fun and get in some quality relaxation, though!
Saturday night, Riley and I decided to check out a new Mexican restaurant in town, La Terraza. They’ve only been open for about two weeks, but apparently word has spread, because the place was packed! We put our name on the waiting list, then headed to the bar to get some giant mugs of Dos Equis.
As soon as we were seated, I got my chips and queso. So bad for you, but so. so. satisfying.
I normally try to keep it healthy when I eat out, but that night I just dove right on in. I ordered the carne asada tacos for my entree and they were phenomenal. The tacos were nice and soft, the steak was juicy, and the sauce and pico were super flavorful and spicy.
I ate two before getting full, so I’m hoping to use the leftovers for a steak/eggs burrito of some kind. We’ll see how it goes.
Sunday was a great day because I (finally!) got to sleep in and be a bum. I lazed around all morning while Riley was at work. Sipped coffee by the fireplace…
Made myself some waffles for breakfast…
Then crawled back into bed for two hours to read and snuggle with Captain, just because I could….
It was glorious. After lunch time, I got my act together and cleaned the house, then went grocery shopping. Later that afternoon, Riley and I were watching football and I was halfway through a beer when I got a huge urge to go running. I laced up and ran through my neighborhood for 3.5 miles. Who knew half a beer would give me an energy boost? Guess that’s my new pre-workout beverage of choice. Kidding!
It turned out to be a great run! I didn’t time myself, but I listened to some new music, enjoyed the cooler air, and relished the perfect fall weather. I left my house late in the afternoon, so the sky was changing all kinds of perfect colors while I ran, which made it even more enjoyable. I thought about making it to 5 miles, but it started to get dark so I wanted to get home. I know lots of people run in the dark, but I’m a scaredy cat.
Sunday night I made a delicious meat sauce to go with some cheese ravioli, so I’ll have tasty leftovers for work this week. I’ve been really good lately about packing a lunch and not eating out. On that note, I’ll see you guys tomorrow for WIAW!
