Once you start you can’t stop…
I’m talking about painting trim…not drinking wine or eating buttercream frosting…although the phrase does apply to both!
I broke out some of our house paint to touch up some spots that had been repaired – holes, dings from trying to force our couch into a small door frame. And then I just got carried away. Everything looks so much better now!
We picked up our good friend Snakey from the train station at dinnertime. He’s here for a wedding and had the evening to hang out during the rehearsal dinner. We headed downtown for dinner and not 2 seconds after arriving on the downtown mall, Snake yelled “ALBERS!!!” when we totally bumped into two more of their younger fraternity brothers (one just moved here and one is visiting).
3 turned into a fun dinner for 7 at Zocalo, one of my downtown favs!
Snake, Matt and I split a bottle of red [mid pour]
And of course had to get the Corn + Black Bean Relleno pepper. It is INCREDIBLY good!! With a red tortilla chip crust, smoked grits and a killer green sauce that must have cilantro involved. You must go to Zocalo and eat this! 50% of our table ordered it : )
We just drove Snake out to the Clifton Inn and are back and settled for the night at home.
Tomorrow I’m going on a really cool blog event that I’ve been wanting to do for years. It involves a farm. Any guesses!?
