^^ How about that neon green spring vibe!? Our weather here has been flip flopping between April showers and May flowers. Friday was a rainy mess, Saturday morning the sun came out (above) and Sunday the rain was back! But I will take warm rain over freezing cold any day.
On Friday night Thomas’s mom offered to babysit so we could have a date night <3
We went back to Public because it’s our new favorite spot! We like sitting at the bar, but somehow we lucked out and got one of the window tables.
A plus for being earlybirds and going to dinner at 5:30: happy hour prices! Oysters are only $1.25 before 6pm.
The Big Island Pearls are our favorites. My favorites are the ones described as buttery.
We debated and debated a dinner strategy (mixed apps, mussels and sides, two entrees, one entree + app + sides) and finally settled on the big steam pot Thomas had been craving for a few visits. He was after those snow crab legs! We shared the pot plus a side of asparagus and fries. Those crab legs were goooooood!
Somehow we left the Keys without getting a really amazing slice of key lime pie. (I had one but it had a chocolate crust – no thank you!) Luckily Public’s is amazing. Super tart!
On Saturday morning I had toast with peanut butter before heading to the gym for athletic conditioning class. ‘Twas a good one!
I’ve had such fun testing out all of my products. So far I really like everything. I took some before pictures of my skin so I can compare in a few weeks/months.
Day on the left, night on the right.
Lunch was the last of our quiche from last week (with a detached crust!) and a homemade kale salad with bacon and avocado.
Birchie and I did a lot of snuggling while Thomas and Mazen went to Scott Stadium to greet the UVA bball champions!
I also did some prep for a patio party we hosted!
We had pork tacos for dinner. (I had two! Always two.)
We had a few ACAC friends over to enjoy the spring weather on the patio. Mr. B enjoyed all of the attention!
Mr. Mazen enjoyed staying up past bedtime and making a s’more. He’s wearing a headlamp, by the way. Such a great gadget for a kid.
On Sunday we did Sunday things: lazy breakfast, blog post writing, family time, lots of soccer, dinner.
