Goooooddd morning!! We had such a fun time together this weekend. I took Mazen to the Albemarle County Fair on Friday evening! We met some of our friends there and enjoyed riding the train and saying “hi” to all of the animals.
This guy is just back from his marathon training, which he ran in his moisture-wicking workout shirt:
And this guy says, “wuz up y’all?!”.
Apparently, Dada lets him get slushies, so I had to cave. Seeing the joy in his face > the guilt of artificial sugar syrup in his body. (Good news: the white shirt did just fine!)
We did a honey tasting together and checked out the tractors.
We weighed the food options for dinner up at the fair and decided to hit the road in search of something a little more nutritious. Chipotle was on the way home! I don’t go there often but it was delicious, and I love that they care about the quality of their meat.
Saturday morning smoothies!
On Saturday morning we hung out with our plumber, because on Friday night I discovered that the brewery sink was overflowing with a week’s worth of rotting kitchen sewage. OMG. You would not believe the smell! Here’s the sink after I spent over an hour cleaning it and the floor beneath it on Sunday morning…
Saturday lunch with Lauren! Salad with homemade herby dressing, manchego, peppers, and a pesto parmesan chicken burger from Whole Foods. Plus we shared a glass of wine!
Mazen went to spend the afternoon with Matt, and I headed to a pool party. This cute swan came in the Must Have Box that Popsugar sent me! He loves those Lila Wines.
The pool party ended quickly when this happened:
I went to dinner at The Fitzroy on Saturday night. It’s in the old Blue Light Grill space, and they did a fantastic job with the renovations!
I shared some delicious BBQ shrimp, a fluffy pretzel, halibut and a kale Caesar salad. Thumbs up!
On Sunday morning Mazen and I ran lots of errands after a few hours of house cleaning. Fuel first:
We went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to look for a beach umbrella that was out of stock, and bought air fresheners for the brewery instead. We had lunch at Zoe’s Kitchen. Love the salmon kebobs there! Then grocery store.
On Sunday afternoon we went to a cute birthday party for a friend, and had Dr. Ho’s pizza and homemade strawberry cake for dinner. I didn’t do much cooking at home this weekend, so I’m making up for it this week!
