…That Wasn’t There Before. Da-daaaaa da-da daaaaa.
Happy weekend!! We tried a new restaurant today and went to see Beauty and the Beast, so I figured I’d pop in to share like old times : )
First off I had a PB and banana with too much coffee before heading to ACAC for Afterburn. Such a rockin’ class taught by Claire today! Loved the choreographed dance moves at the end.
Sometimes I get worried about Mazen and feel guilty for dropping him off at Kids Zone, school or camp, but every time I go to pick him up he is having a blast! He’s such an extrovert. Here he is sandwiched between four (cropped out) friends with the biggest smile on his face. He did not want to leave until I told him we were going to the movies : )
After a quick shower, we met our friend Jess at Mezeh at Stonefield for lunch. This was my first visit and my socks were blown off!
It was like a mix between Chipotle and Roots, with a huge buffet of Mediterranean bowl toppings. You can choose between grains, greens or a mix, add proteins, toppings, sauces – the works.
I had kale and arugula with bulgur salad, chicken, carrots, pita chips, olives, spicy eggplant, dill-yogurt dip, and tzatziki and harissa dressings. I brought about half of this home – it was huge!
Also – look at the fun juice options!
After lunch, we headed to the theater (aka the “feuter”) for the show. Traditional escalator selfie!
M loved posing with the Power Rangers and Batman. My little boy!
I LOVED the movie. Emma Watson was brilliant, and the whole show was magical. I loved hearing all of those great songs (I know every word and breath). The ending was definitely the best part! (Though I did think it was a little long overall, especially for Mazen.) He wasn’t scared one bit. He isn’t easily scared though. When we got home I dusted off my old Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, and he is currently sleeping to the songs!
Dinner was a fun little meal that ended up being similar to my lunch – oops! Harissa chicken pitas with arugula salad and yogurt sauce with roasted carrot fries. (That’s cranberry juice, FYI!)
Tomorrow (Saturday) I am heading away for a night for a little girls trip. So pumped!!
