A restaurant. Home improvement. The market. A birthday party. Shopping. Yoga. A cookout. Great weekend packed with things!!
On a rainy Friday night we tried out a new restaurant here in Cville – Sedona Taphouse. It has a bazillion beers on tap and in bottle, so it was right up our alley. We shared a flatbread and I had a crab cake salad. Also a beer sampler with New Holland Dragon’s Milk – one of my favs!
Saturday Matt baked sweets at the bakery in the morning (which has a 3:30am start time) and Mazen and I went on a long walk on our way to the City Market. It was so crisp out I got excited for Fall and when I told this to Matt he got mad at me – for some reason he does not like “the death of Fall” when compared to the “abundance of summer.”
We will be excited when cooler weather makes our walks longer and more enjoyable though!
The market was boomin’
I paid Heather a visit to No Bull Burgers!
Mazen had a sample. He loves them!
I also found a new vendor making juice!
I decided to try out one of the greenest ones
Whew was it green!! But very refreshing for a summertime pre-yoga snack.
After the market we hung out around the house working on some projects – such as cleaning the grill.
GROSS! Soaking grates.
Making the beds
And my favorite – touching up paint!
Thanks Matt <3
Saturday evening we headed to the park to celebrate Mazen’s friend Simon’s first birthday!!
Salads, chips, veggies, BBQ!
Look at these sweet boys playin’.
Simon had a good time with his cake – first he tested the waters
And then he said “just get in my belly already!’”
Back home, once Maze went to sleep, Matt and I had a Mad Men party with Manhattans to celebrate the end of Netflix and Season 5
Here’s my Don impression:
We toasted to the end of our era only to realize that Season 6 is all on Comcast On Demand, so there is more to see! Yay!
Ahh sweet Sunday.
We were up at 5:45. I went for a short run. Then out shopping at Homegoods all by myself!
I bought the seagrass mirror on the left for the basement, which has been slowly getting a facelift of sophistication to balance out all the toys. I coveted the piece on the right for jar storage in the kitchen! It won’t fit in mine – maybe it will fit in yours?
Late afternoon I joined my friend Genevieve for a BAPTISTE HOT POWER YOGA class!! Our friend Curry is working on opening a studio. While it is yet to be determined how or when, she’s getting the word out with some pop-up classes. We flowed in 90 degrees for 90 minutes in her open living room with about 12 other people and had a great class!! Tons of sweat. Loved it.
Karen joined us for Sunday dinner from the grill – carrots (great grilled!), eggplant and London Broil.
Matt and I shared an ice cream sandwich from the market for dessert. Yum!
