Weekend Review

Posted Sep 19 2012 12:00am

I know it’s already hump day but I was sick Monday and Tuesday with little energy to blog.  So I did lots of sleeping.  But I had a fantastic weekend with a new friend and old friends.

Friday night I met Alex (from The Run Within ) for coffee (err…we just talked..no coffee) and then watched Vegucated at Tranquil Space .

 

I had a blast hanging out with Alex.  I can’t wait till we can get together again!

Saturday morning, I drove a bajillion miles to Virginia Beach to see my sorority sister April , her husband, and daughter (who just turned 2).  April has been one of my friends who has been there through thick and thin.  She’s seen me at my worse and she’s seen me at my best.  After a rough year (giving birth while her husband was deployed), April is in her happy place with a great husband, adorable daughter in a lovely house and fantastic job.  I was glad to get see her adult life in Virginia Beach.  But even though, we’ve both grown up, we (mainly me) likes to goof around:

I look quite sexy with a mustache.

And even though I dragged all my packaged meals down to her house, we decided to go out to dinner in Williamsburg (sans baby and husband) for girl time.  April really wanted me to try this restaurant called Food For Thought .

First our waitress brought us a bread basket.  Unfortunately, none of the bread was vegan.

But that’s okay because I was saving room for the hummus platter.

Honestly, I am a hummus snob but this is some of the best hummus I have ever eaten.  I wanted to order 3000000 servings of the hummus to take home and live on for the rest of the year.  Plus they served veggies with the hummus, most restaurants only serve pita.

For dinner, I order the ultimate vegetarian and veganized it:

Spaghetti squash with a vegan basil pesto

Now I wasn’t super hungry after all that hummus but the spaghetti squash was so delicious I might have eaten it all.  Though I really didn’t touch the rice because I’m not the biggest rice fan.  April ordered the crab cake and steak after politely asking me if I would be upset if she ordered meat…which doesn’t (except veal: veal really offends me).

We left with full bellies and headed back to April’s house to sleep.  However, we woke up nice and early to take the baby on a nice walk through April’s housing community.  It’s a beautiful community with a walking trail and millions of ponds.  I felt so grownup walking with a baby in the stroller and discussing our favorite houses.

We dropped the baby off, got pedicures/manicures, and I headed home.  I had a fantastic weekend filled with lovely friends and delicious food.  I wish I hadn’t fallen ill after work on Monday but now I’m riding high thinking of my great weekend and I can’t wait to do it all again soon!
