Today has been a little bit of a slow start after last night’s festivities. It was a fun night and celebrating was in order because one of my best friends graduated from law school yesterday!! Let’s rewind a bit, shall we?
After work, I came home and made a quick snack to tide me over.
Almond Butter + Crofters Europe on Whole Wheat Potato Bread with a glass of Almond Milk. Then I went and got a pedicure since the pool opens this weekend, plus my eyebrows done. It was fun and while getting my toes done, I finished reading Harvesting the Heart by Jodi Picoult. This book was pretty slow to start and took me a while to get into, but then it got really good and I couldn’t put it down about half way through. She’s one of my favorite authors and I’d never even heard of this book, but I found it in my Community Book Room.
After that, the boyfriend and I went and got a bite to eat at Hamlet, a bar/restaurant close to our apartment. I had a few glasses of wine, and got a fire roasted artichoke to start.
I shared, but probably ate about 2/3 of this. It was pretty good but I would have liked it to be cooked a bit more so the edible parts were a little softer. I also ordered a half salad:
Which was pretty big for a half size! It had greens, candied pecans, cashews, dried cranberries, tomatoes, avocado, and goat cheese. I ordered the dressing on the side but didn’t use it because there was a lot going on in the salad as it was. It was delish! The only problem was it had chicken in it and I didn’t realize it until it came out the first time, so I had to send it back.
After that, I went and met the new JD in DC for some drinks at Madhatter. It was a lot of fun and I felt like I was in college again – not getting home until after 2am! I can’t even tell you the last time I was out that late. It felt like being back in college! Here’s a pic of us girls at the bar:
Jess (the law school grad!!), Lianne, Me, and Katie (Jess’s little sis).
And that’s one of Lianne, me, and my vodka soda. 😉
Since I got home so late, I slept later than I have in years – until almost 12!! I woke up earlier than that but wasn’t feeling so hot so made myself go back to sleep and when I woke up for the final time I was feeling pretty good. I decided to have a stabilizing breakfast (slash lunch) which was actually delicious.
I pan fried an egg and melted some cheese on top, and then placed it on a bed of microgreens for an egg sandwich.
It was on Whole Wheat Potato Bread and reallly hit the spot.
I also had a sliced up apple to go with the egg sandwich.
Yum. I have been slacking a lot on cooking lately but I’m hoping to get back into it this weekend. I am so excited to have 3 days off and my boyfriend actually has the whole weekend off too! Not sure exactly what today will bring, but we might go thriftin’, shop for a few more plants, and get geared up for a little Memorial Day Party that we’re having on Monday with some friends by the pool. Today is kind of gloomy and overcast, but tomorrow and Monday are supposed to be really hot and sunny, so hopefully I’ll log some hours by the pool. 🙂
