You know that relieved feeling you get when you realize you’re getting back into the swing of things? That’s how I feel after the weekend I had! I was running all over the city like I used to in Charlotte. Making friends, working out, eating good food. It was just my kind of weekend!
Saturday morning I had to work, which went as well as work can go on a Saturday. However, I was feeling a little creative at my desk and did make some nifty things. For one, I made my phone nice and girl by tying a ribbon around my phone. I also made a pretty mousepad to add some color to my desk. Slowly but surely I am making this place look more like me.
After work, I went and grabbed dinner and drinks with my new blogger friend, Jacque Amadi (check out her blog here).
We went to a place new to both of us called Public School 214. The service was good and the food was even better!
The menu, which looks like a composition book (clever), is full of fresh ingredients. The also restaurant uses local foods as much as possible.
For appetizers, we ordered the Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower and the Fiery Calamari.
Bother were DELICIOUS
For my entree, I had the Fig and Prosciutto pizza.
Jacque had the House Pepperoni pizza.
Leave it to us to go to this awesome restaurant and order pizza, though I must say it was delicious.
They even had cute little to go bags.
Of course, with it being Saturday night, I had to watch the Mayweather fight.
He is always blinged out. But these were my most memorable moments from the fight:
Tom Brady showed up too much
Jamie Fox ruined the national anthem b/c of church organ music
May weather’s jacket was fire
PDiddy and Mark Walberg were perfect at the introductions
Pacquiao always looks so happy
His shirt says Jesus is the name of the Lord! Awesome!!!!
Jimmy Kimmel walking out with Pacquiao and jumping up and down with him….hilarious
I want both of them to win!! Pacquiao is such a good guy. Mayweather should stay undefeated
Okay, I change my mind. I need Mayweather to win.
Now I must admit, I was nodding off throughout the entire fight. I mean, who stays up til midnight and watches this craziness? I’m no the youngin’ I was last year. I just can’t do these things anymore. *shrugs* Oh well!
Sunday was really good for me too! It started off with an awesome service at my church, Shoreline
. We’re going through a series about relationships which is blowing my mind.
After church, I went to Lyfe Kitchen
and ordered my go to “fast food”. Quinoa Crunch Bowl with Chicken (and extra hot sauce).
After lunch I piddled around the apartment. Did some painting, and even hung a few (temporary) pictures up in my living room.
…don’t worry, I’m adding much more.
Let me start by saying that I had no clue it was a spin class. It all makes since (with the name) now, but I was truly shocked when I walked in the room! However, it was really fun. The studio is super cool and has all of these Broadway style lights that make you feel like a rockstar. But when I tell you it kicked my BUTT!
IT KICKED MY BUTT!
I was SO tired that I didn’t talk to anyone afterwards! I didn’t even have the energy to!
And there were a LOT of people there! But at least I wasn’t the only tired one….
And despite my being tired, I was still ready to take a groupie!
You always have to be prepared for those things!
It really was a lot of fun! The Beyonce and the lights really got me! Plus, they gave us some fun goodie bags afterwards. It was like the icing on the cake. (ooooh cake! 🙂 )
But now you see why my weekend was SO fun. This blogger was so pooped this morning that she hardly wanted to get out of bed and go to work! (But my birthday is coming up and this girl wants to hit the casino).
It was a blast, and I can’t wait until my next events!
