This has been a delightful weekend so far! I don’t know if it’s the nice weather or the fact that I’ve been sleeping really well, but it’s just been a good couple of days!
Saturday morning, Eric and I went to the Urban Harvest farmers market. It was gorgeous outside, so it was pretty busy, but we managed to get a lot of good stuff.
After our visit to the farmers market, we went to the bank to open a savings account, browsed Barnes & Noble and Home Goods, and then hit Target, where I got supplies to make a fabulous lunch. I consider my sandwich-making skills pretty top-notch, and I was really proud of this creation: sliced bagels topped with turkey, muenster cheese, red onions, green peppers, Romaine lettuce, tomato, avocado, and hummus.
It was so satisfying! After lunch, I worked on some things around the house and then decided that I’d work out. I’ve been working out on Sundays lately, but we were planning to go out to dinner last night, and I really like working out to bridge the gap between Saturday errands and Saturday night activities. On days like this, I’ll find myself wanting to take a shower and do my hair and makeup over before I go out, but I often don’t feel quite dirty enough to do that, so I like to get sufficiently dirty first? I don’t know, I just like sweating it out and then starting over from scratch.
I was kind of cutting it close with time, so I found myself pushing myself a little harder in an effort to get the most out of my workout. I did a 20-minute spin and a 20-minute yoga podcast. I hadn’t done that combo in a few weeks, and it ended up being pretty tough; I felt really tired after (in a good way). And sweaty enough to warrant the full shower/makeup/hair to-do.
Eric and I haven’t gone on a legit date in forever, and I keep trying to plan them…and then my plans keep failing. From bad weather ruining plans to things selling out quickly, I just can’t seem to make a date happen. But last night’s date worked out pretty well!
We decided to try Harvest Organic Grille for the first time last night and it was really good. We started the meal with bread and dipping sauces and we ordered a bottle of Malbec. I ordered the filet with grilled asparagus and a loaded baked potato for my entrée,. Eric ordered the mixed grill, which had steak, chicken, shrimp, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and chimichurri sauce. Both of our dinners were delicious and I’d go back there for dinner again, though lunch and the brunch buffet sound worth trying too. The atmosphere and service were both good and it was just a really good date night overall.
I’m spending the rest of my day working on freelance articles. Have a great Sunday!
