I don’t often recap our weekends, but we stayed busy this weekend…doing a lot of nothing, I think. Those are the best kinds of weekends in my opinion.
Friday I found myself in Cherokee, NC. It’s a little over an hour from Asheville, but much longer from where I started my day. So I just felt like I spent most of my day in the car (which I did.) I’m also still battling a vicious cold, and I didn’t have high hopes for the weekend.
That night, we went to some of a friend’s birthday dinner. They featured tacos, which were awesome. And my kid ate dog food. Twice. Because…awesome. I brought Lucas home early and the husband stayed to play games and drink margaritas. I was out cold before 11 p.m.
Saturday, the boy and I ran errands in the morning and then spent time in the back yard playing t-ball and sliding.
There were also jam sessions in his bed. Obviously.
The afternoon found us napping (Lucas and the husband) or folding clothes (me). And then we took a long walk to see the animals nearby and to play on a playground. The temps were in the low 50s and we have to take advantage of every day it hits 50 degrees.
I was invited out to a girls’ night for a friend’s birthday, so I joined the girls for dinner at Pack’s Tavern. I immediately ordered the Attitude Adjustment. And then I had two.
Oh, and fried pickle chips, because….why wouldn’t you order them?? (I followed them up with a salad.)
Since I was in no condition to drive at that point, I met another friend, Carol, downtown at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. I ordered their chocolate mint brownie and a hot chocolate. I also picked up truffles for my husband. We headed back to Carol’s place (she’s just across the street from the Chocolate Lounge) and talked for a few hours, allowed me to drink enough water and get back to driving condition. (The $100 sign was one someone created that morning as one of their “place” numbers.)
Sunday was much of the same. A little preparation for the week and the snow forecast, and doing some last minute prep for a large consignment sale this week (I have to drop my stuff off whenever I can. This snow is really messing with my plans!)
My husband ate his truffles. It was pretty Saturday night. By Sunday? It just looked like pretty poop when he held it up for me. From what I hear, it was good.
Oh, I also booked our hotel room for the Type-A Conference (never too early to be prepared for that conference) and signed up for Blogging Concentrated, which is going to be in Asheville at the end of May! I’m super excited about both conferences and I’m so ready to get my blog-on!
How was your weekend? Are you preparing for snow in your neck of the woods? I’m SO over this winter, and I’ve hardly had any snow to complain about!
