Hiya! Did you guys have a fun weekend? I sure did! 🙂 Saturday was spent cashing in on a Groupon that Cory and I bought a few weeks ago, and today was spent on a adventure in DC.
Let’s start with Saturday’s events, shall we?
Cory and I spent a few hours over at National Harbor at the Metropolitan Food, Libations & Luxury Home Show. Clearly, we don’t own a home – but we’ve got the food and libations part covered 😉
This is the inside of the Gaylord. It’s seriously such a neat, beautiful hotel!
Tickets to get our draannk on 😉
This is the first vendor that greeted us. Yes please!
The caramel pretzel bark was ahhhmazing.
Barbecue sause (served with non-pictured chicken sausage)
Oh my dear sweet Lord, I want a Vitamix SO badly. This guy said that he “saw my eyes light up” as we approached this station 😉 Now if only I had several hundred dollars lying around..
I’m not a beer girl – but I tasted two that I actually really liked! Agave Wheat – has anyone tried this!?
We tried brownies, chips and salsas, chocolate-covered nuts, wines, and coffees. It was a blasty blast.
Today, we experienced the most epic let down of all time.
We were stumped when we got to the address but couldn’t find the place. 3820 is what we were looking for. We were standing in front of 3816. We scanned to 3818. I let out a huge “Are you KIDDING ME?!” When we got to 3820.
Defeated, we went to Clyde’s for lunch. I ordered soup because it came in a bowl, like cereal.
It didn’t make me as happy as a cereal combo would have. But of course, this did make things a little bit better.
Frozen-Yo is a pretty tasty fro-yo place in DC. I was so upset about The Cereal Bowl that I ate way too much fro-y0 to in order to compensate (the hole in my heart, clearly). This was the first time ever that I left a fro-yo place feeling gross. It was delicious while it was happening, though.
Well friends, that’s the weekend in a nutshell! I’ve got to go grocery shopping before I can retire in my comfy pants for the evening. I’ll give you one guess as to what I’m planning on having for dinner…
Let me know – On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being FANTASTIC), how would you rate your weekend? Mine? A solid 6. Saturday was great, and I loved seeing Jamie today – but all that excitement about The Cereal Bowl just to be let down was blah.
How do you screw up something as easy as overnight oats? I don’t know what happened, all I know is that I was so looking forward to some cold oats after my workout this morning.
Thanks to Spring Break, I was able to wake up without an alarm 🙂 I made my way over to the gym and did hill intervals on the treadmill for 25 minutes and ended with 15 minutes of strength and stretching. I really, really wish I liked running. I try so hard. I just do not get any sort of enjoyment out of it. But I do it because I know it’s good for me.
So I got back to the apartment, registered for my summer class, and went to the fridge to pull out my beloved overnight oats. They looked normal, but when I went to stir them up…things weren’t so normal.
Yes, these are my upside down overnight oats. How the hell did this happen? Hmph.
I was borderline hangry, so I fixed up a nice bowl of cereal and enjoyed it almost as much.
Oatmeal squares, Honey Nut Cheerios, a couple Mini Wheaties, half a banana and some mixed nuts. It hit the spot, even if I was a little pouty about it 😉
I’ve got to go get ready for the day! I can’t believe it’s almost 10:00 and I’m not showered (TMI?) I’m meeting up with my mom this afternoon to go shopping for her dress for the wedding. It’s been tough – it seems like all the MOB dresses out there are a little too mom-ish if that makes any sense. All my mom keeps saying is “I’m NOT wearing a bolero jacket!” 🙂
Enjoy your day, friends! I’ll catch ya a little later today!
Let’s chat – What’s the last food fail you had? Do you like running? (give me some tips to trick myself into enjoying it!!) Do you like shopping? I could do it all day, but my mom isn’t so crazy about it.
