Good morning, my friends! I hope you all had nice weekends! Mine was a great mix of socializing, relaxing, and outdoorsy fun. On Saturday, Matt and I had our friends Tom and Janice over for brunch at our place!
None of us had any big plans on the agenda this weekend and we’d been meaning to have Tom and Janice over for awhile now, so it was perfect – brunch it was!
Matt took charge of the cooking and whipped up quite a feast for all of us. The main event was a veggie/egg/sausage scramble:
Plus some really good roasted fingerling potatoes with onion, shallots, garlic, rosemary, and salt and pepper:
We all enjoyed some coffee while he cooked. I’d never tried Gevalia brand before – it was good! We’re definitely going to add it to our standard rotation.
We also enjoyed some delicious strawberries. So big and juicy!
When we were done with coffee, we busted out the champagne. Tom and Janice brought a bottle of Prosecco – my favorite!
Champagne + brunch = win.
Shortly after busting open the champagne it was time to feast. Also on our plates was some bacon and delicious farmers market bread!
Ready to eat.
Thanks again for joining us, Tom and Janice! And thanks to Gevalia and Safeway for the coffee & supplies.
Other weekend highlights included going to Jazz in the Sculpture Garden on Friday night with some of the girls:
Jazz in the sculpture garden is, exactly as it sounds, live music in the sculpture garden down on the mall every Friday night in summer. The jazz is really just background music – everyone brings picnics and hangs out eating and drinking (no booze is allowed in, but they sell sangria that’s actually really yummy)! It gets REALLY crowded but we got there early and got a good spot in the shade. It was the perfect weather for it on Friday!
Other highlights included a great workout at CrossFit Arlington on Saturday morning, brunch with family on Sunday morning, and relaxing with Matt at our apartment pool. I capped off the weekend yesterday evening with a nice run down on the mall with my friend Karen. We made it 3.5 miles at exactly an 8 minute/mile pace. Felt great to get out there!
I’m hopping on the metro in a few minutes – off to an office fitness center where I’m providing some nutrition consultations to their members through my AnneTheRD business. Have a great day, everyone!
How was your weekend? Any good adventures or great workouts? I’m getting excited to start training for my first full marathon soon – July 1 is my training start date! More on that soon.
