On Friday night, it was rainy and dreary and we thought pho sounded like a good idea, so we hit up Pho 75 in Arlington. The best! Regular chicken pho for me, large beef pho for Matt.
Saturday morning was all about relaxing – and pancakes! We used this mix which is still our current fave, and added some chia seeds and blueberries in addition to their normal add-ins (milk, eggs, oil).
Plus some strawberries and pure maple syrup (and I added a dollop of plain Greek yogurt after this picture, too, because I love the yogurt/pancake/syrup combo).
We took the dogs for a couple walks and did a bunch of stuff around the house during the day. One big item on our agenda was to revamp our guest room! We are turning our guest room (on the main floor) into Matt’s office/guitar room, and then Matt’s former office/guitar room (upstairs with our bedroom) is going to be the baby’s room. Matt was on a roll and by last night we had all the guest room stuff broken down and moved to the attic, and all his furniture set up in a configuration we both liked (the room is tiny so we had to get creative). Next up for another weekend will be picking out baby furniture, cleaning out the closets, moving down the rest of Matt’s stuff, etc. One thing at a time!
We broke for some egg salad wraps around lunchtime – I made the egg salad with mayo + dijon mustard plus salt and pepper. On Rudi’s gluten free spinach wraps (Matt is still mostly gluten free for now) with some extra veg on the side!
For dinner on Saturday, we had my parents over for a feast! Grilled steaks + roasted potatoes + salad. Delicious and fun to host them!
On Sunday morning, I met my friend Sarah for a fun jog/walk date! She’s training for a half marathon coming up in September (the Parks Half Marathon <- recap from when we did it together back in 2013, it’s a good one!) but had already done her long run on Saturday – perfect to do a casual shake-out with me the day after. I definitely like my workout buddies to be tired already when they meet up with me nowadays. 😉
We met in Georgetown and did some jogging and some walking down to the reflecting pool and back. It was so fun – made me feel like my normal self out doing a run date! I don’t know that it’s the actual running I miss so much (although I do love the feeling running gives me, and the endorphins), but rather the quality time with friends that running affords me. So this was a special treat. I hope we can do this more often again as the weather continues to cool – it had been way too long!
Also, on my to do list today is to buy a few more of those tanks (the Brooks Ghost Racerback Tank) – it’s one of the only ones that still fits me comfortably right now, and it’s nice and long to accommodate the growing bump!
After our walk/jog, it was brunch time! Sarah and I headed to Kafe Leopold’s for iced lattes (half decaf for me) and avocado toast with poached eggs (I asked for mine to be cooked a bit longer).
The rest of yesterday was dedicated to getting more stuff done around the house, and to taking the dogs to the dog park!
Matt and I were feeling something light for dinner last night – he just wanted a salad, but I was in the mood for more eggs (apparently eggs and I are having a moment right now considering how many I ate this weekend, sheesh). I whipped up salads, had leftover roasted potatoes with ketchup, and Matt made me an egg and cheese omelette to go with it. Hit the spot – I love breakfast for dinner. 🙂
I’m working downtown today – it’s looking like a busy, but not totally insane, day, which is always good for a Monday. Have a fabulous start to your week, my friends!
What’s your favorite way to eat eggs, if you’re an egg fan? Clearly I like them pretty much all ways, but over easy is my ultimate (non-pregnancy) fave, followed by omelette form. 🙂
