Well, another long weekend has come and gone and Darren is safe and sound back in Wisconsin. 45ish days until we see each other again, and hopefully we’ll have a house by then.
We had a great weekend here in VA together that started almost the second Dar got off the plane on Friday evening. We navigated home through rush-hour traffic where we met up with my roommate Dani and her boyfriend to head out to dinner. We decided to check out the new Market Tavern (used to be Harry’s Tap Room), and while a little on the pricey side for regular visits, it was delicious and nice for a special occasion. Oh and two words, bread bar. That is all.
Spotted, my new Bridier Baubles Boca Grande necklace and matching earrings that came as a free gift!
Friday night lasted much longer that I’m used to, and I was dragging a little the next morning when it was time to get up and get ready for kickball. Yes, kickball and all it brings with it is back for another season, which means afternoons spent on The Mall followed by Miller Lights and tots in the evening. Bring, it, on.
After winning our game, and a few hours in the bar, Darren and I said our goodbyes and headed home to hang out and relax. After a pit stop at TJ’s (which I’m appalled to say my love did not like) we figured out a solution as how to grill our dinner in the rain.
Why we never thought to move the grill to our front porch I do not know, but it worked just fine. Darren braved the cold and rain, while I kept the couch warm :). The kebabs were delicious, thanks to TJ’s pre-marinated meat and cheap produce. So what if they don’t sell marinade, you don’t need it.
Sunday was spent lazing around watching movies, until we pulled ourselves up off the couch and joined some of my friends to watch the Caps game at Whitlows. Darren is a strange guy, and not really a big sports fan, so I spent some time secretly explaining why such penalties were called the Stanley Cup playoff structure. Shh, don’t tell him I told you.
The rest of the weekend was spent much the same way, drinking, eating, and lounging. We did venture out for few hours yesterday to drop my bridesmaid dress off for altering and some home shopping at Crate and Barrel. We managed to pick out flatware and plates that we both like, which is a huge accomplishment.
Today it’s back to life as normal, with no days off until the end of May. Luckily, Amy, Jess, and Steph are coming to visit Kacy an I in a mere 10 days and I CAN’T WAIT! It’s going to be a ridiculously fun weekend, and I’m excited to finally meet Jess in person. Although, sometimes I forget that I haven’t. Well, happy Tuesday you fools. s
