Man, were we ever glad to see Friday last night. I feel like I have said that about every week so far this year, but to be honest, 2021 has been about as kind as 2020 so far. The crazy weather created chaos in the transportation world, and it continues into this week. Anyway – we did our normal pizza and movie night. We were all in bed pretty early.
Saturday morning, I got up and did a 45-minute Hannah ride that got me ready for the day. We then just pitter-pattered around the house cleaning and doing things. Around 130, we took Sheff down to my sister’s so we could have a date day! We were pretty excited to get to do a make-up Mardi Gras day – the first place we headed to was Rougaroux for daiquiris and po’boys. Y’all – they had this king cake daiquiri that was so good! And of course, super pretty covered in sprinkles. After lunch, we headed over to Monday Night Brewing – they had a special going on hurricane drinks, so definitely needed to head over that way. Unfortunately, the place was packed and super young, so we didn’t stay there very long. We then went over to the underground bar, Pilcrow, and it was much more our speed. Only two other people in there, and very spread away from us. I had a glass of their sangria, and it was really really good. For dinner, we hit up Bettola and had the most amazing antipasto plate and burrata. We shared an amazing pizza – and came back home to watch Forensic Files.
Sunday morning, I really wanted to get up and get a workout in. Since B wasn’t feeling the traditional exercise, we headed down to Moss Rock preserve and got a good three mile hike in. The weather couldn’t have been better – I’m hoping to continue doing that with Sheff once the weather gets nice and stays nice. There are a bunch of little streams for him to play around in and shorter trails.
Sunday afternoon, we took mimosa fixings over to my sister and had an impromptu day-drinking date. My cousin was in town on his way down to Florida, so it was fun to hang out with him too. We stayed way longer than we should have, and ended up not having a productive day, when, we had, in fact had one planned. It was a good time, though, and I’m glad we did it.
We had leftover pizza for dinner and watched Soul again – Sheff really loves that movie! We again called it an early night – I finished off a book and was asleep by 830. It was such a fun and recharging weekend!
