Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a great weekend. We stayed local and pretty low-key but definitely enjoyed the beautiful weather that we had.
Friday night, we kicked off the weekend with a trip to the gym…
…immediately followed by beer and delicious food at Cato’s, our favorite bar down the street.
Such a wild and crazy Friday! Which lead to an even wilder Saturday.
Saturday was the best. After lunch, we took a nice walk and then came home and totally vegged on the couch for the rest of the day. Dinner in and a movie was the perfect ending.
Sunday, I was making my way over to work around 7:45 when I saw the first Oakland marathoner running down the road. The race started at 7:30 and I was between miles 3 and 4. Holy hell, he’s fast!
And he was followed by lots more runners! It was so cool to watch everyone go by and cheer for them.
After work, it was time for lunch and groceries. Lunch was awesome! One of my favorite things about this restaurant, Southie, is that they will happily make any sandwich into a salad. So rather than the sandwich, I asked for the chilaquiles as a salad. BOOM! They made it happen.
The black bean mash was way more delicious than it looks 😉 And Nathan’s corned beef hash with poached eggs was equally as delicious.
How have we missed out on their brunch for so long? Aside from that whole work thing yesterday, it was quite a nice weekend. And now I’m looking forward to powering through this week. It’s a doozy but I think I’ll make it out alive!

Food for Thought
How did you celebrate the weekend?
Have you or would you ever run a marathon?
My weekend included a few of the same things- dining out, drinks, working out, brunch & movies!
Hope your week is good!
I really need to find a recipe for the black bean mash. It sounds delicious & perfect paired with eggs for breakfast.
