It was a pretty quiet one this past weekend although it did kick off with a rather amazing picture message from my brother that made my day.
If only we could all be so fabulous..
With all of the going out we’ve done over the past few, we decided to lay low a bit. Saturday I was working in the morning and when I got home we hit the road to check out Grocery Outlet [think Aldi but with name-brands]. We really had our bargain-hunting pants on this weekend! It ended up being a pretty successful trip knowing that we’d still be going to Berkeley Bowl on Sunday. But all in all, I’d say we got some good deals!
Yesterday I got up early for a quick run before Nathan and I went for a hike. There are still so many place we haven’t seen yet and Joaquin Miller Park is right around the corner from us.
The fog was pretty heavy when we first got there but it really burned off within about an hour. We tried to stop at a lookout point on our way up the mountain but you couldn’t see 5 feet in front of you! We were able stop on the way back down and could actually see the fog moving out. Pretty cool! It was a really nice area and a great place to check out.
Later in the day we lucked out and got to watch our Orioles since the game was on ESPN.
I don’t mind the game being rained out at all.. an O’s win after 5 innings? I’ll take it! We’re in first and it feels so good!
And while the game was going, this baby was roasting for an awesome Sunday dinner.
Such a great way to end the weekend.
