I had every intention of having this post scheduled and ready to go early this morning. Until I fell asleep on the couch last night while we were watching House of Cards. I blame it on the beer all the excitement 😉
We’ve been having such a great time with my parents here. I don’t mean to leave you hanging, but hey, life just gets in the way. So let’s do a little recap so far.
Post-barre muscles with Mom!
Farmers’ market lunch.
Salmon & Hamachi Kama. A new favorite.
Ooh that pizza..
WE WILL NOT!
A fun trip to Oxbow Public Market. Let the drinking begin!
Blue Bottle Coffee.. strongest in the world! Ha.
My 2 favorite Orioles fans.. right?
The best chick peas ever.
Sunny day selfie.
The beginning of the end.
The best ending to our beer-filled excursions. Our most favorite ice cream from Ici.
Now excuse me while we go drink and eat some more!
This week is officially known in my house as the “detox before retox” week. Just as when my parents were visiting, we didn’t mess around when Nathan’s mom was here either. Especially since we were celebrating Nathan’s birthday! We ran all over town and had a lot of fun trying new restaurants and visiting new areas of the city. Next weekend, we’re taking another long weekend to celebrate our first anniversary with a wine country getaway. So as I said, detox to retox 😉
I took a ton of pictures over the past few days so I wanted to share some of my favorites. Obviously, lots of food and drink made the cut!
Birthday fried chicken and beer. He was in heaven.
BIRTHDAY LUNCH! Just a boy with his pizza and beer.
Now excuse me while I eat my boiled chicken and steamed kale all week 😉 But really..
