What. A. Week
Jon’s sister and our friend Nick ended up staying another night 🙂 I already had plans for a nail/hair/dinner date with my mom so that happened first. We had dinner at Tijuana Flats. We’ve been there a few times now and before that I hadn’t been since college. I must say it’s a lot better than I remembered! For a chain they really have it going on. They make everything to order, use hormone free chicken and you can customize your meal like crazy. And even though it’s no Taco Bus, they’re food always tastes pretty fresh! I’m a fan 🙂
Once I got home we rallied to go out for a drink at our fav place, The Ale and the Witch. They’re having their 1 year anniversary this week! We all were a bit tired so no whacky shenanigans except for going through silly trivia cards and laughing at how easy and/or ridiculous they are.
I’m usually no good on Fridays. The weight of the week just makes me want to lounge on the couch all night. And I was especially tired after a long week of nights out and visitors. Alas, I rallied for a girls night at my friend Rebekah’s. Glad I did!
It was low key, which was just what I needed.
White wine, beer cheese dip with bread and fritos, hummus and veggies, brownies and banana nut muffins. Yum.
Those movies never made it on. Instead we ended up gabbing all night about high school boyfriends and cats 🙂
Saturday was filled with errands with Mom, plus a stop for homemade ice cream. I was feeling the urge to satisfy my inner child and got Superman.
Yummy and fun to eat. Anyone know exactly what’s in this stuff?
Sunday was ultimate girliness. Jon’s mom and sisters came up for the day to accompany me and my mom to the Junior League’s Tea Party at the Hilton Bayfront.
I volunteered to be a model in the fashion show so I had to get there early to rehearse. Luckily I was done right as everyone was taking their seats. I had an hour to peruse the raffle items, eat some finger sandwiches and cupcakes and chat before I was needed backstage.
I love the rush of being on stage. A fashion show feels the same to me as a show, except there’s no long weeks of rehearsals and no lines to memorize. It’s just get up there and strut your stuff. Or “turn and burn” as Jon’ sister Tori put it 😛 Getting your hair done and putting on pretty clothes certainly helps the experience as well. I wore some red jeans and a black party dress that I absolutely loved from White House Black Market. Maybe they’ll show up at the outlet in a few months?
After the party we headed back to mine and Jon’s place, where he had a delicious roast pork, black beans and rice and plantain dinner waiting for us.
Jon’s black beans and rice would most definitely be on my “Last Meal” plate.
The night ended with Dulce de Leche cheesecake. It didn’t turn out like Jon wanted but it was still yummy!
After everyone left I most definitly passed out on the couch at 8 p.m. I tried so hard to keep my eyes open but it did not happen. I. Was. Pooped.
Monday was uneventful, but I have another big week planned!
Tonight: Keep St. Pete Local Launch Party
Wednesday: St. Pete Chamber Young Professional Happy Hour, Junior League Committee Dinner Meeting
Thursday: The Ale and the Witch Birthday Party
Saturday: Les Miz at The Straz plus fun with Jon’s sisters!
What do you have planned for the week?
