Hello and happy Monday! On a scale of 1 to 10, how ready are you for another work week? I don’t think I am even registering on the scale today. My pattern of crappy sleep returned this weekend, thus making waking up this Monday morning ultra difficult. Let’s hope my sleep schedule regulates itself by tonight, because I 100% do not want to deal with being exhausted all week! Waking up at 4 am and watching International House Hunters aside, let’s recap this weekend, shall we?
Friday night Jake and I ventured to the opening of Grapevine Brewery in downtown Grapevine! The place was wall to wall with people, but while it was crazy crowded, the general vibe of the evening seemed to be chill and fun. On tap for the evening was Lakefire (rye pale ale), Monarch (American wheat), Sir Williams (English brown ale), and Night Watch (oatmeal stout), as well as few other seasonal selections, but I couldn’t quite catch the names from where we were standing (sorry!). I opted for Lakefire, while Jake tried out the Monarch.
Both were great, and Jake and I decided we will definitely be back for more! We’ ll probably wait a week or two for the crowds to simmer so we can really enjoy the place. Thankfully due to it’s location we could easily pop in and hang out after a dinner on Main Street, so I foresee a lot of beer in my future this summer…
Saturday morning my Dad and I ran the Sweat for Sangria Foodie 5k in Southlake, and it was so much fun! It was hosted by Social Running, a casual group of runners in the DFW area, and they were super friendly and put on a really organized and fun run for us all! The run started in Southlake Town Center, through a nearby neighborhood, and ended at Campania Pizza, where at the finish we were treated to sangria, pizza and caesar salads! I opted for just a glass on sangria, and it proved to be the best post race treat of all time.
After getting mildly day drunk and cleaning up, we headed up to my grandparent’s place to help with some yard work. Oh, and be “we”, I mean my Dad and Jake, and I played with the dogs the whole time. Once we were home I immediately got started on another Blue Apron meal! Saturday’s course included cornmeal crusted catfish, cucumber tomato salad, and remoulade creamy potatoes!
Excuse the fine china I used, but everything was delicious! I am becoming quite the fan of this Blue Apron service, let me tell ya. I’m hoping to make the remainder of the meals tonight and tomorrow, so be on the lookout for those!
Sunday morning my Dad ran the Too Hot to Handle 5k in Dallas, but I’m an idiot and didn’t take any photos to document the event. You’ll just have to take my word for it that it happened! The race was quite literally Too Hot to Handle, as I found myself to basically be a wrung out dishrag by the end of the race. After heading home and cleaning up, I made my to the grocery store, and then to NTB for my idiot car to be checked out since the bulb light came on earlier that weekend. Turns out all bulbs are working just fine, it’s just my car who thought it would be fun to go in while I waited for over in hour in a waiting room with a TV set to the all consuming hell that is Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Thanks car!!!
And that was my super 5k filled and ridiculous Saturday and Sunday! I hope you all had a great weekend, and I shall catch you all tomorrow. Hopefully with another Blue Apron review!
