weekend notes

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you had a great long weekend, we sure did. There was lots of eating, shopping, napping, movie watching and more eating. Just how I like my weekends.

Now it's a new week and a busy one at that. It would be so much better if it would just stop RAINING!

Happy 8 years Jake, xxoo!

On Friday night, after we dropped off the kids, we headed straight to Lardo East. Have you been? It was insanely good. The drinks were fantastic and the food was spectacular. They have a great outside seating right on Hawthorne, which is always perfect for people watching.

We had big plans to sleep in every morning without the kids. Unfortunately, we never made it passed 7:15 every morning. Ugh!

Saturday I headed to Nuvrei for my first time and bought one too many French macaroons. So many options, but pistachio is always my favorite.

The rest of the day was spent barbequing where I made margaritas, guacamole and steak with morel mushrooms.

The Bent Brick is a cute newer place over in Northwest. They make all of their own sodas, from rhubarb to lavender to ginger, where you can then mix it with vodka, gin or whiskey. The duck sage sausage was the most memorable. Yum.

Our mini-vaca ended yesterday with a quick trip to the Nike Employee Store. Man how I miss that place!
