Happy 3 day work week! I couldn’t be any happier, especially since this is one of my favorite weeks of the year! Plus, Ryan & Chels (my future SIL) come home for a super long weekend, so it will be amazing.
I didn’t too all that much this weekend. Saturday was a relatively lazy day spent watching Christmas movies in bed, after a 3.5 mile run and mobility at CrossFit. I was actually extremely exhausted and my body needed a lazy day, so that’s what I did.
I also needed to be rested up for a date I had Saturday night. And guess what? I FINALLY found sparks again. It was a really amazing night. We started with dinner at The Farm, which I hadn’t been to since Labor Day weekend! My roommate doesn’t like me going there only because of the history I have with the restaurant/bar, but I can’t let any of my past keep me from visiting places I love!
My date and I settled in the back alcove for dinner at the bar. If you’ve never eaten at a bar, please do. It’s so much better than a table. I hate eating across from someone and having to look at them if there are awkward silences. Luckily, there were none last night. Phew! Usually when I go on a date the guy will take the bill and refuse to let me pay, but my date grabbed the bill and then asked me if he could buy me dinner. I thought that was super cute!
While we were inside, we noticed the first snow fall of the year. It came out of nowhere, and was flying down! After dinner, we stayed at The Farm for a bit talking about the strangest things and cracking up. We then headed a few blocks over to grab a tea/coffee at Baked. The benefit of icy and snowy sidewalks are when a hunky beef stick offers you his arm to link yours into so you can hold on tight. I think I might like this snow thing after all. 😉
Baked is a really fun downtown cafe that offers tea, coffee, and adult beverages. We were there around 10ish, and it was busy! I could definitely see myself going there more often. Previously, when I would go out, we would start with dinner and then bar crawl for the night, so it was really nice to find a guy who didn’t mention doing that, let alone have a drink all night. Plus, he was so curious about CrossFit and Paleo, and my lifestyle didn’t phase him one bit!
I didn’t get home until a little after 1, and I have to say it was one of my favorite Saturday nights in a long time. I woke up around 9, still so exhausted, but I headed to the gym for a sweaty 3 mile run. Not before having to brush my car off. Ugh.
After my run, I did a little grocery shopping, meal prepped, and settled onto the couch watching Christmas movies all afternoon and doing some blog work. I’m so glad I have a friend who is as obsessed with Christmas and Christmas movies as I am. Jaime and I texted nonstop about the movies. It’s okay to not have a life this time of the year in order to watch all 50 movies that Lifetime and Hallmark play. 🙂
How many Christmas movies have you watched so far?
