After several busy weekends in a row, it was time for a quiet weekend. An opportunity to catch up on sleep, do chores around the house and get in a little me time. Friday night after work I walked into Fed Hill for a much needed mani/pedi at Light Street Nails. There is something so relaxing about starting the weekend off with a little pampering and a fresh polish. #glamsquad
Post-mani, I met Adam for dinner at Mother’s. I had a shrimp lettuce wrap with sweet potato fries and Adam had a buff chick sammy. We had an early night and did a couple loads of laundry at home before heading to bed.
Saturday morning I woke up early, refreshed and ready for the day! I picked up my mom and drove to DC to cheer on my friend Lindsay who was in town for the Avon Walk to end Breast Cancer. This was Lindsay’s 7th year participating in the event and she walked 39.9 miles over the weekend. Lindsay, her aunt and her dad have raised over $32,000 for breast cancer research and support services since they got involved with the race in 2010. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, so it is a cause near and dear to our hearts. We were excited to meet up with Lindsay around mile 9 and walk with her a little to show our support. Lindsay – you rock! If you would like to donate to Avon through Lindsay’s page click here.
We gave Linz a hug and wished her luck for the next 30 miles(!) of her walk then my mom and I walked back to Teaism for lunch. Teaism is the best fast casual Asian inspired tea house and we’ve been going there since I was in high school. I got my usual chicken bento box and it was amazing as always. The fried chicken comes with an incredible sauce, brown rice, pickled cucumbers and sweet potatoes. My mom had the curry chicken which was also delicious and came with that ridiculous veggie skewer.
Saturday night we had some friends over to watch the Caps game and ordered Maiwand Kabob. Sunday consisted of a super lazy morning, a trip to the gym and some Starbucks. Then Jeanette and I headed to Canton Crossing for some shopping. A few hours and several purchases later we returned home with Samos carry out for dinner. Hello gyro salad, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and snuggling with my favorite fur ball.
Weekend = success.
