I am getting a late start on my weekend recap. All I can say is yesterday was a Monday :) Our weekend started out with a little road trip. We drove about two hours away to find a Best Buy that had the cell phone we wanted for $1. The best we could do around home is to get the phone for $200. I would say four hours of our time was worth $398, right. It was also a nice excuse to take our new car for a longer ride - we still love it.
We knew it was supposed to snow mid-day, so we started out early. We decided to eat breakfast in our destination town before getting our phone, instead of eating lunch after getting the phones. I had looked up breakfast joints online and had settled on a place called the Blue Spoon. It is actually right on the edge of my college campus (new since I went to school though). It looked like a quaint little spot with a variety of breakfast options. I figured it would not be too busy since classes had not yet resumed from Christmas break. Was I wrong! The place was packed! It didn't help that it was tiny. There were wall to wall people - I am definitely not used to that for a breakfast place. When we were finally seated we were shocked (and a little uncomfortable) to be seated at a four top table with another couple. Yes, they consider their four tops two tables for two. I really wanted to eat there so I was ready to suck it up and go with the flow. But after sitting there for a couple minutes trying to concentrate on the menu we became much too uncomfortable and ended up leaving. I think the other couple was uncomfortable too - they didn't say a word to us or each other the whole time we were seated.
We did some scrambling and found another cafe to have breakfast. Much more spacious and our own table. We had a super friendly (and genuine) waitress, named Capri. My husband was a much happier camper.
We got home in time to see the Saturday Wild Card games. We watched some seriously crazy games this weekend. Not pointing fingers, but some of those players/coaches need to get their stuff together - that was embarrassing. This was my view for much of weekend.
Sunday my niece competed in the state cheerleading competition. I watched the livesteam of the event. How cool is that?
I prepped and put in the freezer last week. Fingers crossed that they turn out well. I plan to serve them with broccoli and a "reasonable" serving of mashed potatoes. Even without the exercise portion, I think my weight might be on a downward trend just from eating better. One step at a time :)
