Remember that time that we had a 4-day weekend? Yea, we should go back to that. This weekend seemed SUPER short in comparison.
And that whole getting up thing this morning definitely a struggle. I’m pretty sure I could think of a whole list of things I’d rather being doing than waking up at 6am… wrestling bears, eating cockroaches… it was that bad.
But, on a positive note, we woke up this morning to a WARM house! YAY! We’ve been having some problems with our old thermostat which wasn’t really reading the temperature in the house correctly. You could have the thing set on 80, and it would still be 61 degrees in the house. Made for VERY cold mornings. But we bit the bullet this weekend and bought a fancy new thermostat, and woke up this morning to a lovely 72 degrees! I don’t have to eat breakfast with a blanket wrapped around me anymore!
Anyway, since it IS Monday morning and as much as I wish, there is nothing I can do to change that, let’s get to it and recap the weekend.
Friday night Chris and I braved the snow (HA, all 10mm of flurries of it) and headed into Fredericksburg to catch one more restaurant for restaurant week. This time we chose Kybecca, a restaurant and wine bar, that’s in the snazzier part of Old Town Fredericksburg.
I loved the feel of this small restaurant, with a mix of the old and the industrial modern. They also have a super fancy wine machine (seen behind Chris) where you can pour yourself glasses of wine. Pretty neat!
Like most restaurants during restaurant week, they had a specialty menu, so Chris and I went with that.
For the first course I chose the rabbit springrolls which were light and delicious. I havent had rabbit on too many occasions, so it was a nice addition!
For the salad course, I ended up with the mushroom salad, which had marinated mushrooms, arugula and parm. It was AMAZING. I seriously could have had a giant bowl of those mushrooms.
For my entrée, I chose the shrimp and grits. I was a LITTLE disappointed that there were only 3 shrimp, but the cheesy grits were delicious!
I was pleasantly full at this point, but we were told to try the coconut tiramisu, so we went with it. And it was MASSIVE (TWSS?)
So full, but so amazing.
We then went home and spent the evening watching the new Sherlock Holmes and digesting.
We had some big plans for Saturday: Antiquing. And yes, I realize that we’re basically 80 years old. But seriously, it was a lot of fun!
After waiting for the snow to melt a bit, we headed to Sperryville, VA to check out some antique shops before headed to Culpeper to check out a few more.
We may or may not have stopped at a distillery on the way too…
We ended up picking up a few things, one of which is going to become our next project. No pictures yet since we could only bring half home with us because of the size. Any guesses?
The whole reason for the antiquing day came about because I had plans to meet up with some of my coworkers (including one past coworker who left in August) for dinner in Culpeper. We spent about 4 hours chatting and talking shop. It was some much needed chill time given all the stress in the office!
Sunday is usually our cleaning day, but that doesn’t mean a good breakfast to start. We made some french toast topped with a berry compote. Simple and delicious.
Chris and I had another project in mind too: Pre-making some breakfast for the week. Enter the breakfast burrito assembly line!
We mixed in some hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, cheese and salsa (on mine only), individually wrapped them, and stuck them in the freezer. I’ll have to let you know how they turn out!
So there you have it, my recap for this weekend. As you’ll notice, there was not a ton of working on to be seen. I’m going to be honest, guys – I’m in a little bit of a funk. Ever since the end of the half marathon I’ve been feeling lazy and unmotivated. Maybe because I no longer have anything to train for? I am trying to do some soul searching this week and find a way to get back on track!
So tell me: What did you do this weekend?
