Hello & happy Monday to you! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend relaxing and celebrating Father’s Day. I had so much fun spending Saturday with my momma–we practically ate our way through DC!
Saturday morning, I headed out for a 4 mile run, but this run was extra fun since I had Brandon by my side!
It was warm out but dry and gorgeous. Brandon said he enjoyed it and wants to be my running buddy more often! I cooled off after my run with one of the best fruits ever.
I love cold watermelon after a hot run–so refreshing! We sat on the porch for a bit with Rusty to cool off, and an ambulance passed near our street. Brandon captured him mid-howl!
He’s so stinkin cute. In case you aren’t convinced, here’s a pic of him as Joe Cool.
He cracks me up! After showering, my momma and I headed to Eastern Market, a local flea/food market a few blocks away. I love all the fresh flowers they have out.
We decided to grab a light lunch at Senarts, the oyster place nearby. You know what pairs perfectly with oysters? Grapefruit crushes!!!
Deb is a huge fan of the grapefruit crush. If you ever want to come visit DC, I’ll take you and convert you too!
We ended lunch on a sweet note with some beniengts.
Look at that fried dough/powdered sugar combo! So good. We had a great mother/daughter day.
That evening, I cooked my dad (technically my stepdad) an early Father’s Day dinner since I knew I’d be gone part of Sunday visiting my dad in Maryland. I made cashew salmon, roasted asparagus, fresh corn, and picked up a loaf of cranberry bread from a local bakery.
It got rave reviews all around. I’m so glad I was able to treat him to a delicious meal to show how important he is to me.
We were up early Sunday morning, and I made a quick smoothie with frozen strawberries, protein powder, avocado and almond milk before heading to Trader Joe’s with Deb!
Yum yum. There’s nothing better than smoothies for breakfast in the summer.
We didn’t have a ton of time at TJ’s since I needed to hit the road, but my mom picked me up this dip to try. She raved about it and insisted I try it. No need to pull my arm!
Oh Mylanta. This stuff is dangerous. It has cream cheese and Greek yogurt in it and is freaking delicious with some pita chips. Get some next time you’re at TJ’s!
After TJ’s, I headed to Maryland to see my dad for Father’s Day.
I treated him to lunch at his favorite Italian place. It was nice to spend some time with him and catch up.
Sunday evening, my momma cooked the best dinner ever–soft shell crabs, corn, mushrooms, and caprese salad!
OMG so good. I love soft shell crabs but never make them for myself so I was super excited my momma made them!
I spent the rest of my Sunday prepping for my last two days of work (eek!) and relaxing with Brandon. Best way to end a fun weekend! With a glass of wine too, duh.
Hope you all have fabulous Monday!
Share your weekend highlights!
Are you a soft shell crab fan? Brandon gets weirded out by the legs!
Do you enjoy running with your significant other?
