Happy Monday, ladies and gents! I hope this weekend was exactly what you needed it to be. I know mine was!
It was filled with friends, yoga, and down time, but Sunday was my favorite because got to spend all day with Cory. He was skiing all day Saturday, so it was great to have an “us” day on Sunday.
It started off with a date at our new favorite place, Brick House Diner. I love that the staff is super friendly, the service is unbelievably fast, and we haven’t tasted one bad bite yet.
We’re notorious people watchers, and often find ourselves listening to other people’s conversations when we’re eating out. Because of that, I always wonder if anyone who might look at us would mistake us for a couple who has nothing to talk about!
and listening to other people’s conversations, we headed to another one of my favorite places:
As my friend LK pointed out, it looks like we arrived at 6 AM because no one was in the parking lot. We ended up getting there 5 minutes before the opened – it was so odd to NOT have to navigate a crowd. Just another perk of being a 55 year old trapped in a 25 year old’s body
Our third stop (all before noon, I might add) was the movie theatre.
Zero Dark Thirty was INTENSE. The movie starts out with a black screen and actual phone calls from people on September 11th. My mom is a flight attendant, and was flying that day in 2001, and my heart still races when I see and hear stuff from that day.
That said, it was fascinating. It was Cory’s pick, but I was enthralled the entire time.
All in all, it was a great date day! Now, it’s off to work…and then class. Ugh. Wish me well. This is the LAST SEMESTER of my graduate school career!
