Hey there! Monday is upon us once again, which for me means it’s time to fill out more job applications. I have to vent for a second – I do my best work when I am out of my house, my room, etc. At school, there were at least five different coffee shops I could go to to get into the zone. Now, I’m home, and there are no coffee shops less than twenty minutes away from me (I’m not in downtown Pitt or something; we live in a suburb). What’s a girl to do!?
On Friday, I ended up heading out to work with my mom because there’s a Panera down the street from her. I set up shop and got to work. It didn’t hurt that she then bought me lunch 😉
There’s a lot more marvelous to share about my weekend, today! A lot of the marvelous comes from delicious dinners out with friends. Thanks to Katie for hosting MIMM.
I had plans Friday night to grab dinner at Burgatory (a pretty cool Pittsburgh chain) at their new location with Kaitlyn. Unfortunately, when we got to the restaurant, the wait was OVER 2 HOURS. UM excuse me? Their burgers are good, but we decided the 80 people in line ahead of us could enjoy them for the evening, especially after I called a different location to see what the wait time was and rudely addressed and hung up on!
Instead, we headed to Mad Mex since Kaitlyn hadn’t been there before, anyway. I got a glass of white sangria to sip on that was pretty good as well as chips and salsa to start. Kaitlyn and I always seem to go to Mexican restaurants! For our meals, we both got quesadillas. They were fabulous and veggie-filled.
On Saturday, I had to work for a few hours. Directly after, I had to see my brother off to his junior prom! I won’t lie – I teared up a bit when I saw him in his suit. He looked so grown up. Luckily I was wearing my sunglasses, so no one saw the tears.
Later, I drove down to the city to meet up with Erin and Cassie for dinner at a cute little Thai place called Smiling Banana Leaf. It was wonderful to see Erin again! These meet-ups will have to happen more often now that I’m home for good. We forgot to take a picture all-together. Oops!
For my meal, I had the green curry. I really love my Thai to be spicy, so I got a 7 on their spice scale even though Cassie mentioned that their spice levels were on the hotter side. It was a really tasty curry with lots of vegetables, but I was definitely sweating a bit as I ate! My mouth was on fire (I guess in a good way, though!).
Sunday was full of lots of relaxing and movie-watching with my mom! Just the way I like it.
Questions of the Day:
>> How spicy do you like your food to be?
>> What’s the longest you would wait at a restaurant?
