Then, I made brunch that included veggie omelettes and pancakes for Joe and I. Can we talk for a minute about these eggs?! I cracked SIX eggs and all of them had a double yolk!
This Saturday was a cut back week regarding our long run..so we set out for five miles. There are so many trails in Arlington and I love it. We ran a mile through the trail on the left…Lubber Run Park. Then we made it to the W&OD and Custis Trails for a bit before getting back to the main streets in our part of town.
45 degrees still calls for long sleeves and a headband to cover my ears for me. 🙂
It was a lazy afternoon after our run…cleaning up, getting ready for the day, a little Xbox playing by Joe. We ate a late lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. Honey barbecue boneless wings and a Caesar salad, because I like vegetables with all my meals. We also got macaroni and cheese to share!
Happy hour took us to the Cherry Blossom pop up bar in Shaw. For the past few holidays, several bars have banded together to create “theme” pop ups. There’s been Miracle on 7th St for Christmas, a Game of Thrones theme, and the Cherry Blossom Pub in the spring. One thing you must know about this is that it always includes a nice wait in line.
The sun was still up when we arrived, but by the time we were close to the door, it was much chillier. We entertained ourselves people watching, counting the number of people in front of or behind us, and watching cars attempt to parallel park. I guess if you can have fun doing that for an hour and ten minutes, you can have fun doing anything, right?!
The only good thing about waiting in such a long line is that you know you will have room to move and enjoy once you are inside, since they are so careful about how many people go in at once. I ordered the Calpico Fizz and Joe had the Cherry Blossom Lager. Both were super sweet! I was kind of tempted to order the drink that came garnished with a Rice Krispy treat. I mean, why wouldn’t you?! Instead, I made do with the marshmallow and strawberry that came with mine. 🙂
Other decorations beyond the Japanese cherry blossoms included Monarch butterflies and Godzilla.
Saturday the 10th wrapped up with dinner and a movie on the couch by 8 PM. A perfect day!
