How’s your weekend?
Mine’s kinda blue.Not just because of the cloudless sky, but because I’m struggling to get over a nasty cold. I had planned to go on a long run on Saturday, but my stuffy nose and aching throat said no way, Jose.
I still had to go for a short jog, though, because I had somewhere to be — and on foot was the fastest way to get there! Plus the Dayquil had kicked in and I thought I was invincible and illness-free, which clearly isn’t true given the amount of Kleenex I have gone through in the past 15 hours. But anyways.Budget Rental Car, people. We had stuff to do in DC, Maryland, and Virginia yesterday so the only way to accomplish it all was with a real vehicle all to ourselves.
We got a snazzy red hatchback and drove that baby between DC and Virginia about three times. Anthony is moving into our future place this weekend!We got everything moved by noon (!!speedsters!!) and noshed on sandwiches and a local deli afterwards. Considering all of his plates and food is in boxes it was do or die. No really, it was. I would die if I skipped a meal.
Next up were quick showers and the road to Baltimore for a birthday bash!
But I can’t recap Saturday night’s glory without paying tribute to Friday celebrations first. Flashback to two days ago (which feels like two years ago), when we went on a double date to celebrate Miriam’s new job!Smoke & Barrel didn’t disappoint. This new(ish) Adams Morgan spot has lots of barbecued options… and beer options.I went out on a limb and tried the vegan “wings” which I’d heard were amazing. The rumors are true.Anthony kept it classic with a smorgasbord of meats and fried goodies. We loved the pulled pork — very tender with great, smoky-sweet flavor!The night ended with skeeball, which Anthony has never played before. He is a natural.I, on the other hand, should probably stick to running and boxing. Or just running.
More to come after we unpack all these boxes, assemble a massive table, go to Ikea, and paint two rooms!
