Weekend Recap: Lots of Meat

My weekend started with some hot tubing time (Josh's new place has one) and then stuffing myself with Josh's homemade meatloaf. It is seriously the best meatloaf of all time, and I could eat it everyday. Ok maybe not that often, but at least once a month :)

The next morning we went to CF. My back is finally starting to feel a bit back to normal. Then I completed this brutal WOD and everything ached again. Luckily this time it was from soreness and not injury.

Buy In: 400m Run, then:
Hang Power Snatch (95/65)
Slam Balls (20/15)
Wall Balls (20/14)

Buy-Out : 400m Run

I finished in 37:37 Rx and was exhausted! Immediately after the WOD, Josh and I refueled with a wine tasting at Total Wine and then a meatloaf sandwich at home. Yum. Meatloaf is better on the second day. While Josh organized his new bachelor pad, I soaked my soar muscles in the hot tub. 

Later that afternoon we watched the Aggies BTHO Mississippi State. It was our last home game of the season and possibly Johnny Football's last home game as well. I keep saying my prayers at night that he will stick around College Station and Aggieland for one more season. Here's to hoping. 

That night Josh and I had the pleasure of having dinner with our friends Jeremy and Meredith and Jeremy's parents. Jeremy's parents are so much fun and we guzzled sipped on cocktails, feasted on incredible Italian food, and visited about all things Texas. It was a great evening and made me homesick for the Lone Star State. 

The next day, Josh went with me to look at some potential apartments and then that evening the girls and I went out to celebrate Lanie's birthday at Le Diplomat. The French restaurant reminded me of my favorite spot in NYC, Balthazar, and I loved every single thing we ordered. My Steak Au Poivre is not pictured because I devoured it the second it arrived. It was cooked to perfection (medium rare for me) and the peppercorn sauce was to die for, and I will definitely be going back ASAP. We ended the night with cocktails at The Gibson, a speakeasy on U Street.

Yesterday, I had the day off. Beth, Alycyn and I went to Georgetown for an afternoon of shopping. When we parked the car, we noticed that Georgetown Cupcake had NO LINE. This almost never happens and usually the line is at least a 45 minute wait. We knew cupcakes were meant to be. After our sugar break, we each went in search of our specific treasure. Beth needed sunglasses, Alycyn needed a yoga mat holder, and I needed an outfit for Josh and my engagement pictures this weekend. Luckily with Beth and Alycyn's help (and my mom's via the Iphone), I found the perfect ensemble for our photo shoot this weekend and the girls found what they needed as well. I ended the long weekend with a bowl of homemade caldo. It was my first attempt at ever making this Mexican style soup, and it turned out pretty well. Not as good as El Jardin's in Fal, but alas, I tried.
