After a long week for both of us and working later than I’d like to admit on Friday evening, Scott and I exhaustingly pushed each others’ buttons – poking and huffing over little, nit-picky things. We can see this clearly now, but at the time, we were pissed at each other. In his attempt to start the night over and kick the weekend off right, he suggested we walk Jack down to the Miwaukee Ave Arts Festival. After a protest on my part (I’d rather stay home!, I’d said; man, I was moody), he convinced me we’d have fun, spend time with our friends, and (obviously) look at art.
That night, we made our own prints at the Spudnik Press booth (which we plan to mat and hang as part of our living room booster), connected with an artist that had me drooling for donuts, and snacked on bad-for-you foods (and boy, was it yummy!).
We followed our Friday fest bright and early with a day of bicycles and brews at Tour de Fat, a favorite of ours that comes to the ‘hood once a year. This time around, we watched our intake of Sunshine, allowing us to avoid our afternoon slump and enjoy a late night barbecue on the patio with our neighbors.
As the weekend wound down, I treated myself to a bit of pampering with a pedicure (in Turquoise and Caicos) and a pint of my favorite treat (coffee Haagen Dazs, mmm).
Happy Monday, all! How did you spend the last few days?
Sounds like an awesome weekend (post Friday fighting), especially the fair food and pedicure.
We did nearly nothing this weekend and it was amazing! The highlights included grabbing a barbecue feast with my parents and making a chocolate layer cake with salted caramel frosting. Yum!
This makes me think about the movie Beer Wars. You can stream it on Netflix if you’re interested.
@Annie – you know, I think we have seen that movie… it’s been a while though (if it’s the one I’m thinking of!).
I always love seeing your photos, and I had to laugh when I saw a certain turkey-legged guy in your photostream.
Your weekend sounds pretty fun (except for the grumpy mood part). I was looking forward to going to a street festival in Los Feliz, actually within walking distance of my house, but was struck down by the flu, which I must have caught babysitting on Friday. I adore that little kid, but this is like the 4th time this year that she’s given me a virus.
Kalli, oh no! You’ve got to stop getting sick. Get well SOON!
My toesies have been done in Turquoise and Caicos all summer! :)
What a lovely week :)
