Happy Monday! I had a very relaxing weekend but spent most of it fighting off a nasty cold (or allergies-- I'm not sure?!). I still found some time to fit in a few good things...On Friday night H and I had an after work date night at Bar Toma downtown. We had really great appetizers -- hot meatballs and tasty Burrata (fresh cheese made from mozzarella and cream). But I was very disappointed with the pizza - Penso Positivo (pancetta, fingerling potatoes and rosemary), it was sooo heavy and I think it's time to accept I am not a fan of pancetta!!
After dinner we went to North Face and I found the cutest rain jacket -- Romera North Face Jacket. If you know me or my style you should be a little surprised. I usually don't like "sporty" or "outdoorsy" clothing...but this coat is perfect! It's similar to a H&M coat I wore in Turkey BUT it's actually waterproof! For reference I am 5'4 and I wear a size small and it's available in bright blue, black and tan.
I slept in until 10:30 AM on Saturday-- which I haven't done for years!! I guess I needed it. When I finally got up we went sofa shopping at West Elm and found 3 great options (one, two, three). Later that day I finished another JoJo Moyes book -- "The Girl You Left Behind." It was SO good. Now I need to get my hands on something new. We ended the night with dinner at Flat Top (one of my favorites)... I made a delicious stir-fry with spicy thai basil sauce, brown rice, veggies and chicken. And we finished our taxes (party animals!)
On Sunday I did a little Spring cleaning and organized our vinyl collection. I also made lemon chicken and artichoke pasta (recipe post later this week!) and napped again (ugh allergies!)
How was your weekend?
