Amazing Weekend Plans

Pin It PIN IT!

I don’t have any new moving updates to relay to ya’ll, but for a good reason. I went out to a MUCH NEEDED happy hour with some of my favorite work buddies last night and didn’t get home until close to 10pm. As soon as I got home, I face planted onto the bed and woke up in my clothes. I know, not exactly the healthiest way to handle stress but it did cure my rage/temporary insanity. I have awesome colleagues, ya’ll. I did, however, manage to snap a few photos of the trendy bar we went to in Dupont Circle.

We ordered a trio of french fries for an appetizer, and to the waitress’s urging, tried the eggplant fries first (the middle fry in the photo below). I don’t know why I’ve never had an eggplant french fry before because it is the most heavenly thing I have ever tasted. We dipped it in marinara and it about made my life.

I have GOT to find a recipe for that.

In other news, THANK GOD IT’S THURSDAY. I know, there’s no TGIT, but right now, there needs to be. I’m so happy we are just one day away from the weekend. This week has been REALLY REALLY stressful for me in all of the facets of my life. I don’t think I’ve ever needed a weekend more. Plus, this weekend is gonna rock.

My amazing, handsome, AWESOME husband won tickets to the Backstreet Boys/New Kids on the Block concert on Friday! Yes, you can be jealous. My 13 year old self is jumping up and down, screaming and kissing the life size photo of Nick Carter on the wall right now. My husband and two of my equally boy band obsessed girlfriends are going with me.

Oh and it gets better. We have BOX seats through E’s work. Which means free food and free booze! We had the luxury of playing in the box in March when E won tickets to a Washington Wizards game.

My other favorite thing beside free food is when I get to meet someone famous. Now, before you get excited, it’s not like I met JT or Usher. Gheorghe Muresan, a Wizards basketball player and star of My Giant, was stopping by a few select boxes and he stopped in ours! It was pretty cool.

As you can see, he’s about 13 feet ball and his hand is the size of my face.

I’m really hoping that one of the BSBs or NKOTB come by our box just to pop in on Friday. I might just die if they do.

    Between your zucchini fries and Jacin's duck fat fries, I'm drooling.
