Yesterday was one of those rare days where Handsome and I had off and weren’t obligated to some crazy list of events that sped out weekend into a blur that we wouldn’t remember three days from now. No, it started with sleeping in.
It was followed by a serious dose of mountain biking with a friend of mine.
Some hipster activities that involved leggings, Converse’s, over priced coffee shops, and loitering at one of our local bike shops.
We then tried to get all outdoorsy by trying on North Face clothing at the local outdoorsy shop. Proceeded by a long conversation at the pet store.
Lastly, we did what most American’s do on any given Sunday and wound up at a sports bar with friends, giant TV’s and jerseys galore. I know nothing of this football you speak of.
There was a bonfire this weekend with teammates, margaritas, a fond farewell to a great friend moving to a new chapter in his life, some comic shop display rearranging, and the complete and utter lack of good planning as I got really excited for Thor Thursday night with friends just to be reminded that I was going to be traveling to the beautiful Culinary Institute of America’s Hyde Park Campus
this last week… who needs Thor tickets?
Dulce de Leche Fluff Brownies
