The Weekend that was ...

Hi Guys ... and blog! It's Monday already and I thought I'd jump in with a quick weekend recap since it was a chill weekend after a long week (with four court days, one of those days I had two big-ish hearings - which is a lot).

the weekend that was

After having to appear in court twice on Friday, with both court locations being 45 minutes apart and hurrying to draft a document before the end of the work day, I was beat. So naturally myself and some coworkers thought it was the perfect time to take a drink ....

drinks

On Saturday it was one of the attorneys in my department's birthday and we headed to a restaurant for a delicious lunch.

Indian curry
P.S. can we talk about the portion sizes at expensive restaurants? Its seems the more you pay the less you get. Seriously people ... I need more than one spoon of rice... It was tasty though!

On Sunday, I was honestly very moody and not much in the mood to do anything but scratch my bum. By evening I was a little better. I did some work, marked papers (I tutor) and then went for ice cream with my neighbours ...

Belgian waffle
Clearly my diet and sugar / flourless-ness is on a break. 

And that folks was my weekend...

It was a hectic week, but my weekend was chill and filled with food. I think its time to admit though that my new job and work in general, while I love it, is taking up a whole lot more of my time than my last job. It is what it is. I'm not going anywhere, I'm not making any excuses, its simply a fact.

In other news, I have an awesome recipe for the blog that I hope to post this week! Also don't forget that tomorrow is book club day and we review Throne of Glass!! Hope you guys join in!!

Have a great Monday guys!!!

  1. Umm that ice cream looks amazing! And I agree, the more expensive the food, the less you get. Who can eat just one spoonful of rice? If I'm paying that much I want a pot full! LOL! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  17. That's exactly why I can never go to expensive restaurants--the food is just too small. My appetite doesn't match my stature--I want a big plate! :)
