Hello and happy Marvelous Monday lovers!! Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was pretty fantastic with a great mix of relaxation, a concert and a movie, as well as some friend and family time! Here are the scenes from the weekend!
Friday I went out for my daily walk outside and stumbled upon the elusive dancing man! I haven’t seen him in a while, but he stands on street corners with headphones dancing and singing. I want whatever he eats for breakfast! I envy his boldness to dance in public!
Friday night the bf and I met up with a couple friends for happy hour at the Brixton on U St downtown. I’m not a big drinker but this drink, the Groggs, sounded good! It had Appleton V/X Rum, lime, and sugar. It hit the spot on such a warm evening! Plus, the rooftop bar was so cool!
And look- I saw Schmidt’s twin at the bar! Crazy!
If you need a new workout give this one a go! I was a sweaty mess and felt so accomplished after! Plus, nothing gets you going like this song while swinging that kettle bell!
After my workout I showered and made a light breakfast- leaving room for Saturday Farmers Market sampling and brunch with my momma and nephew!
After I inhaled a delicious iced coffee, we stocked up on fresh fruit and veggies. Check out the haul!
We stashed our haul in the car before hitting Le Madeline for brunch. I have seen this restaurant several times and always wanted to try it. Their brunch was pretty good!
I had oatmeal with berries, my mom had their eggs benedict, and my nephew (the weirdo non-breakfast-food-for-brunch fan) had chicken pesto pasta. I also ordered crepes Romanoff to share. The crepes had a cinnamon and rum-laced cream with strawberries. It was heaven!
After saying goodbye to my momma and nephew and relaxing a bit, I had some yogurt ‘soup’ with hemp hearts. I like my yogurt a little liquidy, so I add a splash of unsweetened almond milk and some hemp hearts for crunch. Yum!I relaxed a bit before picking up the bf and heading to the movies to see Star Trek. Yes, I am a proud Trekkie 🙂 The movie was really good! I highly recommend it- even for non-Trekkies, it was really entertaining!
We had a quick dinner from the hot bar at Whole Foods. I was so hungry I forgot to snap a photo. But lots off good stuff was had! Good thing there is no Whole Foods within walking distance, I would have their salad bar every day!
After dinner the bf and I headed straight to Jiffy Lube Live to see Tim McGraw! Yup, a Trekkie and closet country fan! Don’t judge me 🙂
I was so excited to see a froyo booth at the arena I just had to have it!!
Then I met up with my friend A and her friend D for the concert!
And check out that sunset! The photo doesn’t do it justice!
I was actually kind of disappointed with Tim McGraw- he only sang a couple songs I knew, and none of the popular ones. We actually heard all my favorites on the radio on the drive back from the concert! But I loved his opening act Brantley Gilbert!
Sunday morning I woke up craving the breakfast I had almost every day in Mexico- egg whites with jam, yogurt and granola. Plus, organic coffee I got in Mexico (in the South Africa mug I got for the bf 🙂 ) Simple perfection!!
I spent the rest of the evening doing chores and relaxing. It was a very Marvelous Weekend!
Do anything fun this weekend? What was your last concert? What is your favorite Sunday morning Breakfast?
Rock on lovers 🙂
