K got a lamb dish and he said it was “okay”. I thought it was really good! I got a chicken dish and honestly was less than impressed. Despite the seasoning, my chicken tasted pretty bland. My orzo was way over-cooked and bland. And I was disappointed that my green beans were canned. I wouldn’t count this restaurant out but I would definitely get something different if we ever dined here again.
BUT their baklava was amazing. Like, the best I’ve ever had. Ever.
So Saturday basically sucked. I woke up around 8 and decided after breakfast not to meet my family at the beach. I had a lot of things on my mind at work and I’m really stressed out, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to relax at all. I really didn’t want to spend the weekend from K and the dogs, esp because Beamer is not back to normal yet. And also, the trip to the beach is 5 hours… that would be driving 5 hours on Saturday and turning around and driving 5 hours back in Labor Day traffic today. So yeah, I decided not to go and went into the office instead.
I worked all day and made it home in time to watch the Hokies get their asses kicked. Then I worked all night until 2am. At least I had a helper…
When I decided not to go to the beach, I planned to work all day Saturday and put away my laptop for the rest of the weekend. So I spent the rest of the weekend just hanging out.
I went to Birkdale and Southpark today. I’m lusting over this bag (in purple, not navy):
Had chicken sausage, Greek pasta salad and pineapple for dinner one night:
And managed to take a little walk around the block earlier today:
Picked up some new lip gloss at Sephora tonight:
I’m ready to tackle this week. 14 days left at this rotation :)
Have a great (4-day) week!
