My weekend began slow, but it turned out to be quite eventful!
Last night I met my best friend for dinner in Montclair. We had planned on using a Groupon at Mediterranea, but the waiters wouldn’t let us order with it in this awesome lounge area in the back of the restaurant! After a long talk with the manager, we ended up just ditching the place and going to a fancy-ish (for us) Italian restaurant called Acapello Ristorante a short walk away.
There was lots of wine involved. I got a delicious (un-pictured) pasta dish with shrimp, calamari and clams in a light tomato sauce and cookie cake with mint chocolate chip gelato for desert.
It wasn’t the healthiest meal, but I really enjoyed the food and the company. No guilt here 🙂
Today I had grocery shopping on the agenda! My friend Brooke recommended I check out a farmers’ market about 15 minutes away, so that’s where I headed.
I walked away with two huge bags of produce for $15. Definitely will be visiting the market again.
After putting away my groceries, I made a quick pre-run snack and headed to my favorite running spot – a nearby duck pond with lots of flat paths to explore.
Now I have to force myself off the couch and over to the laundry mat. Some chores just have to be suffered through. I’m sure twitter will keep me occupied while I’m waiting for my clothes to be cleaned, however.
Hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday night!
