Not that it's been all work and meeting some of our responsibilities around here. I've decided to embrace our Friday night out "rut" as not a rut but as the perfect way to enjoy the end of the formal work week. We rarely make a huge evening of it, sticking to some place local and fun. Last night, I was in the mood for decent bar food, so we made our way to The Fat Dog in Montrose, a fun little neighborhood that is very close and convenient. Before drinks and dinner, we stopped at the local bike shop to pick up a tire that needed some tweaking. While Michael was paying, I unfortunately saw this beauty:
I'm kind of obsessed now.
After I salivated for a while over it, Michael pulled me away - or the idea of dinner and drinks motivated me to salivate over something else. The "Fat Dog" experience did not disappoint! We went there for the first time in December when we had no power and were desperate for a good drink and decent food, and we really enjoyed it. This time around was the same. Good food and drink - no complaints from us.
Today has been full but fun - running errands this morning and working on and off this afternoon, but it doesn't have the rush feel that sometimes happens on weekends. I just went out for a short but fun ride (not on the beauty shown above), and since all of Southern CA must be watching the NFL playoffs, I was almost the only one on the road - or so it seemed!
So, yes, it's been nice to slow down the pace this weekend. Not to the point that I don't have a pulse, but I'll take the breather!
