before i knew it, the week came and went. it’s funny because the beginnings of my weeks are pretty slow, while the ends are full of adventure after adventure.
ever since i moved out of my brother’s house, i’ve been missing my nephews a ton. it’s been weird not getting to talk to them each day and see how they’re doing. so i decided to start going over there on thursdays just to spend some time with them. on thursdays, my sister always make sinigang, a traditional filipino dish. it’s one of my favorites!
after dinner, the boys and i were trying to figure out what to play together and we settled on the oregon trail card game. i was surprised that they made a card game version of this game, but it was actually pretty fun. it was really unforgiving, though, and offed the youngest of my nephews with dysentery twice!
saturday brought the cherry blossom festival in dc. cammy invited me out to take pictures, and so of course i wouldn’t say no. she did an amazing job taking solo and couple pictures for me. of course we also took quite a few together. i can’t wait to share all the photos with you!
i was surprised by how many flowers still remained even though it rained quite a bit this week. it was such a beautiful day – the perfect temperature, not too hot and not too cold. and even more so, the company was beyond words. i’m so happy i got to spend such precious time with them.
saturday evening i went to dave and buster’s for the very first time. i’ve always wanted to go, and so i took my chance now that one just opened up locally. i went with all my friends from volleyball and we had such a good time! i’m especially addicted to the coin drop games. i’m actually really good at them.
on sunday morning, we rolled out of bed super late and took leah for a walk. she’s such a sweet girl and really enjoys playing fetch. please excuse my bummy outfit – i didn’t expect to want to take pictures but the weather was just perfect and the feeling was right.
even though we got out of bed so late, we were still able to make it to brunch. there’s a lovely restaurant called first watch that tony loves, so he took me there. the aesthetic was what you would expect of a brunch spot, and i absolutely loved it.
the food was absolutely spectacular, which i see why he was so excited to take me there! i order lemon ricotta pancakes and they were absolutely sublime. i don’t think i’ve ever had a fluffier pancake. everything was so delicious, i can’t wait to go back.
i can’t believe how full my days have gotten. there’s always a new adventure around the corner and before i know it the hours are gone. each week i feel more thankful than the last. happy tuesday, everyone – hope your week is on the up and up ❤
