The parental unit came to visit this weekend. So did Isaac. It’s a good thing we aren’t the kind of people who let a little rain and wind get in the way of a good time. I kid…kind of. Regardless, we were able to fit in a few meals out, outlet shopping, and a short visit to the beach.
Here’s a little rundown on our weekend…
On Friday, Vishnu and I took my parents to Lime Fresh – one of our favorite casual places in the area. It was a huge hit! My parents loved it. We left absolutely stuffed, but somehow found ourselves at the fro-yo place next door!
That night Vishnu and I headed downtown for his school’s annual bar crawl. Good times were had by all!
Saturday was dreary, yet we still made our way to the beach.
Quite literally, it was the calm before the storm.
Next up, it was time to shop. No major purchases were made – just a couple of pairs of shorts for me ($12.99 at Banana Republic!!!!) and a shirt for Vishnu.
After completely tiring ourselves out, we headed to Sublime for dinner (post to come on this soon).
And then came Sunday – the day we stayed inside. We looked through the professional wedding pictures, watched The Kingdom, and ate.
The parental unit hard at work!
One of our tasty meals of the day – Aloo Tikki (small potato pancakes, chickpea curry, onions, and both sweet and spicy chutneys).
The parental unit left yesterday morning. Because of Isaac, I worked from home, and it was sad not having them around. But as one of my aunts likes to say, you always have to look ahead to the good times waiting for you in the future…there’s no point in looking back.
While I did over prepare for Isaac (radio, flashlights, water, canned goods, etc. all ready to go), I’m so glad that the worst of what we got was some heavy rain and wind. Talk about thankful! From what I see on the news, other parts of the country have not been/may not be so lucky. Please keep those people that have been/may be affected in your thoughts and prayers.
