This ended up being a true ‘Parita’ weekend. With Vishnu working on both Friday and Saturday, I had lots of time to get the ‘must do’ things out of the way – cleaning, laundry, etc. And in between all of the musts, I made time for one of my favorite activities…reading!
You guys! I finished both Crazy Rich Asians and its sequel China Rich Girlfriend. I went on reading frenzy! I’ll share more about these books later, but I highly recommend both. If you’re looking for funny, crazy, over-the-top books, Kevin Kwan’s novels are it.
Before sitting down to read on Saturday morning, I turned my living room into a pseudo barre studio and completed a 40 minute online Barre3 workout. I’m enjoying the different workouts so far and even bought the Barre ball (because a towel just doesn’t cut it!). More about Barre3 online coming soon!
Saturday also included a little bit of baking. I had a hankering for cookies that combined peanut butter and chocolate chips, so I tried my hand at making some…without a recipe. And they didn’t out half bad! I’m sure I’ll be making these again soon, and next time I’ll jot everything down and share!
While I waited for Vishnu to come home from work with our dinner, I watched UGA kick S. Carolina’s butt! And then when he got home, we continued watching the game while eating eggplant parm pizza. YUM!
On Sunday morning, I woke up, asked VIshnu what the temperature was (a cool (ha!) 79 degrees), and headed out for a run. Umm, my run turned into a run/walk and then just a walk. The heat was unbearable. By the time I got home 45 minutes later, it was 85 degrees. CENTRAL FLORIDA, PLEASE COOL DOWN ASAP!
After I got home and got ready, we headed out for our lunch date that Vishnu planned. He made reservations at a restaurant in Tampa called Green Lemon, a hipster Mexican place (Vishnu’s definition!). The atmosphere was very relaxed, fun, and colorful, and the food/drinks were delicious and very fresh.
We started with spicy Bloody Mary’s. YUM!
For my entrée, I ordered a veggie quesadilla, and for his, Vishnu’s ordered a trio of tacos. We both left fuller than expected but happy with our choices. Everything was flavorful and satisfying. Exactly what we were looking for!
And of course, we ended the weekend with football!
Happy Monday and thanks for reading!
