All in all we had an amazing weekend. We watched plenty of basketball (WOO!) and did some small chores around the house at our own, chilled out pace. We had a spectacular dinner at G&M’s. My aunt and uncle have been raving to me about this place since they heard we were moving to Baltimore, and this was the first I’ve been there. It didn’t disappoint, I can tell you that! Do you see the size of those crab-cakes?! We ended up bringing home the equivalent of an entire dinner!
Sunday was supposed to be a day where I go shopping. Well… we kinda did… -ish. We drove up to White Marsh and started exploring and investigating, and ended up walking in to a Pier 1 store. We grabbed some fun kitchen stuff and headed back out. I didn’t see the chalk board wine glasses that they have on the site, but I have a feeling I could find them if we go back. If not, I might just have to order them. How much fun are those jars?! Somehow we ended up embarking on Jack’s first ever IKEA experience… For the most part we were pretty “Meh…” about the stuff we saw, but we did find a dining room table that we just might go pick up. It is a perfect 2-4 person dining table and makes a darn good gaming table. When we get a bigger place it will be great to go in a game room. From there, we made a mad dash to watch the rest of the Pitt v. Xavier game at Buffalo Wild Wings. So much for our diets… it’s MARCH MADNESS… Mmmm… wings and sports….
We spent some very random, spontaneous time assessing the needs of our garden, and doing some minor weeding and arranging of the climbing, flowering vines, and determining which kind of flowers with which to supplement. I don’t think Daffodils will do well back there because they need at least 6 straight hours of sun, but I can try. Roses might be difficult, but I think I’ll be giving them a shot too. I miss caring for my roses. It’s therapeutic for me. So next week we’ll probably wander our way back up through White Marsh and actually get to the mall and Home Depot as we originally planned. Maybe.
Overall… this weekend was pretty wonderful. The sunshine didn’t hurt, either.
