Did this weekend fly by for anyone else out there? Our weekend was the perfect combination of fun and relaxing.
Here are some highlights!
- Saturday Day Date
Ryan and I had a lovely day date on Saturday! It began with lunch at Earth Origins. We both hit up the salad bar and filled up on delicious greens, shrimp, tuna salad and vegetables.
Earth Origins carries my favorite flavored water, so naturally I bought a bottle of the Ayala ginger lemon peel water to quench my thirst. Ryan and I also split an Alternative Baking Company pumpkin spice cookie. The cookie is vegan and totally delicious! If you’re looking for a fantastic vegan pumpkin cookie and see this one at your local grocery store, scoop it up!
After lunch, we walked to the local movie theatre and saw a matinee for $6. (I think I am slowly becoming desensitized to the cost of movie tickets because I thought $6 was super cheap!)
Ryan and I loved the book Divergent by Veronica Roth and couldn’t wait to see the movie. (Side note: Did you know Veronica Roth was only 21 when she wrote Divergent!?)
As for the movie, I liked it but I didn’t love it. I really, really liked the book and thought the movie was entertaining enough, but not fabulous. As for whether or not I will see the next movie when it comes out? Absolutely.
- Boat Day
Ryan and I spent our entire Sunday on our friends’ boat with two couples and their adorable kids. It was glorious! The weather was cloudy for most of the day, but we still had a great time hanging out on the water, snacking and drinking.
Two delicious but not-so-healthy highlights:
Seagram’s Escapes Strawberry Daiquiri
Marshmallow Crispy Oreos
- Dinner at Stumpknocker’s
Yes, that really is the name of a restaurant! This was a highlight not because of the food but because of the atmosphere. (The food was good but not fantastic.) After a day on the boat, our group stopped by Stumpknocker’s for dinner on the way back to Ocala last night and had a blast watching the airboats take off on the river right outside of the restaurant.
I picked up a brochure and saw that an hour ride on an airboat is only $15! Not too shabby! Ryan and I have officially added “go for an airboat ride” to our date list!
- House of Cards
Thanks to my friend Leah’s recommendation, Ryan and I started watching House of Cards this weekend. We began the show on Friday night and watched a few episodes before bed last night. It’s already starting to suck us in!
And now Monday morning is here and it’s time to work. I hope you guys had a fabulous weekend!
