There was a lot of this:
A little of that:
And since i was designated driver, I had one (interesting) adult beverage and then stuck to water all night long. So now I feel well-rested and very hydrated. :) A surprising mix after being up so late!
Before leaving, I had chocolate:
And then, the Husband and I met our friend Cassandra and her boyfriend Jason at a fun, swanky restaurant named Mez. Thanks for treating us to an amazing dinner, guys!
Cassandra ordered the Illegal Bread (so good it should be illegal), which was a phyllo dough stuffed with cream cheese and feta with a strawberry jam.
I had two pieces – this was amazing! Something to try to make at home with store-bought phyllo dough, for sure.
The Mez wasn’t super vegetarian-friendly, so I fell back on an old technique by ordering a salad + a large side dish. I had the arugula, beet, and goat cheese salad:
And then macaroni and cheese. I definitely overdid it on the dairy (totally by accident, and my tummy hurt for a bit. Ugh!).
My adult beverage of choice was Ginger Beer with dark syrup rum. It was good but STRONG.
We had originally planned to just go home, but the Husband and I got a second wind when Nicole and Isaac called and said they were going out. We ended up club hopping to three bars and having a blast.
Lots of duck faces ensued.
We closed down the bars! I crashed into bed at 2:30, woke up at 9 to let out the dogs, and then we fell back asleep until noon. My dad woke us up by calling my phone, so I was jolted awake! We were suppose to do lunch and go hiking, but clearly, we need to pull together our lives first. :) My knee hurts still, so we might skip the hike.
We’re going directly to lunch, so I had some toast to hold me over.
So, do you do the duck face? It’s become a bit of a joke, of course, but I do sometimes find myself doing duck face (or peace sign flashes or fist pump poses). Smiling can be just so plain. 🙂
