The Last Long Weekend of Summer


What did you do this weekend?  Did you have one more getaway, a cookout, lazy days at home?  I feel like we did so much this weekend, without doing anything major at all – and sometimes that is just the perfect kind of weekend.

Mark and I went to Equinox on Friday night, without Barack and Michelle.  I don’t think we’ll go back.  Lovely service, and ambitious food, but nothing to write home about, not even much to write in the blog about…

On Saturday there were these delicious gluten free blueberry pancakes…

Healthy Breakfast Pancakes

I also had a wonderful afternoon with my girlfriends from AU – you might know them from here.

We went to lunch together, just the four of us, for the first time in years.  We talked about nothing, or everything, and it was great.  We also visited our alma mater, American University.  Then we went off campus to the DC Brau brewery to taste some local beer.

On Sunday Mark and I started our day with Yoga District, which is quickly becoming  our new weekend tradition when paired with the Bloomingdale Farmer’s Market.  Sunday afternoon we took time for our regular errands with trips around town and ended our evening with a delicious family dinner at Mark’s mom’s house.

On Monday we got up bright and early to stage a WSD home, which will be on market very soon!

We also drove around town to see the other WSD properties in their various stages of construction.  Then yesterday afternoon Cara and Jaci came over for some more laughter and story telling.  Some people can make you laugh about nothing at all; these are those people for me.

Then we ended our weekend and the last long weekend of Summer the same way we started it, with our very good friends, Jon and Kristin, and a delicious dinner of grilled fish, shrimp vegetables and wine.

What did you do this weekend?  I hope it was lovely.
